|Old school artwork|
We're halfway through January - have you been keeping your resolutions? Or are you like me & you resolved to not really make any resolutions?
Doing // We've been doing a major clean of the house for the past few weeks. Heather & I decided we wanted to lessen our material load, so we've been donating/throwing out things we don't need or use. I had no idea how much stuff we had until we started to go through it. The most painful collection to sift through was all my artwork from high school & college. I realize I don't need it since I have digital copies of everything, but it still hurt to part with some of those pieces. I do feel mentally lighter after having gotten rid of so much stuff. The cleansing is a positive thing.
Watching // In the spirit of downsizing my personal possessions, I watched Tiny: The Movie. I'm intrigued by the notion of living with spatially forced disciplines in terms of possessions, movement, & everyday activities. It's inspiring & motivating seeing people live perfectly comfortable lives in 25% of the normal housing space.
Listening // I've been on a major Neko Case kick lately. Like, major.
Feeling // I don't usually get to personal here on the blog, but maybe today I'll give it a shot. Do you ever get down? I get chronically down. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does, it's enough to cripple me for days or even weeks. I hate it - it stifles my creativity & leaves me feeling exhausted & worthless. There's never anything wrong, I just sometimes feel wrong. I thought I'd share this since we're well into winter & the lack of sun is probably making everyone feel a little down in the dumps. Maybe we can feel down in the dumps together.
