How are you? It's been a minute. The time has been moving quicker it seems as we come upon the Fall Equinox and the end of this strange summer. I've been... better. And I hope you have been as well.
Lately I've been reading - a lot. Audio books, eBooks, physical pages... autobiographies, science, horror, fiction, romance, comedy, non-fiction, self-help... It's been lovely. I haven't read this much since I was a teenager - seized by the written word. Drowning in art. Movies, series, documentaries, podcasts, books, comics, and articles - it's been wonderful and I am grateful for this privilege. The Libby and Hoopla apps for library books have changed my life. I don't think I've read and borrowed this many books from the library since I was in grade school.
At the start of the year, I read a wonderful X-mas gift: The Incal by Jodorowsky and Moebius. As the year went on I read How to Change Your Mind which was made into a Netflix series of the same name that I also watched. Reading Fight Club and Homage to Catalonia. Seeing Perfect Blue for the first time. Reading Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. Watching the first season of the animated series Aeon Flux for the first time.
I feel like I've had a creative awakening, but I have no idea how to utilize it, create with it or employ this feeling.
Because of this paralysis, I've dropped myself into old lost projects hoping to find something new in them. I finally made new reels: one showcasing in a fun way that feels the most like me, and the other one is for folks that need more assistance with their online presence and is straightforward.
There's a rather big project that I'm in the middle of finishing up for a client, that while it's not a huge creative endeavor, it's still been a fun and interesting project to help with - it's been great! It feels like helping folks achieve their goals and it feels good, man.
Guess this is a short entry for now. I just wanted to share some of the wonderful art I've been ingesting and sealing this little moment in time.
Hope all is well in your world, and till next time,
