I'm temporarily taking down my gallery as I work on some totally new things. I also have a friend, Robert Mingoa, that is helping me create a totally new layout. Hopefully, I'll have some brand new work up in the next few weeks. I'm in the middle of a project that I'm really enjoying and this weekend I am going to lock myself in the darkroom and just get work done.
I'm starting to find some balance in my life. Lately, I have been struggling most with drowning out extra stimuli and focusing. New city. New stomping grounds. New adventures. But, that doesn't mean I should let myself be torn in a million directions. Frustration is just part of the process, but I think I'm centering myself now and soon I'll be golden.
I need to make SF feel more like home so that it is less stimulating. I need to do more so that I can shut down when I do less. This sounds like an oxymoron, but it is like the Parisians who walk by the Eiffel Tower or the Florentines that commute past the Uffizi. When it becomes everyday, it is easier to drown out. Not to say that I am condoning walking through life desensitized, but I'm craving a little more mellowness.
