Doesn’t feel like there’s much to say today, unfortunately.

Days Spent on Project: 863
Location: NW Portland, OR
Person I would have sent it to: Well, this one may be silly, but…
My devising partner for The California Project, Vinnie, he and his wife, Sarah, had a baby last February. I was aware that a baby would someday be in the picture as he and I started to work on The California Project, sure; it was a little apparent with the kinds of conversations he had with a fellow professor who recently adopted a child.
So, this one is for Hallie who showed up back in February. She’s a little over four months old now.
Think about that… Born in February… Nine months prior to that is May.
I arrived in late April and stayed through mid-May. Eek.
I joke to myself that with all the creative energy flying around during those weeks, we all needed an outlet.
But, glad you’re here Hallie! Your parents love you!
Music I listened to while sewing: More Sia today.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: I’m still wading into a funk right now. I feel like I’m missing something, missing out on something, missing people and places. Most of all, I’m feeling a little lost. I guess.
I’m at work. Because it’s now July, the new theater season has started, which means I can dive into the shopping list of things to purchase for the shop for the upcoming season. It also means my raise for next season was approved; they’ll raise my “hourly rate” by 75 cents. Yes, I’m salaried and I don’t get paid by the number of hours I work (how I wish I were!), but for the next twelve months, I get a whopping extra $30 a week. Or $6 a day if I worked five days a week. Or $5 a day when I work six days a week. Or under $4.30 a day when I work 7 days a week.
Anyway, why the funk? Why did it start last week and how can I get myself out of it? I’ve been going to the gym daily. I’ve been sewing these Cranes. I’ve read through the books on my nightstand.
I think I’d like to phone a friend today.
Time to dive more into The California Project, too.
Time to get another hobby.
