Got so much work again that time remains working against me. The queue refilled itself with projects for the non-paid as well. After being sick for a few weeks, all I want to do now is just lay around and binge watch documentaries like the one I just saw on Gore Vidal. Getting out of the funk and back into action requires a jumpstart. My lens kit slowly grows. In few days, a 24mm prime lens will join the lineup. I like the 14mm, but it’s a T3.1 and very very wide. The 50mm is supposed to be the go-to lens, but my camera is Micro 4/3rds so it’s kinda tight. The 35mm will be the only real lens left to acquire, which come May won’t be a problem. All of this leads toward the new master plan.
I started looking at what I had on my various scribbled of things I wanted to get done. I found a few things that I had not actually made from 2013-2014. These were when I was still teaching at one school and I thought these might help. Well, they can help, just on a broader level. I plan on looking at these for the Sonnyboo Podcast series now, and possibly making them interactive as well.
I’m finding it difficult to schedule my short film when my dance card fills with paid work, as well as the team behind the scenes. I want to get to this desperately. I need my creative side to be properly sated. Soon. We shall see.
The cats in Rossland continue to disrupt much of my activity. It’s like they tag team me for distractions. Lorenzo has grown some balls back, just not literally or when it comes to humans. He is becoming a lap cat, which is a new phenomena for Lorenzo.
I’m sifting through this time in my life in a general state of contentment. Food tastes good. Sleep remains somewhat peaceful (with a notable exception to nights when Princess Kitty Awful-Cat escapes her basement tomb and wreaks havoc among everyone on the first floor). Conversations stay positive and encouraging.
This is a golden time of peace and love in Rossland.
“Sometimes I get to feelin’
I was back in the old days – long ago
When we were kids, when we were young
Things seemed so perfect – you know?
The days were endless, we were crazy – we were young
The sun was always shinin’ – we just lived for fun
Sometimes it seems like lately – I just don’t know
The rest of my life’s been – just a show.
Those were the days of our lives
The bad things in life were so few
Those days are all gone now but one thing is true –
When I look and I find I still love you.
You can’t turn back the clock, you can’t turn back the tide
Ain’t that a shame?”
