In the winter of 2010 my entire life changed.
When I say changed, I really mean explosive upheaval the likes of which I’ve never known. Yeah, kind of like that.
Not only did I end a twenty year relationship, move from the home I loved, relocated to my hometown, which I loathe, and try to fit in with a family I did not know, but I found a man that I had adored 25 years earlier.
Oh, and I lost every piece of work I’d ever done.
Okay, not every piece. I found a few stray pieces on old hard drives and a couple of discs, but the bulk of it…gone. (I did find one disc that read “all my work, 2009” but it had a giant gash down the side and refused to play on any of the 20 devices I’ve tried it on.)
Please don’t lecture me on backups. I had backups. I lost it all. Just let it go.
So, it seemed the winds of the Universe were telling me that it was time for a change. And it did it in the most gentle and loving way, because I’m never the one that needs a giant kick in the ass to get moving.
Okay, I am. And I’d venture to guess the Universal winds knew it too.
So that’s what I’m doing, and in this blog you’re apt to find photos, drawings, digital work, writing bits from what I’m working on at the moment and general reflections on a creative life.
All the old posts are private now. Maybe they’ll be back at some future date, maybe not. I’ve lost so much at this point that I don’t want to just outright delete them. (Take that crazy Universe!) It’s still Sneaking out at Midnight because that’s just me, sneaking away, finding hidden worlds and trying to get away with a glimpse of the wonder of it all.
