Jeah, so 2006 already.

I snuck over to the Asylum at the last minute for some festivities with chebutykin and cajones, and had a nice quiet easing into the Gnu Ear. It was all very last-minute-- I think I got there after 11:30. I hadn't really planned on going anywhere, but Chris had called earlier and planted the bug.

Lots of introspection offline lately. Lots of spiritual and artistic gnoshing that I haven't really been putting up here. Not really sure why, other than it's very internal.

To me, spirituality and artistry go hand in hand. And I've been neglecting the spiritual side of the creativity, pushing it back to the practical, making it fit into molds that aren't really mine.

I'm overextended. Stretched too thin, like a gullible piece of tape. It explains a lot of the hunger that I've been feeling, a lot of the restlessness. I need to pull it back and get back to the core of what I want to do.

Those of you who are artists of various kinds and who have shared your work, I thank you. It really does mean something when I see friends do wonderful things, and it reminds me that somewhere deep inside me lives something that needs to get out and breathe. I am stronger for what you share.

There is no such thing as coincidence. There is only synchrony.

Oddly busy day today.

I got my ass started on the SybilReplicant after having her shelved since Mom came down-- Mom probably wouldn't understand why I had a naked female torso hanging around-- but I did the first-round sculpt which I think turned out pretty decent in a slightly mannequinesque way.

I also worked on the backfocus ring on my camera lens. It's a temporary fix at best, but it might be enough to work for as long as I need it to. I'll find out tomorrow.

I'm probably gonna need some help with some of the effects shots later this month. I think a lot of them will end up being done in the Big Broken Basement™, but I could really use an extra set of hands for some of 'em.
