2016 Week 1

I start this with a bit of a laugh. The intention, of course, is to offer a weekly observation on what we've been up to, what we're looking forward to, etc. And here we are at the end of the first week in the New Year, and the resolution to commit to that weekly reflection is already flagging.
Time poverty, of course, is the issue and one worthy of reflecting on...later.

I've tried to stay away from the annual barrage of "ten bests" and "trends to watch for." I've generally thought these reflections/projections to be a bit shallow and self-centered. I wonder, however, if their omnipresence has caused a background influence on my perception of where we are now. I walk through the studio and, with a perspective broadened by the holiday break, now want to restart everything currently in development. A yearning for the new.
