382. Not Losing Sight of the Forest

Last day alone and I simply drew a line and finished the office space, although I could have done a lot more sorting.

But even so the room that now serves as dining, office and living-room for about 20 sq meters still felt … nice in the evening. Like it was actually a real room in a place where we lived and not just half-storage. So I have accomplished what I wanted and needed here.¬†Thoughts too about family health, X-mas logistics, earning money and carving time for art and the occasional bleep about where our relationship is going with all this 24/7 baby-focus. They stood in line.

I knew I couldn’t really solve any of those ‘items’ on the agenda, and I was very tired in the late afternoon, so I took a walk, ate some quick food and then went home and watched a movie – Wind River. I felt only a little bad about not drawing or watching educational videos on my last free night. But it was necessary to recharge and keep some kind of balance, or so I felt. Well, it felt right. Right this day, the hyper-focus on either drawing as relax or business videos as 5 minutes pastime between diaper changes and house tasks did not feel right … simply because that context was not there. Not until tomorrow anyway.

But the bottom line with my intensive time management scheme is not to loose sight of the forest for the trees, I guess.

It was a decent movie, too, if a bit uneven in its storytelling. But I’ve always had a fondness for those great snow-clad mountain ranges – on TV, mind you. And forests. So I should see them once in a while.
