Yesterday Gerry and I picked up Wesley at school and drove up to Pilot Mountain for a perfect fall day walk in the woods. We are so lucky that Wesley is only an hour and a half away, that she lives near the mountains and that she likes spending time with us. If we call her and say we are coming that way, she is always ready to go with us. She only has classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays because the film students need a lot of time outside of the classroom to make films, so she can get away for a few hours on Mondays and Fridays which are often the days Gerry has off.
I have decided to disconnect more from the computer and get outside more. I feel better with physical activity and computer time is not doing much for my physical well being. I started run/walking every morning and yesterday we went on quite a trek to some new boulders Gerry found at Pilot. So you won't see me liking and friending folks on Facebook, Tumblr got boring for me pretty quickly,so I'm not spendig a lot of time there, I don't pin things, and I'm not endlessly surfing around looking at pottery I wish I made anymore. I won't be giving up my blog anytime soon or reading other blogs, but that's it for computer time, except for emails. I'm tired of trying to write artist statements, updating my resume, filling out show applications, looking for shows, blah blah. Way to much computer time!
I have two big shows coming up and I have to get a lot more made for them. My priorities for now are spending time with Gerry and Wesley when we can all be together, getting some exercise, eating well, getting a bunch of work made for the holiday selling season, seeing my friends and family when we all have time and enjoying life.
That's about all I have time for and that's plenty! Here's a quick video of our day in the woods. We are having some incredible weather right now. Life is so good :)
