Life is pretty brilliant at the moment...

Not writing, which is fine, but beginning design work on some paintings for an international show. Desperately attempting to come up with research for a dissertation (hey, no one likes to make a fool of herself or look stupid, LOL), and getting through tense moments like work-related exams, demanding assignments and deadlines.

What I miss about writing is NOT the penning - have written about what? 2 - 3 million words? but the research. I love obscurity, and even though archaeology supplies lots of that, it demands a certain level of formality...and you can't just toss in the kitchen sink and link it with more research the way you can in a novel.

Looking forward to some design work...
