I'm serious about having fun, because I've determined that if I'm not having fun with the pipeline, it's not worth doing in my free time, aka nights, early mornings, weekends. This is my final Monday where I have the luxury of writing and editing all day long on a Monday. I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
This past new year's was one of the best ever.... So fun that I am still having a difficult time in terms of getting back to my regular routine of obsessively documenting the neighborhood. It took a lot of energy to convince myself that what I need to do is get back into the saddle, for myself, for phlash, pat, dika, and-- new!- a new helper, "Wolverang" who is not of this neighborhood, but will be a contributor. Wolverang has an audio device used in some radio projects, so if I figure out how to integrate audio interviews in the pipeline, we will use those too! Yesterday we interviewed a few business owners as well as a few citizens and delved into the historic bar "project."
So, back to work. Happy first Monday of the year.
