making is hard. Its hard because there are always things to do that pull you away from making. I haven't spent nearly as much time making photographs as i have reading or working.
Now, for me, working is making. I make software. Big software that involves big money, big headaches and big fun in interesting proportions. My sense of balance is skewed lately (for a long time now, really) and i have been trying to reprioritize.
A recent twitter quote from why the lucky stiff and the recent making series on 43folders (part 1 - Bad Correspondence, part 2 - The Job You Think You Have and part 3 - One Clear Line) were very refreshing because they are very close to what i have been thinking about lately.
when you don't create things, you become defined by your tastes rather than ability. your tastes only narrow & exclude people. so create.
I am making the normal (read, ridiculous) amount of stuff at work and re-evaluating everything else to make more at home. Working less outside of normal hours, ignoring other stuff and just making time to work on stuff i have been neglecting. Wish me luck!
