So I did.
I have never felt so free as I have lately. Even though my rotoscope (rendered & beautiful) could stand alone as my thesis piece (totally didn't see that coming!), I'm making more and more work. But having that breathing room means that I can pick up some twigs over lunch and tell a story after dinner. What a marvelous day! And now a marvelous night... I'm probably not sleeping. Sometimes it's better that way. I like feeling accomplished when the sun rises.
