― Vladimir Nabokov, Laughter in the Dark
Occasionally I hone in on some superstition thinking it a coincident. For instance, every now and then I stay up late, work past midnight, sleep late and wake up to emails or messages about sold work and think, " I should sleep late more often." And on more than one occasion I've gone out of town to return to similar good news in my inbox and think, I should go out of town more often. Logically I know that leaving town, or sleeping late have nothing to do with selling work or invitations to exhibit, (okay, so there is a direct correlation with leaving town and being invited to show) but I still enjoy a little magical thinking every now and then.
Before I left town I was mentally paring down my possessions to a tidy sum like 200 or something insane. After I came back, even more so. Meanwhile though, I am splitting my time between the paint studio and the watercolor studio in preparation for some shows.
Spring is good.
