My dear friend Jan said something to me tonight that hit me profoundly. She said, “you are more important than the work”. Well, ok, she actually said, “you’re more important than your work”, but that’s not how I remembered it when I got into the studio.
I have been working straight-out the past 5 weeks or so, plus I’m in the middle of a veritable metal riot working on a new collection of pieces. I have not been eating my vegetables, getting exercise, or spending enough time with friends.
