But I love this work of art, because it came from nowhere and it became something that I enjoyed so instantly. I remember New York vividly if I look at the picture, but might not recall so much otherwise. I recall the methods we had to use to get this slightly wet piece of art home in what could be described as a monsoon-like patch of weather in New Jersey.
I want to make something like that. Just produce something, get some gratification for something bizarre and unique. Doesn't have to be made in ten seconds, but I do need some kind of project... it used to be livejournal icons or designing levels on video games, but can I make something outside of the realm of the technological? Am I actually going to learn some craft in the near future? Gosh. That sounds substantial. I wonder if I can handle doing that. I could become the next Grozart.
I also wonder if I'll find something tangible that makes me enjoy Seattle as much as I did these excursions to NYC.
Update: I'm feeling a void because I stopped taking photos! How did I forget?
I stopped because my camera is kind of broken, and because Jamie needed my memory card. Her pictures are better and have more meaning, and so I never asked for the card back, to put into my fritzing camera. But damned if that wouldn't be a fun bit of instant gratification. There are some shots of graffiti I see every time I take the bus to Tacoma that I want to have kept on this computer.
