Last in Love

Okay, so that other big show is nearest to my heart, but Becky & Karyn's combined aesthetic and curatorial skills for putting together these lovely trunk shows are a definite spot of warmth in this cold winter city. I'm pretty lucky to spend my last show in Toronto in the company of this incredible list of people!

Static Winter Movement

How is it that I fill my time in Toronto so completely and still feel like I do absolutely nothing...all the time. My family certainly wonders. I think it's January's lack of daylight hours and my own lack of a good night's rest. I'm just floating through space and time working my way through an enormous to-do list...of what?? I'm not even completely sure. Finding an apartment in Berlin, learning German, making books, felting dolls, fretting about various inadequacies.

Maybe I'll just be thankful that I've got the time to do these things right now without the worrisome burden of finding the time to do these things.

I'm feeling a little unsure of things as the hammer comes down and there's no denying the new year. I think what to call it has a lot to do with it -- I don't like saying 'two-thousand-ten' and 'twenty-ten' sounds like it's over before it even begins.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not all down and out. Certain changes in the months ahead simultaneously buoy my spirits and terrify the crap out of me. Also, I'll feel a lot better when my calendars are in order for this mess of confusion we call time and space and 2010.
