Just wanted to share some photos of my beautiful friend Johanna, who, at the time of the photos, was 7 months pregnant... now she's only a couple of weeks away from her due date. She and her husband Nathan came down for a visit in August, and she and I played in the studio while it poured outside.
I can't wait to meet the person hiding out in there... I've known Johanna since we were in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" together as Oberon's fairies in 10th grade.
This fall promises to be busy in a different way than the past 9 months have been busy. I'm cutting back on my freelance in order to build a better body of work, in hopes of getting more interesting and higher-paying freelance in the future... and I'm also building a curriculum for 8 weeks of photography classes at a school for very, very troubled teenage girls, which I'll be co-teaching as well. I'm really looking forward to that.
Today, while filling out a CORI form so I can work at this school, I had to list all my addresses for the past 7 years. I almost couldn't do it. I figured there are about 10 of them, just counting those that were more than a couple months' duration. Crazy, ain't it? I wonder where that number will be by the time I'm 30? How many more times can I stand to move all my crap around (the key being, of course, not to acquire too much crap)?
I'll be checking in with you well before then, but expect slightly less frequent (but more exciting! More colorful! More fantastic!) posting in the near future.
