The Problem with Being Poor Is It Takes Up All of Your Time

That quote from Willem de Kooning has, sadly, been a truism of my life of late. However, I am committed to changing that in a significant and lasting way. Hear that universe? I'm putting it out there. Money is such a complex issue for so many of us and, though I'm really not sure why that is or should be, I'm doing all the work necessary to uncover and transform my own issues around the gilt. Wish me luck.

So that is one reason for the dearth of entries on my blog recently. The other is a happier and, yet, an ironic reason. When I started this I thought having a regular place to record my knitting history and deposit my thoughts on any and all topics would give me practice writing. I'm not sure why I thought that, since I am not overtly interested in being a "writer," but be that as it may that was the idea. Since then, a friend of mine who is an independent television producer asked if I would collaborate on a project with her. A few months later, lo and behold, I'm writing so much with her on this project that I don't have time to post. Reminds me of when I took a job years ago in the music industry (yeah, back when there used to be a music industry). As an actor I thought, "Great! I'll learn something about the business side of entertainment, but I won't go crazy being around all these projects I'm not in and all these people who are doing what I want to do. I mean, it's not like I'm in a band!" Not two years later I was fronting a band, playing all the local venues, and even co-writing songs. Hah.

But this is a much pleasanter development. The project is exciting, my partner is amazing, and we're getting reinforcement.

There is actually lots of knitting going on! And even a little sewing. If I really get it together over the weekend, there will be pictures to come....
