In the pursuit of...
-Grabbed the camera to film when I woke up and was surrounded by a beautiful thick fog.
-Baked bread and filmed it all for an 18 second clip. (I forgot the salt, but it was delicious anyway!)
-Got (old!) plum goo all over my arms and my jacket. It was kind of gross. Hurray for soap!
-Woke up at 2 in the morning to film the full moon during a penumbral eclipse.
-Walked around barefoot outside...in November in Idaho.
-Took a trip to a local nature park and somehow didn't think about the water being mostly frozen...in November, in Idaho.
-Played with the best dog in the universe*, Captain Blackheart, Pirate Puppy** Scourge of the Seven Seas.
*Yes, your dog is also the best dog in the universe. This is just how these things work.
**No, he is not really a puppy anymore. I hope we have lots of years left together. I am kind of sad that we probably do not.
-Dug around in one of my (mostly failed) garden buckets. I did not manage to successfully grow radishes, but I did have roots for art! (there were flowers and pollinators in the summer. Wait. Why did I think these were a failure again?)
-Looked up regulations on if you are allowed to film in a United States Post Office. (Answer: Only if it is for personal use. Anything else and you need to get permission.) I probably would have been fine and could have just pleaded ignorance if I hadn't gone and looked it up. Oh well, I ended up liking the “P.O. Box keys being lowered down through the wood pile” shot better than what I had originally envisioned anyway.
-Managed to be working on a day in Southeast Idaho when I wanted it to be windy, and it wasn't windy.
-Was able to recycle and use some clips I had filmed but not used in Runescore 4.
-Really had fun taking advantage of the fact that I had learned how to utilize the picture-in-picture and opacity settings on my video editing program to layer and layer and layer and layer...
-Embraced the fact that while I absolutely have a tendency to procrastinate, sometimes what looks like procrastination is actually percolation.
-After already completing one Runescore (4: Othila/Separation) I was able to trust in the process even more this time around, making it a satisfying and enjoyable experience.
