oh my I cannot believe thanksgiving was just 4 days ago- time just blurs by with such a full life. I hope your holiday was wonderful and joyful and full of good food.
I got to meet up with a very good friend of mine from grad school and NYC which was a total treat. But of course that always gets me thinking about the city and my career and all that fun jazz.
I am trying to embrace the ebb and flow of my practice, my career and the time of my life but sometimes my impatience and ambition make that very hard. I really miss nothing about living my day to day life in nyc but I do worry about how my career will grow and get better not being there. Boston's scene is so difficult as the galleries are mostly conservative or the hipper ones are very anti-aesthetic in style so I am so struggling in finding a place for my work here. And it is so hard to stay involved in nyc when I am not there. Life here is so much more suited to my soul even if I do not see enough good art on a regular basis. But yet I do. A bit of a ramble but a lot of what is going on in my head this weekend.
How do you have the career, with the work, with the life you want? The answer and balance is there but I am still figuring it out. Does anyone know the secret? ha.
