Wasn't sure if I was actually going to make it. Long year. I often wondered what the hell I was doing with this self-imposed obligation--with what seemed like little point--but I also couldn't just quit. Started with lofty goals and ended up just trying to get something on paper. So I squeezed the drawings in around a very busy life and made myself just a little more crazy. And now I am done. I will be doing some debriefing when I have a little more time but for now: Yahoo!
I have been madly trying to finish the project while trying to pack up to move. Today I am lucky to have gotten this last batch drawn and posted. Most of my art stuff is packed. My photo lights and tripod are packed so the the pictures for this week are a weird color and blurry--but done! One more to go...
I did finish "59" on my 60th birthday--just in time to start "60".
This has been a crazy year between retiring, turning 60 and moving out of the home I have lived in for 20 years--not to mention that the new house is three and a half hours away from my kids and grand kids and dearest friend. But it is such a beautiful and peaceful place. A new chapter for sure.
December! Just a few more weeks and I will actually complete this project. Should be easy to find things to draw as I pack to move. We have been up north the past five days roughing it without any internet--not to mention sleeping on an inflatable bed. The satellite guy showed up yesterday and got us hooked up with the caveat that service may be spotty out there in the boonies. Oh well...the price of privacy.
