Currently, I’m in post thesis mode.  I’ve floundered a bit paralytically thinking: What’s the ‘right’ thing for me to make now?
In order to ease this tension, I’ve given myself permission to make things that I simply want to make without any inherent deeper level of meaning.  I’m making to ensure that I continue to make.
