I’ve been waiting for so long for play time.
Play time! I love a summer project and this year’s came to me as I kept noticing random numbers that had some sort of coincidence attached to them. Such as finding an old photo on 29 December that was taken on 29 December 7 years ago – spooky!
And this project combines my love of noticing the small things and my obsession with Instagram. I present The Date. A collection of numbers found in my surroundings that represent the date. High brow stuff, eh! Post-modernism, anyone?
Meet the first of January.
Not only play time but time to get stuff done that dropped off the priority list as the end of year got a bit out of control. Now’s my chance to catch up with things like clean the studio, chuck out stuff, do my tax, sort through photos, clean out cupboards, figure out what that box of papers are under the bed, invent a way to hang my necklaces inside the wardrobe door – you know, all the important stuff.
And what have I done so far – hardly any of it! I’ve been in a weird Dr Who time-free zone this week where I’ve barely been aware what day it is. I’ve travelled interstate for Christmas and back again, I’ve sat around, I’ve painted my nails and I’ve done nothing else. Where did the week go? I haven’t cooked, I haven’t sorted, I haven’t read a single magazine yet, let alone any of my new novels. All the plans I had for my week off are left unchecked. Oh, I did get my eyes tested – hoorah! I’ve only been meaning to do that since I got my first reminder notice in March 2011.
If anyone knows where 2011 went please give me a call!
