Things are improving in the Fishbowl. A little yellow flower, a pretty postcard and me back into my working boots; for the first time in a week I have been outside. Catching some of that incredible air and inhaling the light. Being sick was a good break at the beginning, slowly it was starting to bore me though. Too many movies and countless hours of sleep, come with even more thinking. Being some kind pondering girl already, too much of that stuff is definitely nothing to cure me eventually. So, enough of that resting. I am glad to be back at the studio, looking much forward to a productive week. To some more great September days.

"You can put a picture aside and say you won't touch it again, but you can never write THE END. " (Pablo Picasso)
Maybe one of the most frightening quotes, I have ever read from a painter. Thinking about it, this would mean we can always come back. Different to life, over and over again, be it good or bad. Is it really true, that one more coat of paint is always possible? I am not so sure and actually, I am more about hoping the opposite. That working on a piece will lead me to an end or some kind of closure. The option of endless choices and never ending chances, rather gives me a feeling of unease. I kind of like changes and going back all over again, makes them look hard to achieve. Obviously I have been resting too much lately.

P.S. I am about to have a big bowl of rice pudding with cinnamon and apple sauce. Inner voices, you know.

Only days after making a photo, I am sometimes completely lost for its reasons. On other occasions, tiniest moods and emotions stay close by my side, strongly attached to what the image shows. These days it seems, the camera catches what is missing on the outside. Time is a luxury in the Fishbowl right now, moments of silence rather unusual. I find myself constantly wanting to catch some breath or to hold on for a minute, a second maybe. The things going on are quite good, some even have already been brought to a bright finish, and while the season is clearly changing around here, there is simply not an awful lot to say. Thus I will keep quiet, go on working on the happiness side, and wish everybody a wonderful weekend. More next week.
