Today was the halfway point of the process. Rachel and I looked over everything that had been created. Tiny vignettes assembled themselves on a page.

We talked a lot about honesty. It has become clear that the piece isn’t about turning thirty, that’s just when it’s happening. It is about our tiny flicker of time of existence in the big infinite universe.

I had to leave the studio today, so I took things down and sorted them out. I put posters up to invite the students I’ve been getting to know along to my sharing, and washed up my ‘Best 21 Year Old’ mug and left it to dry.

Next week: The Lowry. It has been really liberating being in an art school to make a performance. I think it has both freed me up and kept my feet on the ground.
