Or maybe what I needed was just to make things.

Last week I was winging about how I didn't feel 100 percent. You know, I was taking, like, three weeks to recover my equilibrium from my time away, and I kind of felt bad about that. But then, I came across this quote:

I think of writing simply in terms of pleasure. It’s the most important thing in my life, making things. Much as I love my husband and my children, I love them only because I am the person who makes these things...I, who I am, is the person that has the project of making a thing. Well, that’s putting it pompously - but constructing. I do see it in sort of three-dimensional structures. And because that person does that all the time, that person is able to love all these people.
— A.S. Byatt

And I think my problem was, well partly my problem was, that I wasn't working on anything. It had been weeks since I did a shoot, I wrapped everything up before I left. And then I abandoned this poor blog, and I wasn't releasing any creative energy. And without that act of making, creating, I couldn't feel good in myself. Anyway, I wrote a bit more about that here

Anyway, so I'm back to working. I've picked up a few new gigs, and hoping to pick up a few more before we're well and truly dug into the Christmas season. So, yeah, if you're thinking about doing some photos, send me a message. Because I would love to. I need. Oh, and I'll also give you some free prints. ericaknecht@gmail.com.
