Tonight I worked in my studio until 9pm, after teaching most of the day. Here's where I got with this piece:
The magnolias are starting to become a kind of pink frenzy, which is just what I was hoping for. But while I will allow my magnolias go berzerk, I staunchly refuse to enter into a pre-show frenzy myself. I am breathing deeply, I am calm, and I am at one with the fact that I cannot clone myself. So I am sanely, steadily, serenely going to buckle down and get this bad boy finished by Thursday night!
