Oh February... why are you always so difficult? The holiday work madness subsides, the parties and festivities end, the weather gets progressively shitty and then it's February - nothing but a whole lot of cold and dark and quiet.
Sure.. I have a crazy long list of things to do and resolutions for the New Year, but let's get real - I suck at winter.
Get me out of here.
It's around this time last year that I did a residency at the Sou'wester Lodge at the coast in Seaview, Washington to work on some new designs. I called them up to see if they had any spots open in the next month or two... They happened to have an opening the following week so I jumped on it. Time to do some self reflecting, work out some new ideas, decompress, make a plan, not freak out.
I managed to finish several patterns and prototypes in between beach walks, hikes and lodge hangs with the other residency fellows who were working on their respective films that same week. A major snow storm in Portland kept me there for an extra 3 days - a fortuitous extension... I didn't really want to leave anyway. Thank you Sou'wester!
