I’m easily distracted by new ideas and the desire to make something new. But I spread myself too much like butter on hot bread…I’m everywhere but without structure.
So this year’s resolution, like last year’s, is to declutter my list of Things I Want To Do and focus on just two main projects.
With the above, I just wanted to bookmark an idea without elaboration. But sometimes articulating ideas on paper helps to keep one focused. My two main projects for 2019:
- Muy Marcottage. When I started this blog more than 15 tears ago, the focus was on the environment and the motto was Make Art, Not Trash. These years of bricolage led to making new clothes with the clothes I had already. My version of sustainable fashion is called Muy Marcottage and documented HERE.
- The Age of Reconfiguration. This year I turned 65 and entered The Last Chance Years. That huge ocean of time that stood in front of me years ago has gradually evaporated. Time for procrastination has finished but with the realization that the me of today is not that of 20 or even 10 years ago. For example, once I was able to do five things in one day whereas now I often need five days to do one thing. To affront this new reality, I’ve started a DIY Reconfiguration Manuel with text and drawings.
