It's been rainy and gray all day—a perfect day to stay in and contemplate the next project.
Actually, I should have been working on a product-development presentation, but was sidelined by a migraine. Yuk!
A fire in the fireplace and a blanket with my puppy Elsie snuggled under it with me is the perfect setting for a comfort day.
I finished two projects this morning and shipped them to the magazine. After 20 years of designing for magazines and books, it feels odd to start all over again, submitting designs to editors with whom I don't yet have relationships. The joy lies in the design and execution for me, so it isn't a chore, but it does feel odd. Like a comfy shirt that suddenly doesn't fit right.
All will be well.
