clearing space to think

organization

yes, i am an organization freak.

it’s in my blood. i can’t help it. it runs on my father’s side and is hereditary, i swear. my father has always kept everything from the bills to nails to electrical tools in perfect order. my grandmother keeps fabric remnants in order. my uncle keeps his tack and tools in perfect order. again, it’s got to be in my blood.

i now have the nickname of ‘COO’ - chief organizing officer. it’s like a puzzle that needs to be solved. it’s absolutely one of my favorite aspects of our work. i even equate it in level of satisfaction to the engineering that goes into these projects. i know i am not in company on this one. surely my other half would rather be engineering. are they that far apart? i don’t think so.
i probably should have worked for some kind of closet company or have been a librarian. who knows.

i also have a thing about limericks.

too many pies

sometimes it feels really good to have our fingers in every pie.

it’s very satisfying, when people ask about what we are working on, to take a moment to mentally survey and realize that we are in the midst of some great projects of various scope. it’s also quite a comforting feeling to know that the machine is humming and things are going on for the next few months to a year. ah, to embark on something new - the introspection, bouncing concepts off one another and the creative momentum it generates. a great feeling indeed.

but then it is all in motion and the demand on both brain power and creative energy is at it’s maximum and you realize . .

too many pies.

new link, new look

so as you have gathered, i did a little reorganization of the server and updated the blog with a new look.

it’s good to be able to have a bit more control over the blog.  it may also be a form of procrastination.  i was really supposed to be working on something else.  but it only took a day or so and best of all  . . .it was fun.

glad that you made it over, or if it’s your first time, made it here.

cleaning up

so what is with cleaning up the studio before starting a new project?

we always clean up the studio between projects. not that we don’t sweep up or clean up a bit at the end of the day, but the start of a new piece or project brings about a full on, extensive clean up. this is true even when we are slammed and back to back on deadlines. it’s one of our many rituals.

is it a form of procrastination? a way to get our thoughts organized and gear up? does it make the work any better? somehow set the mood?

who knows. maybe it is all of the above. somehow it works and makes us feel good about it and makes the studio a nice place to be.
