A New Beginning

This morning I woke up to the gentle pitter-patter of rain outside my window and for a moment I thought, I'm late! But then I remembered: today is the day, the day I've been anxiously awaiting for weeks and weeks. Today I'm a free woman. Starting today I am working and writing and shooting and cooking and doing all the things I love from home.

So here are the rules for my new beginning:
{adapted from Henry Miller's "Work Schedule, 1932-1933"}

1.  Work on one thing at a time until finished.
2. Don't be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly, on whatever is in hand.
3. Work according to schedule and not according to mood.
4. When you can't create, you can do dishes.
5. Stay social. See people, go places. Drink if you feel like it.
6. Don't be a drone bee. Work with pleasure only.
7. Review your work from the previous day and take note of what you did well and what you might improve. 
8. Forget about the projects you want to do. Think only of the one you are doing.
9. Write first and always.
10. Do the next right thing. (That one is what my Mom always tells me.)

Now off to edit photos from this happy occasion:
