I’m choosing a word to guide me for the beginning of this year—simple. Simplify; do less; choose carefully. I want this year to be about keeping things real; saying no more often than I say yes; and if I can't remember it without keeping detailed lists I'm probably doing too much. I want to observe and ask rather than making assumptions; and try drawing the simple conclusion rather the complicated one. It's touching on the personal, the family, and it's coming into the studio with me too as I find ways to practice my craft in small simple ways with minimal supplies. Simple.
