Month 4, Day 1
I read somewhere that how you spend your down time is as important as how you spend your up time. With that in mind and with 3 months of daily work behind me I'm realizing the importance of down time and that down time is an essential part of up time. The last few weeks I have been trying to read this book on Peter Blume an artist who's work I have admired for some time but new little about. This painting in particular has meant a lot to me over the years. It's hangs at the Art Institute here in Chicago which is we're I first saw it, or rather first saw the postcard reproduction they sold in the gift shop which I purchased as a kid for $1.50and had taped to my wall for many years. Oddly enough today is also the day that I finished my paper work to become official faculty for the School of the Art Institute, at least for the summer. Never the less l am I'm feeling the full circleness of things in particular today.
