AUTHOR: Alisha TITLE: Liking It DATE: 1/18/2006 02:23:00 PM ----- BODY:
I actually made something I like today! I can hardly believe it. After weeks and months of stumbling and hemming and hawing... I leveled the last framed piece on the wall, stepped back with level in hand, and SMILED. I liked it. Now, of course the question is where other people will like it. But that is beyond the point right now. That's tomorrow's question, perhaps. Today, I really just want to keep this feeling... being caught up in the moment of enjoying what I've accomplished. It's my accomplishment. And, it's a big one. Liking what I've made makes me wonder why it's been so long since I had that feeling. Was I not putting the work in? Have I lowered my expectations? Am I actually making better work now? Perhaps tomorrow I'll feel like a one-hit-wonder working on cutting my second album. But while the feeling lasts... for tonight... I am a hit. Even if simply in my own mind.
