While I was away

It's good to be home after a week away - an intense and exhausting week. I met a lot of great people at my first MFA residency and I'm feeling good about my decision to do this, but I'm still processing all the input, readjusting to my "normal" life, and catching up with the world.

All last week I didn't once watch TV, listen to the radio, read a newspaper, or glance at a magazine. I didn't check Facebook, fool around on Flickr, read blogs, or play spider solitaire. And I didn't miss much - if anything. This makes me sorry to think of how much time I actually spend on these activities during a normal week. I swear I'm going to be more mindful of how I use my time from now on, but we'll see...

I did get a chance to take some photos during my busy, busy week, so that was fun. Here's one I shot at night, with only the available light in the parking lot outside my dorm. (yes, dorm.) Although it was night, the parking lot was well lit & I like the tone that resulted - makes me want to shoot at night more often. Doesn't this sewer cover look like the happiest guy you've ever known?
