The ceiling and walls are newly painted. The floor is scrubbed and waxed. The windows are clean inside and out. My plants have moved back under the windows, and the new honeycomb shades are installed. And, most important, the printer is back in its spot and recalibrated. I am officially back in my studio after the ceiling repair, and it feels like an entirely new space. Nothing on the walls yet, but for now I’m sitting at the table in the morning enjoying the glow of warm sunlight through the shades, sipping hot green tea, and relishing the sense of possibility. I’ll be back to work soon.
