I’m realizing that I care far more about craft than I ever realized I did. This is a good thing. A lot is coming into focus.

March is on the horizon; things have not settled down. But it’s good to have things to do.

Sunday, 14 January 2024
The first six weeks of the year have been intensely busy. Looking back over my notes, I’m realizing that this might be an emerging trend; the last four years have all had similar first quarters at work: massive change, incredible team-wide effort to meet new needs, long hours. If the trend holds, things will have settled down by March.
