This one’s simple: Right now I need to focus on the transition to new studio space and growing the business. At the same time, I need to be sure I’m managing my physical and mental health. During times of stress I tend to not eat or sleep well. My cognitive issues get worse, which quickly turns into a downward spiral as that only increases my stress. So I’m taking a hiatus from blogging, social media, and public-facing personal projects in order to concentrate on the things that are my highest priority right now.
Get rid of what you don’t need, to make more space for the things you do.
There’s one last HUBRIS post coming tomorrow, because it’s already written. There’s one more podcast episode coming next Thursday, because it’s already in the can. After that, silence for a couple of months.
See You in July
Assuming things go according to plan — which includes a wide margin of error for things not going according to plan — things here on this site will resume on 1 July. At the very least, I will touch base and give you an update. I have some tentative plans, but I’m only going to be working on them in the margins, i.e. when I have some genuine free time between other projects, and using that time for more projects won’t be detrimental to my health.
I want to do an actual newsletter-slash-zine. Like, a weekly MailChimp blast with a monthly print zine as a companion piece. I envision these as being of a piece with the weekly podcast, which means all of this will likely be managed via Patreon. The timeline, of course, depends on how quickly we get settled into the new studio space, and how long it takes me to recover from said settling in.
