This is the first thing I made here, from paper I made in Mexico. I made it and then sent it to Jonah and his wife in Nebraska - he is the violist of the Chiara Quartet. I have been slowly acclimating. I started bleeding today so that is good b/c now I have a sense of when I can start my fast. And b/c I can now blame everything on either that or the elevation! Today, I blamed the elevation for making my lunch take forever to bake in the oven. I'll blame my period for the backaches.
I just accomplished the most important task of the day, that I haven't been able to swing since arrival: a nap! I passed out on the studio daybed listening to Feist. Now I'm ready for...not much. Just some tea, and writing a thank you email to the last resident: all of them from last month sent each of us postcards! Sweet. This is a piece I did today w/the paper I made yesterday.
