The Lay of the Land
I hope this finds you well and I hope you can forgive my lack of updates.
It's been a grinding few months.
40+ hours of night shifts a week at the pointy end of adult social care, 4 sons to wrangle, the weirdness to navigate...
The plans I had for the making of Field Notes fell apart as soon as the lockdown began - bloodied at the first ditch, tangled in wire and murk - the energy that remained had to be focused elsewhere - everything was either nocturnal or bunker - so it goes.
Time to work the book has been hard to grasp - remains so - the odd day here or there - but those days do add up.
I reckon Field Notes is half way there now - the drawings I have mustered ( 695 ) are the best I can commit - the text is in progress - the beast is lean and the beast is hungry - I think it might be good.
Thank you all for the patience and support
All gates open now
