How does everyone manage their time when there is so much to do...I have downloaded my first app called Wunderlist in the vein hope it'll manage 'me' a little better than I would myself.
less usefully, I've been
- taking no photos!
- panicking that winter will skip by before I know what I'm doing, probably unduly as clearly most Lakeland winters (and indeed summers) are wet anyway!
- unnecessarily organising when to do what
- thinking I should know more on the gender issues and conceptualism in landscape and also Wells' three interpretations of the landscape (geographic, biographic and metaphoric)
- dusting down the covers of a book on post modernism and another on critical theory that I dip in and quickly out of
- wondering if I've got my skype settings wrong
- musing over why the course is so season-centric
- chastising myself for setting a completion date of a year...a bit rash!!!
more usefully, I've been
- printing off reams of 'google search' image thumbnails of various photographers including Mitch Epstein, Stephen Shore, Thomas Struth and William Eggleston. And then scribbling all over them. I'm adopting the role of detective and looking for clues.
- reading and rereading Liz Wells' Land Matters and 'Work' by Mitch Epstein
- checking back on Liz Wells' The Photography Reader
- reading Peter Walker's Folk Stories from the Lake District and The folklore of the Lake District by Marjorie Rowling
- hesitating on what approach to take, on all fronts
Yes, flibbertigibbet sums it, or me, up...
