I hope you had a great holiday and new year. I welcomed 2015 in Seattle. It has been definitely a time of hibernation with haze, rain and all the elements one imagines when thinking of Seattle. There is a reason winter exists, I remind myself. To gather strength and ideas. I thoroughly love a time when I feel no obligations or the urge to fill my time with doing. We are such a society of busy-ness, always the need to prove our worth through how busy we are – me included. Winters here are about gathering quietly and embracing the darkness in a strange way.
Having said this, there are many things I would like to get accomplished this year.
Finally renovating the studio kitchen,
beginning to photograph a cookbook this winter (more on that soon),
there will be more workshops in the studio some taught by me, some by other photographers I admire,
will return to the Basque Country for several weeks this summer
and I hope to go back to Scandinavia.
Japan is also on my list to visit this year. A must.
My obsession with scarves continues.
Going to take this camera everywhere.
I hope these spoons return.
For soft hands in the winter. I swear by it.
And finally, some more citrus recipes for these dark days.
