At The Studio


A week ago I had a virtual coffee with business coach, Tara Lutman Agacayak.

When I started the call I was wavering and tentative, as I always seem to be when I discuss my work and my business.

By the end of the call I had a list of goals written down and a timeline for achieving them.  I had a plan of action and a commitment to sit at the bench and work.


The next morning I drove to the studio and I turned on all the lights and the equipment.  I lined up some of the chemicals that I needed and got out my metal, saws, and hammers.  Then I looked out of the window and saw brilliant sunshine and I heard the seagulls calling.  I switched off the lights and equipment and as if there was a tractor beam pulling me out the door because I just headed straight for the seaside and had a long stroll along the water.  Then I stopped at my favourite cafe for tea and schmoozed with the owners for a while.  Then visited a pair of black sandals at Clarks Shoes.  Then I went home and ate dinner with my family.


That was day one of the new me.

On day two of  the new me, my iron willed self-discipline really kicked in and  I worked at the bench the entire day, I’m happy to report.

I also must report that the weather has been cold and rainy ever since day one.

  1. See how smart you were to do that walk on the first day! I, myself, am committing to a walk with Peanut today. It will likely be a short one, but the sun is out, a little breeze is available, and I need to strengthen what feels like sea legs after a weird winter. You have inspired me, once again!
