Having submitted my thesis proposal to my examination committee on Monday morning (eep!) and the book chapter I’ve been working on Monday evening (aak!), I decided that some battery recharging was in order yesterday. I took my poor, bored, bored dogs for a nice long walk in the very wet and muddy woods, and breathed fresh air and oggled at all the lush greenery and stroked dew-covered moss and sniffed the pungent fragrence of stink bugs and listened to the birdsong (I learned that rose-breasted grosbeaks sound remarkably like robins and wondered how many I’ve neglected to notice). There is truly nothing better for reinvigorating a tired brain and stimulating desk-dulled senses. Ahhhhh, much better.
After that lovely jaunt, I was inspired to get off my butt and get working on my submission for the BugShot workshop taking place this September; I’m applying for a student waiver. I’ve put together a “short” (heh) list of 32 possible entries in a Flickr set, which I have numbered for your convenience. Yep, I’m recruiting all you lovely buggy and nature-ey and photography-ey people: I’d love to hear your thoughts on which ones you like best, to help narrow down the list to a top 10. (Click on any of the images up there to go to the flickr set, it’s easier to scroll through them quickly there).
All right, procrastination over…T-minus 12 days to comps!!!
