First day in a while without a job (a paying one, anyway), no movie, no project, and no idea when or if I’ll be doing another VFX gig. I’ve been here before, but never with such a clear sense of purpose, and a burning need to start a new adventure in a direction long wished for but never seriously pursued.
The day started well, a ride through a misty Richmond Park, the deer emerging from the trees, stags with antlers high like a moving forest. Then it’s a rapid crash to earth, the home chores, the internet that’s not working, the stacked up to-do list, the broken washing machine so a trip to the local laundromat.
holy shit! Have you seen the prices at the laundromat? £4.00 for a small washer, £4.80 for a large, and 20p for about 3 minutes of drying time! That’s just fucking crazy. Maybe it’s Surrey… jeez.
