Mining the clouds Monday…

Tonight I’m mining the clouds on two separate fronts. Tonight was the final class in this term of aerial silks and we had to show a routine that we were working on. To say I was under prepared was a complete understatement. I hadn’t actually run the routine through from start to finish at all, let alone to the music. I wasn’t feeling strong and I struggled to get through the routine and I’m certain it didn’t look pretty but the silver lining is now I know where I need to put something else in the routine to fill it and I know there is the bones of a good routine there, even if it was pretty shabby tonight.

The other situation that I’m mining clouds about is a photography one. A while back I did a shoot for the current tribal series that I’m working on and I was quite happy with the results. So was the model for the first few weeks. Then I got an email telling me that he had changed his mind and he wasn’t going to sign the release and I wasn’t allowed to use them. Each model has the right to do that so, even without any real explanation I agreed. Frustrating but what can I do? I can find an even more suitable model and do them again, better. So that’s what I’ll do. I have been trying to find a suitable model for the look I’m going for and I have decided to ask someone that I’ve shot before. I haven’t asked yet so I won’t say who just yet but I think he’ll look fantastic. Now I get the opportunity to work on the lighting and poses and make it all even better than last time.

    Good job! I need to be constantly reminded to mine the clouds.
    My mining today would be about an online Korean class I started taking tonight. I’m not a true beginner and the others really were, so It seemed a wasted of time actually. But I’m thankful to be a little ahead of the game. It gives me some confidence, which I can use. I don’t have a very competitive nature and tend to just give up if I feel stupid or like I’m at the bottom of the heap. So this is probably the right class for me to be in.
