Hibernating Until the Recession Is Over
It’s been awhile since I wrote here, in any meaningful way about my work in perfume and incense, and I’m beginning to wonder if this blog has served the professional purpose. I think it has and I will leave it up, but I unless there is something pressing to say about BPI or incense in general, I’ll probably be over at my personal blog (http://makinsense.wordpress.com). This isn’t “goodbye” or anything desperate, annoying and self-pitying or anything like that.
I am just winding down in this area of my work. The economy has forced serious cutbacks in experiments, and testing, so until it improves, I can’t really do much innovative stuff. I’m just a single artisan after all, not a full blown factory. So while the reecession plods on, (I don’t believe a word of what Wall Street says — maybe those fat cats are living it up, but down here, on the River, where I live with my low income tenants, thinigs are ever the same!) I have gone back to other mediums, namely painting and I’m enjoying the break it is giving me. People really have no idea how physically demanding incense making is. At least, not until I actually recruit them to help me in the workshop. 😉
As always, I welcome true friendship with no agenda — I have none, and expect none.
God bless you!
