The festival is finally over, and Hay-on-Wye has once again returned to being a sequestered little hamlet in Wales. I have to say over the past ten days there have been both great moments and rubbish moments, some of which I have shared with you via video or blog post. This however, is largely finished, and I must look for new things to occupy my days off.
I have a vague idea that seems to boil away within my head, perhaps it will see some clarity in time. Until it does I will focus on expanding the ‘wunderkammer’ and developing this muddle of a digital space; a spring clean may not be in order, but a fairly thorough ‘going over’ would do some good.
Preoccupation is a strange creature: It will hound you with persistent fervour during times of inconvenience, yet it is nowhere to be found when you are alone and without direction.
I suppose when this happens you have a number of options; you can leave the creature to its own devices and stagnate in the process, or you can chase it down. The latter may require some bait however – a hearty dish of motivation, sprinkled with hints of inspiration. But a word of warning: Too much seasoning will make any meal overzealous, and hard to swallow.
Wow, in retrospect I ought to lay off the metaphors… Or sleep more.
Here’s the final ‘daily Hay’ video, if you’re still reading. It’s a bit wacky though…
