I haven't slept in a very long time. I stayed up all night making things-- glass on the torch, metal work, sewing; I even pulled out the drill press to drill holes in shells for the necklace this doll head will be suspended from.
In my morning delirium I forgot to pack the shell necklace, though it's amazing that I didn't forget more considering how absent I was, like somnambulating.
I'm going to try to get it shipped to me.
I took two buses, two trains, and a plane to get here. It's wonderful to be with my maternal family again and have Filipino food for dinner!
