I’ve been on a bit of a self-imposed exile lately. Part of it can be covered in my bitchy little rant in the previous post. Part of it can be explained by putting in almost 60-hour weeks at school. Another part lies in the drowning out of the gods subtle voices in the din of modern, lazy living.
Instead, my religion has become more of a production line. Paintings, statues, all that. I’ve become more and more invested in creating a material culture as opposed to an intellectual one; at least it’s a battle I feel I can win. So that’s what I’ve been doing. I have a nearly complete limestone bust of Ares. I have seven more tiles made, and the material to make about ten more. In January I’m investing in wax, plaster, and other casting supplies to start creating more statuary. I’ve also been painting. I’ve been decently productive.
Maybe eventually I’ll put more up. Maybe eventually I’ll post photos. Until then I’m just brainstorming, because I have nothign much to say.
