I'm not sure I am ready to write anything about today other than it was hard.
The combined heat, sleep deprivation /irregularity and general sense of isolation got the better of me and I was overcome with sadness.
I know this is part of the process and the only way to deal with it is to move through it.
So while teary eyed I sanded back twenty wooden rulers – erasing the marks of measure and standard to leave behind barely a memory of its former self. I had been waiting to do this for quite some time (the first of these I made way back in 2013) so on what has been a rather ordinary day it is somewhat satisfying to see the first twenty hanging together. Not sure how many I am going end up with in total... (but another eighty are already on their way... )
