the dichotomy of beginnings
I have a love/hate relationship with the starts of projects.
On the one hand, they hold every possibility in the world. Its new and exciting and perfect. There's almost a sense of euphoria.
But the other side of it feels like a colossal undertaking. In a good way, but still. The ironic part is that it usually isn't. Once things get rolling, things are cake.
The project up above didn't go the way I wanted. I'll be pulling it apart this weekend and starting over. There was a time when I'd get frustrated with it and move on to a friendlier project (aka, one that is turning out the way I want) but these days I've got a much more zen reaction to it. Its just another chance to add more design to it - another chance to begin. :)
