I have to do some more unpacking today. If I don't keep going in a determined way, I can imagine myself still surrounded by boxes in a couple of months time. I don't want that. But I'm going to have to break it up with some creative work, or I won't make it. So, I'll tantalise myself with the prospect of reproducing something like the colour of this rose today.
