current: i need to make something

Lately, I've been having the urge to create. Anything. I need to work with my hands. Feel something tactile. I enjoy my job, but I need to get away from the computer. I was going through a pile of books on one my coworker's desk and randomly picked up, Push Print: 30+ Artists Explore the Boundaries of Printmaking and I found Tom Huck, a professor whose print class I took at Washington University. His prints are large, extremely detailed, and dark. Seeing his work motivated me to put my words into action. I just ordered some paper and bookbinding materials, so I guess I'm going make a few (simple) books. After that, who knows... I think half the battle is starting.
