Pump up the needle…

We are entering the dead time – deep winter – a time when really nothing seems to happen but in fact is some of the most productive of the whole year as few people want to take time off at now.  The Romans didn’t even bother to allocate months to this time of year but rather leaving it as just Winter.   Nowadays we have the modern edition of the days between Christmas and New Year’s day where it has become customary for many companies to grant these as concessionary day.  I’m too old to see the point of this but then again I worked 24/7 365 days a year so Christmas was just another day – that is apart from the double time or extra day off in lieu.   That was then…this is now.

Now I spend much of the Christmas week catching up on this or that.  Today it was working up a couple of images from before Christmas and doing a bit of drawing/sketching.   Not too much of a grind.
