Carry on my Wayward Son….

Like wounded soldiers fighting for the greater good, we trudge on, on to greatness

Though the road is thick with strife, we embrace life and all the dinner choices that have been suspicious

We follow our Captains into battle each day, sometimes wishing they could just give us break

However, WAR IS HELL,

and what is design school if not long battles ending in excessive bombshells

So Carry on my wayward son, there will be peace when you are done

Lay your wary head to rest, don’t you cry no more…..

 

I take a minute to pause, “Its been a good run” I say realizing how close we are to the end. Moments of strife, bliss and solidarity cross my mind in the form of vivid memories shared with these beautiful people. There is still much work to be done in the weeks to come, however we stand firm, ready to face the ever changing tide that is our studio project. ¬†Hindered by being able to do anything, we allowed our minds to wonder and freely express in order to narrow down what was possible and what is merely fantastical.

Genius strikes, our concepts solidify and forms begin to emerge, though still a little rough, I feel great promise moving forward. Today we head to Cordoba and then on to Granada and the Alhambra. The days away from studio will allow for a well deserved recharge as the lights of enthusiasm were beginning to dim. Well played my Captains, well played. Understanding your soldiers is key to winning the war of design. Knowing when to push and when to fall back has served us well during this abroad trip and our studio projects.

 

taking time to enjoy the city has allowed us to make countless friends at MasterHomes. Many of the other foreign and local students have taken us in and embraced our sometimes eccentric behaviors.

Yes, the war is all but won, the end approaches and we charge into each day, sketch books out and “Saloojee Pens” aplenty.

Though we are worn, it shows we are battle tested and ready to face whatever lies ahead

We carry on…..we carry on
