The purpose of this blog is to chart and give form to the year after my Papertrails project. Last year was so full, so prescribed and so organised that I often wished for a less regimented schedule. This year I deliberately opted for what I thought of as a breather; a calm period to assess and evaluate and build on the work of the project. This year is actually being far from any of those things. At the moment it feels utterly full of competing things with no time to weigh anything up. Welcome back to the real world!
