Spring took a long, long time to arrive this year. I didn't get enough done this winter, but I wrote a few songs, mapped out a new Field Mouse album with Andrew, and started using a real camera more often. 

It's weird to not be actively on tour or in a record cycle. When people ask me what I've been up to, lately I just say "working". Which is fine, but I'd like to get back to it. We have some really good songs already and I think we can make a really good album. It's been hard for me to balance work and creativity, as it tends to be for anyone who works full time and makes any kind of art. I don't know why it's so easy to start things and so outrageously difficult to finish them.
