Scaling back your art practice for long term travel – the early days

I'm still in the early days of this, but I had to do some serious thinking about what materials to bring with me to Canada.

So today started stressfully, although I decided to poeticise my commute to try and make at least that part of it less frustrating: I missed my bus by the turn of a corner, and my train by a flight of stairs.
