Day 9. Routine routine. Tape and cardboard. Making a shape. Things go slow. Remembering how to use plaster. Getting the ratio wrong. Piling on the layers. Trying to get it to dry. Putting it by the dock. Photo-editing the past few days. Reading by the lake. Slight naps in between. Mid-afternoon shower. The kitchen smells good. Mulligatawny Soup. Different kinds of rice. A talk glass of whiskey. Taking a few pictures by the canoe house. Mosquitoes everywhere.
