The Little Lakes project is too dear to me to not finish. I think some projects just take longer than others to figure out. I started it in 2013, swimming all 20 lakes over the summer. I gathered a lot of data, and experimented with finding a form for it while at graduate school at MIT. There may have been too much pressure on me during school to really know what the best form was for this project, however.
It's been five years, but this project hasn't left my thoughts. Last night something clicked in me that inspired me to return to the material. I begin writing again, recalling my memories from visiting and swimming each lake. And I had some clarity of how to pull together all of this data and personal notes.
Space and mental breathing room does wonders for my process.
I am really excited to get back into this work.
