Last night I dreamed I was trying to get to the Indian Health Service Hospital to see "The Dr." while I was writing the last episode of Dr. Who, ever. At one point I hitched a ride to what I thought was IHS but turned out only to be a 1/12 scale model built by two guys in the mountains. When I finally did get to IHS (built terrifyingly into the side of a cliff over a rushing river) I discovered that my former online friend turned meatlife friend and neighbor grinnifer/fukingprole/typodmary was a doctor there (which was extra frustrating since I started the adventure at her house- if I'd only told her where I was going I could have hitched a ride with her). Also the final doctor in the Dr. Who series was played by a remarkably well preserved Tom Baker.

Oh my brain is weird.

The external drive that has all my photography on it has gone walkabout, and the cloud backup expires after a month, so I have been downloading the entire drive from backblaze to a new one.  In the process of checking file integrity, it has become obvious that I have massive quantities of reasonably salable photography I've never properly processed and sent up to the stock agency -- particularly from every trip I've taken since, um, 2010? Possibly earlier, 2007-2009 are still downloading, and I do know that the 2006 had a lot of stuff that went up. This is linked to the not getting a payment of any size from my agency for a couple years.  The glorious thing about stock, though, is the "set it and forget it". Once it's up there, I don't have to do any promotion or printing or anything and then sometimes checks float in.  (My favorite, though not particularly lucrative, sale was at some point a British newspaper used a small pic of Olivia in her stroller at the SPAM Museum.)

And while I do not consider landscape photography to be a strength, I clearly can make salable images, possibly because I was mostly shooting with an eye to using things in my own composites so maybe they are adaptable to graphic designers uses better than the spectacular "frame and put on your wall" landscape photography I only rarely achieve.

I have three rush and two normal album clients right now (!) after having almost none for months which is both nice and really ill-timed.  At least I'm done with big shows for a couple of months, because one of the rush jobs is only in rush now because I didn't have enough brain while in 5 shows in 6 weeks mode and messed a bunch of stuff up. (Okay, technically Confluence is next weekend, but I had to mail it out over a week ago, so it counts as "done" from my perspective.)

Of course, finding time to actually process is not easy, but during the times where I start having a panic attack in front the computer and get trapped in obsessively refreshing twitter and LJ, if I can make myself do that instead it would be an improvement.

I won the academic anxiety dream discussion in the car.
I had no idea.
Apparently it's not too common to dream of getting a test with questions like.
When are you going to give up?
How long have you known you're a failure?
Who exactly do you think you're fooling?
etc etc etc

I have some weird things I do. Or imagine. You see I dislike death...a lot. I'm not afraid of it. I've seen it. I've even dressed deceased loved ones for their burial. But I am filled with bitterness and sorrow for slow sad death by disease in particular- So when celebrities I like die of some sad painful drawn out illness I imagine that instead they died in a big heroic duel to the death with another celebrity who died around the same time. For instance Alan Rickman and David Bowie went out like crazy sexy pirates with swords. Now George Romero and Martin Landau had their blaze of glory, but I think they used axes.
