What is living on my night stand

July 23, 2011 § Leave a comment

So, I have been rather silent these past few weeks leading up to my departure for Iceland. I have been in multiple fittings mode, trying to get the costumes rendered to their final state, ready to walk the streets of Reykjavik. I have been training hard, and at night I collapse in bed and curl up with piles of books. I am a nibbler of information, so I am in the mist of consuming multiple books. Here is what I have been sticking my nose at the moment.
