I’ve been to my school workload limit and school physical limit before and i think i’m coming very close to them once again. Too many things, too little time, too little rest, too difficult… the problem is i don’t wish to give up and believe i can push on… at least until my body gives physically… then again that might not be so wise.
I’m already saying no to projects coming my way (unless its really very good paying i might still have a look at it hee…). I’m really loosing out time with my little family… Cli� has started walking now and i so wish to see more of that… I spent a good 20mins just talking to my wife, i thought nothing of it till she told me late at night that she really enjoyed talking to me… talking to a friend… darn! i know my priorities, but sometimes its so difficult to keep to them…
There are so many interesting projects in my vicinity… a friend that wants to do this, an idea i want to do there, a concept that needs developing, a design competition that i really want to join… a portal i wanna build… darn… i need a long holiday, a very long holiday to do all the projects i wanna do… I’ll stop bitching here now.

You need to get away with Pearl. Recharging is ESSENTIAL, otherwise you jus go bonkas!!!
with that amount of passion you need to jump in the river and swim instead of wading by the shore. Then again it’s about balance,
here’s a story about an architect’s passion gone astray..
When long-estranged father, dreamer and visionary architect, Glen Small bequeaths his daughter the task of writing his biography, she answers instead with an irreverent film about his unstable career and rocky private life – while he is still alive.
Her father has always called himself a genius; Lucia Small wonders if he isn’t just suffering from an overblown ego. My Father, The Genius explores the precarious framework on which a career and family are built. How does a man dedicate his entire life to “saving the world through architecture,” yet cause so much damage at home?
Interviews with the brash, outrageous, Glen Howard Small are juxtaposed with comments from his peers and former students, his clients, daughters, ex-wives and girlfriends. Framed by startling models of his work, the film provides an insight into the largely abandoned ideals of the 70’s, the birthplace of the gender wars, and the generation that emerged.
At 31, Glen Small was a rising star. At 61, he barely escapes financial ruin. The current drama is revealed: what happens toward the end of a dreamer’s life when his dreams are still unfulfilled? Where and when will his statement of architectural genius finally be made – now or never?
