Living in the moment in the field

It happens every year. I spend weeks or months planning and looking forward to my fieldwork, and then as soon as I get there I start counting the days until I go home. I’m like that with just about everything, I think – I make all these big plans and then I can’t wait until it’s all over. It is ridiculous.

I am trying not to do that this year. I am in the most beautiful place in the country, with a good crew, and the work is going reasonably well. I am trying to enjoy this now, and not just later when it is a fond memory.
