04/22/2007: "Drippity Do Dah!"
This weekend I ordered all of the materials I'll need for the show in September and I feel very excited for them to arrive. I've been doing lots of mental sketches of how I'd like this new show to look, the works will be smaller for one thing...due in part to the space I'll be alloted.
I'm planning to do around 15 sized 9"x12", 12"x12", 11"x14", and 12"x16".
The weather has been awe inspiring lately, despite the fact that I came down with the 10-day crud again (the stuff that ruined my Spring Break)...the sun feels great on my runny nose!
I took a walk down to my boat this afternoon to get out of the house for awhile and walking down the ramp I got a whiff of salt water and boat fumes combined with sea weed and wood smoke from a beach bonfire. It was so overwhelming (in a good way).
The sun was shining on the snow covered mountains, several ravens were chasing an eagle around and a golden retriever trotted past me and I swear he gave me a smile. Anyway, I just had this moment of complete joy. I felt it in every fiber of my being. It was the absolute certainty of knowing I was exactly where I wanted to be in life.
I took a nice sunny nap in the cabin of my sailboat while Aaron worked on our outboards. Have I mentioned lately what a great guy he is?
Now I'm home coughing up a storm and dripping all over everything. This crud is the worst ever...you know how it feels when your eyes get so watery you can't read and you can't even watch TV? That's how I feel. But at least it's sunny, and I'm in Alaska which is the only place I want to be...drips and all.
