Jumpstart

Well. I’ve been on a bit of a writing hiatus. Not for lack of words…I’ve actually started at least 2, maybe 3, blog posts over the past few months. 1 I just never finished and the other two got deleted before I had a chance to publish them and WordPress doesn’t have the best auto-save…

Unusual

It’s unusual that I don’t have words. That I’m having such a difficult time spewing out words in place of the confused, muddled thoughts that are in my head. That I can’t pretend I’m fine even if I’m not. I can’t even begin to express myself in any understandable fashion. That, too, is untrue I…

She used to be mine

Time continues to be nonsensical in my world. Words sometimes even more so. But here we are… I made my first sale at the Gallery. Barely enough for a candy bar, but I’m proud of it nonetheless. Also, towards the end of my last shift, PW and I were talking and he let me know…

Res…

Resolution…Resolve…Resign…Rescind. Knowing the beginning of a thing doesn’t guarantee that your prediction of the end is accurate. It’s been months since I’ve written. Not for lack of words or things to babble about, necessarily. Not that life has been super exciting, either, but there have certainly been events that I couldashoulda commented at length on,…

Retreatedly

Life has a certain way of sweeping the rug out from under your feet, even (or especially) when you weren’t aware you were even standing on a rug in the first place. You’re going along, minding your business, thinking that your feet are firmly on the floor and swoosh. When this happens, it’s often difficult…

Not Quite Later, Yet

So. Thus far, I’ve done a stellar job at keeping this blog pretty strictly art/creative endeavor related. And I briefly considered keeping it that way. I certainly have other outlets- online journals, paper journals, friends, therapy, pages dedicated to my poetry and the internal workings of my mind on this site, even. However, some things…

Some Updatage

Hello! I know it’s been a while. Life has been hectic in the best kind of way (for the most part!) In addition to starting a new job, I’ve been gathering tools and materials to progress in my artistic endeavors as well. So, to update about the things I was writing about last time… I…

Humble Beginnings

I am exhausted and broke. Translation: I AM AN ARTIST!!!  I’ve spent the last 2 days at the gallery, learning the procedures for opening, closing, and running the place for when I have to work my shifts there. I also took more old framed things and hung 14 of my photographs and got them and…

Acheivement Unlocked

PreApologies for spelling and punctuation errors, but 1. I’m SUPER excited and B, typing this on my phone (see point #1). It’s just that I have super awesome news that I can’t/don’t want to wait to share! I, like many people, tend to not answer my phone if I don’t recognize the number. These days…

Here I Am

So, I signed up for WordPress approximately 1 month prior to the writing of this entry. The learning curve was a relatively gentle slope, and I feel like I’ve made great progress over the last month. I was ok with most everything except for the actual front page…which was not ok, seeing as the front…
