i carved out a chunk of time yesterday to have some long overdue creative time. between work being crazy, and taking care of a new pup, and balancing the cacophony of life, the discipline and art of taking time to breathe creatively had taken a back seat, and then it had no seat at all. so i sat down with my sketchbook and put on a good album and— it was terrible. i’m out of shape. i struggled through an hour of doodling and erasing and doodling less and erasing more. i think creativity is a muscle. you have to be disciplined in keeping it sharp and toned. it might always exist, and can be forced to flex, but the healthiest creatives work on their craft with a certain dedication. and i had let my creative muscle atrophy. i’m frustrated and disappointed in myself, but also trying to show myself grace. how could i try to squeeze in some time to write, draw, take photos, or sculpt? not when i had six minutes to myself every day, and i choose to use all six to take a shower. but the good news is the wake up call that happened: i need to refine my free time. less social media. less amazon shopping for dog toys. less looking for new sofas. more reading, more studying, more time to let my artistic lungs breathe. so, here’s to spring of 2019: i’ll join the plants and come alive after a dormant season. let the thaw bring forth new growth. “and then my heart with pleasure fills, and dances with the daffodils”

i’ve been thinking lately about what it means to build something. to build a home, to build a career, to build a passion from a dream. it starts with plans, and then happens with work and resources and the right team. i have a lot to figure out.

a friendly breeze, a lifted spirit, a kiss of summer and reminder that there are bright days and more blue skies ahead.

my favorite moments of the week have been right before sunrise, when the world is quiet and the dawn is whispering in the distance “again, again”

life seems to be extra wild this month. between the chaos and entropy of each day, and the work of trying to take care of myself and a dog and my job - ooof. here’s to days where the rain stops, and the clouds part, and you notice that the grass is green and the flowers are blooming and (somehow) life has been moving so fast while staying so still. i don’t know how to tame the wildness, but for now, that’s okay. today i will breathe in, and breathe out, and notice what it means to be alive. just for today.

the perks of having a dog: you walk about six miles up and down the same block. sometimes very slowly. sometimes with a bag of poop in your hand. and sometimes, you stop and notice just how rad the reflection on the window is

it’s been a while! hey. sorry i haven’t been around much on here, or liking your posts. the little dog and i have been bonding a lot. im also learning how to take care of another life form that doesn’t communicate well and also loves to bite me. but he also likes to cuddle and he sometimes would rather give me a hug than eat his food. work has also been kicking my butt. transitioning into more responsibility and faster schedules means that i owe a bit more of my headspace to my office desk. i’m trying to figure out life. balance. friends. rest. how to love better. and how to be a good person. and how to take care of the world. and how to vote responsibly. and how to fold my underwear so that it’s magic tidy. so, here’s to the world outside your phone. it’s big and scary and sometimes involves picking shit up. from a dog, or at work, or sometimes it’s your own baggage. happy 2019. i hope your year has started off swell, or something like it. let’s go find the magic out there.

Trying to take a second to reflect on 2018 but man... it’s a whirlwind. It’s hard to step back and reflect while life is going full speed ahead.

and just like that, it’s Christmas. a breath of hope, a pause from the news cycle, a moment of leaning into peace and love.

this is my second time living in southern california. i lived in los angeles for two years before moving north to seattle, happy to leave behind the traffic and culture. i remember being so worried about the move back down here, especially knowing some of the bruises that california can give people. would i miss the seasons again? or the smell of the rain? what about the forest trees that offered me respite, or the fog over the puget sound that greeted me so often as i got into work? and on top of all that, would i find community, or coffee shops, or a place to call my own? but, somehow, i’m here. the past two years have flown by- with bumps and bruises, yes, but also with growth and healing and progress. i do miss the seasons- i miss december feeling like december, and seeing the leaves change color. but i also love not having to shovel snow, or thaw my car in the morning, or dry out my socks when i get home. i do miss the forests- i miss the mossy smells and the crunch of the forest floor and the adventure of hiking a new trail, not knowing what is around the corner. but i’ve also learned to love the beach, to find peace in the waves and sand, to appreciate that nature is bigger than one ecosystem. san diego, thank you for a good two years. you’ve been kind to me, and i hope that i’ve been kind to you. here’s to the future- and growing up even more.

there are so many good things in this world, but sometimes they are hidden. wrapped in hard days or buried at the end of your neighborhood streets or at the bottom of a cup of coffee with a book. here’s to the weekend: may you discover unexpected goodness in your world, and i hope it finds you like an old friend.
