Learning to appreciate all of life’s details as they intermingle together and build upon each other into the greater picture continues to offer a plethora of positive consequences. That is to say,life tends to reward as the picture becomes clearer and our own intentions become more honorable.
Lately I feel like a magnet pulling everything I need to me without even consciously doing so. And I know this is not happening to myself alone. That’s a new feeling for me. I come from places not so open as Seattle and used to feel a necessary need to hide how I really see things. Coming to Washington is serving as my latest tool for tearing down more of that wall.

I understand a little better now what people mean when they find a new place or hobby or group of people and describe it as “coming home”. It’s feels as though I may finally have found a place to build my life as I see it from the ground up. It’s an amazing sense of control that comes out of the desire to lose control.
So here’s what’s going on in the real world outside of my head…
As I mentioned before, I have joined forces with Erin Chechi of Premasutra Silk. This is going very well. Erin has a studio in the 619 building in Pioneer Square. This building has been condemned and the artists force to move out. At first that seemed like it sucked but really it’s proving to be quite a positive thing. Erin is basically being paid for her expenses and time and being helped with rent in whatever studio we find to move to. Sweet! This will be the perfect new beginning for our new beginning!
In other news, I also took to selling the silk quite nicely at the Redmond Market this past weekend. Painting and selling silk is the new main focus. Up, Up and Away! It’s gonna be great! I love this product, I love the idea of wearable art, I love feeling that I am a needed piece within a bigger whole that is steadily and with determination, moving towards a freer way of life.
