A Birthday in the House

Last night I went out dancing with a bunch of people to celebrate my friend Tabitha's birthday. We shook our asses to the sounds of David Alvarado and Doc Martin . The space was great and loads of people were moving. I haven't gotten my groove on to good house music in such a long time. The bass was so heavy during Doc's set that I could feel the vibrations in my nostrils. (I made sure that I had my earplugs in!)

It was nice to hang with some people in LA who are becoming my friends.

Oooh, what fun we had! My legs are tired and I'm smiling.

Recurrent Nightmares

I like to write, draw and paste all sorts of things in my journals. I was looking through my old ones for inspiration and came across something that I had saved from a conversation with a friend. It illustrates a period in my life:

"...and when he would sleep in my bed, I would have the screaming dream."

It's haunting when I read it and I am so happy that I have passed through that time.

Small Plate, Big Portions

It seems like I have less and less time. I have to divide my time up between work, sleep, John, play (which includes socializing), exercise, errands (paperwork and cleaning will be lumped in here), volunteering, making art, and the business of art. Usually the art and exercise gets cut out if I make time for socializing, and vice-versa. It is frustrating and I'm feeling very off-center because I haven't done much art-making.

Oh, why wasn't I a trust fund child?

John says that I have very bad time management skills.

I just shouldn't have spent a few too many years getting silly and dancing around at raves and clubs. I'm always saying that to myself and everyone else. I know that I mustn't regret the past. Besides, it sure was a heck of a lot of fun. Those were some of the best years of my life. It was a time of losing and finding myself in the medium of dance music.


After the sun came up my cousin, a friend, and I walked to the beach and watched the waves in silence. Contemplating the ocean reminded me that there is nothing to fear about dying.

Simplicity on Valentine's Day

While many people were dealing with crowded restaraunts, John and I were content to eat bi bim bap and unagi don at the Marukai market food court. (It is a grocery store with mostly Japanese foods and other products. The adjoining food court serves both yummy Japanese and Korean dishes.)

It was exactly where we wanted to be.

A Simple Request

I am going to cut and paste something from the "About" section for anyone who needs some schooling on weblog etiquette:

If you know me and you are a regular reader of my blog, please inform me. This website is out for public viewing but it starts to feel a bit stalker-ish when people read this and don't tell me. It's like peeking into my open window without saying hello. And if you don't know me...welcome! Please drop an email or feel free to comment. I do appreciate feedback.

Why? WHY??? (I'm down on my knees sobbing)

Oh my God...

I swear that I didn't press delete. I have no clue what the f*** happened.

All of the research that I have done in the past year and a half...the hours and hours which must've amounted to WEEKS of nonstop research if added all up back to back...IT HAS ALL DISAPPEARED!!!! All of my art resource bookmarks...the galleries, grants, residencies, web pages with more links, photo and art organizations, all of the possible opportunities, WORLDWIDE! GONE!!!

All of my hard work down the drain!!!!!!!!!!!

While searching around online, I found this great quote by Oscar Wilde:

"We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars..."

It makes me think of my Natoma Home series.

It's all about seeing beauty in everything.

It's my birthday today! I am now thirty-three years old. (Still considered early 30's. Next year will be different...I will be entering my mid 30's. Yikes!)
