Self Gratification

Today, while sneezing from the dust at work, I remembered how I used to make myself sneeze when I was a little girl. I would hit my nose dead center with the heel of my palm and that would usually start a sneezing fit. I used to do this several times in a row and manage to never really hurt my nose because the force was calculated.

You may be wondering, what was I doing? Was I some sort of masochist? Well, I experienced no pain while doing this and I would get some sort of natural high from sneezing so much. I'd get all woozy and let out a big blissful sigh.

During the 10th grade, I learned in a biology class that sneezing triggers the same pleasure centers in the brain as an orgasm does. That explained it all to me.

I'm a born hedonist.

My Site

I've been working on my art website for the past week. It is still not perfect but it looks a lot better.

I can now move on to other things.

Painting Again

I've been wanting to get back into doing collage and a little painting. The painting is a hard shift for me because I haven't done it in so long and the mediums that I've felt comfortable most comfortable working with is photography, ceramics, and collage/assemblage. I like the process of piecing things together and painting is more about color on a 2-d surface. It is like I am learning a medium all over again. It is a little frustrating because things aren't quite looking like how I want them to. But I'll just keep painting because I miss participating in a process where I enter a state of flow.

When the photographer said that we might have to put a c-stand up, I froze. I can't ever get those things up without a fight. I prayed that he wouldn't be looking when that time came. Luckily, it never did.

Celebrating in the Desert

Went to a Full Moon Gathering this weekend. I had a really great time despite all of the psytrance. Too bad it got broken up in the morning right before John was about to play.

East vs. West

My friends Jessie and Mike stayed with us for a few days before heading off on their 5 month trip to various places around the world with their first stop in Fiji. Jessie is my dear friend from San Francisco who may move away from the west coast if her boyfriend gets accepted into an architecture school on the east coast. I hope that they have the most awesome trip and and come back to live on the west coast. I had tears in my eyes when I thought of them this evening.
