these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.

my artist website is here.

long, long day with aching legs...

oh, i am worn out. another 10 hour painting day. and in order to accommodate my renewed zeal for painting, i've been doing The Jog in the evenings... and blogging in the evenings too it seems. which sort of sucks because at this point in the day i'm spent. but all the hard work is definitely paying off. the sacrifice of my morning routines is worth it. i'm still getting up early, still drinking coffee and scribbling in my notebook, i'm just pushing everything else to the end of the day once my painting has been worked as hard as it can be. the 3rd Lineage canvas should be finished tomorrow.

i am happy and tired and craving corn dogs or something that would be as equally bad. i must resist. or not. it's no fun being good ALL the time.

tonight i have no other plans other than getting in bed early. here's to a much needed 10 hour sleep.
