Heck, I love how it looks splooched on the ground where I spilled a little.
I've also gotten onto this image today of people walking-- specifically, kind of strolling. I like the idea of a female figure striding across whatever good old #46 turns out to be, kind of like me walking through my life, not totally understanding everything, but that being okay because whatever it is, it's beautiful. "Or something," as my buddy Pam would say. :)
We'd both decided to give racing a little try this year. We're always kind of jokingly competitive with ourselves anyway, and have improved so much we were feeling pretty "froggy" as another friend says. Well, these new pedals of hers have led to numerous nasty spills lately, and Pam didn't find racing to be much fun at all, just stressful. Now I'm examining my own riding goals. I didn't have tons of fun last time out (racing), but feel like I need to give it a couple more tries at least. I've definitely decided though, that fun is my main goal, the only goal really, that matters. Not getting faster and faster (although that's kind of fun too), not becoming some hot-shot racer (as IF)(this is seriously hilarious). So, the next couple races might be my last, but we'll see. If they are, I at least tried something out of my comfort zone.
I like how Pam gets me thinking about things though, and she's the bestest playmate I got after all!
Off topic-- Here's that one commission I've been working on forever. Finally done!! I like them. Hopefully the client will. :)
Here's another piece that isn't done, but I like how the paint /rust is setting up.
I think I'm just going to focus on having my own style, wearing things I like, and being the kind of person I want-- the best version of me I can be-- which covers a hell of a lot of ground let me tell you! Basically, when people see me, I'd like them to see someone positive, who makes them feel good about themselves, no matter if that person has funny hair or a few wrinkles or whatever. (Sometimes *fierce*, but lots of times surprisingly vulnerable, as another friend recently pointed out. Which is fine.) :)
Man this is long! Okay-- this is the last thing. Lately I've been so in love with my life and Dan and OUR life. I guess having all my friends (almost-- you guys who missed it really missed out!) around me last weekend just brought home how super lucky I am. I have a bunch of friends right now, some single, some not, who have either recently moved, or are in the process of finding a place or whatever, and I just wanted to put this song up for you guys--- "Home." Here's to all of you finding the spot/person/life where you can just be completely yourself, and relax. "MWAAH!"
