Today I just felt like stopping by and saying hi. I hope the start of your summer has been wonderful so far. Last week my dad came to visit so that made the start of my summer especially exciting. We went all over the city but one of our stops was Ocean Beach and it happened to be a perfectly beautiful day. If your in San Francisco then you know that summer here isn't like most places. Our summer months are known to be a colder time, and I have to admit I've been missing some summer heat. Luckily it only takes a quick scan of my surroundings to be reminded that I'm blessed to be here right now and I should soak it all in, cooler temps, thick fog and all.
In July I have a new roommate moving into my place! Its always exciting to get to know someone new and after all of the craigslist interviews we did, I'm feeling really great about who is moving in.
Also in the past few weeks I've fallen back in love with yoga. My daily practice is growing stronger and it feels amazing. I'm sure there will be more talk on this as time goes on, but for now I'll just say its the best and I strongly recommend that everybody does it. And I'll leave it at that.
You should also know my dreads turned 7 this month but I actually forgot their birthday on the day of. Bad dread mama. Anyways they were pampered and I dyed some of them pink. It was a good decision. Then I found out its hard to take a selfie and show off your new do when your dreads are 7 years long. Ah, the struggles of aging.
With my dad visiting, roommate interviews, and still working full time, I haven't had quite as much time with my paints in the past fews weeks as I would have liked, but thats alright. Life getting in the way was worth it. I can already see my schedule opening up a bit and I'm feeling more then ready to dedicate some more time to my art. Sometimes unwanted breaks are actually refreshing. Which is probably something I should remember. Anyways, producing/finishing paintings that come from my soul is my main focus right now. I'd love to have my work reach people, be in shows, and ultimately sell it, but I'm accepting that success in those areas takes time. Trusting that the right opportunities are going to present themselves eventually gives me peace and makes the future unknown exciting.
So cheers to feeling content and being present today, because who knows what tomorrow will bring.
