I'm feeling super nostalgic lately... and really who can blame me. In the last several months my life has changed in such a positive way just by moving. I had forgotten the little joys in life.. like:
-having space to spread out. -sitting at a kitchen table with the sunlight coming through the windows while having coffee. -having my bedroom be separate from my kitchen. -sleep and lots of it, deep sound dream filled sleep. -silence - not listening to someone above me pounding around like they are 3 times their size. Putting Tibetan chants on at a very ungodly volume and hour. -having a hot spacious shower to melt in.. as opposed to my old shower that you could barely move in.. it was like a hibernation pod or some crap. -being able to sit on the couch and curl up with dogs. -having a yard..
I could really go on forever. My last place was pretty hard for me to be in.. I never invited anyone over during the entire time I lived there. It was dark and depressing. I feel like my health has improved by 200%.
Remember how scary it was when you were young.. freaky troubling things were supposed to happen on this supposed cursed day. Now it just seems mundane and another day..but it's special because it is Friday. Anyway....
I found myself in the studio last night.. which is great! My studio is in itself a work in progress but I'm happy. I have a little space set up in the garage of my new place. I was sitting by the comforting low rumble of the dryer while I worked. It was perfect and just the way it needed to be plus kept me warm. I made several pages for future books and also was inspired to paint. I haven't painted in a very, very long time. I'm happy for the inspiration and the challenge. We shall see what is to come next. I need to keep working though because the event is nearing.
What I'm listening to... Lhasa de Sela's new self titled album - yum I have recently been enjoying an oldie.. Panda and Angel. I hope they come and sleep on my floor again soon.
