today is 2009. it’s been a long year. i started the year in tokyo, with a long term romantic partner and a job at rbr art center and even though things seemed to be in place i wasn’t happy, one year later, here i am, working at a great job and creative clay, partnerless, in residence at st. pete clay and feeling pretty good. (i don’t miss tokyo or rbr, but i certainly miss my former partner masa, who is the best person you could ever meet. geography is a harsh factor sometimes) but it just goes to show you that life isn’t perfect and pretty all the time, sometimes you have to give up something you like the best for things to move forward.
finally, after of a week of turtle life i moved my stuff into the new place with the help of my brother. i’ll be living with on of the girls from the studio in a big place (a couple of blocks away from the old). we’ll each be on a different side of the house with the kitchen and living room in between and we even have our own bathrooms. A LOT more space then my little garage apartment!
speaking of turtles, this month i’ve been working at a turtle’s pace in the studio. i’ve completed another set of wall hangings, but that’s about it.
so new year, new life and more time in the studio starting now with the help of my favorite christmas gift, the hand built sculpture stands from my brother. he built three, sized so that they nest together when not in use. (pictures coming soon).
and of course some obligatory new year’s resolutions:
1. get my etsy shop up.
2. start taking some yoga classes or JAZZERCISE!
3. if it’s in st. pete, bike there ALWAYS and bike the pinellas trail.
happy new year and akemashite omedetou!
