friday after work i went to visit s-. we walked around her neighborhood for awhile looking for apartments for me. after my lease is up here in st. pete i am thinking i’ll move to sarasota. i had entertained some sweet thoughts about screened in porches and tomato plants but i have recently decided that i am only looking for temporary sublets. i love my life here in st. pete/sarasota but i am ready for another adventure. in january of 2010 or so i am gonna roll on from these parts. my clay co. residency ends in september, my contract with creative clay in december. yeah, the economy is in a downward spiral, and i don’t know what that will mean in another 6 months or a year, but i know i have to keep moving forward. there are so many good reasons to stay in one place but one thing i learned in tokyo is that it’s even when it’s easy and comfortable to stay in one place it’s not always the right thing to do. i might have multiple jobs and a studio here, and in tokyo i had the ultimate good thing (l.o.v.e.) but there’s something bigger than all that.
getting on your train tracks and staying on them and taking them to the last stop.
