That's why they call it "fishing" and not "catchng fish"

Lovely day spent sunning, bbq-ing and recovering by the river with great friends.



Some days, freelancing finally cracks open the mystery of what it was like for all those kids I grew up with that were home schooled.


Just scored HUGE at the pub!  They were getting rid of all of the lost and found items, I got a sweet winter coat, a blazer and a cashmere sweater and scarf.  All set for next winter!  After some dry cleaning, that is...


Warm and Fuzzies

Birthday BBQ, Reggae Show, adventures in car towing, leisurely Sunday naps, and late night movies.  This was one of those weekends where I'm reminded just how much I love those very special people in my life.


First day of freelance freedom feels fantastic!!!! 


Totally chair groovin' to this album this gorgeous morning!


If you have spoken to me AT ALL in the last 6 months, you will a) probably have never guessed that this ad is actually for my job.  B) laugh at how simple they make it all sound...

Tivoli Toddling

Broiled Salmon with herbed quinoa and arugula salad with homemade roasted tomato, garlic and rosemary confit was just the start to a pretty awesome evening.



I had a dream that, for the first time in a long time, made me wake up and not be able to catch my breath.  It was a typical night at the Swan, and it was packed with everyone I know and love, including my mom and brother.  However, while it was the Swan, its was not that actual building.  There was a balcony, and the whole thing was quite high up and almost corporate feeling, as though in a high rise.  In any case, there was an accident.  A collapse of some sort of significant structure, that resulted in blood literally running down hallways.  Bodies of some of my closest friend were being thrown down chutes in an effort to assess the damage.  And Nickerson was running the halls screaming about the blood and the carnage.  He just kept repeating "they're all dead!".  When I finally reached the site of the accident, apparently my brain could not even comprehend what it would look like to see my friends as bodies, because no matter how I tried to focus, it wouldn't come into view.  The dream was very specific as to those that had been killed, the list I won't share, I forced myself to wake up as I began searching frantically for my mother and brother, tripping over bodies, my feet covered in the blood of those that I love.  I woke up breathless and terrified.
After awhile I convinced myself it was safe to fall asleep, that the dream wouldn't follow me, only to be put into yet another community dream, where everyone was at a party at the mansion, and I had brought Cash Cat.  It was time to go home, yet suddenly the house was filled with cats, and I kept trying to catch mine, and would follow various kitties that at the time were Cash, until I would grab them, and they'd be the wrong cat.  For some reason, this dream was almost more disturbing than the first.
What is up with my thoughts about Tivoli?  I know the faith that I had had in some of its members has been permanently shattered.  That this past week has resulted in some severe spring cleaning of friendships.  And some times I feel like I've fallen down this rabbit hole, where I'm chasing something that is just out of reach.  That at first glance appears one way, until it's finally confronted and only then rears its true appearance. 
Perhaps all of this honesty and self reflection I'm immersed in from so many angles is enlightening me as to how I really feel about this life I live.


30 so far

I have to say, i got the BEST birthday presents for my birthday!  Jewelry, wine, "camping" supplies, and a printer/scanner/copy machine from my favorite.  My loves are the best!

Tivoli's taking over The Appollo

May 1st...get on the bus!
It's a gorgeous day!  Too bad right now the world looks so ugly in so many other ways.


Summmer Projects just expanded

Some kid in one of the weird cubby hole apartments near the atm machine in town has my exact NanNan chairs only upholstered in red...I love the green mine came in...but someday, maybe.
You can not know how happy finding this makes me...You had to know me 10 years ago, yet know me now....

The End

12+ hour days make me tired.  But today I gave my two week notice, and so after April14th, I will be back to having only my living room as my office...and that's the way I like it for the sunshine months! 
Now to buy a laptop so I can work from the river.

April 2nd, 2010

Today was my 30th birthday
I found out my business is about to take off
I fit into a size 6 jeans
I finally found the perfect pair of sunglasses
I got my first pair of pearl earrings
My father made me lobster tails and London Broil
The Check Engine light finally went off in my car
I spent the evening with a glass of white wine and my boys

It was a pretty good day!


Things maybe you only learn in your 30's...
