Ok, so I was a bit freaked out in my last post, but now I’m really starting to enjoy the Simple Life. Here are some of my favorite experiences so far, in pictures…
The country can be pretty wicked, I must admit.
Hey loves, more VU pictures. I promise you words tomorrow, had a bit of a busy day today. It seems that when every one else is sleeping I’m awake, and when everyone else is on vaycay, I’m working! Ah, such is life, rent day comes as often as the full moon. Speak soon!
As fun as pictures are, for those of you who may be missing my voice, I’m back. Just want to offer up some holiday well-wishes in the season of giving and forgiving and receiving and new leafs and resolutions, dark days and ETC. Yesterday, I celebrated soltace with a couple of good friends, and the darkest day of the year, although at first quite tragic, ended up feeling pretty revelatory. On the advice of our Soltace expert friend, we conducted a little ceremony to cleanse the old and bring in the new. Like ashes scattered to sea, we grabbed the tray from the toaster oven, ripped some scraps out of my sketch pad and made a very mini-bonfire out of bad memories past, and the things that were holding us down and back, from last year. Duly cleansed, we were able to then imagine the growth and the joy that we are definitely going to let in during this new year. I hope your simple ceremonies are as blessed. If your celebrating the holidays with family, please don’t break down, have fun, laugh it off, and if you are chilling with city orphans/chosen family, eat another latke for me, enjoy your vegan turkey, and watch that Christmas pudding catch on fire, with a little soltace glow left in your eye!
