so yeah…look what I found! We’ll see how long this lasts but I think I’d like to write/share again. Just like fb and texting are raising a generation unfamiliar with eye contact, confrontation and accountability, I think the habit of keeping in touch via status updates has crippled the art/tendency/ability to tell a story.

(side note: it’s 2012, should I really have to add ‘texting’ to the dictionary?)

I would like to be able to write as well as I talk. I can carry on a conversation making full use of emotions, sarcasm, and timing but I’ve learn that doesn’t necessary translate to the written word. I have this on going daydream that I’m actually really good at _______, all I need is a few lessons or coaching. It’s fair to think of that as reality if you subscribe to the philosophy of anything being possible if you put your mind to it. I’ll choose to interpret ‘putting your mind to it’ as practice, practice, practice.

There are lots of stories in my head, some of them i like to think of as nuggets of wisdom everyone would benefit from. Daydreams, like I said.

I’ve thought about writing letters to people I once knew. sharing their (positive) impact on my life and development.

My recovery is, happily, a constant source of inspiration. Lately I’ve been studying on the idea of doing your best. I take comfort in the summation ‘They did the best with what they had’ or ‘We’re all doing the best we can with what we have (and some of us have more than others).’

Watching my life unfold nothing like I’d imagined it and embracing that, trying to be open and welcoming to the rest.

The trend/philosophy/culture of furkids. Pets as children regarding resources and family. Having four (!) myself I’m wont to defend the lifestyle…

My recent journey of substantial weight loss and the turn back towards that version of myself. The idea that the known is ‘better/preferred’ over the unknown, even if the latter is superior in EVERY way.

What advice this 30s version of myself would offer the 20s version. Can hindsight really be 20/20 if you don’t apply the lesson going forward?

Like I said, nuggets

So, if any of you every subscribed to me you’ll be the only ones to see this. For now.

I’m not a super poppy person when it comes to music.  I hardly listen to the radio for this reason.  BUT;  please,  please,  please watch this Lady Gaga video for her new song ‘Bad Romance’.  Yes she dresses weird and is/isn’t as crazy as she looks, but man-alive I am grateful for something different.  A blogger recommended this and thats how I came about it, immediately thereafter I proceeded to watch it about ten times in a row.

Song; beautiful

Video; beautiful

Sentiment; beautiful

kinda reminds me of early breakthrough Madonna…

bigger pics?

I’m working on it Jenny, you’ve set the bar pretty high, though!  I’m learning that there are many more options than just Cut, Copy & Paste….

maybe this one?

is this better?

OK, I think I know what I did wrong.  I’ll try again (when I’m not at work!)

Puppet Shows, Funnel Cake, Sunscreen…OH MY!

so it’s been a great festival season so far. Candler Park was fun and worth it. It was nice to get back into the swing of things after taking the summer off.

This weekend (10/24-25) is the Autumn Fest in Avondale Estates. Jason has been working on A LOT of new stuff and we’re excited about the debut of key chains, necklaces and (hopefully) t-shirts. We will definitely have t-shirts by Cabbagetown Chomp & Stomp and Holiday ICE.

As much as we both stress out in the days before and setting up that first morning, we really do enjoy the experience. Jason has so much fun drawing customs monsters/robots for folks and even if a show isn’t profitable, there is such potential for making new friends and learning more about try to make it as an artist.

Mmmm, this post seems to be strictly informative but not about me. I’ll work on that. Sorry I’ve been away for so long but I have big plans for LTWATC so I hope you stick around.

Even though I’m not vah-klempt, please do talk amongst yourselves and leave some comments letting me know that the middle-aged unemployed naked man in Tulsa isn’t the only one reading…
