...feeling proud of myself.

i'll ever make anything
of myself?

in other news,
i miss my cottage.
birch trees,
the dock at
reading on the deck,
and just
lazing around.

sunny days,
getting longer,
filled with light music
and picnics in the park...


my beautiful boy has gone to
california for 10 days.
he left today.

i came home from
dropping him off at the airport
and ripped all the weeds
out of our front+back yards,
pruned the rose bushes,
and discovered chives
in a tiny spot
hidden in back.

so now i feel
(a bit) less sad.

then i'm gonna break it till it falls apart...

"nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. all of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. but there is this gap. for the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good. it’s trying to be good, it has potential, but it’s not. but your taste, the thing that got you into the game, is still killer. and your taste is why your work disappoints you. a lot of people never get past this phase, they quit. most people I know who do interesting, creative work went through years of this. we know our work doesn’t have this special thing that we want it to have. we all go through this. and if you are just starting out or you are still in this phase, you gotta know it’s normal and the most important thing you can do is do a lot of work. put yourself on a deadline so that every week you will finish one story. it is only by going through a volume of work that you will close that gap, and your work will be as good as your ambitions. and I took longer to figure out how to do this than anyone I’ve ever met. it’s gonna take awhile. it’s normal to take awhile. you’ve just gotta fight your way through."

-ira glass.

this thought really inspires me.
i've been feeling really stuck-in-the-mud
and i think this will help...

the future
may yet hold
something unexpected.
a new place to live,
a new way to explore...
a new beginning.
