mixed media on wood
when i was in the 5th grade, i wanted to be a ballerina. we had just moved to the city and i was coming out of my tomboy days of living out in the country. i thought i’d give ballet a try. i think i may have only lasted a few weeks. turns out i wasn’t a very good ballerina. later i learned that the instructor told my mom that i could stand to lose a few pounds. i was 10 years old and nowhere near overweight. maybe a little chubby. but c’mon already!
today, i had to wear a scarf when i went outdoors. you’d be surprised how happy that made me. along with the cooler weather, i am loving the new tunes, especially dar williams and brandi carlile.
last nite john and i stayed up late playing yatzee and gin. i kick ass at yatzee. really, i do.
