midday with gary : )

edible art:

I celebrated with Jackson Pollock on my birthday this year!

Actually, I was celebrating part of the day I came into existence with both of the folks who were the responsible parties in that matter. The drink, on the other hand, is the only part of the story that has anything to do with Pollock. It is inspired by the artist and made at the Town Talk Diner, a heavenly place to be. Just like Pollock's work, I appreciated it a little more for the concept. The kind bartendar also made birthday shots infused with lavender, which were incredible. I always have a good time when part of the night is spent at this place.


This is one of the projects that I've been working on lately. Well, the research for it has been years in the making, though it's obvious by my craftsmanship that the sewing part could use a little more attention as well ; )

And my lack of postings this month is brought to you by censorship. I find that some of the things that I want to put on here may not be appropriate. For who or what? Not sure. Perhaps my professional advancement in this world ; ) I'm trying to follow my own philosophy of some things being better left on the nightstand than submitted to the world. So, I've been here. It's just that not much of what I've got to say lately is making it onto these pages.

nice to meet you. again.

dear adulthood,

allow me to introduce myself...again. you and i have crossed paths with one another on and off throughout the years, casually mingling with one another when circumstances have called for it.

the truth is that we've known each other as far as i can remember. we grew up together. you and i were nearly inseparable. somehow we parted ways. you may not recognize me now, and some details about you are quite fuzzy for me at times too, but down to my core i know you.

i just want to thank you for your equally renewed interest in getting to know one another, a better match now than back then. our date today was quite lovely. your creative daytime adventures have proven that they can be just as colorful as your counterpart's evening masquerades.

i realize it will take us awhile before we are dear friends again, and we never will most likely never be the best of friends, but i like this getting to each other little by little sort of thing we've got going on right now. it works for me.
