recently inspired to write a little haiku.
right here i exist,
as the fall embraces me.
red as i let go.
many things to write about today. i have been a terrible blogger as of late, really for the past few years. too much online media to keep up to but his is truly my favorite type of communication.... a journal.
its three (yes 3:) days early but... its time for the 10th annual skin photos:) something i initiated years back to keep myself motivated. exhibitionary, ego, crazy, i deny none but it works, or so i have thought.
i'm soon to be 47 and i still feel and act somewhere in my 30's. this could prove to be a good, b/c i will need all the youth i can muster here soon. my 22 year old bar dream looks like it may happen here in boone. (signing of a lease later this week) the spot in negotiation is on howard street, right across from where i have had my studio for the past 2 months.
studio3333 will always be alive, it is my creative entity, the modern rustic space however will only be rolling thru december and then we will see what lies ahead for it. it will be a crazy 3 months trying to get the bar, renovated and open, while holding a studio open, but its all good exposure and i like that speed. stay tuned for more on the bar later.
both houses are still in my possession and i'm am loving living in the small one. (doesn't feel as lonely) my renters are good in the dragonfly, and have rumored that they want to buy it. if the price is right i could let it go, we will see have that rolls out too.
still single but always hopeful, and finding more patience as i go. tex turned 16 this year and had a fairly good summer, yet the end for him is near and im ready when he says its time. his hips are very painful and he struggles to get up most times, but he is still the lover he has always been:)
winter is around the corner and i'm not ready. i did not get near enough heat this summer, but i hope at least it brings snow this time around. happy peace day on the 21st, i love the coinciding day. next time you're in boone, look for "the skinny joint" (a beer wine and tequilla bar) and come see me, ill give you the skinny:)
here's to 48....
