I’ve been doodling this week and decided to create a vision board. Last year I found a piece of paper of a list (from the year before) in an old purse of things I wanted in my life and they were all true. So yes I believe in externalizing your desires and what you believe you deserve for yourself, in a sense.
So, this is my Dream Home in 3 years
Love spanish style homes! A big kitchen (and NO those are not kids; they’re friends… lol), cozy library, lots of woodsy interior. I used pen and watercolors.
This is what I call home now. I decided to draw this and mark it with the date so one day I can look back and see the “progress.” I think when we feel stuck, we forget that where we are now was once where we hoped we’d be. So, I feel grateful
This one looks a little cleaner and neater because I used a ruler. Not sure if I’m going to put watercolor on it. For some reason I like it black & white.
It feels good getting back into sketching. I’m feeling crappy today so I’m just going to zone out, put some music on and sketch til my fingers get calloused.

“When I first met him, I knew in a moment I would have to spend the next few days re-arranging my mind so there’d be room for him to stay.”
So sweet!! Leaves me fuzzy..

Found a book from one of the coolest bookstores ever, Bart’s Books (Ojai, CA).
Knowing Woman by Irene Claremont de Castillejo
“A woman today lives in perpetual conflict. She cannot slay the dragon of the unconscious without severing her own essential contact with it; without in fact destroying her feminine strength and becoming a mere pseudo-man. Her task is a peculiarly difficult one. She needs the focused consciousness her animus alone can give her, yet she must not forsake her woman’s role of mediator to man. Through a woman, man finds his soul. Through man, woman finds the animus who can express the soul she has never lost. Her burning need is to trust her own diffuse awareness, to know what she knows and to learn to speak of it, for until it is expressed she does not wholly know it.”

he is as God made him
..and that is sufficient.” -Eve
I just want to write write write and draw draw draw until my fingers bleed, until my soul is no longer starved and the blood drips into the empty crevices of my imagined existence. And I think I will do so.
She is my muse… whoever she is, she is and will always be who I write for.
I have been drawing more because I haven’t been able to write lately. I am loving the freedom of creating beautiful images on paper.
