I love cool people. In my artistic travels I get to meet cool people. I also meet unfriendly, ego filled, not cool people. But usually I run across some very cool individuals. People that inspire, people who care, people that step up to the plate and take big swings. I like that. I don't mesh with people that play it safe on the sidelines waiting to be picked. I like people that create. It doesn't matter what they create. A story, family, a new way, food, art, friends. Personal style. The best is the young kid who wants to wear cowboy boots, a yellow rain hat, and that piece of an old Halloween costume as he travels with mom on errands. Lately I run across a lot of people who let the world define who they are. One of the things about moving an excessive amount as a kid is that you begin to figure this out. Every move is a chance to start again. To redefine who, and what you want to be. Once you learn that you don't need to move in order to do this- life can be grand. You define your place in the world.
I'm rambling again. Soapbox jump.
Cool people.I met another one- Jen Byard. Met her a few weeks ago. Been working on her blog. I believe we laughed more than we worked. She is also from the land of rain. The great wetland of "Seattle", Wa. We had a lot to share. Jen is one of those cool people I mentioned. Just wanted to say thanks Jen. For having a kind heart, inspiring way, and loving life attitude. It was great working with you.
Congratulations on your new blog and (new look) website.
So for you Jen -I give you my favorite TV show of the seventies. You might need to pause the music player up top.
