Did you have a good week? This was the theme song for my first week back at real blogging (hooray!). It’s a good theme song for my life in general these days, I think. A good theme song indeed.
You know what I really missed when I wasn’t blogging? The Love Lists! Just because I choose authenticity over positivity doesn’t mean I don’t also practice gratitude. And I missed practicing with all of you. Here’s mine this week – I hope you’ll share your as well!
Le Love List!
I really needed to take that time off, I did. But now that I’m back, and more importantly, now that I’m blogging the way I always wanted to – uncensored – it just feels so dang good! Thank you so much, all of you who have left me comments and sent me emails or just read along quietly, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support and encouragement as I’ve begun to share myself again here. It’s so good to be back!
2. SoCal “winters”.
Temps in the 70s. Bright sun and long lazy walks. The pink jasmine blooming all over my yard and scenting the air with absolute sweetness. Mini skirts. Iced tea.
That’s my kinda winter!
3. MEETING AMANDA PALMER
So yeah, last Tuesday night, that happened. In LA, at a performance piece called Women Of Letters where she was the featured reader (amongst many wonderful women) (damn that was a great event). And I sat with my dear friend afterwards, nursing our beers as the bar emptied out, lost in conversation for a good long while. And when the beers were gone and we finally looked up, the place was cleared save for a few folks meandering around the front of the stage, and whatthefuckthat’sAmandaPalmerrightthere!
I’m still not the kind of girl who believes in divine powers or destiny or anything else of the sort, but man . . . after all that I’ve felt and all that I’ve written about her music these past few months, and then to actually meet her . . . I think amazing things are happening, is what I think. I think 2013 is gonna be something real special.
Also! fresh flowers // my growing sunglasses collection // vintage dresses // Vietnamese food with girlfriends // my Harley-dog, he gives great cuddle // gaining confidence, believing in myself, & realizing I am valuable (monetarily, I mean). // new friendships // old friendships! the best! // a cold beer on a hot Sunday afternoon // Amanda Palmer’s TED Talk which was released last week, have you seen it yet? You should!
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – please tell me what you’re loving this week!
This happy little post will stay at the top of the page all weekend, so stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
Have a fantastic weekend!
