Automediality is a key component of my artistic practice.
Automediality is a form of autobiography through media,
in real time, shaped by the media outlets utilized
this journal is one of my media outlets

other things that are crystal clear
I love you
and
I miss you
ok, maybe I would change one thing
I would love more
every day, full of love and hope
determination
and a knowing that it is all worth it
looking back
I can see that I had no concept
of what was to come
but even if I did know
I would do it all again
isolation is the gift
all others are a test of endurance
I know on the outside,
it appears that I have nothing
but in the fullness of my heart
lies the universe
what I have seen from this experience
is that I am an eternally hopeful spirit
loving and good, patient and kind
I can see I have become 
who I have always wanted to be
in so many ways
mostly in my heart
this past weekend
I began to clean out my laptop
I have had it since 2011
I have been ignoring
"Your disk is almost full"
for a while now
It turns out that most of my space
has been taken up by photos
48,900 to be exact
So I have been reliving my life
through transferring these photos
to an external hard drive

your true essence glows from within


can't wait to see everyone again
my Sunday mornings
curled up with my lion
even when only in my heart
I was allowed to feel
open to love
is like absorbing the warmth of the sun
 hold back?
so I can be on my deathbed with regrets?
no thanks

there are a lot of renditions of this song
but for me there is only one
I had to overcome
a lot of self-hatred
and agony over things I had done

to be able to love myself
I found self forgiveness 
it took my lifetime
to be able to love myself
it was worth every
unloved moment
I love myself
as I want others
to love me
and I find myself to be
very lovable 
I love others
as I want to be loved.
Their true selves
and
as they are. 
my definition of hell
is to be
in a relationship
loveless
I do not wish to be alone
but more than that
I do not wish to be with another
without love
I chose love
and 
every day
choose love
the stakes are higher
in love
there is much to be lost or gained
it is not a matter of perspective
it is a choice

my soul is hitched to a harp 
made of the rays of diamonds,
and when I hear the rich tones of your voice,
the harp starts its music
overwhelming me

I feel that my body
is healing 
I am still very careful
about what I eat,
but I no longer feel as anxious as I have
every day I do my ballet,
I feel stronger and stronger
I feel happy 
my body feels happy
I sleep better
and overall
I feel so much healthier

this piece is a collaboration with Li Huang that we did
at SCAD.  Li enameled the metal mesh heart that I formed,
and I added it to a previous piece I had made (the ribcage)
I miss my SCAD family
I love you
there is more pain
in withholding love
than there is in a broken heart
the heart wants
what the heart wants
you cannot control
love
let it flow
in, through and out from you
and give it to those
you love

heart
would that you could
enfold
me
in your arms
hold my hand
show me
the way
whatever you 
see whatever
you say
will I do
so I can let
go
of all that I 
do 
to hold 
me
from all the love
I am to give
why must I feel 
so vulnerable 
after I express myself
to someone,
even if it is just reaching out
to say hello?

it's a beautiful day
the birds are happy
I am happy too

I looooooove bees
these made me so happy this morning

I bought this handbag on a visit to SF
back in 2005
my friend brought me to the shop
April in Paris
owned by Beatrice Amblard
She trained and worked at Hermès
before moving to the US and starting her own brand
I loved the idea of being able to order a 
one-of-a-kind bag made by an artisan 
of her talents and training
Coincidentally, during my visit
Beatrice was celebrating 
her 20th anniversary in business.
I was thrilled to be able to attend the event
Her studio is still on Clement St
but in a larger spot,
now with a school!
would love to go!
Bea's logo is the bee
I have one on my bag
 
we went up to Sebastopol
to visit my friend's antique ranch
so peaceful
I can't wait to visit again
no one was as happy as I 
to see a bathtub again
not to mention a 6 foot tub!
I actually floated

my first adventure in SF
was going downtown
with my friend to visit her favorite shops
our first stop was Harry Winston
This branch is their first in SF
We were welcomed with a red carpet
by Matthew
and encouraged to try on our favorite pieces.
When I tried on this beautiful watch,
Matthew said to do what I would do if
he wasn't there.
I said I would take selfies if you weren't here!
πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
he said, "go ahead!!"
so I did!!
