happy birthday to me.  i like birthdays. it’s an excuse to indulge myself and i always need another excuse to do so.

trust me: self care is of upmost priority.

so in a bit i will be headed to the naked spa for a massage. and then a little shin dig.

i’ve been wanting to do some kind of art collaboration being inspired lately by littlebrownpen‘s color photo shoots and the book i send you this cadmium red…the invitation and request follows:

on february 26  i will begin the final
year of twenty
and i would love nothing more than
to end with color.

as you know or have seen
the last few months have felt like
sitting in the dark
i have described it as feeling as
thought the color has drained for my body
and i am keep walking, pushing if further
down.

all of you are significant
in someway to my twenties
and i want a birthday
that is complimentary to my vision of
COLOR

each of you are invited to my home on
february 26th around 7.30 pm
for wine, snacks, cupcakes
and collage making.
my vision is for each of us to make a collage
of a single color.
and hopefully between all of us we will have
a splash of hues.

you may want to start collecting items now or
if you have
paints, colored pencils, fabric scraps, magazines to contribute that would be great.
please email me if you can come
and your color of choice.

{pictures will be posted}

Blessèd sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit
of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated

And let my cry come unto Thee.

this was actually my first introduction to jason mraz. i’ll admit i’m not much of a fan of anything else

but my friend ben introduced me to la blogotheque a year or so ago as the reason he still loved current musicians….take away concerts that returns to the heart of artist and performance

not tainted with big auditoriums, screaming fans, reverb.

sometimes i think of this video on days when the sky breaks blue after many long gray days, when i want to escape to a french street and daydream.
