The slate is thoroughly blank right now.  I've never been so wide open and directionless in my whole life.  It's partly brilliant and partly terrifying.  Some days I want to hop on a train, other days I want to wrap an electric blanket around my heart.  It's good for me to stay in this place for a while and just wonder what happens next.  I don't usually have the luxury or give myself that opportunity.  When my compass stops spinning I'll let you know where it lands...

Check me out on Etsy!

I've joined the land of Etsy! (Kind of like OZ for makers)

If you're not familiar with the glory that is this site, let me just educate you.  Made up of handmade and vintage, Etsy is a beautifully designed online craft fair and flea market.  From fancy handmade ties to vintage housewares, you can find really unique prints and artwork too. It also allows you to find artists near you and shop locally!  
I'm stocking up my inventory, trying to make a go of selling vintage and re-working unique pieces I find along the way.  
My sister also partakes: Ryanne's Valley Vintage

Stop by the shop, and tell your friends!

Lone Kitchen

Click to Play

I've had a lot of time over the last 6 months to make food, do dishes and be alone in the kitchen.  It's been a mix of things but mostly it reminds me that no amount of thinking or being lonely gets in the way of a good meal and a good radio station.  

Not sure who the music is by, but if you have the iphone app, you can figure it out yourself and let me know...

You've been warned.  I had some requests to see my Picc line taken out, so here it is.  And also some footage from my 5 days in the hospital (we were admitted on my birthday), and some other stuff from the 20 day treatment too.  All of the nurses I worked with were incredible.  Hospitals and clinics wouldn't function at all without their wicked hard work and love.  I couldn't have gone through that whole thing without their support, attention and concern.  Nurses are total heros.

I had a dream last night about my picc line.  It was fluttering in my heart, I could feel the whole thing running through my arm, and at some point it was taken out.  I remember the noodle of it, swaying, towards the end of my dream.  Then my dream progressed into some kind of thrift store that was actually a princess castle... only I would dream about royal thrift stores.

Cow Friend

Click to Play
This is my favorite baby bull. He's the only black angus in the bunch with a white face. He used to be too timid to come anywhere near me, but now he let's me lean into him and scratch under his neck. Maybe I'll tame him and bring him home on the plane. He followed me home...

Also, see Ryan's version!

Speaking in Tongues

Click to Play
My grandmother isn't religious at all, but there is this amazing public access channel that plays this preacher all the time.  Though, conservative talk radio is pretty darn close to speaking in tongues, and there is plenty of that here.  Sometimes I step outside and it feels so peaceful with the cows and the breeze.  And then I walk back inside and it's like an assault on the intellect of humanity.  It's a goddamn miracle gran isn't religious because if you added that to the paranoia, racism, conservative political views and some kind of meat at every meal, I would be more in hell than I already am.
