Saturday was Pride Fest down next to the canal. This year was the first year that I could check it out. I walked down and spent a fun hour before walking to the train station to hop a train for dinner with some Seattle family who had been on vacation in NH before catching their flight back to Seattle.
I love my new city.

After a wonderful dinner I grabbed the train back to Providence in time for their night time Pride parade. While walking to the center of town I saw the most glorious light. This is not photoshop enhanced.
And then, as always, the parade was a good time. There is something magical about celebrating at night.
It's been a while since I posted. I have full intention of returning to this blog with longer posts and more frequent entries, but sadly, I've been neglectful.
One day it will happen.
I am still working a temp position and I need to keep reminding myself that there is a fair amount of stress when not a permanent employee. In addition, it doesn't really pay the bills. I spend my time out of work in an attempt to keep a semblance of normalcy and routine in the midst of this shaky ground. It involves spending more time experimenting with cooking, which takes time, hitting the gym 4 - 5 times a week, work with my art and then make time to see friends and visit my folks once a month.
So, that's my life in a nutshell. It may give the impression of a mundane life but there is much richness found in the spaces.
Last weekend I had planned on going to the beach, but stayed in and worked on paintings for two days. I hadn't been to Horseneck Beach since April.
On Wednesday afternoon, as I was leaving work I took a left instead of a right and ended up here.
