Destroying the old.  
Making new.

Because I really dig fire and get to experience it often since I've moved to Providence, I am looking forward to enjoying NYE with friends, outdoors...around a fire pit. Stoked! Just figuring out my attire because it's dropping to 20 degrees tonight.

Happy New Year everyone!!

I enjoy being able to see an expanse of sky from my house.  This was taken Sunday morning from my living room.

Yesterday, I discovered the 2009 award-winning animation, "Mary and Max" on Netflix streaming.  It's kind of brilliant.  Beautifully done.  Funny.  Sad.  A black comedy in claymation and not meant for children.  The film so entranced me that I'm watching it again this evening.  Here are some shots I took of the film on my laptop screen.  Gorgeous stuff.

It's been a while...months, since I've posted.

August and September left me financially strapped.  I was in the middle of a lengthy hiring process for a new job, my temp job wasn't paying the bills and I had maxed out my two credit cards with frivolities such as food and gas.  I became acutely aware of how frightened I was, although I tried really hard not to have it consume my days.

In this, I also wondered where the blog was headed.

I missed blogging.

I began my new position at the end of September and it took me until this month to get caught up on my bills.  As of today, I am no longer behind in my payments. The new position covers my monthly expenses will a little left over to enjoy a nice dinner out with friends once a week.

Solstice and the holidays are upon us.  This year, maybe due to the stress of the last 12 months, I've relished this season.  December came and I immediately put my little feather tree in my painting studio. A week later, I had the wonderful smell of evergreen in my living room with my green tree.

I don't know what next year holds but there has been a building excitement deep within me.  I sense changes.

Life is an adventure, isn't it?
