just thinking about things

I'm bugged that I've been unmotivated to write anything lately. Like most people, I have this need to express myself, and if my expression gets stuffed up inside, I get bugged.

Last night I was at my friend Nikki's, and she showed me her portfolio filled with all sorts of artistic & creative expression - graphic design, furniture design, photography, sketches, paintings. You name it, she's probably done it. It was interesting and personal and it spoke of great inner depth; plus she's just freakin' talented. Anyway, it really inspired me to find a new way to express myself when I can't find the words.

That's the problem with most forms of communication. If I want anyone to get me, I have to TALK. And use WORDS. Or sign language.

I think it's time to start painting.

Rose, if you're interested in creative writing, you should do NaNoWriMo with Tom and I this November. Check it out at www.nanowrimo.org.

i want to be a painter. actually, gus gave me a very special easter basket. it was full of painting supplies. i now have more painting brushes and colors than i know what to do with. i also have 3 blank canvasas staring me in the face every morning, just waiting to be painted on, and then painted over again because i probably won't like what i paint the first time...seeing as how i have never actually painted before. i miss you rose!
