What a beautiful day....




I am so happy to have lovely day today. Met my new coussin Ruby today and caught up with Reza and Gina and I introduced them to Rachel.
Got some gas and stumbled upon this Smile Auto Body place. I really don't know anybody that would smile to get auto body work done..
And saw a very inspiring show @ the troubador, cocorosie with Miss Rach.
I would have to say not a shabby day at all. It is nice to be thankful to be alive.

A mouse in my house..


Or maybe it was a rat... All I know is that I have the lovely experience of having it in my presence twice in my house. It is one thing to see a rodent in your everyday life out on the street. It is another having it in your bed and climbing your curtains. I do not consider myself queemish. But i surely, screamed when I saw that Flash had brought the rat in again. It was climbing my curtains and then made a dash for the heater. I tried to see if I could find him there.. but it escaped my grasp being in the crawl space of the wall and my floor. My neighbor Griffee and I turned on the heater 8 hrs later to see if he was there. But he seemed to have escaped heater and found his way out into one of our garages.
But we were wrong..
.. 2 AM rachel sits up in bed and yelps. What is wrong Rach? Nico just dropped something on me and it ran over me...
I realize that he is still in our house. The cats are taking corners in my room and passing the mouse back and forth. I build a bridge towards the bathroom out of a painting and several suitcases I have ... oh the joys.
I trapped Nico and the mouse into the bathroom. I found a trash can and my ministry- with sympathy LP. Trapped that rat and released him.
The next day I was off to hike and there was this mouse next to the curb. He looked like he was meditating or dying... I wasn't sure. Is this the animal that was in my house.. I never will be sure. Poor little mouse....

Lovely Views from Venice




Another week flies by. It is amazing how fast life goes.
Working two days a week now. I am still waiting to hear about the Boys and Girls Club. I'm crossing my fingers and toes that I get it.
It looks like my days at the Hand Prop Room are about to be numbered. They want to hire someone full time. I love working there but I am not sure that I can snuff it 5 days a week. I know you all think that I am crazy. But I am just not cut out to sit at a desk 5 days a week. It makes me crazy, it makes me depressed and it drives me to drink. So I opted to not do it.

Living next to Venice Blvd and working on it.. you see scenes like the one here... the beauty in the decrepitness.

I keep telling myself that I want to work for myself. So maybe I should just go for it. I still want to work with the kids... we will see I have a feeling everything will work out. I gotta keep the faith.

Rach and I have been encouraging one another to make artwork by having to finish a piece of art each week, these are my pieces of the week..

Tomorrow Rach and I are off to have an adventure in the Santa Monica Mountains. I can't wait... I am sure tales will be in store. Till then, may peace be with you.
