  • Mood:


this is me staying up late for my birthday. it seems that in my old age I can no longer bound out of bed and into clothes and out the door in ten minutes and neither can I come home put on my pajamas and hop directly into bed either. mind and body are slower to wind and unwind than they once were.

the gathering of a small group of friends was extremely pleasant and a nice way to end an extremely pleasant day. the only thing I regret is that this being a well-into-my-forties birthday the day went by far too quickly. I barely got done everything on my list and I'm not even sure I managed to shave my head evenly but in the dark it is hard to tell. I will take a good look at it in the morning.

two more paintings underway. I haven't finished one yet. it is even easier to start a drawing or a painting than it is to start a book. which means I am going to have to find places for unfinished artwork here very soon. well many of my drawings end up looking good half finished anyway. don't know if paintings will follow suit. so far there's not a one that is in a state that I like. but the nice thing about acrylic paint and montage is that you can just keep sticking things on the canvas until it's five inches thick and each layer can cover the last if you want it to.

well this is it. I'm falling asleep so should move the site of operations up onto the futon. thanks for all the birthday wishes. we will see if I can remember all year just how old I am. hell, we'll see if I remember all year what year it is.

nighty night.
