Moving to White Salmon, Washington!

Life is crazy. It can pick you up and shake you and throw you back down. It doesn't even stop to ask you if you are okay. I have always been a tough cookie, because I did not have it easy as a kid, Because of that, I have kind of built my adult life up as a sort of cost-effective creative paradise. I somehow got really lucky to have almost everything I wanted in life by the time I was 30. I have had hardships, but it has been so long since I have known real grief. I am now grieving my move to White Salmon and going through personal family grieving as well. I am excited about moving to a new beautiful area. I know that I will come to love living in the mountains, but I know I will yearn for sand and surfl. I realize that life wants to wake me up and make me appreciate everything that I have while I have it. Nothing lasts forever. I hope this feeling of appreciation lasts forever. The big move happns in two weeks. I can't believe how much stuff I have left to do. I am writing this blog entry because I am procrastinating on doing something else. I know that moving is full of opportunities, I used to be addicted to those new opportunities. Now, I am patient, I like quiet, I like solitude, I like myself. My new studio will be in a town setting, no view, but will be on a ground floor. No more skinny staircase. I'm actually most excited to have a bathroom near my studio! Keeping a check on those silver linings!
