So, here I sit... Back in Seattle after such a relaxing trip to my family's cabin on Raquette Lake. It was more difficult this time to leave than it has been up to this point. At least I was able to see everyone in my family - that was a blessing in itself. My nephew is getting so big now. I just feel like I'm missing out on something very special being 3000 miles away. A kid is only a kid for so long, you know?
I'm teaching a lesson today. We're focusing on landscape right now - anything to break her of suns and moons and stars (that's all she feels confident doing right now, at 13). So, we both did a landscape over the past two weeks, and I think we'll do one more before moving on to something else... still lifes maybe? :) Susan likes those.
We found a church here in Shoreline... It feels good to be back into that routine, I didn't realize how much of an impact it has on my life... and, for the first time it was a conscious decision to go...just for ME. Not out of guilt, not out of fear. Just out of curiosity. And, the church we found is awesome. It's just awesome. There's a full band - brass section, hand-percussionist, drumset, electric bass... you name it, it's there. It's pretty darn cool, if I do say so myself. Ok, enough of the church babble.
I'm extremely jet-lagged, my body is on some weird schedule, since it never totally conformed to East Coast time, and has yet to get back to West Coast time - it doesn't know what's going on. What a weird feeling. But, it could be worse, I guess. C, Becky, some other friends, and I are going to see some Qawwali music tonight. It should be really cool - It's Pakistani spiritual music (pretty meditational, I think)... Check it out - cool music.
I'd better go shower. The day's wearing on.
Oh, before I forget - I saw what you posted on your site, and I don't think it's cool. It's been two and a half years - get over it, and please respect our privacy. Thanks.
