pride. patience.

Sunday was Pride in New York City. We danced down streets and drank pitchers of margaritas on hotel rooftops, surrounded by rainbows and love.

I’m settling into my new situation of working remotely. Considering my office is a ten minute walk from my writing desk at home, and it’s in one of the most beautiful buildings in town – with a lovely set of fellow Writers; I don’t particularly mind attending.

That said, I like having my own schedule. Sometimes I’m not popping 9 to 5, usually I’m at my brightest around 6am. It will be nice to take a break of working in unideal timeframe. Continue reading

d-day… detox… movemovemove…

Today is d-day blog family, I think. Word on the street is I find out if I have a fully sick job today. I’m about to step out the door to work… perhaps I’ll know more tomorrow.

Today is also a friend’s birthday which means dancing is likely and there will probably be pints of delicious pear cider and giggles all around. The small group of Melbourne Artists who I roll with color my world in such wonderful ways. Continue reading
