EDIT: Updating is hard to do… Most of this is still true today as the day I wrote it…05/27/2012
As I have become more involved in this little community, I figured I would write a proper “About Me” section.
I’m pretty easy to figure out. I don’t hide alot and I tend to be an open book.
Music is a huge part of my life. I will often drive hours out of my way to see a show.
Art is who I am. The creative process, the inspiration, that first brushstroke when the paint hits the canvas: I live for art. I thrive on creativity and the beauty of ideas made manifest.
Photography has recently become a passion of mine. I rarely go anywhere without my trusty little camera. The camera has replaced the once ever present sketch book and charcoals. The camera is by far the cleaner and more manageable choice. If you would love to see some of my pictures…..
I have a myspace page.. www.myspace.com/glassowater feel free to check it out, I have tons of folders of the bands I love and the people in my life…and if you feel so inclined, add me…:) EDIT: I don’t really use Myspace anymore. Like most people, I’m on Facebook, but this page is still available with tons of band pictures because I have been too lazy to move the pics or delete the account. 🙂
I love my little circle of friends. They all challenge and amaze me on a daily basis, bringing me more joy than I have ever known before in my life.
I love to cook. Yup, I admit it. Love love love going shopping, creating a menu and then just totally rocking out in the kitchen…come over sometime! I love to cook for friends…:)
Writing has come to me, rather painfully: first, it was a reaction to a bad breakup. I had never broken up with someone before. I was usually the one being dumped. But when I broke up with my girlfriend of three years, I was devastated. So much effort went into that, only to have to admit defeat and end it. I was drained emotionally and physically and a good friend suggested writing it out. From there, I began blogging, usually about silly things in my life…then my sister passed away and writing suddenly became very important to me. The need to work through my chaotic little thoughts and express what was in me in a new way was overpowering and the result is this blog.
Sometimes silly and trivial, sometimes serious and once in awhile, I try to be poetic, I hope you enjoy seeing inside my head.
