“somebody that could come and make it right…”

I’ve painted three times throughout the duration of my stay up here in Colorado.  For some reason I hadn’t thought to share them through WordPress… I guess I figured most everyone would see them on Facebook.  How funny… I didn’t eve tweet them.  Actually, I may have tweeted one… not sure.  Here they are though… all three, for your viewing pleasure.

My friend Ruby and I decided to dress up and look for a wedding to crash as a “photographer and writer” covering the wedding.  In a small town, how many venues could there possibly be?  Plus we got tipped off that there would be a wedding in the area that weekend.  I know, it sounds wrong and unethical or something, but in a small town, what else is there to do?

Anyway, our evening didn’t turn out as we planned.  Our third stop ended up being our last.  We visited a historic hotel and decided we would have our very own photo shoot there.  Afterwards we were hungry and went to have Chinese.   No wedding was ever found by the “photographer and writer.”  Anywho, here are some shots…

Just like the Blue October Album.  This is completely different though…


una simple historia es lo que vendo
en las calles olvidadas de un tiempo
en el cual yo te quise

a simple history is what i sell
in the forgotten streets of a time
when i wanted you

I have valuable life lessons to share…

For example, before I came to Colorado, my then killer Alfredo sauce consisted of me going to the store and buying the most interesting jar of Alfredo sauce I could find so that all I had to do was just add it to my pasta.  It was the least amount of work possible.  Now, I can make an amazing Alfredo sauce from scratch.

It’s one of the many things I’ve learned up here in Colorado.  I’ll give you more examples, ‘don’t bring soda, bring wine to a dinner party’ or ‘just because it’s a small turtle, don’t think you can easily commit to caring for it long term’ (yes, that is something to be discussed with my therapist) or ‘yes, there is, in fact, surfing in the Colorado mountains!’  They’re  just small life lessons one gets to know while living outside one’s comfort zone.

As comfortable as I had been, living with my two really cool roomies, I decided to make another move.  Don’t get me wrong, I love their place.  It’s situated just so that the golf course is their back yard… *smirk* (pretentious much??? not really.  it’s a mini golf course).  Anyway, with the help of some friends I came across a huge, old, historic house.  I will be renting a room here.  It’s got it’s own entrance, it’s own character, and now, it’s very own ME!  I’m excited.  I will now be living near the heart of this little town. . . which is about five minutes from where I live now, but still.  It’s about two blocks from downtown Glenwood Springs.

I guess we’ll see what new life lessons I learn in that new little place…

I’ll have more valuable life lessons to share…

‘Always have a spare key’

‘Always carry a snack’

‘Don’t be afraid to use condiments’




i wanna paint…

I’ve been wanting to paint recently.  However, since my current living situation is not private and I’d hate to make a mess at Josh and Karen’s (the couple I’m staying with) place, I’ve been holding back.  I suppose I can wait till I either move out or I find an old tarp or old blanket that I can use as a “spill spot” in case I get a little too ambitious with my painting.  Anyway, since I’ve not been able to paint, and I have finally finished all my wedding editing (about time!!!), I decided to go out into one of the surrounding towns to get some shots of the surrounding beauties.  Check ’em out…
