It's time.

Sorry I have been a little absent this week. I have been busy doing a lot of different things, primarily teaching, making my work and doing a lot of thinking.

Today marks my first month in Seattle. 30 days of a new phase in my life. It's been a time of healing and of clarity. It has allowed me to make very difficult changes in my life, and to let go of fragments (of my heart, of my life) even when it is painful to do so. I've been struggling to get through every present day, and I miss the times when tomorrow was part of my present day. I am scared most of the time that perhaps I'm only running away,  but I won't know that until I come back to New York. In the mean time, I am working hard on rebuilding my life and I hope to be ready to live it again soon.

I've been much healthier physically lately, too. I run 3 miles every morning, ride my bike for 2 miles (steep up hill), and I eat very healthy. I go to sleep earlier, wake up earlier and have already lost 8 pounds. I feel much healthier and exercise allows me release anger and frustration in a healthy way.

While I prepare some new images to post, I leave you with a vintage photo of boy scouts that I really love, from shorpy.com
