happy csusmiversary to me!

this marks the last day i worked for csusm four years ago. this is a particularly great anniversary for me, because it means i've been here as long as i was there. and i'm SO glad to be here! i still feel like i haven't been here very long. there's so much more for me here to discover and do, whereas i was desperate to leave csusm & san diego after two years.

to celebrate i picked up my art from the emergence show, made plans for a blue moon event w/ serena, went grocery shopping at new seasons and saw someone i haven't seen in a couple of years, went to the plant nursery and strapped 3 big trellises to trixie, went to the bike gallery to compare a few bikes (more on that later), took upstairs jennifer out to dinner to celebrate her new job (very fitting, since she helped me leave san diego), gassed & washed trixie. i'll have a delicious lemon creme tartlet w/ strawberries & mint later. tomorrow night i have a studio event, saturday i have another studio event and will begin working on a theatre production.

this comes at just the right time, because portland's entering its most enchanting time of year: the days are warm and sunny, the breeze is cool and gentle, the sky is blue and wide, the flowers cheerful & strong. i've been here long enough to anticipate the growing cycles. i know the traffic patterns and the shortcuts. i learned the stars here. i have people i love here and who love me back. i like to walk, bike & make delicious things. i am making things i love & finding the kind, generous people who want them.

but i am still trying to learn how to balance work and play. i just left a couple of groups & volunteer positions, and i decided not to offer any events at the studio in july & august. so in some ways, the csusmiversary marks the start of my "summer vacation," when i hope to be able to rest, dream, explore & play.

still to come: the californiaversary & the portlandiversary!

Congratulations, and congratulations, and congratulations! One of the best decisions you ever made.

(That, and wearing a helmet. ;-) )
