self / self

Even though this weekend was not the holiday weekend I had planned, I guess it turned out OK. The thing I was most excited about was meeting a blogger friend in Birmingham for the first time and going on a photo adventure together - that failed and sort of threw my whole weekend off-kilter. I guess I shouldn't put so much weight on any one thing to make a weekend. It's not that it was all bad - it wasn't really. I had a nice visit with a favorite cousin and talked about painting; I enjoyed time reading a new book in my hammock; I did some needed cleaning and felt good about that; I drove to Watkinsville to a pottery show and then got an ice cream cone and explore the little town by myself; I went on a pleasant walk with Evee and watched her splash in the creek; I went out to eat with a friend at a quaint little cafe and enjoyed the night air; and most importantly I started a new painting. It's just that I was out of sorts off and on all weekend. Discontented for a number of reasons really... and I don't like that feeling. / we're starting film now. we all went downtown as a class and shot... which was alright i guess. there just wasn't much out to take pictures of since it was 8am. i passed a cool abandoned place when i was coming back from jefferson the other day. i want to shoot there for the first requirement in our next set of assignments. i'll share more later.

Hope you are feeling much better now.
