Today I took myself out for a nice lunch hoping it might improve my mood after the stupid stupid freeze. I had a coconut shrimp curry at Da Gama, which was very good, but I still overall felt rather meh. Then my friend texted in the evening and we went on a long walk in the neighborhood which did me a lot of good. She reminded me that some good things did happen this year, like getting my art into the Tremont House hotel, and that next year I’m going to the carousel convention among other things. She also suggested I might do a visualization exercise, so here it is. I cut up the magazine another friend brought me from Paris in order to make this collage. I like it very much, so I hung it up in my room. Then I started the complicated task of cleaning my house, something that was rudely interrupted by the stupid stupid freeze.
