I feel like so many of my blog posts begin with "OMG I've been so busy sorry I haven't posted for so long!" And here I am again. I HAVE been so frickin' busy, mostly with work-related stuff! I come to Hawai'i and suddenly my illlustration/jewelry/art career is on this big upswing -- are these two things connected? Really hard to tell! I mean, I have made a lot of effort finding local stores to sell my jewelry, and that's been successful, but I've also been getting more stores and orders from elsewhere, and illustration jobs, etc. It almost feels like since I've come to Hawai'i all these obstacles have vanished from my life, and I feel like there may be a connection in a more sort of vague spiritual Buddhist kind of way, like, I'm doing the right thing for myself by coming to this place, and now I'm really getting on the right path and things are going well, but who knows. I don't even know if I believe in that kind of thing. But anyway, it's all very exciting.
So, of course now I've gotten to this point where I have so much to say I put off posting because it will take too much time to discuss it all! So I guess I'm just going to have to break it up into a few posts.
I miss you all SO much. But the more time we spend here the more I feel like "now WHY was it exactly I felt I needed to go back to the bay area?" However, we ARE coming back, we just got our tickets for July 2 (which made me feel a little melancholy) and I can't WAIT to see you all. I'm sure once I return I will be so happy to be there ... I think I'm missing it less because I know I AM coming back. Anyway, ALOHA!
