I've had the good fortune of living in both Austin, Texas AND Portland, Oregon. Both as an adult.
And both places (as demonstrated above) like to 'keep it weird'.
I guess they succeed, too....I mean, I come from pretty weird stock, so I'm not the best judge! Fact is, both cities are the cream of the crop as far as I'm concerned. Don't trust anyone who says otherwise. They're up to something.
This dawned on me last week, though:
I spent the majority of my adult years in Austin. (Woo!) But as of 10/03/14, that will change when Portland inches past Austin in the 'years resided' category! Now THAT'S weird!
It feels a bit like a break up, Austin. (But not one that stings TOO bad because I've been cheating for a while now!) Let's be friends.
I've worked on a ton of new art all month. I'll start rolling it out in September...it's going to be a good Fall (y'all)!
This week I'm sharing a ditty that relates to
1. embracing the weird, and
2. moving FORWARD without fear.
FAST FORWARD: August 2014
Then I heard (in my own voice), "It doesn't matter...but you've gotta own it, girl!"
Now I present to you...12 years in the making:
