I looked in the mirror yesterday morning and was perplexed when I saw these little red “balls” on my cheeks. Seriously, I was really confused. Was I having an allergic reaction to something?

It turns out, my cheeks had GOTTEN A LITTLE SUN the day before.

Through a flurry of last minute emails and phone calls, I had ended up meeting a few friends on Saturday afternoon. We sat outside — in the SUNSHINE in Seattle — for a few hours and chatted.

Did you get that? SUN? In Seattle?

It does happen.

We had planned, these friends and I, to work in our respective journals. In the end not much drawing got done. (Oh well!) I had forgotten my sketchbook at work, and so only had an oldish writing notebook which I had apparently been using to prepare for the Silly 3 class last December. Here are some things I had written down:

“Yesterday, today, tomorrow. (But mostly tomorrow.)”

“I need to do computer work but I left my cord at home and so will be running out of juice in just 29%.”

“Denial is a powerful tool, if used correctly.”

“Opportunities knock, and I say, “Go away!”

“Writing is meditation for me. As soon as I sit down to write, my mind goes completely blank.”

Heh. heh.

Have a great day, everyone!
