Back to work

So, the cruise was great. Amazing places, amazing sun; I had a blast.

I also made some advancements in a lot of areas, I rarely drank, I didn't smoke, and I got up at 6:30 for 3 days and exercised. I also got to see a lot of art, including some etchings by Rembrandt and Picasso. Bought some art and won some art as well!!

Emile Bellet lithograph I bought
(along with 2 other pieces by Bellet as well)
Marcus Glenn seriolithograph(?) I won
(This guy did the art for the 2013 Grammy's)


I can't wait to get all 4 pieces in the mail. It's going to be amazing having these incredible pieces in my house. Going to the art lectures and seeing the art of the greats made me feel...something like being homesick. But homesick for a place I've never been. I'm not trying to be deep or anything, but maybe I just enjoyed being around people who were so passionate about all kinds of art, and seeing the work of masters.

And I feel great (besides the sunburn I got). I'm rejuvenated, encouraged, and excited to continue working hard and feeling better.  I want to paint, get back on schedule to run a marathon next year, and maybe, just possibly, even date a little. (If the guy is worth my time...I refuse to make the same mistakes again)

And it's great that Boston has warmed up a little...I can get back outside and enjoy everything, instead of hurrying from point A to B as fast as possible. I love this city. I don't know how much longer I'll be here, but I have to enjoy it as much as I can for as long as I can.

And I want to buy a bed and a mattress within 6 months. Random, but hey, if I'm putting up art on my walls I think I should be sleeping on something better than a 15 year-old futon.
