"I look upon time as no more than an idea, and I consider eternity as another possibility." -Mary Oliver
I woke up thinking about time. Realizing that, in the past 10 years since I moved back to California, the biggest and most exciting thing I did was fall in love for the first time in my life. It was a big love. Unlike anything I've felt before and unlike anything I will probably ever feel again.
I was probably too in love if that's possible. So enveloped in it that I maybe lost myself a little in it. It felt right to me. I found a guy who loved me and who I loved right back. I didn't need to look any further. It was that simple for me. I was happy. I was even lucky enough to travel to Europe with him over the summer. Iceland was one of the places we went, and if a place can be your soulmate, then Iceland is mine. We went looking for witches in the Westfjords. We found waterfalls and hot springs and jumped into cold oceans, and finished off a huge tub of chunky peanut butter while driving through the surreal beauty of the wilderness of Iceland, Little Dragon blasting on the stereo of the dark blue, borrowed little truck we were driving.
Now I'm starting to think of what I want to accomplish in the next 10 years. What I want to change.
All I know for sure right now is that I want to start a wearable art clothing business. To nurture it and have it grow. I know this experience will be full of learning curves, but that's okay. Everything is. I have the patience for it. Sometimes the idea of this endeavor scares me. Intimidates me. I know it will take an immense amount of hard work. This is also okay with me. I like working hard. It's an exciting goal to have, that's for sure. We'll see what happens.
