start your machines in the morning: another gem from my mother.
i am, indeed, alive.
(you get a lot of these types of messages from me, don't you.)
i had a week of 11 auditions.
shavs stayed with me for a week.
sussy and evie are here now.
my interweb was down for a solid 4 days.
i've dated my face off (to *many* epically terrible-oh, you'll hear about it-ends).
i hit 3 tribeca film festival premiers.
and my apartment sold yesterday...
which means, all my brain power is now devoted to finding a new home and covering up my red splotchy cried out face...
ooooh, were i only a rapper so i could wear sunglasses indoors... at night (ipt. subsy).
most days, i wish i could do as stellie likes to do in the picture above... bury myself in pillows and hope it all works out when i wake....
but, to be honest, i've been SO grateful for the distractions. all of them.
my mom has this amazing housekeeping (life) theory.
always start your machines in the morning.
when she wakes, she makes her bed, empties the dishwasher and prepares it for the breakfast dishes, starts a fresh load of laundry and waters the plants...
most of this is accomplished before or right after her 8 am walking group...
oh yeah.. then she showers
(i don't want to hear it from you non-bathers... take a shower! it makes you feel like a new person).
she gets up and keeps it moving.
she's like a little ball of momentum, constantly moving, constantly creating space for things to happen..
and things do... she's always on the go.
so i'm trying it.
i'm getting up early and i'm working out (when nic isn't in town..) and i'm moving... i'm doing my work, i'm spinning my wheels and i'm watching as things just fill my day in a pretty cool way...
now, nothing has worked out quite yet.... but at least i'm out of bed and i'm moving....
now that the apartment has sold and i have a definite move date, i'm a little more at peace with the gap.
move on to where i'm meant to be...
start your machines...
here we go!
