Taking Me Back Down the Road…

It’s been quite some time since I’ve done a Music Monday. So not only are you getting a post after a very sporadic year of posting thus far, you’re also getting some tunes, courtesy of one of, if not my all time favorite front men. The incomparable, Robert Plant, singing a tune of lust and my neighboring 29 Palms.

5 Months Later

Back in October or so I began the process of trying to sort my website after some really cool people took over parts of it to sell male performance enhancing drugs. There was a lot of back and forth, a lot of money spent and a lot of bumps in the road. It looked to have been fixed at the end of January, but alas more problems came. So I took a bit of a hands off stance, until I knew that things were working normally. I think today might be that day. Gone is my splash page / click through, I’m all up to date with the current ssl security that is required and I’m free (fingers crossed) to get things going again here.

I’ve made quite a few new piecess that I haven’t posted here or anywhere really, so those will be coming soon, along with the other randomness that you typically find around these parts. My life is a bit all over the place right now as I do what we like to call, the desert hustle, around these parts. Aka, juggling multiple income sources. This is nothing new to me, as jewelry has never really been my only source of income, however much I wish it could be.

Anyways, there’s big things on the horizon and I’m trying my best to manage it all, but it’s my hope to get back into things here and for real this time.

Snow Day!

I woke up this morning and there was a particular silence. A silence that only happens when it snows. I grew up in the mountains above where I live now and previously lived in the sierra, so I was familiar with the sound or lack there of. Only in the desert it’s at a whole other. It’s so quiet that it’s almost deafening. Anyway, I jumped out of bed and peaked out the window to confirm, then threw some clothes on and went out.

It’s a very rare occasion that we get snow at this elevation and if you’ve never seen snow in the desert, it’s magical. I personally think snow is quite wonderful but when it snows here it’s something else. As I started walking, it began to fall, heavily and I only became more excited. I smiled like I haven’t in a while, cried even and did a few grand jetés. It was glorious!

Unfortunately it melted soon aftertastes stopped, but I’m holding tightly to the special moment in time.

How I Like To Be

Dirty hands = a happy heart.

We’ve Landed

Or I have, or the website has. Whatever, the migration process seems to be done. Hours spent on the phone, massive frustration and annoyance, but hopefully it’ll keep things sorted.

Whilst on hold this last time and verifying my site still didn’t look like that of a viagra dealer, I came across my old tumblr account. I think I’d forgotten that it was still sitting out in the ether. I’m glad it is though. I love imagery, in case you haven’t noticed and it was always fun piecing together little pieces of inspiration that somehow all seem to work together. It’s like taking a peak inside a corner of a persons brain. My brain in this case. I’d really like to live in this corner, full time.

Here’s some snippets…
