So the 'Coffee Project' is well underway; I now have my husband enlisted as a volunteer researcher/idea developer in the project. Its pretty exciting, considering what happened at the start of the fourth of July weekend.

What the hell is this you ask? Well, its been seven years for the two of us, and I felt stifled in my creativity, and I also felt like I was suffocating him a bit with his creativity. I felt we deserved time to pursue our creative interests, and I also felt that we needed the chance to miss each other. I wanted to remember what it was like when we first got together. Lets just chalk it up to too many years of 'yea, that's a good idea', but not enough of ever getting around to doing any of it. So now I have a husband who is positively delighted to participate in the coffee project and to have these in-depth discussions of art, the process, coffee, wine, anything. Damn, WE TALK! Having actual discussions!!! I LOVE IT!!! This is the husband/partner/lover that I have been missing! By the way, I am not moving out. We are working to make it work.

Enough about that; did you know that the first coffeeshop was called Kiva Hahn? Coffee was first discovered by goats (some accounts its sheep) and their herders. The religious used to use it to keep them awake at night for evening prayers.

I have lots of ideas for different paintings/drawings/multimedia projects; so many that I am having trouble getting my thoughts organized enough to know where to start and how I want things to look. I am thinking that I want to use the coffee project as a base for my portfolio to submit for admission to MIAD next year. That is a new goal, after completing the coffee project, to apply for a scholarship to attend school there.

Not to get too far ahead of myself, but its time to start getting my head out of the clouds, and back to the canvas.....
