i’ve been absent from the computer for the past five days. last week thursday my family received the news that my great uncle jim had passed away. he’d been fighting a hard battle after suffering a stroke this past april. i was between buffalo these past few days going to the wake, seeing family, and attending the funeral this afternoon. uncle jim was a phenomenal man. without him being in this world, living the life that he did, being the marine that he was, our american and world history could be different if it weren’t for this man. Having received four purple hearts in his career, one which he declined, being a personal guard for President Truman, and serving in war, each and everyone’s life could be different. it’s amazing to think about how everyone’s actions shape our lives and if they never existed, how much different our world really could be. Rest in peace you incredible man. Tigger lovers always.

It makes me happy when people call me ‘mermaid’ now. The amount of ‘hey mermaids’ i get a week just really surprises me. Now if only I could get that kind of following with my artwork. Tomorrow I need to take some time and catch up in the fashion world. It’s work, but it’s a nice kind of work to be blogging what’s going on in different publications during the week. Sometimes I wish I had the time though to be able to have enough work to blog about at least five times a day. Someday.
On the bright side, I talked to my brother’s girlfriend today about making me a fitness plan. When I was consistently at the gym I felt great, but I wasn’t seeing much improvement. With doing pilates now, I definitely feel more strength, but I don’t feel like I’m toning up at all. This girl already told me she plans to kill me in four weeks. Fingers crossed I actually see a difference this time!
