My birthday.

It is my birthday today, and I wanted to thank all of you wonderful darlings for reading my blog, chatting with me on Twitter, inspiring me with yor art and your words, and supporting me in times when such things were needed.

I am writing this post from my brand new, shiny and blue, beautiful laptop! It was a very generous gift from my family and now I have something to write my essays on in Chicago. On top of that, they threw me a big BBQ party yesterday and I had such a lovely time with all of my Toronto friends and family who have known me since I was a wee little baby.

New laptop? Ooo. Shiny? Ooo. Blue? Ooo.

Uni study has only just introduced me to Richter, but he has quickly become a painter I admire. Especially for his technical brilliance with photo-realist oil painting. His abstract work is lovely, too.
I borrowed a book on him today, whilst haunting the library! Must scan, soon.

I haven't felt compelled to write in the last couple of months, which has been heart-wrenchingly difficult for me to deal with. I know you are able to empathise with this subject of pain on some level.
I must coax myself to write more, as soon as possible.
I hope you're well &...

I love you.
