I have been down for the count for the past few days, parked on the couch and sick for the first time in four years. I am not quite 100% yet, but on the mend, working through a mellow to do list and easing back into work today. I will continue to take it easy, but as soon as I feel totally recovered my first order of business needs to be exercise, as almost every meal I've had since Saturday has had the word cheese in it - grilled cheese, mac & cheese, cheese crackers. Ah, how nice it is to revert back to my eight-year old self now and then, camped out vertically with my favorite pillow, blanket, DVDs and crossword puzzles, able to hide from the world, if only for a few days.
I uploaded the latest photos of my current mannequin projects. I now have three in the works: May Sarton, Theopa Beets and India. I also received some exciting news last week - one of my essays will be published in next month's Skirt! magazine. My first published, paid piece. It is a milestone for me, and I am proud to be making my start in the writing world in such a colorful, inspiring publication.
