      Ok, so this year for me, on a personal note, has been one of great change within the concentric circles of this life I call my own. I left my home in Venice Beach, where I have lived and loved for around six years. Venice Beach is in my life's journey, a symbol of immense accomplishment; a place that I had really come into my own. It has this energy that just makes you feel like you are flying high- like a kite :) Anyway, so after five amazing years, my life partner Tim and I decided to take our relationship to the next level and move in together. Tim resides in Century City, which those of you who know LA map wise, is about five miles east of Venice Beach. Really not that far in terms of distance, but far enough to not feel like the beach... I digress...


  So 2016 has just been so full of changes for me ;both personally and outside of me in the world I call home, that I am at this point where I am already  remeniscing !! (its only been like 3 months! Lol). But thats the kind of year it's been. It's funny, because I really would attribute Venice Beach as being the catalyst to my flowering as an artist. Now as I move forward in my life, and journey onward to new territories(both physically and artisically), I must keep Venice beach in my heart and take it with me. Hmmmmmm, you know what I need to do? Bring a little jar down to the water and fill it with the sand of VB; then I literally can bring it with me everywhere I go!!!
