Wow! Been a month since I posted…

June 19, 2011

I think I’ve just been to busy with LIFE. But I love to blog. The above is my favorite Cardigans song, or at least it’s up there…

I met a man my friend played *cupid* with us yesterday. I haven’t had zits on my face for over 15 years, and now my right cheek is full of ’em. And my left cheek has a HUGE bruise from my last dentist visit (he pinched my cheek way too hard while giving me the Novocaine injection.

So I told him in advance b/4 his visit that I had zits and a bruise on my face. Hey…if he’s gonna let that affect his feelings about me who needs him, right?

He was supposed to meet me at 1:00 p.m. and we were to eat lunch at a restaurant. Well, as it turns out, it took him two hours to travel 20 miles. The 405 was shut down and for some weird reason the traffic spilled out on the 101. I don’t get that AT ALL because they run north south and east west, it seems to make NO sense. So he was in stop and go traffic for hours, poor guy. I revised my plans, went with my best hunches and intuition, and fixed us lunch in my place. Something I would normally NEVER do. But it turned out fine. He was a true gentlemen, helping me put up my water and do some other tasks I can’t accomplish because of my health limitations. We had a lunch of enchiladas, salad consisting of romaine lettuce, kalamada olives, capers, red onions, green onions, cilantro, and avocado (I think that was everything); corn on the cob, rice, and beans. He was ravenous and ate everything. We also had white coconut creme tea (everything was organic, except the guac we dipped our chips in).

We share a lot of common interests. He has the same political and theological beliefs as I do. I think the main difference between us is I don’t get into astrology and numerology. But who cares, right? It doesn’t matter. He’s an artist too, and his work is absolutely superb. He devised this system of pulleys and a trampoline like structure to pour the paint onto canvases. He described how he invented this system – I guess another artist in the 50’s came up with something similar – but at the time he didn’t know about the other artist who did this. The work is very beautiful. I want to try to introduce him to some peeps who might help out his career.

There was definitely chemistry between us. And he doesn’t seem to mind that I have EDS and “shut the world out” in pain around 4-5 p.m. every day. Most men would run so fast in the other direction you wouldn’t have time to breath. I think his admiration for my art (and perhaps a few other things, ahem) overrides my health limitations. He lives pretty far away, he was visiting LA for his father (for this father’s day – happy FD, all you father’s out there) so he squeezed in a visit with me. We listened to music and he saw my light box work and other works. He in particular likes my self portraits. I will post his fav one at the end of this post. I’m always surprised by which works people like or dislike. He was pretty blunt with the art that did ‘nothing’ for him vs. the pieces he liked. He has a thing for the color blue (I do too). Most men seem to like blue and orange. I wonder which colors most women like? Blue was my fav color growing up but now I’m all over the map…I like them all. But I might not care for the new piece I’m doing, it looks like it might be a giant belly flop (it has a pale yellow background. I guess we all have to have our occasional belly-flops, right?

Anyhow I hope to hear from him soon. Wish me luck, right? I’ve been alone for a little over three years now. And I’m lonely! Most of the time okay, but occ. just miss that human touch…

Here’s his favorite self portrait, On and Off with a Tendency toward On…
