rough start to 2016

I must say 2016 hasn’t gotten off to a great start. There have been some celebrity deaths, and while that may seem shallow, their passing seems to have left a void for many people, as if a piece of them or their childhood/adolescence has also taken a hit.

It’s what happens. People die. Everyday. But knowing that doesn’t make the reality any easier to bear.

For me, I was surprised, shocked, and saddened by these deaths. For one reason, they were not elderly, all only in their 60s. For another reason, these are people whose work I regularly listened to/read/viewed. May they rest in peace.

David Bowie
Alan Rickman
Francisco X. Alarcon (maybe not a celebrity, but a wonderful poet)
Glenn Frey
(there are others who have passed, but these are the ones that truly moved me)

And if that wasn’t all, my own personal realm took a hit a couple weeks ago when one of the warned-of El Nino storms came and flooded out Han’s studio. We moved everything out and can no longer use that space as there’s a chance it will happen again.

The promising news is that it seems Han has struck a partnership with another studio where he will be able to work and really open up his potential client base. I’ll keep you posted.

Of course these events also call into question our living situation. We have this extra space that we can no longer use. We live in a house that no longer needs to contain a business.  We are seriously considering moving when our lease is up to a place that’s more affordable but still with the space we need.

Lots to think about.

In other, lighter news: I got my hair cut today. Enjoy this pic.
