My dog has leukemia. We've been told she has about two weeks left, but the second week will be painful, so we're putting her down next Friday before she starts getting uncomfortable. Nobody in my house has been able to stop crying for the last week. My aunt said, "I know it's sad, but it's only a dog".

She's not only a dog. She's nicer than any person I've ever met. She's like my baby sister, except that we've never had a fight, she's never annoyed me or stolen my clothes and she has loved me unconditionally for more than ten years. My sister's love is pretty conditional, I think.

It's not like I'm a crazy dog person. I don't have sweaters with spaniels embroidered on them, or magnets with dogs and cute sayings on them. It's just that Lizzie has been my best friend for almost half my life.

It's actually storming outside! My whole apartment is rattling and the rain is driving on the windows! It's awesome!

Also: HOW HAVE I LIVED THIS LONG WITHOUT HAVING AN E.L.O. OBSESSION?

Seriously. "Jungle" is maybe the best song ever. Particularly for 2:00 AM printmaking dance sessions.

It's 2:30 in the morning, and I just got home from the studio. Same thing last night, 1:30 the night before. And I fucking love it. I'd just do printmaking forever if I could.

I made some pretty good prints this quarter. If you want to see them, they'll be up on Friday for open studios.

HOLY CRAP I forgot how much fun Of Montreal shows are! I have probably never danced so hard in my life. Honestly. So many sequins and tiger masks and crazy Ed Sullivan-esque stage apparatus, and Kevin was just so delightful. I'm a little in love with him.

to all my darling friends- [Nov. 3rd, 2007|12:43 am]

Y'all-

My most wonderful and outstanding printmaking mentor and friend, Paul Ritscher, is at a memorial for his brother Malachi this weekend. I did a little research, and found that Malachi was an incredible guy, who lit himself on fire as a final act of protest against a vast slew of horrors he couldn't reconcile himself with. And it never made the news.

His voice really deserves to be heard. He wrote his own obituary. You can read it at http://www.savagesound.com/gallery100.htm, and I hope you will. The truth is, I love Paul, and I think he'd be more at peace with his brother's death if he knew his message was being heard. So please hear it. Please.

love,
Sarah

I do not know my own way to the sea, but the saltiest sea knows its own way to me [Oct. 6th, 2007|12:30 am]

It is late at night, and I cannot sleep. I suddenly remembered this song my mom used to sing to me when I was little, and found these lyrics to it, but can't find a recording anywhere, and I just feel like all I need in the world is to hear this song. If I could hear her sing this right now, everything would be wonderful and I could sleep.

Baby owlet, purple owlet
Singing as dawn shines above.
Won't you lend me your swift pinion
Won't you lend me your swift pinion
Won't you lend me your swift pinion
That I may fly to my love.
Tetra coo coo coo
Tetra coo coo coo
Tetra coo coo coo
Baby owlet, poor little owlet.
He is tired from crying so.
If I were a baby owlet
I would never steal away.
If I were a baby owlet
I would never steal away.
Till my wings were strong and steady
Till my wings were strong and steady
Till my wings were strong and steady
Safe within my nest I'd stay.
Safe within my nest I'd stay.
Tetra coo coo coo
Tetra coo coo coo
Tetra coo coo coo
Baby owlet poor litle owlet
He is tired from crying so.

Just came home from Alex's gallery show. Spent a while sobbing pathetically in my room, called Sophie for some affirmation, and am now determined to do a really spectacular print.

It's SO HARD living with an artist as incredible as Alex. She's a professional. She's selling her artwork to OBEY and RVCA for thousands. She's so. much. better. than I am. Sitting there in the gallery, listening to everybody ooh and ahh over her stuff was so hard. Especially knowing that nobody will ever ooh and ahh over my artwork like that. I love her to death, truly, but I can't help but compare myself to her constantly and it's so taxing.
