accidental flares of love burst through the atmosphere

The day I believed in love, the day I didn't

I've had this empty draft of a post saved for days and days because I haven't felt like writing anything or even posting photos from the past couple weeks.

I went back to Baseman's exhibit last weekend and met him for a few minutes. That guy...

Friday night a friend/coworker had his first art show with his girlfriend and a couple other photographers; his work was amazing and so was the barebox/his apartment (his apartment is seriously so awesome that his neighbors turned it into a gallery).

I'm going to Salvation Mountain near Palm Springs this Saturday and next. This weekend with Cindy and Lily, and the next for sunrise with BV. I don't even care if it's 110 degrees, and I also don't care that it's super Jesus-y, because it's sooo beautiful to look at. Don't know what I'm talking about? Look. I can't wait I can't wait!!! Photos are going to be AMAZING.

On Sunday I'm going to this event at the Egyptian Theatre. A look at the ART AND DESIGN of the X-FILES....screening 2 of my favorite episodes...and Chris Carter will be there. So if I suddenly stop blogging forever, you can just assume I've died of happiness.

My heart has been all over the fucking place in the past month. In love, out of love, sad, happy, evil, pure. I feel at ease with the great weather and my amazing friends, but if I'm left alone with my own thoughts for too long (sans a good TV show to watch), shit gets weird. Will I EVER stop feeling like this? I know it's a stupid question, but for fuck's sake, I usually feel so happy and I'd like that back.

I might as well ask here since mayyyybe some of you might consider purchasing something someday: Of sketches you've seen, which styles do you like? If you were to buy my artwork on something, what would it be? (Phone case? Print? greeting card? Can be anything at all, I'm just gathering ideas.) ANY opinions and comments would be reeeeeally helpful. Even if it's just, "Hanna you suck, please stop blowing up my Instagram feed 30x a day with your doodles." If you don't think you've seen enough of them (I actually haven't posted very many here, so I suppose that's a possibility), they're all here.

I think I'm done with words. I made a playlist, because music and art are all I've got in terms of organized feeling and thought. YOU may not think this playlist is organized (do you ever, honestly?) but it's workin for me.
