circa1989 is a --> painter/illustrator/photo taker/artist/creator /maker of things/yoga instructor/nature lover/adventurer/explorer/gypsy/. currently living in the midwest where i run all activities from home and the road. all of these photos are taken by me.
so psyched about this summer. i cant even wait.
twenty random facts about me:
I was realy impressed by the album/artwork from the rolling stones exhibit at the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. it was all really beautiful and interesting and not just a display of rock relics.
1 <> original andy warhol print
2 <> commentary collage
3 <> original collage in lay for their satanic majesty request
4 <> look at that compass etching. this guitar was beautiful. whales, the wind blown clouds. the illustrations, my heart. everything.
Lose your dreams and you will loose your mind. Ain’t life unkind?
1 <> rising star. best coffee in CLE. hands down. they even have homemade almond milk they’ll foam & steam for you.
2 <> guitar riot.
3 <> free people had a free yoga event at their store in woodmere. it was so refreshing, and they had the most beautiful suspended floral spring displays which definitely inspired me to brighten up my apartment with botanicals and make to a little more festive to get though this last leg of winter.
4 <> kombucha at whole foods. the mother mushroom is grotesque but i keep going back for more.
5 <> sunday brunch at beachland. local & organic & good.
6 <> music saves in collinwood.
7 <> perusing records.

looking for a fight- bleached
thoughts on being a new teacher.
hours of preparation of asanas, (and modifications) time of day, trying to make the perfect playlist to ebb and flow with moments and mindset.
waves of nervousness alternating with waves of calm and reassurance that you know what you’re doing. just breathe. trying to find the balance between modelling, checking your students alignment and the appropriate pressure to touch them/ or not with when making adjustments.
take cues from your students. if they look confused you probably said left instead of right, you might have said elbow instead of knee. if they’re all panting and trying anymore call out child’s pose.
It’s a learning period for them as it’s a learning period for you.
long weekend photo dump.
1 <> a purse i begrudgingly left behind at the thrift store. repeating my experiences>things mantra. So far it’s mostly working, in a good way.

4 <> food prep. yum brussels.
5 <> presidents day weekend fondue party. melted cheese + chocolate, cards against humanity, and dancing. lots of dancing.
