I may not be drawing much lately, but I am taking a lot of photographs.
I’ve lived in Santa Barbara more than a year now and I still look like a tourist taking pictures of everything with my phone. At least I don’t look like the silly tourists taking pictures with their iPads.
Someone even asked me (as I was taking a photo of restaurant) if I was from Europe. No, I live here, I replied and looked at him like he was crazy.
There is plenty of beauty here worth capturing.
The purpose of life… Is to give life purpose?
Here is a view into my backyard. I see the ocean every day on my way to work, and every night on my way home. It is absolutely beautiful.
eyeLaugh is officially one year old! Hooray!
A lot has changed in one year. Fell in love, lost a love, but started a new life. I love looking through old eyeLaugh posts and I still laugh out loud at them.

I love living by the beach. I love living in a town where there is always something going on. I love working at the museum. I love that I haven’t even tried 2% of the restaurants here. I love that everyone is an artist. I love walking into a locally owned coffee shop and everyone is wearing plaid. I love reading in the news about shark sightings. I love having an ocean view in my history class. I love that the court house is one of the most beautiful buildings I have been in.
And I love doing this all on my own.
Wednesday is my Friday. So although I hate Wednesdays because I go to work then class then class all day and I can barely keep my eyes open on my 15 minute drive home, I LOVE Wednesdays because I don’t have to wake up early the next day! And I only have work at the museum on Thursday evening which is not even akin to working because I love it so much. Then sometimes I have actual Friday off but sometimes I work… And I always work Saturday. So I have a mini-weekend. And it’s more of a week-mid instead of a week-end. What day is your Friday?
Here is a drawing I did in REAL LIFE!
Not that any of my other drawings aren’t real, or that you imagined them…or did you? What IS real, anyway? There’s a philosophical thought for you to mull over while observing my ink sketch.
