    summer! yay

    "what do you do in the summer?"

    hopefully a lot of climbing (outside ) and frisbee, beach-volleyball, barbecue and all those nice little things in summer: eating breakfast/lunch/dinner outside, hang out in parks and so on....can't wait for it

    this soundtrack by hans zimmer describes summer pretty good:

    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    As depressing as it is, not much outside time for me, at least not in the grassy/woods around our area. Ridiculous levels of ticks. Lymes disease and worse, not worth it.


    Will still probably walk my dogs, and hang out in less grassy more concrete type areas. Swim etc.

    Though probably moving sometime soon, maybe to a waterfront if lucky. That would be perfect, far away from the woods and ticks, and could go on the water to get some exercise .

    Winter is coming for us and I'm really happy about that. I was born in the wrong climate, I love waking up to the cold grey skies and heavy rain. Summers here are pretty unforgiving, though popular with outdoorsy types.

    Summer. Whee!
    I'm hoping to visit my grandma in italy.

    Other than that I'm going to wear comfortable clothes that actually look nice on me. I fucking love summers . It's the only season it's hot enough to do that.
    And maybe try socialising at the barbecue my apartment complex has annually. And go fishing! Been ages since I've done that.
    Sandals! I'll let my toes breathe. And wear other shoes that doesn't just look horrible.

    In the summer my primary goal is to keep from melting. 80+ degree heat and no air conditioning, yeehaw...

    So mostly I hang out outside all day and come up with creative ways to do my work in the park. And live on fruit and ice cream and gallons of liquids.

    Oh, and I take advantage of all the free/cheap outdoor concerts and festivals and dance parties. That's the one really cool thing about summer.

    And when I can't take the heat anymore I try to get the Hell out of Dodge for a week or so... If possible...

    Plein air while getting a tan. In particular, apart from plein air in NYC where I live, I will also be painting at the White Mountains in New Hampshire because of a scholarship I won.

    That. Even in what passes for hot weather in Oireland. Much as the brighter spring days cheer me up, I generally prefer a bit of cloud cover and a breeze later on. The yellow eye burns us, my precious.

    On the other hand, more and better daylight for going to look at purty landscapes and beasts and things.

    ...which is only my opinion.

    Hopefully get a job that I can sustain on, and survive the Californian heat.
    Meanwhile, I am trying to save up for an ice cream machine and sunglasses.

    I'm pretty excited. My friends are opening a booth at the farmers market down by the beach where I can sell my art. It's gonna have to be cheap, so I'm working on a bunch of loose ink studies and small oil paintings.

    It's too hot here to do anything outside besides go swimming. So I swim all the time or stay inside unless I feel like dying of heat stroke.

    Popsicle are my treat of choice. I eat Bomb Pops like a true fucking American.

    From what I hear, when people from Pretoria emigrate to Cape Town, the thing they find the most difficult to get used to are the hot but rainless summers. Pretoria can get pretty hot in summer, but we do get a nice thunderstorm every few days to cool us down a bit. They can be quite spectacular too...

    Raoul Duke, where in So Cal are you? If you're around Venice I might spot you there.

    Summer?! It's not even Spring yet!

    But as for what I'll be doing, I'll be doing the same things I'm doing now: going to school and working and making art. I usually do a lot of artwork over the summer so hopefully I'll do more of that. I'm also trying to get together the funds to take a trip to New York for an art workshop which would be amazing.

    Usually swim at either the beach or the waterhole, often both in the same day, but watermelon + orange juice after a big fat joint is obligatory. Night time arrives, spirits come out

    This. Eat popsicles until the roof of my mouth is raw and feels like it may bleed. Real true fucking Americans still brave those cheap freezer pops that come in a plastic tube that tries its hardest to slice the corners of your lips, but bomb pops are an acceptable alternative, along with push up pops and fudgesicles. And when I want to feel like a grown up, I love the lime flavored edys fruit bars. Real fruit juice and not just frozen sugar water and food coloring? Classy, I tell you.

    Actually, I was born in Joburg, so I've had my share of electrical storms. We had almost constant power outages. Fond memories of my sister and I sitting with my mom with candles during violent storms while she would tell us stories.

    Yup, a power outage can sometimes be a fun adventure rather than an annoyance, if it doesn't stay out so long that everything in the fridge goes off. :-)

    I go walking! I do that any season really since it helps clear my head, but there's nothing like hating how hot it is and wandering off for miles and miles in a heat wave anyway. When I lived with my housemates we'd wander off to a really far away cinema/arcade. Don't think we even used them but it was an odd destination for a walk.

    More outdoor time for painting and every evening around sunset I sit on the front porch with the woman and drink adult beverages and prairie dog, while the 6 cats and 1 dog play in the front yard.

    This:



    Oslo has great park-culture, so I'll be spending most of my days there with tons of beer, hot dogs, good friends and guitars.
    The daytime can contrary to popular belief occasionally be scorching. The nights are just right. Cool and mellow, but not cold at all. Everywhere you go you get the nostalgic smell of lighter fluid from all the grilling that's going on.
    Can't wait.

    If I can get the money I'd like to go and pester Marcus Hodge and then maybe have a visit around London. Besides that, probably just drinking and doing art.

    I'm going to spend a lot of time out in the garden pulling out unwanted green objects. Then I will bike, bike pretty much everywhere, probably carting my plein-air painting supplies around. And then there will be festivals! We only have like... five months to do all outdoor partying so we get busy. There will also be at least one hiking trip and I'm going to try to persuade some of the other pasty basement-dwellers to go for some barbecues out at the lakes.

    I will be able to open the windows and not wear three layers of clothing inside the house.

    It's going to be SO FUCKING AWESOME.
