Welcome to Holy Cheeses. It's 'another mother blog' but one with some fermented flavor. The hubbie's named Choppie and the boys are Bunnie (6) and Pup (3.5). Here you'll find notes on raising two-legged animals, spying on neighbors, making things and remembering to appreciate a lucky life.
Also note the writing! And the mohawk.
So for now, here we are, still.
This pic is of Pup in Eugene during Bastille Day.
here's a fun video) up on the walls at 18 Reasons, a place I often teach in San Francisco. This show (called "Home Made / Hand Drawn") is shared with an incredible artist (and also author) named Heather Hardison (her book is called Homegrown). It's a neat experience to hang my art on walls--especially since I get to do it with another woman artist whom I respect so much.
Since you don't have an updated photo, you should know this: Bunnie is barely a bunnie because he recently got a real haircut at the barber shop. He pointed towards the "mushroom haircut" photo on the barber's wall when I asked him which haircut he wanted. I gasped and asked the barber to use her best judgment
Pup is very much a pup--wearing his "night chonies" (that means underwear but that really means diapers). He loves preschool. He's quite confident and stubborn. He eats a South Beach diet, religiously, and we don't know.
As for me and Choppie, well, our lives as we know them are changing. I'll tell more when I know more (and feel brave enough to talk about it) but for now just this: we're moving at the end of the year--and moving far away.
P.S. No one knows Bunnie is called Bunnie…at least not yet!
Luckily, I'm able to see myself as I interact with these other communication platforms. I see myself drawn in but I also see myself grow bored. Starring at a tiny screen on a phone seems like such a stunted way to live! And it is. It'll never match the satisfaction of talking to a real human or of noticing the enormous universe swirls around the phone itself. For now, my intention is to keep an awareness of what I'm doing as I hang out online--and to regularly return here to see if I can't type out a solid paragraph or two.
