Today is the birthdays of Keith Haring and Audrey Hepburn. I find them both exceptionally inspirational and know that I take bits and pieces of their lives as lessons on how to make myself better.
R worked late last night, so I drove to Issaquah and went to the gym, why Issaquah? The gym I go to normally closes at 7:00pm on Saturdays and the Issaquah one is open until 10:00pm. That was my Saturday night. I do have to say that I did love driving around in the rain and listening to Sonic Reducer on KEXP.
Also, apparently when I am bored, I shop for tattoo artist/parlors for these new tattoos that I have in my head. I figure I am not getting any younger and why not? The next one is going to be words across my chest in some sort of fancy script. It seems unexpected and out of character and that is what I am liking the most about it. Mix it up.
This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of the industrious Dick Proeneke, the poetic Harper Lee, and the beautiful Bianca Jagger, I posted the Holstee Manifesto, I added one of Audrey Hepburn’s quotes to the Words To Live By series, I suggested A Place In The Sun to the Required Viewing film list, and I made my annual plea to please wear sunblock. A nice varied list.

Over on Wasp & Pear on Tumblr I posted inspirational 70’s posters (and there are a lot more to come), a Cazwell video, vintage photos of Hollywood, New York City, and Seattle, and bad Chinese translations. I also posted a large series of vintage photographs of the Seattle Worlds Fair (the colors are incredible). There are of course abandoned places, there always will be. I found a series of photographs that show how much 200 calories of real food is, you would be surprised. I posted photographs of the art of Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, and Keith Haring. This week, I also started following a friend of 30+ years: Bee Lavender, as should you.
