Project Dissertation

I moved to this fabulous city three years ago mainly to; be near an airport for travel, be able to not trade my stilletos for trainers, and to finish my doctoral studies in four years. Yes, that pretty much sums up my priorities at 30. So now I am ABD with nine months to go and San Francisco is no easy city to ignore. Although, I would argue that each experience that deters my academic writing is really just needed inspiration. Welcome and I hope you enjoy...

Cool December Sun

Unbelievable it is December. Although the sun shines brightly the mornings start at about 46 degrees. It took me three years but finally made peace with the cold: Read cashmere turtleneck, under a wool coat, and boots. Bueno pues, it just doesn't get this cold in LA.

Beautiful days make for cozy nights where you just want to stay in. That is good for my writing, that is growing impatient for approval. The process of the dissertation seems to get far worse before it gets better. Fortunately I have had a taste of the other side, know what I would like to do with the time I will regain when this process is over.

The moon is almost full and the week has been that much more interesting. Drinks with a new friend, a belly dancing class, long walks to the ocean, and the reaffirmation that as things end- new things are given the chance to grow.

Walking through my neighborhood last night saw newly lit trees in bay windows, wreaths on big wooden doors, and twinkling lights along the the banisters... The month is full of invitations, celebrations, and the melding of my past, present and future.
