AHHH!  Warm, sunny city in the desert.  How I adore thee!  Well, I working up to it anyway.  This is a much different environment than the sleepy little mountain town I have removed myself from, and I do appreciate it for that.  I can't wait to make friends and see more of the things I came here for: art, dancing, music, CULTURE!!! 
This past halloween I attended a viewing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show here in "the valley" (as it is so endearingly called) and it was excellent.  I have finally fulfilled my lifetime goal of seeing Rocky in the theater with a live action cast in front of the screen.  My next goal...get on the crew as Magenta or Columbia...because of my short hair people think I could be Columbia, but I am truly a Magenta girl at heart! 
Life is pretty sweet for my type (yah my type!) open minded, outgoing, cute...
Anyway, I'm in love with the sweetest man I've ever met and loving living with him here in the city he grew up in.  I'm learning the ropes pretty quick as he knows them well. 

Until next time Sayonara (or whatever they say in Japan).

So...
I said I was moving to Scottsdale right...
I am in position of losing the house that I have rented and lived in for 5 years.  The house was up for sale and has been sold.  This house is the last of the cheap rentals in Prescott.   I've been paying $250 a month for a 2 bedroom house that I live in alone like a queen!   I can't afford to work 20 hours a week at just above minimum wage and do my art, live my life, be a good girlfriend and pay more rent...well I could, but it wouldn't be the life I want.
So moving to Scottsdale where the wages are higher and the potential for free rent is enticing.   As much as I love my man, I've been accustomed to living alone and the thought of living with him and his father got to be a little intimidating...I was beginning to wonder if there was a back-up plan in the works.  
This past weekend the house I live in was sold.  Sold to a man that has been a customer at the store I work at for years.  He knows me.  He asked me to stay on as a tennant for free for four months or so until he is ready to rennovate.  I couldn't be happier...until yesterday when a friend who heard he was going to tear the house down (which he is not) got sentimental and decided she was going to buy it from him...now I know she wouldn't boot me out on the street, but she can't let me live there for free for as many months as he had offered.  I am in a tizzy trying to figure out what the h*ll to do!  I quit my job, then I decided I would stay on once a week at the store, now I think I might have to really quit my job and move. 
*Everything is hazy, everything is crazy, everything is up in the air!*
She may not buy the house, if she does she's extended an invite for a particular creepy male friend to live there...so I know I'm not staying not even for a week!
All I want to know is...should I be packing up my house or unpacking what I've already packed.  Should I prepare to have more garage sales or donate the stuff I don't want to keep...what the h*ll should I do?!
GRR woof!

Have you ever woke up in the morning to realise that everything you think you know has become insignificant...have you ever woke up and wanted more...more...more!?
Well I have...this small town life is getting to me!  I love Prescott, but its time to move on to bigger and better things.  There is no culture here, there is no music scene, there is no fashion, no gay people (well maybe just a small population), and the people are white as far as the eye can see.  BORING!  Rabbits need diversity and culture!  At least this little bunny does.  So...what is the plan for the bunny gal? 
My dear one owns a house in Scottsdale, the heart of the city-fied desert...he has invited me to live there and make it my art studio and home...rent free!  I plan to dedicate myself to my art, to make it my life and livelihood, to immerse myself in the experience of the city and to love every minute that I am in the presence of my dear one.  Of course I have some money saved to make it a bit easier on the two of us...that way I'll buy all my own necessities and other desireables.  OH!  It's so exciting I can hardly wait...I think I'll bust!  Scottsdale...hopefully I will really enjoy it, and we're going to be coming back to Prescott in the summer...just what I've always wanted!  Living on the edge of security, creating and creating ad infinitum! 
When I was in High School I learned "Carpe Diem" in Latin class...now here I am siezing the day!

It's my birthday (tomorrow), but why not celebrate today!?  I'm not exactly sure of my plans, but they almost surely will include some romance and perhaps some smooching.  I'm wearing my special birthday dress today.  It's a little piece I made up two weeks ago, the top is out of the dumpster and the bottom $0.25 pink and purple floral taffeta from the thrift mart.  I added some $0.10 irredescent sequins to the top and viola!  Instant birthday princess!

LOVE IS THE BEST!!

I spent 4 whole days in the company of my sweet and it was luxurious!  We went walking on the golf courses at night and thrift shopping and ate yummy food (if you are ever in Scottsdale, Az visit Ellie's Deli Lebanese cuisine).  I got some fun costume stuff and spent lots of time lounging with my lover.  And now we get to be together for a solid month or more, he has brought his camper up here and we are living next door to each other!  BLISS!
In other news...I may be posting my art on a website near you soon.  I have found a woman here in town who has a gallery site (www.sparrowpress.com) and she is very much interested in my collage art.  So keep an eye out for me.

I may be just a stickler for details, but now I'm seeing Care2 advertising for Pfizer - a drug company!  This is not the environmental, healthy perspective that I want to see promoted here!  Tell Care2 you don't like drugs being pedaled on your email site!

Here at Prescott Natural Foods, it's eighties day everyday...it's too bad we don't have bad hair happy hour...you know for all the mullets and big hair styles that harken back to the days of my youth.  FREE DRINKS FOR ALL THOSE WHO BOTHER TO HAVE A BAD HAIR-DO!  But this isn't a night club, it's a natural foods store so...I guess we could give out free smoothies! 
Anyway, the major subject of conversation today has been - "Rachel why are you still plugging away at this job when you're a talented artist?" 
I feel majorly frustrated on this topic and don't really have an answer except, when it's time for me to be a successful artist it will happen.  Of course, I have to find the opportunity it's not just going to fall in my lap.  I feel so wrapped up in other things right now, it's frustrating to think about how I'm going to make it in the art world (especially the 'middle of the road, blah' art world here in Prescott).    People keep telling me to get my art on the internet, sell my products all over the state...it's too much.  I want something simple, strait forward and tailored to me.  I keep thinking about leaving Prescott, the culture here isn't for me.  We are missing out on the gay culture, the pagan culture...all that's here is Buddhists, adventure education kids, and activists...ugh!  It's cowboy town to the max... cowboy fashion, cowboy art, cowboy livin'.  I love the big city style and opportunities, but I would miss the simplicity here.  I would miss the quiet nights, the stars, the creek running through town, the kindness of people I meet here at the store.  I can't just sit here forever being a cashier!  I've got to get it together for myself.  I have to be the artist that I know I am.  There is so little to time to waste it on survival  and security.  
What is next for me?  I guess I'll find out.  Going with the flow seems to be the way...

So...I logged on to my care2 account yesterday and found an ad for none other than the US ARMY!!!!  I was like "WHAT?!"  How is that helping the planet!? 
I am encouraging all care2 subscribers to petition the site to do away with its ad campaining for death and destruction of this planet and its people!!  It's disgusting!

There's a moon in the sky called the moon and beneath its pale white light I find myself in love with the concept of love...among other things.

Life is so sweet these days.  I am preparing for several special events which require costumes.  Two weeks - My birthday party.  The Theme - The last days of disco, celebrating my new year and my separation from the home I have lived in for 5 years.  The house is to be put to rest and I am moving on (in more ways than one).  Then of course it's halloween, the pagan new year!  And my favorite holiday of all time.  This year - Little Bo Peep has lost her marbles.  Hopefully I will have pictures to share with the public here.  
I am still seeking the key to living prosperously and freely and creatively...hopefully it will pop up soon.  
Cashiering is less than creative, although I love it for so many other reasons.  If only my boss wasn't such a negative nelly.
Love conquers all - with hugs, giggles, and kisses for everyone!
