Water Phonix - 52/52

Water phoenix, because I feel like I've been reborn, but I'm not too fond of fire. If anyone knows of a walrus that dies and then is reborn from the bottom of the sea, let me know.


I have no idea where to begin. I guess I can start by stating the obvious: this is the end of my 52 Week Project. And I shaved my head. I can’t believe how fast it all went by. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was sitting in my living room with crazy makeup and feathers in my mouth (wtf...), pretending to be a cat. And then there I was in little Pierceton, Indiana: head shaved and alone in the woods, dumping ice water on my head and shivering even though it was hot as hell, laughing because my clippers died (DUCKASS), feeling creeped out because of the dark cabin standing behind me, itchy because of all the little hairs falling down my shirt and omg THE BUG BITES. But most of all, I was purely happy. Everyone at the Midwest Gathering were not only extraordinary artists, they were the most genuine, kind and loving people I have ever met. I would go through a million more flight cancellations and scary people in Chicago to see them all again. Falling asleep without having the stars over my head and crazy photographers at my side last night was so strange, I think I forgot how boring it can be at home (like seriously, where the hell was and senor murder?!). I wish I could say “fuck real life” and mean it, but after those 6 days with everyone, that WAS real life…just a more awesome version of the one I have in California. I miss you all so dearly and I can’t find the words to express how close I hold you all to my heart, I wish I had you all near me again (and constantly touching my head…I feel like a puppy wanting to be pet). I can't wait to see you all again and eat cake.


And a HUGE thanks to Ethan Coverstone for hosting this incredible meetup and letting me do this!!! YOU ARE FREAKING AWESOME!
