I'm going through the Sasquatch lineup and schedule, determining who I most want to see and making sure I have the music to get me amped for it. Holymoly do I ever need a small escape from this island! Three more sleeps till we leave, four more till the start of it all :)

Every day I gain a little bit more acceptance of the fact that we are no longer together. And yet with every day, I still miss you. Today has been such a quiet day...and it has been a hard one, especially those quiet moments that would have once been spent with you. Even though I have friends to get me through this, not having my family members right now blows.
I never thought I'd be asked to leave where I was once begged and stalled to stay

I've been playing this song, especially the remix version, quite a bit lately. It is such an amazing video, and of course I feel like I can identify with it at the moment. Funny how you can find something in any song to identify with when you're feeling blue.

I feel like this is the perfect time in my life to finally buy myself another tattoo. One that has been in my head for at least the past two years. And to perhaps acknowledge my desire to finally get it, I've searched through all of my Grandma's old letters to seek out the words "Let go and be" to accompany the feather that I want on my inner left arm. What a simple phrase, yet one that holds a lot of meaning. I've always looked up to both my Grandma and mother as two women who I feel have really embodied that phrase and made whatever life dealt them work, even though at times they may have struggled.
Last week as I was right at the beginning of all of this emotional roller-coaster, a co-worker who I share many of my tattoo passions with, suggested that perhaps this was a way to take back a bit of myself...and I agree with him. So now my question is...do I get it before Sasquatch and try to fit in an appointment next week, or do I wait till I'm back and maybe have a bit more time to heal? Because this is all happening so quickly, I almost feel like it might be better to wait. I still need to decide on a feather too...I was thinking perhaps the flight feather of an owl. Hmm...more research to follow.
