It’s Friday night, and the outside is loud with cars. It’s about 9 pm. But it is quiet in my apartment except for the snoring of my little piglet who is not a real piglet, he is a dog, but I like to call him Piglet. A friend of mine once posted on Facebook of all places about the death…

Ten more days left of November. Time tends to fly the older you get. I’ve been working on drawings a lot lately. They are coming along nicely. Being on ETSY and selling some gives me extra motivation. If anyone reading this and would like to check them out: HTTP://etsy.com/shop/ghost4boris. It is nice to know that someone else likes your art.…

Insomnia. It’s been a couple of weeks since I was able to suspend myself into the sweet honey of dreams. I don’t know what happened. Nothing has changed in my routine. But nevertheless, here we are, not sleeping. The upside of insomnia is reading. After all, you have an entire night to kill. That’s a lot of hours. We don’t…

It is the end of October and the temperature is still in the 60’s. It is crazy. I hope that winter will appear sometime and make me happy with a little frost in the mornings. We went to a field this morning and somehow spent 3.5 hours there. Time flew as there were a lot of people and other beasties…

Beautiful day today. It’s pretty cold in the morning but with sunshine. Just like I like it. Reminds me of early Fall in Alaska. I walk my dog with pleasure on such days and try to stay outside as much as possible. Surrounded by beautiful colors of trees preparing to shed their leaves which makes the air brighter it is…

For the past several days I’ve been fighting with a spider in my apartment that weaves his net at my head level on the balcony door. Every day I free my door from the intricate work of the spider and every day he restores it to its former glory. I am afraid it’s a losing battle. Outside of my apartment,…

Today is a lazy day for me. I started it with an intention to run but quickly realized that today might take more effort as I hiked 10 miles the day before so naturally, I bailed out and went back to sleep. Besides, it was rainy outside of my window and rain always gives pleasure to staying inside. Not much…

Some days are tougher than others. Today is that day. No reason that I can determine. Everything is the same. And besides, I went on a 10-mile walk with my beastie in the morning. That usually takes care of all the trash that tends to reside in the mind. So yes, I have no idea why. It just how it…

Today I took some time off work in the morning and went on a two-hour urban hike with my beastie. It was beautiful. The leaves are turning. The Fall is here. Fall is my favorite season here in Oregon since winters do not have snow. When I was living in Alaska it was winter. I loved -40F and deep snow…

Today I went to COSTCO and got some new pillows. I splurged as they were not cheap like IKEA’s. As soon as I got home the first thing I did is to test them and lo and behold, almost fell asleep immediately. I guess it is a sure sign that it is paying off. Next paycheck I am splurging on…

Today because I had a lottery ticket I fantasized about the life of being independently wealthy. It was not anything extraordinary. Most of it was a lifestyle that I lead already: walking, hiking, drawing, running. The only thing that would have changed is my living accommodations. I would either move to English or Irish moors by the ocean or stay…
