A few days ago I began the initial discussion to plan an experience in Miami during Art Week in December. I'll know by June 1 what's happening, and hopefully begin planning the biggest event of my life so far. We're wrapping up the video on this years Vail Cup Collectors Club, which was my greatest undertaking up until this point. I'll definitely be hosting that event again next February, so if Miami pans out next year will be the busiest of my life.
I've been corresponding with people via composition notebook in the mail rather than digitally. It's a slow moving process, but my self portraits are improving tremendously. If you want to be my pen pal, shoot me a message for the details. I'm on a mission to ditch digital, and eventually expect to only communicate face to face, or via composition notebook. I feel like I've given my life to technology, and I want it back.
I spend a lot of my alone time in the car. There are some extraordinary sights around here, that I get to enjoy on an almost daily basis. I have a few favorite curves on this earth, and one of them is the turn into the front of Minturn; I've never seen anything like it. As you S between a river and a rock face, a little bridge brings you into our little town. The town has one road with no more than one or two blocks in either direction, nestled snug between the natural geographical wonder that is our earth. I love pulling into Minturn every morning (or afternoon). I have the nicest neighbors, and a personal relationship with most of the dozen business owners in town. Friday I spent time talking with the boys at Weston Snowboards, Dan at Holthammer Motorcyle (the baddest Harley Davidson bike shop I've ever encountered), my new neighbor Kevin who is building a photography studio across the street. In addition to digital photography, he has a dark room a general store, and a coworking art space developing. My dude Mark down the road at Kirby Cosmos feeds me more than a few times a week, and when I'm not there I grab Gardunos authentic tacos or the Thai Kitchen Minturn who bring the heat and always greet me with a smile and nice chat.
If you follow my Drinking Vessels Instagram, you'll notice it's turning into an advertisement space for my friends. I hate social media, but I love the fact that I can share my friends amazing projects with as many people as I do. Every day I wake up and scroll through Instagram thinking about how I can promote my friends, which is usually the click of a few buttons and I'm learning how to make gifs (typing in a search bar). Just a few short months until JCost arrives to help me sort out this massive undertaking I somehow got myself into. It's my goal to bring you the best content I can, and I've gotten to the point where I can admit it's gotten too big for me to maintain on my own. It's hard to admit we need help sometimes, because it means facing our flaws and recognizing that we may not be the best at something we've worked hard at. I'm working on admitting I can't do it all, but I'm committed to finding the best people for each role that comes up in this project.
I was sick in the beginning of the week, which put a damper on my time with my brother. The snow came later in the week, which I couldn't refuse this late in the season. I blew glass a little this week, but when I did I was thoroughly enjoying myself. I'll take a half day on the hill today, and spend the afternoon on the torch. An ideal Sunday for me.
Thanks for tuning in and enjoy your day!
