Breathing, it’s kinda important…

The bad news is you’re falling through the air, nothing to hang on to, no parachute. The good news is there’s no ground.

~ Shambala Buddhism founder Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Asterisk San Francisco Magazine + Gallery

It’s been a pretty exhilarating year thus far. The fact that February is coming to a close is pretty mind-boggling. Sometimes, I have that feeling that I’m not documenting enough but, as the subject line states, breathing is important. I’ve turned blue a few times this year already due to depriving myself fresh air and relaxation. Recently, I started a new role with Asterisk Magazine + Gallery as the space’s curator. Being a San Francisco native, my involvement with Asterisk has been instrumental in my growth and development as a writer. I’ve learned a lot about engagement with the community. Although the experiences have differed greatly from my research, its been integral in my understanding of how people want to read, see, and experience art (and content, both physically and virtually).

I will keep this short and sweet but I invite you, dear reader, friends, and family reading this post, to pay the Asterisk Gallery a visit some time this month and give feedback. On a side note, I recently found out that I got into graduate school! I’m still overwhelmed but really happy about the rest of the year and diving into my research. Rest assured, I believe breathing and meditation will take precedence in the very near future. Currently balancing a full-time 9-5 job, blogging, and Asterisk have proven that stopping every now and again to take a walk and take in some oxygen is muy importante. Again, I invite you to visit the gallery and check out my new academic home for the fall here.

    1. Thank you so much, Michelle! So many things happening this year. I’m learning a lot about time and project management really quickly. The curatorial work is challenging but I really enjoy it. 🙂 Thanks again for all of your support. I can’t thank you enough.

  1. I’m really, really happy that you’re happy- congratulations! For me it’s a given that you’re in graduate school.

    For the Santos girls, the oldest is the dumbest and the youngest is the smartest.(Put an smiley emoticon right here.)

    Asterisk Gallery is definitely on my To Do list.

    By the way, I hope your meditations give you just the right amount of health and happiness!
