I’m Erika. I’m 31, jack of all trades, master of none.
Well, not really.
This blog is about where and who I am now, and where I am going and what I will become once I get there. I’ve never been good at doing what’s expected of me, and usually when I do, it backfires. This blog is about what being mindfully absent encompasses: new journeys, new undertakings, old feelings, trust issues, finding joys, and how to cook/paint them all. Okay, probably not the cooking part, lets be honest. The important part is that I’m doing it all (mostly) and not doing other things, on purpose.
Right now I am writing from Portland, Oregon where I have spent the last 12 years of my life. I’m more than ready to move on from here, and plans are in the works to get somewhere more inspiring, less hurried, less expensive, and DRIER.
