kitty wrote sent me a monkey mail on my bif day it was sweet. i emailed her thanking her for it, and told her that i saw a bunch of girls around town who remined me of her. she always called people who look like someone else 'stunt doubles'.

i am so proud of her, she's training to be a muy thai boxer. which sooooo suits her. she has always been one of the toughest girls i've known, though you'd never know it meeting her since she comes across as she is-- good peeps. but when you'd get her on the set, she'd shine. up here she worked as a film and video producer, which is planning/logistics/working the phone. and where most producers would be just working the phones, kitty would be working with the crew too. hauling dolly tracks, lifting lights moving the set, if it was physical, she'd be in there, mixing it up with the boys.

she's amazing.
anyways, she wrote back this:

Subject: RE: kitty sent you a Monk-E-Mail!

As long as you remember there is only ONE original when you see all those stunt duuubles walking around town.

I was thinking of you too...
I'm reading this book called Eat, Pray, Love.
Have you heard of it?
In it, the woman is going through some stuff and trying to find herself ..whatever-somewhat cheesey. But
she's in this Ashram learning meditation and stuff and she's having a hard time concentrating because she's thinking of her ex-bf.(kind of funny)
One of her friends at the Ashram says to get over it and she says...But we were soul mates.
And he says...
Your problem is that you don't understand what that word means. People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that's holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so that you can change your own life. A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But live with your soul mate forever? nah, too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just long enough to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then they leave. Though, they're always there.

kind of sweet, no? You smacked me awake to my own potential ...that's for damn sure!

You'll probably...or maybe start getting more muay thai pics pretty soon. Some exciting news...I'm going to start training two more days a week now. So that will make it 5 days a week. It's like I'm on a real fighter schedule. Scary, crazy and ultimate fun! [her trainer] is putting together a private morning class with just four peeps. She asked me to be one of them. ACK! I'm flipping out. I'll be paired with this dude...for obvious reasons. But she said it's time I start training with the boys for real and that I'm probably one of the only girls that is strong enough to hold for him anyways. hee hee. Can you feel my pride spreading when she said that? It's cool because her one on one sessions were so helpful and now I'll be getting that kind of attention two days a week. I'm so excited for it. I swear though, she's riding my ass hard these days. I can't get away with shit ever since I told her I wanted to fight! Yesterday was a hard workout. We were finishing with this killer ab circuit. I was on the second to last exercise and I dropped by legs for a milisecond to catch my breath and she's like....C'MON KITTY, PUSH THROUGH! YOU GOTTA FINISH STRONG!
and I'm like...Bitch! this shit hurts! jk jk jk. Of course, I got my legs up and finished strong but daaaaaaaaaamn.
I like having someone kick my ass like that though. I always knew I had the spirit but it's so helpful to have someone else push you and then it's like I get to prove little victories to myself every time I workout.

it's very, very sweet. i'll always be your biggest fan, you do know that don't you?
i love that you are training with boys, you are such a tough cookie! a "staunch character!" a baddass! but that's what i always loved about you-- you can go toe to toe with anyone on anything. you are more than smart and tough enough, but whats more, when you decide on it-- you've got so much heart-- you are unstoppable. that's why you've always been my hero. a totem-- one of the people who, when i look at myself, i ask myself, WWKD? what would kitty do? and in my head i hear you say, toughen up! and i push thru. obviously my life changed since i met you, but you gave me quite a smack too!

as for my life, work is dumb, they've got me doing everything but welding, and it's heart breaking. but i think, you are getting paid umpteen+ an hour to do busy work, and it's paying for the rest of your electrolysis, so shut up and keep working. eletrolysis is going good. i'm going twice a week, which is pretty pricey, but that hair is slowly going away.

i submitted some of my paintings to a trans art show in sf, and one of them got accepted-- it's a collective that E is involved in. i am debating going down for the opening since tiff said the tickets are cheap and it would cost less than 200 rt.

i have a painting that i am dying to do in my head. it should be cool. black grey and white with a splash of color. it's of the bride of frankenstein-- i'm a bit obsessed. my sketch book has become full of drawings of her. i wrote a new artist statement that goes something like this:
"It has been said that a transexual's story is written on their body. My work is concerned with that idea--- the juxtaposition of body and the word, construction and self-construction, text and subtext. It refocuses W.E.B. DuBois' concept of "twoness" on transgenderism.

The construction is used visually in the meditation on archetypes of pop-culturally constructed women--Galatea, Eliza Doolittle, the Bride of Frankenstein, & the robot Maria from Metropolis--who are the subject of the paintings. The media used is often permanent, bold, solid. Sometimes the pieces are in spray paint, other times drawn in marker that will sometimes eat through other parts of the work.

The self-construction is addressed by the words written on the canvas. They are the subtext of the image, often written in pencil or chalk around the central figure of the piece. They are transitory, evolving, ever-changing, mercurial.

The artwork uses words to define oneself and one's place in the world. The writing is the internal monologue of understanding oneself as one constructs oneself. It is the breaking away of the soul from what one is supposed to be to grow into what one wants to be: the external vs. the internal, the visual (seen) body vs. the soul, heart & brain."

so that's what i wrote anyways. i'm really only drawing the bride, i am sure the others will come into play, but for now she is it. i am thinking i might want to do some model drawing to get some more natural poses, and some variation in the poses.

anywayz i want to do this painting but i can't cos i am trying to get this goddamn loft built in the front area. my neighbor w. said he'd build it for me and had the supplies and everything, but he's flaked for 2 weeks, and now said i should buy the materials. grrrr! it's just pissing me off.

i can't wait till the 'lectrolysis is over. it sucks having facial hair and not shaving, but i have to do it. but i want to start looking for dj gigs again.... oh! one of my neighbors who djs-- there are a couple of them in the bldg-- threw out her mixer as she was moving out and i got it! it's super swank! i kinda wanna get a coffin n turntables so i can tote them to gigs, but i think i should get gigs first. car got towed. i have to get some lic. etc. that i haven't had time for. so i got the car back and can't park on the street or i'll get towed again. seems no matter how much i make, something comes on the scene to mean i owe.

anyways, and that's pretty much it.

i miss you! and as for your doppelgangers, i know the real deal when i see it!
