I decided to start my diary again today. After a long months of work, I'm finally relaxing at home. My life become weird lately. Too many coincidence happen and it seem like it made me wake up from the long long long sleep. I'm sure we wake up many times through our lives and each time we see world around us changed. Well, get ready and comfortable... I will tell you my many stories....
I wanted to begin like that... I was born in Russia, in 70s, in a small town near Moscow... when I realized that i already talked about it in my book "Last train from Roppongi". Now I need to find a new start. Where should I start now? There was many turning points in my life already, and now there is one again... I discovered that I'm An Artist. Since I was very young, somehow I knew that people will see world through my eyes. That is one of the things I knew I had forever. But I was never sure of what to do with it or what it was. Or how to use it. I just fallowed my intuition... And this is where it brought me.
I'm siting in the kitchen in my small apt. in SF, I've been renting it for 11 years now.
There is a beautiful house for sale right across the corner, but of course I have no money to buy it. I don't even know if I would want to live there, but it's so beautiful, that it's hard to not to think about it.
My kitchen is quite cute. I have a big painting of a orange bird on the wall. Somebody gave it to me long time ago as a prop for the short film I wanted to make about the artist and never took it back, becasue it's very havy. Now I might have to give it to someone else, because I'm an artist and I want to make a big film. But no... I will keep the painting. Because I really like it. My head is spining around.... I also love taking photos. I descovered it very resently.
I just turned 35 and I was very nerveous before my birthday. Becasue another things I knew since I was a child that I was 35 from day 1 and for 35 years i was waiting that birthday to arive. So something inside me and my body can connect together and new life will start for me. So here I am now.
