Odd productive-and-unproductive day.

Knocked out a bunch of logistics for my August-spanning trip, including writing up three new workshop proposals, contacting folks who’ll be putting me up, and getting the ball rolling on some infrastructure work for one of the events.

I also did a test run of my living statue and worked out some kinks in the costuming. She’s coming with me on the road, packed in her steamer trunk and we’ll be exploring farmers markets and festivals together.

I’ve been getting a lot of grumbling from my hips- to the point where it’s been too painful to pike up into a handstand- so I set down my training today, and as a result despite all the logistical stuff, I feel like I didn’t DO anything today. My body is too well set on considering only days when it gets to do the work to be useful days, sometimes.

I’m Glasmond and I’m size 44 (Germany) / 16 (USA). I’m an artist and I love to draw curvy ladies. I also love that people come in different sizes, shapes and colours, and that’s why I’m very okay with my body. It’s the most important thing I own.



This look is just like utter indifference combined with making a mildly awkward pose look effortlessly comfortable.

This person is clearly part cat.

The New Essentials

Since I moved to Portland three years ago, idly fucking off into the woods for a handful of days at a time has been a big part of my summers. Over time, my camping habitat has gotten increasingly more refined, mostly due to the fact that I have a car (usually stuffed with other fucking-off-into-the-woods’ers) and can pack things like a full length mirror. Or a giant stripey circus banner. Or a 50lb canvas tent (one of these magnificent bastards picked up for a steal on craigslist last summer.)

Now, I don’t rock out a massive reflective yurt filled with animal skins and handmade wooden furniture, or bring my entire queen bed and self-engineered shower stall with me (though I’ve bunked with people who do), so I consider myself on the modest side of glamping. And I’ve never been out of civilization long enough to need more than my basics+some frippery for comfort- until now. There are three dance/circus festivals I want to hit up out of town, two of which I’ll be doing infrastructure creation for in the woods. It’ll be about three weeks living out of my tent at the Lookout Arts Circus Quarry in Bellingham, possibly longer, and I’ve decided to upgrade my living situation somewhat before I hit the road.

Over the new two weeks, I’m going to be working on my new essentials- bits and pieces of camping that are in no way necessary to survive in the woods, but allow me to do things like sprawl out in my folding chair in the mornings in a black silk robe (today’s Goodwill score) and pour myself a cup of cold-brew tea (plastic tea pot) while my solar fairy lights flicker off for the day (Harbor Freight, dirt cheap solar lighting).

The biggest project is going to be doing some big canvas paintings to attach to the sides of my otherwise boring green tent. Updates and pictures of this whole lifestyle upgrade to happen as it evolves in the backyard.

Hello, friends!  Today my friends in Turkey launched their crowdfunding campaign to support the social circus school in which I am currently working as a trainer.  If alternative education and social justice are of interest to you, please share and consider making even a small donation.  The work being done here is unbelievably wonderful, and the potential of having the resources to expand our programs, afford necessary safety equipment for our classes, and renovate the school building is very exciting.
