In 2014 I was asked by a friend to go on a hike to red rock. To me, hiking still meant getting a giant latte at the coffee bean, wearing high-heeled cowboy boots, and driving the loop. I met my friend and her yoga teacher pal that was in town from England for the past three months but flying out to India forever tomorrow. His voice was so clipped. He had these mustard yellow Adidas on with red stripes and mismatched neon socks, giant aviators. I was terrified of him, or more so of how I imagined he saw me (as a dumb American.)
But the three of us went to the rocks. Later he will tell me I was so cool. Like Ali Sheedy. I feel like that beyond space and time we agreed to meet at those rocks again before we came here. After showing him red rock we went to Black Bear Diner where I had a coke and a giant bear claw, covered in butter, while he picked at a salad. That day, I had no idea what had happen to my life. Really it was like doubling spiritually. That is why the painting is larger. That random meeting, being at the right place, at the right time, for the right reasons, is why I have the life I have today. I believe Red Rock orchestrated that.
