Green Summer Nights

In the end, part of the joy of being successful is that you rose from a struggle  --Patti Smith
Struggle, huh, I got that part covered, still working on the successful part - anyhoo, this is a study in blues and greens, another book cover I painted, centerpiece in green is polymer clay, always fall in love with the raggedy shapes that come out of the pasta machine, irresistible color blends and thinking about the green summer nights that lie ahead once I've survived moving out of this hellacious terrible place into a new life, it's not much longer but miles to go, miles to go.... and your thoughts of encouragement are so very appreciated, many thanks

Gearing Up

Gearing up with this painting and now another adventure packing up to move to a new residence where my heart can be happy again. Current residence was an experiment that didn't work and has driven me mad and nearly sick and cannot stay here anymore so off to a New Start, Big Beginning, another Act in the Play. Another chance to see exactly how much Stuff I have, lighten the load again and take only what's needed for  focus Focus FOCUS on my heart's most cherished desires. Should lead to alot of new art but first there's all that packing, omg so many books, a Library, and most will come with me while a few old friends will wander off to the local bookstore to be traded for other treasures and so it goes . . .

Book of Dots

Book of Dots and thinking about going around in circles and confusion and choices to be made and it just spirals out of control sometimes it's just

Round, like a circle in a spiral
Like a wheel within a wheel.
Never ending or beginning, 
On an ever spinning wheel
Like a snowball down a mountain
Or a carnival balloon
Like a carousel that's turning
Running rings around the moon
And the world is like an apple
Whirling silently in space
Like the circles that you find
In the windmills of your mind
Windmills of Your Mind by Sting

High Hopes

Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Dragged by the force of some inner tide

At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
There's a hunger still unsatisfied
--High Hopes by Pink Floyd
