Are you happy? Were you happy as a child? Do you know how to be truly happy? 🥰 Emotions are intrinsic, and must be created from within. Happiness is something you become.

What in the hell would I do, on those days when my head spins and spins with shit I can’t control, without art to distract me? I would definitely be on lock down somewhere, just sayin’. It’s also a good reminder. We can thank God for our creativity on the days when we can’t findContinue reading “Drawing is the perfect distraction!”

These are my drawings in response to the cards in my Inner Child Artist deck. It’s hard to say which I prefer: the initial imagery or the elicited imagery… Inner Child Artist was created over the many YEARS I spent teaching elementary art. Much of the imagery is from art projects that I facilitated andContinue reading “Inner Child Artist: The How’s and Why’s”
My son sings it. And he’s so good. I love it. I think it’s important. And beautiful. ❤️
Life really is like the Wheel of Fortune. Things that go down always come back up again. That is a good and a bad thing. Either way… it’s a thing.

I officially have the prototype and I am in the process of writing the guidebook with my nondominant hand in order to tap into the spirit of my inner child. The thoughts that are coming out of my pen are unbeknownst to me until I pull the card and let my inner child write freely.Continue reading “INNER CHILD, ARTIST”
On the evening of my dad’s death, I was drawing. I was practicing facial expressions, like I do every night, and I usually throw them away, but this night was different. What I drew on this night reminded me of what I gave my dad for Father’s Day last year… it had similar faces, butContinue reading “Art therapy is the shit, (if anything is at this point…)”
My dad has been in ICU for a week now. He has to a have a defibrillater implanted into his heart tomorrow morning, while his blood pressure stays at a very low rate. I’m worried.
