Weird Photos

Every once in awhile strange images show up with absolutely no explanation attached. Well the nuts at Explain This Image have a whole collection of such wonders. Below are some of my favorites.
Why isn't the lion driving, for example?
Is black the best color for this goat to wear?
Does this happen to ALL eighth grade science teachers?

I've been blogging diligently at In the meantime I have been avoiding making my usual 'real' art, and have only this to show for a month long hiatus. I drew it while waiting for a rain shower to end so my friend Lindy and I could take to the trails of Eastern KY on wonderfully willing KY Mountain Horses.

Biology + Old Belief

My biological father was a fictional character because that is who he chose to be. Early on, he inserted this sharp tipped caricature of himself into his wife and three daughters. We each took it in and have given it safe harbor longer than has been healthy for any of us.

Yesterday I booted my copy out and in so doing set us all free; me, the spiny sharp unhappy cartoon and whatever was leftover of the original pure spirit my now deceased father was bron with and quelled through his own marred decisions.

Are there gifts in abuse? Did it make me more compassionate? More empathetic? Stronger? Did it have the opposite effect on my father? Does the balance sheet show 'zero'?

What my father and some other adults in our lives in the 1960's did by looking the other way was unhealthy. They created their own fog of regret that has lingered taking various shapes, creating miscellaneous pathways this far into the future.

However the transformation I experienced yesterday by literally and figuratively eliminating the quietly persistent toxic residuals from those days through deep tissue release, energy realignment and mental imagery has suddenly allowed me to assign those far away experiences a visual depiction -- allowing it to come out into the open, assume a shape that may now be transformed and reabsorbed by the universe no longer needing to hide within me, no longer needing to be held and protected but allowed to disburse and try again, accompanied by my hope that my father's deep wounds find healing in this release and hurt no more.

Who helped me accomplish this long overdue task? A wonderful intuitive healer. She uses a method that's sort of like message and sort of like reiki, or a combination of these methods - coupled with large doses of humor.

Yes - No - Maybe

My friend is having a discussion with herselves about an important acquisition. This sketch is meant to depict how these things usually go.

A typical decision making process can be challenging on the best of days and downright stifling when it's something huge.

It's easier when you know it revolves around loving what IS, CAN and SHALL be!

Satellite Offices

My fun friend, Marina, and I just spent several weeks working together connected by our ichats. It was a great way to be able to have the experience of sharing an office, a project and all the related benefits of being in the same room minus being able to share snacks. We laughed. We sang, told jokes and banged our heads together at the same when when necessary to accomplish a particularly difficult coding issue. We decided we love these modern new conveniences.
After too many hours though, things always seemed to deteriorate. This is when we had to perk back up with chocolate.

Kitty Cat Info

This is info from my kitty. He's not very serious, which is a trait I appreciate.
