Lyrics, poetry and art all meshed together

Wednesday, December 24, 2008



A world without art? Hmmmmmm, it would be impossible to wake up one day without colors,without movement...a day without pens, pencils or brushes.

Can't imagine art not being mentioned by people, it would be a total discrimination. I love the playfulness of it, take a pen or pencil and run with it like poetry...the intimacy of it add a je ne sais crois.


So, I bought myself another sketch book (#4 now) and poured so much of my thoughts into it. I want to use it more like an art album for my daughter, she will appreciate it when she gets older i'm sure. She is catching up with me now, writing her little heart out and drawing...keeping journals like I used to when I was her age. I started at 8 and now I have over 100 journals from 1986 until now.





Three months ago if you would have asked me to take pictures, I would have looked at you funny and run, lol


The challenge I have with lupus is that one day I feel great, the next i'm sluggish and can barely move out of the bed, but the change of weather helps a lot. The sun comes out and i'm happy, I'm into flower and trees, I feel they speak to us daily, if only we take the time to listen to them. My mother's scented roses in her front yard are so natural, it drizzled two days ago and they slowly opened up to say hello to us.


I took a peak and thanked all of them for their introduction.







Another sunny day...

Great photos. And KEEP all your journals - they'll be worth a fortune one day. In dollars, that is - worth so much already to an artist.
