-yaelaed (growth and coffee)

start in the middle and go in swirls
overwhelming digital memories
RAM is such a beautiful collection of sounds. 

I've been light on time but heavy on wealth. 
gray skies stop being poetic after a week
but I let the yearning quiet

presence presents itself
dear god, do i need to move more
i don't like social or media

 i like books and drawing and painting and listening to music
and i cant find any good new music
my earbuds prick
roses don't make sounds
but i bet they sound like chainsaws

gemini souls unite like sailor scouts
i want those green boots
i find it so precious to be called monsters daily

my mouth only wants edamame
my eyes; the growth of green
the cream of coffee
the soft ears
the windchimes i never buy

my songs are silent

and why is dirt a derogatory term?

Celebrations and Hopes

Hey beautiful flim flams.
Life has been filled with transitions and celebrations as of late. 
First, I put in my two weeks notice at the retirement community I worked at, which was a huge decision and felt quit scary and momentous.
Then I finally got a new job at Best Western. 
Oh, and my artwork was published in Dawn DeVries Sokol's book, A World of Artist Journal Pages!

 And I finished my first e-book for IGNITE which was a mad rush that I finished at 4 a.m. and I'm so proud of it and the two paintings I made for it. 
And I had my last day at my old job and the first day at my new job. 
And the weather hasn't been cold and I've gotten some good free food at the food bank, so I feel pretty light lately. 

And I've been using the app Diana to create some double exposure pictures and I am in love with the results and this app! 

I hope you are all well. Stay weird. Get weirder. 
Be blessed.
