I Can Keep Going was drawn by Robert (19) with writing by Michelle (12). What stands out in this piece for me is the brick wall on the shoulders of the largest figure. We are feeling a lot of pressure right now. I like how Michelle processes things: This is how I feel. This is […]
My neighbor has Schizophrenia. A different neighbor says it’s not a mental illness but that he has demons. She inaccurately applied Scripture, which I quickly corrected, but its still on my mind and still bothers me. She has no idea what comments like that do to a person with a mental illness. Though I corrected […]
Finding artwork created by alter personalities used to happen quite a bit. I thought it was strictly a thing of the past but I guess I was wrong. It would seem that I still find art I don’t know a thing about. I was quite shocked to see the piece called My Sister in the […]

Journaling until I’m blue in the face. Work in progress. “Someone Else” in watercolor and acrylic. All work shown is on 8.5 x 5.5 paper. “Froggie Smiles”. These are photographs. I’m looking forward to scanning so these look right. This is much darker than the actual painting. I’m working on the details of all these […]
The last few days have been torture. I hurt from the top of my head to the soles of my feet. The amputation site is having an electric storm of shock and neuropathy. It’s been a bad few days and I’ve done very little reaching out. I’ve just been waiting for medication time! The foot […]
