"I was nothing but a smear upon the floor..." Day 29 of #NaPoWriMo #art #poetry #MotherEarth

 . When she came, I was nothing but a smear upon the floor.. Her mission was to rescue me, her goal, was to restore.. All that I used to be, all that had been before… . But I did not deserve her attention or her special love.. I was an empty void of…

"The Night can be too Quiet..." A bit of #art and a #poem for #NaPoWriMo Day 23

 . The night can be too quiet From beneath the covers of my grandmother’s quilt I listen… . What was that soft shick-shick? Was that a spider crawling across the ceiling? My heart beats… . What was that metallic scrab-clink? Was that a masked stranger…

Work
Occupation
Artist... writer... parent... one who struggles through life and tries not to complain to much...
Skills
The ability to be creative with whatever is at hand. To laugh when I want to cry and to keep on walking when my feet hurt.
Employment
  • Ozmorrhiza Arts Studio
    present
    I create improvisational art; drawings, sculptures, paintings, photographs and performance. I write poetry for those who wish to hear my thoughts. I write fiction for those who want to hear my stories. Occasionally I may make sounds that could be considered music, and move my body through space in a dance like way. The rest of the time, I am helping others to solve creative conundrums and placing myself in service to the community.

Introduction
Artist working in improvisational art... photography, drawing, words and more....

..... ask me what I do... and it may change from day to day, but I am always seeking to share what is in my head or heart at any given moment. 

Bragging rights?.... well, I'm still alive......... .......................................................................Oh, and I once jumped off the tallest mountain in Europe with an irate Frenchwoman on my back...

Occupation?.... Yes, I'm definitely occupied! 
I make art... I tell stories... I create a world for my children to inhabit...  I laugh as much as possible. 

I'm involved in many rotating projects... I am working on my first novel... may the PTB have mercy on my literary soul....
