A Protective Walk

One of my collages from a few months ago. At first I thought this person was in a space suit but now I realize he’s in an outfit that resembles a bee keeper. But today, more than anything, it feels like someone taking the necessary precautions to reenter the world during COVID-19. Stay safe.   Continue reading A Protective Walk

How You Gonna Win…

Yesterday I started a new collage notebook which means I actually finished my first book, something I didn’t think I’d be able to do. I have a tendency to start things and, well, never finish them. I have plenty of half filled notebooks around the house and when I started to feel the pull to … Continue reading How You Gonna Win…

I didn’t reply with any hidden meaning or explanation, … Continue reading That One Makes Me Sad

I’m ready for the weather to break and for us to have a true fall season and … Continue reading Get Into Music

Driving Distractions

My twin sons passed their drivers exams last week and today was the first day they drove to school and back without an adult in the car.
