I have been processing so long (60+ years) I kinda forget that trauma caused a dis/associative disorder I still haveand I do catch myself pretty fast if I seem to fall into the old mindset.  Does anyone else realize that being adopted by strangers is mind-altering? (Perhaps that is why cruelty and torture has been used for centuries.)

Following my whim, I make folders on my computer for named projects for all the different “me’s” and when it’s time I try and make them into something in a word document.  No judgementI just do it. This works for me:  Follow your WHIM.  Follow whatever the whim  tells youmake art, create something.  Don’t judge yourself.  Yeah, it’s hard. Try harder.


Layers of Time

In 1965, artist Roman Opałka began painting ‘time’ from 1 to infinity.  As he progressed, each canvas was lightened 1%, resulting in purely white-on-white pieces by 2007.  The final number Opałka painted was on August 6, 2011, the day of his death: 5607249.

We are not bad timing… we chose this and we wanted to be here… right now…right here.  We want to see this…

The Hopi have a saying “now is the time, we are the ones we have been waiting for…”  Read it again:  The Hopi have a saying “NOW is the time, WE are the ones we have been waiting for…” Trust Your INTUITION. This is not a mistake. We’re balancing many lifetimes.

A new abnormal: It is still two minutes to midnight

No matter how we use our eyes, we still need to use our hearts to decide everything we do.  Trace Lara Hentz 



Since the election in November 02016 and inauguration of January 20, 02017, we have moved into a new time zone:  the Twilight Zone.

And the Doomsday Clock just moved again in 2018.



There are some Americans who sincerely thought a game show host could run America.  Some voters that I know personally wanted to see things blow up.

I have friends that are literally scared for their lives now.

I think NOW they realize how they were:  Bigly wrong.

Drain the Swamp? Try bulldozing.

I don’t think a narcissistic celebrity has enough knowledge to be the president of anything.


…except Denzel – he can be anything
