tomorrow i go to OZ

i thought i would be breast cancer that got me
like it did my mom
heart attack ?
never worried about it


heart disease kills more women than men
233,00 a year
every 20 seconds a woman has a heart attack in america
50% of deaths happen in the first hour

all of this will be discussed
when mish and i film DR OZ
an amazing man

the tale of r last 6 months
a desmoid tumor – a heart attack
perhaps r story
will help some

off to get a mani
with viv


ONCE is blasting
on repeat
the sun is shining
i am painting on my wall

watched so many docs
on apple tv
good god i love that thing
buy it if u can

there waiting for u to ingest
24 hours a day

i remember waiting for the sound of music
to play on tv
ONCE a year
and now this – instant everything

ONCE is beautiful
cracked my heart right open
as it grew bigger still
the bulls eye

feel this
life challenges
love death faith

the woodman’s on netflix
please watch it
and let me know
if it haunted u too

i bought this Zentangle kit
very good tool
for those wanting to doodle
but fearing they cannot

there r no mistakes in art
only small repeat patterns
that grow in significance
as they multiply

went to a wedding yesterday
with my wife
we held hands in the street
i am walking on moonbeams

if u r in love –
i know tickets r expensive
but please run there

sit in a velvet seat
notice the theater ceiling
get ready to receive
full blast

off 2 paint

no school day

looking up

did my first round of blood tests
things r looking up
my good cholesterol is too low
what the …

didn’t think that was possible
but apparently it is
i am at 31 and need to get to 40
i can do that

diet and exercise
use it or lose it
who u gonna serve
now or never

many things have shifted
this last month
each decision weighed
choose and then choose again

to become ur own protective presence
not easy for us humans
tend to self

i find i like alison pill
so much more
since her top free tweet
something about her smile

i knew whoever she was thinking of
would be warmed
by the image clicked open
young and in love

i never had that kind of courage

so now tending to my body
a new mountain to climb
a place to return to
pre shame

kids r back in school
2 away – 2 still here
life feels familiar again
a rhythm i know well

the parking line for school pick up
is the best place to practice calm
as i try to decrease stress
in all ways

so many have been so kind
grabbing my hand –
“i am so happy u r ok ”
warms me

thank u
thank u
thank u
