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

    Loved you for many years and you always inspire, teach how to be a great citizen, woman, friend, artist, actor and advocate. A type of mentor in the wing you are.
    I listened to ONCE on youtube and it was fantastic! Just joy, and fabulous music! I
    am so glad you are healing and getting healthy and that your partner is doing well too.
    Much respect and in solidarity,
    (from my heart it’s true, and not just because of the question I asked you….the one a day, for true!) 🙂
