Hi everyone,

Today’s guest post comes from Cookie:

Hi

My name is Cookie, and I’m a 5 year old domestic semi-long-haired (DSLH) fluffy lad.

The first two years of my life were very mixed: my first human after leaving my mum was an older gentleman, who although well intentioned couldn’t play with me as much as I wanted, so I spent a lot of time with a family down the road. When the old gentleman died, the family didn’t want me, so I went into a rescue center run a lovely but elderly lady, so also sadly died, and I was moved on to another rescue home. No human who came round wanted to take me home from there, so I was moved to yet another rescue center.

It was at that third rescue place that my human (Andy – CynicYorksman) found me and took me home, where I really…

Hello Recovery Friends, Blog Friends, and Welcome New Visitors,

I happen to receive the monthly newsletter from my helpful friends at The National Alliance on Mental Illness. And as many of my friends here know, I battle several mental and emotional disorders myself. And for me the topic of Suicide is a hard subject for me because of my own 2 failed suicides. Yes, I’m blessed and have a heart filled of Gratitude to still be here, but the flip side to this is being able to feel others pain when I read about others and suicide.

To me it is such a senseless loss of precious life. We are all born with such great abilities to soar in life, but sadly the society we live in today can make that an everyday challenge. Even the high stress levels of many jobs can bare to much for some…

In the Dust of this Earth


Dust in the Wind….

All we are is Dust in the Wind……

Rings of Saturn
Rings of Saturn

We are Stardust fallen from Heaven.

Returning to Mother Earth to be scattered across the oceans, seas, plains……taken up by the wind once more.  Galaxies. Sand. Soil. Swirling rings around Saturn Whirlpools of Atlantis Solar systems of revolving doors.

In the Dust of this orbital sphere are seeds and spores of generations yet untold. Stories to be written and songs to be sung. Poesy hanging by vineyard climbing ivy searching for fertile ground in which to take root and bloom.  You are the pitter patter of dew arising with great tear droplets falling to moss and leaf covered ground.  Take hold my Luna branches and spring forth from sweet tender Gaia into renewed awakenings.

Foliage covering preternatural forest an ancient womb delivering sustenance to all flora and fauna. You are the scent of a damp summer’s night. She suckles her young with tender shoots Arboreal Splendor to behold. Goddesses arise and walk about restoring the vanquished, quenching all thirsts birthing new lives.

Snowstorm Juno Brooklyn, New York Jan. 2015


Snowstorm Juno NYC. These were taken within a two block radius of my house. Fulton Street, Rockaway Avenue & Hull Street between 5:30 am and 6:00am. The MTA worker shoveling in front of my train station probably thought I was nuts. I told him that I was taking photos of the closed subway station for my job.

Yes I will brave almost any weather for my art!! Feeling exhilarated and invigorated!!
