14 July 2018 Inception

Hello to you.  Just a quick note before I get breakfast started.  Not sure the painting on canvas is going to happen today.  We have lots of chores to do today and my butt is dragging a bit.  May be tomorrow?!  Part of the reason I’m so tired is just before falling asleep last night there was a loud explosion like someone set off a firework right in the middle of the street.  I was so pissed!  Not good to try to go to sleep mad.  It was hard to go back to sleep after that.  We found out this morning the sound we heard was someone hitting our neighbors truck!  UGH!

Then there were all the dreams I had that made me think of the movie Inception – dreams within dreams.  I’m with the Kyle I know but I’m like a person within a person as I lay next to him.  Then there is a man with dark hair and dark eyes telling me, “I have work to do.” Then all the sudden I’m in something like a fight scene in a movie on a train with stuff flying everywhere.  Another was of going to a beach that was all vibrant with a lot of teal green going on.  There were seals and I could see a life guard.  Then that same scene was devoid of color, of seals and the life guard – it was all washed out, cloudy and drab.   When my brain is running like that, I don’t wake up feeling very rested.   I guess my dreams are a reflection of the influx of random stuff I’ve been putting in my head via television, movies and internet.

Hello to you – hope this finds you well today.  It’s a holiday for us here in the states.  We plan to celebrate with family – cook out and visit.  My favorite part of any holiday is sharing good food and catching up with people I haven’t seen in awhile!

Holidays are a time to express a micro version of what the world could be but isn’t quite yet – one big family.  World unity is probably a word to chalk up to the ancient dreams of Utopia but definitely a prize to seek.  It is a vision I’ve always had to see the celebration of all our differences.  The people of this world working as a family.  Each bringing their unique pieces of thread and fabric to construct the world quilt.  For all the ways we are different, there are so many more ways we are just the same.

The spin of the World Prayer wheel gave me this, I think it’s beautiful.  I had to read it through aloud more than once as the language style is not what I’m used to reading or writing: 

A faintish journey do I make
As through this frazzled world I wind,
With heavy heart and weary steps,
But with determined mind.

Beseech I for a flicker of
The faith than can a mountain move,
And hold that tenet close to me,
Believing where I cannot prove.

The pow’r that comes when sinking low
To man who grasps for straw or rope,
Will clutch til has he breath no more
For where there’s life, there’s hope.

If my good turn be given to
My fellow man’s deficiency,
I’ll try to share my lowly gifts
Of Faith and Hope and Charity.

My deepest condolences to Tina Turner at the loss of her son Craig.  No mother should have to lose her child this way.


Tina Turner’s eldest son, Craig Raymond Turner, has died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

TMZ reported that authorities arrived at Craig’s Studio City, Calif., home around noon on July 3 and found his body.

Craig, 59, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was in the real estate business in the Los Angeles area.

Craig was born in 1958 when his famous mother was 18 years old. His biological father is a musician named Raymond Hill. After Tina married Ike Turner, Ike adopted Craig as his own.

Tina is currently in Paris attending events associated with Paris Fashion Week events. On Tuesday, she stepped out for the Giorgio Armani Prive Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2018-2019 show.

2 June 2018 Light in the Dark (drawing) and Contemplation On No-Coming and No-Going (Thich nhat hanh)

Hi there.  It’s been a hot Saturday afternoon, like 98 degrees,  but I still managed to spend some time out with my chalks!  It’s always nice when the sun moves over to the front side of the house so we have shade out back lol.

This drawing seems to be about approaching a beam of light in the dark.  What comes to me is you have to proceed with caution when on such a quest!  I can remember what one of my doctor’s told me when I handed him a two pieces of orgonite I had made.  One was clear and had dandelions in it and the other was very dark blue and you couldn’t really see through it.  He chose the piece with the dandelions over the other one.  He told me he didn’t care for the dark blue one because he couldn’t see through it.  It made him think of how he felt about a dark room.  He said, “It’s not the dark that I’m afraid of, it’s what is in the dark that worries me.”  Yep!

Hope you have a great rest of the weekend!

2 June 2018 – This drawing is kind of the opposite of a drawing/painting I did before where someone was emerging from a cave lol. Now we are going in to check out a mysterious light in the shadows. Sometimes it’s hard to find light in the darkness.

http://www.worldprayers.org/prayerwheel/index.html – I spun the prayer wheel a couple of times and this beautiful verse came up to share

This body is not me.
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I have never died.

Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my wondrous true mind.

Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.

So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.

We meet today.
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet at the source every moment.
We meet each other in all forms of life.

27 May 2018 Not forgotten continued – Songwriting With Soldiers (Darden Smith)

Hello to you.  How are you doing  in your where and when as you visit me here?  I hope well.  I have been having kind of a dry spell with creativity lately but blossoming out in other ways through support groups on Facebook etc.  This afternoon I did this drawing which is dedicated to all the fallen across the globe to war and conflict.

27 May 2018 – In honor of Memorial Day for all those who have sacrificed themselves hoping to make this world a better place.

As I finished the drawing, I got to thinking about healing and the Daily Good site came through for me with this wonderful article about a program that helps heal soldiers through music and songwriting!  A couple of years ago I had a sort of dream about a program I wanted to call Healing for Hero’s.   I wanted to provide integrated, holistic healing for soldiers, police, fire department and first responders at no cost to them.  My idea was too big for me to handle and never formally materialized but I have seen my intention manifesting through others in many ways.  Songwriting with Soldiers, using the healing power of music, is a beautiful example of my dream to help those who give of themselves in these ways.

Songwriting With Soldiers

–by David Conrads, syndicated from truthatlas.com, Aug 20, 2014

Darden Smith Listens, Strums a Bit, Then Helps Soldiers Write Their Song

This story first appeared on the Christian Science Monitor.

SongwritingWith:Soldiers provides a healthy emotional outlet. The songs help others facing similar challenges and build a bridge between military service and civilian life.

By David Conrads

BELTON, TEXAS — It’s a warm, clear morning just outside Temple, Texas. Darden Smith sits down after breakfast with his guitar and his laptop, as he often does, to write a song. In a career that spans nearly 30 years, the native Texan and longtime Austin, Texas, resident has written and co-written innumerable songs, recorded 14 albums, and performed all over the world.

This morning, Mr. Smith is collaborating with Marsha Cook, who has never written a song in her life. In fact, she neither sings nor plays a musical instrument.

Smith and Ms. Cook make an unlikely songwriting team. But similar collaborations are happening this morning in the lodge and all around the grounds of the Cedarbrake Renewal Center in central Texas, where SongwritingWith:Soldiers, a nonprofit organization Smith founded, is hosting a weekend-long retreat.

The concept is simple: Pair military veterans and active-duty troops with professional songwriters in a tranquil setting. Then let the service members tell their stories while the songwriters mold those stories into lyrics and set them to music.

The hope is that the songwriting will provide a healthy emotional outlet for the service members, and the resulting songs will be a source of pride, a help to others facing similar challenges, and a bridge in the gap between military service and civilian life.

Cook tells her story while Smith types some notes, strums his guitar, and asks questions. Mostly, he just listens.

An Army veteran and homemaker, Cook spent decades as a military spouse, raising six children and dealing with a variety of mental and emotional challenges, many of them connected to war-related traumas suffered by her husband.

As Cook talks, themes emerge from her experiences, and Smith begins shaping her words into lyrics. Georgia Middleman, a veteran of the Nashville music scene and one of the other four songwriters at the retreat, joins them.

RELATED: From Warrior to Artist: How Soldiers are Tapping Into Unimagined Creativity

In about an hour, the three have crafted a sweet, catchy song in the classic country style of Kitty Wells or Loretta Lynn. Cook beams as Smith plays “The Woman in Me” and Ms. Middleman sings its two verses and a bridge. “It’s wonderful,” Cook says when the two finish. “It really captures all the things I have been feeling all these years.”

“We all have a story,” Smith says later. “When we listen, and listen well enough to take the soldiers’ words and turn them into art, and sing it back to them, something happens. What it is, I don’t know. I’m a songwriter, not a therapist. But something happens, and it’s powerful.”

In the two years since founding SongwritingWith:Soldiers, nearly 100 soldiers have participated in weekend retreats, as well as similar one- and two-day on-site sessions held at US Department of Veterans Affairs centers, military hospitals, and other locations. Several hundred songs have been written and recorded so that each participating service member has something tangible to take away from the experience.

All the songs are registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers. The service members share the writing credits: This ensures that they will share in any potential royalties generated by their work.

For Smith, SongwritingWith:Soldiers is the culmination of years of collaborative songwriting with people who aren’t songwriters. In 2003, he launched the Be An Artist Program, classroom workshops for children intended to inspire creativity through a series of exercises and a group songwriting session. Smith has taken the Be An Artist Program to some 15,000 children across the United States and Western Europe.

“Songwriting is a great way to get people to tell their stories,” he says. “The Be An Artist Program showed me that you can write a song with people who don’t write songs. It prepared me for writing songs with soldiers.”

A chance meeting with a soldier following a performance in a military hospital cafeteria in Landstuhl, Germany, inspired Smith to engage with members of the military, a segment of the population with whom he previously felt he had no connection. In 2008, he and Radney Foster wrote “Angel Flight,” a song about the Air National Guard crews that fly home the bodies of fallen soldiers. The strong response to the song from the military opened up an opportunity for Smith to try out collaborative songwriting with wounded soldiers at a retreat in Colorado under the auspices of an organization, now defunct, that helped soldiers transition to civilian life.

Mary Judd, a childhood friend with experience in program development, accompanied him. The collaborative songwriting with the service members was a resounding success. “We were amazed at how open and trusting the soldiers were with their stories and experiences,” says Ms. Judd, who now serves as executive director of SongwritingWith:Soldiers. “A connection and a trust came about pretty quickly, as well as a need for the soldiers to tell their stories. We could see that it was really helpful.”

When the group in Colorado dissolved, Smith and Judd established SongwritingWith:Soldiers, holding their first retreat in 2012.

We all have a story. When we listen, and listen well enough to take the soldiers’ words and turn them into art, and sing it back to them, something happens.

Stacy Pearsall was an aerial combat photographer in the Air Force until she was medically retired in 2010 following her second injury from an improvised explosive device in Iraq.

She wrote a song with Smith at the retreat in Colorado and has returned to SongwritingWith:Soldiers as a participant, photographer, and unofficial mentor. She holds the distinction of being the very first service member to have co-written a song in the program.

“There was a lot of sensitive stuff discussed, things I hadn’t talked about with anybody,” she says of that first collaborative session. “I’m not going to spill my guts to a complete stranger, but I related to Darden because he was genuinely interested in listening to me. Sometimes that’s just what we need, someone with an open ear who is not passing judgment.”

Ms. Pearsall adds that the songwriting provides a valuable framework for the soldiers to tell their stories and share their deep – sometimes deeply repressed – feelings.

Karen Vandiver, a therapist in Texas who specializes in trauma and has worked extensively with military veterans, says that the collaborative songwriting is a form of emotional release. She recommends SongwritingWith:Soldiers to many of her clients, having attended several of the retreats and seen the benefits firsthand. “I believe respect is the highest form of love, and this is about respect for the soldiers’ stories and respect for who they are,” she says. “It’s also a validation that somebody else cares. Of course, this is not the end of the process, but it is something that soldiers and veterans can build on.”

Chris Chirco participated in a retreat with SongwritingWith:Soldiers in the spring of 2013. The US Army infantryman spent 11 months in the Wardak Province of Afghanistan, one of the most violent and contested parts of the country.

“I saw some crazy stuff,” Mr. Chirco says with ironic understatement. Back home, diagnosed with a variety of traumas, he began drinking heavily and “spiraling out of control” until he met an Army chaplain at Fort Hood, Texas, who helped him turn his life around. He soon connected with SongwritingWith:Soldiers. At the retreat he worked with Smith and co-wrote three songs.

Chirco still tears up when he listens to his song “I’m Not Supposed to Be Here,” which touches on everything from his accidental conception to his survivor’s guilt. “The songwriters take the worst thing that has ever happened to you and turn it into something beautiful,” he says. “The experience energized me and really set me back on the path to healing.”

While service members attend the retreat voluntarily, some are slow to open up, especially to a civilian. But Smith’s approach of quiet listening has never failed him.

“I’ve never had a soldier not get involved once they saw that we are actually listening, actually paying attention,” he says.

of our sisters and brothers with respect and attention.

Open our hearts to the cries of a suffering world
and the healing melodies of peace and justice for all creation.

Empower us to be instruments of justice
and equality everywhere.

26 May 2018 Not Forgotten

This post is about remembering and being grateful for what we have.  It’s so easy to take the people, places and things of this life for granted.   Last night I started reading Vampire Hunter D books again and came across one of my favorite phrases in it, page 70 – “Transient Guests Are We.”   Indeed, we are guests and the Earth, our Mother, the hostess.

8 Sept 2012 – Hope emerges. Thought of this drawing with the message from the World Prayers site.

21 Dec 2017 New bands (Zales) and Reptilicus (1961 Danish-American giant monster film about a prehistoric reptile)

Hello.  How are you?  I’m doing o.k.  It’s been kind of an emotional few days for me.  Christmas as an adult has always been tricky for me and as I get older it gets more and more so.  I did write Christmas cards this year and we bought a couple of things, but we didn’t put up the tree or any lights outside like in years past.  Our gift to each other this year is replacement wedding bands as Kyle split his in half a few months ago!  I don’t think it was a need but we wanted them.   We should have them in time for our “real” anniversary which is 31 Dec.

20 Dec 2017 – We got these at Zales.  The ring on the left is Kyle’s new band made of Tungsten Carbide and mine with Celtic weave is stainless steel. The white gold bands we had just didn’t hold up and Kyle corrodes sterling silver.

We “need” to replace our side fence.  The neighbor dogs reminded me this morning by busting yet another hole in the rotten thing!  I’m amazed the damn thing is still holding up at all anymore lol!   That will be the big expense for the next outage if our neighbors don’t decide to do it sooner.

11 Oct 2017 – As you can see, several methods by the neighbors and ourselves are currently being employed to try and keep the dogs out of our yard until either one of us can afford to truly fix the fence.

Last night’s Mystery Science Theater 3000 movie was the Danish-American film Reptilicus.  We managed to watch the whole thing.  Kyle and I both felt like it was a bit like watching Dracula in a way….just a huge reptile instead.   We are really enjoying the latest installments of the MSTK3000!

Reptilicus – Trailer


Reptilicus is a 1961 Danish-American giant monster film about a prehistoric reptile. The film was produced by American International Pictures and Saga Studio, and separate versions were released in Denmark and in the United States.

The original Danish-language version was directed by Danish director Poul Bang and released in Denmark on February 25, 1961.

The American version, which was in English with a nearly identical cast, was directed by the film’s American producer-director Sidney W. Pink; this version was initially deemed virtually unreleasable by American International Pictures and had to be extensively reworked by the film’s Danish-American screenwriter, Ib Melchior, before being finally released in America in 1962. Pink was angry at the changes and wound up in a legal dispute with AIP.[1] After Pink and others viewed the English-language version, the lawsuit was dropped.[2]

21 Dec 2017 – Drawing this afternoon.

God to surround me,

God in my lips,
God in my soul,
God in my heart.

God in my sufficing,

God in mine ever-living soul,

7 Sept 2017 Full (Drawing) and Footprints

Hello to you.  It’s 9:01 am on this deliciously cool Thursday morning – definitely starting to feel like fall here!  We had morning temperatures in our area between 50 and 60 degrees!

My being has been in a prayer space a lot lately – so many things going on in the affairs of men and nature!  I am left wondering if the answer to my prayers for the greatest, most loving good for this Earth is what we have before us.   The forces of Earth becoming the stern voice of God,  speaking to us in such a manner we are forced to stop and listen.   Will those who insist on ignoring what is happening to the Earth’s systems finally pay attention?  I wonder….

(The God of my understanding is pure energy,  so I was curious to see how much energy is in a hurricane)

“The energy produced is measured by the amount of water produced by the hurricane and its subsequent condensation — the measurement is called the “latent heat of condensation.”. An average hurricane produces about a half inch (1.27 centimeters) of rain each day in an area about 825 miles (1,328 kilometers) across.”



Nothing that is worth doing can be achieved in our lifetime;
therefore, we must be saved by hope.

Nothing which is true or beautiful or good makes complete sense in any immediate context of history;
therefore, we must be saved by faith.

Nothing we do, however virtuous, could be accomplished alone;
therefore, we must be saved by love.

No virtuous act is quite as virtuous from the standpoint of our friend or foe as it is from our own standpoint;
therefore, we must be saved by the final form of love, which is forgiveness.

29 Aug 2017 Feelings in chalk

 Hello to you.  It’s 10:32 on this damp, yet sunny North Texas morning.  I am feeling better inside than I was yesterday and that is partially due to just getting the rest I needed.  The other thing was expressing my inner feelings in chalk.  The sky apparently couldn’t stand looking at it and promptly washed it away shortly after I completed it LOL!

28 Aug 2017 – channeling my inner angst out into chalk

Apparently Hurricane Harvey is now headed for Louisiana and I pray for those folks – hope they have prepared.  We are in strange times, at many levels aren’t we?  It’s important to find healthy outlets for what is going on inside of us and out.


At the center of the universe is a
loving heart that continues to beat
and that wants the best for every person.

Anything we can do to help foster
the intellect and spirit and emotional growth
of our fellow human beings, that is our job.

Those of us who have this particular vision
must continue against all odds.

Life is for service.

Beyond the Invisible

I look into the mirror
See myself, I’m over me
I need space for my desires
Have to dive into my fantasies
I know as soon as I’ll arrive
Everything is possible
Cause no one has to hide
Beyond the invisible

Close your eyes
Just feel and realize
It is real and not a dream
I’m in you and you’re in me
It is time
To break the chains of life
If you follow you will see
What’s beyond reality

24 Aug 2017 Weird dream sequence and red haired lady in chalk

Hello to you.  It’s 11:54 am as I write to you this muggy, hot and mosquitoey morning!  Just came in to cool down after working on a chalk drawing this morning.  I’m tired again.  I know I’m sleeping otherwise I wouldn’t be dreaming.   I just wake up feeling exhausted.  Kyle is having the same problem.  He attributes troubles to inheriting family genes with the same problem and summer insomnia.  For me?  Probably just the “I’m getting old can’t sleep for shit!” problem lol.  We haven’t been able to pin-point any one thing that could be the cause and it’s going on two months of this now!

The weird dream sequence I remember was of walking in the snow and then hearing someone say, “she’s going to burst, she’s about to give birth!” and then seeing this glue-like substance on my legs.  It was wood pieces were glued to my legs.  Then there was a man that looked like actor Sam Neill laying on the ground screaming and contorting.  There was a man next to him holding a huge version of the citrine crystal I have and there was bolts of energy going from the screaming man to the crystal.  It was like the screams were charging the crystal (or was the crystal charging the man?! Hmmm!)

23 Aug 2017 GANS pendant and “Just draw”

Hello there!  How are you doing?  It’s 6:02 pm as I write to you.  Today has been a good day.  We did a trip to Michael’s (craft and hobby shop in Burleson) and restocked my chalk and I found some inexpensive vial pendants for GANS (http://www.plasmaproduction.org/what-is-gans.html).  Ever since I saw people were starting to make them I was inspired to make one for myself lol.  I have to say it feels good to wear it!

As I mentioned this morning, I was feeling like my creativity flow hasn’t been very strong the past few days.  Well when I went out with my chalk today, that familiar voice chimed in and said, “Just draw!”  Sometimes if I try to think about what to draw too much, that’s when I really get blocked!  It’s best to just go for it and see what comes through.  Three images came forth.  The first one is me imagining that the clouds above me in the sky are looking back down at me with bunches of eyes! LOL! Silly I know.  The second one is me experimenting with random colors to shape a face and the last just an image that keeps popping in when I’m under the sun.  I keep seeing the shadow of an angel in my minds eye climbing down to me.

I love the imagery in this message from Amma:


The sun shines down,
and its image reflects a thousand
different pots filled with water.

The reflections are many,
but they are each reflecting the same sun.

Similarly, when we come to know who we truly are,
we will see ourselves in all people.
