Swirling vortex, sheer force of will …

Tornadoes possess  the powerful ability to clear and raze anything that cannot withstand their relentless forces…

Outer tornadoes may be seen clearly with the physical eyes, and felt with the outer senses. They instantaneously generate fear and respect as well as sympathy and kind actions.

Inner tornadoes clear the ground in intensely personal ways, sometimes undetected by our inner radar before they barrel through our lives… They mysteriously transform in ways that may become apparent to others only over time…

There are many lines in life to be drawn, aren’t there?

I miss my blogging friends, I hope you’re all well!

She holds a place for now… more to come soon…

Diagnose & medicate people who tune into the Realm of All Knowing and decipher the code of the Universe.

People with ADHD know instinctively that everything interconnects.

Some people function effectively while engaging both sides of the brain. Some people perceive most clearly when they appear to “tune out”.

Some people learn affection by perceiving others’ emotions inside themselves.

Disrupting these natural tendencies may disrupt the individual’s peace.

Let your heartbeats echo the Universe





Let yourself learn intuitively.


DESERVES acknowledgement.

Let yourself be led.

Everything flows

Everything congeals

Everything reveals

Everything subsides

Everything resides

Everything abides

People with ADHD know instinctively that everything interconnects.

Here’s the finished version of the sketch I posted two days ago

I added color, hoping this will carry the eye about the piece more so that the different components pull together and tell a story.

The eyes open the window to the soul…

They also comprehend and mis-apprehend…

One look into a person’s eyes can reveal a lifetime of emotion, experience, revelation, and connection.

Hope (that’s her in the upper left corner…), even the tiniest hope, can light(en)  fresh buds to spring from amidst the wilted refuse of exhausted promise…

(techie note… this is my first – completed – piece with digital watercolor. the ink-work was done by hand with a fountain pen. i think i’m hooked…)

Thank you, Elizabeth, for the wonderful idea of using my artwork as blog posts!

For three weeks now I’ve been scrambling double-time, writing frantically and then scurrying to create original images for the posts… It never occurred to me that folks might just enjoy the images for their own sake.

I made this sketch yesterday while waiting on a bookstore to open… One of my friends was really on my mind, and I sketched, wishing the love that I was putting into the sketch to find its way to them.

I was thinking about how often we move through sadness and confusion and fear to get to better places. Along the way, the world can feel dark and terrifying.

Sometimes when we detect the tiniest tear in the veil of illusion of this world, the shaky ground seems to yield into abyss…

This afternoon, I added color to the sketch… You’ll get to see it in a couple days!
