Dan the Man! Ain't no flies on us! . . . I haven't seen his sweet old mug for weeks! He's been under a fly mask. One dose of his homeo remedy though... can't even believe it myself. I am treating some skin issues on him, the flies-no-more is a side effect. Pretty. Damn. Cool. The other kids in the paddock, still in masks, and the flies were biting me instead!
If Tuesday was a Jolly Rancher.
Friday of champions.
Balancing act by a self-taught illusionist. The bottom bead is actually the largest, but the way the clear came to encase the purple makes it look smaller in the photo. . Our discussion topic this week on the @consciously.woman blog has been #artistdate. It's probably our fave topic - take yourself out on a date. Go alone. Get your creative on! Truthfully, I've been artist dating since high school, but back then I called it skipping school. I would go to the lake, collect the smooth stones, and balance them on the edge of my notebook to keep the pages from flying around. My pockets were lined with half written sonnets of joy for the lake that looks like an ocean. She was the perfect muse and the keeper of all my secrets. A self-taught illusionist never works alone. Magic is a shared resource.
Sun comes up, it's Tuesday morning 💛
