Life as a human is strange
There are certain obligations
Things we’re required to do
What happens when we just don’t?
What if we all just decided to stop?
What if we turned around and walked in the other direction?
We could turn our backs on what we know and let night be day. East could be west.
We could set normal aside and embrace the unknown.
We could be human in different ways.
Would it all add up to the same amount of strange?
Would we simply be walking in circles?

I’m thankful to be in the presence of such perfection.

I see you looking fine in your flashy yellow suit. Let’s you and me fly down to the club and groove to some of that jazz they play down there. We’ll get drunk on a big-ass flower and get down to business.
I made this piece with the Art Set app three years ago.

It’s funny how I like my art better once I’ve stepped away from it.
This one makes me think of outer space and a storm within the earth’s atmosphere coming together.
Space is only an illusion, isn’t it? The universe is really
nonlocal. I’m ready to accept that paradigm. I’m ready for the frequency of my vibration to increase.
When you challenge yourself to do better and then don’t
You decide to try harder the next time
You say, “this is the weekend I’ll get things done”
You say, “I’ll schedule my time”
You say, “I won’t sleep in”
“I’ll go to the gym”
“I’ll clean the bathtub”
Suddenly it’s Sunday and you’ve done none of it
And you ate badly
And you feel defeated knowing that it will happen the same way next weekend
My father used to live in a duplex apartment at the end of Sunset Ave. in Bloomington.
The street was aptly named.
I took this photo six years ago, when Dad was pretty healthy and strong. He may have been visiting his sister in Atlanta on this day.
