I'm painting again. Less than than 5 words, yet so meaningful!
More to come soon.
CommentsThanks for all the kind comments, the time, the visits, the thoughts...

(ok..back to work..ora labora, it never ends, does it?)
too many things floating in my headExclude all elements in what we do, we will be masters in being mediocre. Yet, put the personal in the daily, and our voice becomes prophetic.
P.A. (after many hours of being underslept and overcaffenaited, this is what comes out...)

Re-examined lyricsA good friend of mine passed me along this song, that believe it or not, I had never heard before. Last night, I heard it again. This time on the radio. It doesn't say anything I hadn't heard before. Still, sometimes it's good to bring fresh air to old clothes. Sometimes...It gets easy to forget how to wear them.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience I will dispense this advice now.
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked .You're not as fat as you ima
This above allI ask, what above all?
It might be a multi-layered question or a simple one that has more than one answer, no right or wrong answer.
However, so far, it's been hard to argue with Shakespeare's response: "...to thy own self be true".
...and what about?I read this a long time ago, it was refreshing to re-visit it again; thus I share:
"And what about art? Mistrusted, adored, pietized, condemned, dismissed as entertainment, auctioned at Sotheby's, purchased by investment-seeking celebrities, it dies into the "art object" of a thousand museum basements. It's also reborn hourly in prisons, women's shelters, small-town garages, community college workshops, halfway houses--wherever someone picks up a pencil, a wood-burning tool, a copy of "The Tempest," a tag-sale camera, a whittling knife, a stick of charcoal, a pawnshop horn, a video of "Citizen Kane," whatever lets you know again that this deeply instinctual yet self-conscious expressive language, this regenerative process, could help you save your life. "If there were no poetry on any day in the world," the poet Muriel Rukeyser wrote, "poetry would be invented that day. For there would be an intolerable hunger." "
-- Adrienne Rich
ResistanceBarry Lopez said it best, if you ever wonder what it is that we do what we do, why and how...just remember and build your resistance:
"We believe if we can say what many already know in such a way as to incite courage, if the image or the word or the act breaches the indifference by which people survive, day to day enough will protest
It is the somnolence, the great deafness, that reveals our problems. It is illiteracy. It is an appetite for distraction, which has become a cornerstone of life in our nation. In distraction one encounters the deaf. In utter distraction, one discovers the refuge of illiteracy .
We reject the assertion, promoted today by success-mongering bull terriers in business, in government, in religion, that humans are goal-seeking animals. We believe they are creatures in search of proportion in life, a pattern of grace. It is balance and beauty we
Que cosa fuera?Si no creyera en la locura
de la garganta del sinzontle,
si no creyera que en el monte
se esconde el trigo y la pavura...
Si no creyera en la balanza,
en la razón del equilibrio,
si no creyera en el delirio,
si no creyera en la esperanza...
Si no creyera en lo que agencio,
si no creyera en mi camino,
si no creyera en mi sonido,
si no creyera en mi silencio...
¿Qué cosa fuera, qué cosa fuera la maza sin cantera?
un amasijo hecho de cuerdas y tendones,
un revoltijo de carne con madera,
un instrumento sin mejores resplandores
que lucecitas montadas para escena...
¿qué cosa fuera, corazón, qué cosa fuera?
¿qué cosa fuera la maza sin cantera?
un testaferro del traidor de los aplausos,
un servidor de pasado en copa nueva,
un eternizador de dioses del ocaso,
júbilo hervido con trapo y lentejuela . . .
¿qué cosa fuera, corazón, qué cosa fuera?
¿qué cosa fuera la maza sin cantera?
¿qué cosa fuera, cor
Papyrus x Reader x SansPapyrus laughed eagerly and loudly as he and his brother Sans walked back to their stations.
“-And did you see how badly that human failed on my last puzzle?!It goes to show that I will be a great Royal Guard!NYEH HEH HEH!”Papyrus said, praising himself.Sans, who usually doesn’t leave his post (out of laziness) had to laugh also.”Is it really so hard to turn Xs into Os?” Sans chuckled.
As the Skelo-Bros neared Papyrus station, they noticed two little little legs squirming out as if they were stuck.Sans glanced over at the legs as if it was as usual as a hyper Lesser Dog, while Papyrus looked dumbstruck.”ANOTHER HUMAN?!”Papyrus yelled, more trying to get attention then being surprised.The small person automatically fell to the ground, fearfully clutching a flip-phone that had been given to her from her monster ‘guardian’.
Papyrus looked down upon the young girl as Sans merely stood back, completely cool.The girl, frozen with fear, lo
PLEASE READ - The Ransomware EpidemicPlease share, fave and spread this journal. You could help many people on DeviantArt protect their computers from this horrific cyberattack and raise awareness about the issue to those who haven't yet heard of it.
Funny how all these years of me picking and choosing updates to keep my computer functioning how I want it (you know... to have what you paid for and keep my product without others stealing it and modifying it *cough*badupdates*cough* ... basic consumer rights... but anyway) came to haunt me.
So I finally decided that I'd bite the bullet and update my updates... only to find out Windows Update was refusing to update and would forever stay stuck "searching for updates". Just my luck. When I really don't want updates they try to install, and when I really need them they don't.
Anyhow, why am I so desper
Doflamingo x Reader: Family Matters
There have been many things you have seen on Baby5’s face, but only rarely have you ever seen her looking glum. Most times you’ve seen her, she’s either exuberant, furious, or comically crying, depending on her “boyfriend” situation. Other than that, she was always relatively calm, with a slight smile.
“Little Miss, what has you feeling so down?” You walk up to her side, putting a hand on her shoulder.
“(name), I wasn’t expecting to see you.” She sighed, and then chuckled a little. “How many times have I told you to call me by my name? I don’t need to be called ‘Little Miss’.”
“I will continue calling you ‘Little Miss’ as long as I am a servant working here at the castle and you are considered Family by the Young M
