It’s late in the day… I’m still sipping coffee.. The way I felt when I first woke up this morning is hard to describe. Just—sad… A little lost and where nothing feels fair or right. I reflect back on everything that got to me in the past couple of weeks and everything that has been getting under my skin for a long time now and all I want to do is disappear. 
At the same time I feel there is a revelation coming. For the situations in life that are hurting my soul and even for bad situations other people are in that I know. 
I’ve felt so distanced from my art after working so much at this other ‘job’ where I completely don’t fit in at all. I miss art— I can truly say it was/is my own little magical world that I had all to myself. I created it, I kept it alive. It was -my own- treasure no one could take away— or make me change. In a weird way it was like escaping to my own fairytale. I have emotional attachments to it my art means so much to me. 
I’ve sailed away on this ship and I don’t know where I’m going. I feel stuck and I always imagine myself in a better place. And I want to escape.. To disappear.

Happy spring!

Photos of some of the happenings around my place in Texas.

First two pics are my guinea pigs on an Easter/spring photo shoot :)

Third photo is one of the most magnificent moths I’ve encountered around here. And he let me handle him for photos!

4th photo is just documentation of my new bright red hair color. I’ve had red hair for years but recently let it fade and major roots grow in… So it feels good to have a fresh new color. I used Vidal Sassoon in ‘runway red’ — very good hair dye!!!

Finally 5th photo is my new betta! No name yet. It’s also been forever since I’ve kept Bettas since giving up the hobby for probably a year or more.
I can’t help myself, I love animals.. Even fish, I admire their interesting colors and behaviors and what’s more— Bettas are a quite tame responsive species to their owners.

Peace out (if anybody says that anymore? Who cares…)

Love, s.s

Hazel and her second trick “Up” :) she’s such a fast learner!
