Personal Quote: Smell it and weep.

Midway through the year and I think the last of my David cobwebs are clearing. The loss of a sibling is an experience that does a number on your head, but it's unexpected, because people never talk about it. It's like Ten Little Indians, then there were three, then there were two, and then you start to dread the idea of being the last little Indian standing just a little bit more than you don't want to die. Strange to me that there doesn't seem to be more poetry, writing, and art dedicated to the subject, given that the impact it has is unbelievably profound.

I managed to draw every night last week and some the week before, I wrote a poem a couple of weeks ago, and I'm feel the urge to cut the TV cord, again. My name is Fini and I am a Roku binger. Creativity seems to have found me again, which is a relief, because the gaping space that is left when the will to create vacates your soul hurts like hell. Another birthday is fast approaching and the need to express myself through words and art is becoming urgent to the point of bursting. Phrases are springing up and rattling around in my head and then the colors and lines in my world are just vibrating and calling me to pick up my pens and paint and let the pigment flow. Funny that I started off with black ink on white paper, but that is my fall back position - my art equivalent of automatic writing.

In honor of being midway to my goal (isn't that where we always are?), my first favorite poem.

Halfway down the stairs
is a stair
where i sit.
there isn't any
other stair
quite like
i'm not at the bottom,
i'm not at the top;
so this is the stair
I always

Halfway up the stairs
Isn't up
And it isn't down.
It isn't in the nursery,
It isn't in town.
And all sorts of funny thoughts
Run round my head.
It isn't really
It's somewhere else

How are you? x

Have you finished all of your travels for now? I've enjoyed seeing the photos of your adventures in India and, of course, as Lobster Man. Fun stuff. I am well, but not on DA as often as I was. That will change if I manage to keep drawing. I am going to check out your new stuff :)

Yeah all done for the time being... three winters in a row travelling SE Asia got a bit much and I decided to cut short my last trip to come home and work on the million and one projects I have going. So for now it's musicianship, art, photography, circus and making more money to travel again when I feel like getting out of here again :)

You may not remember me but I remember you. I use to be known as Nevaleigh, but I left that a long time ago. And now I'm back, I'm not sure why or how that came to be but here I am.

And hello :)
