| Turn It Off | @blindspotcreatives "They said honey come down,
you’ve been up for so long.
You can’t live life with your
head in the clouds.
They said oh darlin
you can’t be so sweet,
the harsh ol’ world
will sweep out from your feet.
Pretty girl don’t laugh so loud,
amidst the tragedy
how could you be so proud?
Stay up with the times,
the affairs and the news-
wipe your face
and the dirt from your shoes
from tails to heads,
the truth is splattered
in shades of red.
Sucking the life of an innocent child
never having a chance
to live free and wild.
Politics, media, religion,
all a piece of the filthy pie.
Tastes and textures
on the surface so sweet,
filling our bellies with
lies and defeat.
Turn it off,
cut the cable,
we’re all apart of change
if only willing and able." https://www.blindspotcreatives.com/blogarchives/turnitoff
I've driven past this for the last five months.. finally stopped by today, their last day of painting the story of the Tortoise & the Hare. 53 animals on four Duluth scenes.. so beautiful 🖌
So this is happening... mark your calendar.
OPENING RECEPTION~ Once upon an imagination: rediscovering our youthful perspective.
December 13th from 5 to 7 p.m. at @redherringlounge.
I'm baking cookies 🍪 - be there or be □.
"Home is being comfortable with who you are and why you are here. It is accepting life and the circumstances granted and making the most of every God Damn breath. All our searching, seeking, clinging, chasing, running from, running towards, filling up, emptying out is a call to Home. But we dont have to scream and shout... shhhhh. Home is here. Where it's always been. Our longing is for a belonging... love yourself. Love every fucking flaw. Every impulse. Every habit. Every quirk. Every birth mark. Every fear. Every let down. Every embarrassment. Every fall. Every failure. Every goodbye. Every struggle. Every reaction. Every smile. Every laugh. Every challenge. Every road block. Every strength. Every weakness. Every freckle, wart, fat roll. Every God damn piece of you, love it. Because you're never going to find Home until you find yourself.
I spent a lot of time hiding from home, looking for a new one, crying for greener grass…
I left a million times only to gain new eyes.
Here’s the thing, home, our true nature, is patiently awaiting our attention.
We only leave to return again….. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been gone.
It doesn’t matter how far you went.
You can always come back singing Hunny, I’m Home." https://www.blindspotcreatives.com/blogarchives/hunnyimhome
It's not symmetrical, pretty random and slightly chaotic - but hey, that's life. Check out the new art work up at @beanerscentral.
Chuckles is now a senior! Happy 7th birthday, Charlie. I don't know where I'd be without this furry spirit in my life.
UNTITLED: displayed at @beanerscentral November 4th to the 30th. Come check out a jumble of my photography, drawings and paintings!
Details are on Facebook and the Website. •
MARK YOUR CALENDAR: closing reception will be on November 26th from 6 to 8 p.m. It will be a great opportunity to ask questions and hear more about the inspiration!

Thank you @tischergallery for being so helpful and quick to get these images printed!
'Gradually by writing you will learn more and more to be free, to say all you think; and at the same time you will learn to never lie to yourself, never to pretend. But only by writing, and long, patient, serious work will you find your true self.'
I have found the act of writing - putting pen to paper - cathartic, to say the least. And now sharing verbally the visceral emotions and thoughts is nothing short of healing. Speak your voice folks, we all have something to share.
the g'damn blues👣
They got married at the Stillwater Goverment Center. My ma wrote the vows. Less then a dozen people were there. I was born out of wedlock... damn sinners (they've always done it their own way). These two beautiful people are my parents and they have been married for 26 years. Years filled with love - unconditional love. Our family has grown beyond blood because these two have taught all of us to bring in every stray cat and treat it like your own. I called my dad a few weeks ago and asked how ma was, he said "we're so in love"... Nothing has changed. I am forever grateful for how you've taught me to accept people, challenge them, and hold them when they need it. Thank you for reminding me how simple love can be. Congrats, you rockstars.
Wedding date 💃
Chicken scratched knucks. 👊
What a reunion ~ I missed my brothers @ryan__krieger @tony_nelson22 @fuzzo27 lewin @zvonbank (and all the other folks). Congrats RyGuy and thanks for bringing everyone back together, you big ball of love! ❤
