Sometimes you just need to know that you can only go up from where you are.

Here is a very quick acrylic painting on fabric that I made the other day.

by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros

I was only five when my dad told me I’d die
I cried as he said son, was nothing could be done
No all the fists I thrown just tryin to prove him wrong
After all the blood I spilled just tryin to get killed

Cuz I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
I’m ridin on hell’s hot flames comin up from below

Herowind and rain blowing out my window pain
Drugs drugs drug me down killin light killin sound

But now I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
Im ridin on Hell’s hot flames comin up from below
Yes I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
I’m riding on Heaven’s flames coming up from below

Far from below – how high can we go

To all the love I lost – hey just tryin to play boss
To all those friends I hurt – I treated em like dirt
And all those words I spewed – Nothin sacred nothing true!
To all these Ghosts I turn – I’m ready now to Burn!

Cuz I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
I’m ridin on hell’s hot flames coming up from below
Yes I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
I’m ridin of heaven’s flames coming up from below

Far – From below – how high can we go.

My new year’s resolution

Telling myself <every day> that… “I AM GOING TO HAVE A GOOD DAY TODAY”


David Lynch – Good Day Today

So tired of fire, so tired of smoke
Send me an angel. Save me

I wanna have a good day today
Good day today

Tired of drowning, going so low 
Send me an angel. Save me 

So tired of.....<gun shots>
Send me an angel. Save me

I wanna have a good day today
Good day today

So tired of fearing, so tired of dark
Send me an angel, save me

I wanna have a good day today
Good day today

True words Señora Celia.

Life is a carnival – by the fantastic Celia Cruz

All those who think that life is unfair,
Have got to know that is not the case,
For life is beautiful and one must live it!
Anyone thinking they’re alone, and that everything’s  bad,
Have got to know that’s not the case,
That in life, no one is alone, there is always someone.

Oh, there’s no need to cry, because life is a carnival,
It is more beautiful to live singing.
Oh, there’s no need to cry,
For life is a carnival
And your pains go away by singing.

Anyone thinking that life is cruel,
Have got to know that’s not the case,
That there are just bad times, and everything just goes on.
Anyone thinking that things will never change,
Have got to know that’s not the case,
smile to the hard times, and they too, will go on.

Oh, there’s no need to cry, because life is a carnival,
It is more beautiful to live singing.
Oh, there’s no need to cry,
For life is a carnival
And your pains go away by singing.

For those that complain a lot.
For those that only criticize.
For those that use weapons.
For those that pollute us.
For those that make war.
For those that live in sin.
For those that mistreat us.
For those that make us sick.

All those who thinks life is cruel,
Thy will never be alone.
For God is always with them.

Don’t tell me to write a story where the illustrations paint themselves.

Under the Water- by Clare and the Reasons
I roll over twice
and find i haven’t moved
blank tv screen
fills my mind with love
this was astonishing my dear
Manhattan figurine
walking here to there
is where i am
and where i want to be
under the water
under my foot print
under the big sky
under the bright stars
everyone’s sleeping
and this is the place
where we come from
and this the space
growing and away
never meant there was a better
place your hand in mine
and know i’d rather be
be without the which
makes us understand
this was avoidable my dear
subway car speeding
right across your face
it lets me know I’m
only waking now…
