Fact :: When I began imagining this piece, I allowed for a gathering-of-data phase on the idea of fragility. I drove to work the next day contemplating again. In that instant, I saw an Access•a•Ride Van on my right on the highway. I cannot imagine being without my legs or my hands or anything I take for granted to live how I live now… The “simplest” thing taken from me would further expose me as even more fragile than I already am in this body. So I started to draw…
The very next day, I went to Chipotle today for work lunch, and I thought there was no line whatsoever. There was actually one person in line – someone in a wheelchair – and I didn’t see him when I walked in. Sure, there was sun glare up to a point, and sure I don’t have the best eyesight. But excuses aside… I didn’t see this man right away. The assembly line walkway was JUST the right size – I noticed how his navigation felt confined… To me, as I experienced + observed/witnessed from my perspective. That evening, I worked a little bit more on this drawing…
The next evening: a bird shat on me. No joke. I am almost 33 years old and have never had such luck! I am choosing to see it as LUCK for a number of reasons, which I won’t detail here. I finished this piece on ‘fragility’ tonight… realizing where + how my chakras are showing up… My Heart acting as roots • My Third Eye + Crown growing from there • In a desert, at night • As a Sun we may take for granted cracks open, showing its own fragility • There is more going on here… but basically my attention as I went along created new awareness on my own ‘luck’ in life • I am lucky to Be Who I Am • I Am Becoming New through experience • I Know Who I Am • I Know how I serve • Check out Paul Selig’s channeled reads… they are SO powerful!! 💕🙌

Fact :: I think I had a minor inner ear infection recently. I noticed instantly when it was clearing because it didnt sound like my left side was in the depths of an ocean anymore. I immediately thanked the Universe for my hearing. At the same time, my computer needed some TLC… and the Apple technician broke off my space bar. So. It is getting a longer repair now. Anyhow, I had this thought. I only have these ears… I must take care of them. I can’t just go into an Apple store and get new ears. I am not an amalgamation of disposable and replaceable parts. How could I forget that? In this age of technology + information, sometimes it is scary to think how “at one” anyone can become with convenient devices.
Also, I need to get back to playing my uke – the one that is 3D and looks less like a pineapple. I wonder if ukuleles were designed from a pineapple shape and I am mad that I don’t have a pineapple emoji. I still like circles and lines and asymmetry. ✌🏼
Fact :: I went for a 4-5 mile jog/walk yesterday. It was windy. Windy enough to remind me of how much I dislike the wind. WINDY ENOUGH TO HAVE A SPIDER LAND ON MY LEFT SHOULDER. Spiders do not have wings from what I know, so for one to randomly LAND on me says something. Now. What does this piece say? I don’t know. I just so happened to be re-reading about diamond consciousness, thinking about this random #artifact 💎 when said spider landed on me. I have a tattoo there, which adds meaning to this all-seeing 4-to-8-eyed creature showing up during a diamond consciousness focus. Anyhow. Random collage, Brooklyn bridge pieced around it- shout out to my connects in #newyork + nearby – lets get this collab DONE!
FACT :: I like triangles. I like asymmetry – even in sound, always have. I started this piece last night with the idea of fingerprints + magnetics in mind. Kind of toying with my second Oracle Deck design. How this one turned out is an eery reminder of the US dollar + school + The Illuminati. Yep. Well. That’s what can happen with basics, I guess? Also it is officially Taurus season… this random creation was NOT planned to line up that way. Normal life for me.
