carry on tuesday #28 - amor eterno

my heart aches.

i am drunk
with fatigue.

a drousy numbness
paralyzes my soul.

the loss of your touch
pains my longing senses.

do i continue without you?

or join you
before my time has come.

(this weeks prompt - the opening line of John Keats ‘Ode to a Nightingale’

unconditional love changes lives

sunday scribblings #190 beauty

beauty is a word, it means many things. it is sunrise each day and images in the unconscious, in dreams as we sleep. last night it was a saddle, on the table of a yard sale. i was escaping from a very long and complicated dream, i jumped up into the saddle and rode along the edge of the table, as if along a cliff, horseless, happy and alone.

`I ca'n't believe that!' said Alice.

`Ca'n't you?' the Queen said in a pitying tone. `Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.'

Alice laughed. `There's no use trying,' she said `one ca'n't believe impossible things.'

`I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. `When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

from Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll

sacred paintings...

Kelly's been tripping to the 4 corner sacred areas of the Anasazi. the spirits are sharing their realm with him and he's capturing it fantastically on canvas... incredible juxtaposition of realms... this is my favorite so far...

Music by Delirium - Firefly:
(written by Jacqui Hunt)
And how I've loved
And I have served
And I have sinned
But I have learnt
As Long as you are true to the life that you live
It is the time to feel love
I feel a stirring deep within
Slowly picking up momentum
Like the tide coming into shore
Over and under in its course
This feeling emblazed inside
Every nerve like a firefly
Hovering above me,
glowing Glow,
glowing, glowing, divine
Every nerve like a firefly
Every nerve like a firefly
The feeling emblazed inside
Every nerve like a firefly
I never want to lose,
what I have finally found
There's a requiem, a new congregation
And it's telling me go forward and walk under a brighter sky
Every nerve glowing like a firefly
Glowing divine
Every nerve like a firefly

fundraisers for Fur and Feather

September has been a good month of fundraisers for FFAA. It started with the annual Pie Festival in Pie Town, lots of fun and a successful fundraiser. Denise and I made lots of artsycraftsy things to sell and we got lots of donations. The kids from the Mojave Academy were there to offer help and kept the dogs happy with lots of walks. A good time was had by all!

words of wisdom...

i think sticking to the dream daily
and not being inneruptd
is what art requires
unfortunately we are always being
the artist has to have a strong enough connect
to the story
that thay dont forget...

favorite new painting

you might get lost but you certainly won't be disappointed.

the nursery rhyme...

Three little kittens they lost their mittens, and they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens."
"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Meeow, meeow, meeow, now we shall have no pie."
The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, see here, see here
For we have found our mittens."
"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens
And you shall have some pie"
"Meeow, meeow, meeow,
Now let us have some pie."
The three little kittens put on their mittens
And soon ate up the pie,
"Oh mother dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens."
"What! soiled you mittens, you naughty kittens!"
Then they began to cry, "Meeow, meeow, meeow"
Then they began to sigh.
The three little kittens they washed their mittens
And hung them out to dry,
"Oh mother dear, do you not hear
That we have washed our mittens."
"What! washed your mittens, you are good kittens."
But I smell a rat close by,
"Meeow, meeow, meeow" we smell a rat close by...

3 Little Kittens Studio

Well, well, sure took me long enough to name my art studio and start a blog... but finally, today, it presented itself - 3 Little Kittens Studio.

It all started last Thursday when we trapped the first of the ferals. And now we have momma and all 3 kittens. It wasn't without incident, Shane has the bite wounds to prove it, luckily he's on the mend. The kittens are slowly gaining trust, momma is still very timid, they're all safe in my studio.

This is the first kitten - Hot Rod Robspierre aka Robbie (named after Shane's childhood kitten). He was neutered last Thursday; his 2 siblings make their trip to the vet tomorrow. Momma has to wait till her 10-day rabies quarantine period is up.

We planned to TNR (trap-neuter-release) the family, but it's hard not to get attached. We just want the best for them, momma will probably always be feral. Stay tuned for updates.
