Halloween was confusing. All my life my parents said, “Never take candy from strangers.” And then they dressed me up and said, “Go beg for it.” I didn’t know what to do! I’d knock on peoples’ doors and go, “Trick or treat – No thank you.”

“Blake said that the body was the soul’s prison unless the five senses are fully developed and open. He considered the senses the ‘windows of the soul.’ When sex involves all the senses, it can be like a mystical experience.” ~ Jim Morrison, 1947 – 1971
First time doing this blackout thing (is there a name for it) and have no clue what I’m doing 😁 #art #jimmorrison #thedoors #jimbo #sketchclub #graphics #illustration
Sitting at my doctor’s office – because this year is the year I’m finally taking care of myself – I spied this quote from one of the magazines in the waiting room.
Benedict…gotta love him!
“A writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, or because everything she does is golden. A writer is a writer because even if there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway.”
– Junot Diaz
“The whole culture is telling you
to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time.”
“After a while you learn the subtle difference between holding an hand and chaining a soul, And you learn that love does not mean leaning and company does not always mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses are not contracts and presents are not promises. And you begin to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes ahead with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. And you learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans and futures have a way of falling down in flight. After a while you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure and you really are strong and you really do have worth. And you learn and you learn with every goodbye you learn.”
