The Mind in Question
My name is Sandy Wyatt. Sandy Sue to some.
My vision for this site is to use my bipolar disorder as a launch into higher consciousness, to be honest about the weird convolutions it takes, and to practice awareness with a mindset of curious compassion. Okay, that’s the ideal. As a very human being, I’ll end up somewhere south of that target, which is all part of the Adventure.
Along the way, I’ll play with my favorite toys—writing, artwork, psychology, myth, fandom, poetry, fantasy, meditation, coffee, conscious evolution, movies, brain function, music, and various spiritual traditions—with twisted humor and a fearless turning over of sacred rocks to find the slippery-slimies underneath.
My collage art accompanies most posts, and my fiction resides under Heaving Bosoms in the banner headline above. Comments and critiques about both are most welcome. If you’re struck dumb by the brilliance of my collage work, many items are for sale at my Etsy shop. The link is in the sidebar at right.
I’m sharing all I have here—the important stuff and the mundane. My hope is that visitors, with or without mental illness, will find something worthwhile to take away or leave behind.
If you’d like to check out a sampling of my posts, I’ve listed a few links below to ones suggested by The Seven Links Award that I received from fellow bipolar-artist-blogger Kathy McCullough.

I live in Iowa with my Life Coaches, Henry and Emmett, who supervise my fiction writing, mixed-media artwork, and mental hygiene.
