So Very Odd

100 Blessings

It just feels odd to be so creative and crazy at the same time. And yet… And yet, this is exactly who I am.  Somehow, I’ve come home to myself through the backdoor.  And it’s all okay.  More than okay, I’m at peace with the pain.  I can breathe through the hopelessness.  I find comfort during the hysteria.  I am living in a place of sufficiency even while the brain demons scream that I’m not.  And sorta loving that all this contradiction and friction seems to be making art.

    You are indeed a fascinating person. Every aspect of you is you and that is what makes you fascinating. If it aint broke don’t fix it..

    I love these! What do you call this kind of art? Did you make them from old books? I’m going to look around your site and see what I can find!

      It’s called art journaling. I made this journal years ago from watercolor paper and book board, but I’m preparing an old spiral-bound sketch book to use next by painting the pages with gesso.
      The art itself is anything that you love—images, color, words. I love collage and junk.

    Would you give up your art to be quote-unquote normal? That’s a personal and rather presumptuous question on my part, I realize. But I do like where your creativity takes you.

      People have been asking bipolar creatives that question as far back as Lord Byron. My honest answer is “I don’t know.” Would I need my creativity if I didn’t have a mental illness?

    PS. I’ve nominated your blog for the One Lovely Blog Award, should you be so inclined to accept.
