It’s Week 2 of the latest Bronchitis Bout.  Like bipolar disorder, there’s really nothing new about getting month-long lung crud.  It happens.

Sorta amazing, really, this blasé acceptance of whatever the day brings.  I’m not always this cool, but it’s such a gift when I can be.  Seems to me I was raging right up to the point of chills and fever.

A physical shock often resets my bipolar rheostats.  Two weeks ago, I was text-wailing at my friend Lily, taking offense wherever I could find it, and wrestling paranoid thoughts to the mat.  Today, I did laundry and cleaned up cat barf with nary an emotion in sight.

Except a little glee.  I started a goofy spread in my art journal based on something I cut out of an old magazine years ago: “When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.”  I worked on this one little piece while my laundry tumbled, and it just made me happy.

Sorta amazing, really.

      This card was one of those amazing synchronisity events. I spotted the picture at an antique shop, passed on it, then went home and found the caption in a magazine. I had to go back to the shop the next day for the picture, because I knew they would be hilarious together. I make these cards for me–to entertain myself and make me laugh. It’s always a pleasant shock when someone else laughs, too.

    I remember you saying you found some wonderful artwork material in antique stores, that day we spent together. I love the “synchronisity” of mind and the things we collect. Your artwork (cards) are outstanding to me! I do that in a similar way with decor in the house and what I find “out there” in nature.
