             The world is wistful and hazy with each labored breath. I struggle. I pull. I wheeze.
        I am drowning. Quicksand. Undercurrent. Summer heat. Thick. Wet. Stifling. Unpierced Cacti. Unrequited embrace of Agave. I long for the Eagle's territory.
            Blustery storm. White feathered snow. Velvety and cold. Prickling my throat. Crystallized Fruit, invading my Mouth. Crushed Stone. A thousand Elephants. Tusks. Rust. Dust. Swallows me whole. Balloons fill. Tighter. Bigger. Wider. I am full. Fuller. The Fullest. I can't breathe.

La caja

Mi felicidad está oculto, para proteger el suyo.

Mi risa es tranquila. Para que usted pueda escuchar lo que usted elija.

Mi amor es increíble, pero nunca se sabe. prefiere que permanecer inmóvil y encarcelados. 

Sin embargo, prefiero correr libremente por los jardines colgantes. 

Así que voy a correr de todos modos. Voy a recoger las flores frescas, y me aseguraré de que mantener en una caja cuando usted visita.

Odds and ends

I like to find a way to recycle everything...boxes, old bottle caps, old paint, playing cards. When I was a young girl, I used an empty chocolate box to store my crayons and toys in.  As I got older I realized that I can turn old shirts into new ones, and that thrift stores were like treasure hunts. I have since come home with vintage books, old buttons, and even postcards from the 1800's!! All these things have been turned into art in my hands. How amazing is it, to be able to transform something old into something new!

Here is a bracelet I made out of sheet music...for all you musicians out there.

Anything can be art, so please reduce waste and support the cause.
