July 26, 2014 - Army of Ink Collecting Thoughts


Army of ink hand on heart and book

She put her hand on her heart while she carefully collected her thoughts.

Her heart was threatening to launch itself right out of her chest.  She felt she was losing hold of what was real and what was not.  So she took herself aside to a quiet spot with truth firmly in hand, in heart and in somewhere in the book.

Footnote:  She looks almost ready for blast off in those heels, but someone suggested perhaps quiet, considered steps might be a safer way to travel.

July 3, 2014 - People Who Hurt

Art, Joanne Nam found at MONA  (original in colour).

If we better understand those who have narcissistic personalities maybe we can be less affected by their cruelty – and more accepting that there is little (or nothing) we can do to make them change or have empathy and compassion for another’s feelings and experiences.

June 30, 2014 - Army of Ink World In Pocket


Army of Ink yoyo pockets

She put the world in her pocket and made the spinning STOP .

Footnote:  When yoyoing sometimes it reaches the end of the string and at that point there’s no turning (spinning) back.  It’s finished.  No amount of tugging and pulling will get it going again.  Much like a bad day.  A tough time where you feel stuck.  To get it going again, you have to reach down, take it into your hand, restore the string to its original place and start again.  And life can feel like that.  Like a spin that never stops.  One we feel we have no control over.  But how we ‘feel’ and the reality can be worlds apart so it’s a good thing to have regular stops to reset yourself.  Ground yourself like this ‘Inks’ boots might suggest.

What are we going to do girls?

Footnote: The ‘Inks’ usually arrive on their own but one day things were really, really hard and so they all arrived together.  Sometimes we have to call on others to help us work things out.
