I have another snow day tomorrow so decided to open up some mulled wine. Which makes me feel creative apparently.
Text: When the day has come / That I’ve lost my way around / And the seasons stop / And hide beneath the ground / When the sky turns gray / And everything is screaming / I will reach inside / Just to find my heart is beating.

Really into this song apparently.
It was a snow day (#teacherperks) so I decided to finish something I started awhile ago.
Text: When the hour is nigh / And hopelessness is sinking in / And the wolves all cry / To fill the night with hollering. / When your eyes are red / And emptiness is all you know / With the darkness fed / I will be your scarecrow.

Something I always wanted to tell Josie, but didn’t have the time.
My niece (who thinks I’m a really good artist, which is really sweet) asked me to paint “smile, be happy” on a canvas for her birthday. I was touched that a 11 year old just wanted my art for her birthday lol. Which was in October and I just now finished lol… pretty typical for me, actually…
I’ve never listened to it in a non-Christmas fashion until I listened to it from the prospective of a friend who went through an uneccesarily harsh breakup and gosh… what a heartbreaking song.
Medium: Water and apparently glue – I saw a “painting with glue” thing on Pinterest and decided to try it out. Pretty fun, if you don’t mind your shit looking like a kindergartner did it. 😂
