I Want To Change The World, Instead I Sleep

keep breathing
Acrylic, Mixed Media

I want to change the world
Instead I sleep
All that I know is I’m breathing.
-Ingrid Michaelson, “Keep Breathing”

Pretty sure at one point of my life I listened to this song on repeat for about 3 months.  Also, maybe I need to make a separate category for my stuff instead of just lumping everything under my “mixed media” page like a lazy bum.

Death Is A Part Of Everything That Lives

Mixed Media

Death is a part of everything that lives.
-Zeddicus Zu’l Zoranders, Wizard’s First Rule by Terry Goodkind

At face value I suppose this quote may seem rather depressing, but as someone that struggles with the concept of death (other people’s – not my own), I found the idea of death being a necessary part of life and its certainty somehow comforting.

The Cream In My Tea Spells Out Something To Me


The cream in my tea
Spells out something to me
And they say
That I’ll heal by the day
But, the message I give
Kills off all will to live
I’m afraid that I’m losing my way.
-Bonnie McKee “I Hold Her”

I loved every single word of this song so much I had to use it all, but I’ll save you the burden of reading and just post the text that inspired me the most.

I Can’t Fit The Feelings In

Every Single Night
Watercolor, Mixed Media

“Every single night
I endure the flight
Of little wings of white-flamed
Butterflies in my brain.
That’s when the pain comes in
Like a second skeleton
Trying to fit beneath the skin
I can’t fit the feelings in.”
-Fiona Apple “Every Single Night”

I feel like Fiona Apple would really, really, really, really, really get my brain.
