Hey Beautiful People! I had ‘Garden Song’ by David Mallet running through my head like crazy while drawing this….wanted to post the lyrics to his whole song but no one is quite sure what the lyric’s are! There are sooo many different versions on google it’s exhausting. I have a version in my head running on a loop that I think is Pete Seegar’s…but anyway…talk about planting seeds! Beautiful David Mallet planted this song and it grew gorgeous flowers of all sorts!!! Huge hugs all around!

P.S. Ishita’s is the first comment I read and she said she was going to listen to the song…thought I should post it (had planned to but laziness won the day! 😅) Anyway…YAY! I found the version of Pete Seeger singing it that I’ve known my whole life! And this wonderful video shows the original lyrics written out with the changes Pete made written in red under each line. SO cool! Here it is:

Thank You Ishita for the inspiration! Cheers ALL!

Those of You who have been my friends for a while may vaguely remember this painting. I used to call it ‘coming to win us’ (a tribute to Cat Steven’s song ‘Longer Boats’. It was MUCH simpler/different back then! Walking by it one day I noticed it had gotten scratched and some of the paint had come off. I’d forgotten to seal it properly. In fixing it  I started to play and play and play. That was about 5 months ago of revisiting it now and again when the mood struck. This has been a fun journey! It’s finished/sealed and being set free now!

the numbers

wave by/© Blissbait Artthe numbers

nowadays, to my ears, the news casters sounds like adults in Charlie Brown’s world:

wah wah wah, wah wah, wah wah wah

my brain jumps off the couch and although i see their mouths moving

 my heart aches deeply and hums fragmented songs with its fingers in my ears

there is a vast realm of my psyche that can only wait

just breathe, send out love and wait

but the numbers………they speak loud and clear

and register on every level

Sending out prayers and Love to All of You who are in the thick of this. I am so sorry for all You are going through and all of Your losses….there simply aren’t adequate words. Please know You are held in the world’s heart and so much Love surrounds You even if it doesn’t feel like it right now.
