watercolor lesson

Yesterday my friend came over to give me a watercolor lesson.  It was fun to learn about how to do it.  She taught me about warm and cool colors, the kind she uses from a tube, and a little about mixing colors.  We tried wet on wet, wet on dry, dry on wet, and dry… Read More »

hugging a tractor

I painted these backgrounds and realized the kid-me would have been thrilled by the colors.  Lavender was my favorite color, when I was a kid, and pink with white. I was thinking how sometimes when a trans woman starts living as a woman, who had lived as a man, her way of dress and makeup… Read More »

crazy

I made a meme about crazy.  Drake seems pretty reprehensible in his “Hotline Bling” video.  I laugh and laugh, at Drake and the messed up, misogynist things he says to the addressed, in this song.  He’s so transparently trying to shame her into being loyal to him–staying home and not changing–when it’s clear, she’s escaped… Read More »

happy birthday to Mama

This morning I cooked of some veg sausage for Ming that had been sitting in the freezer for a while.  I was the main eater of soy sausage at our house, but I stopped eating soy in late summer.  So it was nice to cook the last three little patties, for him. I made Ming… Read More »

rope belt

“Dang, that’s a hardcore rope belt you got there.  That’s not a rope belt–that’s a rope.” “Yeah,” Ming said, working at a knot.  I took his picture. “Can I touch it?” I asked.  “I think I’m really not going to like how it feels.”  It looked rough as jute. He held the rope out to… Read More »

full-time feeler

Yes, I’m a full-time feeler.  It really does take everything.  All my energy and time.   Sometimes I think disabled crazy people such as myself are the designated feelers of the world.  Drugged, ignored, dismissed unless our art becomes wildly popular.  The other people are too busy to feel. I never got desensitized.  I can’t watch… Read More »

weird body

Been having some health issues.  I will not tell you all about them.  Even if I tried, your head would just spin.  I have a weird body, is my conclusion. barfy Yesterday I got nauseated, amid a bunch of other issues, and I felt worried about that.  Normally I have a big appetite, and I… Read More »

belt

“Hey, you know my belt?” Ming asked. “Your belt?” I asked. “Well, your belt,” he said. “Yeah, the leather one,” I said.  “Whose belt was that originally?  I think it’s been passed down through the generations.” “I was wondering if it would be ok with you if I started wearing a rope belt.” “Hmm.  A… Read More »
