hearing voices

My curious friend asked about my voices.  He wants to know what they sound like, are they nice or mean, genders, languages.  I searched my own blog for hearing voices and came up with some cool posts, but nothing giving a real overview. I’m crazy and disabled, love and accept myself unconditionally, and have a… Read More »

sedation

Sometimes I like a little sedation, when I’m too up and need help calming down.  It helps to curtail a problem–it’s important that I don’t get really too up, which can be a hypomanic issue. A friend mentioned he needs to quit smoking weed.  I don’t like weed or alcohol, and it’s expensive.  So by… Read More »

miracle

Trying to trust myself that I’m doing good work.  I would rather make art like Miracle that tells my truth and nourishes me, than waste my time running in circles.

bread

“If I ever feel like life isn’t worth living, please feed me some of this bread,” I told Ming.  It was cheese garlic naan from Gandhi’s in Tucson.  Wow, amazing.  Better bread than I could have dreamed. Ming was turning left, driving us back to our airbnb.  “I guess it’s the bread of life.  Maybe… Read More »

murals

On Saturday, we served on the soupline, an honor to give water, trail mix, and chocolate chip granola bars to many houseless people.  Yes, I love to work the water table!  Water is my favorite! I respected about 150 houseless people.  Then Ming and I went for a walk nearby to see some murals.  I… Read More »

psychonaut’s prayer

I made a new poetry meme, psychonaut’s prayer. I think this is a prayer series now, since I had the addict’s prayer too.  What do you think?  I used a public domain psychedelic art from wiki commons. lent I was meditating Wednesday, at the Worker–it’s Lent, so we have different prayers.  During the meditation, yeah,… Read More »

Hey, guess what.  I posted on facebook about the recording I did of the Bach song I love, and a link to the soundcloud file.  Then I got really embarrassed, like it’s no good, and took it down from facebook. I was playing the recording for Ming, and all I could hear were the flaws. … Read More »
