I think I need some strange creature to come and light the fire under me. It has come to my attention that I have a LOT to do before Christmas, and very little time in which to do it all. This evening I walked in a beautiful snow back and forth from the movies. I probably should have stayed in and worked on some things, but I didn't. Then, once home, despite being full from eating a large popcorn, I had more snacks, followed by painting. Now, though I sit at the computer with my list of To Do's before me, I busy my hands with a bag of candy and avoid them. Aware of my procrastination, I've ferreted out this nice beast from the many little publicly unseen artworks which fill files upon files of my many hard drives to help me out. This is a drawing I've scanned into my computer and digitally painted with color and texture, and if anyone needs me to send him over to help you get your things done, just give me a shout.

You Can't Go Back

Where the heck...where the heck did the year go? In fact, where did the time go....all the time...I'm thinking fifteen years ago, more- - it flew. My childhood, well, that doesn't feel recent. It doesn't even feel like it was me. But I have pictures. I saw them. It was me alright. Maybe everyone feels that way. We change so much from childhood to adult that really, no, you aren't the same person, so that 'child' from so long ago, feels more like the star of some television movie you remember (in snippets, but not in full) from seeing many, many moons ago. And I don't want to go back, (there's too much I would never want to relive) but if it could just slow down a little bit. It's December. It's really December.
