Lift up my spirits. Some of the doodles I’ve been doing during that certain week filled with bad vibes and icky, terrible emotions. Cathartic, yes but far from high art, which I hope to achieve at some point. Still, there’s absolute joy and control I feel when doing something like this.

Of course, this day wouldn’t be complete without a
cheese balls post for my P celebrating our “official togetherness”. I love you so much, Papple! We have a long way to go, I know, but I’m glad to be together with someone in a relationship where we’re not just facing each other, but facing forward side by side.
Here’s a little doodle I made for him while waiting for patients to come by yesterday. Here’s to our crazy world which I think keeps getting bigger and bigger every day we’re together and even when we’re not together. It’s nice to keep bringing in something to our world an accumulated series of stories and experiences and it expands, expands, and expands.
P’s my stronghold and my to-go-to person, someone I can show all parts of myself to. We could just curl up in bed and it’s the safest place for me, where I could just bury my head into that comfortable place between his shoulders and head and start going on if I’m doing anything right, and how scared I can get. I love the way my mind clears up when I’m with him like there isn’t a care in the world. And I would do the same for him, take care of him and love him back a thousand times over.
“Sometimes life is hard. Things go wrong — and in life, and in love, and in business, and in friendship, and in health, and in all the other ways in which life can go wrong. And when things get tough, this is what you should do: Make good art. I’m serious. Husband runs off with a politician? Make good art. Leg crushed and then eaten by a mutated boa constrictor? Make good art. IRS on your trail? Make good art. Cat exploded? Make good art. Someone on the internet thinks what you’re doing is stupid, or evil, or it’s all been done before? Make good art.”
I’m so glad to have stumbled upon this a month ago and I never did get the chance to post it here and share. It’s a very inspirational and motivating speech of Neil Gaiman, one of the world’s most prolific writers, and addresses not only the young artists but anyone in an art field or who enjoys making art of any kind. Thanks for putting this online for the world to hear! It’s absolutely stellar and uplifting.
