Which came first?

This conundrum always gets to me whenever I think about it.  I spend way much more time than necessary contemplating what seems more likely.  In this case, the egg arrived first and was a delivery system for what was inside:


There's crazy chicken with a floating swirl of thoughts, possibly contemplating her own conundrum; the quartet of peeps, my favorite in the lower right corner literally a peeping peep; and the post-modern chicken, ghostily out-lined behind a screen of floating feathers.  

Chickens are the best.  They're very popular these days and can be seen non-chalantly pecking on people's lawns or occasionally crossing the proverbial street.  Did you know there's a small town called Fair Oaks that is home to a large population of free ranging chickens?  They roost in the trees so if you're strolling after sunset, steer clear of any branchy overhangs.

Collaborative Collage

Swell postcards (and a garbage truck token) from the both of you. Lots to look at and enjoy. Textures, torn edges, cube shapes, penned patterns, shiny foil, stitchery, a proud horse, envelope surprise in a bag. Layers and mysteries from mom and son. Thank you.

Look for something this week in the mail. Finishing it up today.

El Pulpo!

Years ago, Raya and I were driving down 1 in the wee hours and came up with this mantra to keep ourselves awake.  One of us would yell, "El Pulpo!" and then the other would scream, "El Toro!" kind of like a call and response battle announcing who was the most fearsome.  And, speaking of battles, good old Pikachu is seen here protecting El Pulpo from some no doubt ferocious El Toro.  Ole!

I've been working on that original kernel of a story and have gotten more engrossed in it.  It's a little off beat but I think you'll be intrigued.  I'll do a little more on it probably Monday (I have to work tomorrow) and try to get it nailed down.  I do need that staring at the ceiling time, too, so I completely understand the need for space and the unobstructed flow of thoughts.

PS: thanks for legalizing us!

Ghost World

I've been working on some story ideas.  This is a sneak preview of a sort.  I'll update as I get stuff sorted out.  TTFN!
