Well, I’m just waiting for inspiration to strike so if anyone has any inspiriting thoughts or suggestions please offer them.  Thanks. Yotaki


Evening Fall

Yotaki Evening Fall


I took this photograph tonight.  When I titled it Evening Fall I remembered one of my Japanese dance students told me that Yotaki means evening fall in Japanese.

The More The Merrier

Today in my Eastern thought & Wellness class we were discussing the word integrity.  What it means and if the students thought they lived a life of integrity. Next I asked them to write a brief statement of who they are and gave them 5 minutes to do it.  One said it was the toughest question anyone ever asked him.

On my way home I wondered if I could answer those questions or write a statement of who I am, not a description like mother, female, teacher, artist, dancer and so forth but who I am. I shall think about that tonight.  After they wrote the description of who they were I asked again if they lived a life of integrity.  Did what they wrote match? We discussed intention and what was their intention for the week.

After all the deep discussion we played HA HA.  Perhaps you remember it from childhood. You make a line or circle each person’s head on the belly of the person behind them.  The first person says Ha Ha the next adds another and the idea is everyone adds a ha to the last number so they increase as you go down the line.  Usually by the third person everyone is in giggles.  It is fun to try to see if you can make it to the end.  The more the merrier as they say.

Ecstasy in the Afternoon

Gliding with such a silky feel.                 Don’t stop.

It  amazes me just how my finger tips feel the essence of  movement. Such composure as they glide, united, encased in the finest silk. The color of royal blue comes to mind. As brush skims the floor sharing ecstasy with my fingers.


silky touch

Pontificate space & time

I hear you talk abou time space continuum as if you had an inkling of what it means. You expound and pontificate. I tire of listening to your bs.

I am an artist.  I don’t dare pretend to understand.

Turmeric Tea

Turmeric Tea

2 Tablespoon ginger

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 pinch cayenne

1 pinch black pepper

3 cups cold water

Mix ingredients and heat in the hot water.  Sweeten with agave or honey is needed. Turmeric tea is excellent for joints and stuffy head. It will warm your insides and blood, great spicy taste.  I hope you try it.

Flowers of Evil

Floating black dots. Confused as to what is real or not. Has the threatened blindness chosen this time to sneak back? Swamp smells from landlord’s “pond” linger. A breading ground for disease. In a twisted mind he envisions flowers, self sustaining. Flowers of evil. I awaken to new mosquito bites.
