Awkward Growth

“The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.”  -Sandra Kring I’m not quite sure why I’ve been leaning towards pink and purple lately. I think it’s because I’ve been feeling hurt and angry, and I wanted to calm myself. […]

Shattered Dreams

“And when he finished speakin’ He turned back toward the window. Crushed out his cigarette And faded off to sleep…” -The Gambler, Don Schlitz Well this was certainly random. 😉 I’m trying to figure out ways to create unique collages.

Illuminated

No one regrets having changed a light bulb.
