Seeds for My Garden? A Trip to the Market.


Can I just say that the price of food blew my socks off today?

I spent only about fifty bucks. I forgot bread. Didn’t get juice. I skipped the ground turkey and organic beans. They were out of rice cakes and the fancy ice cream that petman likes. I just got basic, basic stuff, hardly anything. Bananas, usually 39¢ per pound, were 59¢. What’s going on? Is this all due to the high price of diesel?

Whatever it is, it’s not working with my budget.

I’m going to plant the garlic in hopes of getting lots of garlic. It’s too precious too eat.

My Friends Have Interesting Jobs Too

It’s not just me.

This is Christine. She paints murals and incredible things on peoples walls. We met in high school and we seem to take turns at the “painting stuff on walls” thing. I did it for 10 years (a long time ago) as a scenic. Now it’s her turn.

Culture Exisits ACEOIn the brief moments I’ve had to get out, I’ve been quite inspired. I feel a bit like I’m drowning in ideas and I can’t work fast enough to get them all down on paper.

The other night I took a break from work, stepped out my studio-office door, just to stand in the freezing darkness of my soggy back garden. The sky was dark blue and the stars (there were so many) seemed brighter than usual. They were putting on a show just for me and in that neon moment, my cartoon alter-ego said, “Go paint something and have fun.” And so, I did.

I’ve been trying to do at least one painting per day in my sketchbook. Mostly mixed media with whatever I find laying around. Concepts based on thoughts, dreams or social situations.
