Full Moon In Capricorn

I have never accepted Summer. Now I think I have to as we are all stuck in the mouth of the New York Dragon. Waiting in the subway station is comparable to waiting inside of a Volcano while you sweat your weeks supply of water out. Facing a hundred strangers wondering through underground passages while barely being awake because your are a Vampire. City life in the Summer is not for me… It hasn’t all been bad. MMmm.. Blue Subway June photoThe Summer Solistice welcomed a well earned Mac Makeup Certification, in which I was knighted by the beautiful Amy Ernest! Followed by an incredible metal show – the one and only  Messugah! Messugah has a very special place in my life, so seeing them on that great day was just meant to be. Gaaaaaa…. the incredible power and force behind that music is unparalleled. My face and head throbbed and pulsated with sound and light. Chest pounded and face melted – check.


Summer this year is all about Art, Beauty, the Sea Goddess, Seaweed, Iced Coffee, short adventures, Life reflections, Making People Pretty and new plans.

In June my partner and I ventured to Salem Massachusetts. Bewitched Samantha StatueTraveling out of the city for a short vacation is a necessity to lessen the risk of shooting your face off to end the Summer misery. There is a Samantha (Bewitched) Bronze Statue in the Town square, how cute is that?  Lots of  witchy shops and normal people, yet again we are the weirdos. :/ Quaint and small Village atmosphere. The New England area feels incredibly  Old American/Colonial. Strange Thing?  .. Walking through the old tombstones and shrines for the victims of The Witch Trials is a steady reminder of the human condition in group mentalities and hysteria. Ohh you humans. One day we might get along. . or not. Without trees, fresh air, water how do we live? City life is certainly putting a strain on my spirit. This is the toughest city for me to focus and make my creations, but again I will endeavor and pull my little beings out. New cool affordable art coming up for sale! Stay tuned.Blue Taxi

Back to New York

traveling puppet masterSetting up shop here in Red Hook, Brooklyn. During this current journey, I can easily see myself as the old man in Puppet Master traveling with his case of dolls. Only if I had that case! Oh the steamy concrete of New York, how I do not miss you!. Summer. Oh, great.  Time to get working on JD again, he traveled right beside me the whole trip on the journey from Arkansas to New York on that classic American Railway – Amtrak. 2 days on the train, traveling via train makes one appreciate the simple times of not having your bags when flying having them checked for weapons and monsters. Well, this doll seems to be getting more and more devilsh. wuaua uuuuuahhhhh ha ha
