Sometimes I take a step back and really look at how many styles of art I created over the years.

So many mediums I worked in too.

How could one girl give birth to all this seemingly disparate stuff?

Could seem schizophrenic if I let it.

Sort of like how my last post was about shame and keeping on top of one’s losses

And today I’m here to tell you I was caught rollin’ merrily down the avenue


“I love my dog and she loves me.
She’s a little white pouf ball
And that isn’t all..
She does a little food dance
On her hind feet
And for me this is a major treat.
OHHH… I love my dog….”

Did you hear me when I said I got caught singing THAT??

I was so into my ditty that I did not hear the two gentlemen dressed in suits and very good shoes walking close behind me patiently waiting until I finished to make me aware of their intention to pass us on the thin sidewalk.

“Excuse us.”

Ok then….

What can a girl do but burst a bit red and carry on?

My life.

    Maybe the well-shod gentlemen were just admiring your voice!

    I’m sure you made their day and gave them a beautiful and funny story to share!
    I want to hear you sing that song!

    Cathy, with your spirit of joy and honesty of expression you made me smile and laugh, again!! If this is schizophrenia, BRING IT ON! Thank you for sharing and allowing yourself to feel the love and joy that is accessible in this very moment. Your courage is inspiring. Much love to you.
