A Recovery Blog
This blog is about my continuing recovery from severe mental illness. I celebrate this recovery by continuing to write, by sharing my music and artwork and by exploring Buddhist ideas and concepts. I claim that the yin/yang symbol is representative of all of us because I have found that even in the midst of acute psychosis there is still sense, method and even a kind of balance. We are more resilient than we think. We can cross beyond the edge of the sane world and return to tell the tale. A deeper kind of balance takes hold when we get honest, when we reach out for help, when we tell our stories.

A Couple Of Recent Paintings
The top painting is of Bev's daughter Liana, unfortunately it is not in focus. The original is better. The second painting is of Ronda and her daughter Shelby. Both paintings are done in gouache. It's a tentative return to painting for me after not painting for over a month.
