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.

This is a painting based on a photograph by someone named Photo Mojo. I got the photograph from Flickr. I'm discovering some nice photographs to paint on Flickr. I feel a bit like an image junkie trolling for images to paint. I find now that I'm making up songs again that I need to have paintings to work on to balance me out.
