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.

Exploring Mixed Media
Worked all day today on these three pieces. I've been gathering up my supplies and getting more supplies this week. I do not know what I'm doing and that's part of the fun of it. I got a ton of stencils some plastic, most cardboard. I've ordered some spray inks. I'd never heard of those until I started reading a book on art journaling. I wouldn't say that I'm really journaling. No words yet, but I am exploring. It's keeping me busy instead of sitting around feeling depressed. Right now my favorite piece out of the three is the one in the middle, but I don't know why.
