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.

Portrait Of My Father

Here's a portrait I just did of my father in gouache taken from a photograph I took recently of him. I might turn these portraits of my parents into acrylic on canvas paintings. I'm not sure because I have a lot of photographs to work from now.
