Ideas for The New Year
“Hold an umbrella in one hand and a surprise in the other!”
Find a new book, make some terrible art work. Get lost in a new city. Explore good magic and keep learning new skills! Write a poem, bake some cookies for a friend. Make a treasure map, and if you find a new key in the clue, make a copy!
Perhaps the most important of all, sing your favorite song, loud and clear and don’t worry so much about the harmony!
Put some shade and color in your day.
Who cares what they say: Make some art!
What is light and what is shadow?

~Three for the road.
Poem for Sunday Shake
I had painted in October, inside the tune of the day
Was lured by autumn’s crisp ink
Central to the song you came, internal colors
Titian, untitled and cool.
Shake it off, shake it off.
~Fools are poets with invisible wings and colorful brushes.
We are a very small species interlacing through a tiny sector of time and nature.
~ Everything is connected.

Winter delivers strange tokyo angel.
Flight through the franchise.
I saw it, I heard it —>Metropolitan colors vertical,
White calls giant metal rectangles
Float through the neon.
I spoke it, I learned it —>Urban violet spreads,
“Through purple tulips, alchemy and the wild wood, protecting the magic.”
Guardián de la casa de magia.
~Through the trees I saw two mysterious koropokkuru
having fun by the great mount Fuji.
Painting and working with oils again.
“Behold the ghost of the lady from Sengoku.”
