I post so erratically here and I think it's a time lapse issue. I thought I just posted yesterday. NOPE! 4 DAYS AGO! What?? Where have I been? On a personal note, I'm practically gone nuts. I'm so focused on my May "holiday", but not in a productive way, but more in a doomsday kind of way. Like, it's some huge deadline. I wanted to plan the trip, buy the travel tix, get some discounted sightseeing tix, pass my driver's test (license expires very very soon). But I am only getting my work schedules 24 hours in advance because the ones they put up seem to be fake placeholders, so that I can't schedule anything. The last week or so has been a mad flurry of weird little things just going wrong (is astrology real??) . As a result, I'm not sleeping well, I'm breaking out into eczema constantly and all I hear inside of myself is this strange guttural wailing. Huh. I think I need to start keeping written journals again.
Back to the imagery at hand! So I did the charming amethyst painting to illustrate a fun dream. Here's a nightmare! Speaking of written journals, I was browsing through one from 2001, and found a description of a dream in which I found myself in the afterlife. Spoilers, we end up at the DMV, in case you were wondering. There, a bleeding child needed my help returning to the land of the living to track down a devil she invoked there. I had to fill out a form (remember, we die at the DMV). I had to be a member of a special union. A tear opened up in front of us, which darkened my vision and was announced by cats screaming (eek). The girl warned me that traveling through the tear could rip me apart, but before I could react someone just pushed me right in. It ended with me arriving at a dinner, but I guess that bit with the screaming cats kind of stuck with me.
Hello! I'm Melissa, and here you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of an artful life. Won't you join me?
