Everything is gonna be just fine

This was a big weekend for me. It was a very quiet, relaxed weekend, but it was still very big. For the first time in a long time, I feel truly good about myself, and proud of myself. I am really happy with the wonderful things in my life, and the wonderful people. Here's part of a painting I experimented with using textured paper and a cut-out self-portrait. It needs some work, but it's coming along.

(a few Anais Nin quotes, enjoy...)

"Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it." ( I plan to)

"Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country." ( I also plan to)

"I will not be just a tourist in the world of images, just watching images passing by which I cannot live in, make love to, possess as permanent sources of joy and ecstasy."

Hope everyone has a great week!
