Well, here is one of my favorite paintings by Paul Klee. A Swiss genius who really inspired me way back in the 70s. This is called “Fish Magic” and I first saw it in our Childcraft Encyclopedias back when I was 5 or 6. I get lost in it, it is a treasure. This leads to my recent debacle with the antidepressant “Cymbalta” which is poison to me. This I found out the hard way…and increasing it showed me how right I was to stop taking it. I had become someone else. NO benefit! I have been off of it now since New Years Eve day. I have had some withdrawals that I have tolerated with the help of my friends and my Mom. It has been 9 days. I am getting my silly self back. Enough so that I have been creating things again, 2 pieces so far and will have another done by Monday. I will do a little fish picture like Klee, too. Gotta get me some thicker paint in tubes for that. What has Nugene done that has caused me to get better? She is a constant, as is Tami. They are both a big part of my mental health, we will be plotting something for the future later today but I just want to say thank you to both of them and to Momma for helping me get through this, also a word of thanks to Jim for being there, too. Because of my friends, I will make it.
On another note, I purposely watched the movie “Species” last night just because it is so bad and the dialogue is ridiculous and it is the worst casting ever! I laughed out loud. Then I watched the end and it occurred to me that I have never watched the ending of it…what a turd. It was funny though. Lots of goo and monster parts. Michael Madsen with his downward glance for 2 hrs. Forest Whitaker with his squint and incredible empathetic self to annoy. Board straight Ben Kingsley stating the obvious throuout the movie…Alfred Molina with a unibrow and lastly Marg Hemingway as a biologist with a bad hairdo. It’s a festival of badness.
On my agenda for today is a football game. The Texans. I am afraid to see which head of the quarterback monster will be playing. I will be cringing along with Nugene in a little bit. I will be posting my artwork on Facebook later. Hint, they are for sale…! Today I started a savings account with 75.00. I feel pretty good. I am thankful to God for my new life. I am moving up and out! Peace.
