My Bio
"Holy-sh*t-Madame-the sky-is touching-your-nose" trippy!

I hadn't realized that it's been YEARS since I'd written that profile!

I guess that's because I've been kept very busy for those years. However, a long-awaited update:

I've been published: The Stone Circle Oracle, which can be found here-- www.schifferbooks.com/the-ston…

I will be published again! This time you can find the art in the slide show to your left. The deck will be all male energies, with characters drawn (literally) from Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Biblical, and Ancient Near Eastern traditions.

I have had three paintings published in the We'moon on the Wall calendar, which is nationally distributed. They are "I Rise Up, Not Without Help," "Badger Knows All in the Earth, Hawk Knows All in the Sky," and "Figure THIS One Out!"

Despite all this, I'm still not famous. LOL

The Springer Spaniels are still springy.

I'm still camping at Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary, and am on the Board of Directors, the gods help me.

My daughter is now about to turn 22, the gods help me even more!

Oracle Decks!

Oracle Decks!

You may not realize this, but I'm also a published author! This is the Stone Circle Oracle, my first publication, which includes 50 GORGEOUS cards (with another nod to the graphics department at Schiffer Books!) and a book with journal space so that you can write down what you see in the images. Many of the paintings in the "Major Paintings" Gallery are featured in this publication. It's a great way to own a whole lot of my art, even if you don't have room on your walls! You can order directly from my publisher, Schiffer Publishing https://www.schifferbooks.com/the-stone-circle-oracle-transformation-through-meditation-5354.html You can also find it on Amazon or Barnes & Noble. My second publication, the Promethean Oracle, which is co-authored with my dear friend Mark Cogan, was nominated for ORACLE DECK OF THE YEAR two years ago. The artwork for this deck was done in colored pencil on black paper, and features male entities from Mesopotamian, Egyptian, Greek, and Biblical

Today's Reality

Today's Reality

 On October 11, I received a Letter of Censure from the Board of Directors.  All I had done was resign from the "church" and the Board:  they concocted a HELL of a reason for banning me.  Last week I read the letter out loud and OMG I may just post the audio. Notes:  Orren Whiddon is the guy who founded the place        Carrie is the President        Kailin is the other President        Roger is another President (don't ask)        Tubuan are body masks from New Ireland, which is part of Papua New Guinea        Hemlock Hole is the family swimming hole, washed out, needed stairs, I raised the money        Patricia is my good frien

Gone.

Gone.

 I wrote this in 2011, about a place I loved.  Was it all a dream? To quote Phil Collins:  "I gave it all, and it's gone, and I gave it all to you, now I'm living on borrowed time, but it's mine." The original article ran in the 2012 Wheel of the Year, the annual publication of Four Quarters Interfaith Sanctuary.  It describes something that is...not there anymore: Though we ourselves can never know in which direction someone’s development ought to go, that person’s dreams “know” it.
