Memoria in aeterna
To say that Cassandra was an influence on my life, is like saying the ocean is big. Such simple words cannot convey the vastness, the complexities, and the intricacies of who she was to me.
She was so large a part of my life, that with the naivety of the young, I assumed she would forever be there. She was an unchanging force from my childhood, a rock through my youth, and a friend in my adulthood. It still seems hard to fathom that she is gone.
I want to tell you who she was to me:
She was my inspiration. I remember watching her draw, and swallowing up every pencil stroke. I'd ask questions, and she'd slowly go over lines, telling me the purpose behind every one.
She was a teacher. I'd listen to the adult conversations around me, following along as best I could. When I became lost in the tangle of multi-syllabic vocabulary, Cassandra would write down the word for me, so I could look it up in a dictionary, and understand for myself.
She was a friend. When my grandf

Well, shit. It’s been a whole year and I haven’t been here. I created beautiful art for my friends though, and have been busy and active in the real world. I work with animals doing health and nutrition, and I do shelter outreach programs. Life is interesting, and I love it, but I miss the presence of art. I’m hoping to make this my year to bring back my photography. I have plenty of work to upload here, because I have been taking photos, just not really uploading them. So you’ll probably see something soon. When I’m not on my phone that is...

Oh, well... Hello there

I'm not sure I remember how to do this anymore. It's been a while.

I've been super busy, don't have a camera, and not much inspiration, but I'm still alive, and well.

I'll.. see what I can dig up, or something.

Ahem.. How are you guys?
