I’m a little low on creative and physical energy right now. I’m slogging my way through, though, and working on some and decluttering and home organizational projects, so I can (hopefully) start making some more art.

I’m going to take some time to replenish my energy stores. In the meantime, I’ll be reblogging a few older posts. Thank you for the well wishes and Please know I’m thinking of all my blogging companions and will get back to writing when I’m feeling better.

Needless to say, I have trouble maintaining all them.  It makes sense to compartmentalize them…but it ended up being more than I could handle. Meh, c’est la vie.

It’s not…

About Casey

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!’ ~ Jack Kerouac, On The Road Again
