Halloween one

October 31, 2013

“You have forever ruined mermaids for me.” One Friday morning in late October of 2008, I got a completely unexpected text from DK. (Neither of us were big texters then; we very rarely exchanged them. More’s the pity we didn’t keep it at that in the following years.) He would be finishing up an appointment […]

Octobers

October 22, 2013

November 8, 2011 is probably the biggest red letter day in my relationship with DK. I think even more so than the dreadful January day in 2008 when I learned that he was not the single father I believed him to be, but a (apparently) happily married man. That was a very bad day. November […]

Summer showers

“You’re such a hippie!” (The summer shower art was created & posted here last summer, but the story is new today in honor of the Summer Solstice.) DK always grinned when he said that to me, usually with a gentle poke to my belly. I don’t think of myself as a hippie, but I didn’t […]

The sky is overcast and the wind is intermittently whipping through the neighborhood trees, making a soft whooshing sound that ebbs and flows. […]

The annual Visual Speedbump Tour (aka the Oak Cliff Art Studio Tour) is today. My home is one of the stops on the free, self-guided tour. Most of the art created for Half Agony, Half Hope will be on display in my studio.  Artists Scott Winterrowd and Gillian Bradshaw-Smith will be joining me and showing […]

Yoo-hoo good

March 4, 2013

So few things are yoohoo good. Oh, what a glorious day! Windy and warm, canopied with a cloudless, infinite Texas sky: today has been a brilliant, early March Sunday. It lifted me into such a happy mood it seemed right to record a happy DK memory. The Yoo-hoo days came to mind: a span of […]
