Sometimes it is hard to make sense of things. I don't have the words to express the deep sadness I feel about events like the Aurora, Colorado shootings. The cinema is where I go to shut off the world and immerse myself in the story played out on the screen.

I have created a new piece called "I am my own Lover." Digital fine art, created in Illustrator, Photoshop, and KPT. It is based on a theme I have been working on over the last week. Loving yourself for all the brilliant and flawed parts of your integrated self.

This is my new piece: "The Way of the Mystic." It is based on my Saturn symbol degree in Dane Rudhyar's book The Astrological Mandala; A woman draws away two dark curtains closing the entrance to a sacred pathway. It is all created in Photoshop, and some of my photography is included. I have had a couple days off over the 4th of July and used that time to work on my art. Today I feel rested, balanced, in touch with my inner life. I am glad for those days when I can drop out, shut the door on our hectic world, to find sustenance in the world of my imagination. I think if I could not make art, I would wither away to nothingness. A mere shadow inhabiting the world. A ghost of my former self.
