Mi vida Loca


Hello out there! I have been distant, I have been absent, I am strange, passionate and above all mysteriously weird! I am also funny. Not many of you know the quirky side of me, or the business side of me either. Most of you only know the dark side of me, but there is a very bright and sunny side of me as well. 

My life the last six months has been incredibly hard. My parents needed my help and still do, so I agreed at great personal loss to assist them both. My father has told me that my presence with them has greatly improved their life and that makes me very happy. My choice to move back home and help them has dramatically changed my life. My professional life has gone through a very rough period as well. I sell New Homes and It has been a very rough period for my industry. I have persevered in all of the above. I weathered the business storm, and am doing well as of late. Financially the rewards will cascade in, in about 3 months. That is a relief! I work hard to self promote my art as well, It is a crazy dream that I want to realize. 

What is a typical day for me like? Well I get up at about 7:30 am get ready for work drink coffee, talk to a special friend, and open my office. I work until 7pm, head home, and relieve my dad in caring for my mom until 10 pm. I usually go online for an hour read my emails.....Hey why does every viagra vendor on the planet want to sell me their product??? Oh not to mention the slurry of Russian women that want to make their groom? I am pretty popular in the Ukraine from the amount of spam proposals I get! Lol! I go to bed and start it all over. I don't have much time for anything else. I have a lil bar i go to from time to time named Spanky's. I relax sing Karaoke and hang out with friends. I don't paint much now as I have no space to do so. That is a big thing with me. I really want to rent a space. I will do that sometime soon I hope. I am not complaining but yesterday I relaxed and played poker all night.I was with my friends and we drank way too much. Boy today was rough as my hangover was intense. Whew I made it! Never underestimate the power of friendship! 

A very special friend talked me home and made sure I was ok, and actually talked to me for nearly 2 hours as I was in a state of groggy fuzzy haze. I won't be doing that again anytime soon I assure you all. I am happy to be feeling normal again. I know this is random but .....Well I am pretty random! I had a local realtor ask me to donate a painting for a silent auction benefiting the family of Mike Coolbaugh. A local minor league coach that was tragically killed last year in a freak accident on the field in Oklahoma. I went to High School with his brother Scott, who was a Major league player for many years. I accepted without hesitation. I am not looking for any networking in this one. I feel honored to be able to help in a small way. I love red wine, and green eyes. I am genuine, and foolish at times. Who isn't? I have a blogger friend that inspires me to be more than I think I can be. Without knowing it she pushes me closer to my goals every day. Its nice to have such a strong voice of reason in my life. Sometimes critical, sometimes not. Always there, and always interesting. Thanks Ileana! Was that random?

The DeEvolution of America








I finally figured out how to get my lil movie onto youtube!  It only took a week or so.  I hope you enjoy.  It is not a cheery type of short film nor is it gloomy.  However it does make a statement of our troubled times.  Sorry it took so long.  I know a few of you were awaiting its arrival.  Such is the life of a would be artist....

S.O.S. America

videoThis is an extremely rough first try at videography and editing. I will get better. It is titled "S.O.S. America". It was difficult for me to film and post my scar (cancer) but I did.

Post Script: In answer to my blogger buddy Shionge: I had a great time doing this. I have always wanted to do interesting little clips like this, I was watching the republican national convention just prior to putting it together, so.......maybe that was it. Most of my creativity comes out morose or angry or muted. However that doesn't mean I am any of those at the time of creation. Just reflective maybe. :-) Fun Times ahead!

Words

video

This is a poem I found quite intriguing. No meaning behind or in it really, just a really nice poem. The video was of me of course just listening..Tell me about how words affect you in your day to day life? Words we all speak them, some of us listen others just speak. Words can be beautiful, angry, heartfelt, and shallow. Words can describe life or not...... What do these words mean to you?
