It came on slowly. I did’t know what was happening. I kept working and didn’t really understand that I had changed. This is a work I did for my niece Debbie. It is what my mind feels like now. It is electric, bright, jumpy, moving and vibrating with energy I can’t control.

I don’t know that I can’t do what I did before, but if I stare at the paper long enough, something comes. I am happy. I travel back to all the wonderful experiences I have had in my life and I am at peace.
