yin-yang

you know those days where you can just smell
hope
in the wind
& it seems like something good is bound to
be?

you know those days when your heart just feels
heavy
& you cry for no reason…
or for a lost reason…
or maybe there are just so many reasons you can’t even separate them
anymore?

that’s me grown up, and me as a girl–a two-fer self-portrait. if you are wondering, i did look like eddie munster as a child.

i’m not sure i captured what was in my mind, but i am happy that i got pretty close.

also!

another bonus for those of you who actually read this…my future in greeting cards…i painted this huntress for my sister-in-law’s birthday card. i thought it turned out okay for just winging it.huntress

overall, i am going to rate myself with three stars today. haha.

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, homesteading, fermenting, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.
