Spilling Life Forc..

spilling life force

Last night’s dream was a new one. I generally have the same recurring dreams I’ve had for years, even decades. But this one ended with me sporting blue hair. When I posted about the dream on Facebook to get some dream interpretation, one comment struck a chord that sparked my imagination for today’s daily art. Here’s what […]

Sketch notes in my altered book during a message today titled “Plunge Into Hope.” This was the second message about hope, something of which I have been in dire need of lately.
