  1. lol...I see what you did there, yer Grace. Nice puncraft.
  2. What's up Doc? Great post! I spent my summers in Lafayette and NO LA growing up. Though I don't practice, I have a deep respect for and interest in Voodoo. For people that have been to southern LA, they can attest to how strong the spirit vibe is there--like nowhere else on earth! That was where I first realized that spirits are everywhere and if we open ourselves up to them, we will become residents of a much bigger and more meaningful world. There really is no down time.
  3. I play a little harmonica, even less piano, and I have a banjo to look at but not much else. I recently bought a Native American flute that I am really loving....I really want a hand drum but It's a little out of my price range.
  4. This is a new pic I did today. It was based on a dream a couple nights back. I dreamed I met one the coolest people I ever knew back in GA. St. EOM from Pasaquan in Beuna Vista...He died many years ago but his legacy lives on: http://www.pasaquan.blogspot.com/
  5. Ha! The pizza was Super-Deluxe, the kind with green olives and ham that you have to pay extra for. And in answer to your other question, I don't do well with rosemary. Thanks to all y'all for the kind welcome!
  6. "The universe is a big place, perhaps the biggest." -Guru Kurt Vonnegut When looking at this photo from the hubble telescope, I wonder....is there ANYONE out there who gets my jokes?!
  7. Merrily, merrily merrily, merrily, Life is but a dream.

  8. Here's a good one I came across this morning: "Prepare for the difficult while it is still easy. Deal with the big while it is still small. Difficult undertakings have always started with what's easy. Great undertakings always started with what is small. Therefore the sage never strives for the great, And thereby the great is achieved." --Tao te Ching, Lao Tse
  9. You are correct sir! He's called Night Stalker. I made it my new year's resolution to try and do at least 2 pics a month. It's been a long time since drew anything but i'm trying to get back into it.
  10. Hi all! I am new to the forum. It's sooo great to talk philosophy, spirituality, etc. with people who are open and willing to experiment with new ideas. Among other things, I like to draw. Lately, I've found it very theraputic to draw some of the scenes, motifs, and characters that pop up in my dreams. I'm pretty New-Agey and I am always looking from the hidden meanings in everything I come in contact with. Below is a pic I did last week. I call this guy "The Dreamon". He delivered pizza to me in a dream. (I guess being a dreamon doesn't pay the bills)
  11. What no Pansexual Peace Party???!!! Dude, you need to expand the parameters on you poll.
  12. Emerson may hate quotations, but I love them. They give me fuel for meditation, inspiration, and motivation. They can inform and enrich my own philosophies about life, the universe, and everything...one book called them patches of godlight. Here are a few of my current favorites below. Please send me some of your favorites too. "Everything's got a moral, if only you can find it." --Lewis Carroll "Real religion before God is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world." --James 1:27 "Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you'll look back and realize they were big things.” --Kurt Vonnegut "All men are by nature equal, made all of the same earth and by one Workman; and however we deceive ourselves, the poor peasant is as dear to God as the mighty prince." --Plato "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit." --My Granny
  13. err...maybe this is just a synatx thing, but there's no such thing as a "The Baptist Church." The are baptist churches but a central tennet of the baptist doctrine is that there is no higher ecclesiastical authority than the local church. Hence, there is no denomination...only fellowships, conventions, and associations but no centralized authority. The correct title should have been "Man Sues A Baptist Church."
