Dear Kelly Rae Roberts,

Thank you for setting me on fire.


I’ve made another collage, and now I’m walking around today with an excited kind of tickle in my body.  It’s that same feeling I get when I’m in the groove with a story–a feeling of creation, of expression, of doing something that only I can do.

It’s nice to use all the senses.  For me, writing is really about hearing.  It’s about the music and rhythm of the language.  I hear the stories talking, and I write them down.  But collage, of course, is about the eyes–and it’s so fun to do visual things.  

Sometimes it’s frustrating to have a brain like mine.  Like when I can’t figure out what day it is.  Or when I’ve lost my keys again.  But when I’m making things, like I am so often these days ever since Lovebomb, it’s pretty great.

    It’s beautiful! I love doing collage. I am in the midst of turning our den into my art studio. Then I never have to put a work in progress away!
    It’s exciting and fulfilling to be so inspired!

  3. i am so stinkin proud and inspired and wow’d!!!
    i seriously LOVE this canvas, like for reals. omg!

    and that feeling – i know it, too. for me, it’s similar to the feelings we have as a kid the morning after christmas when you all of the sudden remember that something special happened yesterday (in this case, you made something) and that it’s waiting for you to see it all over again. you know?

  4. simply fabulous!
    I am enjoying reading “everyone is beautiful” – a little bit each night before I go to bed, makes me chuckle – wonderfully written – a joyful treat!

  5. You have this amazing way of saying exactly how I feel better than I can say it myself.
