Don't Talk Like That...

I write to find out what my heart thinks....
I write to expose and work through the ugly parts of this disease, open heart surgery that was less than successful and more recently an S-ICD (internal cardiac defibrillator) implanted in my chest that will hopefully restore my heart beat in case of sudden cardiac death. I am here to celebrate my life, to uncover my fears, to hold on to love, to learn how to live a full life with heart failure, to honor my creativity, and to explore all of my emotions out loud ...before anyone can say
"Don't talk like that!"


Music is loading really slow lately...sorry...

Creativity is the greatest rebellion in existence!

detail of "Careful with My Words" 35 x 48
Working on pieces for Nude Nite gave me the outrageous opportunity to emotionally work through my latest cardiology reports.

Three pages about my test results, my general “non-compliant” attitude (I would like to mention here that those who complied are dead or will die, too) and down grading my disease to stage 3 heart failure. Book pages in the textured background are torn out of the book “The End of Faith” by Sam Harris hide my latest medical report also incorporated in the image texture.

It was necessary for me to marry those 2 pieces of written work behind the image “Careful with My Words”. The work rebels, it tells the truth, and still it keeps my secrets!

Whether I get in to Nude Nite or not, I have worked through the emotions. It really is the greatest rebellion!  art heals!
