(I don't know what that title means either...) Moonlight slippin' in thru the window... In Victorian times, MOONLIGHT was said to revive a vampire (both Varney and Ruthven, specifically.) I wonder if it will revive me??? "Lunar Window"[Digital photo...

[Crayon on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color tweaking. 2020.] Had the grandkid over for a few hours today. She's a ball of energy. Unfortunately, her grandpa is a broken, old goblin! My back is shitty, so as much as I WANT to...

"Looking at the Popcorn on the Ceiling..." by Richard F. Yates

Who looked up in their house one day and went, "You know that flat ceiling is pretty boring. I wish it was all bumpy instead!"???  It's weird. But this is a rental house, so we can't very well remodel... Well, I guess we COULD, but the owners might n...

[Ink and paint pen on reclaimed cardboard with digital embellishments and color.] Art isn't a MEANS to something else for me---to money or fame or high society---maybe (in a small way) it's a bid towards immortality, but only in a secondary sense---...
