I have not blogged for a while.

No excuses, but an explanation is deserved and is necessary. My blog is and was intended to share my bits of totally random art, share messages and accept challenges. It was not intended to share my personal life.

I do feel that I need to explain the reason for my non-creative contributions and/or non contributions.

On 28 June my Mom of 82 was attacked by a boerbul (a large dog) He scalped my Mom and bit her arm which she raised to defend herself. Her wounds are severe. Thank goodness the danger period of infection has passed. The healing is slow. A skin graft can only be done when sufficient granulation has taken place.

After that shock I can honestly not put the sequence of events into any logical order. Life has been a blur! We are living one minute at a time.

This was one challenge I could not foresee and at times feel, I cannot meet.

My Mom is in severe pain and I can’t take it away or make it better.

All I can ask is that if you belong to any prayer or healing group, please put my Mom on it.

With much appreciation and thanks



Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.
