May the Five Energies of Love,Prosperity,Happiness,Health, and Peace be yours in the New Year!
Goddess of the night
She silently envelops the sky as the quiet descends on all.
Her garments are dotted with the stars and she holds stars in her hands.
Her hair has millions of stars shining amid her tresses.
She comes quietly singing as she lulls me into that awake/sleep
that has been so common lately; those awake/dreams that are so familiar--
Times of those past lives (that seem so much in the ”now”).
They roll by blending into the ... read more

My brain still recovering from last year's stroke, I continue to make art, dream, ponder
Assemblage by LFIRE(c)2018
This is an assemblage: a painted frame that incorporates rollers at the bottom,
a metal cabinet door pull at the top, rusted hinges on the sides.
The main elements are distressed packaging, wooden frame covered with sparkle ribbon
that holds a rusted gas cap, a rusted saw blade and a small pipe.
The background consists of acrylic paint and collaged magazine pictures.
Yes, I have done many collages since the stroke, but this is the first assemblage I have attempted.
Vision is its own authority.

Vision 83 d
Recently I found out that I need to have cataract surgery.
I have been freaking out. Lots of thoughts and worries.
"Vision" collage by LFIRE(c)2018
I want to see!
I think about my perception.
How long has my perception been skewed?
I worry at the thought.
Like a cow chewing their cud, my brain goes over and over the same issues.
Can’t seem to see any new answers...
Can’t see beyond the current reality.
I WANT TO SEE! I NEED TO SEE!
My eyes, now blurry, are not focusing well.
What if they are never able to see well again?
Worry. I play over and over that worry.
Out of the depths I have cried ...
Is it possible for anything to grow in ... read more
Surrender and Trust! 4 mon
More post-stroke insights
Collage Art Card by LFIRE(c)2018
Surrender to the thought that maybe a different healing can take place.
I am not in charge?
I need to remove all ego from the healing that I seek.
It can come about in a different way,
[use the misspelling to chart the course.]
A NUU DAZ. A new day.
A new purpose, or a different perspec ... read more
Insights,Runes,& Fire! 5 mon
Surrounded by fire, I've been having more insights and revelations in this difficult month
Art by LFIRE(c)2018
I was asked for a more complete version of the experience I had in the hospital after I had the stroke last December. It seems I had given a really superficial version. So here goes:
I was in the hospital bed; the nurses were busy hooking up equipment. I was really cold. I asked for more blankets, but still felt cold after I received more. After awhile, the nurses completed their tasks and I was left alone. I felt ”funny”. Then I started to feel a point of heat at the bottom of my spine; it began to m ... read more
Smoke and Fire 6 mon
Smoke and Fire all around me, I continue to make art, write poetry, and gain insights since my stroke.
Art since the stroke by LFIRE(c)2018
It is dark.
It seems that it has been dark a long time.
Endlessly waiting for some glimmer of light on the horizon.
The imagination constructs clouds and rainbows;
These flash a reminder of wishes of a distant past.
It is quiet.
The ears strain for any small sound.
There is none.
Silent motion creeps around.
Is there some hint of light?
Is this only imagination?
It seems that a tiny breeze blows.
A small light seems to appear.
The light grows larger.
Beyond all hope or expectation,
it is true.
The light is ... read more
A Tale from Long Ago... 7 mon
A Story from long ago...
Art by LFIRE(c)2018
This is a tale of long, long ago and far, far away.
I am just the story teller and it is up to you to believe the story or not.
Once upon a time there was a planet up in the sky.
It was merrily drifting along, and the people on it were content.
However, there came a time the planet had a big problem.
The planet’s air was lacking an essential element...gold.
So they sent scouting parties out to the nearby planets
to find a good place to mine for gold.
They found a great place which they called Earth.
On Earth, they set about mining gold.

Seeing beyond the 3-D world: More insights and art post-stroke
”Chocolate 2” by LFIRE(c)2018
Walking on the mirror
wanting to leave no footprints.
But, looking back,
deep impressions can be seen
where the path has led.
Like dry mud caking
on every step
the past journey leaves the
some footprints deeper than others,
but the journey is clear.
The quest now seems to be to leave
even smaller footprints,
to leave the mirror unscathed.
how it seeps into everything!
It lurks around
convincing that it is not there.
It hides in the corner
innocently smiling sweetly
yet its tentacles ever snipping

More art and spiritual musings since I've had my stroke.
Recent Collage Art ”Chocolate 01” by LFIRE (c)2018
What is in-between
where we are
(where we THINK we are
where we imagine we are.....)
and where we think we are going?
Why do we think that the star brothers /people are not real
when there are ancient writings, and buildings that prove this?
Why do we think that they were not here,
or that the knowledge they passed on to us is not on-going?
Or that there is far more than only this galaxy and the dramas of this 3rd dimension,

More From the Stroke 11 mon
More messages from Spirit since I've had my stroke.
Here are two art pieces that I’ve done since my stroke
Art and Photos by LFIRE(c)2018
Love is the answer
Gratitude is the vessel
And the song is you.
The answer is not in DOING
The secret is in BEING!
Since the stroke, more and more awareness of things I have wondered about are revealed.
Knowledge just seems to show up. Things that no one seems to talk about and that people think are true (that people KNOW are true) really aren’t true!!!

New Year Message 12 mon
Strange things are happening...
It seemed like an ordinary day.
But then, I started slurring my speech and not being able to say words.
My son rushed me to the hospital.
I was having a stroke.
Later in my hospital room, I slipped into a deep “trance” state.
Large volumes of life passed by. The 3-D no longer had any hold and I watched it pass
with no concern.
I was here,
yet I was not here.
Great Spirit, show me the next step!
Show me the path.
Do I move on to a different world? A different dimension?
I could hear the clamber of things moving.
Now, I am again in the hospital room.
Thank ... read more

Art: 2017 Year in Review, part 1 13 mon
A look back on 2017 through a year-long art project. The first three months...
Art is a process...sometimes things don’t start out too well and need alterations. The first of the year, I had planned to do an altered book for the whole year...a collage or more for each month depicting whatever was going on in my life. I completed the month of January, started on February...and ran out of pages in the book I was using! After figuring out what to do, I was able to remove the art I had completed from the first book and put it into a new, multi-paged art journal, and then kept on making collage art month-to-month.
Here are photos of the first three months--January thr ... read more
State of Our NOW 13 mon
Moving into the higher dimensions. Experimenting with mixed media abstract art.
Ever since the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012, we have been in a very uneasy state. In a way, we were unhappy that everything didn’t change overnight, yet at the same time, we were afraid of the tiny changes that were happening.
Our bodies and emotions seemed to be going through immense stress and strange contortions. Then we started to notice that those in power were getting caught in their wrong deeds. The mighty were starting to fall. Emotions were boiling over and all kinds of mass shootings and violence were headlines in the news more and more frequently. It is interesting to ... read more
