the freaks come out in the night...

"What are your aspirations for the future? To me, You appear to be a dreamer.. "

I want to cover myself head to toe in body art, plait my hair with jewels and ribbons and be an art therapist somewhere by the sea.

I want to represent the freaks, the werido's and inhabit a world of dreams, where things definitely go bump in the night. I can't stop listening to Krishna Das and Fever Ray. When the new year hit, i was definitely considering getting one and two new tattoo's. The first would be on my thumb and it would say "I am third". This phrase has a lot of meaning to me and really sums up the way I would like to live my life.  The second would be on the inside of my wrist and say, "Om Namah Shivaya" and "Om Shanti, Shanti, Shanti".

Namah Shivata is the mantra that is among the foremost and powerful of all mantra's. Na is the Lord's concealing grace, Ma is the world, Si stands for Siva, Ca is His revealing grace, Ya is the soul.

the freaks come out in the night and I happen to find darkness fascinating. I feel the dark mixed with grace creates the perfect attitude, especially for now. Tonight I'm going to be curlded up in a bundle in bed with candles burning and grizzly bear playing in the background as I write frantically in my sketchbook.

What a lovely way with words, is that the way you see the world?
