Karma Sweet Karma
Check out my latest collage I made. Sweet, right?
I've been incorporating little typed papers into lots of things lately, inspired by an artist I'm working with on a very cool project that will come out later in 2012. Her use of typed words inspired me to buy a typewriter from ebay. I've been typing up a storm. It opens up so many new possibilities with journal work and collage work.
It's that thing you hope will come around ... as you patiently wait for the same bad habits to play out as it has so many times in the past. It's something that you can't warn anyone about because no one will believe you. You just have to wait for the heinous behaviors to rear its ugly head ... because the sad truth about the wretched is that they never learn. And when past victims smile at the arrival of karma, the wretched whine that anyone dare smile. They wonder why their pillow is so rock hard, and why the valium no longer works, as they spin tales that get more and more tangled, and they cling onto quotes they don't understand, like "I would rather learn from one bird how to sing than to teach 10,000 stars how not to dance." They surround themselves with the next batch of unknowing stars and birds who eventually get fried to a crisp. It's hell on earth. But here's what I've learned:
The best ornament is Humility.
The richest wealth is Wisdom.
The strongest weapon is Patience.
The best security is Faith.
The best tonic is Laughter.
Bravo to the stars and birds who, after preparing for the sail, have escaped or are planning their escape ... as they find their own path, and learn that thankfully, there is goodness and kindness and peace on this earth to be found. Thank God.
Trust me on this: Everything will be OK.
Onward and upward.
