My Ancestor Altar

Mixed Media Art

I was finally able to put up my ancestor altar. I haven't put it up since I moved out here to the city three years ago. It took a while. I was looking for a suitable cabinet and other acoutrements, like the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" image. I still lack a cross. I think I'm going to make a cloth sculptured one. I can't find one I like.

Just click the picture above to see more pictures of the altar. Its a work in progress so I'll probably end up changing and adding to it in the future. I'll posts picts of it as I do so.

Returning From the Grave

I'm finally back online. I've been away for almost six months. I wasn't able to buy a new pc until now so I've been busy doing other stuff I could get my hands on just to get over the withdrawal symptoms of not being online and not using a computer. Whew! I'm glad its finally over.

Check out my new works at Hah! Actual tangible proof of a prolific-almost-six-month-hiatus from the web.

Birthday Wish

At the moment, I wish this is the state of my mind, blank and without worries. Hah! It is actually teeming with unwanted thoughts about issues that have not been settled and circumstances that have proved to be immutable. Its a terrible thing to find yourself in a circumstance you are powerless to change. "Surrender to the will of heaven" comes to mind, yes.

Anyway, check out my new creature. I have cause to celebrate besides my birthday.

House/ Home Dilemna

"I never earned enough to consider buying a house and now that I do I'm too old to do so." That was what I was thinking when I made this page.

I am faced with the choice of buying a house within the next two years of be faced with the probability of renting for the rest of my life. Not very promising prospects eh. Very disconcerting and very depressing indeed.

So I've decided to stay another year here at my flat. Finish the grad school thesis and then take steps to be in escrow. A scary thought, that. I'm aiming for a 10 year arrangment. I just don't like the prospects of anything longer than that. Its dreadfully freightening, actually.

Now, then, there's the matter of mustering up enough courage to do this all by myself. Wish me success on that, dear void, or whoever is out there that might be compelled enough to comment.

Three Levels of Creation

The text reads, "As God created me, so do I create myself by living my life with the intention of self realization. As I fulfill my sacred contract I honor mymaker by being true to who I am. 3levelsofcreation.jpg
