We lie with the Fates from our first conception; for it is said—and truly too—that flesh is built up over the ones at birth by the caresses of those star-guarding harlots whose pawed passage clings there like a cloth, just as the soul in our life is the silted delta of the sense, their accumulated fat; and it is Clotho whose touch becomes our tissue, and Atropos who trims it to the shape we’ll take, and Lachesis who then stitches it about us like a shroud; so when we go to ground, as eventually we must, we lose our lusts with our linens, arising on the last day as clean and shriven as the one on which we were begot.
Hey folks I’ve been released from my surgery for my carpal tunnel. My wrist is a little sore but it’s worth it for the future! It went well the only tough thing was the nurses finding a vain in my arm for the IV! I was dehydrated so note to anyone who’s thinking of surgery.
Nurse mama is gonna be on me like a hawk for the next few weeks so no new art for a while.

“You think you’re any different from me, or your friends, or this tree? If you listen hard enough, you can hear every living thing breathing together. You can feel everything growing. We’re all living together, even if most folks don’t act like it. We all have the same roots, and we are all branches of the same tree.”
“Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source. True humility is the only antidote to shame.”

“The greatest illusion of this world is the illusion of separation. Things you think are separate and different are actually one and the same. We are all one people, but we live as if divided.”
