IF ... Atmosphere

Our lives may be influenced by our environment, but it's the gaseous mass of thoughts and ideas constantly streaming in our heads that really shapes our reality. When you consider the inner world of the artist, it can be a downright busy place. Watch out for those shooting stars!

IF ... Caged

©2010 Mardi Speth All Rights Reserved

Being caged is a state of mind with a lot of emotional fallout. It happens when the world closes in with it's incessant responsibilities and impending deadlines, and is further compounded by the unexpected event (which, of course, will happen with the worst possible timing). How can the psyche escape these dastardly, invisible forces? A good cry and a glass of wine does an adequate job in taking the edge off. But do check with your doctor before beginning any treatment prescribed by this creative professional.
