Monsters and Growing Up Chronic Illness and Art Monday Motivation

When you learn the monsters are not under the bed or in the closet but locked safely beneath the 5th rib pacing and rattling the bones looking for a weak spot to escape.

So maybe you've noticed things have been a little rough on my side.

There have been family cancer scares (everything's fine but any lab tech people please for the love of SANITY take your time making sure your reports are right!)


and my skeleton has become more decorative than functional,


but in the immortal words of Neil Gaiman, make great art.
