“Dark” is the word to best describe the month of September for me. So instead of fighting this ‘darkness” I decided to go search for some more ‘noir’….and this is what I found:
“The light comes from the dark” Roger Ballen
and while engulfed with my own darkness and that of Mr Ballen’s, I missed the “Super Bood Moon Total Eclipse of 2015” and have to wait until 2033 to see it again, but thank goodness for youtube 😉
and while on the subject of blood (or just a little bit of it)……
I received my first ink (tattoo) this month: (from a place called Indalo Ink in Oudtshoorn, South Africa!
A full lace cuff:
I hope you have a wonderful October!

today was a good day…
winter is in the air, and so we decided to take a walk with the dogs and the kids…
my husband found me this wonderful snake skin which i adore
after that we had some tea and i started to doodle just for fun (no expectations) and if the kids wanted to join in they could and did for a short while….they reminded me in the first place about the simple pleasure of just picking up a pen (and some glue) and start scribbling away.
