Manifestation was the first painting I saw from Michael Ramstead. I love this representation of the colorful, boundlessly imaginative world we inhabit in our peaceful altered states.

I’m absolutely captivated by this Marta Adan piece; the glowing pink palette, the delicate beauty mixed with the raw presence of bone. The alchemical symbol for antimony (which represents the wild, animal spirit within man) graces her forehead. What a way to elevate a color so often associated with childish or hyper-feminized images.
I’ve been skipping a bunch of days on SWS recently due to spending every moment of my days in such crushing full body pain that it’s difficult to move…even breathe. It’s utterly indescribable (this is post is punctuated with centipede monsters because a search for “spirochete monsters” turns up nothing).
This is nothing new. I’ve had pain of this kind without one second of relief for eight years straight. I do my best to push through it, despite being housebound since 2011.
But it has reached unprecedented heights, and there have been massive delays beyond my control and allergies to all of my Lyme Disease treatment options thus far. That’s the worst part…feeling these bugs squeeze the life out of me in the most slow, agonizing way without any major recourse in the immediate future.
I’ll be attempting to orchestrate treatment through my diagnosing physician on Monday via phone, although he is across the country (it takes months to years to get in with a Lyme literate doctor so I still have months to go despite making an appointment immediately upon diagnosis).
In the meantime, forgive me if I miss a day here and there!
I could have sworn I posted about Kmye Chan before, but could not find the post. Perhaps I only posted this single image which spoke to me greatly, as I’ve often hoped these bed/housebound years of mine during illness would be my chrysalis.
