I might be gone a long time
And it’s only that I’m asking
Is there something I can send you to remember me by
To make your time more easy passing?

Oh, how can, how can you ask me again
It only brings me sorrow
The same thing I want from you today
I would want again tomorrow.

I got a letter on a lonesome day
It was from her ship a-sailing
Saying I don’t know when I’ll be comin’ back again
It depends on how I’m feeling.

Well, if you, my love, must think that-a-way
I’m sure your mind is roaming
I’m sure your thoughts are not with me
But with the country to where you’re going.

When I was younger, I went to Paris and visited the Louvre. Surrounded by so many great art from centuries ago was just so overwhelming. 

It made me even more certain that I wanted to be an artist when I’m older.

Here I am now, just turned a year older and living the dream I wished for when I was young and reckless.


I’m sailing away in the morning.Is there something I can send you from across the seafrom the place that I’ll be landing?
No, there’s nothing you can bring me, my own true love.There’s nothing I wish to be owning.Just carry yourself back to me unspoiledfrom across that lonesome ocean.

Multitasking a different painting in progress.

I have inside me the winds, the deserts, the oceans, the stars, and everything created in the universe.

Art & Meow for threadless


I’ll remember someday all the chances we took. We’re so close to something better left unknown. 

I can feel it in my bones.

This is the dead layer.

We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.

- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

"It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting." 

- Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

And I’m running all the time,
can you catch me before I go.

Give your tears to the tide

“We look up at the same stars and see such different things.”

- George R. R. Martin
