I wake up and I think of you.
I think of Honey.
I think of a Big Room filled with Honey.
I think of a Museum filled with Honey.
I am thankful to you.
I think of my Aunt Bess,
Always taping a lucky penny
To the Birthday Cards she sends me.
The penny has to be new so it looks like gold,
Though it’s only copper.
I think of you as I hold my lucky penny
And I am rich.
You make all my paintings for me.
Day dreaming and drifting off
I think of you
And my paintings magically appear
Before my eyes
Made up by themselves.
I used to be in the restaurant business
With my Aunt Bess
Until you took me with you
To a room filled with music.

From your lighthouse,
You shine a light for me in the dark.
You give me a reflection of myself
That comes from far off.
My voice comes back to me,
Mirrored in blue light,
Big and strong,
Filtered and pure.
I explore as much as I want
And then come back to you
For peace.

My friend and I may be psychological twins in the sense of being split archetypes, the sun and moon. I have a compulsive warmness. He has a compulsive coldness. I live in the city. He lives in the country. He is tall. I’m short. He is a man. I am a woman. He is attached to the earth. I float in the clouds. He doesn’t talk about death. That’s all I talk about. He likes games and distractions. I like contemplation and psychology. I wallow. He doesn’t refer to personal suffering. I live in a dangerous neighborhood. He won’t go anywhere he has to lock his car. I am messy. He is neat as a pin. I’m disorganized. He is organized. I am intuitive. He is analytical. He hates me. I love him.[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Buster and Ann” tab_id=”1435716466191-5-8″][vc_single_image image=”363″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Carriage House” tab_id=”1435716467917-6-4″][vc_single_image image=”287″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Small Stairs” tab_id=”1435716469478-7-7″][vc_single_image image=”288″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Stairs with Tulips” tab_id=”1435716470435-8-5″][vc_single_image image=”364″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Stairs with Jonathan” tab_id=”1435716471487-9-2″][vc_single_image image=”366″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Stairs in Pink” tab_id=”1435716472692-10-8″][vc_single_image image=”290″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][vc_tab title=”Stairs with Jonathan and Moon” tab_id=”1435716474008-11-2″][vc_single_image image=”289″ style=”vc_box_shadow_3d” border_color=”grey” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” rounded_image=”” img_size=”full”][vc_column_text]oil on linen[/vc_column_text][/vc_tab][/vc_tour][/vc_column][/vc_row]
