This detail is Diaphany's mugshot, as I like to call a close-up from a larger drawing...the title is actually, Diaphany and Orion.

What do you think--is she more cosmic or comic?

Woman Nursing a Baby with a Message

"12 Cancer": Life gains significance to the extent that each person embraces the totality of his kind in his own makeup, or seeks to embody universal values in his
everyday consciousness.


pos: a gift for bringing the more Godlike resources or superior powers of self to a point of real community service;

neg/shadow-unconscious side: completely unreasonable demands for recognition.

This degree's Symbol speaks of personal talents and skills and of greater opportunities to use them. Thanks to: The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Dr. Marc Edmund Jones...with little effort you can read my review of it on Amazon. Or just get one if you don't have one...tres simple.

This Word Picture reminds me of orphans though...can't help it.

Gazer Future Past

This is a detail from my drawing which is part of the June issue of LibraMoon's Art and Poetry e-zine, Emerging Visions so go there to see the full drawing--IF you're 17 and over har har.

And if you haven't seen more disturbing images than this by the time you're 17, you're either doing something right OR you're still a happy passenger on the turnip truck of life. Next stop: Emerging Visions! Perhaps you can manage to fall off...

And do check out my friend Jfay's wonderful Candles created fresh for You at Studio 3B where you'll find Candles with Attitude.

Jfay created a Candle for me called 'Poseidon's Candle' which is absolutely the hands-down best candle I've ever purchased in a lifetime of candle-purchasing!

If you have concerns about this mysterious situation or about Mr.A.Cat's role in the goings-on, please email Jude! forthwith.

The Mysterious A.Cat

Hope you've got a moment to see what this limerick situation is about at Lim's Limericks by A.Cat because I'm not sure if this should be broadcast considering how political cats have turned out to be--and you could've knocked me over with a feather when I found this out.

I know we live in political times but bird's-eye accounts are often squeamishly squelched by the powers-that-be. Not so here. His pen name may be hiding something deeper, of course, but I don't want to intrude on his privacy...there's enough of that in the land near and far, so a pen name is probably a noble ruse in Mr.A.Cat's case.

Guess if you travel in such high and mighty circles, the time comes when all must be revealed...polls or no, mandates be d---well, check it out unless you're under the ripe old age of 17. If so, I'd prefer that you censor yourself until at least next year...and if you're one to wear your political indoctrinations on your sleeve, it would be more prudent for you to simply sit out this dance!

In fact, wait for a salsa. There's sure to be a salsa. And limericks can be so annoying even without the catitude.

Secret Moon Art: 7.7.06

Secret Moon Art debuts tonight...and the target date for the Gallery going LIVE! is the evening of 07.10.06 - in July, a few hours before Full Moon, the culmination phase.

RE-UPDATE Friday 7.14.06: Secret Moon Art now LIVE!!! Ignore paragraph below...

*MONDAY UPDATE: UNBELIEVABLE!! No combo of 'Secret Moon' titles will satisfy so that I can set up the Secret Moon Art blog-art gallery, so I'll need to reconnoiter, art lover. Now back to my post of July 8th with all my happy plans for SECRET MOON ART. Later I'll post: Purple its early phase. And I did say, if all goes well.

Sorry I won't be putting 'Secret Moon Art' online tonight. Am I over my blog limit or somethin'?

7.8.06 cont'd:

You'll be noticing that Moon phases are featured in most of these images. Magic, night, cosmic, the infrequent yet delicate fairy, botanically-drawn plants, flowers, a few spider webs...these various scenes are being put underneath my original imprint of Unscene World.

Secret Moon Art is a Series inside the enigma that is Unscene World...a mere figment of the whole is your Secret Moon. Drawings shall begin in Black-White: Rexel Derwent Watercolours and Prismacolor Oils. Color will be added at some stage--or will it?

And each Series will consist of 3, 5, or 7 panels and will give you a peek at the developing drawing.

Whether you like it or not, you'll be horrified by my color choices, perhaps bemused by my unencumbrature with the mental realm, and occasionally you may even be gratified by my trust in you to give me a Shout-Out if you have any comments or questions.

But WHY the Moon?

Our astrological Moons in our natal charts tell us much about our emotional lives, our dreams, our heredities--remembering the fact that we are each the "flowering of our generations" with talents, abilities...and unconscious behavior patterns we need to jettison in order to progress.

The 'urge to merge' is nestled within the Moon's realm, as is the Unconscious, and our habits from the past which are catching up with us...for they always do!

So...there's more to come in this logo's progress although it is near completion, as you plainly see. You may Bookmark Secret Moon Art to stay up with illustrations of the progressing and hidden Moon and I'd love for you to share and use a favored image--so remember: Attribution is the least you can do for all my hours--nay, years--of work! See Licensing Agreement at top of page.

The rendering you see here is v1 of #1 (logowise) and as such will be completed and published soon as Secret Moon logo #1v2.

Hope you'll mosey back to view finished drawings in the Secret Moon Art Series and get a jump on the next Series, #1 of which is Now Published at SO'W with the second version--the more completed drawing due online in a few days.

Wishing Harmony to All, and an end to psychopaths ruling the world,
