2013 or the Year of Changing Identity, Hair and Direction

All right, so that statement might be a bit of an overstatement, but it is safe to say that it was a year of huge changes and shifts! This was an incredibly difficult year for me, but like any year in anybody’s life it has it’s ups and downs. And it is usually only through difficulty and pain that humans manage to grow and evolve. This year offered me many of those opportunities. But, I am grateful to be here and looking forward to new opportunities

In March my hubs and I got to see and meet the amazing Peter Murphy, as he toured in celebration of 35 years of Bauhaus. A band I’ve been listening to for 25 years.

I love this photo, it looks like he’s about to show us how his goth hand is way strong. In actuality, he was telling us about his wife. It was a sweet moment, and as you can tell by the smile as big as the moon, I was ridiculously excited…

Had work in art show and sold several skulls!

I was so inspired by my skulls I re-worked my Dia de Los Muertos mannequin.

Hubs and I went to Chicago and saw the Cure! Another band I’ve listened to for more than 25 years! In all that time, I somehow never managed to see them, so it was a thrill to finally have the experience. They were amazing!!

We had an awesome time in Chicago, as always.

    And finally, due to both unforeseen events and uncontrollable circumstances, the publication of both books one and two of The Dreaming Trilogy have been postponed until sometime next year, but I promise they are coming!

As always, thanks for reading!
