The Aztec Calendar Stone
SOMETHING YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ME!
SOMETHING I’M PROUD OF
God Gave Me a Gift
The Talent to Create Things of Beauty.
I do Needlepoint. It’s not cross stitch, embroidery, crewel or any other established way of doing needlepoint. There is no print or pattern that I work to and no rules to obey. I will have a very rough outline on paper of what I think my idea should wind up as but only as an initial idea. I just grab a needle, thread, and my choice of fabric to work on and I begin to sew freehand using the thread like a colored pencil drawing line after line after line of colors, threads, stitches and patterns as they emerge from my fingers and finally after possibly a year and a hundred thousand stitches later I get to see my creation and I amaze myself with what I have been able to produce.
I can no longer do my art because of finger and visual problems so I decided that since it has never been seen before, to put it on display and share it with the people who now make my life worth while: All of you.
The First Piece in this exhibit is a 30” diameter Wall Hanging.
Made of burlap and Embroidery Cotton it shows how I think
A massive stone Sculpture should have been painted.

Smee. The Smee.Goan.Guy!
I have begun to believe my mind is full of tiny little topics that act like pimples.No one can predict the order they start to fester in, or when they’ll get ripe and burst. I’ve given up being a “Good” guy. I’ve started to speak my mind and some people don’t like me. I’m disgusted with the way the world has turned into a potential disaster waiting to happen and this is where I vent. I’ve got 70 years of getting pissed off to vent and I’ve come to the conclusion that my fellow men are too damned stupid to save the world. There are just too many screw-ups going on at the same time. I’m sick of it all but here we are in the middle of the Stew Pot and this is going to be my commentary regarding the days stupidities and lies as our leader spouts them.
This blog is a probably futile attempt to save Personal Growth but what the hell I’ve got nothing else to do and Harper the asshole just doesn’t please me.
What a poor fucking Prime Minister we got this time. He makes Chrétien and Mulroney look like saints.
