Mr Coconut Head

As I drove the car, my 6 yr old daughter sat in the back seat, talking constantly.... I am guilty of occasionally zoning out, while dishing out automatic responses to her questions.  On this particular day I heard her say..."Mum... what if we were driving in our car & we looked over and saw a man with a coconut for a head. And he was driving a coconut car. But don't worry, its just a story."  

Her zany, little story triggered the creative juices & I asked her to repeat what she said... "Ummm,... There was a guy back there with a coconut head!"   I laughed. She laughed. She had a look of pride and satisfaction on her face...her little story had made us all laugh. 

I couldn't get the image of it out of my head all day...
"There was a guy with a coconut head"
"There was a guy with a coconut head"
There was nothing else for me to do but to create a tshirt design of Mr Coconut Head.
He still makes me smile.

I love you Meekie-Moo

Bearded Lady is in Town

I have a regular visitor...
...overwhelming me
...messing with my mind
...turning my emotions upside down
...forcing me on an old rickety rollercoaster where every corner feels like it will be my last.
It is horrible & there are so many tears. But I know the visit will come to an end.
I know I won't always feel like a freak who has escaped from the circus.

I know that I will be myself soon.
