A weird collage I did in my journal led me to the Pie Man.
judy’s journal collage
The pie man delivers
in the dark of night
To your brain he goes straight
when it’s quiet and late
not to give you a fright
He’s a curious sight
Wearing pie on his head,
very berry red
a flaky vest on his chest
he‘s a living taste test
His eyes are wacky
lips are smacky
from too much snacky
of tasty pie
a slightly weird guy
Pie Man, After his midnight snack
But you’ll think him quite swell
because he’ll never tell
how much you eat
in your dreamy treat
Strawberry, apple or cherry pie
give them all a try
Pecan if you like a crunchy start
Key lime or lemon for sweet ‘n tart
So when you go to bed
No need for dread
chocolate, banana, coconut cream
each taste a luscious dreamy dream
Eat all you crave in your reveries
Pie man guarantees
Scratch one more cure . . . for now.
I started an anti-viral medication that has been successful in treating some people with Chronic Fatigue. There is a long-held theory that virus are responsible for fibromyalgia/CFS and since I have tested positive for a viral-reactivation it seemed worth a prescription.
After taking the meds for over a month and coping with a bit of 24-hour nausea and headaches, last night I was wakened by really severe stomach pain which radiated to my back . The cure was worse than the malady.
Before the pain became full-blown I was playing around with some oil paint and roughed-in this face. Now looking at my preliminary sketch it’s a window into how I’ve been feeling. I think I’ll not “finish” the painting and leave it be . . . for now.
I stopped the medication this morning. Like my painting, I’m not going to try to “finish off” the virus either . . . for now.
