i was a wizard who had a spell-working wand in last night’s grim dream
i stepped on a toad and waved my magic baton – it came back to life
This is based on one of the dreams I had on July 23. In the dream, I was a wizard with a magic wand. I carried the wand on my back. I accidentally stepped on a toad and killed it. When I felt it, I lifted up my shoe to see the dead toad stuck to the bottom of it. I felt terrible and very saddened and sickened by what had happened. I pulled out my magic wand and moved it in circles above the toad while repeating, “Come back to life!” over and over again. The toad returned to life once more. I felt glad.
I've been making art since I was a child in the 1980s. I started with traditional media. Then, I began to make digital art on the family's Apple IIe computer in the early 80s. Between 1995 and 1996, when I was a senior in high school, I was the art club president.
In 2005, I started to make fractals. In 2021, I began making other digital art forms as an adult.
I write music and improvise every now and then. I've been doing this since I first played a guitar and piano when I was a child. I also like to make loops and beats.
I wrote a few haiku and senryu poems when I was younger. Unfortunately, I didn't save them. On May 30, 2022, I started to write them frequently and have been saving them in multiple places. I've also written some haibun and some flash memoirs. I hope to learn more about writing poetry and flash and microfiction as time passes. My goal with this website is to publish my art, fractals, poetry, music, and writing. I will also share other images, poetry, or writings that are in the public domain.
My writings, poetry, fractals, music, and art are copyrighted by me and may not be used in any way without my written permission.
