Hi, I haven't properly introduced myself. Maybe I should do that here since I'm a creative soul. I am in the throes of a difficult situation. My mother has passed away, along with 3 brothers and my father died 21 years ago. My sister-in-law just passed away last week.
My difficult situation is this: I am executor of my mom's estate. My surviving brother and sister are both mentally ill. I am being very much tested as they run amok. There's a simple answer, the estate gets distributed by the book, how my mom had it written. Period. The difficulty comes in juggling these toxic personalities.
I have been studying Buddhism for about 10 years. I am very half-a$$ed about it. I confess, I am a half-a$$ed Buddhist.
I am getting a lot of pleasure reading some of the joking around. I get it!!
I feel some peace reading some of the more serious, contemplative stuff.
Thank you everyone for that.
Here's a sample of my art:
and this was an auction piece - it sold!!
