BAD! Kitty This is the best Astrology Site I have ever found!

BAD! Kitty Art horoscope for today...this is the best horoscope site I have EVER seen, check it out for yourself, just hit the header it's a link to find your horoscope too!
Libra Horoscope for week of April 27, 2006
Will the truth set you free? Maybe, but first it will set you on fire, metaphorically speaking. Once you have been completely consumed by the flames and been reborn out of the ashes like the mythical phoenix, then you might be able to figure out how to use the truth to set yourself free--and to set others free as well. As long as you're armed with the knowledge in this horoscope, Libra, the process won't hurt as much as you might imagine. In fact, the predominant sensation may be exultation. Here's some homework to get you started: Write your three top fears on a piece of paper and burn it.
The primary meaning of the word "healing" is "to cure what's diseased or broken." Medical practitioners focus on sick people. Psychotherapists wrestle with their clients' traumas and neuroses. Philanthropists donate their money and social workers contribute their time to helping the underprivileged. I am in awe of them all. The level of one's spiritual enlightenment, I believe, is more accurately measured by helping people in need than by meditation skills, shamanic shapeshifting, supernatural powers, or religious knowledge. But I also believe in a second kind of healing that is largely unrecognized: to supercharge what is already healthy; to lift up what's merely sufficient to a sublime state. Using this definition, describe two acts of healing: one you would enjoy performing on yourself and another you'd like to provide for someone you love. * The preceding oracle comes from my book, PRONOIA Is the Antidote for Paranoia: How the Whole World Is Conspiring to Shower You with Blessings. It's available at Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

Quote for the day
It was meant to be that life would be a challenge. To suffer some anxiety, some depression, some disappointment, even some failure is normal. Teach our members that if they have a good, miserable day once in a while, or several in a row, to stand steady and face them. Things will straighten out. There is great purpose in our struggle in life.

Boyd K. Packer
I have a very busy day and not much time to write to you today.
I have art that needs shipping, and art that needs finishing for shipping, only one client booked so far for much later in the day, so it seems most of my day will be dedicated to my artworks.
I have so many things on my mind this morning too, that working is a blessing.
I am Burning over here...The roof is on fire
and after a year of not showing and amassing a huge collection of my works...I am again after a couple of small showings...Almost sold out.
Argggh! It's great, I LOVE it...But it also requires the effort of keeping the ball rolling, and today I am determined to push my own inner don't wanna's to the back and push forward through my
fog and make things happen, complete what I have started, and just
Continue to
require the absolute best of myself
(whatever that is)
every single
So...I am off to be great.
What are you pushing through today to attain that
higher state of being for yourself.
Yep somedays it's just work to get there...How do you do it?
I do it by keeping my promise to write everyday...Even when I have nothing to say.
I keep it by making sure that art people have asked for is as near perfect as I can make it (I never go for perfection in the work but in the presentation...Form is everything)
and do all the things that are required of me today with as much grace,
truth and
dignity as I can
Raw & Radiant
Yours in the interactive Moment,

Quote for the day
A tragedy is the imitation of an action that is serious
and also, as having magnitude,
complete in itself . . . With incidents arousing
pity and fear, wherewith to
accomplish its catharsis of such emotions.
Tragedy, we wake up with our personal tragedy's everyday.
We battle ourselves to make it better, or we succumb to the pressure of those who are surrounding us.
My oldest left home way too soon.
The Mother Part of me, wants to go find him, drag his narrow ass home, feed him, love him, fix him.
The mature part of myself knows that he
wants this
He wants to be a victim.
He wants to control his world by being
a tragedy of a 16 year old boy.
His skills at emotional manipulation and control
are exceptional, really...You have to give the kid his kudos...
he's determined, hard headed, willful, and
a complete idiot right now.
I have to learn how to relax into this stress.
Relax into the knowing that this is a stage that he passing through,
that I have done a good job at raising him,
even if this is his way of breaking free of that
environmental conditioning.
I am living day to day with my grief, my sorrow,
my lonely for only him, my own needs to know I have not lost him forever.
I can only control myself, my actions not reactions to
circumstances that I have no participation or control
I am Free of my own inner judgment about this.
I want lots of things for him,
I want love that is whole and healthy for me.
I want him whole.
I miss him.
I love him.
I want him back in my life, the hole in my chest is huge with his being Gone..
Until that reality can manifest, I must continue on.
I Must continue.
I can't do anything else, I have no choice but to continue to work,
be accountable,
be impassioned,
be true to me,
and continue to love healthy and strong.
Living with reality today, and translating that into constructive
actions that bring my circle of love
round again.
Yours in the moment today,
and doing something with it.
What are you working on this Monday Morning?

Quote for the weekend
It is unethical not to know.
It is unethical not to think.
It is unethical not to love.
It is unethical not to live an impassioned life.
It is unethical not to attain greatness.
It is unethical to succumb to the fear of envy
and the conspiracy of mediocrity.
It is unethical not to self-bestow genius.
It is unethical not to be the first monkey.
Yasuhiko Genku Kimura
The First Monkey...Human evolution...
My kids came home from their schools "Earth Day"
celebration at school yesterday. Loaded down with happy paper
hats, colored with non-toxic crayons, markers and glues.
Paper bags, decorated and full of candy.
And completely terrified.
We had three hours of frank conversation about what the world will look like in thirty years.
How it's going to be OK, they didn't mean to scare you, they were trying to teach you..My youngest
Looks up at me and says, "well, it sure scared me when they said the world would be boiling in thirty years and that my kids were going to die."
7 years old. And worrying about how going to the grocery store is going to kill his kids in the future.
Way to go American terroristst!
I mean if we start scaring the be-Jesus out them at a young age,
teach them to fold their hands across their little hearts and pledge under
GOD (whose?)
to serve and love this country,
where it's perfectly fine for the people who are here to put on a fun
event for little kids to help them better LOVE
their earth, Turns into a slide show presentation of the natural disaster our
planet actually is.
Let's not inspire,
Let's Terrorize.
Is this the New American Way?
I'll be the first Monkey to stand up and say
it's not right. It's down right not ethical....
to use MY TAX PAID for
School To Scare My Kids!
Nope, the Head monkeys's no child left behind and faith based plans are working great here in my hometown.
All Hile the head Monkey.
Who's building a PR campain to invade Iran, and South Americas For more OIL
to continue killing the planet,
so that the eco-terrorists will have continued job security
in the elementary school lecture circuit...
paid for
by my tax dollars.
Yeah, well fuck you.
I'll be the first Monkey.
This is Unethical...
not to mention stupid.
Stupid Shit like this makes me want to be nothing but base human.
And an Ass kicking, white trash southern, fuck you personality comes over me that is almost irresistible at times.
So, please excuse my Saturday rant...but I had to get it out so my day can be wonderful
in the rare and clear
And Freaking even rareer SUN of an OREGON spring
air, water and greenery
which is part of the beautiful
sacred earth I am a good steward of, on/with.

"The longer I live and the more experience I have of the world, the more I am convinced that, after all, the one thing that is most worth living for - and dying for, if need be - is the opportunity of making someone else more happy and more useful. "

my heart with
I commune with my truth with my

asking her to stay for tea.
As we sit and talk in
and the shapes of my
inner world...
she is my observer
riding on my shoulder
giving strength where before there was
I am the bird that
sits in the tree outside
your window
and never stops singing at all.
I am the proof.
I am a symbol of hope.
I am just me.
See Me.

BAD! Kitty Random Thursday Thought.....

What is a friend? How do you define friendship, and what do you do with it? Proof is in the pudding right?
I found this and loved it…so I thought I would share.

Here goes:
People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. When you know which one it is, you will know what to do for that person.
When someone is in your life for a REASON, it is usually to meet a need you have expressed. They have come to assist you through difficulty, to provide you with guidance and support, to aid you physically, emotionally or spiritually They may seem like a godsend and they are. They are there for the reason you need them to be.
Then, without any wrong doing on your part or at an inconvenient time, this person will say or do something to bring the relationship to an end. Sometimes they die. Sometimes they walk away. What we must realize is that our need has been met, our desire fulfilled, their work is done. The prayer you sent up has been answered and now it is time to move on.
Some people come into your life for a SEASON, because your turn has come to share, grow or learn. They bring you an experience of peace or make you laugh. They may teach you something you have never done. They usually give you an unbelievable amount of joy. Believe it, it is real. But only for a season!
LIFETIME relationships teach you lifetime lessons, things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant!
Thank you for being a part of My Life, whether you were a reason, a season or a lifetime.
Much Love to the New and the Old,

Quote of the day
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
Eleanor Roosevelt
What does courage mean to me today?
Being here, doing this, writing these words for you to see, being transparent about my life, and sticking to my guns about the truth of me.
That's my definition of courage for Heather.
Not knowing what will happen, and doing it anyway.
Facing fear.
Knowing my Truths.
Knowing that I define myself by my actions,
my intent,
my passion.
I am.
See Me.
See me,
I am not average.
You are not average.
Let's take over the average world,
Shall we?
Ok, I've got a nice lunch packed, and we will make a day of it.
World take over...
Being the Change starts here
with me.
See me.
I am not average,
and I am full of
courage, fear & Passion.
I use them as fuel today, not weight.
How do you use your fear to propel you?
What's makes you feel courage?
This is mine.
See me

Quote for the day
Question: Why are we Masters of our Fate, the captains of our souls? Because we have the power to control our thoughts, our attitudes. That is why many people live in the withering negative world. That is why many people live in the Positive Faith world. And you don't have to be a poet or a philosopher to know which is best.

It has won 3 awards, and been published in 12 magazines, ezines and art/health periodicals in the past year.

The New OneAn essay by HMBTcopyright 2005
I was seven, when I found out that people get sick, people get cancer, and people can die.
We had just come back from my favorite aunt’s home, where she and I had happily spent the day, making paper clip jewelry, and her famous oatmeal cookies.
All the grown-ups were weird, acting strange and stilted.
I just thought they were being grown-ups…which when I was seven was another word for “crazy” anyway.
We went home, life went on.
Two weeks later, my grandfather sat me down and told me that Aunt Nell had passed away, she had been sick, with cancer for a long time, and that she had lost the battle, gone with God and moved to heaven.
At the funeral, I sat in the pew, sandwiched between my father and grandmother, almost passing out from the White Shoulders my grandmother had bathed in, and my father’s aftershave.
My skirt was new and itchy, and I was hot, and really mad at everyone for not noticing my perfect set of matching jewels, made of paper clips and shelf paper… made by my favorite aunt and myself, in the sun, on the back porch, laughing cookie crumbs at each other.
I had insisted on wearing them, even though they didn’t match my new dress.
She looked beautiful and just like she was asleep, I left my bracelet on her pillow, so she would have something pretty to wear in Heaven.
I’ve still got my necklace and matching ear rings Aunt Nell, I’ll make sure to bring them with me when I come to see you.
I was 20 years old when I found out that people get sick, people get cancer, I had cancer, and I might die.
The doctor sat across from me and solemnly delivered the bad news, six months maybe a little longer; they didn’t know how to stop it.
My son had been born less than a year before, I was an athlete, I took care of myself, I was alone in the world, a single mother, and no family left.
This couldn’t be happening to me, I was not going to die, that I knew when I left the office.
I wasn’t going to die, and that was that.
I’ve been told I am a little stubborn.
He told me to put my life in order, he told me to spend time with my son, and to think about making arrangements for him.
He told me to go home and enjoy what time I had left.
I was 26 years old when I learned that people get sick, people get cancer, I had cancer, and people don’t always die.
I am now 36 years old. I did not go home and give up.
I have three children, after they said it was impossible.
I have no cancer.
I have spent many years recovering, and learning; this world is a magical place, full of magical people.
I am one of them; you are too.
Live each day as if it will end in the next ten seconds. (~Ray Bradbury)
Live each moment, to it’s fullest.We all have a terminal disease; it’s called birth.
The future is no place to put your better days. (~Dave Matthews)
I am still here, and so are you.
Let’s do something about it, with it.
This painting is about my recovery, the friends and family
I have watched make the transition from this life to the next realm, and my personal declaration to the universe
that I am still here,
and that matters to me,
and the people who love me.
I will go when it’s my time,
but not now…until then I am “The New One”.

I will tell you all the story behind this new series...but for now I just wanted to share! Check my site later for better pictures and pricing.
Here's the quote that inspired the work:
"Reorganize To Create the Illusion of Progress.
We trained hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into teams, we would be reorganized.
I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it can be for creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency, and demoralization."

More about this new one too...Later on my site, so check there on the front page for info about purchase, or just email me.
Here is the quote that Inspired the work:
"Great steps in human progress are made by things that don't work the way philosophy thought they should. If things always worked the way they should, you could write the history of the world from now on. But they don't, and it is those deviations from the normal that make human progress. "

Quote for the day
"Nothing more enhances authority than silence. It is the crowning virtue of the strong, the refuge of the weak, the modesty of the proud, the pride of the humble, the prudence of the wise, and the sense of fools. To speak is to . . . Dissipate one's strength; whereas what action demands is concentration. Silence is a necessary preliminary to the ordering of one's thoughts."

Charles de Gaulle
Sometimes the silence can be thunder

searches for a grip

Sometimes I want to

Sometimes I want to

Quote for the Day
There is a fundamental law that the tissue of the human body will waste away through idleness and disuse. Conversely, muscles and vessel that are stressed grow and increase in capacity. This same basic law also applies to spiritual and intellectual growth and can be achieved only by continual nourishment and effort in day-to-day living.
I am working all day on a new art "show".
Commitment is hard, sticking with it after a long week of hard work, and getting it all done...It's not easy, but I do
about my current work...And the big "show" for private guests
of a local big wig...Fingers crossed, and relaxing...
I prepare for the event with mixed feelings.
It's a small but important event, and I am looking forward to being in front of people and talking about my work again, after a year off from shows, gallery openings, and events in general.
Now I have a lot of work to share and explore.
It's fun, and scary and
FUN...Because it's my proof in the pudding.
I'll never stop.
There will be no end to my life's work.
I am SO programmed for LIVING!

In life, the first thing you must do is decide what you really want. Weigh the costs and the results. Are the results worthy of the costs? Then make up your mind completely and go after your goal with all your might.

Alfred Montapert
Submerged in concentration.
Work is joy.
I am effortlessly relaxing and coiled for action.
The flow is upon me and my work

I am concentrating on thinking, what it brings me, what questions asked, and what is answered.
Reality is just a set of variable circumstances,

Wisdom comes from not knowing, and doing anyway.
Good Judgment comes from bad judgment.
Editing is the key to a happy life. I started really reading my rough draft of my book last night. Looking over the words, and the editors red slashes and commentary, I remember how painful the first chapters were to write, how I cried and felt. Looking at the words today, I realized the power of the writing, the release of my secrets, my dust bin, what's behind door number three Folks?!

Quote of the day
Nothing average ever stood as a monument to progress. When progress is looking for a partner it doesn't turn to those who believe they are only average. It turns instead to those who are forever searching and striving to become the best they possibly can. If we seek the average level we cannot hope to achieve a high level of success. Our only hope is to avoid being a failure.

Quote for the day
There is rarely a creative man who does not have to pay a high price for the divine spark of his great gifts . . . The human element is frequently bled for the benefit of the creative element.

Carl Jung
Thinking, Bleeding, Being.
I am in a constant state of those states of awareness.
I am thinking about thinking.
What questions my mind asks the divine,
the God of all that loves all and shuns none in my mind.
I am understanding that simply being alive and present in the moment
is simply not enough.
You have to work, all the time at excellence.
I will never and don't want perfection.
I want my best.
I want the best I can give, do, create, what am I really capable of.
I realize that being the change requires the constant effort
to be and not be at the same time.
To accept circumstances, reality
and chose to change it at the same time.
To alter the perception of my higher self
the one that inhabits this
body, this human form I have taken
I am the change because I chose to participate in all of the endless work and effortless
casualness of this reality.
My programming is geared towards pleasing myself, yes...
in a way that benefits not just me though.
My mission statement in this life includes the statement....
"I will willingingly be open to learning the lessons and information I need to best of best service to all of mankind."
sound like a lofty hippie goal to you?
Well, the old me when I wrote that line, years ago now has become the part of my mission that is
in this reality to
pay attention,
take action
I am the duality of being and still
and moving at light speed
at the same time.
Quantum Machinery, programmed for the ultimate experience
Living Free.
Free of past, present and future.
In the Now
and actively participating in it.
I think we have enough in the NOW time too,
(refers to the philosophy on the subject: Ken Wilbur)
I am about doing something with the now.
OCD about doing something, interaction,
action, choices,
am I striving with every action for my highest self?
I ask that it all come from that place, how can I
participate in the
I don't meditate, so much as I write,
I create,
I share that here and in my works.
I am living the duality, thinking about that,
and talking with my soul today...
listening to what
I have to say, what I feel is right,
delegating tasks, to the self
to the ego
to the divine.
I am living and relaxing into that at the same time...
freaky huh?
It's cool, and feels good
power is in my self control
virtue is the proof in the pudding of my actions
choices are sets of circumstances that are really opportunity
in disguise.
I am living wide open,
and yes it's scary as shit.
The air up here is good,
my view clear,
and I have a plan.
I am working, and relaxing with the work...
duality requires participation and a
constant amount of pressure/no pressure.
Have a great day,
think about thinking and what questions does your
mind bring to you?
Are they questions that can bring positive answers?
I am concentrating on what I am asking for, and how.
Form is everything.
Yours, in the moment.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio & Sybil Ann Tells All

Quote for the day

If you persist in trying to attain what is never attained (It is Tao's gift), if you persist in making effort to obtain what effort cannot get, if you persist in reasoning about what cannot be understood, you will be destroyed by the very thing you seek. To know when to stop, to know when you can get no further by your own action, this is the right beginning!

Chuang Tzu


Beginning the new week, Monday.

Action and plans that were made while I forced to be quiet while dealing with the Flu from Hell that took me out for more than a week flat. I worked on art and wrote down ideas about what I am doing, where am I going, what is my mission statement today, as is. What are my goals, now...short term and long? What the heck do I really expect from this life? I also had time to go through the back storage room of the studio, with my manager and a fresh set of eyes.

They made me sit and watch them bring out to me the contents of the room. The cumulative whole of an entire years worth of work, that no one has ever seen. Because I took a years off from the shows, galleries, agents, Mega marketing in general of my work went down to a static level, while I spent a year...Just Working.

The experience of sitting there and watching art come out that I had forgotten I had even done, was like Christmas and having a fresh band-aid ripped off real fast when you are not looking.

I felt proud each time I heard from the back room (the place is small) OOhhhs, and wows look at this one, and they would bring it out and my fever crazed brain would be all excited and trying to recapture the moments of each creation.

Looking back over the work, seeing the growth I have made by becoming incredibably focused on what I really want in this life.

My wants and need list turned out to be pretty damn short over all.

I just want to be happy.

That looks and feels like the words I write everyday in this blog, the tears spilt, the lessons learned, the pain, the joy, the absolute scared crapless about not knowing anything, and doing it anyway.

My life is my ultimate work of art.

I am the ultimate canvas, and I will work on my masterpiece until I stand in the clearing at the end of the path.

I will never be done growing, learning, changing.

I am grateful for the time to think, melt down, re-group even if it took the freaking Flu to make me stop and look, no... not look, but SEE

the growth, the change, the joy, the pain.

It is MINE,

world this is me.

Raw & radiant,

bring shades, I am still on my

way, this is my mark, this is my proof of change, this is my life, this is a real human, working, feeling, breathing, heart beating, pain having, just as ordinary freaking human as all of you reading this. I am HERE. I am ReaL, I am passionate about LIVING.

All of it, bring it Universe. I am living arms wide open.

I have the courage to face it, myself & the truths of my life, and the conviction of faith to carry it all out.

Bring it Universe, bring my chaos, my change, my plans set into action, my goals realized, my failures, my rejections, my glory in finding the important connections.

Let each of my heartbeats today count, for the actions I take bring me what I want, what I need and simply put all I need is to work, love and continue to grow, learn, share that experience.

For I am The Change.

I am The Chaos.

I am that hope, the bird that sits in the tree of the secret inner garden, and never stops singing at all.

Be well today.

Yours in every action packed moment,

Heather/Sybil Ann
