Thank the Universe it's Friday!

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the day
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-- Robert Frost
Living with purpose and passion is based upon decision. You may choose to live day after day, one after another, in a completely ordinary existence. OR you can choose to greet each day with a possibility mindset. A purposeful mindset. A Passionate mindset. Begin each day with these questions and be amazed.
1. Why is it important for me to engage myself in my work passionately and purposefully each day?
2. How will I choose to allow my attitude effect how I address stressful situations at work today? How can I be more affective and proactive in regards to stress and attitude?
3. When am I most likely too react with the most passion and purpose today? Meeting with clients? Working on my computer? Following up on a lead? Take note of what makes your passion come alive, so you can use it to better your work performance.
4. Where within the organization am I best able to express my passion and purpose? Is it working with my peers? My supervisors? Clients? Interdepartmentally? Where physically do I perform the most purposefully?
5. With whom do I need to spend time in order to maintain balance as I pursue my passion and purpose? Within the organization, who best supports me?
6. What choices will I make today that align my purpose and passion with the tasks at hand at work?
7. Who am I called to be today as an expression of my passion for living?
By Julie Jordan Scott
Have a great Friday everyone,
Inspire yourself, and share it with
someone you care about. See where that
road takes you.
Raw & Radiant,
btw...the BAD! Kitty Art Sale is still

Pondering the real questions

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the day
"We do not err because truth is difficult to see.
It is visible at a glance.
We err because this is more comfortable. "
When you think a new thought, entertain a new dream,
or mentally choose a new goal, your thoughts "leave" you and go out, in every direction, to the farthest corners of the planet - on a mission.
They carry a life force all their own, like ripples created when a pebble is tossed into a pond,
and their sole object is to reappear back into your life
as things and experiences.
You can't change this... but, YOU CAN use it.
There are two days in every week about which we should not worry, two days which should be kept free from fear and apprehension.
One of these days is Yesterday with all its mistakes and cares,its faults and blunders, its aches and pains.
Yesterday has passed forever beyond our control.
All the money in the world cannot bring back Yesterday.
We cannot undo a single act we performed; we cannot erase a single word we said.
Yesterday is gone forever.
The other day we should not worry about is Tomorrow with all its possible adversities, its burdens,its large promise and its poor performance; Tomorrow is also beyond our immediate control.
Tomorrow's sun will rise, either in splendor or behind a mask of clouds,
but it will rise.
Until it does, we have no stake in Tomorrow,for it is yet to be born.
This leaves only one day, Today.
Any person can fight the battle of just one day.
It is when you and I add the burdens of those two awful eternities Yesterday and Tomorrow that we break down.
It is not the experience of Today that drives a person mad, it is the remorse or bitterness of something which happened Yesterday and the dread of what Tomorrow may bring.
Let us, therefore, Live but one day at a time.
May the world be yours,

It's my Birthday and I want to show you my Dream!

BAD! Kitty is dreaming of home.
Well it's my birthday, and I am getting ready to blow out my birthday candles.
I thought I would share my wish with you all.
The picture above is a favorite of mine,
it's a picture of the town that I most want to live in... in all of the world.
Where is this magical place, that can call a big city BAD! Kitty to it, you ask?
It's a little place called Danville, KY.
I will be calling it home, someday soon.
So, as I close my 37 year old eyes, and smile at my beautiful family
I will be wishing and saying a prayer
to my new forever hometown
Danville KY.
I will be thinking of the soft hills, the kind people
and the wonderful life I will create there.
It can not come fast enough for me!
We all have to have dreams, goals, desires in this life to make them come true.
This is one of mine.
May the world be yours today,

Tuesdays thoughts and convictions

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the day
"The universe is change;
our life is what our thoughts make it."
So, today is the day before my birthday. I will be 37 years old tomorrow.
I have come to some conclusions about my current
set of circumstances.
I will not "heal" anymore from the crimes of careless
people and their actions any longer.
I will not waste another day on those who have caused
me pain, been cruel, abandoned my love and friendship,
or taken me for granted. I don't deserve to be carved up into little bits,
any longer, because I choose not to be.
This is my life, no one Else's and I am in charge
of where it goes, and where it will end up.
I will take what I have learned from them (the carvers of the world),
and use that knowledge as fuel,
instead of weight and continue to grow.
I have been a rut of unhappy feelings for about three months.
I fight it everyday, I stand up to myself and ask for more, every single day.
I am no coward.
To regain momentum in my life, I have to
forget about what others think, feel and do.
I have to be more concerned about my own actions in this life,
my rights, my wrongs, my life is my own.
I know all this stuff, logically...but like all humans
I get sidetracked every once in awhile.
I want to have a large group of friends,
I want to have a happy family (I do have that)
I would really love to have extended family,
but they are all dead and gone.
I have not enjoyed my birthday in a few
years, it seems to me that it such a lonely time,
with just the five of us to celebrate, no parties, no friends,
no external life really.
Just this small band of people, under one roof
working hard to become the very best we can be.
Today I can see just how Lucky I really am.
The fog has lifted, and I am ready to embrace this next
step in my personal evolution.
I will take the pain, I will take the abandonment
and use it as fuel.
Nitro charged.
I am not a coward.
I am no shrinking violet.
I will waste not another day
wishing for something I can not at this time have.
I will take what I know, my talents, my fearlessness
and create the life I have dreamed of.
I will get my farm in the soft hills,
I will find and develop friendships with
other humans that are worthy and brave enough
to stand in the fire with me...and laugh at the
flames that will lick every soul
clean from time to time, and I will love them fully.
I will continue to raise wonderful children, and be the ever growing
life mate of a man that has proven himself, over and over again to
be exactly what I need and want,
loyal, honest, supportive and true.
I will get back to my work, my passion,
creating art that is
unlike any one Else's, and full of promise and soul.
I will continue on, with my head up high
and be proud of the risks I have taken thus far in life.
Yes, I what?
My circumstances are temporary
and not a definition of who I really am.
Today...I am free.
Today I am living in truth, and not just sitting beside it.
Today, I launch myself back into the world,
and create the life that I want to have.
Today I am fully
Can you see me?
I am bright, raw and radiant,
yours in fearlessness,

Monday is here again, and there are blue birds in the trees

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the day
We're worn into grooves by Time - by our habits.
In the end, these grooves are going to show whether we've been second rate or champions,
each in his way in dispatching the affairs of every day.
By choosing our habits,
we determine the grooves into which Time will wear us;
and these are grooves that enrich our
lives and make for ease of mind, peace, happiness
- achievement.
~Frank B. Gilberth
I am wearing new grooves in this reality. Trying on new habits, forcing
myself to stretch, to grow, to let go.
I am sitting here, and wishing I was somewhere, anywhere else.
Some days the alone-ness of my current situation is
overwhelming. Some days it's a blessing.
I am training my mind to accept things as they are, not as I
wish them to be. Life isn't easy, life isn't fair, and life isn't
going to be, at least not for me.
I work hard on myself, my internal workings, my understanding of reality,
my capacity for making sense of what is really going on,
under the surface of things.
When I am in the studio, and working,
when the paint is flowing, and the art is capturing all of my focus,
and I am lost in worlds of texture, tone, color, and light...
I swim away from the pain, from the disappointments, from the aloofness
of this life. It's not easy to let it all roll down, and let it go.
I just keep doing my best, looking for opportunity, grasping sometimes
for a handhold in this slippery surface,
and I keep climbing up.
Hand over hand and mind over matter,
I will reach my summit, and stand in the
purified air, throw my hands up over my head
and be thankful for the hard climb.
I will survive, of that I am sure.
What I want more than anything is be able to survive with
a measure of success. Not just get through, not just get by,
not just know truth and suffer it.
I want to embrace all of the universal truths, and not be burned in the flame.
Today I will work hard, I will burn the candle at both ends,
and I will light my own way.
I will stand on the summit in my mind today, and practice feeling
success. I want to know the feeling well, when the day arrives that I actually
get to take it home, inside and let it live there.
I will practice, I will teach, I will lead, and in that truth,
I will evolve into the being I am
struggling to become.
It's not easy, but I know it's got to be worth it.
So what will you do today?
What are the choices for you,
today, in this reality, that help you to feel successful?
What Summit are you reaching for?
What is success as a definition, for you?
This is one of my ways of growing beyond the edges,
to write it all down here, for you to read.
Just today, Just Imagine,
Living in truth,
Raw & Radiant,

Monday in the BAD! Kitty Lands

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the Day:
"I guess you are kind of curious as to who I am, but I am one of those who do not have a regular name. My name depends on you. Just call me whatever is in your mind.
If you are thinking about something that happened a long time ago: Somebody asked you a question and you did not know the answer.
That is my name.
Perhaps it was raining very hard.
That is my name.
Or somebody wanted you to do something. You did it. Then they told you what you did was wrong- "Sorry for the mistake,"- and you had to do something else.
That is my name.
Perhaps it was a game that you played when you were a child or something that came idly into your mind when you were old and sitting in a chair near the window.
That is my name.
Or you walked someplace. There were flowers all around.
That is my name.
Perhaps you stared into a river. There was somebody near you who loved you. They were about to touch you. You could feel this before it happened. then it happened.
That is my name.
Or you heard someone calling from a great distance. Their voice was almost an echo.
That is my name.
Perhaps you were lying in bed, almost ready to go to sleep and you laughed at something, a joke unto yourself, a good way to end the day.
That is my name.
Or you were eating something good and for a second forgot what you were eating, but still went on, knowing it was good.
That is my name.
Perhaps it was around midnight and the fire tolled like a bell inside the stove.
That is my name.
Or you felt bad when she said that thing to you. She could have told it to someone else: Somebody who was more familiar with her problems.
That is my name.
Perhaps the trout swam in the pool but the river was only eight inches wide and the moon shone on iDeath and the watermelon fields glowed out of proportion, dark and the moon seemed to rise from every plant.
That is my name."
~Richard Brautigan From the book "In watermelon sugar" 1968
I was a weird kid, I learned to read late, because I had dyslexia, and they thought I was a dumb bunny. My I.Q. in reality, hovers just a few points below Einstein's. This is before cable TV, video games, personal computers, and teachers who knew what dyslexia even was. When I started memorizing the words they gave me to learn so fast that they could not keep up with me any longer, they sent me back to the regular classrooms, with the regular kids, who all knew how to sound out words, I just knew what the words were.
I became addicted to reading back in those days, and now read at about 1500 words per minute, with an almost photographic memory.
When I was a kid, I read 12 to 15 books a week, and my allowance was spent in the paperback book trader store. I would take in a dozen books to trade and come out with a dozen books to read, half I paid for the other half were credit for the books I brought back. After a year of seeing my face behind a large stack of books about everything I could find, the old lady that owned the store, just told me to take them and bring them back every week, she was tired from just watching me, and having to keep up with my account.
I was careful, never tore pages, never creased the bindings, so the books were in just as good of shape when I brought them back.
When I was in trouble growing up, my parents would punish me, by taking away my books. I hated that more than anything.
Today, with an adults life I can only read about half of what I did as a child.
I only read 6 books a week on average now.
I still have a photographic memory, although my retention is only at about 80% of what it was when I was younger and my brain worked like a sponge on crack.
I skipped four grades in school and was the youngest Homecoming queen my high school had ever had. I went to college just so the schools could keep me in books, as I had read them all they had in the library already. I would read the phone books of towns I was in when I traveled as a child, thinking they were very interesting, all those names listed, with numbers...very interesting to me at least. I used to walk down the street reading a book, and never look up, or look where I was going...I never tripped or ran into anyone, like my Grandmother kept saying I was going to do someday. She was afraid I would break my neck, she told everyone at her weekly bridge group. I used the prop up my book and fold clothes, cook dinners, and do household chores. I used to read anything at all, but now I am more selective. I used to write letters to my favorite authors, telling them what I thought of the stories they wrote, and I have several hand written letters back from them. Richard Brautigan is one of them, he sent me a copy of Watermelon Sugar with the letter, and I wrote to tell him thank you, but after reading the book, I thought that he had the wrong idea about how old I was at the time.
I was 10.
He thought I was 20 something, he said when he wrote back, I was a little younger than his own daughter at the time, he was embarrassed, I was thrilled.
Arthur C. Clark also wrote me once, he said I should think about boys I thought about girls instead. I don't like doing as I am told.
I was 13.
I love to read.
So why am I telling you this story?
Because I wanted you to know
my name.
Be well, Live Well,
and share the love.

Sunday & I have a pretty new blog!

BAD! Kitty
Makes a few
I just wanted a pretty blog again.
I mean the other one was getting on my last nerve
And I wanted to shoot it dead,
so I did.
This one is pretty, and I hope easy for you
to read and enjoy. Why dontcha' hit the
comment button and tell me what you think? K?
Cool Beans.
I am working on some new artworks,
and trying to get good shots of them to share with you here.
The art sale is going well with art patrons from all over the globe getting their paintings, and sending me notes of happiness and joy.
That is always a good thing.
I also have almost completed my first art book for sale, meaning I have created a collage and writings book, the collages all being one of a kind and laminated...well because this BAD! Kitty has three boys, who love my work... and when I am making a book, they want to see it, along with the drool king Mr. McWiggles and the Tiny BAD! Kitty LuLu, who will not stay off of anything, a grrrls gotta protect the art, while still making it. Laminated collages are really fun to make and they will last forever. I am binding the first edition now. I hope to make several, depending on how well they are liked by my patrons and fans. You never know till you try...Meow!
So, it's a lazy Sunday, I am supposed to be resting, because I pulled my hip out of place and it hurts to sit down on my sit down spot, but I have to work in some way every day, or some one might get hurt. My mate man tells me it's like his need to work out every day, it's how I relax. I do love to work. My work anyway...I am ignoring the hair in the corners, that is quietly weaving itself into a hair carpet, and the dust bunnies have been making babies all over the place...damn bunnies.
But I don't care, I have a pretty blog, and a reason to lay down and rest now.
So I am off to do just that, and give orders to the small men in the house to clean something, or bring me something, or stop fighting and tell them No! every five minutes...don't hate my glam lifestyle f0lks,
I just can't help being so
Love to all,

Monday~ I have Trout Colored Dreams for today~

'The Wonder of it all'
Collage 2006 by: HMBT
BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the Day:
"Our life is composed greatly from dreams,
from the unconscious,
and they must be brought into
connection with action.
They must be woven together."
I did not dream
of monsters,
of temptations
or of desires.
I dreamt of
ideas, like so many
speckled fish
salmon and green
bellies full of eggs
free of the
stream of
onto my dinner plate
of consciousness.
Trout colored dreams.
Inspiration followed me
awake and
is sitting in the corner
waiting for me
to take a
swim, get wet
and leap
into the unknown.
~HuBMle 9/11/06
I have a full schedule today.
So busy, busy, busy...
just like a fish caught in a
fast moving current
I keep swimming upstream.
Have a wonderful day,
P.S. The Etsy Sale continues!
Pssst! Go buy some art.
The sale post is a couple down,
just keep swimming...I mean scrolling.

Sunday and I am Thinking...

'Dragon Breath'
Created by HMBT 2006
The text in the middle:
"I Imagine therefore I belong and I am free."
"Spell of the Elements"
By: Elizabeth Jennings
Fire and water, air and earth
Contend, unite. A Magic birth
Is taking place somewhere not far
Celebrated by a star.
Take the music of the wind,
Take the fingers of a mind
Making, Breaking, letting go.
Take the blanket of the snow
And a necklace of the stars,
Take the footsteps of the hours.
All can spell-bind, all can build,
All will come if you have called.
We are subject to a spell.
It is married to free-will.
Come the spring, the earth will lie
Lucky under lucky sky.
No determinism has
Power to hold us long. We pass
Into every element,
Come and gone but never spent.
May the world be yours today
under a lucky sky,

Quote for the Day:
"Say not that honor is the child of boldness,
nor believe thou that the hazard of life
alone can pay the price of it:
it is not to the action that it is due,
but to the manner of performing it. "

I am also adding more items to the Art Sale at Etsy,

Friday, another weeks end.
I am working hard, as usual, and expecting
great things of myself...because that is the only way
I can carry myself, with
great expectations, not of the world, but of myself.
Self exploitation,
is one of my greatest gifts,
I just have to police my practices
with an iron fist
and a soft tongue.
Speaking in my dreams
I woke myself up
asking myself,
"Well, are you ready Freddy?"
Yes, as a matter of fact... Yes I am ready.
What's next?
What goal do I set?
What plan of action do I take today?
What opportunities do I take, or for that matter create today?
Saying No to the rest, so that I may say Yes to the best.
Will I make it through another day?
Of course...I continue...You can't stop this train,
I hope you packed a lunch...
it may be a bumpy ride,
and it may take many days and nights to
see it to the end of my journey...
so I hope you like
the view from
where you are today.
I am Raw & Radiant,
the world is my oyster,
these words, my seed
for the pearl that is growing
in my minds eye.
FYI: I am still having a huge art sale,
and yes I am still
asking for the sale.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio ~ Wednesday's Child~

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
Quote for the Day:
" If you want peace of mind, do not find fault with others.
Learn rather to see your own faults.
Learn to make the whole world your own;
no one is a stranger, my child, the whole world is your own."
~ Sri Sarada Devi
Peace of mind... Is that what I quest for?
I sometimes don't think that it is,
and other times, I desire nothing more.
Peace in all ways.
Peace of my mind,
peace in my heart,
peace in my world,
peace in my family,
peace simple and plain.
Looking inward, into the small places inside
I see where I made the turns, the choices,
I see where I created a place where peace could live
and where I built walls to keep it at bay.
I see.
Peace isn't a sought after commodity,
peace is not an attainable lesson to be learned or taught.
Peace is acceptance,
Peace means freedom,
peace means I stand for who I am,
now and what I will be in the future.
As I change,
As I grow,
As I feel lost, as I feel found,
as I feel left behind,,
as I feel...all ego statements..
peace isn't a feeling,
it's a state of being.
I ask the great Universal Guide
for that one taste, that state of being,
so that I may continue growing into
the Human
the woman
the being
the Maker that
I am, and then create
peace with those truths.
Making peace within myself first,
then I'll start on the world at large.
I can not teach what I have not learned,
and this lesson is just at the tip of my finger tips,
salt on the tip of my tongue,
I taste, I hold,
without fear.
I will seek peace within,
and practice that lesson
May the world be yours today,

BAD! Kitty Art Studio ~ The start of something New~

Quote of the day:

"If the world be shut without,

I'll sail the hidden seas within."

~Margaret Prescott Montague


Blood red poppies,

closed tight against

the skies

tears, shed in retrospect

marking the trail

of the path

the weaver began,

before my story was born.

The veil

of tears, this world

my world,

our world, spinning

and changing the story of

breath, blood, bone


the bright red

miscarriages of

the unkown

closed tight to the

mornings dew,

protecting themselves

the pain of knowing


only to open their

hungry throats

for the power of the


that can only





from within

my human


~HuMBle 9/05/06


May the world be yours today,

I am going to make it mine,

I accept that alone I may stand in this world,

solitude is good...

for the art, good for the spirit,

good for the truth to make itself known,

and when that happens for this human being, I find

myself always full of courage,

and determination.

For this is my story

this is my life,

my mistakes,

my truths,

my intellect,

my human soul, it's all mine, and I share it here.

Through the veil of this world,

this reality may bring me closer to many

it also draws me away from my inner self,

and with the release of formless ego,

I find one-ness with all that is, and all that will be.

I set the pace, I make the music, I write the words,

I feel the pain, I regret chances not taken, I forget the past,

I dwell on the future, I dream impossible dreams, I create this life, because

I have no choice but to continue with what I know...

I am not just me...An ego, a body, a taxable, exploitable


I am a soul with a body, not a body with a soul.

So, I begin this week with something new,

something I thought I had lost in the move,

my spirit, my soul,

stepping out first...

let the human form follow,

my bright red trail...

let the human follow,

my dream trail,

let the human suffer,

while I blaze the path

ahead with willingness




Can you see me?

I am Raw & Radiant,

burning, and sometimes

lost in mystic


and soul-full communion

with the great unfolding of

the Eternal Flow.

Today I accept this understanding.

BAD! Kitty Art Studio - Friday 9/01/06

BAD! Kitty Art Studio
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
Here's to the struggle, and to the purpose
and to understanding the meaning of that
I raise my glass in good faith
to the hard days, and the easy
for I do not wish for an easy life,
but for enough strength to endure a tough one.
I re-worked the art web site yesterday,
taking off the slow loading frames,
re-vamping the advertising to
the lower sections of the page,
and adding a section of
recent sales for people to take a gander at.
I am hoping that making the work load faster
(removing the dreaded frames)
will allow me a higher capture rate,
and have seen longer stay times already.
So take a look and give me some feedback if you feel so
In other news...
I am dealing with my brain pan
feeling a little squishy
because of the long hours I have been putting in
on artwork, writing (editing ARGH!)
and consulting with clients.
Combating fatigue and pain with positive thinking
and willful determination
to be more than
my set of circumstances.
Finding ways to increase my revenue,
lower my chronic nerve pain,
and elevate my souls mission
can make a Kitty tired somedays.
But in true BAD! Kitty fashion
nothing slows me down,
affects my self opinion of my internal workings,
or makes me want to quit.
Never say die,
never surrender,
adapt, conquer
and overcome.
In other words suck it up and stick it out, sugar-lumps!
The kids are doing well in school, adjusting it seems...
Mate Man is doing well in his new position of
Uber-manager of all things,
and I am working hard
more than 12 hours a day to re-capture
my place in the market, and in my
personal mission.
So it's all good.
I like having too much to do and not enough time
to do it all,
every day above ground is good.
That's all for today,
may you all have happy holiday weekend,
and a safe one too.
Be well,
I am still asking for the sale...Just FYI to whatever universal
spirit/guide is on duty up there...Just a little BAD! Kitty humor...
