Thought Spinning

My thoughts are spinning. Each with emotional images swirling, overlapping, and fracturing. I blink and exhale. My mind begins to pace my breath. My breath slows, my thoughts calm.

Tonight, I created this image using Silk Paints while thinking about the cycle of life and the promp: “Why am I doing the things I am doing right now?” This post is the eighth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.

Special thanks to Eliza David Lady Writer, for sharing her writing prompts for NaBloPoMo. See her list of 30 prompts at

Saturday Shore Sighted

The first day of vacation.

My time till now has followed a rolling wave of stress.

Now I can see the shore.


June 30, 2012. Today’s post was inspired by the One Word writing prompt, “Saturday.” I had 60 seconds to write about the one word. I created this image in ArtRage Studio Pro. © 2012 Steph Abbott. All rights reserved.

Where’s that Cowboy Mouth disc?


The doors closed, my mind focused on the task at hand, I can create a masterpiece singing along to “Jenny Says” by Cowboy Mouth. This rockin’, drum-heavy song never fails to reverberate within my soul. It never fails to carry me through stressful times. I live for Fred LeBlanc’s lyrics, “When the world is coming down on me, I let it go!”
