The Circus Of Life...

Images... Sounds... Colours... Smells...Taste...Touch...
All things to stimulate the senses...
There is so much beauty out there...
So much style and so many ideas...
Some at times revolutionary...
Some irrational and ridiculous...
Some senseless but they are ideas nonetheless...

Tonight we went on another adventure my teen and I...
When we escape together to do something... anything... just the 2 of us...
It takes me back to the time when it was just me and him...
Him and I against the world...

Our lives back then was so hard... so lonely...
We tried to move forward but life would set us 10 steps back...
No matter how hard we would try...
No matter how hard we would work...
No matter how far we would sprint...
No matter how good we were...
No matter how we would try to simplify...

It was so hard for my kid and I...
So funny to be here admiring "The Steampunk Circus"...
After fighting for survival in the Circus of Life...

Kid we've come a long way...
Now you have two sweet sisters that will forever watch over you...
Because they adore you and they need you...
Now I understand that everything we went through was not in vain...
We were sacrificing... becoming more patient and humble...
More understanding...
The pain gave us strength and now we look at each other and we can honestly say...
We did it... We made it through...
Now and forever with the love of this beautiful family that stands next to us...

Until Friday peeps... Stay Sweet!

Your questions...
I was asked about the pieces and the art show.
All pieces will be up until the end of the month of April.

What is Steampunk? 
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Steampunk is a sub-genre of science fictionalternate history, and speculative fiction that came into prominence during the 1980s and early 1990s.[1] Specifically, steampunk involves an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century and often Victorian era Britain—that incorporates prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy. Works of steampunk often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic innovations as Victorians may have envisioned them; in other words, based on a Victorian perspective on fashionculturearchitectural styleart, etc. This technology may include such fictional machines as those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne or real technologies like the computer but developed earlier in an alternate history.
Other examples of steampunk contain alternate history-style presentations of "the path not taken" for such technology as dirigiblesanalog computers, or such digital mechanical computers asCharles Babbage and Ada Lovelace's Analytical engine.
Steampunk is often associated with cyberpunk. They have considerable influence on each other and share a similar fan base, but steampunk developed as a separate movement. Apart from time period and level of technology, the main difference is that steampunk settings tend to be less dystopian.
Various modern utilitarian objects have been modded by individual artisans into a pseudo-Victorian mechanical "steampunk" style, and a number of visual and musical artists have been described as steampunk.

  1. Oh so sad and tender and written like only a mom can. Reading about your struggles, just you and your boy, and then seeing his picture brought tears to my eyes.

    This reminded me of when my mom was a single mom with me, my sis, and my bro living in public housing. I know about the "circus of life" you speak. So glad you're now at a better place.

  10. I'm there with ya' sister. For years it was just my two girls and I, struggling to survive and still maintain as a family. Those years paid off. My girls learned love, patience and compassion from me and in return shower their little siblings with it.
    Life is a struggle, especially for a single mom, but we did it, didn't we? We made it through the rough patch of doing it alone, and now we know we can face anything.
    Life is definitely a circus.
