The Girl with the Peace Tattoo, Singleton Hippie Art

The Girl with the Peace Tattoo
(C) Singleton 2008

She was there
in the crowd,
Leon Russell on the stage,
a barefooted ballerina
flitting over mud puddles
and ice chests,
totally free...

And behind the pink
cloak of yesterday,
she still dances...

and every now and then...
someone notices
the tattoo....

Sometimes you have to go back,
to get it right. 8 1/2 by 11 on cardstock. Colored pencils, ink, markers, Michelobs, peace and love. I was a hippie then. And I thought I was an artist. But nobody put the two of them together...

Sister Sing....Your girls always seem to hold an expression that catches some wisdom, sometimes forgotten....
To me, her expression say 'Yeah, but you think you know all about me, but have I got a surprise for you.'

Ahhh, sweet sisterlove...
Isn't it the surprise that's always the punchline? the pixie~line? The "I might just change this ending" line?
And don't we always know where we're going, but
never know where we're gonna end up?

I'll do that! I'll bop you some Baby Love! Beautiful Child!

Maithri...
Goin' off on a
"til I'm 10 again" weekend with
theskinnylittlesister.....
sidewalk chalkin' the streets,
belting out karaoke Janis Joplin,
dancin' on the wrap around porch,
and jsyk....
your name will probably come up more than once...
Because
everytime we get together
and talk about
what we always talk about....
old souls...
peace and love...
fate...
eternity...
butterflies....
your name comes up!
If your ears are burning....
It's us...
Butterflies out in the wild!

Peace~love my friends,
on wings.....
