Sacred Razzle Dazzle

When we get old we get greyish.

But on the inside our souls get more and more colourful with each passing day.

It is the same with all living things.

Souls aren't like skin - souls can grow to be hot red and shimmering purple or maybe cool green and blazing yellow with a gold inlay.

This is a tree of sparrow souls.  Drab in our world gorgeous when they return to the source of life.

I think of it as sacred razzle dazzle.

Butterbrains 'Helps' Out

There are times when Butterbrains is more active in my life than usual.  She's really trying to help right now.  sigh.

Feed Me! Feed Me! Feed Me!

I'm being held captive by the image of a lactating serpent.

Not only is It lactating, It is producing more milk than the three bird-headed Venus figures can swallow.

And the serpent is aggressively protecting Its nest.

I have the feeling that I'm looking in a mirror.

Secnarf: No Sex Please, We're Canadian Politicians

Secnarf - the only politician who looks like a disgraced former Federal Conservative cabinet minister issued a press release today stating that she is running in the Ontario Provincial election.  I caught up with her in Port Weller this afternoon.

Francie: So Secnarf, this is interesting news.  Let's get right down to business.  What's your platform?

Secnarf: As always I stand for electoral reform, Francie.

Francie: eek.

Secnarf:  Politics should be a calling. 

Francie:  A calling? Like to the priesthood? Are you suggesting celibacy? 

Secnarf:  Absolutely.  

Francie:  That will be popular. Maybe not with politicians but definitely for the rest of us. I haven't slept well since Rob Ford went home to eat. Can we check back next week to see how your campaign is going?

Secnarf: Yes and remember:

Vote for Secnarf, 

the only politician 

who looks like a 

former cabinet

#Bring Back Our Girls

Islamist terrorists brutalize girls and women.

I'm trusting that more is going on behind the scenes to bring back the kidnapped Nigerian girls than the polite little televised groups of negotiators presently being deployed to Africa.

I struggle with the thought that these men should be hunted down and killed.

I would rather see them caught and publicly castrated. 

It would be a fitting punishment.

The Insane and the Dead

Since I posted the image of myself with a blind fish on my head I've been wanting to revisit the idea.

I mean I knew it was on my head - but not 100% sure what its job was.

Now that I've had a chance to get another look at the image I can see that it appears on the heads of other people, too.

Who knew!

These three 'fools' think they are free.

But the blind fish, which cannot see or feel, is what keeps them bound to the conventions of their social group.  

It is born of fear.

Its job is to suck up truly creative thoughts, digest them and shit them out as something palatable to society (or their particular sub-culture in society).

Sometimes it seems the only people truly free to explore their creativity are the insane and the dead.

Me and Isaac Together Again

I JUST KNOW you want to see this again!!

It's me and Sir Isaac Brock

as we appeared last June!!!!

Are you SWOONING??

I am. Totally.

And I have good reason!


The things they don't tell you in history class, eh!

Who knew she went twice?!?!

Mind you, if I knew he looked this good I'd be racing through the American lines six times a day.  I'd be taking cows, roosters, guppies - whatever I could get my hands on to get through the Yankee lines.

Sometimes a woman's gotta sacrifice to save her country.

What's in a Name?

So my ETSY shop is up and running.  Maybe limping or comatose is a better description - but the fact remains that it exists!

But it doesn't have a name.

Okay it is flying (arg, another descriptive verb) under the banner franciemcglynn right know, which as far as find-ability goes might as well be the Welsh word fryfffllgyynbnyffnynnllfgg.

A friend suggested combining francie and art and calling it the 'fartshop'.

I like it but fear it wouldn't attract the gentile clientele I want.

And besides, since I have adopted a gluten free diet it would have to be called the 



I was wondering about using my blog name and calling it:  northendart.

What do you think???

PS If you haven't investigated the Etsy world you should.  I have only dipped my toe into it but it seems full of wondrous things! 

PPS  fryfffllgyynbnyffnynnllfgg isn't a real live Welsh word.

PPS These are the 2 giclee prints I'm selling
