I hope the internet will do what it does best in regards to these photos, and somehow makes this post reach Erykah Badu. I won't hold my breath, but it would be nice if she knew how much she inspired me. I was at a low point in life and I felt so lost. More lost than I could have ever expected to be. My eyes were searching for a physical solution. I was looking for the duct tape to seal my leaky pipes of a heart and busting at the seams mind. But then I found a song, Out My Mind, Just In Time by, of course, Erykah Badu. I'm not sure what lessons Badu was learning at the time, but I am grateful. At a time when feeling things felt dreadful, Badu, you made it beautiful again. That song still rises the heaven within me every time I hear it. I've never had that before. I painted this when I felt I finally, for a moment in all the heavy shit, had clarity. I honestly started painting as a way to channel my anxiety and depression. I've learned to self motivate and compliment because the world won't love me like I would and can.
