Lucky Me

Life began with sounds

As my body waxed my hearing waned

By fourteen a wall was in my left ear

Doctors told me I won the hearing loss mega millions.

0.03% chance…


 Lucky me

How will my future play out?



They replaced my stapies with a prosthetic

Along with the bone came tinnitus

“Sizzle” “Static” “Screech” - REPEAT


Lucky Me

How will I learn to cope?


Good and Bad are a package deal

Tinnitus shredded my world into pixels like a low rez TV

For the first time since I began painting, I was hearing color

My very own pixelated world to capture in my art. 

By 23, I see the world in brush strokes

My pallet, a microcosm, representing how I perceive the world

Another surgery on my calendar


Lucky me

How will I be hurt this time?

Now in Recovery,


My World is Spinning,


The tinnitus is different,


Dizziness and on meds,


Less than 4 hours of sleep,


Scared of losing my ability to paint,



Lucky me

How can I continue with art?


You, you, and you

My friends and followers

Support from all sides, both digital and physical

I have never been more grateful for anything in my life


Lucky me

How would I continue with my art without you all?
