Thank you for “Get thee behind me, Demon”
Sometimes, plucking out the root of all evil, can hurt.
We all have shadows. I like to say “The brighter the light, the darker the shadow”

To kill the beast sometimes means sacrificing a slice of ourselves to transcend our history.
This cartoon snuck onto my canvas the other day while I was contemplating ways to integrate history, which follows us like a little demon, into the present moment…
