Return to Reality

Acrylic on canvas, 2011, 9" x 12".

This was painted shortly after going on antipsychotic medication. I was in a very confused state at the time, unsure of what was what any more. But through this uncertainty was hope, hope that I would find a way out of the horror movie that was my life for so long. The confusion went on for a number of months as I had been ill for a long time, but these days it doesn't bother me much any more (unless I find myself in the recovery stage of what are now much shorter episodes).

I am feeling mostly good currently, so I thought it would be best to publish a positive picture of my recovery.


  1. My friend, it seems the sign is now pointing you in a positive direction. Enjoy the journey.
    In peace and kind wishes, Gary

  2. Thank you for your kind words Gary.

    Indeed there was a positive direction at the time of painting this. Through all the confusion I was hopeful that I could end up there. So maybe I don't spend every day there, but I do spend the times I can there. Every day spent there is a blessing to be counted.

  3. Hi Lost in Space,
    Just wanted to inform you that I have bestowed another award upon your good self. What I want you to know is please do not feel any pressure to acknowledge the award. My main purpose was to bring further awareness of your site and your ongoing journey towards a more positive life.
