Criatura is Spanish for a living thing, usually a newborn baby.  There is driftwood all over the beach - yet these pieces insist that I stop and pick them up.  

They seem to come alive in my hands, but, unlike the splash trash art, only a few have wanted a name.  They are simply criaturas.....

I was listening to American Gods and Wednesday came to live with me.

Goddess of the Broken Heart
Goddess of the Broken Heart

She came to me the day I learned my friend had been killed by her husband because she was leaving him. The heart and blood are made out of Buddhist prayer flag.
