sleep sleep sleep

can hardly keep my eyes open

think of how wonderful it was to see luca

to be with my sister

and have katy by my side every minute

it’s getting harder

i can hardly think straight

my art has stoppped

that’s very sad

i’ll miss everyone

love, compassion to all

what great memories of an incredible life.




hanging in there now.

sundown june 29th (c) scott morgan 2013

Scott woke up this evening and asked me to take down something to share with you all. He said it is time to tell people what is happening with him. I said on the blog? He said yes. He said that he wanted people to know how great it was to have Lindy here and Luca but that he couldn’t even move himself to look at them and could hardly talk.  I told him I’d been posting regularly to the blog and I read him my last few posts since the July parade post. He was silent a few minutes and then began the “sleep sleep sleep” monologue which I wrote in his style as a freeform poem. We’ve chosen to post a picture of the last painting he was able to do, last Friday, with his friend Luca here also working with paint.

  1. for scotty

    we dream our dreams . . .
    life has been full of dreams
    full of breathing and crying and laughing and loving
    but always dreaming

    the warm touch of your smile
    soft words
    shared food
    all pieces of my dream

    dreams live in the waking
    dreams live in sleep
    watched by our moon
    cradled by our earth

    we all come together
    we are dreams dreaming
    together always in our separateness

    you are floating in my dream
    now and forever
    we are floating together
    in the cradle of our dreams

    softly . . . iana

  5. Travel,my long ago friend, on wings of light and love. Actually thank you for sharing that you already are … your last painting from this side says and shows it gloriously … another my heart must own!

    Thank you for showing us about really living … about being and living true to who you really are “balls to the wall”!!! Not me but the only way I could think to express your undying commitment to SELF expression.

    It has been an honor to be invited on this rare and reverent journey. And it’ is an honor to know a true Renaissance Man … and his Soul Mate who created the space for us all to be so blessed.
    Namaste Tanya
