I've re-started a Tumblr page, and I've created a companion page to this page. The goal is, to keep what is good, to focus on the good things, to find ways to use the internet creating one's own filters for content while also creating content. I couldn't take anymore of the ugliness. I am a… Continue reading Inspirations
Anyone else here a book-a-holic? Show of hands? First of all, I was going to quit all this and I didn't and I said I wasn't going to talk about it, and I'm not. But, if it makes anyone feel better, I do have all that sorted out, thanks. So there's that. Then, about five… Continue reading Confessions of a Book-a-holic
Masquerading in the steady winds of the Autumn night, Bonnie is sure she's seen a monster. Alice Monaghan has been entrusted with a secret, the viridescent mist is keeping one too. Something lurks in the grass, by the light of the Scorpio Moon, while Pauline walks the cemetery, row after row, each day. Sandy Jefferson… Continue reading Covenants of Lingering Bones, Release Day.
You bark-tweet, shout-scream, whisper-dream, some thing into the void, Clamoring for relevance for distribution to the masses the echo back that tells you your voice reached someone somewhere somehow From here in a quiet room where words play out a merry tune and out of tune relinquish themselves unto the blues the dirges from the… Continue reading Saturday
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kijpcUv-b8M The other day someone shared this great quote from Freddie Mercury that really spoke to me. I've found several versions of the quote. What that means is that what he meant when he wrote whatever it was, and what the listener/reader gets out of it or interprets it as, may… Continue reading Mr. Mercury
https://youtu.be/NYqiLJBXbss This isn't a documentary about a photographer of New York fashion and, or, street fashion. It is a documentary about an artist, whose medium happens to be photography, a man to whom fashion is art, and that is how he photographs it. Through his lens, a world of vibrant eccentricity has been captured, cataloged,… Continue reading Through Another Lens
https://youtu.be/GAiQf-jQhWI I love this profile piece on Grace Slick, just being unapologetically herself. https://youtu.be/WAJJE5Wo_OY https://youtu.be/tKtJ0XTwgTE Keep making your art. Let your art change, evolve, grow. Most of the creative people that I know, they have more than one area of creative interest and expression. And remember, what the dormouse said, “Feed your head.”
It's Shakespeare, darlings, try not to screw it up. Several years ago I went on a trip with my husband and there was this guy walking around wearing a red and white t-shirt with a picture of Shakespeare on it and the caption read, "This shit writes itself." For some reason at that very moment… Continue reading Shakespeare, Darlings…
"We tell ourselves stories in order to live. To see enough and write it down, I tell myself, and then some day when I am only going through the motions and doing what I am supposed to do which is write, on that bankrupt morning I will simply open my notebook and there it will… Continue reading Quotes from Joan Didion.
Writing...I wanted to say something about writing. I never worried about it. I picked up a pen, I sat down at the keys and I wrote. I ate, I slept, I did what I needed to do or what needed doing and I wrote until I was done writing. At thirty-five years old I had… Continue reading My Magnificent, Never-ending, Love Affair With Words
"I love music, any kind of music, any kind of music." That's not completely true, there are some things that get on my nerves or that I cannot bring myself to listen to and most of those things fall into the category of screamo. Growing up in a house where there was live music… Continue reading Sunday Morning Coming Down
