Can You Hear the Quiet?

I’ve been doing some serious thinking about the world lately. Can you hear the quiet? This serious thinking isn’t a new thing for me. This bout of thinking began with the drug induced suicide of a rock star. I’m referring to it as drug induced because we’ll never really know and the fact is that those kinds of drugs can

It Is Still Beautiful. Chris Cornell.

Grunge is the music that my generation created, whether the label of “grunge” is one that was met with approval or acceptance or not. Passionately philosophically divested in many ways from the heavy metal and “pretty” hair bands and glam bands of the heyday of “sex, drugs, and rock and roll” of previous generations, the “heavy” in “Grunge” was born

An Unraveled Hem, Joan Didion

I’ve kept some kind of a notebook, or journal, since junior high. Thankfully, the majority of them have gone the way of the wind. I suppose that’s a nice way of saying that I destroyed them at one time or another. I recall erasing every word one January, in some other life a million years ago in the year of

Pull Together America

Written on January 24, 2017 So, it has only been a week since I posted anything, it has felt like longer. Today President Trump signed an executive order the gist of which is that the Dakota Access Pipeline is going through.

So, I’m uploading/importing files to Kindle Direct and, apparently, that can take a minute, unless I start typing something else, I figure, and never mind that I need to vacuum and dust, and I thought, I’ll write that post now. Last night I watched the HBO sort of documentary, it was more personal than that, “Bright Lights,” about Debbie Reynolds

Intellectual De-Evolution or a Cultural Cycle?

SO… Second episode of Wayward Pines, season two… Blood Harvest… The youth leader Carrie utters the line… “Our lives are more important than his arrogant.” My thought… “arrogance.” Incorrect usage of the word, wrong form. The line should have been… “Our lives are more important than his arrogance.“ What I think is, how many people heard that and didn’t realize

Feed Your Head

  I enjoyed this profile piece about Grace Slick. Unapologetically herself.   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.”

Shakespeare, Darlings…

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 it struck me as being

Unlimited

Unlimited You know what a woman wants? A badass son of a bitch who can make the trip and still treat her like the most precious being on the planet. A man who’s really a gentleman, even if sometimes she doesn’t act like much of a lady. She wants a proper rescue. She wants gallantry and chivalry and decency, chemistry
