Danielle Steel

Here's a great write up/interview of author Danielle Steel at Glamour mag. How has Steel written 179 books? She writes/works twenty to twenty-two hours a day. If that sounds like b.s. to you, you might not be a writer, or at least not one who knows what it's like to lose yourself in the story,… Continue reading Danielle Steel

Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan

The rain has been seemingly incessant. It was ingrained in me throughout my youth not to be a "complainer." However, seeing as how I am now firmly into my middle age, I am, on occasion, given to indulging myself in a bit of complaining and I will tell you, I think I've had it with… Continue reading Inclement Weather, and Quotes from Saint Joan

CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

  Okay, as mentioned, I've been busy. So I hadn't checked some of my emails. When I did get around to that, I had an email from Kindle Direct informing me that they have merged with CreateSpace, the publishing platform I've used as an indie author and privateer to publish my wares. I also use… Continue reading CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing Are Now One

Just Kids, Patti Smith

I loved this memoir from Patti Smith of her early years in New York with Robert Mapplethorpe. Some of the subject matter won't be everyone's cup of tea, the title doesn't reveal that this is a book for adults, and it is very gritty in places. If you are unfamiliar with who Robert Mapplethorpe was… Continue reading Just Kids, Patti Smith

Strong. Woman.

This statue, this sculpture, this piece of art, is how I feel, today, at forty-seven and a half years old. I don't recall where I grabbed this picture from so I apologize for not crediting whomever the artist (Penny Hardy) is. In addition to music, I also occasionally use artwork, pictures, paintings, photographs, for inspiration… Continue reading Strong. Woman.

Through Another Lens

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

Grace Slick

https://youtu.be/GAiQf-jQhWI I love this profile piece on Grace Slick,ย  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, โ€œFeed your head.โ€
