i'd like to believe that he fully embraces a sense of play, and is not simply delirious from lack of unliquified sustenance. a lesson to us all. don't ever lose your sense of play, for if you do, God, Satan, Santa, and Al Qaeda wins. and so do girls who use the word "bestie", guys who dig girls who do, and those who insist alcohol need be photographed and put up on social media pages. God forbid. find yourself an old game of hungry hungry hippos, remember the days of "playing pretend", discover that doing a cartwheel is like riding a bike, you're never too mature to abandon capital letters, and know that skipping can still be fun at 33. and HR here shows us what is still necessary at 53. i'll check back again, when he's 70, and you are ___.
when we all break out the cry of "if it ain't broke don't fix it", the internet figures will get over it. then they can give it some feigned validity by calling it the "new normal." Trickery meets puppets. Not me. Honestly not. I just cramp with stubbornness.
oh miley. i turned off the tv, but didn't think to turn off the magazines. as i turned my head too quickly to avoid self inflicted pain-- that i decided to blame the sexified teen for ---i had an inspired thought. madonna was considered--almost by law--to be an inspiration to all things pop, female,and impressionable enough to feel honored to partake in the clumsy losing of the clothes tradition. but ...madonna grew up. grew, aged, and got wise and spiritual. humility and arm muscle is the new skinny. i believe it truly. let us all roll around on the floor in something lacy and white, in symbolic prayer. maybe they'll grow out of it and find that the way to enlightenment is to make a kabuki themed music video. it's just a simple game of follow the leader. for the sake of your kids; in Britney we trust.
Last night I went to Barnes and Noble to pick up more of those book
things, and a small boy caught my eye. He had been running around nosily
and his who I assume was his guardian was reading a romance novel, not paying attention to
how he was disturbing all around. He stopped to look at me, and before
he revved up again, I made a motion as to suggest that I was going to run with
him. He bolted and I followed and I asked; "where are we going?" He
gleefully replied, "I don't know!" Finally we landed right in front of
the children's book section. He smiled, he found mommy, auntie, nanny, stranger, somebody, and I looked down at the
first floor, to a whole lotta people looking up. One of the best nights
of my life. I think I'll do that more often.
is Larry Wessel's new feature-length documentary about an extraordinary
painter from New Mexico and her astonishing works of art.
Moore-Love is perhaps the greatest living artist working in America
today. Her works can be found in private collections throughout the
United States and Europe. She is a national treasure and yet, she is
virtually unknown. Filmmaker Larry Wessel is determined to change that
with his nine year labor of love...his upcoming feature-length
documentary called LOVE.
THE ART OF BETH MOORE-LOVE
'artwork' has always been very cynical and ANGRY. I read a quote once, I
don't remember who said it, something about the purpose of art being to
soothe the spirit after a hard day of 'reality'. What does that mean? I
once saw a two-page advertisement for some stupid car, on one side of
the fold-out was a photo of Monument Valley, morphing into the skyline
of Manhattan. On the other page, over Monument Valley was written 'The
Dream', over Manhattan was written: 'The Reality'. And I saw right away
that this was completely backwards. So my purpose as an artist is to
soothe these people who turn our world up-side down for profit? These
people who feel spiritually bereft after a hard day of raping and
pillaging? F*ck that. I will NOT. I'm going to sneak it on the wall, and
slap the sh*t out of them with the truth of it. Is there ugliness and
horror in my work? Absolutely. Do you think that my work is
distatsteful? You are correct!"

I believe story telling is an art form and blogging is a medium in which to share stories and ideas. Within this blog I hope to cover a spectrum of topics. From the serious to the silly. Here you will read my views and inquiries about subjects such as feminism, other various socio-political issues, psychology, spirituality, sexuality, and general interests such as film, art and music. You will also be exposed to my obsession with cupcakes, tea, books, Hello Kitty, and quirky day to day journeys. I enjoy learning from others as I am constantly attempting to introspect, grow and evolve. During this process I will be jotting down musings on this blog. Pull up a comfy chair and a spot of tea and join me!
