I don't want to be angry but at times I cannot contain this emotion. I see the way the media is now "celebrating" him yet when he was ALIVE and needed them to stand by him they were harsh, cruel and hung him at the gallows. It was done to Princess Diana, too. Who are we to judge, especially now when so many reports are surfacing that the allegations were made because money was being made. It makes me sick!
So, I will take moments like these and fully embrace them because I will never allow a moment to pass without there being understanding, compassion, love, forgiveness... life is too short. When it's over, it's too late. All we have is here and now.
Then there is Farrah. I had her haircut. I had her dolls. Of all the "Angels" I wanted to be her. I should find the photo of myself with the "Farrah". I think you'd get such a kick out of it. I know I do. It meant so much to me to have that style. Oh, precious childhood, where have you gone?! A few years ago my "Mazzy" embodied her in a tribute piece I painted.
I watched the documentary she left behind and in those moving images and poet words of pain, suffering, love and passion I found pure hope and raw courage. Gone was the icon and there was the woman, REAL in every sense, that will forever inspire me. Inspire me in ways that REALLY matter most in life.
I pray they both rest in peace but that their lingering legacies move us forward and inspire us to do more with our own lives... no matter what!
Writing calms my senses and opens the doors of perception which allow the "ALICE" in me to step down into the rabbit hole, unafraid, and ready to conquer new moments, new beginnings, new experiences...

"Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself - and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That's what real love amounts to - letting a person be what he really is."
~ Jim Morrison
I love that belt!

"My intuition never fails me. I fail it. My heart is my compass. My mind my watch. My spirit my diary."

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore -
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of someone gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
«Tis some visitor», I muttered, «tapping at my chamber door:
Only this and nothing more».

This collection of pix of a young starlet Marilyn are amongst my favorte images of her. There is something so magical going on between the sea, the sand and her golden light.
I grew up playing on the sands and dancing in the seamist of Tobey Beach where these photos were taken! What a thrill I get thinking how lucky I am to have done so.
Marilyn would've been 83 this year. Forever loved and missed but never forgotten xoxox
This video is adorable.... the song fits perfectly ;-)
I imagine mermaids splashing and singing along the bubbling seashores. On the blazing horizon the sun radiates new lights.
I emerge from the blissful isolation of my melodious art studio nearly prepared to introduce a new series of paintings. But, since the collection isn't quite complete I will wait to write more. I will unveil them when the time is right.
I've been so inspired lately but not painting as much. I sketch more than ever. I adore the ever changing outlets of creativity, I am not hindered or stifled or bored, I am constantly inspired and in motion.
Things in my life are growing and deepening therefore my soul expands like the Archangel's wings. There is excitement and anticipation in the air falling all around like soft summer rain. The golds and silvers of days & nights glisten on the wings of the blackest blackbird.
"Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise..."
