Warming, as if in Spring

Warming, as if in Spring

Madness need not be all breakdown. It may also be break-through. It is potential liberation and renewal as well as enslavement and existential death.

But I just can’t stop thinking about how there is an element of fear in public places that I didn’t have before.

Your mother wears combat boots

Reverb Day 10 What radical act of love or non-conformity did you embrace this year?  How did performing this alchemy affect your ancestors and what is the gold waiting to be shared with future relations? I don’t really have much of an answer for this. I can think that perhaps this year I became more […]

Prepared for Serendipity

Prepared for Serendipity

Reverb Day 8: Alchemy and Serendipity The answer for serendipity is easy. It happened a little more than a year ago, but it has made my life immeasurably better–finding a good friend again. Another friend happened to post an instagram pic of getting her hair done and who was doing her hair but one of […]

Sentence first- verdict afterwards

Sentence first- verdict afterwards

Reverb Day 7 I am in such a holding pattern, I don’t know what I am the verdict of. Still here. Still trying to move forward but not lose touch with with the love, hearings and endings I’ve found from moving back home. It is a good place in many ways and I’ve crossed over […]

Unweaving

Unweaving

Reverb Day 6 Looking at the thoughts and patterns that may be holding you back from living the life you want, trace back through the generations of your family and see if your beliefs originated generations ago. In 2016, how can you bring healing to these patterns of thought that are holding you back? There […]

Behind Blue Eyes

Behind Blue Eyes

Reverb Day 5 Supposed to show a picture of myself on this one. I hate having my picture taken. I have a round head, an overbite and not much of a chin. I’m seeing wrinkles and I pick at my cuticles. I have finally outgrown the scare cut of a year ago August, thanks to […]

A Hollow Show

A Hollow Show

Reverb Day 4 There are ways to feel better when I’m just keeping my head above water. Unfortunately those are the hardest things to do when you find yourself in the middle of the ocean.   Living in a house you might need to show at any time is very tiring. Having people you don’t […]

Lonesome, talking to the moon

Lonesome, talking to the moon

Reverb Day 3 I haven’t spend much time outside at night. Not this summer, with all the rain, not recently in the fall. I used to do this every weekend at least for a bit. What changed? Some friends moved away. I liked to sit on our patio with them and drink wine and smoke […]

Stuff Happens

Stuff Happens

Reverb Day 2 I’m a little behind, that is no surprise. So much stuff going on. Trying to maintain a semblance of a real life while selling a house is not the easiest thing to do. We’ve purged and changed  and rearranged. We clean every single day.  But it is so important that Bean have […]

Lists like prayers

Reverb Day 1 Oh I never managed to do August moon. I wanted to, but there were some crazy things going on then. Serious jaw pain–like I hadn’t ever experienced before that made me miss work and actually cry for days. And I couldn’t take Ibuprophen at night because of another medication I was taking. […]
