I haven't been on this website for a while now. I haven't been able to be very creative I feel like all that creativity has been taken out of me. So I'm going to create something for me and only me.

Control Is Only An Illusion

A thin film covered my eyes

Through it, I saw what the puppet master wanted me to see

I let him hold the strings

I danced, cried, laughed, and lived as he wanted me to

 

He held the power

Because I gave it to him

Freely, without reservation

Take my life in your hands and I will do as you wish

 

He’d build me up

I’d see beauty all around me

I’d laugh, smile, and love with all I had

Feeling like I could…

Sally Fallacy, more of chapter one

“Hey, Sal, wait up!” a familiar voice called from behind me.

Ugh. Maybe if I pretend to be deaf, he’ll go away. Though somehow, I doubt I’d get that lucky.

“Sally! I know you can hear me. Would you wait up?” that familiar voice sounded again, a little out of breath and quite a bit closer now.

I stopped, turned, and faced the king of the chess club. When will he ever get it through his head that I am not interested in being his video project subject? Aren’t there other kids…

Sally Fallacy, a beginning

It's a meager start, but it's a start none the less! I wanted to share my start to this project with you guys and dolls, hope you enjoy it! The art is obviously not my own and would need someone to draw something for me, if anyone is interested. :)

 

Sally…

The Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 4

When someone smiles at me I am no longer the master of my face because my heart takes control and I smile back without even thinking! I believe smiles are the currency of the heart and I always feel blessed when I receive those beautiful heartfelt deposits. When I began the journey of creating 5 gourd vessels to be given away I never anticipated…

Burning My Innocence





Have you ever seen the KKK burn a cross with the intention of deliberately scaring people? Have you ever seen men with white hoods covering their faces? I have. Have you ever heard men wearing white hoods yelling obscenities about ( insert N word pluralized) and threatening to kill said person because of the color of their skin? I have. Have you ever…

The Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 3

     For my third gourd gifting adventure I did not have to look far for a particular gourd that was to embody my creativity. Nope, I did not need to look far because when I cut the top off the gourd I used for my second gourd gifting I set that gourd's neck next to my violets waiting to be planted. That is when I saw a flower vase gourd! So, I picked up the gourd top, spun it around trying to figure out just how to craft it into a flower holding vessel when the…

Ever Changing

Standing in front of the mirror

I see the changes

Old versions of me shed themselves

Without even noticing at the time

That was what pain, determination, and love did to me

 

A year from now, there will be more changes

As yet more of my old skin flakes off

Even weeks from now

Perhaps even tomorrow

Ever growing, ever evolving

 

I am not the girl I once was

And nor am I the girl I will be

Always…

ABC's of my life

I was attempting to take a nap and my mind began to wander, as it often does. I started thinking about letters of the alphabet and things about me and in my life as it is to represent each one. I decided to run with it and make a blog out of it. :)

 

Applying myself, applying to jobs, Archer

 

Bowling, books, blogging

 

Cooking, cleaning, creativity

 

Doug, dreaming, doing

 

Empathy, experimenting,…

Instead of a pricey affair this Valentine's Day, I choose this instead....

This Thursday is Valentine’s Day. Instead of going out to a fancy restaurant, we chose to eat bacon cheeseburgers that we had once before at a local pub within walking distance. We might get in our two free weekly practice games at the lanes we bowl league at or we'll just watch some Archer on DVD. We’re not buying one another pricey gifts or doing anything out of the ordinary. Why? Some people are into that, we’re not. We choose to treat it as another chance to spend time together, as…

RIP Estelle Helton

This was actually written the week after I attended my favorite Aunts funeral in 2007.  It's the anniversary of her birth today and the anniversary of her death tomorrow.  She's sorely missed, so I'm posting this in her memory. 

Laughter through tears…

When I…

"The Great Escape"

Five o'clock seemed like an eternity.

Now traffic is at a snail’s pace.

Slowly the city is in the rear view.

The traffic becomes less and less.

Speed limit raises and I’m racing off.…

My Great Gourd Giveaway ~ Gourd # 2

     Outside of art classes in high school I've never faced a deadline for completion of any of my artsy or crafty adventures. Like many artist (dare I call myself an artist?), but anyway, like many artist I  work at my own pace which can at times be no pace at all for long periods of time. Obligating myself to 5 people with a promise to create something homemade for them was the best creative boost…
