All that glitters is blue…

I’ve used a lot of words this week in my blog, so for this one, I will just say this: Here are some photos that were just really fun to take.  It’s just me and the pups goofing around with an antique mirror trying to incorporate some blue sky love.       It’s like she can read my mind and the visions I have in making photographs ——–(Birdie butt bomb??)   Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, […]

Absence of Indifference

    During the past few months, I have been heavily considering the tendency I have to numb myself.  It is a coping mechanism and there are many ways to numb.  For me, it’s like there is an internal off switch. It’s  been available to me since since childhood, and I still sometimes flip the switch when things get rough.  I turn off all my lights and just shut down.  My eyes are open, and I am moving, and I […]

Wanting All, Wanting None

Monster Rocket

Monster Rocket My jewelry box is full of your lockets So don’t talk to me about your deep pockets And your so called monster rocket   Your words ring…..out like trumpets As you’re draggin’ me ‘round town Baby you’re only missing a crown   Monster Rocket Monster Rocket Moster Rocket Lift me from the ground   Stop talkin’ to me about your regrets Do you even remember when we met?

The Dark Became Home

Of facts and fairytales… in chapters of suns and moons, memories of un-borrowable beauty ride the low and falling highs. A being more vivid and more blue than before The Rain arrived. The Dark became home… cooling the day-ending rays that bleed for Night in colors all Her own… The Dark became home.   About the Artist: Natalie resides in Peoria, Arizona, with her husband, two children, and two dogs. Her artistic journey has taken many twists and turns but […]

To the Sun, to the Sky, to the Moon

This very morning… To the sun I did sing Won’t your please give me a name For I have lost mine along the way And now my smiles have all slipped away Without them nothing feels right Won’t you lend me your light Just enough to curl my lips tonight This very afternoon… To the clouds I did plead Won’t you stay close to me For in here there’s no shade, no tree And I’m burning without cover With fevers […]

shooting through the sick

I will try to make this brief, because it has the potential to be very long… Starting about 6 years ago, I was sick.  This sick lasted for years.  I started getting chronic sinus infections and accompanying intermittent fevers.  These waves of sick were increasingly taking over my life.  I was sick much more often than I was healthy.  I had never had a sinus infection in my life before moving to Arizona- so it took a long time to […]
