Motoring Adrift

Audio I wonder what you will see, if you close your eyes, and listen to the words by clicking above.   Motoring Adrift After holding back her head and losing all her heart, those echoing beats still blink and swerve. In a hangover of fallen leaves where the grass is no longer green, what will sustain her? Hens with jagged elbows poke, over and over, her soft earthen autumn feathers. Shooed away with a steady stomp and stormy exhale, this […]

Hear Me Now

Hear Me Now Hear me now, I’ll not be silent or still… lonely or left alone. Down a long road, so many years ago… fortune threw me a megaphone. Hear me now, your burden is mine… but I’ll not cry for it on my own. Lights turned low, but I’m louder still… darkness won’t shelter my sound. Up the highest peak, feet swept in sand… fingers pulling the clouds. Lights turned low, the curtains are closed… I’ll not scream but […]

Everything and the Kitchen Sink

Lately, I have been drawn to the light and shadow patterns around my kitchen sink, and well, me being me, I wanted to photograph what I was seeing.  I accumulated enough images over the course of a couple of mornings that I thought it made sense to turn it into a little project.  All of these pictures are taken in my kitchen sink or very close proximity to it.  I used the Hipstamatic app camera for all of these pictures and edited […]

Room 501: Love is a Contiuum

Preface This story is the result of trusting the writing process to unravel and explore some traumatic points in my life, occurring within about a 6 year span as a child.  When I began writing, I had no idea how much would be revealed to me along the way.  The personal struggles I address are shared by many and are very complex.  To write this story in a linear, straightforward way would seem like oversimplification given the swerving and circuitous […]

Adventures in Cuba

          My father sent this letter to me on January 8, 2011.  What a seriously generous offer coming from his big heart!  At the time, I was beyond preoccupied with my 2 and 3 year olds and battling some significant health issues.   I kept the note on my desk and in my free moments, I would read it and just dream about this future trip with my dad. Life continued to be busy and it always […]

Between the Frames, Inside the Tracks

Between the Frames, Inside the Tracks Focused on light-beats between the frames Veiled in vain to disguise she’s still the same, yea though she’s ever changed While self-prescribed tracks are dosed by the singing stereo Echoing the vertigo traps of circular thoughts Warm hands and soft tears never rival robots Inside her there’s no game, just an animal finding the wild She slings her laughing lassos with static smiles, too blue to mock Never holding still for the darkness, looping […]

Mirror, Sylvia Plath

Mirror, by Slyvia Plath “I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions. Whatever I see I swallow immediately Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike. I am not cruel, only truthful- The eye of the little god, four cornered. Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.  It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers. Faces and darkness separate […]

“Little One”

“Night rise Like the evening prize In a turnstile backwards we fly Cold bones Tied together by Black ropes we pulled from a swing Little one Just a little way Today all of the dreams are waking Can’t stand on crooked legs I’m cross-eyed to the wall Will these harbor lights Satellites” -Beck, “Little One” Sea Change

“Down for you is up…”

“If I could make the world as pure And strange as what I see I’d put you in a mirror I’d put in front of me I put in front of me.” -The Velvet Underground
