Hotel Vendome

Still at home, I’m still home But I should have known I should have known That I didn’t know…   The room is waiting It’s dark illuminating My visions are hanging Hanging on my bones On my bones…   Time is a turning key Staying and leaving In room seventeen Will I sleep? Will I sleep?   One, two, a million-and-three My mind becomes the black sea My legs tied to the queen Tied to the king Untied to the […]

dog days

For this blog, I’m switching gears a bit to dog and puppy pictures and a straightforward account of some events as of late.  Maybe it’s boring and self-indulgent, but it’s also cathartic.  So… I am giving myself some space to let it out here. Be it the ramblings of an exhausted, slightly delirious mama, then so be it. I have had additional time lately to dedicate to my photography and writing blogs.  Due to yet more illness (we are not […]

Unslept

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 […]

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 […]

unnumb

Grown outside the mind Love will do just fine My heart will skid and forgive My eyes open under their lids For I’m not sinking or sleeping But I am laughing and weeping In blue-yellow shades of time Love will do just fine

Night Moves in Blue

It had been too long since I had taken my self-portraiture medicine.  I was starting to get twitchy-twitchy (yes, doubly twitchy).  I have been unable make space during the daylight hours to accomplish self-portraits as of late- a temporary issue, but one I needed to work around.  In order to make this series of photographs, I had to break from my reliance on the sunshine.  I drew from a completely different light source, a “no signal” blue light from a […]
