MANIA – VIDEO

Here is another short video I wrapped up this evening. It was a collaborative effort with a friend who recited my poem, Mania – ‘Til the Tide Breaks and the Ocean Falls In.

CENTER

I decided a while back that I would get myself familiarized with iMovie again after a 15 year hiatus. I finally sat down to it tonight. Here is a rough draft of an interpretation of some poetry. I edited the music, audio, voice overs and video. The video is of shadows from trees dancing on…

NIKE – Her Story Repeated

Originally posted on ON THE ROCKS :
I tell ya what. There was one very specific & defining moment in my life and it has replayed over and over. His story repeats itself. Her story creates itself. Both are true for me. 15 years ago, I was in the Louvre, in France, hungover as anyone could…

I AM

This idea of a UNION weighed heavily on my spirit and became a theme in my life that is unraveling still to this day. I suppose it was always there – preying upon me in the shadows and dancing with me in the light – waiting for the day I recognized it in my mirror. Upon recognition and ignition, my…

JUST DON’T DO

That could have been me, it could have been you. Who’s to say if the doers just don’t do?

Da Vinci’s Demons She sat outside the circle where man was stripped of gold. She spun round and round the outskirts of spines that shot through his hold.

GREAT BIG BLUE

Euphoria stings open wounds. It’s not for the faint of heart. It’s a calling and unraveling, until you fall apart. I allow myself to travel these halls and unwind at the seams. All your glory, for which it seems. Trapped in a dream and there’s no turning back. I have one wit left to sail the…

May you find the man who breathes life into your soul, May you find the man who gladly pays the toll. May he unsettle your nerves and break your heart in two, May he show your reflection to shake you through and through. May you react in waves of heat and tremble beneath the weight…

THE GATES OF HELL

When they lay their heads upon their pillows and slip into their dreams, that’s when I allow my mind to wander and unravel at the seams. It’s in the midst of their sedation that I travel near and far. I write you poetry and sing you songs underneath the stars. It isn’t really a mystery anymore…

LIKE FORCES UNITE

Oh the old saying goes – like forces repel and opposites attract. I am not finding that to be the case in the past month, however. I am finding that like forces are finally gelling together into a ‘tribe’ so to speak. A mutual understanding and a willingness to grow, heal, and move forward. It…

THANKS, COKE

Ahh. Thanks for the reminder, Coke. You’re just as bad as Siri. While introducing my mother to Siri one day, she asked me to ask Siri who my boyfriend was. So I did. Siri responded, “I don’t see boyfriends in your contacts.”
