Another subconsciously aware sleepless night; at least once a week. Walking feet coming up behind me, both dreaming vividly Proposed, to commit suicide over a crime with two other guys sitting bitch-seat of a convertible, approaching an elevator… to shoot up. To eliminate ourselves I bail at the last minute. There is time. With a cash-wad, folded over Bent to go in hiding. So many heavy themes in this ONE, no sense denying him. Now religious fasting Two concepts bide, law of attraction vastness open inside of me, opens void to keep filling The atheist finds their vacuum, and the scientist beaker is starving Kiss me this, a chin turns sideways In life where we spend our time and with … Read More

The wild White Nun, rarest and loveliest of all her kind, takes form in the green shade deep in the forest. Streams of filtered light are tapped, distilled, and lavishly expressed as petals.

In a compulsive desire to absorb as much as I can, I always stack my reading: magazines and books of varying degree and topic. Its easier to read a narrative and a non-fiction simultaneously as the themes never seem to over-lap. This past month proved a different fate. I found myself engrossed with one omnivore frenchman, a conscientious omnivore, a “frenchie” baker, and an alternative baker. The fast and delightful read was David Lebovitz’s “The Sweet Life in Paris.” I have taken his item-specific classes when he passed through Dallas on occasion, (i.e chocolate series and ice cream making) so i was excited to get ahold of a more personal scoop on the man. He is very whimsical with ideas … Read More
