All the things in life I think I'm missing I sit up past midnight and muse to the darkness, "Are they missing me, too?" But ah, the darkness tells me, "What would you do at nights if you had it all?" Continue reading

the night was made for making things making up making out making love making promises empty like the hollow drum in my chest that starts to beat when you come around making the time stretch to meet the morning light when I find myself laying in your bed cool as... Continue reading

We passed the diner and the last gas sation for miles, just a pattern of weak lights and the vague outline of slow miving people. The road is quiet. The black sky swallows its head and tail, and we travel the long body. Beyond the lights, there is just darkness. Continue reading

You're absolutely right! I followed your link on Twitter straight to your latest post, sorry. I love it again! Your latest posts have been really great. Thanks for always sharing your creations. Your jewelery, stories, photos, recipes, everything, have a recurring theme of beauty meets simplicity. Brava!

The design is good! But I wish the comments section didn't dominate the page so. I liked it when I could just keep scrolling down and see lots of your photos.

Beautiful, as always! Such depth, in plot and characters, in such a short piece!
Toggle Commented Sep 4, 2012 on fiction friday: when we were young at elephantine
My most recent method of turning idle time into something just a bit more constructive: writing stupid and silly haikus. Don't judge harshly, poetry afficianados. This is not refined prose; just trains of thought that I followed for 3 simple lines. Perhaps I will accompany these with photos soon. We... Continue reading

Oh, I love the beginning bit about the lipgloss and the kiss behind the art building. So sweet.

That first picture is lovely. I hope you don't mind if I try to re-create it!

"How can a civilization create when it lives forever and nothing is of value? Things only take value from their evanesence, things are only appreciated because they vanish. How beautiful a summer day is that is only one of a kind; you all have seen such days- one of the... Continue reading

Haha. No UV Filter. I actually did this video just to experiment with Adobe Premier's visual effects, and that "funny green ghosting" is actually the result of two layers of ghost filters. I thought it made for an interesting effect... But now that I've got the program all figured out, it's time for some serious film making. *rolling up sleeves* And yeah. That song is the best thing I've heard in a while. Apparat is really great.

When I first heard this eerie song by Apparat, all that came to mind were images of a flickering fire beneath a dark, but starry sky. Perhaps the pulsating drum beat put me in a, for lack of a better word, "tribal" mood? And then the supermoon arrived days later,... Continue reading
