I FEEL THE ****EARTH***** MOVE UNDER ME FEET...

LATELY.. I’ve a feeling I see far far into the future. And the future looks bright!
I am blown away at the recognition lately by this site and in my own personal life of art and the selling of it. I feel blessed by my fellow bubblers and I wanna give a SHOUT OUT TO EMI.. EARTH MONSTER AND SHADOW DANCER FOR THIS WONDEROUS INTERVIEW (I must say this piece was edited almost to perfection!) Great Job Patty Jo!

What an incredible magazine! This month it is jam packed with This years EMI AWARDS given out by The Man… Earth Monster also known for his love of Gardening and his ability to uproot your passion!! Shadow Dancer is just plain yummy and was born with a pen in her hand! More juice/tributes about each other can be found in this edition. They even have some yummy recipes for the com

My New Year starts Every Morning...

Gonna lose that 10 pounds
Gonna get my stuff done.. gotta list
Gonna do better by utilizing my time
Gonna………………. aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh…..

It is true, every morning when I wake up I put a smile on my face for one minuet and say..
“Today Could Be The Day”
Today very well could be the day that I find that sweet vibration as the next logical step in getting my book organized. And I will eat so healthy. Today I can start now by feeling no time was ‘lost’ or ‘When I do this thing.. then my life will feel better’
.
RedBubble is such a helpful tool as I use it to get a good feeling going NOW!!
NOT Because of something I should have done or perhaps will do,
but wow right now by looking at my gifts in my

Merry Christmas 11:11 and... 111.1

After being with Niece and family on Christmas eve I was driving home. If I could have closed my eyes I would have. LIke the poem I wrote yesterday called How Is It I felt warm and I felt a presence of arms wrapped around me that made me smile and reminisce once again over my last 2 years since coming to RB and choosing to live again.
.
Right before I was to arrive home I came out from my attention to driving and my reverie and looked at the time, it was 11:11pm and then I looked at my miles in gas… 111.1… omg.. I thought.. it is the Universe supporting my thinking and letting me know how LOVED I am indeed. I was beaming and again I chose to think of people and situations that felt good to think about. My appreciation level was off the charts. I came inside and did my thing for bed, …

Full of Appreciation.. and then some.

Well.. I have been absent and I do feel always kinda out of the loop and sad when I don’t keep up on comments and replies…. I have been working extra jobs on the side (OMG… The physical labor intense kind) and I have been selling my work to happy people. Soon my website will be done and that iS because a client who builds websites liked her boat Tri Lo Li created in my abstracted vision… This is a miracle. This process over the last 2 years is nothing short of a miracle.
You have heard me before but RB and YOU…. helped to create my blossoming life.
Thank YOU!…

OMG.. ONE MORE WEEK!

It will now be one month that I have not had my 143,000 images nor photoshop program nor anything but my sweet little macbook.. which has nothing much inside it except a connection to you and some of the images I recently took and not a filter to be used..
I have not missed my MAC…as I am where I am… However, today after going to pick it up and still more to be done….like one fargen terabite backup.whoo hoo… to be backin up all art and written work..the external hard drive is so complicated for me pea brain they looked at me and said..nawwww bebe…we gonna do it all for you, I have a bit of a longing growing inside me. True, I will also have all my updated Snow Leopard as my running program .Cause I was just Tiger. And never updated in two years, and that feels mighty fine and present!…

Isn't She Lovely...Two Exceptional Women

I had such a lovely visit last night with ‘The Bubble’, I miss the hours I used to spend on line. And I do mean hours. So much has happened because of those hours spent. Life and Art unfolding… becoming more. Recently I’ve met such wonderful people and am having fun. I am also working lots in my craft and workin me body too!

.
There is nothing more satisfying for me like giving thanks to those on this amazing site who have been instrumental in my creative JOY!!!
.
Fran Moore from the day I met her has been such a loving and creative inspiration for me. Her group Solo Exhibition has become a shining lighT for artists to experience a solo exhibition here on RB. And for some it is their first to be SEEN SOLO!!. Also the Ezine she created and is dedicated to BLOWS ME AWAY!!!…

INSIDE SOLO

Over The Hill

IT is 6:30am…. I am almost out the door. I am going ‘Over The Hill’ to a dear friends home who has hired me to help tie up the loose ends around his home. He is an architect and has a crew of movie makers coming up to shoot his creation. He took what was once a rail box car and 2 horse stables and created a gorgeous home using the box car as part of the structure and the wood from the stables have been recycled into the structure.
Speaking of horses, he is working me like one! The scene is in Half Moon Bay, the place I used to live before I came ‘over the hill’ here to Redwood City. We call the journey over the hilll because one passes though major hill area before arriving on the other side.
And so I have pretty much worked from sun up to well past sun down and will be doing so fo…

Reflecting on Love this Day

I am at work and part of me has such a difficult time with the idea of war. Both my mother and father were Marines in WW2. and I had utmost respect for their service. Neither my brother nor I had any inclination to join a military service.
.
Part of me begs that I get into the frey and push against this machine that indeed employs so many Americans from service itself to the making of the war machines. My fear runs like this. If they ever really got a cure for cancer absolutely, what would happen to all the jobs that are involved in ‘fighting cancer’ like we are talking millions of jobs throughout the world. That is my fear side.
.
War seems to be a part of our contrast and where we are now in our evolution. I do honor those who are in the military as I do believe they are following…

While We Were Talking

My niece Alanna and I had one of the best conversations last night. She is wise and beautiful beyond what I experienced as a woman about to turn 21. I have seen her understand and employ principles of life that for me are only right now just coming into view almost naturally as if she was indeed born a woman knowing ‘Who She Really Is’.
This thrills me and for whatever reason last night the Universe deemed fit, we exchanged stories on the parts of our lives that gave us both the most contrast with our parents. I did not know how similar her life was to mine in ways that she did not suffer the ‘kind’ of abuse I did, never the less me with my father and she with her mother we found we shared some most ‘unfit’ moments and then we both shared the view that all of this has indeed lead up to w…

A book of Thanks

I been gone a bit and I have embraced more that ‘’the world is my oyster’ feeling.
Just a day ago a woman who saw my work invited me to her show in a place that is so expansive and amazing (an old propeller factory redesigned as a studio/gallery) She was looking at my work and telling me I need to bring it to the Gallery and show it as the man who owns it she was sure will love my work. I was quite happy and will do so soon. I got word that I will be financed again for equipment and expansion for my next show from the person that financed this show.
.
I have been told when I talk about my work It is like I am talking about a lover, and well I am. This is my message to you when you take your art to show. Feel the love you put into each and every image, painting, verse. It translates vi…

I solved a big big .. not so much problem but a piece of the puzzle for my show that seemed undoable..
Funny when you ask others how utterly loving and helpful they can be..
I have ‘time’ for the first ‘time’! and although I need to go to work for a bit.. I am chomping at the ‘bit’ to see what I have missed.. am uploading and then work and then…………….yum yum yum.. YOU!!

Oh what is waiting for me?
gifts of unknown smiles
and hearts laced with acid!
(why does this delight me? teehee)
Wonder and delight I shall feel once more
and thus..
Will strip my pessimism and shed light
on my quandary that is living here
I am lusting after dark and shining
bright toward my future
words, images, your hopes and dreams
fuel my own.

Love You,
Linaji

Blow Up Lab is blowin My Mind.

I feel lucky and want to share a bit of how my show is coming round.
Blow Up Lab out of San Francisco is working and educating me in my product and my vision.
The McGrath’s husband and wife team Carol and Frank, personally tipped the scales in my favor for success. More about the show later and the marketing I am creating.
This piece Sun Point Sailing will be on canvas printed 30X40 and is sold already. I have 4 pieces sold and boy this helps in allowing myself to really go for the larger pieces.…

SUN POINT SAILING PRINTED ON CANVAS 30X40

Today I need to organize my head.. the printing will be finished this friday.
The show is on Oct. 23rd.. I expect over 100 people. More later but I do believe it is so important to see my work as Art and treat it thusly…. I feel my work is happy on t

Woke Up From A Dream

I had so many dreams last night I think if there was a department like one for ‘fire’ to call I would have. All the dreams where about what I had to do to prepare for the days ahead and there was so much that it almost felt uncomfortably real.
.
Later today I will post my thank yous to all the amazing groups for hosting and choosing my work to feature in their group and perhaps then too I can get to hosting myself. But I feel like this is the first time I am going to have to say I won’t be around the Bubble for a while. I already feel behind with your work and the blog just cannot be done for another month.
Until this show is done I have to say my dedication to RB and your work will lessen for a few more weeks. I am excited but the stress of those dreams were about how I wanted to do…

Been Cookin..

I have had a tough week in the world of my mind. I am doing so much towards my art show, I saw the printer on Friday and a bit yesterday before I left. I am excited.. but life with leaning comes moments of running into myslef face to face as others perceive me and sometimes that hurts even if it is a group of people who you think your just a shining light around.
(ok hint I had a review of me at work.. all good good stuff except this one thing and I swear I have created a 4 eye monster out of this one fargen thing)
.
I shall write on this later this week as I am still working on getting to the feeling place of allowing. I hold a feeling of hurt and resentment now. But I am aware of this and I am not trying to push away anything, rather I am doing other things that make me happy with the …

ATTRACTING BILLIONS..

Yesterday I met my first Multi-Billionaire.. he was so nice!! I went out sailing and my Captain John was there and we all had so much fun. It was my last shoot out and I was determined to go.. I don’t know I felt it in my bones that I must go out.. the wind was incredible..and the shots I lost a while ago (250) are partially made up.. I was squealing.. it was so much fun.
.
The reason I mention the money and this man is I felt yesterday.. I gotta stop worrying about the damn government TAKING FROM ME.. It’s just as Jesus says.. GIVE UNTO CAESAR.. WHAT IS CAESARS…
.(Does not mean I don’t write my congress and senete.. and president)
.
I want to see and feel my life as bountiful not limiting. And I decided yesterday I wanted to feel more wealthy. I got out my yellow legal pad and started to …

Or So he thought...

HE WAS HIDING……

Off in the Canary Islands. He thought: “here I am
I shall not be found. I shall recreate my burning
Ego. I will become a peasant to my day, and overturn
Rocks of knowledge for consumption. I shall meditate
On the women I dropped my A-Bomb smile on
but then turned around and
Left them shell shocked and broken.
I will find some peace”

Or So he thought.

At this point in his life he believes he has the power over others. But he does not. What he feels is his own metronome his own affection for feeling good or not. He was almost a star after all and he failed himself miserably.

Or So he thought.
.
“Now” he believed, “I shall only allude to my ‘Once Was’ state of affairs and be a great mystery to all that meet me!”

(hummm what about that burning of the ego?)

And he got off the boat.

CB misses his FAMILY.. THATS RIGHT.. YOU!!

HERE IS THE LINK TO HIS WORK

I just got a wonderful reply on a comment I left a fellow RBer who also is a poet..
He had to go from RB for quite sometime and had a awesome following from what he called ‘family’ here at RB…yep we can relate!!
.
he wrote me
…dearly and sincerely from i colorblind ….. and i hope that my family comes back …lol i feel abandon …smilez ….but its nice to see family like you still hangs by my side ….thank you linaji i’m glad to have you inside my heart and beside me….sincerely daz
.
sometimes we get so much with all our watchlist.. when someone goes out the loop it takes a bit to get back.. I just could feel him tonight and thought you who used to read his work and he is a great artist too, might want to know.. and those who have never CHECK IT OUT!! XXX

Much Love,

FEELING FREE.

It is odd for me. I love truth.. biting EXPLICITE truth. I long to hear someone say to me.. you know LInaji.. I loved you yesterday.. but today.. I just don’t give a fig about you.
.
do you know why? Because my mind cannot wrap any bullshit around someones truth. The vibration that we feel when someone lies to us and hey we already know the truth; is what for me feels painful.. I call it mixed vibes.. I have to fill in a story for the one that doesn’t match (the one i feel so strong) with what you are telling me.
.
Yes pain. Yes fear realized.. but for me this passes so quickly so fast cause the vibration of what I know to be true and the verbal voice match.
.
Your truth about me is not who I am. Only I can decide that by what I hold onto in reference to how I see me. And here is ano…

THIS IS A MIND BOGGLE..

I was just about to close down RB.. when I saw a thumnail of what I knew to be Moon Spirals work.. she is amazing at her craft and at creating the Hindu Goddesses she Rules. Well I opened it up and saw she drew Kali ji.. she is my hero. Let me say that I did not see a side bar yet ..So I went to making a comment telling her that I love this and she must add to Vavoom and that this is amazing cause in the Mountains of India some of the Tibetan Nuns would call me Kali ji.. And I loved it!!
.
Kali is a Goddess that destroys the false precepts of time space reality so that the NEW LIFE CAN BE BUILT AGAIN!! She eats demons for lunch!! more later..

.
What is a trip is I faved it and went back out and there I am in her side bar.. she choose to DRAW ME AS KALI!! HOW CONNECTED WE ARE!!
I AM IN HE…

This ENTIRE MONRING.. ROCKED!

When I sat down today to work on the blog’ for Vavoom I did not know that I would be visiting the Paris of my dreams nor reach for Outer Space.. but that is exactly what happened.. no kidding.. my last two images reflect that fact.. Paris..dream..reality..dream and my dedication to my bro Shoaib for all the artistic influence he has had in my life here at RB.. THE IMAGE .. SHOAIBS SPATIAL HEART

Ok.. here are the sounds around me as I write with the window open but the blinds are closed so I can see my screen.
.
I live by the water and there are boats.. there is the dock and the harbor master’s offices and there is an Eating Estb. and there are offices behind me.
.
The sounds are mowing lawns and somtimes the cars going in and out
.
I hear the gulls squaking and the barking of dogs on walks. I hear human voices and I hear the sound of a plane flying overhead too.
.
But I will tell you .. Today. I felt lost. I felt a desire to know I exist. I asked the Universe to send me love, the kind I felt the day before yesterday when I feel so connected to everything and everyone. This feeling is so powerful and yet so gentle.. it is a constant stream of consciousness that feels like home and pea…

Kept Meaning to...

I have meant to journal this as I am so impressed and have much appreciation for the Law of Attraction which for me, is Universal law..that zoomed me over this beguiling and brilliant Photographer and friend!
.
It starts out like this.. we admire each others work and he says to me. Linaji.. shoot over a poem and I will find an image that goes with the work..
.
So I go searching and find this piece that I love and say to me.. “Hey this is back too far I forgot how much I love this one!!” I send it to him and I’ll be darn. It is so perfect it is as if I made it for the image.
.
So It is with great pleasure i say WOW! In public and thanks so much dear friend……

here is the link to the shot and the poem

It is the words over his self portrait and the ending in the poem that really blew my socks off

buzzz Fill you Ears.. To Writers..

This afternoon I had yet another wonderful opportunity to read a fellow writers works. I admire her to the core of my heart and her work is something I learn from every day. Lisa G’s piece called She Told Me So had all my senses aroused.…

I enjoyed it thoroughly….

I am looking tenderly to improve my writing.. I need more info.. what to look for and devices to get me jump started…

Funny but after reading her work and thinking on how well it was written.. she is my Queen of prose here on RB, I picked up a book I like on writing by
Gail Sher called The Intuitive Writer

I opened it to the very thing I was pondering this morning and I wanted to share with all of you..

From the chapter.. ‘The sound of Sense’

Tenderness.. we are all looking for a way to relief.

A friend reminded me of this piece today..
you can replace the He with the She.. it is the same..
I wanted to share how I am feeling today..…

Tenderness

I broke down a man to his tenderness.
His curious beliefs are suspended as he forges the
Twinkling behind the twinkle
The soul behind the suss.
I had tried to figure out

He was lost in a passion of disbelief

Now;

Allowing

Discovering

There is nothing to catch up on
Nothing lost in 25 years except stories
Like mine,

Divine,

Or Not,

Mine,
Just another set of 25 years that seemed to have had
Some of what He thought he wanted,
But now has

NOW

Complete package
Delivered to him at the stroke of midnight
Everything!
All in a smile really,
Juicy and un-contrived and un-holy
Because it is the essence of that which

He-IS

Shining forth,

It is all of him that is c

OK.. HERE IS THE 11:11 SCOOPE.. SORRY MAGIC ONCE AGAIN!!!

This Friday I get a call at 11:11am.. “I want Your Art”. Now I mention the time cause I have been talking with the Universe and saying..…

“Ya know I know it is time, It is time I sell my work and I would like you to show me your behind my request and that you will lead me on, I am open and confident that I have something special in all that I create.. cause I am a Creator.. and that is my job!”

2 days later after last conversation above… I get the call. What is interesting for me is that I choose 111 or 11 11 to be the code I receive from the Universe that this is an answer with a committed Sign that I am being heard right on time and loved and given all that I desire. When I am in the car and I have a heavy duty epiphany I will see most often the car speedometer has 111 or even a super

Climb every mountain...

Mountain Climbing Tale is a tale about Love and Hope and then the feeling that there is no hope. but you know even if it ends seeming that the hard core Love Climber is in a sick bed and telling this hopeless story.. you know in your heart IT AIN’T OVER TILL IT’S OVER.

SO THANKS A HUGE BUNCHES OF LOVE TO A FIRST FOR ME TOO BEING FEATURED IN THE GROUP…

Righrt Before My Shower....

I was just about to jump up and shower when I stopped myself from moving an inch as warmth pervaded my body. It was just as I was going to sign off for the day. It was that feeling I get sometimes when I can’t at all decide to cry for the complexity that these feelings gives me or to lay my head back in my hands and breath deep. Sometimes the crying seems to give me more of a dramatic ummph; It is like I picture the bliss of one at the wailing wall in Israel crying to The God How blessed One feels in the presence of this mystery. Then there is the Guru stance (laying my head back in my hands and breathing in deep) of sucking it all inside and reveling in thought on the nature of not understanding a fargen thing!
That’s how I feel right now; a touch of mystery ahead that gives me chills …

C.O.R.E. to the Bone

Wow it is time to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!

THIS group I love. Why? YES this was the first group to recognize my work and feature my series Elevator Instructions…How To Live In their first Artist Showcase!! Now that for me was a complete HONOR! I was also blessed to have many of my Americans Part ! featured in their Obama Stuff showcase.

Core and the Hosts really gave me some confidence and recognition I have never had before and since then I believe because of this amazing feeling I got from them and all of you at that point, I have been expanding and finding so much satisfaction in my work. But even more I must tell you that the Hosts of C.O.R.E. taught me how to be a better host in my groups and to have FUN AND how it is I could expose more artists and lend that good feeling one gets

I will not ask again for at least 3 months.. help

I have arranged my first page on my homepage as a way for you to please pick out 3 pics that have to do with sailing and 3 of any other you fancy..
I know time is of the essence so just number them..…

What A Good Sleep Will Do

I have a confession.. I used to fall asleep with my laptop on my belly sometimes.. with some inane News program on.. (Not you Keith Oberman nor you Rache Maddowl … ) or a series I get for free on NBC or ABC..
.
I went to my Mac Store to fix my Iphone and asked the Genius.. Why does my laptop battery get so hot? He says.. “do you have your computer in your sheets?” (wow my sheets did he say, not bed nor blanket..did he say sheets and how the hell did he know that is exactly where my lap top is if not on my belly ..?) “Well yes” I said “infact I do.” He told me that is a big no no. Flat surface for sure miss that is what you need he told me, and so I intended that evening to get a breakfast like tray or something to put it on, but I thought tomorrow, tomorrow I will find just the right t…

you all

my heart is full of your love.. I can’t answer each one… I am still in a panic.. but I want you to know how much all this love you are expressing is doing for my brain and heart.. I am letting go.. more and more I am letting go..
.
I know there will be other opportunities.. and for some reason this is making me more determined to find a way to read my work.. I am not going to give up nor am I going to back down.
.
Perhaps It is my old self that is a bit in charge of finding a way to hault all my flying free.. My story has been where I was so stuck in my home with all that I was.. Now.. I am feeling more like I am attracting with my soul to fly.. I know that I can.. and will ..
The Universe has a way of letting me know what I don’t want so I can embrace fully what I do want..

I am heartbroken

I was invited to read my poetry today in an annual poetry celebration up in Mendicino Calif ..a almost 4 hour drive from where I live..
I was packing my car and my backpack which has all my poems printed out in readable font size and my credit card money sunglasses ect was in the home.. well.. I went back to get that and be 15 min ahead of scheld ..and my fucking lock will not unlock!!!!
I am in tears.. and I have called the person responsible for my place and he is coming thinking he can open it.. I have prayed and conjoled and begged and kicked and screamed and almost begged the lock to unlock.. but no it will not.. shit.. shit.. I am so in tears .. what complete utter shit ..
So you guys.. this is the first time I really was standing behind my work… am I missing something.. ? What on ear…

Gone Fishen

Am going up up up about 8600ft to work with my friend Brian on a home. We worked many jobs together when I was in Interior Design.. He is a taskmaster but he is in so many things.. for some reason though we can really be in sync while working.
This place we are working on has no wireless so I cannot use internet at all and will not be able to accesss you all…ahhhhhhhh…
.
I will be back Tuesday and then my work week begins at home..
Saving to go back east in October.. New York and perhaps I may even go back in July as my friend may fly me out. I love the East Coast.. all you buddies on the Coast.. We will have our meeting!!
.
Anyway.. I shall miss you all .. with love,

BY HAFIZ... ON 'THE QUINTESSENCE OF LONELINESS

I am like a herion addict
In my longing for a sublime state,
For that ground of Conscious Nothing

Where the Rose ever
Blooms.
O, the Friend
has done me a great favor
And has so thoroughly ruined my life,
What else would you expect
Seeing God would do!

Out of the ashes of this broken frame
There is a noble rising son pining for death,
Because,
Since we first met,
Beloved,’
I have become a foreigner
To every world
Except that one
In which there is only You
Or-Me.

Now that the heart has held
That which can never be touched
My subsistence is a blessed
Desolation
And from that I cry for more Loneliness.

I am so lonely, dear Beloved,
For the quintessence of
Loneliness,
For what is more alone than God?
Hafiz,
What is more pure and alone,
Magnificently Sovereign,
Than God.

Just feelin Hafiz.. what a poet!!

Let There Be Appreciation

This is an interesting Life. I was taken back to a time this week that I barely remember. The first time I almost died. It is a story of a girl 16 just and who was in deep waters in the guts of Oakland California. I was hanging out with people in their 20’s and I had a gal pal who was as enamored with a big fat line of white powder as I was. I was holding for these well, gangsters and my girlfriend was stealing behind my back. the main guy thought I was stealing but I wasn’t. He was mad and wanted to kill me with an overdose of drugs.
Needless to say I am here. But as I look back on that moment of death when all my body fluids where escaping me and I saw the world spin before me and I heard a voice say.. Ok.. Kiddo.. this is it either you let go and go.. or you stay,.. Well I am he…

Sally, Jesus and Me.

It has been quite a ride in the last few days. I have produced more art and words from the heart and soul as has been done in a long time. I think that perhaps people may wonder what my rant was about in the piece…
A letter of Holy Communication to the Holy Trinity and I owe you somewhat of an explanation only because I am usually so dang happy.
I work on the premise that all feelings are valid on a conscious level. I feel when I am aware of my feelings I can allow myself to go though what I call an emotional guidance scale and not stay stuck at any given point just so long as I stay conscious of how long being at any certain point seems to bring some relief.
.…

I know that my life is not dependent on how others live theirs. I know this to my Core. However, my choices sometimes are not i

Football and Saturdays.

“Charlie Brrrrrrowwwwwn
Pleeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzeee
Come on.
I think it’s a great idea.
I’ll hold the football like this..
And you come running up and kick it”.…

“Ha!” Charlie Brown says,
“I wouldn’t try that for a million dollars.
You won’t hold it. You’ll pull it Awahhh and I’ll
Kill myself”.

“WAAAHHHH YOU DON’T TRUST ME!!”
Lucy whines and cries…
“You think I’m no good, You have no Faith in me”.

“Oh Don’t cry Lucy
I apologize
I’m sorry
Please don’t cry
You hold the ball and I’ll come running up and kick it”..

“Sniff sniff”… Lucy goes to get the ball.

And then.

Well it happens every time…

WHOOSH (football is pulled up as Charlie Brown goes to kick it)

AAAUGHHHHHH

AND

WUMP… FLAT ON BACK

Been a Week To Remember...

Sailing through life and feeling my heart open daily .. I have been working lots too. Today is the first day i feel I can sit and look at you, My Co-Creators Creations.
Lots of work this week and a bit of photography and PS3, lots of love from you which has been so wonderful and appreciated. I am happy. This perhaps is the biggest gift I have ever experienced. Art, RB, and a feeling of appreciation I have never felt before, that includes my relationship with you, makes this last year on this site and in the world at large a sign a new beginning that the rest of my life is like sailing on the water….when the wind blows, wow the ride is fantastic, when there is no wind, if I allow myself to just Be…and as I found out this week, what a ride that can be too!!…

Thank you Thank you for all y

NEW ADDITION..

FERVENT
BY TERILEE

Tonight I am hungry
Last night I rested
Tomorrow I will heal
But for tonight
I am starving
Not for subtle gestures
Or a gentle touch
I want you to be famished too
Hunt me
Feed from my nectar
And I will swallow
Your hunger too
Come with me
On this obsessive journey
Fly with me into the night
Penetrate my consciousness
I will consume your spirit
Together we will take flight
Blast through the threshold
Explode
Into infinity
Because
Tonight I am hungry
I want you to be hungry too!

An Idea..

I have been thinking about this for a long time….
Jessie Leavitt is a young student whom I just adore and has been on this site for quite sometime. She has been progressing here on line as an artist in photography.
.
When I first got here I upgraded my camera and I knew of someone here who I felt deserved my old camera and I sent it to that person. I remember how pleased we both were.
.
Jessies camera broke and If I had one to give her I would, I know she works at a pizza place and they cut her hours so the adults who needed hours could benefit. I am just wondering.. does anyone have a camera laying around that is digital ..point n shoot that they would be willing to part with?
.
Can you bubblemail me if you are interested in this request?
Just been wanting to journal this for a while..

AFTER WORK COCKTAIL...

AHHHHH … My morning was so busy and wonderful really. I switched on MSNBC and heard all about the swine flu spreading thoughout the planet..
.
I heard a congress woman diss a young gay departed soul in front of his mother as they are trying to pass a hate crime bill, SHE CALLED.. the entire incident a ‘hoax’
.
And I thought to myself.. really one must be so beyond/detached from feelings to allow themselves in public to say such utter nonsense.
.
And then I thought better get to being in APPRECIATION before I go into a bit of a downward spiral..
.
Turn off the news and come to the Bubble My family.. so here is my appreciation for the fine Groups and the Hosts that allow my work to be part of the features alongside others…

Friendship saves the Day...

I been here for awhile now and I have to say that I have never experienced so much growth in what it feels like to maintain a friendship.…

Most of my life I have been a gypsy. Moving within a 2 year period in the U.S. or making sure I had seasonal work so I could see America. I have lived in places like Alaska and had some of the most amazing experiences of my life.
As you know I lived in India off and on for 6 years too. Now that was gypsy life at it’s finest!!

I have met people who have known friends since 3rd grade. I barely remember where I was in the 3rd grade let alone who I was going to school with. Besides… Grade School though High School terrified me. People were unreliable, and would turn on you in a minute, I was sure, so I never got close and I did alot of walking by the oc

HEART SICK ABOUT MY COUNTRY

JUST IN LAST NIGHT.. I AM SICK OVER THE DECEPTION… I DO BELIEVE THIS LIFE IS FOLLY BUT WHILE I AM IN IT ,…. IT IS HARD TO ALLOW ALLOW ALLOW.. WHEN I SEE THE LIES ……

“President Obama promised the American people a new era of transparency, accountability, and respect for civil liberties,” said EFF Senior Staff Attorney Kevin Bankston. But with the Obama Justice Department continuing the Bush administration’s cover-up of the National Security Agency’s dragnet surveillance of millions of Americans, and insisting that the much-publicized warrantless wiretapping program is still a ‘secret’ that cannot be reviewed by the courts, it feels like deja vu all over again.

THIS FEELS LIKE FASCISM:a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race abov

THE FEELING OF JOY SAVES THE DAY....

GOOD GOD..
I allowed myself to see a documentery called “The Union: The Business Behind Getting High (2007)” and what a doozy.. It never ceases to amaze me how the stupidity of our far right thinking gets us. We spent more money on arresting and finding growers of marijuana and building jail after jail to house the arrest of these growers and distributors than we do on all the heroin, crack cocaine, meth labs ect all the hard drugs participants combine!!…

Did you know before 1930’s Hemp was forseen back then as a billion dollar industry!! BACK THEN.. billions of dollars is like now trillions..Holy Cow.. will we ever get out from under our own stupidity and become ENLIGHTENED!!

Just for a minuet I find peace in my week and in the mood for allowing for all that is in the contrast of life… a

DESTINY IS IN THE CARDS TODAY

I was broadsided yesterday..
But guess what? that was Yesterday.
Today I feel the presence of my Destiny near,
I can’t quite hear it loud nor touch it true.
But I feel it none the less and I am soothed.…

Here is one of my favorite songs and video’s
The Group Zero 7 and the lyrics below..I think I listen to this song fricken
5 times a day.. like I did this in High School.. I over listened to fav songs and for a few years never got tired of them.. Back in Black is one of those.

DESTINY BY ZERO 7

HERE ARE THE LYRICS… DESTINY

I lie awake
I’ve gone to ground
I’m watching porn
In my hotel dressing gown
Now I dream of you
But I still believe
There’s only enough for one in this
Lonely hotel suite

The journey’s long
And it feels so bad
I’m thinking back to the last day we had.
Old moon fades into the new
Soon I kn

Broadside

I just felt a meaness creep in.. and I did not expect it today.. How can it happen?
You are having a wonderful day and then bam.. someone out of your past comes in and says a shitty thing.. and personally it is hard to take responsibility for everything and everyone.. but I like to try.. but first .. the best feeling for me is revenge.. tee hee.. hence the poem.. and in the end.. it is still me and my attitude.. ..that is the only fixible thing I own……

BROADSIDE

What’s it like to go about your day?
Feeling light and free
And coming across energy,
Not so nice and spiteful as hell

An energy that brings out a way
You would like to tell,
Them to stuff it
Shove it and take it to the river,

I’d say that when I feel this meanness
I like to cut out their liver,
Of their snide ness and the cruelty
Living i

Co lab...

I did not have permission from the artist when I posted the last poem submitted HEARTFELT until late and I wanted those who read the poem to understand where my inspiration came from.…

Paul Vanzella
has a stunning piece by same name called HEARTFELT

It is like my heart never stays inside with you
I am a chart with numbers and points of interest
To view
Is that enough?

I have to get though
All the before and hereafters,
To find out that
We are flesh you and I,
Weak from sad songs and convictions
Outdated
Some promises made at the tender age of eight!
Convinced, coerced, cajoled
That we shall never have it all,
That we shall never feel the promise
Till the end,
… This moment brings,
… This feeling sings.

Exposed and truth
And feeling the precipice
Of need
Then desire giving way to a current
Of Love
Naked
Born

Waking up on the Right side..

Even in my dreams
I have attracted a liberating
Stance,
Unfettered by my words or yours
By the televisions call to arms
‘the world is no good’
So you aren’t either!…

No today I woke to find my dreams
Have invaded my reality
I have come back with a knapsack
Full of promise and hope and again
I will rise
I will smile in the knowing
I will embrace all that I am
As I know from dreamtime
I am that I am..
Source Energy … the connection to
The most of me not seen,
Is greater than all my Befores.
And allows me to see that all my Afters
Are up to me and my thoughts..
So what will I do today?
I Remember that
Nothing is more important
Than that I feel Good.
And in feeling Good
I will be all that I truly am
Happy Joyous and Free
Allowing the River of Well Being
to sweep me off my feet!
How fun is that!

Good Morning All.
xoxo

My Fingers are pleased.. very!

my fingers that relay the messages from my head to my keyboard are dancing this morning!!!

Going through that 'RB thingy'

I am discovering that my watchlist is once again doing weird things.. no ..not doing anything..
I am not getting notices of your work.. so if you have been on my list for ever.. and you see me reupping you on the watchlist.. you know why..
It really breaks my heart ..and so when I see you come to my work and I think hey.. what are they doing.. and I go and see HELLA LOT!! I am mortified!

I wish to send out a vibration as I close my eyes now.. (i can type with my eyes closed!! tee hee) to all of you who gave me such Love and Kindness in my time of well.. there is that word again… NEED. I really felt like you gave me a kindness and love that one gives a dear friend in times when they are down for the count. hummmm DEEP APPRECIATION AND THANKS

I have not been able to catch up with my replies nor my views into your works this week can you forgive me? I shall catch up tomorrow as best as I can but I read each and every comment and savored them and loved them and feel have been made more whole by them.

THE SISTERHOOD ROCKS..

SALLY OMAR IS A GENIUS AND A SISTER TRUE.. SHE STARTED WITH AN IDEA AND ASKED ME TO JOIN IN.. I AM HONORED TO BE PART OF HER VISION AND I WOULD LIKE TO INVITE WOMEN WHO WANT TO SHARE… WELL, SALLY SAYS IT SO ELOQUENTLY IN HER AMAZING POEM..…

THE SISTERHOOD
By: Sally Omar

we are many races
have different faces
are single, married, divorced
what we are is our own choice
may live in luxury or not
perhaps dress very plain…or hot
were raised in different countries
are women and deserve to be free
THE SISTERHOOD

we have common goals
some of us young…some old
like to discuss issues with friends
do not always follow trends
wish the world were a better place
dress in cotton or in lace
we are women strong and bold
will be this way till we grow old
THE SISTERHOOD

we won’t be silenced..hear our voice
eventually you’ll

TO THE CORE OF ME.. A FIRST AND A DEEP HEARTFELT APPRECIATION

Much is On today..
I am working later but have had some things….
Last night I opened a mail
and it took me here
I cannot really express how I felt nor feel as I have never had anything like this happen before in my life.
I am humbled deeply and I am sharing this with you all because one year ago I did not know who I was.
It is through YOU.. MY CO-CREATORS.. that I have found the ONeness of my work and my never ending supply of inspiration.
I am indebted more than I can say to this path here with YOU and with Me.

Thanks so much S. THE YELLOW FURY..
Thanks so much Ushna

I want to hug you real bad in REAL FLESH LIFE AND I WANT YOU TO FEEL MY JOY. UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL… XOXOXO

OBAMA INAUGUATION SERIES .... THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE

This series means alot to me on many levels.. It REMINDS ME.. what I am good at with the camera.. I really love photojournalism… events and me and capturing the essence of that day, moment, time and place are what I love to shoot.…

My best work has not been so much for weddings nor for personal hire nor flowers or buildings or minimal shots of which I so admire all these venues. My best work is when I am so excited about what I am seeing that it translates into the medium of photo taking. I can’t help it I love people..and most of them never know I am taking their picture.. when they are aware, sometimes electricity is exchanged in good keeping as I try to portray these moments with the best possible art in my heART.

I feel a great honor to have been so recognized by the group C.O.R.E.

Thank You!!!!

The minuet I took this shot My Heart.. heART Soared.. I did not even check out the view box.. it was electric. I have that happen sometimes when I shoot.. It is a phenomenal feeling.. like you are connecting to that subject…person, place, thing, animal… LIFE.. so profoundly. I actually said to myself.. Holy Shit.. that’s the ONe!!…

So I am honored C.O.R.E.
and the Group Spirit saw fit to provide a feature slot for this shot!

Don’t Read This

What came to me was so much Love and Friendship that I can truly say Red Bubble is no addiction.. it is a part of my road and my journey… Like I never had a big family nor did I ever take chances on friends.. I was small and felt like I had to shout my way through the mire of what I thought to be a pretty unfair life.

Seems I got here just as the jury came in NOT GUILTY.. I WAS FREE BY THE TIME I FIRST POSTED MY FIRST SHOT IN INDIA….

Then there was the writing and the writing.. and I feLl in love here and had a muse for awhile and then more miracles happened and I began to embra

A TASTE FOR CONTRAST?..LUKE DOWNES..HALF DRUNK POET. (he said that)

I HAVE FOLLOWED THIS FELLOW FOR QUITE SOME TIME.. HE WAS OFF THE BUBBLE FOR A MOMENT.. HE HAS BEEN BACK FOR AWHILE AND I JUST VISITED HIS WORK..
You can’t beat it.. his words and his ideas are pure unadulterated bliss.. true poets heart.. seems like he is always in LOVE PAIN.. AND LOVES THAT TOO cause the writing is superb…. and of course he truly is a classic writer.. I could take lessons from his command of poetic structure.. his characterization always thrills me his use of figurative language.. mind boggle..

I just want you to experience some of this mans work.. it is lush!
