No Smoking

Eyes on Surprise
AY1, N29

Diamonds are a girl's best friend

Why the art day? One.

‘‘What we are seeing today is extraordinary. Where for centuries humans and elephants lived in relatively peaceful coexistence, there is now hostility and violence. Now, I use the term ‘violence’ because of the intentionality associated with it, both in the aggression of humans and, at times, the recently observed behavior of elephants.’’

But in ‘‘Elephant Breakdown,’’ a 2005 essay in the journal Nature, Bradshaw and several colleagues argued that today’s elephant populations are suffering from a form of chronic stress, a kind of species-wide trauma. Decades of poaching and culling and habitat loss, they claim, have so disrupted the intricate web of familial and societal relations by which young elephants have traditionally been raised in the wild, and by which established elephant herds are governed, that what we are now witnessing is nothing less than a precipitous collapse of elephant culture. -- from the NYT, 10/08/06

Liberation & Resistance: Everywhere I Go

"I'm Gonna Let It Shine"
Matzoh, horseradish & wine on everlasting light & hope
Art Year 1. Night 28ish.

I've missed you. I've longed to feel the click of the keyboard under my fingers, to watch as language, realities are created in immaterial form. I've been disconnected. Unplugged. In a wholly physical reality that does not make room for virtual existence. But I've missed you. I've surprised myself with the longing arising from your absence. Find myself jumping into you as early in the night as is feasibly possible for me. Twilight brought me dragonflies and butterflies. Roses and apparitions. Alas, I feel content to be here. Right here. Right now. In this amorphous, tenuous space.

Process or Product?

Which is more important? Ohhhh, the neverending question.....

Plague No. 8: The Death of the Poets

thoughts upon waking....

so, i've always had this dream to be a mermaid. but not just any mermaid. a magical one, that would be human when i wanted, and mermaid when i was near water and CHOSE to show my fishy self. pretty magical, right?
Anyway, so while looking at mermaid pictures online this morning, i realized that mermaids wouldn't be so beautiful in real life. they are always portrayed as these thin, beautiful white women, with long, luxourius hair, and fair, smooth skin....

In reality, they've been swimmin around in sea water their whole lives. sea water full of fish poop. I imagine, if i came upon a mermaid while walking along the beach at 6am, it would be the scariest thing ever. She would have pale, nearly transparent skin. her hair would be completely tangled around her body, because, ya know, shes been swimming around with it for like 20 years.
she would be tiny, more like gnome sized. her eyes would be huge, and vacant. her nose would be flat, and gill like. or she would have a giant hole on her head/back. her teeth would be jagged. her fingers would be webbed. and she'd probably be so busy ripping into the fleshy part of some crab she just caught, that she wouldn't even notice me.
she wouldnt sing to me, take me on a magical trip to the depths of the ocean to show me her mer-city. no.....
she'd just be gross.

sometimes it's sad growing up and coming to these realizations.

Have a great Sunday, everybody!

On an island in the sea

"Orange is the color of my revolution"
Negritude on infiniphonic vibration.
For Aime Cesaire (rip)
On Poem-in-Your-Pocket-Day
AY1, N28

from Cahier D'un Retour Au Pays Natal (Notebook of a Return to My Native Land):

and here at the end of this daybreak my virile prayer
that I hear neither the laughter nor the screams, my eyes
fixed on this town which I prophesy, beautiful,
grant me the savage faith of the sorcerer
grant my hands the power to mold
grant my soul the sword's temper
I won't flinch. Make my head into a figurehead
and as for me, my heart, do not make me into a father nor a brother
nor a son, but into the father, the brother, the son,
nor a husband, but the lover of this unique people.

--Aime Cesaire (1913-4/17/2008)
image borrowed from

look, if i loved you.....

I feel lighter and lighter each day!

through recognition and reflection, I'm coming to many conclusions.

I feel good about this.

Too much psychology

The DSM-IV-TR, a widely used manual for diagnosing mental disorders, defines Atypical Depression as a subtype of depression or dysthymia, characterized by Atypical Features:

A. Mood reactivity (i.e., mood brightens in response to actual or potential positive events)
B. At least two of the following:
Significant weight gain or increase in appetite ("comfort eating")[3]
Hypersomnia (sleeping too much, as opposed to the insomnia present in melancholic depression)
Leaden paralysis (i.e., heavy, leaden feelings in arms or legs)
Long-standing pattern of interpersonal rejection sensitivity (not limited to episodes of mood disturbance) that results in significant social or occupational impairment
C. Criteria are not met for Melancholic Depression or Catatonic Depression during the same episode.
By the ICD-10 classification, it will fall in the category of F32 or F39.
