Nevermore: Samhain 2016

  Autumn always shows us how absolutely beautiful it is to let things go.    To allow the wounds of the past fade into splashes of spectacular color. To finally let them die and float away in celebration of another year that has come to an end.  For some it is also time to reach up and out to prune off dead branches that hinder future growth. The other branches might have hidden them with new life and extensions around it, but the tree knows better – no need to feed those…

And The Dance Goes On – Fall Mood 2016 [mixtape]

Every single Fall, without fail, my emotions start swirling around like fallen leaves caught in a brisk breeze. There is no rhyme or reason to it all either. It’s almost as if my mind decides to take an emotional dump on my logic and reason – thus bequeathing me with the daunting task of sorting through why I am feeling things I didn’t even care about not even a week ago. This time of year my emotions also like to rip open scars of wounds that (I thought) were healed. As if I didn’t…

Summertime Sadness

Cleaning through my notes once again on my iPhone and iPad…  The following are snippets about love, lust, and relationships I made sure to jot down over the years, as to not lose the thoughts and possibly (someday) use them for writing prompts. I’m not one to let words go to waste, so consider this Meteorites Part II.  The title of this post is courtesy of the Lana Del Rey song, Summertime Sadness, which is very heartfelt and kinda my theme song these days. Also, the playlist that accompanies this post goes…

Morticia

Being a teenager who was into punk and goth in the late 1980’s wasn’t as commonplace as it is today. I was labeled a freak, and being that freak teenager under the roof of my Mom-ster was bravery at its finest. Finding my individuality and voice – and keeping it – was important to me; I did all I could to keep it and most of all, my sanity. My style, as my musical taste, was a menagerie of punk rock, post punk, new wave, dark wave and classic alternative. I loved wearing black…

Gen-X Meets Middle-Age

Gen-X, Blank Generation, Children of the 80’s – whatever you choose to categorize our generation, we are now middle-aged.   Gah! I never thought I’d make it this far, let alone say things like: “back in the day…”, “kids have no respect today!” or “I’m too old for this shit!” I find it quite amusing at times. Sure, some of us have it all figured out and are living comfortably in our 3 bedroom, 2 bath homes in the suburbs, making around $50k+/year with 3.5 children and driving mini-vans or SUV’s to kids soccer…
