Chemical ImbalanceI'm not sure I know what to say,More Like This
And I can't find the words to take it away.
I'm lost within my every thought,
Impulses, and chemicals, all shot.
Trying to find a remedy: a cure,
To return to a mindset that once was pure.
I'm lost within the misery,
Bereft of pleasant memory,
Enslaved to my own anxiety,
All that's left: insanity.
EllipticalHe talks to CometsMore Like This
tells them Secrets and Tales
they listen with rapt attention
sometimes crashing and burning
sometimes passing innocuously
through the Universe
Sometimes, the Comets tell their own tales
streaking tails of tales across the night sky
passing sleeping cities, flying over pastures
we watch with rapt attention
sometimes crashing, sometimes burning
but never innocuously
We wish, we hope, we dream
of catching Comets in a jar,
keeping them like wildflower jam
and spreading them on brainy toast
and savoring every Cosmic bite
But, He talks to Comets
tells them they belong among the stars
to sail away and find a new lover
Far away and return when they feel free

A conversation and one or two attempts at a poem
Voice one: If God exists what do you suppose he does with his time?
Voice two: God, if he or she or it exists, is an artist and will be off somewhere creating other universes.
Voice one: I suppose that must be true otherwise he would be getting a bit bored by now, I mean he would be bored just watching over us operating his none-interventionist policy.
The poet: I did not ask to make this journey
To travel this mysterious road
In the fading light.
No glimmer of a celestial city to gladden my eyes.
Voice one: The poet over thinks things, he is forever looking for meaning and purpose. God is like any artist, his creations exist because an artist must create. It's art for art's sake. It's a pity the poet wasn't born into one of those other universes yo
The Train Now DepartingQuiet and self possessed the black dog lays down to wait outside the supermarket,More Like This
His people are one of the raggle-taggle families from the dilapidated quarter of town.
Immigrants from some foreign place where the sky is always blue but hope has failed.
Here they wander the well-stocked aisles of plenty, drifting apart and coming together,
Searching out the affordable, trailing ragged clouds of chaos.
Notice amongst the children, the little girl,
In the frivolous pink dress decked out with bows and frills
Carrying an unspoken challenge in her dark gypsy eyes
“Use your imagination
Stand in my shoes for a moment and feel them pinch.
How easily our places might have been exchanged,
But for the rolling of the dice,
But for the inscrutable ever-rolling dice.”
In the cities of recurring dreams,
The wise walk amongst the foolish, the uncaring and the faceless.
Put an ear down to the pavement and deeper than the noise of the traffic,
Those who have ears to hear will hear the rumble
There is no Other“All hate is one hate,More Like This
All love is one love.
I swear this truth on any book you care to name.
Behind the illusion of self
We are all limbs of the same creature.
There is no other.
Who would mock his own clouded eye,
Or ridicule his twisted foot?
The clouded eye sees visions in the mist,
The twisted foot might aid our balance
And carry us on a little way yet.
There is no other.”
Having spoken his piece the unreliable witness falls silent,
Fumbles for his or her varifocals,
And limps down from the witness stand.
“Call the next witness.”

Here upon my birthday, I bid you a toast.
You've enriched my life with humor and wit,
And stood by me even when I was a whiny twit.
You've given me pleasure, and eased my pain,
And keep me level when ought I'd go insane.
You share sage counsel, and make me chortle,
Even if you insist on reminding me I'm only mortal.
A soul must endeavor to hold on to those most dear,
And with all of you around, I might make it another year.
I'm Back and stolen art!!Hello folks,More Like This
I took a nice long break, and I'm back feeling all refeshed. Well, sort of. I'm at the tail end of a massive site re-design for a client, so I do not have a lot of time for art right now. Not personal stuff anyway.
I did want to make folks aware of something though; now and then I google the names I post art under and check the images and the pages where they are posted. I found one today on photobucket, and the woman has the nerve to be selling it as prints. Oh, I am sooooo surprised. NOT! I already sent a DMCA to photobucket for that image and I'm looking for more. She has a TON of stolen art there and she is selling a lot of it as prints. Now here is the amusing part; she has the nerve to have a disclaimer in her libraries stating she does not own or claim any of the images posted, and yet she's selling prints of art that is not her own work. Yea, like we have not all heard that before!!
She has an extensive library full of many images I recognize, so you might want to

And I'm A Mrs.!We had a wonderful autumn wedding that was small, quaint, and just what we wanted. We didn't have any attendants, but we did have a 5 year old flower girl dressed in a custom made Elsa costume who threw bird seed instead of flowers, and a 2 year old ring barer in a bow tie who had no concept of the word "slowly". All the pictures we have of him, he's flying down the walkway, different parts of him a blur.More Like This
And while I was getting ready, I would steal peaks at my soon-to-be husband out the window, telling my friends what a hot tail he was, and how lucky I was to get to take him home after the wedding. In truth, we fell asleep snuggled up on the couch in our wedding cloths as soon as we got home, then went out for supper after we woke up.
Married life is great. We are so happy, moving toward buying a new house while making our way through the holidays. We'll honeymoon one day, and I have made it crystal clear we are going to Walt Disney World and sp

I was thereIn New York City On September 21st the people came to sayMore Like This
It is time.
I was there - I am 62 years old and I was there in the Interfaith section - it was close to 400,000 people - they were all colors and all religions. We Pagan walked with Humanist Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Roman Catholics, Protestants, UU's, Atheists, etc. all colors and all walks of life.
It was the cleanest march I have ever seen - NO litter. And it stretched for 4 miles solid. It was absolutely amazing. It wasn't about having stars or heads of state marching - it was about the people coming together to say things MUST change. They came by bus and train, so many that at one point the service clogged and came to a standstill.
If there were paid people they were the organizers - and what is wrong with that? What is wrong with paying people for hard hard work? What is wrong with paying artists to do art? There were also folks paid to hand out leaflets on corners about a TV show - they were not in the march and not part

Dawn by Smattila
The wonderful thing about the shared global art narrative is that it’s constantly evolving.
A new chapter in the deviantART story has begun, with a new Today Page focused on outreach and engagement, telling our stories and bringing a devious lens to the world around us. We seek to monitor, analyze, report on, and most importantly, be a part of encouraging the bond between art, life and the human spirit using the pulse of the first digitally-oriented art collective and in ways older, established media cannot.

Collection: StaircasesMore Like This
Modern elevators have made “skyscrapers” possible—buildings with so many floors that reaching them only by stairway access would be a ridiculous and exhausting proposition. And so stairways have become hidden in blandly utilitarian “fire exit” stairwells. Even buildings now designed with no more than two or three floors save space with elevators rather than having a central stairway. And so one of the glories of our most beautiful architecture is rapidly disappearing, being preserved only in private mansion residences. It is a pity.
There is something magical in a stairway—this structure endlessly “in motion,

Childhood Fears Contest!The new contest is as much of a challenge as it is a contest. The theme is "Childhood Fears." Was it the sound of a train in the night, before you knew what trains were? A shadow on the wall at a certain time of day? Something from a movie that you were too young to see? Maybe even a children's story that spooked you; the Brothers Grimm were pretty grim.More Like This
The idea is to represent that fear in your chosen field of art/literature. The more edgy, off-balance, and surreal it is, the better the chance of winning. The contest will run through January first, 2015, so you'll have plenty of time. Don't procrastinate, though, get to creating!
So far the prizes are 200 points for first pace, 150 for second, and 100 for third in each category. There will be two categories, one for visual art and one for literature.

We did not only have these ten judges, but they were ten genuinely awesome, and talented people on the judging panel, who took this on in a way I've never experienced from a total group of judges in general.
They took it on like a project that they were either already familiar with, or one that would be an opportunity to research and learn a lot from. Either way they took quite a bit of time with this contest, a few took a lot of time with it throughout the contest, studying and following it closely. Either way, in the end, each judge made educated choices based
