Gentle Revolution

How do you get the gears of the world to stop grinding? Twelve inches of powder on the ground Silent ambush in the night Anthrax white A blanket laid over the bustle To smother the flames Forecasted and prepped for We, willful creatures, masters of all, Resign ourselves to the whims of the sky Hail her power, in its absolution We pay tribute to her In sacred stillness

Diagnosed Crazy

Just yesterday he had told me that the world was slowly crumbling into an empty, heartless abyss and there was nothing he could do about it. The account of this supposed apocalypse was so fluent and elaborate that I experienced a shiver down my spine when it occurred to me that I was beginning to believe him. It was Wednesday. We sat down for our weekly six o'clock session. He sat in the chair across from me, back straight, hands crossed in his lap. He gave me his same squirrely smile and stared at me with his rich black eyes. I read eyes, but these ones seemed unreadable. They weren't empty -- no, quite the contrary. They were thick, so ful

Three Journal Entries

6:00 AM Thurs, May 19, 2011 Dear Journal, It's been a while since I last wrote. I decided to start writing again because Alex wants to incorporate "Journaling Workshops" into the curriculum for the Veteran's Writing Group I'm helping him with this summer. And I owe him one, since I was only able to teach writing workshops at Boys Town because we carpooled together. But in order to prepare myself for this, I spent 2 days reading old entries, reliving college moments and old flames. I was talking to Justin earlier this morning (and we really don't talk much) and I forgot what we had, and how we lost it. So I refreshed myself on that. And it'

Equestria Centennial Census Tour: Ponyville Log

Day 1: Landing in Ponyville I landed just on the outskirts of town, in order to avoid causing alarm. Townsponies of small hamlets such as this one are often overexcited by visits from royalty, and rarely does this ever suit my purposes. Though Celestia had told me an alicorn did now reside here, one by the name of Twilight Sparkle, keeper of the Elements of Harmony and recently ascended, I still did not expect the townsponies to be any more comfortable with the presence of an alicorn, especially a strange one who had not touched down in their town for a couple generations. I tucked my wings under my saddlebags before moving into the villag

Sabaton on Tour -- EXCLUSIVE

The crowd at Firestone Live was evenly divided between bright-eyed twenty-somethings and middle-aged, veteran metal heads. This was just what I expected from a show where the headlining band has been around since the '70s, and the biggest opening band could attribute much of its rising fame to YouTube fan videos. Orlando, Florida was the first stop for the Sabaton/ACCEPT U.S. tour. For the German band ACCEPT, this was just business as usual. But for Sabaton, April 9th, 2011 was a landmark, as it was their first stop in their first-ever U.S. tour. "Everyone here is so polite," Joakim Brodén, lead vocalist, remarks. "In places we have to

Okay For Real This Time...

Okay For Real This Time...

As I look forward to a new year, and yet another move in a few short months, I am doing my best to take advantage of the present calm in my life at the moment. My goal is to try and get my commission queue completely cleared out before I have to move again in May. Because, if history serves, another move just means things will get unstable again, and it's really difficult to get any work done in those conditions. And you have all been waiting far, far too long. It's rather unorthodox of me, but I started this time at the END of my commission queue, with single-piece commissions that I knew would be easier for me to get out of the way. And be

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

I'M BACK! There have been a lot of major changes happening in my life since moving to New England, and it's taken a lot of time to get my bearings. I ended a long-standing relationship of 11 years, and recently started some new ones. My family looks a lot different now than it once did, and adjusting to that has taken up a lot of my energy. Things have finally settled down now, and I have a much clearer vision for my future. I just finished getting settled into a new place (again) and will be trying to get back into the swing of things very soon. Preschool will be ending next month, but I expect to have my kid in daycare over the summer. Ass
I'm back to work! Getting my ponies in a row in the workshop, and it feels great. I missed the smell of plastic and fresh paint o^_^o

:iconprincesscelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:A very good day to you, human. I come to you on your day of birth with greetings... and thanks.
:iconcelestia-plz::iconsaysplz:My good subject Pinkie Pie told me she had taken to congratulating some humans on their birthdays, but even she has her limits. So she asked us for a bit of assistance... and for such friends of ponykind, we feel it right to provide it.
:iconhappycelestiaplz::iconsaysplz:It is thanks to people like you that our land of Equestria, our very world, exists like it does. It is your friendship with us that gave us life. For that, we will forever be grateful and cherish you.
:iconcelestiapleasedplz::iconsaysplz:And so, allow me to wish you happiness, peace, prosperity and fulfillment! My hope goes with you that you suffer no hardship in the year ahead, but should a challenge befall you, I am certain your courage and skill will see you rise to conquer it!
