aldous huxley

It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig. Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me. When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic. No rhetoric, no tremolos, no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell. And of course, no theology, no metaphysics. Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light. So throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling, on tiptoes and no luggage, not even a sponge bag, completely unencumbered.

The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the
distillation, it is odorless,
It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it,
I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked,
I am mad for it to be in contact with me.


My Daily Deviations!……

Hello, thank you for stopping by. :). I'm a self-taught amateur photographer, lifelong poetess, and nude model. My focus here will be on photog & poetry; I'm here to learn, be inspired & discover new artists that I can't live without. I've only been into photography for about a year now, and have only had a "real" camera for about six months, so I have a lot to learn, and I'm ready for it. :) My favourite subjects are flowers...I cannot get enough of them! I currently shoot with a Canon EOS Rebel XS. As of yet I have no special lenses. *sniff* :( It will happen though! ^_^

Other creative outlets include dance & music; I've had some formal training in both, including lyrical/contemporary, ballet, and jazz.... I studied violin in my much younger days, but sadly haven't picked one up in many years. I enjoy creating the occasional abstract painting but am very much a novice (I have a small collection of those up here, in abstracts folder). Most recently I have picked up lap harp, which has proven to be very meditative for me. I've explored the world of nude modelling and have worked a bit with Suicide Girls. (a small collection of both my professional nude work & nude self-portraiture are available in the nude folder in my gallery). I have been writing poetry and prose since I can remember.

Me-isms... I prefer cats to dogs, reading to conversation (don't get me wrong, I do love a wonderful's just that I'm more of a quiet observer than a talker), and I believe that being bored is for boring people. I like to find the hidden meaning in things and enjoy cryptic poetry. I believe in secrets, and getting so lost in your own memory that you can barely find your way out. I have a great fondness for those who make themselves vulnerable. I'm a fierce mother wolf who takes no bullshit, but I also believe in the power of forgiveness and letting go, and am likely one of the most resilient people you'll ever meet. I've been through a lot, and I think most creative people have. I consider myself both a strong & sensitive woman, unyielding, with a stalwart intuition. :) However, I can get bogged down in my existential dread and most look to and appreciate those who can help me alleviate this, not feed into it. I believe in change and despise monotony and stagnation. I believe that if you aren't changing, then you aren't growing.

I do *NOT* Skype/videochat, and if you ask you will be ignored. I'm not here for all that. Subsequently I will most definitely *NOT* send you private nude pictures, and if you ask you will likely be blocked. Please respect me & all other models/artists here, and you will be shown great kindness. :)

My photography, art, and poetry may not be used for any reason without my express permission. I *am* open to these things, just ask nicely/make me aware of the intent of use, I will very likely say yes. :)

~Listen to me tinker on my lap harp~

I faithfully return all llamas, and I always thank my new watchers and come to their page to view their art. These things may take me awhile to get to, but I promise, they will always happen! :)

I'm consider myself a wonderful watcher. If I watch you, I favourite your works and comment on a regular basis. :) I do admit to being a bit neglectful of literature, only because it requires so much more time to read and comment on. I will work on that! :)

When I have an abundance of points, I give them out for fun with points games in status updates, or raffles! ^_^

*no need to thank me for llamas, comments, faves, or points* <3 The pleasure is mine and you deserve it! :)


Nimbue has started a donation pool!
2,045 / 3,000
I give all collected points out to those who deserve them :)

You must be logged in to donate.
This week I've decided to include many art mediums in a fun and spontaneous random selection of favourites  :)  In keeping with all previous features, I've chosen only to highlight pieces that I consider under-appreciated (100 faves or less).  Please take the time out to favourite and comment on these exceptionally stunning works!

As always, I'm sorry I do not possess the knowledge or patient to deck my features out and make them tidier.  I hope you will be able to see past that and through to the most important beauty of the artists creations.  :)  <3

sweatsummer inertia weighs heavy
as a blanket during a nightmare;
even hummingbird wings beat
at halfspeed and the flit of the dragonfly
is caught in molasses; smiles
wane in the sun-drenched afternoon.
shadows stretch till long as pine trees -
a dark, sparse colonnade along the grass
and the spider dares move only
on impending footfalls; its web bobbing
sultry in the heat.
onto the blistered, brittle land
the sun spits
and the sky melts
into the inferior mirage.
      Rain SonataRain trembles
upon my skin,
Playing a solo
on my cheekbones
and a chorus on my
skybound palms,
and without hesitation,
I've been
into an instrument
for heaven’s gray
melancholy song,
as the clouds
into a crescendo
of falling
           morning broke the spellmorning broke the spell
the mirror shattered, now
a galaxy filled with fluttering shards
dancing in air so still it's a wonder
anything could break at all.
softly, winter scars our lungs.
      wombsi lingered in my mother's belly
like a hunger
five days after i was due 
to make my grand appearance.
it's almost as if i was hesitant to leave the womb,
to break upon this empty sky as dawns do,
spill my colors like glowstick syrup on this bleak world,
or maybe, let the world
spill its bleakness onto my beauty
a newborn baby
wrapped in cotton and swaddled in fate
as i grew older,
i witnessed the other kids losing their baby teeth and 
i wanted nothing to do with it
i let my teeth dangle like christmas ornaments
hanging by threads,
didn't want to sever the ties i had to the past
the first food i ate went past these very teeth
they erupted from my peach-flesh gums, turned valleys to mountains
the first words i babbled fell into the world, slipping through these pearls
irregular as the flight of a bat
but no matter how scared i felt, my baby teeth still fell
hard white snowflakes, bleeding ruby, meteor showers flowering into the sink,
later plucked up and hidden in a secret box

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.

~ Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad


I usually get myself into situations that cause sparks. I mean I'm a girl that likes the storms. I love feeling alive, I love walking out in the cold in my bare feet and feeling the ice on my toes.
