(first of all... please click the refresh icon ^ up top,
or you may not see the intended, lovely font~ there, good... )
~ l i f e ... . .
. . ..... D E E P K I S S E S .
deep dedication and direction.
other deep people to share it all with.
and really, really feeling what you're doing.
what the heck is it all for, anyway~?
we're going around once with this Life~
(well, this time anyway... )
so what are we gonna do with the chance ~?
with our own personal bag of tricks safely tucked
in our pockets ~
in our heads ~
in our hearts ~
in our computers ~ ~ ?
what would you shout from the rooftops ~?
you just gotta get it out there .
so~~~~ .. . . . .
the inspiration for all of this shouting~
just recently... . .
my computer and it's backup were stolen.
all my writings.
all my photos.
the beautiful and passionate documenting of my Life.
& yes.... . .
it's taking me awhile,
it comes and goes,
but of course, it is all inside of me.
i know that.
it's still hard .
the writing, how can i get it back ?
how can i do it all again ?
the passionate moments put into words .
the lovely life happenings .
the photos of temporary art .
the feelings... that all of it could conjure right back up .
without the physical baggage to lug around.
so, as they say..... . .
put that piece of cake on your head and
G O F O R I T ~ !
let's dig deep.
roll around in it.
have too much wine with friends over it...... . .
cause ~ you may loose it.
it's ok. it's ok. * ~........ . . . .

a ' t a r t ' as
.... . . good-bye ?
" e d i b l e "
offered as my token of farewell... . .
to a person ?
to a chapter ?
. ... a dream ?
a tart made of
everything i hold dear.
everything that's " me " to offer ~
~ these sweet, fresh blueberries
warmed gently in my own rose glaze...
perched on top of a lovely lemon custard...
cradled by a strong enough
yet gentle & crumbling sweet crust
made with a fresh herb and a pinch
of white pepper for spice,
then adding nuts for
ground and strength and texture...
presented humbly in a brown parchment paper cup,
surrounded with another cup of color.
color, that i can't seem to do without...
finished with, and nestled in, and crowned in
so, there it is.
me, given, as one single bite.
. ...cause i just don't know how to do it any other way ~
as the songs say.... .
* baby i give you my world... .
you can go your own way... .
you can call it another day... .
* is this real?
is this just fantasy?
nothing really matters...
. ......any way the wind blows ~
the beautiful flip side of this record is :
hello.... . . ? !
hello to a new chapter?
hello to a new mountain top view?
to my own new 'hell drive' ?
( ~ " moth to a flame " comes to mind here... . ? )
~ so always i ask:
what "g i f t " did i get to unwrap here ?
and then.... .
what do i now offer in return ?
~ h e l l o !
bring it.... . .
( . ..ok, so where's that xxxxxxx screenplay template ? )

~ ~ ~~*
isn't it ?
isn't it ?
~ ~ ............*
i seem to always want it all.
all at the same time.
a smooth flowing blend
of tastes and textures and thoughts and colors ~
~ with people & food & places,
electric new ideas,
and most of all... .
i want it, i need it to be full
with a heart.
all of this is my real
f o o d .
emotions and places and people
to feed to myself.
deliciously stirring in
all the spicy intensities
of 'real time'
of real voices
of real... .
i think it's called life's foods .
with all the juicy imperfections.
all the wonder.
~ so... . .
where are we today?
what are we eating?
what do i think?
what do i feel?
who's coming along?
how hungry am i?
how do i know when i've arrived?
. . . . ............ & why ?
we are now serving lunch.... . . .
~ please be seated.

" c a k e s ! "
february is here.
to me, that means something sweet.
. . ... what's really s w e e t in life?
so this installation is all about
' what's on the plate? '
. ...on life's pedestal ?
a vision of that ultimate, fantasy ' c a k e ' !
tall, tall, never-ending t a l l~
smooth and beautiful and etherial~
hand-painted with a sweet wash of edible pastry color~
piled even taller with layers of the darkest chocolate
spread thin like paper~
pale green chopped pistachios & rose petals
as confetti ~
with of course... .
the ' cherry on top ' !
so... . here's the box of goodies...
the magic ~
from this... . .
. . ...to this.
( magic how it all fits in one little box- )
just think if we all
put everything in our lives on a pedestal ~
well, pedestal... in a good way
like- with a chosen "respect" and "attention".
right down to the cherry filling.
with the leaves and stems and pits.
every detail accepted and... .
the little cakes
just starting out... .
to the big cakes
that have been in your life for awhile.
giving our full attention
~ top... . to bottom.
to the layers upon
upon layers of living, of experience.
( those layers seen & those frosted over~ )
in choosing our newest
' sweet bites '... .
what do we bring our forks to?
how do we pick our ' sweet ' life?
what do we want?
. ...(full) filling ? . ...nourishing ?
here's to f e b r u a r y ~*
...the month of
and ' c a k e s ! '
