The Side

July 22, 2014

~~~~~★~~~~~
On the side she did
remain for the front
is a crowded place.
A type of girl that
shan’t be pegged
unless she’s
strewn in lace.
~~~~~★~~~~~
Breathe brightest
white. Vision is tazed
by a blurring fantasy.
The side of this and
the side of that is
under lock and key.

Complicated

July 21, 2014

Labyrinthian.
A puzzle piece.
Complicated to the core.
Sophisticated.
Never to solve.
Tangle it up some more.
Complexity.
So multi-part.
Difficult…it’s plain to see.
Intricate.
Explore each piece.
Every puzzle has a key.

The Tragedy of Carmen

July 19, 2014

image

Last night I went to the Santa Fe Opera. After a tail gate dinner, we watched the tragic love story Carmen. The opera is said to be one of the most performed operas by the French composer Georges Bizet. There were four acts with an intermission in between and the show started at 8:30pm with the ending close to midnight. In the end, Carmen the gypsy meets with death.

image

The libretto for this opera was based on a novella and was written by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy. Carmen was first performed at the Opéra-Comique in Paris in 1875. Sadly, Bizet died before his tragic opera saw success. Carmen is a story about the powers and poisons of seduction and love. It was a beautiful evening. The outdoor opera house reminded me of how lovely my city is at night.

***Side note…I went to see this opera with my division director/deputy administrator, but coincidentally, my former division director who is also my former administrator was also there to see the show. Haha…small world!

Na…Na…Man…That shizz is fire!

July 16, 2014

This jam is absolute fire! I have been feeling this song, but I like it even more now that I have the video on my pod. This may be the best music video I have seen in a while. The imagery is hot •• Hot •• HOT! Let me clarify that…super *H•O•T*!! Though…it’s to bad the video lyrics don’t follow the “dirty version.”

I do love me some sweaty peeps working out! When Trey Songz’s woman comes back in the end of the video in camo shorts to train him…it is awesome!!! Love that final scene!! Gotta love Trigga Trey~ bringing that fire back. They were actually working out in the video, but I wish Trey would have actually benched 225 for at least 15 reps. Sad face. Haha!!

Lyrical Lure

July 13, 2014

~~~~~
Metamorphoses…hear the
siren’s song. Her haunted
lyrics reek of death.
Wings search for an
abducted soul. She infuses
darkness with her breath.
Curse of love. A melody
so sweet that the saccharin
hurts your teeth.
Muse of a world lost
in dreams and what
festers underneath.
Irresistible…call from
the depths. Siren lulling
him to keep.
Listen to her soothing
song if you fear not
becoming weak.

Killing the Invisible

*****An important page from the “Career Module” of Fundamentals of Management: Essential Concepts and Applications by Robbins Decenzo Coulter.*****

__________
I’m getting ready to study for a bit. After that, I am gonna watch the women get tough on the Broken Skull Ranch (excited with a big smile). Before I hit the study table, I wanted to share a thought about something I read and something that happened last week.

I am almost finished reading Fundamentals of Management: Essential Concepts and Applications by Robbins Decenzo Coulter. Reading the “Career Module” reminded me of a comment my friend Meghan made to me and another woman last week.

We were standing together talking and I was encouraging a woman from another agency to develop her professional network. I think that is critical to career development. Meghan said I should be a career counselor. We laughed and in all seriousness we all agreed upon the power of networking.

I don’t just think professional networking is important, but personal networking as well. I say personal versus social because I am not referring to a network that gives you nothing but entertainment in return. I mean the type of networking which is mutually beneficial in deeper ways.

For example…I like to network with people to share personal knowledge as well. This can sometimes happen in a social network, but is more valuable if the connection is not virtual so knowledge and information can not only be shared, but accepted and implemented (if you will).

My sister always tells me I know a lot of people. She has even told me I “should run for mayor.” I may have this virtual portal where I network and learn from fellow writers, artists, creative creatures, fitness buffs, and professionals, but there is nothing like real world networks.

Meghan and my sister are both right about me. I love networking and I love people. I intend to leave my mark on this world in one way or another. There is one thing I am sure of…and that is the power of networking. I do not plan to disappear into the dark chasm of invisibility. I plan to stay visible. I plan to make a heavy mark.

Touching Imperfection

July 9, 2014

image
~★~
Bodies…just as imagined
in worlds of living color.
Every flawless mistake traced
by surrendered fingertips.
Skin rough, still silky and
smooth as buttered petals.
Bodies…sweetly enthralled
by perfection’s shape.
Each lovely fault embraced
by tongues with time.
Working hands…callused by
labor and softened by need.
Bodies…his and hers. Touching
imperfection with souls aflame.

Royal Bones & Thoughts of Fireworks

July 4, 2014

image
***My sliced up “Royal Bones” jeans and clasped bustier.***

I am lovin’ my new Royal Bones outfit for my visit to Pagosa Springs, Colorado. Royal Bones clothes rock!! This isn’t really a cowgirl outfit for the rodeo, but it’s a hot look indeed! We are on the road now. Close to Bmac’s stomping ground! Rodeo, carnival, festivals, hiking, fishing, hot springs, waterfalls, swimming, relaxing, shopping, eating, maybe drinking…what will I do? Who knows!? Wherever the road may lead I say.

Tonight is the 4th of July. The sulfur laced smell of burned out flames will linger in the night air. Fire…turned to smoke. It’s a time to watch new sparks connect as they light up the dark sky. It’s a time for some lips to meet under the neon shades birthed by intoxicating bombshells. Colors, beauty, explosions, free to explore the star filled Colorado sky. Inevitably…I’ll crave a taste of chocolate, and the excitement and feel of beautiful fireworks. 

Pico de Yummy

July 4, 2014

Wow!! My friend Meghan makes some awesome stuff. She made this yummy watermelon pico de gallo and offered me some. How could I resist this health conscious condiment after she texted me a pic?? I drove all the way into town just to pick this stuff up. This morning I got in my protein with some healthy deviled eggs stuffed with this gallo with a twist perfect for summer. Delish!!! I love that lady…Meghan. :)

Catcher of Dreams

July 1, 2014

Here is one of my new digital
composites. It has four layers.
It includes a photograph of myself
and a photograph of a special
dream catcher that I made not
long ago. It is impossible to catch
dreams sometimes.

Protagonist

~★~
The protagonist is dressed to kill.
Death comes swiftly as a kiss.
Scent drifting off a collared neck,
so the scentful steady miss.
~★~
Start a blazing fire, protagonist
with the cleverest of skill.
Your antagonist is fit to pin you
down and siphon all your will.
