If…moreRead and read and read and try not to call it a 'block' but rather another valley on the way to a hill. Damn, I sounded like Heidi!! frightening! If we remember that everything must come in its time, then we are never blocked, but at a stage of accumulating information for the next step. Now, if I could only believe that!!!(less)

Inspiration always comes from the dusty, dark corners of our lives, humanity, the places no one wants to go, and yet we all do, whether we engage with the shadow aspect or not. That is why I am blown away by your work! You never turn away, no matter how hard it is to look, to remember! xoxo(less)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Robert Vaughan and Kathy Fish light fire in this collection, ‘Rift’!

Fault: Tremor: Breach: Cataclysm
four sections that structure this remarkable collaborative.

Each story is its own haunting that envelops and reveals an oppression, a weight that restrains, a hesitation, a sensitivity that unnerves yet strengthens, the small spaces we encapsulate when i... Read more of this blog post »

“Looking down the barrel of your eye I see the body of a bloody Cinderella looking back.' Djuna Barnes”
Meg Tuite

“But then, time was its own sorcerer, sealed with the blood of whole civilizations that rose up and buried themselves in the bitter song of a single hour, and one could remember almost anything if they looked back far enough.”
Meg Tuite

“A globular face mapped not on foreign landscapes and forgotten towns, but on a lifetime of voluntary entombment and inner warfare. The outside world had been locked out a long time ago. Lacey’s borders now wedged between the snap of two deadbolts and the power switch of her TV remote.”
Meg Tuite, Domestic Apparition

“Looking down the barrel of your eye, I see the body of a Bloody Cinderella looking back.”
Djuna Barnes, The Antiphon

“But then, time was its own sorcerer, sealed with the blood of whole civilizations that rose up and buried themselves in the bitter song of a single hour, and one could remember almost anything if they looked back far enough.”
Meg Tuite

“–I'll just play the notes inside my skull alone in the dark where they roam around loose. 'Cause playing like a slave, I'd just step myself straight into a hangman's noose."
On Sissieretta Jones, Jess writes: "See, Sissie would know how to let folks into one mask and out through another. She'd even raise a toast to the mask, jokin about whether folk–black and white–really believed that the opera was wearing her as a mask, or if it just tickled them to see her puttin on that white mask of Vivaldi. Was it her voice or someone else's? they'd seem to ask. Well, it was all her. Every note, in whiteface or blackface or in just plain old American, went straight down to her bones. That's what I heard when I truly listened, anyway. She'd pour those opera songs all over her body and then dress herself in the church frock of hymns. She told me one time, that in order to hear her true voice, she'd had to ask herself about her own masks. What kind of mask might I have on? she said. Because let me tell you, most don't even know they're wearing a mask. You've got to know which masks, how many masks you're wearing before you can put it down and see your true self. Those that do, they know just how to slide in and out of it, how to make the world spin inside it and out of it. How to spread their song all over that mask and make it one with the world, no matter how thick or thin the truth in that song might be.”
Tyehimba Jess, Olio

“It's always the heart, isn't it, even when it's not?”
Kellie Wells, Compression Scars

“The night is the color of the eyelids of the dead.”
Alejandra Pizarnik, Obras Completas
