Flickering black to white, I dwell in a widdendream of stark opportunity. Lost in a sea supreme of suppositions I never quite fulfill; I walk a razor's edge in this surreality, leaving bloody footprints in my wake.

This winding dream slices through my vernacular leaving my tongue bleeding. A widening dreamscape painted for posterity;
showcasing a syntax of sharpened widdendreams.

30 Day Project - Day 1

Ten Facts About Me

1. My middle name is Ann.

2. I haven't worn regular deodorant in over 5 years. I've probably talked about this before. I don't stink either!! I use a crystal deodorant. I would never, ever go back to regular deodorant.

3. I like an eclectic assortment of music from Tool, Counting Crows, Nightwish, Death Cab for Cutie, The Cruxshadows, Rage Against the Machine, Yes, U2, Sting, and tons more as well as classical (esp. orchestra / stringed - not so much piano) and bluegrass. I do not like modern country.

4. I collect postcards from all over the world, all written on, stamped and mailed to me.

5. I love to cook. My favorite things to cook always include chicken.

6. I love to roleplay, it's a great escape. I am involved in d&d 3.5 campaign and it is AWESOME as is my DM.

7. I have been married for 15 years this year, though not all spent together. We were separated twice, the first time 18 months, the second time a little over a year. I had a legal separation the second time, but we ended up back together before the divorce.

8. I am allergic to most perfumes and colognes, soaps, shampoos, etc. Which makes my newly turned teenage son upset, but it gives me a horrible headache and sometimes a migraine.

9. I love to travel. I've been overseas several times. Been on the castle ramparts on the Rhine River in Germany, watched a jazz concert in an ancient ampitheatre in Cyprus overlooking the Mediterranean, walked the supposed steps of Jesus through the streets of Jerusalem, went inside to the very center of the middle pyramid on the Giza Plateau in Egypt as well as been to the Cairo museum to see all of King Tut's stuff amongst other things. Been to Bethlehem in Israel. Parasailed over the Mediteranean. Got my picture with the post in Paphos that St. Paul was tied to and whipped. Got mistaken for a terrorist going to Israel and was detained. Also been to the Niagara Falls when it was all snowy and icy, went to Biltmore House a few times, once during Christmas where the tree was so big full sized tricycles hung from it. Been to the Angel Oak Tree in SC, oldest living thing this side of the Mississippi.

10. I have two tattoos. One on my back, one on my right forearm. Back is a triskele with dragonflies and celtic knots, forearm is a lotus with a knotwork on the stem. I am getting another tattoo in a few months.

My 40th Year

It has been quite nearly a year since I've blogged, and I'm not really sure why I've been so ..gone.. this past year. I stopped using deviantart much, I haven't done much with facebook, I haven't done many shoots with my photography, and I stopped doing as many crafts and using swap-bot for the time being. The best word to describe the past year is probably "blah". I've just been blah. I have been sick it seems for most of the year. I feel much worse than normal for the past 3 or 4 days. My mom had me check my sugar and it's been high I guess. 160 and 169 2 hours after eating, and 90 fasting. I dunno, time to see the doctor again.

I thought about this idea though, to blog during my 40th year about not only things happening to me, but what has happened to me in the past to bring me to this 40th year. I am hoping this allows me to not be so depressed about getting OLD.
