Just LION around

From the moment I saw these lions from Rezz Room, I knew exactly what type of photo I wanted to do. Lucky for me, I have some very patient friends that were more than willing to pose all pretty. What I was going for was one of those situations where models are doing an editorial spread and shoot on location. While they pose and look all aloof or bored, when deep down they are screaming inside because they are so close to the lions. The best part of this is that when Precious was posing, she didn’t even notice the lions until I showed her my raw shot. *dies laughing* I think she was too busy trying to look down my shirt! Meanwhile, we just dumped poor Damien in the back and told him to keep his hands to himself. *laughs* That’s probably why he’s shooting us the bird! *giggles* And Puss…well, she’s just my original toon that does as I tell her.

This is our world

See the tramp coming up the strip with the a hundred dollar smile
Sparks flying off her finger tips, driving a young cunt wild
Some nights, I’m wound so tight, like a storm about to break
Better stand in a doorway when everything starts to shake
You get restless, like a cat waking up at midnight
Hungry, never quite satisfied
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
Layer other like a street god, with a drop-dead attitude
Scenes looking like a shadow now, and I know I’m being fooled
Sometimes I’m wound so tight like a wave about crash
Hard times seem to multiply, but the joy runs out so fast
You get restless, like a kid crawling out of a bad dream
Hungry, never quite satisfied
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
Make way for the son of a rebel
He’s got two black eyes, and a bitter heart
And a bone hanging on a chain
These times, like dynamite
A head on history
Some fools gonna bed it all down
And don’t care about you and me
You get desperate, like a child in the eye of a nightmare
Hungry, never quite satisfied
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
This is our world, and these are our times
Ooooover
Ouuur worrrld, ouuur tiiimes
Our world, our times
Our world, our times
Our world, our times

Rough Week

It’s been a rough week full of tough decisions and its only Thursday! I’ve missed my last two group therapy appointments and I’m in serious need of some one on one with my therapist, luckily I have an appointment tomorrow. I’ve been avoiding someone close to me, because their lifestyle is toxic to me and despite the fact that I’ve asked repeatedly for some boundaries to be in place, this person refuses to show me even a modicum of respect.
It is absolutely heartbreaking to think that I might be losing a friend that I’ve grown to love so very much, but at the end of the day I must take care of myself. I’ve spent the last four years living in this dark hole of a life and as I try my hardest to pull myself out…I cannot allow anyone to hinder my growth. On the other hand, a true friend wouldn’t be so blatantly disrespectful, would they?
I mean, if I don’t set boundaries for myself and the people I allow in my life, I will only be putting myself back into that little people pleasing box, running around on auto pilot that has put me so far into the darkness I’m so desperately trying to escape. I want to enjoy what’s left of my life and I can’t do that if I continue to permit someone to consistently disrespect me. We tell each other all the time not to let our lovers do it, but we rarely approach the subject of friends. Sadly, that’s where I am right now and its a bridge I have avoided crossing for the better part of the past six months. *sighs*

Her Chaos

“Wild woman are an unexplainable spark of life. They ooze freedom and seek awareness, they belong to nobody but themselves yet give a piece of who they are to everyone they meet.
If you have met one, hold on to her, she’ll allow you into her chaos but she’ll also show you her magic.”
― Nikki Rowe

Looking too closely

This is a song about somebody else
So don’t worry yourself, worry yourself
The devil’s right there, right there in the details
And you don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
By looking too closely
No no no no…

Put your arms around somebody else
And don’t punish yourself, punish yourself
The truth is like blood underneath your fingernails
You don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
By looking too closely
No no no no…
No no no no…

You don’t wanna hurt yourself
You don’t wanna hurt yourself

And I could be wrong about anybody else
So don’t kid yourself, kid yourself
It’s you right there, right there in the mirror
You don’t wanna hurt yourself, hurt yourself
By looking too closely
Mmmmmmmm
By looking too close
Mmmmmmm
Yeah…..
Looking too closely
You don’t wanna hurt yourself
You don’t wanna hurt yourself
By looking too closely

“Tell me what you need
Oh, you look so free

Come on and work it for me
Don’t let them get you down
You’re the best thing I’ve seen
We never found the answer
But we knew one thing”

Travel West

“If you have not touched the rocky wall of a canyon. If you have not heard a rushing river pound over cobblestones. If you have not seen a native trout rise in a crystalline pool beneath a shattering riffle, or a golden eagle spread its wings and cover you in shadow. If you have not seen the tree line recede to the top of a bare crested mountain. If you have not looked into a pair of wild eyes and seen your own reflection. Please, for the good of your soul, travel west.”

All Good Things

What I was thinking when I took this picture was that she had gone to revisit a favorite lake from her childhood and even took her dogs along, only to discover that it was overgrown and swampy now. The gelato stand had been abandoned. The snack shack was boarded up. She’d barely managed to get her dog out of the water before an alligator started heading their way. Alas, all good things must come to an end.

“No, I don’t have to tell a soul about this, I promised myself. When you are a kid, you don’t know yet that a secret, like an animal, can evolve. Like an animal, a secret can develop a self-preserving intelligence. Shaglike, mute and thick, a knowledge with a fur: your secret.”
― Karen RussellSwamplandia!

That’s just a really deep quote from one of my favorite books. It stands all on its own and makes beautiful, perfect sense to me. In the book, the context is quite complex. I’ve not met anyone else that’s ever read it though. I chose the quote for personal reasons, but the book it comes from kinda fits the picture…so, yeah, that’s about it. *laughs*

Smoke Break

We all know smoking is bad for you and there’s not a smoker on the planet that hasn’t had some goofball walk up to them while smoking and say, “Those things will kill you.” I don’t know if they think they’re being funny, helpful, or if they genuinely lack the brain power to come up with something more original and less insulting. I can’t imagine anyone has ever been mid cigarette, heard those words and been like, “Oh shit, let me put this out and stop then!” Well, I mean, did they actually do it and mean it? *laughs* Cuz I have done that to a few people just to see the look on their faces, but I never stopped smoking because someone said that to me.
In fact, it has been smoke breaks that got me closer to people. At my last job, there were people I never saw except when smoking. It was a form of networking and I loved it. You see, it just didn’t matter what job you had, how high up or menial your job…you had to go outside to smoke and there were designated areas. Even at home, I’m more apt to speak to one of my neighbors if we are both outside smoking.
If it wasn’t such a wretched habit, I’d recommend that everyone do it for those very reasons. Alas, I continue to struggle with my nicotine addiction. For me, there’s just nothing quite like holding a cigarette between my fingers, taking a long hit, and exhaling those tendrils of smoke. Sometimes, I do get so disgusted with the negative aspects of smoking that I go back to vaping and maybe one day I will successfully quit, but for now…*takes a long draw off a cigarette and blows the smoke at her screen*…I’m a smoker.
