Only the Wild Ones

“And only the wild ones
Give you something and never want it back
Oh the riot and the rush of the warm night air
Only the wild ones
Are the ones you can never catch
Stars are up now no place to go, but everywhere”
~ Dispatch – Only the Wild Ones

Losing It

I remember the first time I saw my mom just lose it. She had spent hours making this cake from scratch, but it tilted so bad and kept sliding, no matter what she tried. Next thing I know she’s screaming and attacks the cakes with her claw like hands and cakes went everywhere. The next time I saw her lose it was when we had borrowed a VW Bug from a friend. It had a stick shift (look it up if you’re too young to know) and she hated them, the clutch would stick, too. It was the first time I heard the F word. *gasps* I think the first time I truly lost it was in high school. It was a really bad hair day and I broke my hair brush. Many times, I’ve felt like throwing all my papers in the air when writing…and once upon a time I did all my writing on paper. *giggles* Most days this is what my brain feels like…someone just threw my life in the air and I’m doing my best to grab it all and make some sense of it.

All I Ever Wanted Was Everything

Just this…

Bauhaus – All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

All we ever wanted was everything
All we ever got was cold
Get up, eat jelly, sandwich bars and barbed wire
And squash every week into a day
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
The sound of the drum is calling
The sound of the drum has called
Flash of youth shoot out of darkness
Factory town
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh to be the cream
Oh to be the cream
Oh to be the cream

all I ever wanted

Cobblestone

Cobblestone

Once upon a time, all roads were rough
But the people that drove them grew up tough
Used to the bumps, the holes, and the bounce
They took their lumps, their woes by the ounce

That’s when good roads were cobblestone
The poor ones were rocks and dirt
Now we’re spoiled with pavement
But older wheels make our egos hurt

Once upon a time, you were lucky to have an outhouse
Today we’re all screaming if we even see a little mouse
Candles provided the only source of evening light
Now we bitch if the cable goes out at night

Now its a novelty to find cobblestone
We romanticize the days of yesteryear
Yet, we take for granted what we have now
We’re fucking lucky, let’s make that clear

Once upon a time, vows meant a life long commitment
And divorce? Well, that was an embarrassment
Now you can swipe left or swipe right
Hoping our profiles will get a bite

So, the next time you find yourself on cobblestone
Look in your heart to find some gratitude
Because the state of your life
Could very well rest upon your attitude

Power

“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” ~Alice Walker

Such a simple statement, yet filled to the brim with truth. We often refuse our own power whether surrender to others for emotional gratification or pointing fingers to place the blame for our predicaments. The truth is we have a hand in everything that happens to us. Perhaps not in the actual events, but certainly we are responsible for how we move forward. The victim of a crime is only a victim for as long as the crime is happening. Afterwards, there is a choice…survive or surrender. Use the power within ourselves to overcome what has happened or surrender to the fear, pain, and memories of it all. Power…really is a choice, isn’t it?

Breaking Free

I wrote the other day about wanting to do something different and well, here it is. *laughs* This me trying to think outside the box? I honestly have no idea what to say about this, except that I think sometimes when we feel caged, its our own fault. Sometimes we lose sight of what we want in the effort to please others. Sometimes we stifle our creativity by trying to control it. So, this is me breaking free in a way. I actually really like how this turned out, but its hard for me to explain the way it makes me feel. Words are hard sometimes, okay?

Google & Me- #SecondLifeChallenge

Alright, Strawberry has another challenge for us and her’s the instructions:
Google your Second Life avatar name inside quotation marks and then answer the following questions.

  1. Google your Second Life name in “quotations” and share your results. About 7,440 results
  2. What are the first 5 links that come up? My flickr, my playlist on YouTube, my SL blog, my short story blog that I don’t use, and my Google+.
  3. Click on the “Images” tab and tell us where the first 5 images are from. All of them are on Flickr and from my blogs.
  4. Click on the “Videos” tab and share your results, if any. The first one is a video I was in for MadPea a while back, the rest are songs I liked or commented on.
  5. Click on the “News” tab and share your results, if any. The only result was do I mean Sadystik Sabretooth, which got no results. No news is good news, right?
  6. Did any of the results surprise you? I was surprised there were so many results. Apparently, I’ve been tagged in a lot blogs and stuff that I didn’t know about.
  7. Are you satisfied with your results or wish they were different in any way? I can’t say I’d want to see them differently or that I was dissatisfied. I never even thought to do this before, but it was fun and now I’m sort of obsessed with seeing what all these results are AND I’ve found myself creating a Pinterest account…what the hell is happening to me???

Random Run

She was out for a run like any other day. She stopped at the corner market for her bottle of water and a rest when the adorable little puppy wandered up, tongue and tail wagging. She poured some of her water on the ground for the pup and he lapped up before passing out at her feet. He had no tags and he was too cute to leave abandoned in a parking lot. She sighed and rolled her eyes at herself, I don’t have time for a puppy. She carried the pup into the store and asked the clerk if she knew anything about it. The clerk mentioned that the pup had been hanging around for a few days but no one had claimed it or came looking for it. Sady sighed again, left her number with the clerk just in case anyone came looking for the sweet puppy and took it home.
That was six years ago, the Random and Sady have been inseparable ever since.

The 3F Rule

“I can swear, I can joke
I say what’s on my mind
If I drink, if I smoke
I keep up with the guys
And you see me holding up my middle finger to the world
Fuck your ribbons and your pearls
‘Cause I’m not just a pretty girl”
Maggie Lindemann – Pretty Girl

My mother was raised in a strict Christian home by a single mom that was too proud to accept charity of any kind, thus she worked three jobs to keep the bills paid. Yet, somehow never missed church or disciplining her daughters by reminding them to carry themselves a certain way. Afterall, what would people think? My father was raised in a very abusive home and was often hidden away from the public by his single mom. She would lock him in the basement on weekends so that she could pretend she only had two children, whose father had died during WWII. (Mind you he died in prison, not the war, but she conveniently left that part of the story out.) My father’s dad had left when he was only 3yrs old to pursue his drinking and drug addictions. Eventually my father joined the U.S. Army, where once again, life was all about appearances.
Needless to say, my parents expected me to behave a certain way. They taught me how to converse with adults politely, then disappear, as children were meant to be seen, not heard. My parents finally divorced when I was in high school and my mother was so beside herself with grief that she quit imposing so many rules on me. That was when I began to develop my own style and discover the person I wanted to be. I didn’t want to cater to society’s norms. I wanted to in the exit door and leave through the entrance. I wanted to wear short skirts over leggings with ripped tee shirts and wild hair.
For years, my mother tried to make me a princess. She wanted to decorate my room with ruffles and canopy beds. I wanted my mattress on the floor with tons of pillows. She quickly became very much like her own mother and repeatedly said to me, “What will people think?”
I didn’t care what people thought! If they didn’t know me, how could they have a proper impression of me? Based on my clothes? The color of my skin? The color of my hair? My eyes? Eventually I discovered the 3F rule and I’ve pretty much lived my life that way ever since.
The 3F rule is simple: If you are not Feeding me, Financing me, or Fucking me….you get no say in how I live my life and your opinion means nothing to me. I was never going to be what my mother wanted me to be, nor did I want to. Yes, she was feeding me and financing me at the time, but she still needed to let me be me…or there would be a fight. There were many of those over the years until she realized she was never going to win. I was not going to be this super feminine little princess that sat around waiting for some prince charming, because I learned early on…you can never truly know another person. The only person you can truly know is yourself and that’s the person you should be true to.

A Broken Phone Booth

“Am I alive or thoughts that drift away?
Does summer come for everyone?
Can humans do as prophets say?
And if I die before I learn to speak
Can money pay for all the days I lived awake
But half asleep?”
Primitive Radio Gods – Standing Outside A Broken Phone Booth With Money In My Hand

This is one of those songs that I’ve probably heard at least 100 times. I liked it a lot. The chorus is quite catchy with the lyrics like:
“I’ve been downhearted baby,
I’ve been downhearted baby,
Ever since the day we met”

and the “Do do do do do do”

However, it wasn’t until I looked up the actual lyrics that I was truly moved by the poetry of it. The melody is certainly hypnotic, but now I think its going to be one of my favorite songs all because I took the time to really read the lyrics in a stand alone manner, like poetry. Which, of course, is something I can truly appreciate as I used to write quite a bit of poetry and on occasion, I still do. I even have another blog for my poetry, that I’ve sadly neglected for a very long time.
I was talking to Josh about writing last night and of course, he’s very supportive and encouraging, but I simply don’t have the drive I once did for such things. My own poetic words have abandoned me, but alas I’m still full of cra…erhm…I mean plenty of random musings like this one.

telephone_005

Anyway, I’d like to wrap up this post with a moment of silence as I send positive thoughts, love & healing light to all of those in Manchester…what happened last night was an immense tragedy and while it breaks my heart that this has happened at all. The way the English people came together to assist one another somehow manages to restore just a little of my faith in humanity and the strength of communities.
