Life Creeps (Birthday)

Life creeps.
Gently nudging our passions,
challenging our fears, desires, hidden dreams.

Through years, time gathers truths, lies, promises, successes and defeats to serve us at the end.

Bringing sun, moon, stars, to pass the time…
while we pass the years wondering
…are we doing it right?

Like seasons, we are new each year.
Sometimes stronger, sometimes weaker,
creating a new path in the freshly born year that lays ahead.
Given the gift of starting fresh,
what will we learn?
what will we teach?

The grass grows more quickly behind us
now,
the weeds more quickly in front.
Throwing seeds ahead, we push to plant
before the weeds can grow.
Shining, sparkling colors bloom before
my eyes.

Like children taking their first step,
I strive for steady footing.
Absorbing the shock, backed by
the power of love, I won’t fall off.

will you embrace me?
thickly, brazenly in charge
over this rainbow pallet.

I know you’ll love me the most.
my love for you will never fade,
or let you down,
(never) clash with your life
in any way.

you can wear whatever you like around me.
I will love you deeply.
stay with you, forever …
and … you will always remember, me.

Foleywood: The Legend Of Boomer Lav

Wikipedia definition –  ‘Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects which are added in post production to enhance the quality of audio for films, television, video, video games and radio.[1] These reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience.[2] It helps to create a sense of reality within a scene. Without these crucial background noises, movies feel unnaturally quiet and uncomfortable…’

Congrats to the crew & cast of Foleywood: The Legend of Boomer Lav, for being selected to be shown at the 2013 Toronto Independent Film Festival.1069226_451951344904133_338395576_n

Pillow Talk

Zentangle® – Pillow Pattern

spinning their wheels,
clocks turn young to old.
belying promises made in haste,
in heat,
in love.

nitty-gritty do’s and don’ts close the day.
looking with pride, and wonder,
at what you’ve done.

eyes on tomorrow even in the black of sleep.
hoisting blankets over exhausted ideas.

arms and legs lie in wait to go again,
charge again,
into the arena of trains and boats and airplanes,
cars and carts and bicycles.
while the mind would rather rest it’s bones
on the soft, sweet pillow
so open to your touch.
