Lilith Square Pluto natally, uh-oh

Well, I'm just monkeying around here with astrology and found this horrifying painting of a naked lady and a snake. Dark Moon Lilith stuff. Old news about transits in 2009 but oh well. Some other astrologers were trying to figure out Lilith and apparently serial killers or people who like to write about dark topics have strong aspects to Lilith. Back when I learned to do astrology no one was…

:: the pool of tears ::

from where comes the love,

comes the pool of fear,

the fright of interrogation,

guilt,

i hear.

from where comes the mourning,

late afternoon,

and evening,

comes the spirit,

and singing,

dancing, ringing.

i hear the bells,

the crows,

the chaffinch,

and it shows,

my hearing.

from where comes the whistling,

comes the pool of tears,

the laughter we hear.

WHY DO SOMETHING IF IT CAN BE DONE # 92

Art Finds a Way: Confessions and Celebrations of a Former Publishing Snob

 

First, the confession. For years--decades even--I've harbored a small, secret, but acrid judgement about the self-publishing world.  I confess this now, red-faced in front of my dear friends and esteemed authors who have gone the self publishing route. Please forgive me.  I'm confessing a dirty secret here and I've developed a new outlook.  And even you fine self-published writers with beautiful, well-written books have to admit that the self-publishing process has created a certain…

Banana Dancers

solid, but soft within

structured but flexible enough

to be bent or guided in 

new directions

there they were

all perfectly connected to each other:

banana stems soldered at the hip

like a can-can chorus line 

(with fruit to offer instead of a…

Sid and His Amazing Jacket

 

It was a Tuesday night, late December 0f 2003 when I first laid eyes on the jacket. There it sat, quietly, unassumingly on the chair near the front door. It was so subtle, blended so well with the furniture, that I missed it when I first walked in. It was not until our host, Sid Luft, walking with the support of a cane,…

"And So It Goes..."

Someone once told me that every step in the literary ladder has similar stresses, hopes, and disappointments — just at different levels. Before you’ve been published, it feels as if the world will be a better place and your life will be transformed if you just get that first “yes” to a submission. Then, if and when you get that “yes,” you begin to worry about whether you will ever get another one. If and when you get a second acceptance, you wonder if you can keep the momentum. And if you’re…

Slumber Party at my House

Well, let's just build a blanket tent in the living room, why don't we? Let's just tear the whole house apart while we're at it. And ask for hot chocolate. And resist bedtime. RESIST RESIST RESIST! Well. . . .

Mom hides out in the bedroom reading Anna Karenina. She (Anna) and her husband are not getting along so well. She's gotten herself into a fix. Meanwhile the upper-class Scherblatzsky (or whatever her name is) girl, is at the spa trying to get over a broken heart. Good…

How NOT to Write a Book.

1.If you think "you have it". Well, among 1000 people, less than one is a writer. The other 999 are wannabe writers. To Want it and to Make it, is as different as to Volunteer and to Have to. 

2. Because your best friend did it. It does not have to be that way. We sometimes become authors for all the wrong reasons. Because we are too famous and too rich. Because we are academics. Because we can afford it. Because we have all the right connections. Because we took lessons on how…
