Krewe du Poux Lundi Gras medals and St. Michael hangin’ out in my studio.
FRACAS de Robert Piguet. Beloved forever, though I am only rarely ever feeling quite feminine enough to be up for wearing it! It requires garters & stockings, you know.
Altar bouquet to honor my writing space today, elderberry rose decorating the air, golden light coming on…
When I was 17, my dear friend Nicole threw me an amazing birthday party at her house! Here we are, incandescent goth infants with perfect skin and bad habits. Throwback Tuesday because this is too cute to sit on until Thursday & also I don’t care about that shit. I feel super duper blessed to have so many close friends from my errant youth still fulfilling such an active and vibrant role in my life now! Friends forever.
Ruminating on the concept, lately: JOY - Expanding Human Awareness by William C. Schutz. Based on workshops conducted at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur in the late 60’s. This book was found in my grandfather’s library.
The Way to Start a Day - a beautiful book by Byrd Baylor & illustrated by Peter Parnell. A magical treasure from one of my favorite shops in town, Take Heart on 11th (they stock several wonderful books from this 1970’s collaboration team). I have been thinking about how I greet the sun in the mornings now - moonpuppy wakes me up fairly early these days, so I get to see the how day begins!
Dear stickbugs: I’m sorry if I interrupted your sexcapades & the proliferation of your species by scooping your still attached bodies into this abalone shell and placing you in the garden, but I didn’t want you to get stepped on inside while your lovemaking (is that what you call this?) was going on. I thought at first that the little dude was a baby stickbug riding on your back, but then I figured it out. Good luck with everything. Hopefully no birds snacked on you mid-coitus!
A late September offering from my garden… Go zinnias, go! Colors bustin’ out all over the place with all this rain.
Words can’t possibly do justice to all the wild, uninhibited, beautiful, ferocious, badass, completely marvelous and massively fun collective moments and people that created & participated in making tonight a night to remember, and hopefully experience again! Goddamn. Thank you especially to everyone that traveled all the way from New Orleans to remind us how it’s done and get nasty and (not just little) freaky. We love you. Thank you everyone who was courageous enough to perform, tantalize, titillate, amaze, astound and enrapture us all this evening. ¡Gracias tambien por los erecciones! #bdhobb #forever
