Day 228: Madness by Missy


an irish blessing

may the goddess bless the two who thought that the glass bottle was just extra thick.
may the goddess bless the one who told them that 1pint 6fl.ozs. meant 22 ozs. total and not that 1pint = 6fl.ozs.
may the goddess bless with long life the family of sheep who allowed their lamby to be sacrificed.
(baa ram ewe!)
may the goddess bless those who did not eat the lamb...
& may the goddess bless those who did.
may the goddess continue to inspire paul hewson, david evans, larry mullen jr., adam clayton, and the entire house of pain clan.
may the goddess protect the winged creatures of the earth, the lovers and kevin barnes.

Day 224: Moxie by Missy


moxie is one of the greatest words... not used enough.

that's what i was going for here...
if you've seen this movie, you'll know...
you'll know...

Day 222: Mystical by Missy


i felt like i could've gone in a million different directions...
but while out today i passed by a yard covered with crocuses...
it seemed fairy-like to me...

it made me think of a poem...

She took me to her elfin grot,
And there she wept and sighed full sore,
And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.

Day 216: Mirror by Missy


i saw a HUGE mirror on the curb out with the trash today while on my walk... i went back later with my camera and an idea but it had been already been collected by waste management...
i think this worked out better than my original curbside idea! it was hard to choose a shot... they were all so good!
so crisp!!

Day 215: Micro by Missy


ok... this photo means nothing without my write up...
my favorite album of all time is bjork's, vespertine... can't be without it. i have all the dvd's to go with the record... the making of, the videos, everything... while creating this masterpiece she needed 'micro sounds and beats'... she wanted the sound of pussy willows bursting open, the sound of a butterfly emerging from her cocoon... and she got them!! with headphones you can hear all these delicate sounds and rhythms tinkling and crackling...
they are so important to the feel of this record...
it is perfect.

while strolling in my garden this afternoon, looking for signs of spring, i was inspired by bjork... i closed my eyes and tried to imagine the smallest things and their unheard voices... perhaps this is what the hydrangea buds sound like during the big thaw, the big warm up...
