Inspiration

Statue of Archangel Michael over the main Gate of the church Sankt Michaelis in Hamburg Germany

After struggling with writer's block for almost a week, I have had a breakthrough. My second novel is an interesting one dealing with religious beliefs, Archangels and Angels of Death. Sort of like what does God and Lucifer do to entertain themselves after everything has been set for centuries?
I am not trying to write the standard Da Vinci Code ideal either. My research and own personal beliefs and ideas will be what fuels the storyline. Humor, romance, typical scenarios infused with a very interesting array of characters via the Bible, Torah, Koran and many other texts. I have only recently discovered the beauty that is John Milton's Paradise Lost. Which after reading a very truncated version, reflects pieces of what I am trying to do. Very exciting!
Music, as always, is the biggest thing that helps when I hit roadblocks.
Dead Can Dance - The Host of Seraphim is a song that has been weaving the story through, setting a very specific theme. The video I have attached is a clip from the movie Baraka which has no dialogue, but is a feast for the senses. The images you see are incredible and you can actually view the whole film on You Tube. MGM had given them the rights to upload it so it is a very nice gift to the world. A very spiritual journey in a sense and so worth viewing.
Everyone stay cool :)

Cheers!

A little bit of this and a little bit of that

I have made a painting for our living room where I sewed a dress onto a canvas. Now I need pages from a decadent book, get them on there and the piece will be complete. I will take a picture once it is done to share. It was a lot of fun to do and if I knew I could make money selling them, I would do more.

We have decided to forgo a built in bookcase in the living room. While I love the whole idea of some accent piece in the living room,I would rather it be the books and art work, not the bookcase/media center that would be holding it. So now we are looking at furniture similar to this console from Ballard Design. Just at a much better price.

This display from the blog Chic Provence makes me want to grow wisteria for the rest of my life and only dine under a fabulous pergola.

Theresa Burger, I love, love, love your resin rings.

Ahhh, one of my favorite all time songs by Dead Can Dance called Indus. It is sublime.

I AM ON A MISSION

And not necessarily a wise one. Human beings like to collect things. Whether it is comic books, Dr Who paraphernalia, baseball cards, guns or weird cat art, for some reason we have a need to hunt and gather. I am not very good at things like Ebay or Craigslist. I basically suck at bidding and I get lazy about checking every hour for the possibility that someone may have posted/listed something I want.

Until now.

Recently I have gotten a bee in my big ass bonnet to locate a great deal on the following furniture pieces.

Hoosier Cabinet

I want this awesome piece of furniture for my kitchen so I can eliminate most of my upper cabinets and have a place for flour to sift out of because that would make me so cool. Some are wood, some are retro metal, all that matters it is a multi-functional piece of art that would be amazing to own..

Pie Safe


I don't make pies and that is irrelevant to my desire for one of these.

Vintage Ice Box

Where would I even use this? I don't care. We can addres…

Irish pensioner living in a 280-year-old cottage with no modern conveniences

Irish pensioner who lives like we all used to back in the day. Good for her. Read here.

Sometimes it is best to disconnect. To get back to the land, to remove ourselves from the news, read a book, or just take a walk and be present.

Side note: I have to admit that running water and flush toilets are my most favorite inventions so camping is clearly out for me. :)

Have a great day.

Cheers!
