  1. 64

    In honor of James Dean, I gave blood today. It is the 64th anniversary of his death. Please Remember...
  2. I’ve changed my plea...

    Guilty Guilty Guilty “When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then, and sometimes they die before they get around to it. You can't make them change if they don't want to, just like when they do want to, you can't stop them." ~Andy Warhol ~
  3. The Little Prince

    "Life itself is only a vision, a dream." "Nothing exists save empty space and you" ~Mark Twain, The Mysterious Stranger, Chapter IX~ "...In antiphonal azure swing, souls drone their unfinished melody...when did we live and when did we not?" ~James Dean in a letter to Barbara Glenn~ Sing me to sleep...
  4. Barbara, It Was Really Nothing

    "Jimmy could turn people off, and those who weren't his friends had little time and effort to spend dealing with it. "Of course Jimmy had his reasons for what he did." "Jimmy wasn't a very social human being, or a nice person to a lot of people, and some people approached him with a chip on their shoulder, trying to prove they would find what they didn't like in Jimmy. " "Jimmy was not good at reaching out, and you just knew that anything could be mistaken for a rejection. I felt like I...
  5. Whisper To A Scream

    "James Dean revealed the subtle light which rests so eloquently on everyone, and as we follow his sleight of hand, we wonder how it ever managed to be so elusive. Like everything intimate, remote and transforming, when all was nearly apparent, he disappeared, leaving only his iridescent traces. This was James Dean's magical capacity." "Stardom gave an indestructible aspect to "James Dean," but it was the deceptive ordinariness of his creation and the very casualness with which he adopted...
  6. Oh blue dreamers eyes...

    "I'm a serious-minded and intense little devil, terribly gauche and so tense I don't see how people stay in the same room with me. I know I wouldn't tolerate myself." ~James Dean~
  7. R.I.P. Alex

    My beautiful boy died peacefully this morning in my arms. I am shattered. He was in hospital all day yesterday. Bloodwork showed high calcium levels. This morning, x-rays revealed fluid/blood in his lungs. We did everything we could, but the cancer, which no one is sure where it originally developed, had metastasized and was pushing his lungs forward. This is all very sudden and I am in shock. He was fine last week. Normal acting, running around, chasing his brother, begging for...
  8. Sick Kitty

    This past week my little Alex fell very ill. He will not eat and he is very lethargic. He isn't interested in any of his favorite toys, treats or even a bowl of Tuna. He loves Tuna. He just looks at whatever I put in front of him and then looks away. On Wednesday I took him to the vet and she looked him over very well but couldn't find a thing physically wrong with him. He is drinking water, thank goodness, but I'm scared he's starving to death. She sent me home with a slew of things...
  9. Blow high or low high

    A sleepless night Beautiful moonlit sky Though shadows embrace As I fight to break free Flee to the car Speeding against the howling wind And the ghost of you Smiles as danger Grows near... Liquid dreams flow Mercury rises slow As the morning dew Wet against my ankles Is cold and crippling In the park where you left me A basket full of treats For you to keep...
  10. A Very Furry Christmas

    So, Christmas this year for me meant time to relax. I shopped a total of two hours the whole season - if that. I bought my mom a beautiful Mother of Pearl moon shaped pendant necklace (she's always referring to herself as a moon child, so...) a bottle of Chanel No. 5, and a few other odds and ends. I received many lotions, candles, essential oils, a pair of really comfortable pajamas, etc., etc. It was nice. Last night I gave my cats their stockings. This happens every year. Well,...
  11. Alex

    It is hard to believe that my little Alex is 11 years old. I remember the day I adopted him. He was sitting in between his two sisters just staring at me. Love at first sight for both of us! I picked him up and took him straight home. He was only six weeks old. When Alex was about seven months old, he started having terrible coughing spells. It really scared the hell out of me, as it would anyone, of course. I took him to the vet and he was diagnosed with feline asthma. The vet said...
  12. Past Due

    Lately, I have had very little interest in anything. There is a reason. Many reasons, actually, but none that I care to discuss here. All I can say is, this has affected my life profoundly. My personal life as well as my work life. Luckily, I don't really have a boss that I have to answer to. I work as an independent contractor; my clients are my own, but with that, I still have to show up and do well. It's not easy at the moment, and even though I do feel a little better these days,...

  14. Hey, Anonymous 5f6c06060e, pssst...over here!

    Sorry to continue on about Pete, but I feel it's important that you read this since you are so sure of yourself. Maybe next time you won't be so quick to judge? :rolleyes: Being a sufferer of great anxiety myself, I GET IT. But...can you see it in your heart? Can you delve so-low? Thanks, handy dandy ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From Pitchfork The Libertines Reveal Shows Canceled Due to Pete Doherty's Anxiety Dates will be rescheduled By Jeremy Gordon on September 14,...
  15. Back To the Old House

    I spent last week - all week - back home at the beach. Got to do everything that I set out to do and had such a wonderful time. It's not surprising that I've been homesick since returning and I cannot wait to go back again. I am planning on returning in July and August. I knew that I had been stressed out from the past two years or so, but I had no idea how much so until I felt relief from the dullness of everyday life here and forgot about almost everything while there. Ah - the waves....
