I’m no god. I’m no work of art. I’m nothing so paramount that I’d move you to tears….
I’ve been told that my tumblr is quite similar the work of Andy Goldsworthy. The thoughts that I pour out and the way that I weave words; the poetry and the photography. The raw imagery. The mistakes and the spelling errors and the imperfections of my recipes; the lists and the numbers and the minute obsessions. they inspire, if no one else, myself into becoming greater. More advanced. More powerful.
I’m using periods wrong; also semicolons.
The videos and the quotes. The darkness and the bright spots too. You’ve all been invited into this mass universe that I’ve created. And I’ve speckled each of you as planets all around my galaxies and nebulas so that you could make up a part of my personal community. I don’t think I ever received a birthday candle from tumblr the three years this blog existed…..
the URL must be synonymous to Jehovah’s Witnesses. yeah. Jehovah’s Witnesses are sweet as milk. a painful sugary drink. mmm gritty. I often think of reaching back and capturing, the compositions to read to my nieces and nephews as bedtime stories once they become school age. Or even to the unborn. So they’ll know what magic sounds like.
But that’s a bit pompous of me isn’t it? Quite. (insert monocle adjustment here)
well anyway…. eventually the sunrises upon frozen sculptures. And love letters that are written in the sand become forgotten grains under the footsteps of the moon. after while the fragile limbs of my artistry snap, break, and are transcended by seasonal winds….
again I’m no god. but i’m pretty sure my existence is pretty omnipotent.
Storytellers: SPECIAL One-Time Show Friday, April 19, 2013 8-10p $10 admission Featuring Andrew Carpenter of Apollo Live & Kriss Mincey of American Idol
There’s this incredible open mic family in Baltimore that I’m apart of and in 10 days we’re bringing the show back for one time only. If you’re not familiar with “Storytellers” and the awesomeness that it is - taste a lil bit of what we have here….
Andrew Carpenter has this meekness about him. His humility literally illuminates an entire room and the fact that I can call him friend is a blessing within itself. This is one of his performances at Storytellers singing a cover of “Beautiful Surprise” by India Arie.
I hope to see you there…
