A fine poem by Dean J Baker…

I don’t subscribe to beauty’s genetic accident, that fuel
On which the world turns when undisturbed by sentiment’s
Arrid heart of drama and real tragedy without awareness
Fables guarantee a thread to follow, amplified to please
All the hollow hobby horses going nowhere again, your
Cruelty is not rare but ordinary, average and everyday
Turn your head this way or that, whatever you’re looking
At does not look back, luckily for those who don’t wish
To be judged as they do beneath their pretensions and grandeur
Those with riches are no different than you and the neighbor
Over whom you hold reins of strangling details: you leave
And travel exotically, lysergically staring down Medusa’s hair
The experiment has gone wrong without equivalency being
Any concern of anybody you ever knew or could see, drifting
Toward a destiny you still tell yourself you…

Life is hard… but, life is also great!

- “Just how hard everything is. Keeping my head above water on a daily basis is my biggest challenge, but no-one ever says anything. It’s as if we’re expected to sail through life – through school, achieving high grades, and then manage to do well at university while somehow make a name for ourself so that we get a decent chance at a job we might actually enjoy. What’s wrong with the fact that I don’t know what I want to do? Why does no-one ever tell us it’s okay to feel sad?”
One of my favourite books is titled “The Road Less Travelled” by M. Scott Peck. The first sentence in the book is: “Life is difficult.”
Peck then explains that once you accept that life is hard, it no longer becomes an issue that it’s difficult. He says: “Once we…

Check out a great $28 dress!
I would have to say that 90% of the time I go into my local fabric store and just buy fabric with no real project in mind. Sometimes its because they are having a buy one- get one 1/2 off sale. Or sometimes it’s because one of my favorite designers, like Leah Duncan or Joel Dewberry, have released a new collection and I want to get it before it’s gone. But on this particular trip to Five Eighth Seams, I saw this pink fabric with gold dots from Michael Miller’s Glitz collection and I knew exactly what it was meant for. And why is that? Because it looked exactly like the fabric I recently saw in this Lilly Pulitzer dress:

I made this comic for a very nice person, Joe Wilson who creates great short films. Joe is creative and supports me and gives me advice. You should do the same for him, especially the advice part, he wears black socks with sandals. FT :P Here is his link:
For a laugh and a tear, try this on for size. Omgoodness!

In the YouTube video description, Hull wrote:
“With so many covers of Let it Go coming out, people may forget the original Disney magic that this song has, so what better way to preserve that magic with other Disney and Pixar characters singing the song! So enjoy this Disney and Pixar Mashup!”

A new blog, but delightful nevertheless. Check out FASHION and FISHING.
I’m sure my friends must think that I have moved away. Or possibly that I am out traveling the south of France, eating croissants with men named Jean-Pierre or Francois. But the fact is, I am right here in Charleston. The beautiful city of ours with its beaches, fine dining, oyster roasts, and tourist attractions there are countless things one could get into. But instead I have been doing this:
Work, work, work. My 9 to 5. My hell on Earth. Just kidding it’t not so bad. When you’re knee deep in tracheal secretions or helping someone learn how to swallow their saliva, the time goes by fast. But I do burn out really easily. And seriously as of lately my only work ambition has been to see if I can re-arrange the office so that no one else in the room can see my computer monitor.
