Held(,) dear.

Rip me from the spotlight.

The show is ended.

The backstage scene now begins.

My knees and legs unable to support my dizzy delirium.

Help steady my body.

The depths below begin churning as strange sediments begin to arise.

Let me.

I want to mine this precious mineral vein,

to see what visions will come.

Hold me(,) dear in my spelunking.

I feel weightless.

Perhaps, if you wrap yourself around me, we may float together.

{in the subterranean ether}

I fly off this edged state easily into deep space.

Tether and balance me.

I always seem to land safely

because I can exercise control.

Let me exorcise a lack of control and cushion me when I fall.

I will coo into your ear and call forth trembling, hopeful, goosebumps from your salacious, salted flesh.

I am fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer. With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I am excited to share. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

      1. I liked his songs. Another piano player with a very good voice.
        Thanks for putting up with me… The cat is lying on his back with his feet in the air… either he’s being melodramatic because it is so hot, or I am not as entertaining for him.

      2. Smile. I’m more a Neil Young kind of gal. I enjoy putting up with you, silly Barney. Sounds like your cat is “getting the vapours.” A melodramatic phrase, southern americans use when overcome with malaise from the heat. Give his head a little scratch for me?


      3. Storm just suddenly broke. 37°C to cool change all of a sudden. Thomas is a moop… and I don’t even know what a moop is yet ☺️ he has massive ear hair coming out his ears though which makes him look a bit like a rabbi.

      4. I liked that Neil Young song about the Needle and the damage done. I love that he has done a lot of work for people with disabilities.
        I like most music of his era.

      5. That song is from his album Harvest. One of the top five albums in steady rotation in the house of Casey. Start to finish, a masterpiece. He always seemed to put his achievements back into the service of others. His back was so bad at such a young age, he often had to play sitting down.
