meaning: "passages that deal with a single theme or idea, as in poetry"
(and not the more widely used definition: "a long, vehement speech"...i never give those ;)
an exerpt from "The Mindscape of Alan Moore"
"Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer certainly was a tremendous risk. It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark. But anything of value in our lives- whether it be a career, a work of art, a relationship- will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it, you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding. You have to do these things completely purely without fear, without desire. Because things that we do without lust or result, are the purest actions that we shall ever undertake."

WOW! It has been WAAAAAAY too long since I posted something interesting about my life, or the world in general. I think what's holding me up is a lack of batteries for my nifty camera. I have decided I will buy some today so I can include pictures with my posts, and so you can see all the wonderful things that I have been experiencing.
I recently purchased a sexy new amp for my sexy red guitar and rocked out with them 3 times last week! The first show was at C'est What? on Tuesday- AWESOME night. Then I was at the Boat for a VEGAN Rock fundraising event for the Toronto Vegetarian Association. The above pic shows how fun it was...especially the eating of scrumptious many vegan treats.
I am off to work for now...but will bring some batteries home with me...!!!
The only thing that makes me happier than creating something out of nothing, is making something out of something!
Restoring something old into new again is a passion of mine, and having spent the past year learning the art of upholstery, I have marvelled at how it is the epitome of such satisfying transformation.
But even a process as constructive and eco-friendly as upholstery creates some waste in the way of scrap fabric, cotton, and foam. Rather than see those materials go unused or tossed in the landfill, I have made it my mission to convert them into something useful, beautiful, and ultimately....UPLIFTING!
Welcome to my purpose.
