1. It is easy

Yes, indeed, it is sometimes the easiest work of all! At such times the art flows almost without thought from the mind and spirit outward to the paper, canvas, piano, keyboard. But this is after years of training, years of practice and work.

Those years can be full of joy, but will almost certainly hold fear and insecurity, self doubt or even self loathing. Because the standard for the artist is set by himself.

Viewers may tell him his work is awesome or poor, but he is the one who knows when it is right. And we can be our own harshest critics.

2. It is fun

Yes, it is fun! Sometimes. As a visual artist my senses delight in the color and texture I work with. It is such fun to use my imagination to think up new…

Finally it’s happened! A member of the mainstream press has the intestinal fortitude to publish the carefully ‘kept secret’, secret about vaccines and vaccinations: They cause dramatic life-altering damage and more frequently than “evidence-based medicine” or “consensus science” owns up to or MDs, the medical profession, public health agencies and pro-vaccine acolytes acknowledge.

The UK’s Independent Newspaper published some extremely damning vaccine adverse drug reaction (ADR) information on May 31, 2015 that said:

In the 10 years to April, 2015, the agency received almost 22,000 “spontaneous suspected” adverse drug reaction (ADR) reports in 13 routine immunization categories including flu, MMR, tetanus, diphtheria and polio, according to a Freedom of Information response released earlier this month. [1]

However, the vaccine ‘ante’ has just been upped on vaccines’ adverse events/damages according to the Freedom of Information (FOI) documentation dated May 14, 2015, according to the chart below.

The vaccine with the most ADR reports…

A look into NERD IN A JOCK™

I wanted use my first entry to tell you how and why I started this site, blog, and what I plan to do with it.

I first would like to thank you for visiting the site, for the love and support; whether in my personal life or social media gateways such as Twitter. I am very grateful, excited about what’s going on in my life, and what’s to come. Hopefully we have had a chance to cross paths on other social networks portals and you already have a better understanding of what I am about and some of the things that interest me. Now that the site is up and running I wanted to provide you with more information about not only what those interests are, but also what interests you, the readers, and the wonderfully diverse individuals I have and continue to…

as promised, he was waiting to receive me as i exited the day’s last train

as expected, he resembled the half photograph, the one i treasured so deeply

as anticipated, our nerves initially spiked, then calmed as our bodies embraced

as hoped for, our first kiss was innocent, yet brimmed with passion and desire

as slated, he was a gentleman ~ kind, considerate, conversational and sweet

as dreamed about, our first moments together heated quickly, moved swiftly

as foreseen in my mind’s eye, inhibitions fell to the wayside, along with uncertainty

as visualized many times before, our bodies fit perfectly, our souls meshed ideally

as pictured, our merged bodies sated each other, fulfilling our individual needs

afterwards, as envisioned, he wrapped me tightly, held me closely,

kissed me gently, whispered tenderly,

embracing me tightly until i submitted to sleep…

…just as i imagined

remove all pretense,

shatter the facade;

hollow out who i’ve become,

releasing who i’m meant to be;

suffer me to sing,

allow me to dance;

provide a safe place where i can

think freely,

express honestly,

weep loudly,

or simply

sit quietly;

~

strip me bare,

let me be me

does she matter?

does she matter?

does it matter…

how your deceit has broken her,

how your midnight runs birthed her mistrust?

~

does it matter…

the demons in her dreams bear your name,

laughing at the fact she believed love would triumph?

~

does it matter…

your cosmic alignment has been shattered,

demolished, destroyed?

~

does it matter…

she tried to make life happen for you,

make a home for you, be a family to you?

~

does any of that matter?

does she matter?
