Till The end of Time
Till The end of Time, until Time stops It’s Count. You Told Me that You would love Me. You told me that our love as The North Star would never die. The walks along The Bridge. Hands of Mother of Pearl, of Oyster Shell. The Water is considerate to our conversations. Never talking over us. It pays not attention to our scribbles of laughter or my tears of belief. But yet the naysayers to the corner stare with eyes of bitter and lips of sweet. We Pay them No Mind, Our Youth, Our in God We Trust, brings forth This Melancholy, This more than just Lust. From Canals we were born and into the grave We shall go. But in the meantime, on this night, in the days to follow and the years which will bring forth our Seeds of Root. On This Bridge our lives will extend. Meaning has taken on a new name. Kisses have grown up. What gets left behind will follow and what is brought forth Shall come up even Stronger. The Strength in your letters which came once per month. They brought You back to me. In my nights of dented pillows and soaked tissue. War is an unkind stranger to me. You say not to worry. That You know it’s weakness and that Your return will neither drag on nor be in vain. I try to explain this to A Two Year Old with blonde curls and blue eyes like The Aurora Lights. She scribbles her laughter and I scribble the ink across the paper, smearing the print with unsteady fingers of sweat. I haven’t the words they have left me. They wait for You back at the bridge on that night where we knew a love which most will never find. Many a time I’ve had to tear up the letters that I had written to You. The Paper which My Words are written upon is no longer plyable from the tears where Oceans run dry. But Yet at Our Bridge I Stand once more. And the words and the used up paper falls over the side of our bridge. My finger tips can no longer bear the weight of the heaviness to which my heart has now to for so many years. I stare at our little girl with blonde curls and blues like the aurora lights. She is no longer just two. Time has turned her now into a grown Woman of twenty two. I stare at the lovers Who pace their steps so evenly by. Unsure if they notice my eyes of bitter and my lips of sweet. Unkind War. A stranger I would never shake hands with. Nor shall I ever forgive You for taking My Love from My Arms. From My Sight. I See You for what You Are. Just A Taker of Lives. 10 fingers, 10 toes where 20 ought.

Mild wind

A kite likes it so
Much she poses like sleeping
In the sky-Mild wind.

Notes from the Artist:
I´am from Ensenada B.C. México. I started painting 2 years ago by myself. I consider me an autodidact artist always trying to do something new and cool. My style is most like contemporary, I try to make contrast in colors and concept.

The Pain Tears Open The Stitching, Once Again My Tears Fall Down Lethal as Acid Rain.
The Monotony in Life-lntent on The Material The Sexual Flings.
For I Am Mateless, No God can Calm Me.
No Individual but That of My King.
I long to Lye Rested for Eternity by His Side.
I live in The Knowing That Just Maybe This is A Possibility-A Laying Down Eternal by His Side.
Pen to Paper, I Tear Up This Paper, I Long for The Times Past When Life was Simpler When Love was More Purer.
A Need for The Other That was Irreplaceable.
An Unconditional Nurturing Where A Face can go Faceless A Body can go Bodiless.
Sex Provided An Escape…
And The One Whom I Am Sleeping with is not Thy Enemy.
I Want A Non-Frivolous Union.
I Want A Love That Loves back.
With No Postage Stamp of Return.
I Want A Love That I Cannot live Without.
A Love for Whom The Bells will Toll.
But, He does not Exist for Me.
The Angels Whisper Sweet Nothings for The Blessed Ones Whose Hearts are not Pining For A Love.
Pining For A Life in Pictures where Wrongs are Made Right.
Happenings Prelude Reason And When The Dust Settles; My Cowboy Rides Off into The Sunset without Me.
God Henceforth does not Exist so Therefore I Do Not

Featured Artist: Lucy Wilson – 100 Doodles, 100 Days
An experiment designed to inspire creativity and experimentation. Capturing life, love and happiness through the pets we adore. Every. Single. Day.

Notes from the Artist:
By day I am a 30 year old professional based in Auckland, New Zealand. I work in Communications and Marketing, and have done so for about 6 years.

I originally trained in graphic design, but a combination of life’s events and incredibly low confidence in my creativity led me away from that career path. It has been years since I’ve done anything meaningful in terms of my art, and even longer since I felt that what I was making had any creative merit.

I’ve recently been playing with the idea of pulling out the old paintbrushes and art supplies but, as a control freak/perfectionist, I suffer terribly from paralysis by analysis. More often than not I stop myself before I’ve even started.

But for some strange unknown reason, on 1 May 2013, something happened. I had an idea. 100 doodles in 100 days. A concept that would normally excite me in other people but I would never expect of myself. For some reason, on this particular day, the idea took hold and before I knew it, I had a set of pencils, a notebook and a facebook page.

From day one I had the support of my closest friends. By day two I had supporters from the far reaches of my facebook network. By day three, these connections had expanded to people I had never heard of, in New Zealand and overseas. Before I knew it, my own network were among the minority of my followers and I had lost track of the countries where my fans were located.

The project has a life of its own. It is exciting and inspiring. It is so much more than I could have anticipated.

Normally I am my own worst (scathing) critic, but I’ve quickly realised that even if I’m not happy with my drawing, there will be someone out there who connects with it in a personal way. To control my output is to limit those connections so I’ve had no choice but to let go! I just focus on the ‘feeling’ of the drawing and let whatever is going to happen, just happen.

So while by day I appear the same, now by night I’m a doodling fiend! It’s not very glamorous. Normally I’m just sprawled on the couch with trash on the tele and a pencil in my hand, but I’m making something new every day and I love it :)

It’s exciting!

Notes from the Artist:
My purpose is to create! I have a diploma in Fashion Design and I will receive a Certificate in Graphic Design in April 2014. I love to experiment with different mediums, yet recently I have been focusing on encaustic and digital art. Both offer endless possibilities and more importantly, I really enjoy the process. During my studies I developed a passion for studying the human form, which is my main subject. I love the raw beauty of the human body and the challenge of creating motion, life and proportions. I also love surreal and abstract art (my pieces usually feature some human characteristics). It can develop diverse connections with viewers. All forms of art have the ability to evoke emotion (positive or negative) whether they realize it or not and I like to be a part of that.

Notes from the Artist: I started seriously drawing when I was 13 back in the late 1970′s. I started painting in oils at the age of 14. I am self taught, with instruction from my dad who painted a little and I got to be a part of an art painting group in the late 1980′s for about 6 months.
I mainly paint or draw portraits, but I do like to venture off into fantasy paintings too. I do not paint just one genre, I jump around from Native American Indians, to portraits of dolls or animals..

Mistificazione Urbana – Andrea Vannini

Featured Artist: Andrea Vannini

About the Artist:
Andrea Vannini is an artist who created a new way of conceiving the urban setting, digitally enhancing photos, taken during simple daily walks. Andrea’s artistic project is called “Urban Mystification”.
The word “mystification” really represents the deformation of the surrounding reality, to his advantage, a true exaltation of fabrication; and it’s here that the artist molds the land through his eyes:He deforms it, he moulds it and he gives it to the viewer in his own way, without ever justifying his interpretation.
With this work, the artist wants to highlight every single monument, street, alley, park or building, and make it important with his visual tricks and his colors.
Each day, while walking the streets, we dive into infinite spatial tools, without being aware we are already, completely, part of them; we graze them, we touch them, we look at them, but we never actually see them: the artist not only shows us such tools, which until then were ordinary and boring, but makes them “different” thanks to his way of perceiving them. The urban landscape is transformed into a big game, where you can apply your own rules, your obstacles, your inner world and eventually explode in a whirlwind of creative madness.
Strolling through the streets that are part of his daily life, the artist creates his own visual frames, assembles them and builds with them a very personal story; Andrew is a film director, who already has his props, but that does not have its own script; here is where the artist dreams, invents, designs and changes in its own way such landscape that was previously stripped of its fantastic identity.
Urban Mystification defines the hope to look at the world in a different way, or better yet in one’s own way, enhancing the “usual” and making it “special”; just like life, that’s given to us all equally, and only our own free will can make it unique, joyful and worthy of existence.
The world is robotized, moves quickly and loves itself by looking at its own reflection in the sky.

Gold Heart – Americana Music


Post Provided by: country-cooperative.com


The five piece band, GOLD HEART, features sisters Analise (mandolin, 20), Jocelyn (guitar, 18) and Shelby (fiddle, 15). They have created a lot of appreciation and respect from the Bluegrass community. Their award winning instrumental ability and their astonishingly accomplished, harmony-laden music is rootsy, yet fresh and exciting!
