Deep In The Night

It's hot. The Alabamian heat. I spend my days in a dress that doesn't fit properly. It's nothing but cotton, the top half too low exposing too much, the bottom half of the dress poofing out from the ribs, not the waist. Hips from the ribcage. White shoulders, messy hair. An odd collection of self. Headphones. The cord is long. I wrap myself in it and unravel myself again. Floating. Bending. Stretching. Reaching. Finding. I withdraw a little from this world and enter back into my own. Inhaling my skin, absorbing my reach.

The music washes over me. The only connection to anything out of this orb. Beautiful. Something amazing. My friend Mary's voice. Like an Angel. Singing to her mother. Singing to herself. Singing to the boundaries of her own orb. Will we bump in the night? But we have. We have transferred through each others orb once while not looking. The echo of her voice in my ears as I twirl, perhaps her feet now dancing in wet paint. Travelling through space. Orbitting. Getting closer to Jupiter. Smiling in the safety of it. Just travelling through time on our own. The destination made similiar by the love of it.

Sometimes I don't want to come down.

Such mundane things, such as sleeping.
Such as life.

Sleep ought to be more rewarding if you dream while you're awake.
Oughtn't it?

I don't want to go to bed tonight.
It's too beautiful in this womb.
I'm going to stay inside my painting until dawn.

Damn you're so pretty!! I love the second one. You should paint that, all streaky in the back and great focus in the middle - brilliant!

OK - daily haunts. It's part of the new blogger. After you sign in to blogger you'll see options on your blog page in the top right corner. Click "customize" and you'll go to a page that allows you to edit your layout.

It's arranged in drop in boxes called elements. Click on "Add an element" and you'll you'll get a box that asks what kind of element you want. For links to other pages use "Link list"

When you click that it brings up another box, fill in the details - Title - Daily Haunts or whatever you want it to say, my page's url, my name and then "add link" you can have as many as you want so add on your other art projects to promote yourself, other friends or interesting places you love.

To break up the lists, like I have Daily haunts and people I adore I just use a separate element, new title, and stack them.

This concludes today's tutorial on Blogger page management. *biggrin*

You'll be tested on this information sometime at my leisure so get studying!
