Bleeding Hearts Day is My time to appreciate the truly gifted. Unleashing admiration for
those who pump creative passion, bleeding endlessly , for eternity. I am fortunate to have been born while literature and speech was highly valued. Words, in books or music had power, emotion, purpose.
Events of time fade, but a word , a quote from a Bleeding Heart, takes you to that forgotten time.
Now imagine the gush, coupling two creative bleeding hearts. Discovering a book of poems
chosen by Patti Smith of works by William Blake, instantly had my veins twitching. The gifted ones,
Intrigue me . Why? well thanks for asking. Creatives live in a realm I envy. A society beyond
confusion.........until they mix with the masses.
One such Bleeding Heart, who palsates pure magic, is Patti Smith. Early, she
felt her gift. ( as did all I will and have mentioned) Focused and determined, her journey
would be eyes and heart wide opened. Her energy illuminated ( unaware ) during a time
of kindred gifted souls , who scorched this planet. These souls have visited earth many times
since the Big Bang, in different attire but tattooing the same heart felt message.
Art and Quote by William Blake
William Blake...........Romantic Age 1757-1827.London England Loved Gothic Art..
..critics referred to him
as an " unfortunate lunatic".
