Holly Horrorland's "Vampire Soire" 2015

Secret Invitations sent out to those who hold February 14th in their special way!

Epiphany and Jack are awaiting the neighbours to arrive, eager to settle their curiosities.

Yes, the romantic styled house has been empty for many generations, it is exactly the 
cozy comfort that Epiphany is missing.

Preparations are complete, the name plates are placed on chairs.  Bats fluttering in their bellies,
Epiphany & Jack sigh deeply, pour a special blend and wait for the Vampire Soiree to begin! 

  My nasty sweetheart, you glow!   Blood pudding and rare blend vintage, a setting
      fit for a Count! Jack proudly remarked.

Holly B Strange, is so lovely to include us this year, and Emma, devilishly suggested such
 a gifted artist for the name cards, whispered Epiphany.

Jack pushed his chair aside and scooped up his partner.  " I need to whirl you my dear, 
Twirl and of course, Dip"!

Let us all spin and twirl , all woes be gone.   Thank you to our event planner, Holly and
Sophia Rapata for the amazing cards.

"Bleeding Hearts Day " Challenge 2015

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". 

Early years

I value this opinion !!!!

Art by Patti Smith

Her admiration of Baudalaire and William S Burroughs,  shaping and validating

   William S Burroughs " one of the most misunderstude artist of the last century, lunatic to revolutionary " 
Huge praise in my opinion.......

Well let's get this party started!   Creative Coupling for my lifetime!  

Patti wrote the song/poem and Bruce launched! (Springsteen)

"Because the Night" 1977

Patti and dear heart Lou Reed.  "Walk On The Wild Side"

Bob Dylan helped his fellow poet sign her first album " Horses" 
Infusing rock with poetry kept this literary art form alive....awhile longer!

Tom Waite & Patti Smith.  Creating Chaos! I'm sure!!

Gifted hearts search for kindred hearts for eternity
Trusted creative coupling of true friendship

First Love and Discovery of a true " Bleeding Heart"
"Just Kids".  Robert Mapplethorpe
Story of the most creative time in my lifetime.

How Do You stop the Blood?

Wrap a Bleeding Heart in money, and tell it how to dance. ( this is mine)

Thank you all for visiting and all your brilliant blood you shared!   I have and will value each 
Of your stories.  A thank you gift will be sent to all who have given to my challenge.
