heaven or hell

it’s probably a big mistake to be pressing these keys right now
there are so many things pressing inside my chest
is it possible to come out of this
as one person with one dream
when everything leading up to the dream is fantasy
the impressionists began as an anonymous group
maybe I could be unknown
a founding member of the “what the hell” group
we could laugh and never care
about anything until we have to
and at that point we’d only need worry about two options
no more than that
heaven or hell
I’d simply select
which ever one has the best wine list
and maybe a tattoo parlor

    • Morning John.
      Sometimes what happens for me at least, is this-I pull a little thread from something I’m feeling and then I let ideas unravel. I honestly might be feeling some of what I write but then I bully these thoughts to create something more interesting (or at least I hope is more interesting).
      also to be quite honest, my little world over here has gravitated into a new “normal” – lots of senior family member ‘caretaking’ and this can be a little bit stressful at times. I can handle it, with a smile, but sometimes I just want to crawl into my studio and hide;)
      lol, John – this is probably more than you wanted to know;)
      happy weekend

    • you know i’ve designed many a tattoo
      for people
      i’ve yet to go for a fleshy image myself
      who knows one day but for now and probably forever i’ll keep all my personal tattoos on my brain and inside my chest;)
      have a lovely weekend


  1. Sometimes I wonder if we all really do wander in the same regions of the world and the ;sphere… and the cosmos. Our experiences similar and the words that come through them are amazing in the uniqueness and the same…
    In any case, another well done one under your belt.


  2. That sure is one beautiful looking Monster AnnMarie! Great writing as usual! Good news I got some sleep finally last night! woo hoo AnnMarie=Number One! 26 Woo hoo’s for AnnMarie today woo hoo! Hope you are having a spectacular weekend full of joy and happiness!


  3. What works for me is learning to laugh at myself in situations I create and then living with the consequences of how I get out of them. πŸ™‚ Hang in there Ann, it’s all temporary!

  4. No mistake, no fantasy, no tattoos.
    Am I the only one who’s noticed that you’ve changed your header? It looks great, AnnMarie — so does your new studio. Beautiful space. πŸ™‚


  5. LOVE the new header! Is that your new space?
    hmmmmm I’ll join your “What the Hell” club if you’ll join my Rejuvenatement club! πŸ™‚
    Here’s the advice I keep listening to as life changes, twists and turns — “Normal” is only a setting on your dryer! πŸ™‚
    Is it UNH for your daughter? When will she decide? We are definitely hopping on the train and meeting when that happens! πŸ™‚


    • yes, that is my subterranean dwelling-nice and bright near the Bilco doors
      I might retake the image to place our little Dachshund, Mojo on the table-he would add a touch of artistic cuteness;)
      lol- I like the “normal” – though – we recently purchased a new washer and dryer and these appliances rival NASA with the bells and whistles – the “normal” on these machines is nonexistent πŸ˜‰
      and yes! Caroline has chosen UNH!
      and yes! we must definitely train hop!
      and yes! I will join your club πŸ™‚

      • Hurrah on many counts!
        Stay in touch RE when you are going to UNH and might have time for a β˜•οΈ or a 🍷. It is the 5th stop from Boston’s North Station on the DownEastern Amtrak – and North Station is a 5 minute walk from our place😊
