Is There Love on Mars?

You ask me if there is love on Mars

I tell you let’s love where we are

For here our love is not dead

Even if it is not bright and red

For here our love is not bound

Even if gravity keeps it on the ground

You ask how high is Mars

I tell you let’s love while it is not far

For here our love will not die

Even if it has no space shuttle to fly

For here our love will be standing

Even if we won’t require a soft landing

You ask can we breathe… Continue

When We Make Love

The air is thick with passion beating with a melody so sweet

My tongues famished for your flesh to lick to taste to eat

The atmosphere full of anticipation ears caressed by love’s gusts

My dreamy eyes pregnant from your beauty expanding from lust

The fresh spring of your nectar enticing my soul

The gentle sound of your voice causes my mind to lose control

Our shadows become one dancing in rhythm to our heartbeat

Pleasure flows through our veins from our head… Continue

Well, to my surprise I discovered I was nominated for The Black & White Spider Awards. One image was in the Photojournalism Category and the other was for Nature. To be…

Radcliffe Bailey at the High Museum in Atlanta

If you have the opportunity, visit the High Museum to see Radcliffe's Bailey exhibition Memory as Medicine. On view until September before it travels to Wellesley College in Wellesley, MA and then to McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, TX. A thought provoking and mind stimulating collection of artwork that I highly recommend.

Setting Boundaries When Your Home is Your Studio



Clearly designate the time of day when you are at work, and do not allow family members to interfere or interrupt during that period (unless the house is on fire). Be consistent. This includes pets, children as well as spouses. Walk the dogs before getting started. Feed the cats. Give them treats, toys, the catnip sock. Chances are your pets will learn to leave you alone before the kids or…

My Lady Africa

When the last rose is picked—I will still be your gardener. Nothing has ever enchanted my spirit –like this before. A crown of beauty and a soul to match. I would hear you sing in the morning...like a harp from eternity...Your endless strings I do strum. I do come to you across the never ending roads of despair .Most men would want a kiss—I just long to carry your dress. If your dress should reach across the ocean; I would drown in effort to be your Lighthouse. Even if time would end…and a…
