Friends….

Friends of the Secret Keeper, I am writing this for Marge – or, as many of you know her, Jennifer/jennifer kiley/jk – because she cannot.

Marge’s stay in hospital and then short-term care has turned into hospice care. I am hoping to bring her home when she is able – and when I can be sure home is the safest, most comfortable place for her to be.

Until then, we take it one day at a time, treasuring every moment we have together.

The posts she had scheduled will continue to be published….

Good energy, thoughts, and, if you are so inclined, prayers are welcome.

Thank you.

Shawn MacKenzie

 

 

Critical Cracks


Sur le Fil – Yann Tiersen  Music from the French Language Film “Amelie”

CRITICAL CRACKS
by j.kiley

A familial facial reflection
Unneeded outlandish rejection
Replacing precedent’s expectation
With a necessary deregulation
Turning creator into slave labor
Not given necessary fortification

Craving reliable idolization
Causing dreams of undeniable suffocation
Due to lack of continual unaltered representation
Of adulteration and uplifting sensational glorification
Spirit denied spontaneous cleansing and clarification

Unspecified non-existent qualification
Not mentioned in self-ordination
Just some minor miniature restoration
Portraying similarities to specification
Of a ghostly nightmares petrification

Pitiful the need for constant ramification
Being  receiver of nonexistent gratification
Smoked and mirrored reflections filling imagination
Tired of less than spontaneous regurgitation
Usage of words lacking depth and personification

Ideas are dying thoughts losing representation
Minds laying waste from bubble gum strangulation
Bodies losing life force removal of living sensation
Purposes and focus absent due to brains mortification
Spiritual awakening weakened minus enlightening stimulation

Over – Short Film

1-over-short-film-poster

Over presents a crime scene. During the course of 9 wide shots told in reverse order, we watch an intriguing story unfold. What has happened in this quiet neighbourhood? A murder, a hit-and-run, an accident? The reality is both profound, and deeply unexpected.”

Time in reverse. Watch as the views are seen backwards. Be diligent observing what seem like minor issues, reoccurrences and even the details of objects, which by themselves, may seem minor. All is relevant toward working backward for discovering the truth of what started the beginning of this way of revealing what is happening to the viewer. Me. Us. You. Pay close attention or you will miss. Weird. Quirky. Unexpected. Not impossible. Just unusual.

See if you ever come close to the actual motions that set this mystery growing. Watching OVER is like trying to unfold a memory in your mind – not forward from the start but backwards from the end – arriving at the beginning eventually. It feels impossible to do, but OVER does just that for you. – j.kiley

Michel Bisceglia – Jasmine

Lost lady

Lost lady playing
With the blues
Feeling beauty’s source
It’s sadness
It’s changes
It becomes unlike itself

Time moves
Goes through hell
Getting to the end
Traveling in unknown spaces
Requirements of change
Then begins again

How unlike incarnation
Before birth
Has been established

RANT of the Week

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us,
we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures,
have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender
hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion,
who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not
knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness,
that is a friend who cares.” ― Henri J.M. Nouwen

Private Writings: Chapter #84 — “A Momentary Pause”

Tuesday 21st April 2009

Dear Maria,

Homecoming for Me. Scottie is throwing me her most outrageous party to date. All is well  but only temporarily. Nightmares need to be traveled through to get to the lighter side. I look forward to working with you, Maria Lopez Falcón. I need time to  recover. With your help, I will find my world again and get back to my future time to come and enjoy my new growth. Working on my play and then my screenplay. That will be a tell all. The play about a transsexual in transition. Fun times. If we remember how hard it is to be alive.

The end is near. No more to write today. I want to join the party. So for now Good Night.

Su Loca Cliente
