What can I say? I babble.

Update Image… probably appropriate that I did some updating while enduring… a migraine! Wow!  At least that is what the prevailing opinion seems to be… general neck pain and that evolves into bitchin’ migraines. Of course, my heart wasn’t in it, and I stopped well short of satisfaction. The plan is to have things go black and red behind him, show color to the bottom and left in front of him, but as you look closer and closer to him, things start to wash out and go grey, blending into the wave of black.  It’s a work in progress still.

I don’t know if a muse aids art or just writing. Doesn’t matter. Inspiration wanders by so you grab it.


The “Before” Post

After several days of this bitch-kitty of a headache, I decided I was going to try to bring the visual to life. Below is my mental image (more or less) of the damned riderless black horse as it thuds it’s way to me at onset. Thud-thud, thud-thud, thud-THUD, THUD-THUD… damn thing’s eyes and hooves glow and it is most certainly, oh so certainly frothing as if it were rabid.

It’s not “right”, as it is a work-in-progress, but it conveys the idea, I guess. What I want is for the area around that fell beast to just grow dark for it having even been there. The horse should represent the antithesis of life.

I guess muse would work in a very roundabout way (might even fit the definition of irony). Stephen King gave me the notion, the concept, years ago when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I was reading Firestarter which has to be one of his more endearing (if tragic) stories. Andy McGee ended up having these headaches after he “pushed” someone.

From Fox News… How cultured and polite are the hecklers these days!

Bush Heckler Arrested After Punching Wheelchair-Bound Girl

Thursday , April 24, 2008


A man heckling First Lady Laura Bush and daughter Jenna outside the 92nd Street Y was arrested after he punched a wheelchair-bound girl whose parents had told him to shut up, authorities said Wednesday.

German Talis, 22, was shouting obscenities at the Bushes, who were leaving the building Tuesday, when he crossed paths with Wendy and John Lovetro and their daughter Maureen, 18, who has cerebral palsy.

They had been in the audience to hear the Bushes talk about their children’s book, “Read All About It.”

“He began yelling about Iraq and Iran at Jenna Bush. She was waving at the crowd. I told the guy, ‘What are you doing? Shut up. This is about a child and books,’ ” said John Lovetro. “He was unperturbed. I said, ‘Get out of here! You’re being a moron!’ ”

The next thing he knew, Talis was allegedly punching Maureen, a fan of the first lady since meeting her in 2004.
