November 2, 2007She is one of the greatest human beings it has ever been my privilege to know. She is loving, kind, honest, and has taught me so very much. I am truly blessed to have her in my life. And when I grow up, I wanna be just like her!
December 22, 2006When I introduced myself to her, I had an inkling, but little did I know what I had stumbled upon--what a fascinating spirit, what a beautiful woman, what a passionate artist, what a glorious friend. I am totally blessed to have her in my life, to talk to and laugh with and to share experiences. I can never thank her enough, for her many kindnesses.
October 19, 2004Cyan is an inspiration. And a hottie. And the best damn flirter I've ever had the good fortune to watch in action. She's goofy and fun and real and tremendously brave and sparkly, and I'm happy that she's my friend. And that all the boys have crushes on her because that means she gets invited over a lot.
January 2, 2004Such a beautiful and elusive spirit. She makes me laugh so hard that I cry and when she's not making me laugh she's showing me how beautiful the human spirit can be.
November 21, 2003This girl is one of the most genuine people I've known, and genuinely charming. She'll deconstruct your adobe hut and lay your bullshit at your feet. Then she'll help you make a compost heap. That's a fine line to walk, kids. I make her write testimonials about me because I am stalking her. When it comes to aesthetics, she's tops. And check out that midriff!
"Are you saying that I shouldn't feel bad about the starving children of Africa, the violence and injustice in America... [etc.]

Easy going, yet sensitive....
Not in a crazy way (well, maybe a little crazy)
Sybaritic, sensual, romantic
I have a twisted sense of humour and a very dark side, but I try to have fun in every little thing I do. I like intense conversations, but my main pastime is laughing and finding irony and beauty in life.

Did I really just spend an hour trimming my rug? What goes on in my brain that I think that's a good thing to do around midnight, when I really should be going to bed?Wed, May 21, 2008 - 12:10 AM permalink - 7 comments
How do I come up with these ideas? Did society teach me that?
What kind of a society teaches me that my rug needs to be trimmed? What's wrong with the shaggy look?
Is it merely because I paid $30 for a neatly trimmed rug, and then when it gets shaggy I feel I didn't get my money's worth?
If I had not paid so much for my neatly trimmed rug, would I have not minded it's shagginess?
What if a nice soft trimmed rug only cost $5, then would I not mind that it got shaggy so fast?
Why does it bother me to have all that shagginess when I look down?
It looks unkempt, messy and uncared for, I think that's why I mind.
Even if it had only cost $5, I think I would not like to see it so messy looking.
I want my messy life to be as cared for as I can reasonably see to, that is, I want to look around and see things looking neat. So maybe it's really a state of mind, trying to organize what I see, so as to feel as if I have some kind of control over my life.
And therefore a neat rug is a way of feeling happy and organized, neat and capable.
I think it has something to do with our extremely fast paced world, where we don't have time to truly keep our individual worlds nicely organized, so we do things to make us think so.
So do I need to worry that society is telling me I need to trim my rug?
Or do I need to worry that I can't keep everything in my life taken care of and that I'm covering it up?
Okay, now go back and read it literally, please.
I'm not talking about *that* rug!
I meant my bathroom rug.

This is an amazing band of wild gypsy music, full of energy and delicious fun sound.
Amnesia, this Friday the 29th.
I'll be there, will you?
I've been watching this over and over and over, and rolling on the floor with tears pouring out my eyes.Wed, February 20, 2008 - 2:27 AM permalink - 3 comments
Why is this so funny, you might ask? Because if I were a mother, this would be me!
Slightly squished version:
I was having a very lovely dream with lots of surfing a giant river that flowed up and down the streets of an unknown city. It was very uplifting, buoyant, beautiful and fun.Mon, December 3, 2007 - 11:02 PM permalink - 5 comments
We (I don't know who *we* were) stopped at a house where a stranger was very kind and generous, feeding and caring for us, kind of like the kindness of the strangers I met in New Orleans even though many were tired of the tourists. We hung out for a while, enjoying the company and delights of meeting a nice person, until it was time to go.
We walked out to my truck that was waiting outside somehow, still in a soporific warm stupor of a lovely dream, and I got into the truck.
There was Damien dead in the middle seat, with two of those identical condiment squeezy tubes, one yellow for mustard, one red for ketchup, stuffed in his mouth.
I awoke in a raging panic to realize that i had stopped breathing for a while, during the good parts of the dream, and this was my mind trying to wake me up to start breathing again!
Uh... thanks for saving my life, Cupcake!
I'll never look at those squeezy tubes the same again.
