Glorious Work


…and Life begins when the heart is seen again, and opened.

A gathering of friends today at CELL Space to help recreate it – Mike recently took over the lease and has now begun making it into what it can be. If anyone can, it is he.

Seconds after I got out of the car I see Keno, who says he wrote a poem about me the night before – a poem of dreams, he said. I replied that it is the best kind. He asks about CultureFlux again, and I am still tentative. I feel that he is the only person including me who wishes that to start up again – all consuming, for so little that it gives back, but I can’t deny that beginning it hasn’t been on my mind, if only to get my blood pumping again. Still, there is a deeper desire to perform again.

Then, inside, letting Ruby off the leash to cause havoc with the other dogs, Shannon, Mike’s wife, comes up to me and says that she has been meaning to get in touch with me for this year’s Edwardian Ball – if I would join Vau de Vire Society as a statue with the others, this time creating atmosphere around the venue instead of simply on stage.

Gods, yes. Both nights.

Then, seeing Mike, I asked what was needed.

Painting. Why is it always painting? I loathe painting – but I was there to help, and at least this time, considering that – painting wasn’t so bad. After all, I was already walking on clouds…


Amazing what life will offer if you just show up for it.


Last night, for the first time in far too long, as my mind wasn’t letting me get to the sleep I so desired that easily, there was a notion. A notion that turned to a thought, a good thought that twisted itself into inspiration. Inspiration about a production I could create, then another idea, and another… so involved, so beautifully intricate, incorporating a collaboration between Bad Unkl Sista, Vau de Vire and myself, bringing to life my battle against death over the past years – making it art, making the ugly beautiful, hoping that it inspires. So very much work to be done before I even present it to them – at the very least an outline of the scenes…

But I truly believe that it can happen.


All it will take is showing up to life, and work.


Glorious work.


The Beauty of Chaos…

There are some new things brewing in CultureFlux, things that open this crazy thing up to entire new worlds – worlds of Magick, Mayhem, and pretty much anything that is able to float across the imagination and be shared with others, in any way you choose.
The new section is called (at least temporarily) Mysteries & Marvels, and it was imagined, formed, & created in pure chaotic joy – a place that has no name, no structure, no agenda, and is welcoming you to add your bizarre & twisted take on the world. Come on in and enjoy, slide me some things to add to it, and entertain your whims. (Trust your Lust!)
Also adding to content, under the “Art & Photography” link you will find a piece on an amazing artist named Stephanie Bolton, who creates beautiful paintings focusing on a subject that is dear to her heart – Belly Dancing. Come on in & enjoy!

Ahhh. *Exactly* what I needed…

After a while, the frustration of trying to schedule interviews for CultureFlux builds to a point where I feel that I am doing no less than betraying myself, and what I want this to be for you. It seems as if the constant trips to the hospital and various other things that I’m doing in order to keep rolling suck the little energy that I do have out is a full time job in itself.

(Why, oh why, can’t there be a medication that instead of saying “May cause Drowsiness”, says “You may feel really good and have lots of energy after taking this; not only will it take the pain away, but the cause of the pain, and you just may feel human for the first time in years.”)

Thankfully, however, I’ve found something that not only will fill CultureFlux with content, but content that I don’t need to chase people down for, consistently battling with their near impossible schedules to graciously spend a little time with me…

And so, my dear friends, welcome to a new section of CultureFlux! It begins with rare video Joe Frank, and will continuously be updated with things of interest  – and meanwhile at the same time, I have little doubt that it will also inspire me to get my ass back in gear and get the other things I have had planned for CultureFlux – the interviews, video, audio going again – the creativity that fills my sails with life.

So, without further delay… Mysteries & Marvels – The Beauty of Pure Content Chaos

I hope that you enjoy this new feature.
