Come to me! Take me in your cold embrace
and dance with me to the Gavotte, and the Minuet
on the earth, with a soft breeze brought by celestial winds
In music that fills my soul until the moment when we depart
this earthly coil to that destiny of which the two of us will only know…


Come reach for my hand!  I shall willingly
whisper my secrets to you, of which you know
And I shall  seek to unburden my dark and heavy soul
that I may finally find freedom and peace at last
Taken into your arms, for all of eternity…


Come dance with me!  Meet me on the dance floor and
push through to the empty space that has been left for us
As the cloudy night makes way to blankets of darkness
and the music finally reaches the final strain, I beseech you
Ah Death! Though I fear you not, come not too soon, for I am not quite ready yet...

Opus 1 by meregoddess
Opus 1
Acrylic on Canvas, 16 x20, fraught with mistakes.

I worked so hard on this.  Had some achievements, but a lot of mistakes.  I don't think I'm cut out for this painting stuff.  Perhaps I'm too critical, perhaps I'm just finally realizing my lack of ability.  

Here are some (not all) of the things I learned while spending over 40+ hours attempting to paint this:

° I can't mix paint.  (I waste more than I use)
° Trees get a lot smaller at the top than the bottom.  They don't get smaller, then bigger then smaller.
° I can't mix paint.  If I mix a color I like, I better mix enough, because I'll never be able to match that color again.
° When painting the leaves on the larger trees in the front, DON'T cover the leaves of the trees behind them.  It kinda screws up the perspective.  
° I can't mix paint.  (I'm never sure of the right consistency it should be, and a lot of time wind up with all the paint on my brush instead of my palette)
° Tree trunks can angle left or right, but they don't CURVE left or right, I don't think.  That just looks funny.  
° I can't mix paint.  Did I mention that?  At this rate I'm going to go broke trying to learn to paint just trying to learn to mix the stuff.
° It's better to highlight the leaves with a fan brush than the same kind of brush I used to paint the leaves to start with.  
° Pthalo green really sucks for a highlight color, even mixed with white or yellow.

I'm going to try and paint this painting again.  Or as similar a painting as possible and see if I can correct some of my mistakes, too many of which to mention here.  I'd appreciate any comments or suggestions for my next attempt, which hopefully will be better. (If I have any paint left)

Don’t You Just Hate it …

When people don’t get your answering machine message?  Mine says:  “Next on Mere Radio 98.7 FM we will be hearing the music of Ludwig Van Beethoven, his Beep Serenade in C-Sharp Minor.”  I constantly get messages saying “Hey, I didn't hear any music…”

When you offer someone a sincere compliment on their mustache then suddenly she’s not your friend anymore?

That companies think we’re stupid?  I mean SERIOUSLY stupid?  I saw the following on a Frito’s bag in a grocery store: YOU COULD BE A WINNER! NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  DETAILS INSIDE.  Really?  C’mon, really??

That when you get married, you find that men think it “beneath” them to clean a toilet?  It’s YOUR job to clean it.  It’s okay for YOU to scrub it, wash it, and clean the walls.  Yes, clean the walls.  They don’t believe they pee on the walls, but we know they do, don’t we?  But NO, they can’t do it.  They do all the “heavy” stuff so we can have the “privilege” of cleaning the toilet.  We could live in a condo, with a yard boy, have groceries delivered, have a metal roof that never needs repairing and buy a new car every year, and they STILL would not clean a toilet.  They’d do their business in the woods first.  Don’t you just hate that?  Me? It just flat out pisses me off…

When you’re in a hurry, breaking the speed limit, practically flying down the highway and you get behind grandma’s uncle and have to pass? Don’t you hate it even more when you get caught at the next red light and grandma’s uncle pulls up beside you?

That vegetarians say they refuse to eat meat because they believe all animals have the right to live, but then they turn around and eat all the animals’ food?

Don’t You Just Hate It…

When you have a boyfriend who has dyslexia and a sex manual?  He’ll spend the better part of an hour looking for your vinegar…

That a good man is hard to find?  Put it in perspective though.  A good midget is even harder to find….especially in a large crowd. 

That life is going to be so easy for those people born in the year 2000?  They’ll never have to fumble with the math to figure out how old they are…

When you have to tell prospective employers that you worked at Hooters?  30 years ago?

When astral projecting over a slow moving turtle on the highway while lucid dreaming, thereby avoiding bad karma and reducing your chances of coming back in the next life as a sea turtle with a 1 in 25,000 chance of making it to the ocean and surviving, you get lost and have to stop and ask for directions? 
(bet you had to read THAT one twice)

That when you’re drunk it’s difficult to say proliferation, very difficult to say specificity, and downright impossible to say “Sorry, but you’re really not my type.”  Okay, that’s an old joke, but dontcha just LOVE it?

Don’t You Just Hate It…

That people will add your deviations to their favorites and not comment on them?  I mean it’s nice and all, and it’s flattering and much appreciated that people follow you and add your work, but d.a.m.n.  I myself sure would like to know WHY they liked it enough to add it to their favorites.  It doesn't have to be a long drawn out explanation, just tell me SOMETHING.  Otherwise, I feel like it’s a pity/obligation fave…

When you tell people the joke “How long is a Chinese name” and they don’t get it…

When you get Chinese instructions on purchases?  I got instructions on some Christmas lights I purchased that said FOR INDOOR OR OUTDOOR USE ONLY.  I sat there for an hour racking my brains trying to think of some place besides indoors or outdoors that I might have used them…

That it is so hard to tell puns to kleptomaniacs because they take things so literally?

When people tell you puns?  It takes a certain sense of humor to appreciate a pun.  So go ahead and hate me.  I’m going to share with you one of my favorite puns:  Mahatma Gandi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet.  He also ate very little, which made him rather frail and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath.  This made him what was known as a super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis. 

Well, if you’ve made it this far through journal, I’m going to punish you.  Yes, punish you by leaving you with one of my favorite jokes of all time.  If you have had enough already, please feel free to stop reading here.  Otherwise, read on for one more joke:

A patient in the doctor’s office explains to the doctor that he has a problem, but he’s embarrassed to talk about it because he is afraid the doctor will laugh.

The doctor assures him that he has been practicing for 40 years and has seen it all, that there is absolutely nothing he can tell him or show him that he has not seen before and he promises he will be professional and not laugh. 

The patient, feeling reassured, then proceeds to remove his pants and his underwear showing the doctor a man’s most “prized possession.”   The doctor looks, and sees the smallest “prized possession” he has ever seen on a grown man.  Why, it was no bigger than a thimble. 

Try as he might, the doctor can’t help himself.  He breaks out into peals of uncontrollable laughter until tears roll down his face.  The patient is mortified.  Finally, the doctor gets himself under control, apologizes profusely to the patient, and asks him what seems to be the problem.

The patient responds “it’s swollen.”

The doctor had to leave the room.

The person, you can't live without
Often is one, you couldn't live with, either
It is easy to want what you don't have
When you don't have it
And hard not to want something else when you do
So the big love in a lot of lives
Is the one that got away...

Journal History

My Music



I wrote my own arrangement of an old song, and would appreciate it if you would take a moment to listen.

There was an old black and white movie starring Bette Davis called "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" and there was a music box that played a beautiful melody. I looked everywhere for the music to this song, but alas, it was out of print. I wrote my own arrangement for orchestra and flute, adding a counter melody of my own. I would love to know what you think...

I have given the lyrics the melody in the box below:

Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte (Lyrics)

Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
Charlotte, don't you cry
Hush hush, sweet Charlotte
He'll love you till he dies (Chorus)

Oh, hold him darling
Please hold him tight
And brush the tear from your eye
You weep because you had a dream last night
You dreamed that he said goodbye

He held two roses within his hand
Two roses he gave to you
The red rose tells you of his passion
The white rose his love so true

(Chorus)

And every night after he shall die
Yes every night when he's gone
The wind will sing you this lullaby
Sweet Charlotte was loved by John

(Chorus)
