Sunday Sunday

I’ve been busy doing non art non internet life!

I’ve been clubbing with girlfriends, sitting on the beach at night with girlfriends, laying on the beach in the sun, waking up to storms with our youngest and watching films with our eldest…it’s been a lovely weekend.

Mark’s Birthday tomorrow…

Hmmmm the next blog will be my hundredth post on myspace…passed that point without ever noticing on all my other blogs…I also passed 1000 visitors this week! So I think I shall do the giveaway thing…details in the hundredth post sometime this week.

Big Kiss


The Dreaming Tree by Kalee on tailcast

I might still be a little under the influence…but I’m feeling bright and super zingy this (ahem) afternoon…(didn’t wake up until 12:10!)

Can’t go out though as it’s nap time for others in the house! so I’m babysitting and blogging.

Thought I’d quickly share the magical Magical Tree pic above…so many times I’ve doodled magical and wishing trees and this pic looks just how I imagine they would really look!

Kalee has some stunning pic in her gallery, hope you enjoy them.

Info blog!


I love my spaces and blogs…they all have different purposes and different friends…and they all make perfect wonderful Julia logic sense to me…Of course not so much to my beloveds and friends…So here’s the rough guide

The main three same content (essentially) blogs, of which you are reading one, and their differences are:
This is the oldest, plainest and easiest on the screen load time…you can only comment or message me here if you have an LJ account yourself.
The profile page has some old links and friends listed…you can give my a hug on the profile page!
Probably the worst page for screen load, this is the myspace profile page and I’ve weighted it down with badges and music and film clips and slideshow, friends to click on and art background…fun huh!
The blog page itself is no where near as much of a pain to load! I have my highest number of blog readers here on the myspace blog…I often send you a Big Kiss but I have no idea who you are!!
Again to comment or send a message you have to have a myspace account.
This is more of a pain to load than it used to be! (sorry) Because it is my centre of my little on-line-verse I have links and rss feeds and video bars of the things I like to keep an eye on…so if you want to know what I know that’s where to visit.
And regardless of what my mum and sister say you can post comments anonymously…without any account!…I just went and did it myself here.
So if you want to say Hi or make a comment without logging in anywhere or send me a message (comments don’t publish automatically, I have to read them) that’s the blog to head to.

The current new baby of course is tailcast, this is my page where the load time is good, but it might take you a few minutes to get the hang of navigating! You’ll find extra images, and definitely extra poetry there.

Animal Flowers

Here comes colour!

I actually woke up the other morning, not thinking about any of the special people in my life…or the chores to be done for the day…but about how else to play with my pens and paint together!

So !’ve had a go at glazing an area with acrylic before swooshing water around the picture…well it was an experiment, I tried it

I’m actually loving the vibrant green stems inside the deep blue of the vase… I might play with that next.

I’m happier with the cropped images, I think they’d make lovely bright cards or pictures.

Goddess Leonie!

Way way back in the mists of internet time…(I’m talking a whole four? maybe five years ago) I tired of my years of wandering and wondering and tried to set up home in that odd and mystical space.

SARK had a wonderfully colourful world into which I nestled…and there I braved up-loading some photos of my (rather large) doodles…all randomness and flowers. One day I logged in to find I had had a visitor, a visitor leaving me a lovely message about my picture, my poem and my doodles…that visitor was the wonderful Leonie

Until that point I had felt…well pretty much embarrassed about having put my pictures on-line…suddenly it felt ok. Off I went in search of Leonie to thank her, and found wonderful treasure, The Turquoise Journey, then Leonie’s blog… still full of wonderful archives.

Over the years I would dip in to The Turquoise Journey, sometimes daily, sometimes monthly, always finding treasure, often spending hours of Leonie led web time, and taking delight in her unfurling as an artist, gorgeous goddess and sacred photographer.

In November last year The Turquoise Journey suddenly disappeared, I checked back the next day, the next week, and the next. Come January I was overcome by the need to create some new space out here for myself, and as ever wanted to create a link to Leonie’s blog…but it was still missing…and I began to worry a little for Leonie…and I still missed her blog!

By February, maybe March I finally found it again, though it was still struggling a bit, having to be re-homed and re-launched…After her own wonderful journey in India, Leonie came back with gifts for everyone.

So this page is full of links, for those already loving Leonie that have lost her briefly in the move, and for those lucky ones about to discover her for the first time.

I shall add that there is a competition this month (one week left) and if you place a link to on your blog or webspace, or one of Leonie’s wonderful buttons, and let her know, then you’ll be in with a chance to win one of her lovely prints…I hearby forfeit my chance just to let you know that’s not the reason for writing this blog and to give you a better shot at it!

I’m taking this chance also to mention that I discovered today that SARK has braved the world of blog too and has a myspace! (Leonie’s in SARK’s new book Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper BTW!)

Real Life Artists!

I was in an artshop in Brighton today and bumped into two artists from my on-line life!
It made me really happy!

It gave more fuel to the fire, already lit by being on tailcast, that it would be lovely to have occasional Art Party get togethers in real life.

I say Hi! again to both of you, and that I hope we get to chat longer next time!

I just read this

I just read this short story and it’s so wonderful!
It’s so well written, so much is simply revealed with each tiny chapter…
I’m keeping it here to read again..I hope you’ll take time too!

Big Kiss

Walk the walls.

I am full of words
I like to flow with words and movement because it pleases me…it is a visceral pleasure, a physical pleasure…and i’m loving being physical.

These are the words.

I love you.

You make me whole and present and free.

You are an active and magical part of myself and I am grateful that you are here.

I am grateful that you show me the walls are not real, and I am ecstasy in the moment those illusions are melting in front of me.

You are the magician. The true shaman.

Beloved One, Beautiful One, Gorgeous One, You are the miracle.
