aMUSing Monday - What A Girl Really Wants

I've always loved this animation by Nara Youn. It reminds me of how a guy can wear himself out imagining all sorts of things that a girl might want when all she really wanted was something that was right there all along.

Laughter IS the best medicine.

I would like to share this article by Jill Domschot for the edification of my fellow poets and fiction writers.

It is interesting to me that my brother, also a poet and writer, died from complications of his alcoholism. Sadly, one of his exes destroyed all of his work. Glad I gave up the sauce at an early age.

It may be true that a lot of poets and writers of fiction hole themselves up with their worries and their work, but a lot of us, myself included, enjoy nature and find a lot of inspiration in the world that surrounds us all. In fact, I really enjoy it when I hear a little catch of a conversation whilst dining out or taking a walk and that triggers the idea for a whole new story, scene for a story, or an entire poem.

However it is through introspection that the worlds that writers and poets build are born. Life is, after all, a series of emotional ups and downs. I think it's who you take along with you on this roller coaster ride called Life that matters. For me and the house (or world) my stories have built, I think I'll continue to invite the Lord to sit alongside me. At least if the darn thing goes flying off the rails I'll already be with my Maker.

Music Monday - Horror

I hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend for all who celebrated it, but... I have to scare ya now. So make sure you have your favorite blanket, stuffed toy, or loved one to help you get through the next few songs. You're gonna need 'em!

A little note about this first one:
The book this movie was based on was handed to me by one of my best friends, a sweet, young church-going girl who told me it was a good book. Now, I don't know if she was just trying to freak me out and wanted to get rid of the book herself or what, but I read maybe the first couple of pages and simply could not read any further. The book gave me a very bad feeling. I put it away and left it when I left home a couple of years later.  My father and I watched the movie and I will admit I had to keep the lights on when I went to bed for a long time after that.  I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. But I do know that I don't like the fact that they damaged Linda Blair's back when they were making the movie, despite her complaints the whole time. However, I do think Mike Oldfield is an amazing artist and I love this song, the whole album, really.

Mike Oldfield's Tubular Bells used as the theme to The Exorcist

The first time I saw Halloween I was over at my friend's house. Her boyfriend was there as well. We were all sitting on the couch watching. She was in the middle and her boyfriend and I flanked her. After a while I noticed that the space in which I was seated was becoming more and more narrow. In fact, it had gotten to the point that I was completely squished up against the arm of the couch. I suspected it was my friend and that she had gotten quite frightened and was simply hugging up against me in her fright. Imagine my surprise when she told her boyfriend to move over because they were obviously squishing me. I can't help but laugh about that to this day. I should have known better anyway, my friend is the kind of girl who giggles when she gets scared.

Michael Myers Halloween Theme (Dubstep)

This next one also makes me smile and giggle a little when I recall seeing it with friends, one of the same friends who squished his girlfriend and me against each other on the couch during our viewing of Halloween. That's because despite how scared I was it was a lot of fun watching him growing smaller and smaller and smaller in his theater chair with every new terror that entered the screen. However, that doesn't even compare with the fact that my own big man also grew smaller and smaller and smaller in his chair as he watched Aliens with the exact same reactions as my friend. Is it just me or are guys really cute when they're terrified? Okay, maybe not for real terrified, of course, but the movie going kind of terrified that makes even the biggest, strongest guys try to completely disappear in their seats.

Aliens Main Title Theme

What made the next movie such a memorable experience for me -- besides the creepy scare factor of it -- was the audience that I first saw it with. There were people who were literally jumping up out of their chairs and screaming with fright. It was one of the most enjoyable horror movie experiences of my life.

A Nightmare On Elm Street Theme

The next one is because I love clowns so very much. No, not really -- only the ones with the big, fuzzy, red buttons.

It Theme

This one's just because I think this is one of the most well written and portrayed series on television.

The Walking Dead - Bear McCreary - Main Title Theme - UNKLE Remix

And a surprise!

Well, I wouldn't want you to have too scary of an evening... Or would I? Mwah ha ha ha ha!

Barkticles - Be Good to Bees!

Hi! Sweetlips K. Beagle here again with something that I think most everyone, even cats, can get on board with -- helping bees!

As many of you already know, bees are finding it more and more difficult to survive in our harsh chemical laden world. Pesticides, herbicides, and many other factors are causing harm to the environment. Bees, like the sensitive canaries used to detect harmful gases in mines, are showing the effects of our reliance on mass produced chemical additives and treatments used on our home lawns and gardens, golf courses, and businesses.

Is the competition to have the greenest, most bug free lawn on the block really worth losing something as precious as our bees and other helpful insects? Where would we be without bees? Bees provide both food and medicine. They pollinate crops and help to keep our world a beautiful and healthy place to live. The least we can do is help them to thrive once again.

Just click the link below and it will take you to a site where you can help our friends the bees, and it's free!

So barks I, pawed --

Music Monday - Lacuna Coil

For tonight's Music Monday I offer the album Comalies by Lacuna Coil. I know I referred to their music as being haunting and, in some respects it is, but some of it is depressing, angry, sad. While I listen to their music, occasionally, I by no means endorse all of the content of their songs.

However, I do love the passion of their music and their voices are powerful and compelling.

The title of the album comes from the two words coma and lies put together.

The song listing is as follows:
1. Swamped
2. Heaven's A Lie
3. Daylight Dancer
4. Humane
5. Self Deception
6. Aeon
7. Tight Rope
8. The Ghost Woman and the Hunter
9. Unspoken
10. Entwined
11. The Prophet Said
12. Angel's Punishment

Cherish Update March 2014

ast year I set a goal for myself to publish my novel at least by the end of 2013. Here it is the middle of March 2014. Sigh. I can certainly come up with enough excuses, and good ones I might add, as to why I didn't meet my self-imposed deadline. There was a death in the family, for one, and two major, to me, financial setbacks.

But even during the hard times of 2013, I felt Heavenly Father's mercy throughout all of these "life moments." I also found myself inspired to write, so, actually, I don't have any excuses as to why I didn't stay on target.

It just goes to show that you never know what's coming around the bend.

I apologize for the delay. But the book has turned into more than I expected it to be and for that I don't apologize. I expected it to be a fairly straightforward story, but it has turned into something a little more complex than that.

So, what I'm going to promise is that I will do my best to complete it sometime in 2014. I want it out there yesterday! But I, and I hope you, will be patient and allow this to be more than a story that is rushed and unedited.

I know I did promise other things, though, and one is on its way, a surprise. Also, I had a contest in mind, but that fell by the wayside when I realized it could prove problematic in a legal sense. I will try to come up with other things that will be fun but, mostly, I'm just going to keep writing and get this thing done!

Thank you so much for your prayers and, I hope, your patience.

With love and warmth,
Lee Lane

Barkticles - Hollydogs

As a Dog I am very passionate about the well-being of my fellow Dogs, especially those who are in the most danger of being "put down" as it is called. You can imagine that, as a Dog, a Beagle to be exact, I consider it something more than a "put down," but I'll restrain myself and keep this civil.

Greyhounds as many of you already know are often used for racing. I don't necessarily have anything against racing, it's the killing and over breeding that bother me. Greyhounds are among some of the finest athletes in the Doggie World, but those who aren't considered fast enough are simply done away with.

Fortunately, at least for some, there are people, like the fine folks at Hollydogs in Hollywood, Florida who step in and try to help those dogs who are in need of good homes or sponsorship due to special needs.


It is my sincere hope that if you can spare it that you will help Hollydogs with monetary contributions or even an adoption.

And don't forget! March 30th is the Hollydogs Greyhound Picnic from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. All Dogs are invited, and their accompanying humans, of course!

So barks I, pawed --

Barkticles - Beagle Freedom Project

As many of my readers already know, I, Sweetlips K., am a Beagle, thus my surname of Beagle, of course. I'm sure you can imagine that I have a special soft spot for all other Beagles, but none so much as those who have been used for laboratory experiments. I'm sure you can understand how upsetting something like that would be to me, a fellow Beagle. However, it doesn't matter to me if you're even a cat because even cats deserve a good and loving home where they can feel safe and feel the green grass under their paws.

Sadly, lab animals seldom get a chance to feel green grass under their paws.

Enter the Beagle Freedom Project of fine, upstanding, loving human beings who help to provide homes for Beagles who have been used for laboratory research. It is my sincere hope that you will take a look at their site and, if possible, adopt one of these Beagles into your home.

It will be well worth the time and effort that it may take to get one of these Beagles conditioned to life outside a cage. You could be the answer to a Beagle's prayer.

So barks I, pawed --

Music Monday - John Doan

John Doan is a known Master of the unique and unusual Harp Guitar, who has breathed a beautiful, melodic life into this old-style instrument.

I'm sharing this music with you because a friend of mine introduced me to it and, having known about Harp Guitars for a few years, I was immediately taken with John Doan's technique and skill. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I do.

The following is a live recording from May of 2011 when John Doan took himself and his lovely Harp Guitar to  Austria.

Grab a pleasant beverage -- right now I'm enjoying some hot choc -- and relax...

Cherish Lost Gardens

The world is filled with both ancient and modern gardens; some of these gardens have been lost to all but memory but some have been restored, rediscovered, and lovingly brought back to life, such as The Lost Gardens of Heligan.

As you might have guessed by some of the content I've posted about my upcoming novel, Cherish, it is a very water centered novel being that the setting is in my home state of Florida. Some of my favorite water-centric gardens are right here in the Keys of Florida, nature's own gardens that is.

Dive the Florida Keys, Secret Garden and Camille's Reef, Tavernier, Islamorada:

With all that being said, today's blog entry is dedicated to gardens, particularly lost gardens, because it's Winter and my heart is yearning for Spring. I'm sure I'm not alone in this yearning, especially those of you who are in much colder areas of the world than am I.

 The Lost Garden of Heligan:
(A garden on the Tremayne estate in Cornwall. Around the time of World War I it began to fall into decay but has been gloriously restored.)

Ravine Gardens:
(This beautiful garden in Florida had once fallen into disrepair but was restored to its former glory and even improved upon through the efforts of the Florida State Park Service and volunteers.)

Untermyer Gardens
(A sad tale for this garden but one with a happy ending.)

Princes' Islands: Garden Treasures

 Keukenhof Gardens in the Netherlands:
(Neither lost nor forgotten, but I love them and hope to visit one day.)

May the beauty of all gardens both lost and found, wild and tame be with you no matter where you are.

Music Monday - Johnny Cash

When I was growing up my parents and older siblings were really into "the man in black", Mr. Johnny Cash. There was one night in particular that I remember when I was very little. My eldest brother stood me up on a stool so he and I could sing along with a Johnny Cash album that he had. It was a lot of fun and for a precious moment in time my brother made me feel like a star. He believed we really had something, a sound that could be a hit.

Well, I don't know about that but it sure was fun and a great memory attached for me to the Johnny Cash legacy of his music.

Family Search, a Free Genealogy Site

For anyone interested in Genealogy, is a free site. Genealogy is a lot of fun! As a friend of mine said, it's like solving a mystery.

Also, they can always use Volunteers, and anyone can become an Indexer.  If you decide to become an Indexer you'll be helping others to find information on their families and that just makes you feel really good inside. It's a great way to help others and you never know what you may find out about your own family along the way.
