    #RIP to the Gods

    In memoriam Heaven is filling up quickly. xo Jesi The Cry of Atlantis By Jesi Scott   We’ve been left standing, bereft, surrounded by galaxies, distant on the horizon. Once again, the gods are leaving us, and there’s nothing to do but wait for their return. Somehow, it always comes to this: life brings us joy, shows us the way to truth, gives us real beauty, and we fail to see, to know, to experience; we distort and destroy. We beg for help and gods to show us the path, and they come, they teach their wisdom -we marvel at their language in music, art, words, kindness, love- We see…

    Feeling Less Than Inspiring Today

    It has been a rough day. I had said I would respond to the Very Inspiring Blogger nomination today but I am just having a hard time feeling inspirational at the moment. We all go through this, have these moments. What do you do when it’s your turn? I turn to music or silence, and poetry. So, I’d like to share something I read tonight that touched me, and reminded me of how we are all one and will never be alone as long as we realize that. I am dedicating this to 1000 Voices for Compassion. You see, self-compassion is just as important as compassion for others and, sometimes, it…

    My Texas Is Showing

    I am not a big country music fan, but I am Texan by right of birth, born to country parents and growing up, eventually, in the country. My father and his family were farmers and cowboys. My own Uncle David, whose birthday I share, was a rodeo cowboy for a while. And thanks to the Cherokee blood running through our veins (not that you’d know it to look at me unless you notice my cheekbones), he looked every bit the dashing cowboy with striking blue eyes. And just like every cowboy I’ve ever read about or have known, he had a problem with alcohol. Why am I bringing this up?…

    Still Working On Things

    Alright, my Lunatics! I have been working hard all night on getting the blog running correctly. I still have quite a bit more to do, but mostly it’s just going back through each post and re-entering each picture. I think I’ve figured out what was wrong with the pictures not showing up. I went back through my media gallery and I’m missing quite a few pics so I am going to have to go into each post and add the picture back into my media gallery. That’s going to take some time and I’ll work on that off and on during the week. Don’t be surprised if you don’t get…

    Monday’s Muse: The World Through Your Eyes

    Happy Monday everyone! I can’t believe how quickly June has gone by. I’m so glad. Summer used to always feel never-ending to me when I was in school. The days seemed to drag on until the day we have a pack on our backs and new school supplies in them. Actually, I loved going back to school. I loved (and still love) the smell of new school supplies: wooden pencils, rubber erasers, an unopened box of crayons. If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m a pretty sensual person (if by sensual you understand that I mean I’m very in tune to my senses). I love touching textures and I love…

    My First Live Shakespeare Play

    Tomorrow night I am going to go see this: It’s being performed over at a local university, Texas Christian University, along with The Comedy of Errors, which I have heard is fantastic but I will not get an opportunity to go see. I can’t wait to see The Tempest. It’s my first live Shakespeare play, and I’m going with My Girls, the ‘evil’ ladies I’ve only known for a few months. We have all decided to help support local performers and artists, and it gives us all the culture and friendship we are all wanting in our lives. My first live Shakespeare with like-minded people, what more could I ask…

    Wednesday Ramblings

    I thought I’d give a little update about the goings-on here at Chez Lunatic since it’s actually been some time since I’ve posted much of anything really. I don’t know why traveling takes something out of you but it does, and last week was spent trying to catch up with things I’d missed here at home. My down-time I spent catching up on some reading and movies that I’d missed. I managed to finish three books: The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, and Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding. I also watched The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (actually I…

    I Have A Confession

    I am hanging my head in shame. I have been a lazy girl. I have not run since my 5k in April. Not once. At first it was because I pushed myself hard for the 5k run and needed some recovery time. But I haven’t put on my running shoes since that Saturday. Until today. Today I put them on and got out there and began my neighborhood route. And I got my butt kicked by the heat and humidity. At 10 a.m. Let me tell you, it was not pretty. I actually didn’t do too bad since I haven’t run at all for over a month. I made it…

    Versatile Blogger Award

    Alrighty then. I was notified by my friend CJ on Sunday night that she nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. I’m very honored at the award. Basically, it means that someone considers my writing of a certain quality, and wants to recognize that and share with others. I am very humbled, and pleased, that she thought of me. Thank you, CJ, for your kindness and thoughtfulness. It means a lot to me. You can find CJ over at DYSB Writing. She has come a long way since I first met her in January, and I am very happy to call her ‘friend’. Now, to accept the award there are some…

    Monday’s Muse: Stardust

    Last night my friend CJ let me know that she nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. So, tomorrow’s post will be about that. Today is Monday’s Muse and I have a new one for you. I have recently been reading articles about the stars and how we are, technically, made up of the same components as the stars themselves. Yesterday I was thinking about that and was inspired to write Stardust. Besides, it’s one of my favorite Nat King Cole songs. Although, my poem has nothing to do with the song. But, you get both because it’s Nat King Cole, and I love that chocolate-velvet voice. xo Jesi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VezW1PtDq5E…
