Fear and loathing

A fat drying lizard

Rotting meat on a stone

Knotting my stomach every day

I want to walk this way

Past this brutal sight

Not to change it nor to fix it

I will never give it weight

And I will banish all superstition

That does not belong to me

Until days turn it into dust

  1. The sun is out in Oslo city, BigLizzy. Can you imagine? When I read your message tears came to my eyes the other day. Sunless living. Kindness is by far the best quality a man or a woman can possess. I trust that you are well and thank you once again for your support. You are a star. 🙂


    1. Awwww…sister, Nomzi! Thank you so much for reaching out to me today and your kind comments. What a sweet image: you, in the sunlight, turning your face toward the light and letting it in (just like the background photo on your blog here).That’s a wonderful image, which will lift my heart all day. 🙂 It’s sunny in Sedona, AZ, too. I love living here so much. Sedona is magical. I hope you can visit someday. I would love to meet you, sis. Warm hugs from your friend, BigLizzy


      1. Nomzi-Sweetie, sweet SISTER. I know your heart, honey. It’s so full and rich and I’m honored to be part of your journey. You gift the world by being here and doing your work as a human being. I honor you. Many warm hugs!
