If only I could turn back the hands of time.  I wish I had a Time Machine to take me back to Happier Healthier Younger Better Looking.  I was Strong & Powerful. The World was my Oyster and I had a Bright Future.  Truly My Youth equaled the Best Years of My Life.

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

Sleep and work on my Artwork

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?


My Maternal Grandmother Eva Sophronia Gordon Palmer.  She died when I was a little girl and I did not get to know her very well.  My memories of her are faint. My Older cousins have told me what a wonderful person she was.  I miss her.

Do You Want Me to Cry While I Leave You Alone?




“Do you Want Me to Cry While I Leave You Alone?  I can build up or I can put down.  Now which will it be?

Beware the Corpse Queen for she’s just a gilded Mummy encrusted with Jewels.  A Gyrating Succubus waiting to entrap men’s souls.  Jeweled Skeletons harboring secret revelations Hidden behind the Altar.   She Loves beautiful rings, pendants and brooches with compartments for locks of her Lovers hair. Reliquaries to be worn and admired.

Sullied with a high tolerance for Costumery, Deciding to cover my decaying flesh with elaborate fabrics.  Now I take my constitutional along the boulevard of Weeping Willows.

Sleep becomes my typical Mourning routine.  Women in Mourning Attire gently moving lace and frills.  My Coachman was accompanied by small misshapen dancing beings atop miniature horses serving as squires to our entourage. Prayers roust their lumpen necks as the bier makes its way to a new forever home.  Leaving a gray miasma in their wake.

“Hydrax meets Hydrangea developing plots and schemes to catch the Hydra not fooled by settled Tramps setting traps. Push them off the bier and let me pass! Charon awaits my commands. Could have sworn I overheard snickering in the background.”

Go Tell the Bees that Dan is Dead!  Let Them Spread the Honey throughout the land!  Pollinate!  Pollinate!  Drape the Hives with Black Bunting!    Let the Shroud be Worn by each and every Mourner!  Tomb Sweeping Tuesday is at hand!  Come Eat and Fly Kites with me!
