Writing…

I am going to be starting the “Real Job” soon but I feel I should share that I have been writing again. Only problem, its an involved story so it may be a while before you see anything from it. But I do know what it will be called Obsidian Heart. That’s all I will be telling so far. Well, I also have ideas for a drawing to go along with it but there are just ideas. Wish me luck that I work on it more despite my “Real Job”. hope you all have a good day at your “Real Jobs”

Thank you,

Updates: Confusion and Questions

desertI have made a lot of pottery lately. More than I thought I would and I destroyed far more of them then I wanted too.

I have written a few things as well. Getting out frustration more than anything.

A lot of things are running through my head and I don’t really know what to do with myself. Or how to answer my own questions.

If I should move to Portland Oregon?

or just travel like I have always wanted to do. people watch and write.

the problem I find with the first is I don’t want to do what I am doing now just in another place . personally I would like to just do art. throw my pottery and write and live doing so.

what would be good is I could get around a little easier then where I am because I don’t drive. Portland in one of the better places in the U.S. for public transportation.

The problem with the second is as much as I want to write I find I need pottery its the yang to my yin. With that said if I travel to write it would be hard to do my yang because pottery seems to be a very stationary thing. but it has crossed my mind to travel to one place and the next throwing pottery at one community studio at another.

But then I would have to sell my work some how.

but if I could travel I would like to go to the British isles.

I have a friend that lived in Ireland for a while and told me to go to Galway, Ireland. I think it would be so fun to go there. A long time ago I thought of travelling even though I really had no money (still don’t). but I found a little ceramic place and it was fun to look things up and plan it all out but there was never a chance I could do it.

well I am hoping to get my etsy set up again.

I was planning on changing my name again but not sure how or if I should.

Anyway I am rambling now.

talk to you all later.

Poem From MTWYS: Fourth Grade Evaluation

postcard-2

Fourth Grade Evaluation

I remember bits and pieces of it.
The pattern she showed me,
I could not decipher then,
now has faded completely.

What I remember the most
was how my mother fished for
more of an answer than just,
“I am a ‘learning disability.’”
I remember how the woman answered

voice rushed as if, overheard,
she would be fired.
“Twenty years ago your daughter
would be severely dyslexic.”

Now I’m weirder than ever.
Now I’m a stupid girl with a fancy label.
I am in this world where I am weird,
created for the teasing of my peers.

I don’t want to be weird.
I want to be me, but
who am I at this desk
if not a weird dyslexic?
My mother however, told me when I asked,
“What does ‘dyslexic’
mean?”

“It means you have to be
really smart to be dyslexic.”
She said.

Sadly, the good things said
are often drowned out by the bad…

for I was a Learning Disability
to everyone who taught me.
“Hopeless”, they thought as they threw out
my test scores to make their
school look smarter.

Thrown into a room with two others
that knew no other label. Really,
just a learning disability?

Pulled out of class
to do work with the Special teacher…
Now I am special? Another way of saying
now I am a weird-stupid-learning-disability.

Another would tell my mother I was…”So severe”
that I would never learn to write or read.

Never amount to anything…
you stupid-weird-learning-disabled-
freak…is all I heard.

One poem from MTWYS.

A poem from a large poem story about my life and struggle with my dyslexia. Its called More Than What You See (MTWYS).

Birth

When I think of my
mother telling me
how I was born
I imagine the doctor walking
down the hallway
into her room
in a tantrum
for he had to miss
his church service
to help my mother
give birth.

Some “sunny side”
I wasn’t on.
He grabbed my head
bare handed
and flipped me
with little care,
into position
to quicken my birth
to get to his church.
I was born with his
nail impressions
around my head…
“She’s purple.”
My mother said.
“No, she’s not.”
he answered…

When she first tried to feed me
I would pass out.
She was just a
“paranoid mommy.”
He said smugly
walking out in a hurry
without a thought or care
of what he might have done.
Made my dyslexia worse
for the sake of his church.
