Jazz Club Love

It hits me

Like that sound of your voice when you go higher than high

Hitting those notes of everlasting sorrow

Flowing like the hiss of the saxophone

Vibrating, echoing out into the room

Entering and exiting through ears

Drawing hearts nearer to the sweet feel of…

I am entranced

I am in love

I am yours

But as I scan the room with my lovelorn eyes

I see that I am not the only one with this feeling

There has been a spell

A spell you put on us

They are unaware of their capture

Caught up in their lustful rapture

Despair fills me with dread

But soon those notes that I adore fill the air

I am pulled back into your trance

Unable to, or unwilling to leave the embrace

You have us now and that is certain

I must admit that I am foolish

But where else could I get this feeling

Where else could I be this in love

Where else would I want to be?

The answer is

nowhere.

A Space Tale and Inspiration…

Hello Groovy People,

It has been a while since I made my last entry.  I have been busy of sorts with taking tests, teaching origami, and resting.

I have great news, I have passed two of my tests and I have two more to go!

That is not why I write this entry today.

I have been going back and forth for over a decade with my space book.  It was something that was inspired by two very different things:

  1. Joss Wedon’s Serenity
  2. Foo Fighters album The Colour and Shape

I know what you’re thinking, how can a Foo Fighters album influence a story?  Well, when I listen to music I often imagine people, places, and situations.  It can be a love story or an action fight scene that plays out in my head.

The album I mentioned was bought while I was in high school over 15 years ago.  I only bought it for one song, Everlong.  However, during a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure, I had the entire album play as I sulked; I was 19 at that time and hated going to an amusement park.

Luckily for me, hearing that album play gave me an idea of a space tale that centered around two cheeky girls, and a hell of a lot of intergalactic adventures.

Of course, years went by and I scraped most of what I had.  I had finished the entire book, but it was so unfocused that the abrupt end was confusing even to myself.

I decided to reboot it of sorts like I did with Journey’s End.  I must say that it is much better with a more fleshed out story.  I am nowhere near finished, but I’ll keep you updated!

Until then…
