For most of my childhood, my brothers and I trick or treated for Unicef. This year, I encourage you to do this too, we will be trick or treating for Unicef as well. My family along with our next door neighbor family, Carrie and David Sogg, my brothers and I along with our mothers would hold big carnivals in our front yard. We would raise a bunch of money, had a haunted house, bobbed for apples…

Passionately intoxicated by her vein ... conclusion ...

Trick or treat my lovely

draw near do not fear

the terrors of darkness

or the blood stained visions

which paralyze little lambs

with their puppy dog and princess costumes

escorted by overprotective moms with flashlight torches

Be not determined to destroy our claim to the souls of innocents

or defrock the sacredness of our haunting with garlands of garlic or…

Will Liberal Artists Vote?

The Pot Prop 19 is just a liberal democrat ploy to get younger voters out to vote so they don't lose control of the house ... How scandalous to think that the future of politics in America depends on a bunch of pot heads!

Getting to Know Fresno Artists

One of the perks I get to enjoy with my job is getting to know people in the Art Industry. I have always been fascinated with art when I was a kid. I got to know a lot of people here in FresnoArts that are all inspiring and very much willing to make my job easier for me. All of the artists I got the privilege to interview were all very supportive and very eager in giving me details that helped me create amazing artist profiles. So far, I have created profiles for the following amazing people,… Continue

beauty in the beast

fog haunts the soggy moors rolling

through the heart capturing every curve

as darkness becomes night and stars shine light

the full moon brings upon the beast a transformation

one which rocketing silver bullets &

angry pitched fork mobs hold no power, only struggle

for the beast within is consumed with hunger

overwhelmed by taste of love want need; of you…

Selling Art Wisdom

If you want to sell art two things matter "location, location, location," and exposure... oops that's four, oh well. Showing in NY, San Francisco, Chicago, Santa Fe or Scottsdale do not qualify as location but some locations (Galleries) in these cities do. A very select and talented few make it in "these" locations. Therefore the other option "exposure" is your best bet, if enough people see your stuff you'll find buyers and the more… Continue

Day of Mourning

Columbus why did you come

across the mighty sea

to the land of the brave

to a world so free?

To our surprise

gold and greed,

the measure of your worth

Corrupted America with a foreign seed

Why such disrespect

ancient boundaries cry

turtle island sinks below the European tide

the Salmon, Wolf and Buffalo rhetorically ask "why?"

Beautiful Brent...

Dear Brent,

I feel so sad today, I wondered about this, then I remembered, it has been two years since you left, I still think of you every day. You have affected me and your passing did, but your life was so much more the short time you were here. You had insight, you were strong, so talented, you did not like cheese, you loved to sing, paint, make people smile, you were funny. So funny. I miss your voice, your consideration of my…

Mu-sick Wisdom

If your music is good people will say so but if its "so so" they'll say Granny could blow a better tune out her ass ... and if you're over 50 and the youngsters say your music is "sick" that means
it's "*groovy."

*Oh, youngsters, one last thing, when old farts say your music is groovy they don't mean it's full of holes or grooves they mean its "sick."

Come to me lover, I am here ...

Let not this moment pass unnoticed

by dwelling on yesterday

or what we will do tomorrow

Eternity is now

engage it fully by letting all distractions go

Release those captives,

those unhappy memories that wage war

Judge the past by engaging

passionately the now,

release yesterday to the forgetfulness of non-being

Oh, peoples, places and events,

I see your sacred dance unfold before me

I will worship in the…
