Think As A Princess Would

” A Pale Green Mermaid Poem Corner”

A princess floated

her crown resting on a paper boat

she made

out into the waves

past the sea-foam

then the jelly fish

the sun rose high in the sky

as she walked back

past sand dollars

to her castle

the sun went down

the sun came up

she combed her braids

laced them with ribbons

and walked to the beach

a coffee cup warmed her palm

there next to the  chair in the sand

was her crown…Sitting on a soggy sea weed covered boat

she put it on

it glistened with salt

as she sipped

whipped cream pressed on her lips

and she thought.

Book Are Mysterious

” An Artful Mermaid Blog “

 

Books are mysterious

the internet is stupid

it didn’t use to be that way

the internet before google and other entities

sold our souls (and our privacy)

for a silver coin of data

you could pull from the pocket of anyone

over the globe

their secret whispers were your own

now your click is worth a dime

and they bottle neck your meanderings

monitoring and sending your footprints to

every Jack and Harry

for cold cool cash

But books are still mysterious

books still hold truths that no one knows

until you crack that back…..

Mirth

” A Pale Green Mermaid Gallery”

 

=======================

Beauty can’t be sliced or diced

pared or boxed

some rely on the past to see the future

like an old slipper

worn with holes

but something you know

that path a slow dearth

little mirth

little birth of a new

you

still everyone chooses their way

to stay on course

straight as an arrow, gliding through a cloud

I prefer something brand new

the old I eschew

I seek–

a workout for the soul.

Pizarro: Anne & Mark’s Art Party is a spectacle like no other

A rendering showing the hanging sculpture artist Bill Gould is installing on the entry arch at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds for Anne & Mark’s Art Party, a weeklong art festival starting Sept. 24, 2016.

There’s something magical — and a little bit crazy, to be honest — coming together at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds right now. Preparations are underway for Anne & Mark’s Art Party, self-described as “an occasional and irrational San Jose arts fest.”

Part Burning Man spectacle and part modern art show, the Art Party — featuring an “Alice in Wonderland” theme — gets underway Sept. 24 with an opening night gala that should be full of surprises. Artist Bill Gould was spending the weekend creating a hanging sculpture incorporating cables and metal strips for the Fairgrounds’ entry arch, and Burning Man vets Gwenand Bob “Wizzard” Marzewski are creating an interactive art installation called “Rabbit Hole.” And that’s before you even get into the galleries.

Music Today

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Searching for music on FM radio you come across certain people that are pushed-that are played over and over… 2 come to mind Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen, the former is the milk-toast of the beatles and the latter is stuck on repeat— but they have huge multimillion dollar contracts and  are presented as the best  in their fields.

They are simply the most profit minded willing to be promoted and sold like a pair of socks ” Don’t forget to buy those t-shirts,” they say —for merchandising is where the money is made.

So search out new art, step out of the bubble world of coffee cups t-shirts and find some honest to goodness art!!!
