I've been spending time at Columbus Circle a lot and around uptown and there's a great deal of controversy over carriage horses and their treatment be it horrific or well or whatnot depending who you talk to. I'd been getting newsletters from organizations trying to ban them saying the animals are abused and showing graphic, horribly depressing photographs of dead horses and all kinds of......it was pretty gut wrenching. However, I've talked to people who've told me otherwise like who have connections to the industry and they say it is not as bad as all that and the people who own the horses love them and that there are internal politics involved property disputes and such. I pass them (the horses) every day and have come to be familiar with them and I believe they know and remember me as well. I pet them. The drivers say hi to me. I don't .....I mean it costs money to maintain their upkeep and the money comes from people buying rides. What can I say? Put your two cents, or two hands in. Pet the horses. Feed them apples. They are very social creatures and love attention and companionship. Talk to them. Buy a ride which will pay for their food, veterinary bills, housing.....for me that's the best I can think of. Maybe in other ways (not always) I'm not as confrontational as I once was or at least not if......I don't know. I love animals. All of them. Be careful feeding them watch your fingers or feed them off a plate or something. Ask permission.

I never knew much of her story only that her photos fascinated me. Something unique comes through every dancer even though they wear the same costumes and perform nearly identical moves. But she stood out to me. As a teenager I hung out in Strand Books a lot and for hours would study these photos which was all I had for a long time. I didn't know that she was considered subversive there and banned from touring which is why she didn't come over here; although eventually she did. An article on her says, "Plisetskaya explains that for her generation, and her family in particular, defecting was a moral issue: 'He who runs to the enemy's side is a traitor.' She had once asked her mother why their family didn't leave the Soviet Union when they had the chance, at the time living in Norway. Her mother said that her father 'would have abandoned me with the children instantly' for even asking. 'Misha would never have been a traitor.'" Check it out it's pretty fierce her bio. It's Wikipedia so questionable but a general idea.....
you will be missed.

bizarre just found this of Mila Kunis.....the wedding cake looked a little like this dress......
"In our country the worst of all crimes occurs when the government murders truth. If it can murder truth, it can murder freedom. If it can murder freedom, it can murder your own sons--if they should dare to fight for freedom-- and then it can announce that they were killed in an industrial accident, or shot by the "enemy" or God knows what." Jim Garrison (prosecutor for JFK [ cold case]/ murder conspiracy) closing statement.
"People can take everything from you/but they can never take away your truth/the question is/can you handle mine?" additional lyrics to "My Perogative" performed by Britney Spears I'm assuming written by
Bloodshy & Avant are a Swedish songwriting and production duo of Christian Karlsson (Bloodshy) and Pontus Winnberg (Avant).
oh interesting......my great grandfather's name was Carl Christian.
I have found it very difficult to focus or discipline myself today I suppose it's lack of sleep and that I expended so much energy yesterday plus just fried. But my mind kicks in ADD or whatnot endless pinging of stuff against my skull..... so here I am recording it......as it comes. Or am I mildly autistic? ????? Be still my mind.
I never understood the lyrics of the song "Edge of 17" but just found them on the internet they are brilliant, brilliant man.
"In a flood of tears
That no one really ever heard fall at all
When I went searchin' for an answer
Up the stairs and down the hall
Not to find an answer
Just to hear the call
Of a nightbird singin'
This song was released according to Wiki (abbreviations abbv. ) Feb. 5, 1980.
On Feb 5, 1963 Sylvia Plath wrote her last poem, "Edge."

another make up girl did this look......somehow the image resonates with me more if it's a real person made up.....
and by the way I didn't copy Lady Gaga with this reference didn't even know she did a song with that title
guess geniuses think alike (!)

Phone charging. I am happy to say I have seen a ton of great art around the city. There was an opening at my school lots of interesting people a girl with sneakers on and a bouquet of flowers in her bag (I guess I'm a trendsetter? Wouldn't have expected that) or who knows coincidence but I don't believe in coincidences what should I do? Sue? Trademark infringement? I will post more on this later.....

Makes me think of this:

Tears by Missing Persons
Kind of cheesy but there you are same title anyway
Sleep and Monster (2) and......well, sleep makes a difference. My family helped me. For which I am grateful. TY :-)) Two young women friends of mine just gave birth.....I'm sitting in a pricey but cute little enclave on west 57 just came back from Sunset Park, Bklyn AND the dead. I was so miserable before I was like please God (or whatever is there) just kill me..........but ......here I am......still alive. Thanks to help really...... It's been an exhausting and tumultuous couple months. Kind of like a boxing match. If I came out victorious it was not without getting bloodied and battered. BUT alas I am here and.....thankful if feeling scarred and wounded. I hurt my knee too and walking, which I did in place of running, was nonetheless hard work and painful with a dull persistent ache in my knee and huffing and puffing. I did however stop in barnes and nobles and found a copy.of The Bell Jar and began reading Sense and Sensibility. And watched I suppose Stanley Kubricks first film. It goes to show you I mean if you compare this with his later films this one was.....um.....pretty silly, botched and amateurish. It still was incredibly stylish. He did start out as a photographer. I can't get thus out of my mind he and Sylvia Plath were then running in the same circles in NYC both ultimately ended up in London anyway I suppose it's my own ADD or such I get fixated on things most people don't......

For a month and half I had no phone hence why I wasn't on social social networking much. In a way it was kind of liberating. I did a lot of stuff I missed out on like reading. Nonetheless I am grateful to have a phone my mom helped me.
I felt like death yesterday it could be a number of things but I'm going to get screened for lyme just to be safe. I'm thinking about all the times I ducked into the bushes to pee like when running through the park. Thank you to all who helped me sorry for my behavior )

Been a while forgive me I wasn't feeling well but I am a little better. This week was tumultuous.....I had a dream earlier today that I was in some kind of rural setting and ended up in a house .....made of.....not sure.......not an expert on the material but it was large stones and there was writing on the walls that became more and more intricate. Someone standing behind me said this used to be a church it's kind of creepy and it was.....but it was so detailed I'd never seen this before that I can recall.
Maybe it was like one I'd passed in Harlem not sure.....
A few months ago I dreamt of a house in the Hamptons I later saw advertised in one of their papers.
A swimming pool.....I dream constantly of houses, water.....
