12 Days of Halloween Witches

tumblr_nqm3l6nccu1r26flyo1_1280

There are witches in the hills
Calling my name
Sayin’, “Come, join us sister
Come, kiss the flame
Come, dance in the moonbeams
Ride the night winds
Make love to the darkness
And laugh at man’s sins”

I shiver with delight
I shiver with fear
My heart wants to go
But my soul’s filled with fear
So I turn to my lover
And ask, “What do I do?
Do I answer their call or
Stay here with you?”

But under spell of deep sleep
He moans and turns away
Takin’ his protection
And my desire to stay
So I rise to the hills
I ride the night winds
I make love to the darkness
And I laugh at man’s sins

Songwriters

Organic Roadkill

I intended this piece as a bold statement on the isolation and ultimate futility of our ostensibly rich and purposeful lives. I understand, it is powerful imagery, and can be disturbing to contemplate, but I must confess that in embracing the perspective–as a detached, virtually omnipotent observer–I find solace, even liberation, in examining the naked truth of my reality.

2016 Summer Wonders: Art By Elizabeth Lennie

I stumbled on these over the winter.  Aren’t they nice?

“For 25 years Elizabeth Lennie has worked as an actress in theatre, film and television while developing a painting practice and raising 3 daughters in mid-town Toronto with husband performer/writer/teacher Mike Kirby. Her liquid landscapes are both abstract and figurative and explore the memory myth of summer. The medium is oil paint on canvas or board, with layered washes, thicker impasto, and the occasional graphite text. The archetypes surrounded by water explore notions of self within the resonance of shared memory. E. Lennie’s paintings are featured regularly in the media and are collected in Canada, the US, the UK and Japan.”
