Suspension | April 12, 2014

When she leaned in to kiss me the ends of her long hair tickled the hollow between my breasts and the hair on my arms became erect with its own arousal. Her smell, cinnamon and moss, line-dried linen and pine, tipped my head in pleasure…my sight grew blurry and saliva pooled along the basin under my tongue. I waited for our lips to touch…waited and waited. My hot breath baked a once glistening landscape and my skin grew so tight I was afraid to ask where she’d gone, for fear it would crack and bleed. When I could wait no longer, even my voice had left me, and I only mouthed the word, “why”. The salt of my tears stung, melding with the pooled saliva creating an estuary stained red from the blood that seeped from the cracks I had feared. 
I became an arid desert in her absence.

Calm & Meditative | April 3, 2014
Santa Cruz, CA & Lansing, MI

This is an ongoing project exploring visual representation of self in correlation with emotion and mood.

Ahhh..a little view of what’s happening with the Magpie and the Dandelion as they are thousands of miles apart…

Your Sister’s Curls Were Unencumbered | April 4, 2014

When you handed me the flowers I thought it meant that you were done with me and leaving, as I hadn’t heard from you in weeks. Tied to the tattered pink, borrowed ribbon was a tiny handwritten note with the words, “I love you…always”, but I didn’t believe you. “Always” is too definite a word to describe something so fleeting as love.

Mending & Concerned | March 21, 2014
This is first image in a series of images to come that will change the environment for the Magpie and the Dandelion.
Here you see the Magpie in her nest. The Dandelion tending. 
An image of transition, as all things do shift and change, after all. 

This is an ongoing project exploring visual representation of self in correlation with emotion and mood.
