The Subvertist

*featured image photo credit-Francesca Woodman, Untitled, 1978 

It’s not every day one receives  recognition,

So thanks, Ramjet ye olde poetic punk for this solid admonition.

I love your writing style and sudden denouement friends,

If god should save anyone it should be those who seek to live for alternative ends.

I nominate those who welcomed me into their fold

2nd star to the Left, straight on ’til morning
Brave and Reckless
Howl Davies
Fallen Alone
lois e. linkens
Malicia’s Malebolge
Max Meunier- Dissociative Void

Idle this journey is not- when we realize true énouement of breaking free from the mold.

Acceptance and humbled – I did not foresee this weeds place in the garden of life.

September 2015 – I turned  my face to the sun and bloomed, a unique individual, with  valid petals  to share with  society;

my heart need not bleed by stabbing it with a knife.

Opened up myself for all to see – vulnerable and strong -I took a risk and said this is who I am.

That leap found me on the other side, looking back -in relief,

I realized that nobody need accept me – I already had found within me – my most loyal fan.

Don’t hesitate, hit publish and know that you can.

God send the haters and their thoughts into a file befittingly named spam.

Inspiration can come from the experiences and people who we must never worry ourselves with that they never gave a damn.

Be an outsider, don’t conform to the norm if it doesn’t balance out with your body, mind, and soul.

You won’t stand alone for long.

Flip the anarchic bird and keep strong.

 Self-belief gravitates towards others who have a similar goal.

THIS IS MY ACCEPTANCE IMAGE   FOR THE BLOGGER RECOGNITION AWARD.

My favourite  painting of Wassily Kadinsky. I first discovered his work in 2005.

That is beautiful which is produced by the inner need, which springs from the soul.

If you didn’t know…..

Morning Bloggers!

It’s been a stressful year, survived – again! I received my results for my first TMA for my MA .  I’m currently going through my options and rights as a student with the institution I am studying with. I can’t really go into  all the details it at this point.  I have received an unofficial  apology and have been advised to take it further.

I will say: I won’t be bullied by anybody.

giphy

The themes I write about are close to my heart. I will fight for an  official apology , I’m not so sure about asking for it to be remarked-although other people who have read my work and, understand stage and theater  and the issues I raise say I should demand a remark.

 For me, it’s more about the principle. The people in my life who know the full story of what has happened (especially those who  have seen the comments) which don’t focus on  the academic side of my writing (and who work in the mental health and vulnerable  sector in my community)  are furious on my behalf and are  horrified by the ignorance displayed the person who marked my paper.

I have all the evidence and support to take it further, I just need to make a decision.

I will keep you updated on the outcome.

So, on a more positive note I have been nominated for the SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD by Megan Elizabeth Creative Imaginations card-flowers-daisies-thank-you-card-flower-chamomile-thank-you check out her random facts page. She’s based in Chicago!

THE RULES

  • Thank whoever nominees your blog – Me in this case! 

  • Indulge yourself and answer any questions you feel happy to answer

  • Spread  that radiance to some other awesome blogs to keep the light shining brightly.

  • Use these questions or make up your own to ask your nominees

  • Tell your nominees that they have been nominated. 

  • Put your preferred logo award on display . I chose this one.

Q&A TIME

Which decade do you miss the most?

I don’t miss it because I wasn’t alive at the time. I do feel drawn to the twenties. I love jazz, I love the bohemian artsy fartsy-ness of that time, politics, and art movement that brought so many creative and eccentric and bloody brilliant  minds together. I hate war but I love the culture  that grew from such an inauspicious  time.

Yes, I love the decadence- ignorance is bliss -for a brief moment. I love the lingo, the dancing, the style, I love all of it. The struggles during the war which is a stark contrast to the early 20’s.

I also have always loved Rap/hip hop. I had to know every word of Snoop Dogs lyrics. I do think he promoted his brand in a  sexist  manner but I love his smooth, humorous and effortless way of rapping that doesn’t come across like he wants to start a war. It was about the Fedora hats and Pimps – it wasn’t meant to be taken too seriously but everyone has their own interpretation of the music and the culture that grows from a genre of music.

 I do wish I had been around when disco and hip-hop emerged in the late 1970’s and 80’s. I  love Grandmaster Flash, Mr. Hollywood etc..

 I appreciate how  important music is in forming a culture and how it can divide and bring people and communities together.

 I was a rave bunny, a mosher , a skater girl, a raggamuffin.

I love all music.

I love writing.

I love poetry.

I was a part of the E  generation of the nineties. Alcohol wasn’t a popular drug to get high on and I saw a lot less fighting and a lot of different sub -cultures come together and accept each other for their differences.

To which poet do you feel most connected to?

Charles Bukowski and Sylvia Plath -(didn’t think much of her novel ‘Bell jar’ ) I do love her poetry.

Your spirit cartoon character/TV show artist?

Erm… My latest love is ‘Reign’ – just finished binge watching all three seasons and I love the politics and the scandal of that era  and I love to see queens kicking butt. Queen Mary of Scots, Queen Elizabeth Ist rock!

How has your blog helped you the most?

I get to write and people read my posts and get me! What more can I ask for?

I ‘ve made some awesome connections through blogging – It is a great way for me to express myself in any way I wish.  This blog and the people who support me have seen me through some crazy and turbulent times.

I nominate  -(I know some of these are award free blogs but I feel you have been a great support and ray of sunlight in times of need, whether you know it or not)

 

I think I will stop there

THANK YOU FOR BEING MY BALL OF SUNSHINE !

SUNSHINE WILL FOLLOW THE RAIN

Life is keeping me super busy. I spent all day grading vintage jewellery  yesterday.

– Yay!

La Familia is starting a business.  We are part Russian. We stick together forever. Till death do us part -aaaaargh! 😀

 Feeling silly and giddy.

I always do when  I have a load on. I think its a  self-defence mechanism .

I’ve been super busy looking at online websites and getting my business mind grooving,

My Bella Bee has been having nightmares about monsters for the past 4 nights.

Super- uber,  bad nightmares.

Why?

Smelly boys   have been telling my daughter that  monsters are going to come to her bed at night.

 ( sung in Phoebes voice ‘smelly cats’ from Friends’)

‘Smelly boys smelly boys,

news alert, your parents dont love you!

Smell boys smelly boys.

You have  tiny pricks  

Smelly boys ,smelly boys.

You make me sick.’

So, it is the perfect time to accept the Sunshine Bloggers award and spread some light and love to all those who inspire me, support me, blow me away – I’m not going to nominate you all ‘cos I like to be a bit more intimate and personal but this is for all of you – I give you full permission to take some sunshine and accept the award if you want. Your name doesn’t have to be on this list!

WHO DO I THANK FOR NOMINATING  ME THIS AWESOME AWARD ?

sunshine-blogger-award1

4therace- MY MIND PROJECTED ONTO THE SCREEN  – want to know information on film, society, and Television. Check this Blog out.

Here is a link to his ABOUT (this dude is 17 years old and has more perspective than a lot of people I have engaged with)

WHAT IS THE SUNSHINE BLOGGER AWARD AND GUIDELINES TO ACCEPTING IT?

  •  The Key word  here is Sunshine. So which blogs spread a light on your life, in moments when it rains ,pours and it is windy and your umbrella turns into a crow and flies out of your hand?

  • Answer 11 questions from who nominate you and answer what you feel comfortable answering.

  • Nominate 11 Bloggers

  • Ask 11 Questions off your own

 

4THERACE Q&A  TIME

1. What are the 5 best films of the decade thus far (so that’s 2010-2016)?

I’m going by what I have seen ( state the obvious why don’t I?!)

 

Absolutely Fabulous – the movie!

 

The Get down ( it is a series but I am hooked. My inner teen has a TINY crush on the wordsmith.

 

(through gritted teeth) I enjoyed watching  ‘Suicide Squad’– in my defence, I think it was the soundtrack that swayed me 😀

 

The conjuring two.  – creepy.

 

  1. Lucy – what a find!

 

2.Favourite French Film? If you don’t have one, then favorite foreign language film?

 

It has to be ‘La vie en Rose’ I love Edith Piaf. Her music brings me to tears.

3. If you could only watch 5 films for the rest of your life, what would they be?

 

Bell Vue rendezvous

 

Alice in Wonderland ( 1950’s Disney version)

 

Water for Elephants

 

Natural Born Killers

 

Pulp Fiction

4.What do you have to say about modern cinema?

I’m not really a film connoisseur.  I do like my indie/independent films. I like going to the cinema. – Does that count?  The cinema experience is fun – warm popcorn, surround sound.

5. Anime. Yes or No? Why?

I’ve watched a few bits and bobs  when my husband watches them .I think they are unique, I guess I should give it a proper watch and then make a decision. If I did that I would be condoning my husbands taste in a genre – ha ha!

6. What is a television show that you would suggest to anyone?

Anyone? I was going to shout ‘American Horror story’ but not everyone is into so-called horror. I’ve just finished watching season five of ‘Once upon a time’ – it’s really opened my imagination and helped generate my writing.

7.What  do you admire most about the WordPress blogosphere?

The people. The community- without it I don’t think I would still be Blogging.

8.What inspired you to write your blog?

WOW!  erm… nobody in particular. I just set a goal and said  I am going to write a Blog and I did it and that’s it.  I  have found inspirational bloggers on here that have kept me going. I love a challenge.

9.What would you like to see your blog evolve into (if you want it to evolve)?

I want to link more of my real life endeavors with my Blog -one would be my volunteering. I would like to be able to help people help themselves with certain programmes I have done and trained on. I am in two minds about sharing my vintage jewellery business on here. I may have a link on this Blog, in the future, to my online shop. I don’t want this Blog to be a marketing merchandise blog.

10. What is a blog here on WordPress that you would recommend to anyone and why?

I would have to say Jason from Harsh reality.  He is successful. He has writing talent. He uses his blog as a platform to help promote new writers with their books. He is funny. He is not afraid to put his opinion out there.

11. What advice would you give to someone who doesn’t know what they want to do in the future?

Blog wise? mmm, I would say start with what is going on in your life. That is how I started my Blog. My blogs content evolves with what I do in my Life. I like that about my Blog. I like to see it evolving. I don’t like stagnation. I like movement. I like to dance and keep on the go.

THANK YOU FOR THIS NOMINATION.

About the award- “This award is for bloggers who strive to write for everybody, and no matter how many viewers they get, make an impact on a reader. This award is an expression of gratitude to the nominee. It should be awarded to anybody that you choose deserves it.”

HERE IS THE AWARD WITH THE  GUIDELINES TO ACCEPTING IT. 

20160721_181414

THANK YOU TO SWETA . YOU ARE ANOTHER SWEET SOUL IN OUR COMMUNITY. LOVE YOUR BLOG. YOU ARE SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL -INSIDE AND OUT – CHECK SWETA OUT HERE 

THANK YOU paintdigi   FOR NOMINATING ME FOR THE SAME AWARD. I THINK YOU ARE SO TALENTED – LOVE YOUR ART!

MY ANSWERS TO SWETA’S  AWESOME THREE QUESTIONS: 

  1. Which is better – to speak a lie that saves or a truth that kills?

I’m known for being rather blunt and too honest for my own good. I think I have offended people with my truths but I’d rather be real than be fake. I suppose there are different ways to speak the truth that doesn’t come across as obnoxious. Then there are Truths that can’t be dressed up.  Tell it like it is….

2. Whose blog do you relate with and why?

WOW!  There are so many. Lately, so many of you have been so supportive. The first name that comes to mind is ETTA D’s blog – more because I’ve needed to hear motivating and inspirational posts.  My 7 Nominees are the other Blogs I have related to of late.

3. They say money can buy happiness, how correct is the statement for you?

No. Not true inner Happiness but as the saying goes ‘ it’s easier to cry in a Mercedes Benz than on crutches with no car or money to get to THAT  festival you want to go to.’ -It’s kind of like the saying, isn’t it?   It smooths over the rough times but it’s more of a plaster than genuine happiness and contentment.

THE AWARD

wp-1469272707791

I can’t accept the award because I am going to be a true character and step out of my rebellious role (just this once) and follow the rules for once.

I can nominate.

 I intend to keep this award to nominate any new Bloggers who happen to have under 1000 mates in the Blogosphere, when I do my Blog scouting and SHOUT OUTS and thank you’s –  soon.

Watch this space.

Watch it.

Watch it.

 

for those who are not aware, the liebster award is given to bloggers who share great contents and have less than a thousand followers. it is one way to recognize and promote the efforts and works of new bloggers.

INKY FIRE

THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTS ME. MENTIONS ME IN THEIR BLOGS. NOMINATES ME. 

I AM SHOUTING THIS.

I NEVER IMAGINED THE RESPONSE I WOULD RECEIVE FROM DOING SOMETHING THAT SCARED THE SHIT OUT OF ME- ONE YEAR AGO. 

PEOPLE WHO KNOW ME HAVE ALWAYS TOLD ME TO WRITE AND BELIEVE IN WHAT I HAVE TO WRITE IS WORTHY OF READING AND CREDIBLE. 

I DON’T THINK I WOULD BE DOING MY MASTERS DEGREE IN CREATIVE WRITING IN OCTOBER IF I HADN’T STARTED THIS BLOG. 

SPEECH OVER!

BE AWESOME! 

BE EPIC!

YOU ROCK!

YOU ALL AMAZE ME IN SOME WAY.  Every day. 

giphy (7).gif

Simply Amazing.

Aaaah,

time flies like the wind but fruit flies like bananas.

That is my epically silly start to this fabulous post to say a huge HELLO  and WELCOME  to The Willows. There are some epic Blogs on this list.

Every week I take a look at all my lovely new friends in the Willows – Give you all a massive SHOUT OUT  and then I pick a post that connects with me like in a spiritual way , kind of thing… like a hippy vibe….

images

ahem ..  let me clear that up.

-so what I do each week/fortnight is I have a good look around all of your Blogs and pick out a Blog post of yours to share on here.

 

giphy (6).gif
I LIKE TO CALL THEM DAISY’S STAR POST PICK!

 

 

Ha ha!  I am not a hippy but I do believe if anyone should drop something it should be BEATS  and not BOMBS.

 

giphy (4).gif

 

PEACE!

A song to listen to  while you check these amazing Bloggers out!

Ok.

So it is that time to sing all your praises – new flowers and trees / plants – whatever you wish to be.

WELCOME TO THE WILLOWS.

This is what I do each week. SHOUT OUTS!

I give a shout out and share a post from your blog that hits me.

giphy (1).gif

ERM……………..

I like to express my gratitude and at the same time, give -all my other lovely friends in the Willows, new Blogs to check out.

I have decided to do what I did last week and accept an award and nominate not only ten people I already follow (  the first number that came to my mind) but also to nominate you for this award too. Simply because… I can..

Ha ha! No, I jest, I jest…..

The reason will become apparent now.

The intention of this award is to encourage connectivity and support in the blogging community and to increase exposure for individual bloggers. 

BROOKE @THE UTOPIA UNIVERSE

Here is my lovely award

makeitultra4.jpg

Thank you, Brooke. I have followed you since I started blogging and when I think of you I think pure white sand, balmy weather, a Mediterranean vibe, and cocktails 😀 – the cocktail bit is my added idea of what should get the thumbs up in  Utopia.

I sometimes think that you must be telepathic because whenever I read your posts, it feels like you have tapped into my brain and drawn out something that I need to face and draw strength from.

The song that comes to mind when I think of you is this. I don’t know why but I just do.

If you wish to accept the award:  The rules are simple:

  • Accept award or accept it as a compliment

  • Credit Award nominator

  • copy and paste award image in your post

  • Explain what the award is for – check above

  • Nominate  whoever you want
