White Rose

White Rose by Nathan Thomas Jones

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

– John Boyle O’Reilly

Feather in your cap

feather in your cap

Make a move with what you can
Dead waters rise higher than your mind
Disappointment is a feather in your cap
You want the truth so you can crush it in your hand

There’s no map that can tell you where you are
You’re in between things that only go half way
Your tangled brain, your tired old refrain
You’ll be singing it in your tired old asylum

You want the best, you want contests
My eyes are filled with prizes you’ve been showing
Your disappointment is a card up your sleeve
Place your bets at the door before you leave

– Beck

Electric Crazyland

Tiff McGinnis Grand Dame Electric Crazyland

Tiff McGinnis opens her Grande Dame show, Electric Crazyland at the St Leonards’s bar tonight. Check the links for her artwork, I’m not going to describe it, go see for yourself, it’s really great.

She speaks in a low Georgia drawl, with a purr like an idling V8, and tells me an abbreviated version of how she arrived in the UK, via New York, San Francisco and doing a gig with Jane Birkin in Europe.

Never, ever leave the house without your camera. How many times have I told myself this? Anyway, got this, shot on iPhone.

I love these iMessage stickers from the show:
