the whys, wherefores and hows
please, never hesitate to throwin' down an' askin' for the whys, wherefores an' hows (pretendin' we never did break down 'til just now) ...
... i ain't commitin' to deliverin' to you your allotted portion of wisdom altogether --- to keep us both from gettin' all tangled up in and amongst all them past laments an' misplaced mementos: the brambles an' ham-hand-heavy fairy-scary stories piece themselves together as righteous religious rambles, talkin' down into the wells an' crevices of all them craggy, vacant promises:
never could tell your milky spit from the gleamin' salty tears; never meant for that shiny lovin' locket to be laid upside your curvaceous back pocket, nor in between the swing-time folds of that sparkly-hangin' dress my best lady sashayed in to-and-fro, showin' off what she got away back when ...

Literature
I Had a Dream ...
The world - indeed the entire solar waltz - was about to end, the finish having been pinpointed down to the exact microsecond by well-meaning physicists and astronomers. Earth was to be wiped clean by some great cosmic cataclysm: all life and every trace of its existence, past and present, would be obliterated, our beloved lands reduced to a barren, Mars-frigid husk.
Therese and I were bumping shoulders with hundreds of others in an office suite at the top of a New York City skyscraper, where a cacophony of televised noise blared news from around the world, along with an inexorable hypnotic countdown to the end ... tick ... tick ... About half the people there refused to believe that anything out of the ordinary was happening, while the other half reacted with either weeping and wailing or stoic acceptance.
Chaos owned the streets: violence -  looting - and I remember thinking, “How stupid can these people be!? What do those idiots think they're going to do with all that

10 X 10: A History of deviantART
Proud to be a deviant? This history belongs to you. Is it long? You bet it's long-- ten years in the making long, told by ten of the deviants who built deviantART and kept it alive. So brew up a fresh pot, print up some pages, and sit down to the story of the decade…
matteo (co-founder, deviantART): I was eighteen when deviantART first opened its doors. I was so young and naive. I had this idealistic vision of an online community of artists, coming together to promote creativity and the freedom of expression. We had no idea that it would actually succeed beyond our wildest dreams.
jark (co-founder, deviantART): At the time deviantART was conceived, I was living in Chiba, Japan. I had been working on websites for a few years and was actively brainstorming ideas for a new website. My main experience up through that point had been in the MP3 scene; I worked on a site called CyberTropix, briefly ran a skin

wisdom of the young.
The house is too big and too empty as it watches over the widow crouching in the corner of the emptiest room of all. Her hands tremble as tears trickle along her veins and fall silently onto the hardwood floor.
In the garden, the sun burns the back of the little girl in the white dress with the blue satin sash as she slides off the swing, walks past the front door, up the creaking stairs, and into Grandpa's room.
Her tiny hands gently stroke the heaving back of the older woman.
"Don't cry, Grandma. Grandpa's just gone to heaven."

Think Pink IV Contest Winners!
My fine friends, I want to express my gratitude for all of the dedication you show to my cause every year! I appreciate it so so much and I thoroughly enjoyed going through EVERY single image and reading EVERY single LIT submission. The thought put into your entries is touching. Thank you so much. Another year of Think Pink comes to an exciting end as I've just completed all of my treatments for this 2nd cancer inconvenience. Your prayers and constant words of encouragement kept me going. While there may be the following entries that placed, you're all winners as far as I'm concerned for the effort that you put forth. As with each year I've done this in the past, I had both the luxury AND the torture of have to choose the winners of the contest. Now, I'll quit babbling and get on with the task at hand! :D

'Get Spunky!' Promo V: Heather

Journal Entry: Fri Mar 19, 2010, 1:25 AM

Greetings friends and fellow deviants,
...such learning must needs be, by its own nature, hard-fought...

Our friend author L. Diane Wolfe (known to us here at deviantART as SpunkOnAStick) is back with the 5th and final book in her wonderful “Circle of Friends” series: The Circle of Friends, Book V: Heather. Book V was released last Tuesday, and not a day too soon as far as I'm concerned.

Heather's character has always been a favorite of mine. She has an edgy quality and can be somewhat abrasive at times, and while that type isn't always one of my favorites in real life, in fiction I often identify. I've been curious to know more about this intriguing person, and now I'll get my chance. Since Book V is the final entry in the series, the pleasure will be bittersweet.

Another reason I'm drawn to this character is the fact that Heather's sport is basketball, as a player in the previous books, and as a coach in Book V. As you can no doubt tell from some of my tweets, I'm a fan of women's basketball. That aspect is tailor made. I pointed out to Diane the amusing “coincidence” that the release of Heather coincides with the start of this year's chapter of March Madness … and she winked at me. You can draw your own conclusion from that … *chuckle*

As always, your faithful servant,
mdog

INFO:
 
Today I am featuring an excerpt from :iconspunkonastick:’s new novel, The Circle of Friends, Book V…Heather. This is a continuation from the excerpt posted in :iconroocat:’s journal. It began on March 14 and runs through the 19th - full list of hosts & excerpts at :iconspunkonastick: Book synopsis is below.
 
Want to win an autographed copy of Book V? See below for details…
 
Excerpt Nineteen
 
“Honestly?” he asked, reaching for the door. Mark hesitated, his eyes intense despite a gleam of mischief. “None.”
 
He threw open the door and waited for her to exit first. Heather stared open-mouthed for a moment before regaining her composure. Taking a deep breath, she stepped out of his office. Mark followed her into the hallway and patted Heather on the back.
 
“See you Saturday,” he said with conviction before striding in the other direction.
 
Heather watched his retreat, a scowl on her face at Mark’s audacity. He simply took for granted she would accept his offer, expecting her to obediently appear at his house Saturday night. His bold and confident assumption annoyed Heather. She could spot cockiness a mile away and had for the most part avoided arrogant men the past few years at Duke. The last thing she needed right now was another self-assured male in her life. Fists clenched in aggravation, Heather strode into the showroom.
 
Dietrich looked up from his sandwich as she approached and flashed a broad smile. He quickly set down his food and reached behind his desk for her box.
 
“They just finished with your vehicle,” he announced, setting her former car’s possessions on the corner of his desk. Dietrich grabbed a large stack of paper from the top of his file tray and inserted them into a clean folder.
 
“Here’s your information,” he said, handing the folder to Heather, “and your key. Your Corolla is right outside.”

THE CIRCLE OF FRIENDS
BOOK V … HEATHER
BY L. DIANE WOLFE
 
When confidence turns to frustration…
 
A new beginning awaits Heather Jennings. The position at Clemson means she will finally realize her dream of coaching basketball. Heather is ready to focus on her duties, using sheer force if necessary to prove her independence.
 
Sadly, her triumph is hampered as her father and greatest advocate lies dying of cancer. Battling her grief, she must also deal with a sister who appears incapable of responsibility or achievement. And once basketball season begins, a talented but cocky player who resembles her in every manner challenges all that remains of Heather’s patience.
 
Heather’s life changes when she encounters a man capable of handling her bold and feisty attitude. Straightforward and smug, he entices her to date him, and despite his gruff nature shows a great capacity for compassion. However, the last thing Heather needs is a serious relationship with a man equally fixated on work and opposed to marriage…
