Words

I feel so disconnected, I feel alienated, I feel weary and redundant

I want to scream but I don’t

I want to throw in the towel and let my father’s disapproval wash over me like rain

I want to cry but I’m too tired to even do that. This is an admission I am happy to make

So I can let it all go and get up and do the same thing all over again

Darth Maul and my absence from the fandom…

Hey everyone (assuming people still read this blog). I’ve been a long time away from posting here but it’s not without good reason. Almost a month or so ago something happened to me while I was playing SWTOR. Something inside me just broke. Ever since then, I haven’t been able to bring myself to play. I don’t know why it happened but it just did. So I took a breather from the fandom and today is the first time I’ve thought about creating more SW motion art in a while, which is why I haven’t posted here. I still update my IG but not as often as I used to. I am still on Pinterest and Twitter but in a reduced capacity. I’ve actually been pulled back into an old fandom of mine for the Karate Kid franchise and I’ve been hanging out mostly on Tumblr with other like-minded fans of the movie and the new YT Red show, Cobra Kai.

I can’t explain exactly how I feel about things. I am still trying to figure it all out but for now, I’ve decided to keep creating motion art because someone on IG sent me a really nice message and it’s helped to motivate me back into creating stuff.

So for anyone who still frequents this blog, this is for you, and thank-you for sticking with me, even though I’ve been a fairly crappy blogger of late.

A cyclone came to say “hello” and this is what I learned in its passing …

Darksider Blog Banner Personal post so if you don’t want to read this, tune out now! On Tuesday a category 2 Cyclone hit my city. And it hit it harder than anything I can remember in the past. We’ve had earthquakes before, but the damage from this cyclone seemed to be a lot more prevalent. Power is out for more than 100,000 people. I was one of the lucky ones – my power went off for a few hours and was then restored. I thank god nobody was badly hurt or worse. Only one woman that I know of was pinned down inside her car because a tree fell on top of it. She had minor injuries. I am very relieved that this cyclone wasn’t bad enough to kill anyone – but it was close enough for me to really think about life and how much we really do take for granted. This is what I learned: Continue reading → A cyclone came to say “hello” and this is what I learned in its passing …

Star Wars is Poetry – “The Balance”

Star Wars is Poetry – here is a poem I put together using Rey and Kylo Ren/Light and Dark/The Balance of the Force as inspiration. Hope you like it!

The Balance Star Wars is Poetry

You
captured my heart
with a touch, with a touch
In a moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven

As darkness rises
In your light, I shall hide
until the pain, and the fear,
and the suffering
subside

For you
are the light
that saved me, that saved me
In that moment
lost in time’s embrace
We found our way to heaven
