Beautiful Floral, Forests, and Frondescence

Especially Nice

I love and admire everything I fave, and even ones I don't have time to fave. But the ones here are even more special to me for one reason or another. You're all so very talented!

Artist | Literature
United States

Female, age 67, single. California born and raised except for a few years in Arkansas. Married too young, too long, divorced, I've one son who is my good friend. Teaching myself to draw traditionally and mix it with digital. Plans to teach myself traditional water color. I still play around with music (keyboard). And I've poetry, novels, and story ideas somewhere between my ears. There's always so much I want to do. I'm always busy, never bored, wishing for more hours in the day and less time required for illness, including fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Meanwhile fwiw: I'm very forthright, truthful and comfortable speaking my mind, which is how I believe we all should be...otherwise why bother to speak to anyone, or even to yourself?


Favorite Colors?
Medium to Light Blues,
Purples in all Hues,
Soft Sunny Yellows,
Everything Greens,
and All In Betweens.

"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
~~©Claudia 2011

"If the light be truth, I always choose the light.
If the dark be illusion in which to hide,
I choose to illuminate.
If in between I fall and must again choose,
I hope always to use the dark as the direction from which I depart,
and not arrive."

This LifeThis life is not . . .
 who you are, how you look,
 what you get, or how you deal
It's about . . .
 who you met, what you said,
 how you gave, and what you feel.

~~©Claudia 1/5/15

I'd lost this collaboration and refound.
J-vdb made my poem even more beautiful.
Take this heart by j-vdb
~~J-vdb and Claudia 7/13/2011

Letters . . .raw thought
pieced together
my heart
without interpretation
Poetry, ah!, poetry
images in mind
I can neither see nor find
I only feel
and back to music reel
Then to a thought
Soon to another
and so I write
Letters . . .

~~©Claudia 1992/2001

Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
at any time.

dA LamentOver three years ago
in warm little cubbyholes
we convened here at dA
happy children at play
behind avatars, emotes, plz's
icons, flirts and teases
A fantasy land where each
could share his or her dreams
amateur, professional alike
site open day and night
at least one party a brew
even if between just a few
Some chatted in rooms safe
others took it face to face
lonely nights were held at bay
boring days faded away
None of us were quite the same
once we passed this way
filling the empty holes
in our hungry souls
Happiest time in my life
at the moment I want to cry
Where has it all gone?
it's too quiet now
Cubbyholes filled with light
have dimmed from my sight
Oh how I miss, I miss, I miss, I miss...
*blows dA a silent heart-shaped kiss*

Thank You by KmyGraphic for your time, comments, faves, watches, everything. I'm pleased you stopped by. :) Sorry if I can't always reply. And, btw, I fave you not because you faved me. I fave because I love your work. Please don't feel a need to return the favor unless you sincerely do like my work. That way we know it is our work that is being appreciated and not just loyalty. TY.

Trivia, Movies, Music, My Thoughts, News...

(The very middle emotional part makes my heart sing and fly away for a moment... wanting more than just a moment. It also reminds me in parts of the soundtrack of a fave movie "The Ghost And Mrs. Muir." Next time I watch it I'll have to pay closer attention to the movie credits. The Tierney/Harrison movie, not the tv sitcom. Later: I checked out the soundtrack, can't find it. I wonder what movie I'm thinking about.)
Poulenc: Variations sur le nom de Marguerite Long - Bucolique…

Bud Shank: The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore…

Robin Spielberg: Another Time Another Place…

Should I keep this RainySkyz account or start a new one? 

9 deviants said Yes, keep it. So I know where to find you.
3 deviants said Do whatever you want. It's your life.
3 deviants said If you do start a new account, will you tell me the new name?
1 deviant said Don't keep it. I don't want to keep mine either. Let's see who leaves first.
No deviants said Don't keep it. Start a new one. Explore your options.
No deviants said Keep it and make new ones. I've lots of accounts here.
No deviants said You've been here a long time. Shouldn't a long time mean something?
No deviants said If you do I'll hunt you down and find you and and and and... ignore you like I always do. :D
No deviants said Meh. Whatever. I just read this because I'm bored today.
No deviants said Other reply (feel free to add your own comments.)
