When reading it I found myself seeing the lives of Envie and Ivy as the image complimented it well. Well written and excellent!

Comment on Kamika Cooper and Victoria Nesson by DJ http://getsparked.org/spark37/kamika-cooper-and-victoria-nesson/comment-page-1#comment-41089 Wed, 13 Jun 2018 22:58:33 +0000 http://getsparked.org/?p=16607#comment-41089 The painting is lovely. The writing adds unexpected shades and dimensions, capturing the complexity and wild turns life can take. Author Kamika Cooper’s play on the shades of green (with Envie), and the way that life moves in circles is a beautifully drawn reading of them lightly textured painting. Impressive!

Comment on Lisa Kilhefner and Sharon Murphy by Donna Smith http://getsparked.org/spark37/lisa-kilhefner-and-sharon-murphy-2/comment-page-1#comment-40852 Mon, 04 Jun 2018 15:29:29 +0000 http://getsparked.org/?p=16551#comment-40852 Interesting and beautiful poem in response to this collage. My eye was drawn to the Keep and Give cards, with the myriad of mandala-like images of the inspiration piece. After reading the poem, I refocused on the colors and shape, and it blossomed even more. Well done!

Reminds me of a hot summer day in a hammock under the trees…almost asleep…

Your detail is exact and clear and vand filled with human apprehension . Sport life and death marital tension are out usually mixed in a story but yyou served it well as usual

You can see the two together here. […]

Comment on Greg Lippert and Robert Haydon Jones by Evan Owen http://getsparked.org/uncategorized/greg-lippert-and-robert-haydon-jones-6/comment-page-1#comment-38533 Mon, 02 Apr 2018 16:50:33 +0000 http://getsparked.org/?p=16485#comment-38533 It takes your breath away to think of the tangible matter that is love and friendship — to say nothing of the stuff of soul — that fleed without footsteps and fingerprints like this from a self-obsessed id in full freefall. Bruce had his own demons but Jimmy still can’t quite link arms with his own, though clearly these decades on he is closer. The specter of cocaine on the brain is one thing. A terrible thing to behold even in someone you ostensibly love. Some people can stare it down… Bruce clearly couldn’t and the reader can only speculate why this is so. But it in Jimmy’s and so many cases, addiction is only the echo of a troubled soul — in Jimmy it is the lost boy — who lived forward in the shell of Jimmy the suburban man. Clearly ending the madness of drink and drugs just started the long journey home for the lost boy. Perhaps passing the whiff of Bruce’s memory as it passed in the cool morning dew gets Jimmy closer.

I like this character development. Please keep Jimmy vital so we can see how it plays out.

Not everyone gets or needs a Yankee Stadium moment.

He went through life one day at a time until he realized he was heavily laden and needed rest. Very real and disturbing. Or is it just my mortality showing?
