Many Flowers and Many Winds

"Hold your breath and see the anemone, down by the high-tide pilings in the wharf, a flowerlike, ghostlike, windlike creature, anémos, jelly buttercup whirly and whorling. It behaves like flora in its fauna limbs, it floats like helium in its water world. Dulse and ribbonweeds sway with its sea leaps, mussels and whelks sit beside it when it rests. It has few enemies, the anemone; and melts when touched.

The oceans support so many ghosts, many flowers and many winds, but none is more vegetable than this air, none more dancing than this music, the music of the origami umbrella's name, anemone of the ways, translucent breeze.

Anemone, anemone.

Breathe" - Bradford Morrow (Anemone)

A few things that tickle me....
  • These sea urchin skeletons from my uncle!

  • These urchin pins sent to me by my mother, created by artist Keri Rounding....Satch calls them anemone pins. "Anemones sting, mama", Satch warns me whenever I wear them.

  • Light as seen from within our urchin skeletons

And I am especially tickled about THIS! Have a good weekend, everyone!

Hi there, just found you. I love and identify with the idea that a mother must be a mother but also needs creative outlets like she needs air. Anyway, thanks for inspiration, I'll keep checking back here.
