Hey that's just the way my friend Dr. Sandrine Brisset

Sandrine is against censorship. So am I.
Yet sometimes we need to protect the innocence, from the sad
ending - The Cardigans, Road 666 - The end is fairly gruesome
But I like the video, I am still not sure if it should be banned or not
If the video is banned then lots of cartoons have to be banned.
Have we moved on with Censorship Laws. I hope so. So much more knowledge has to be spread around.
How do we deal with frustration? How do we deal with feeling trapped in our own bodies. How do we feel when we can't talk. How do we communicate? As a society if we feel rejected, dumb, failures?
Your a failure, your a failure, your a failure.
How do we deal with this, at any age?
We paint, we write, we invent things, we learn, we study, don't we?
We escape into a world of fantasy, we do puzzles, we write poetry.
Which takes me to a place where I escape.
It's not Hollywood. It's a world of fiction. It's a world of biographies.
It's a world of intellect, academia, poetry. I don't feel like an alien. Yikes I feel normal.
So I am a nerd. Yes in the conventional sense, I am. I cover it up with gel nails and hair extensions and velour tracksuits. I do that to fit in.
I go out more, to fit in. I really try to talk and push my boundaries to fit in. I change activities. I change enviroments. I keep the constants, that is friends and comfort feelings. I do it all to fit in. IM NOT CRAZY. IM NOT A FREAK. IM COOL.
KEEP SAYING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN
EVENTUALLY YOU BELIEVE IT
Surround yourself with like minded people and you get to feel normal.
That's what I do. Just look.
ITS ENIGMA - RETURN TO INNOCENCE
Just say it
I'm not stupid, I'm not slow. Don't say the FFFF word
Just say, I do my own things.
I express things my own way - OKKKK
I had the great privilage of meeting Gabriel Fitzmaurice last year. It was at the launch of Lucinda Sly - A Woman Hanged
Gruesome Act isn't it. Well anyone who hangs a women, who has a family to feed and a gaggle of kids to love. They don't deserve to return to their innocence. They deserve to be punished, sent into coventry. Isn't that right.
It has been a long road and a long year for Gabriel Fitzmaurice. He did the translations on a book with Maidh Dainin O Se, Just this year gone.

It was an excellent book. It took my breathe away. It is haunting, and eerry and very creepy. It is everything you expect to read, when you pick up the cover, which is very eeeerrriiieee. She was hanged Lucinda. Who cut her down? Who found the pulse.
"Mammy can't come to the phone right now"
"She's not feeling well"
"She's not a bit well"
God love her, she didn't have that poor Lucinda. They say her spirit still haunts Carlow Shopping Centre. It's my pet hate, hanging people, public executions by drunkards with nothing else to do with their time. I mean who is next, anyone, brown eyes, brown skin, chinese eyes, having an affair, wearing a short skirt, wearing a bikini, ITS LUNACY, and needs to be punished accordingly. So the book is eerry and gruesome and all the things you would expect to find. God love us, the credited and acclaimed author was diagnosed with cancer a few weeks later and his sudden passing was a cruel blow to his family.
It was also a cruel blow to the translater, Gabriel Fitzmaurice. To loose your anchorman, your comfort friend is horrid. That reliable writer on the other side of facebook or on skype or at the end of the phone.
"Yera, I dunno now what to do with this bit"
"Yera leave it sure we'll go for a pint instead"
"Yera leave it, my head is wrecked from all this"
"They'll want it in German next and Japanese"
"Yera I'm not cut out for that at all"
It's the way us perculiar writers work you know. We are strange. We deal with our feelings through poetry.
I would imagine, Gabriel Fitzmaurice dealt with his loss through his collection of poems, "The Lonesome Road"
I like this song. It is comforting. It is like your best friend, your comfort, your buddy writer. May he rest in peace knowing he is so sadly missed.

It was so sad hearing Gabriel talk. Whilst I was immersed in his poetry. I could see the loss on his face and my empathy which some people don't see was ever present. Moyra followed suit. My empathy deepened. I think you will have to read Moyra's collection of poetry for yourself. Again, it is how the sisterhood of woman kind deals with pain, turbulence, loss, grief, love, emotion, the unequivocal and myriad mix of being just a normal human being. So we don't go crazy, so we feel a little normal. So in that small moment in time, we get our hurt, our loss, our love and our feelings out, we take to the paper, we take to the keyboard and we write.
What's becomes is sometimes a collection of most brilliant poetry. Check it out.
Moyra, who I don't know at the moment, but might do, if I am privileged enough she writes poetry. She is acclaimed, critically. So am I. It makes me feel normal, not CRAZY. Poetry is for us all. Every women, every man, lets get back to
Here's the link for Moyra
Thanks for All From
I like this song
