Sinful Sunday

….

today i started my thing called “sunday resolution”
i have posted 2 others (health and being happy) and am combining a 3rd with sinful sunday … romance and magic!

the last 13yrs have been empty for me (with the exception of some amazing people who walked into my life)

one of the things i found lacking was romance…
so fuck it! if i cant have that with others, i will give myself the romance i long for… candles, wine and relaxation

i love a nice dessert wine… golden in color and sweet on the tongue

but what is romance without magic!

bringing back what i had left behind or hide away
funny enough i shuffled the cards and picked at random… the magician
when placing the cards another came out… 7 of pentacles
i love the art of Stephanie Pui Mun Law
her interpretations always seem so much closer to who i am than the others i know or images i have seen

this is my new year…
a new me
resolutions i can keep
ones i will share

could it be true! a sequel to #Labyrinth


note.. a dear friend posted on facebook that he heard there was talk of a sequel being made of the film Labyrinth… i pounced on this idea and went hunting for more details… below is the random words that poured from within and were posted as a comment… of course i had to share it here as well

i really hope the jim henson company create a sequel and make it with as much care as the first, wit the same passion for telling a good story from multiple perspectives… 

this needs to happen!

when the movie came out on VHS i must have watched it 100 times within the first 3 months!

the dialog made me think, the “omg what has he got in his pants!” aspect never did much for me as i already knew at a young age about the human body (parenting done right with lots of art books at the ready)… but what made me question and keep questioning was the subtlety.. something i just couldn’t grasp!

i was the odd child growing up on monty python (flying circus as well as the films), dr who and the normal sesame street, reading rainbow, thundercats, voltron, gummy bears combination.. i recognized something in labyrinth that i couldn’t place until many years later! i already “knew” david bowie as music was another art that was always at the ready

but what i learned, what made me question was the dynamics between everyone…mainly sarah and jareth.. it continued my search into the mind, the way personalities flow and what makes people special…as individuals, couples or a group..

what really pulled at my soul was a sort of domination and submission…

most people will miss this and can now read my words….go back and say…whoa! how did i miss it!!

but there was this “just fear me, love me, do as i say and i will be your slave” vs “you have no power over me” … my young mind boggled at that and i wanted more!

not interested in sex or the tension of male/female lust… no it was the mental stimulation! the mind games with softness and power, depth and meaning, contradiction that some how made sense and then trying to understand… how much is the character/writing vs how much is david bowie

reading his facial expressions.. even before the age of 10 i wanted to understand what i was seeing that even the adults around me failed to witness

kind of like going into any “kids” film and having jokes thrown in to help ease the “suffering” of the adults stuck in the audience.. the “oh don’t worry, you will get it when you’re older” kind of humor and situations…

again, being the odd child watching with enthusiasm.. i love lucy, dick van dyke, mary tyler moore, mash, abfab, faulty towers and so many others that had real thought put into their writing! real dialog that made you stop and go… “yes! this is entertainment!” .. ahhh the marx brothers!

but all of that seems gone from our viewing “diet”…

we now have “junkfood” for the soul with stupidity like the kardashians or the extreme with the newest fad of the 50 shades of how we can portray horrible writing, bad fan fiction and emotional/mental/physical abuse as a disguised attempt at understanding bdsm…

or simply taking a great film and remaking it with more magic, sexy bodies and ruining the reason the movie was wonderful in the first place… clash of the titans and 300 come to mind… i wont even get started on how they mutilated percy jackson…

and seriously folks!!!! why oh WHY is there no film/set of films based off the series “the death gate cycle” by margaret weis and tracy hickman!

**sigh**

so… my point…

labyrinth helped inspire me to think, to be more, to ask questions and believe in magic in one form or another… i like who i am and i love that i can see how this movie helped encourage me to be myself

all i ask is that they put in the same heart and soul into this sequel as with the first movie

.. i rarely pay to go to the cinema anymore… (american) living in france, the movies are awful if you don’t have them in original version and most are not worth my time to leave home…

but this … i want this

i want new lines to burn into my memory, new music to sing with and more magic to leave me dreaming…

the magic isn’t just mine but belongs to the next generation as well…

my 17yr old is going to school for fashion design, learning to dream up costumes and make them a reality

my 13yr old loves the sarcasm and wit in a well told story, the darkness that is there but not always bad

my 7yr old wanting that magic… the crystal balls which seem to dance

New week means …


…look for the magic and show off the new bra *evil grin*

Over the weekend I watched the movie “The Secret of Moonacre”, a very sweet film of magic and stories and….I loved the costumes!!

I love magic…to dream and be lost in the possibilities

So that feeling took over today when I got dressed, went out, had men flirt… I love the shy side to the French males here… at least in the country side

Later when I came home and had a few conversations and random thoughts

I decided to go into the garden and capture the magic I was feeling

Sadly the option of being Lil Red Ridding Hood in the forest with my dog, my lover…I was VERY disappointed to have my prior plans changed

Some of the magic
