Dining On Dionysus

Royal Rosamond Press:

Those who have read the classics know what is coming in August. Now that the Stadium of Men has burned down, there is no stopping them, the Raving Ones. I posted on the Maenads August 26 2013, seven months before Belle and the Valkyrie came raging into my life. Then, Krysta and her women helpers, appear. They are getting ready, for their festival when they will dine on my flesh once more. It has been too long. What an honor for a poet and artist to go out like this, I enduring a thousand cuts from their crescent moon knives, down by the river, under the moonlight, the statue of Eugene Skinner covering his ears so he will not hear their bloodcurdling shrieks. She will be there, Krysta’s little sister ‘The Beautiful One’. She has been told, I am ‘The One’. She will be driving up from Orange County with a serious stereo system installed in her Love Mobile. She’s a chorographer, and she wants to dance the Godzilla Run with me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dTTlOke0d4

Maenads have been depicted in art as erratic and frenzied women enveloped in a drunken rapture, the most obvious example being that of Euripides’ play The Bacchae. His play, however, is not a study of the cult of Dionysus or the effects of this religious hysteria of these women. The maenads have often been interpreted in art in this way. To understand the play of Euripides though one must only know about the religious ecstasy called Dionysiac, the most common moment maenads are displayed in art. In Euripides’ play and other art forms and works the Dionysiac only needs to be understood as the frenzied dances of the god which are direct manifestations of euphoric possession and that these worshippers, sometimes by eating the flesh of a man or animal who has temporarily incarnated the god, come to partake of his divinity. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maenad

maenads-silenusmaenadI watched Cats last night. I was reminded of Maenads who worshiped Dionysus whose mother was Peresphone in one legend. Born of in the bowels of Hades? Phantom of the Opera, the Master Playwrite, Master of Disguises – and The Ceremonial Dance!

Like Christianity many groups of peoples created their own cult so as to own the whole of Dionysus. Indeed, Jesus Christ is a Dionysus Copy – but why?

All members of my family suffered from alcoholism. All but one of the Rosamond Women were drinkers. My daughter sleeps with Bacchus and raises my seven year old grandson to be a champion boozer – someday. When I got sober I declared myself a Nazarite. My family hated me for doing that, and excommunicated me.

In a conversation I had with my aunt Lillian she describes this neighbor cat outside her sliding glass door in the rain. It wants to…

Rosalie Ritz and Upstairs Art Association

Royal Rosamond Press:

Ben Williams was on our board of directors. You would see him at his desk we reserved for him in one of the the bay windows overlooking Broadway St. in Downtown Oakland where roamed real radicals who owned real targets and goals. To be shut out by radicals who targeted me, and a civic character who has no respect for real history, is to burn down the real thing of real things. Since Belle and Alley lied to the people, I have been thinking of going back to Oakland. Now the stadium is gone, there is nothing here – here! If the Black Panthers had gotten their way, there would be no ISIS. There would have been PEACE for the last forty years. https://diva.sfsu.edu/collections/sfbatv/bundles/190220 http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_22234036/famed-television-broadcaster-ben-williams-dead-at-85

I found Rosalie Ritz before her huge easel in and old Victorian office building on Broadway in downtown Oakland. I had come to get some more brass fittings from the old bait and tackle shop, but, they had moved. I was the only model boat sailor in the East Bay. I had rigged a automatic tacking device on my catamaran that would eventually bring it to the edge of the unused model boat lagoon that was built by the WPA located in Berkley’s Aquatic Park. It was all mine, now.  The WPA had built Jaunita Miller’s Woodminster Theater and Water Wonder. I made my model at the time Altamont was being lauded as the West Coast Woodstock. My friend Peter Shapiro asked me if I was going and I told him it is going to be a disaster. I am a prophet.

I was moving away from the hippie scene…

The Plastic School of Clean Mechanical Evil

Most Eugenius folks knew it was just a matter of time before the Plastic School Of Clean Mechanical Evil did its thing to Civic Stadium. The PSCME used fire this time to wipe clean something old, wooden, and cherished. Gone is our beloved Human Scale, our cozy Mom and Pops Goodness, our home away from home, our signature get-away that allowed us to plop our butts down on some old wood covered with twenty-two coats of grey-chipped paint, that failed to hide the deep timber wood interior we felt was there, and would always be there, and – now its gone.

What created that dark cloud of smoke was all the lead in that old paint. The people were warned this lead would come raining down on them, and it best not to breathe.

And here they come, from Orange County I suspect, the Clean Expensive Crew that hates everything that is old, and looks like it contains human sweat, and the petrified farts of old farts. They can’t wait to make everything look just like where they come from, the place most folks can’t go – because it is too expensive to be there. And, that’s the point. They don’t want us Old Timber Guys to think we got it made when we pay $6 bucks for something that could be had for $60 smackaroos. Then, you go to buy a cup, verses a cap of ice cream with the kids, and there go a $100 bucks down the drain. Here, have some Sticker Shock and Awe.

Look at the image of that dude sitting up high in the ball park, his wallet still overflowing with civic security because he’s not sitting on plastic and chrome. Note the glaring imperfections that are saving hin money. And he knows it!

Making Poor People feel even poorer is the Evil Republican Past Time. The burning down of Civic stadium is a reminder we little devils can’t balance the National Budget – to save our souls. Even the poor beggars in our streets have got in on the action, it not enough to hand them a metal coin, or dirty cash. They want their stuff handed to them by a slick group of providers, that traipse after them as they drink and vomit down the block.

“Can I interest you in a clean plastic porta-potty? How about a mini porta-house with wheels? Check it out, we have Half-jobs that are not really work, they are plastic faux jobs that allows you to dine for free in our swank diners for the wretched – delivered fresh from Orange County. I mean, we are almost giving you a complete life – for free! But let’s not go too far – lest people get the wrong impression.”

And how much are John and Jane Public going to have to pay for this cornucopia of eternal incompacitation, they not given a clue when these Hobos will be back on their feet?”

“Just keep it coming!” Says Big Red and Lil Belle from the Public Relations Firm of Deep Pockets of Pity. “We’ll tell you when to stop!”

For over a decade We the People have heard the pleas “Save this! Save that!” and we got it, that it was going to cost us money. So, did any of the selfish folks send someone some money? Apparently not. We saw the weeds grow high around our old-fashioned ball park, and at night they had a guy in a hoody going around smashing beer bottles, so that when the sun rose, we would be hit with flashing points of blight!

You just knew then he was paving the way for The Torch, the phantom that wipes the slate clean, so the new mechanical crap can be hauled up from Los Angeles and erected over night, before our complaints can reach the Mayor, who climbs up on stage exposing her white underwear to prove to us……she is still Human. But, what about us!

I tried to warn you Godzilla was coming to town. Did anyone listen!

No sooner did I tell Krysta about Belle and Anand, and I was backing out, then she got one of HER PEOPLE to evict me from the City of Eugene FB page. She had lured me down a dark Alley and hit me over the head with the Fake Sex Charges. I didn’t get any sex, but, someone got a shit load of funding!

SAVE BELLE – FROM THE MONSTER!

“RUN FROM THE MONSTER!”

SAVE THE DOWNTOWN

SAVE THE WHITEAKER

SAVE MACK COURT

SAVE CIVIC STADIUM

SAVE THE HOMELESS

SAVE THE EUGENE CELEBRATION

When they saw my videos shot in Altan Baker Park where the Big Idea Jonny was giving my Big Ideas away for free, I had to be stopped. When Belle heard me giving my Bohemian cosmology away for free, she hung a price tag on My Dream to return everything to the Human Scale – and slash prices in half.

The true citizens of the Emerald Valley, know what is comng, what will replace Civic Stadium. It will cost $20 bucks just to look at it. Then, you get to the ticket window where you will be sexually abused as the vacuum hoses go for your wallet – and your Civic Balls. Once inside, you will sit down on fart-resistant seats with tiny holes in the bottom that whisk your nasty smell into giant tubes, so giant fans can blow them sky high. You will not spot any wood anywhere. Not as much as a wooden toothpick.

As the hot flames rose above the trees, you could hear the sad lament;

“We’re losing a huge chunk of our history here. And we will never get it back!”

Here are two of the posts I ran pasty Krysta Albert, who bid her Sterilized Board of Planners to – SNUB ME! She then sent her posse of Nurse Ratchets out to assassinate my character, too.

“Don’t listen to this un-medicated crazy man who is out to hurt the fair ladies of our town! Come, celebrate with me and Doctor Strange Love! Be groovy, or be square!”

Yeah…………right! This is another Bull Run, the running of the Suckers past the Parasites. Not one tie-dyed vender, or homeless performing clown, is on my side, or the side of history. Nothing is allowed to be authentic anymore, lest any kind of standard is set. To see a video of a faux artist laying out her art on an old blanket at the first FOE event, made me want to vomit. There is way too much art in the world. So, let it be known I turned Krysta into the Art Police.

I am going t set up a site where citizens can tell each other on the internet how much THEY GAVE TO SAVE. They don’t have to use their full name, just initials, lest Alley Valkyrie and her Vicious She-things swoop down from Portland, and lay fowl smelling turds in your planter boxes.

“I SW gave $20 to a beggar, $10 to save Civic, $40 to OCCUPY.”

Time to cut out the Middleman! We can adopt a Bum, directly. As long as we don’t ask them to work, everything will be hunky-dory! However, maybe Anand Holtham Keathley could have organized a Homeless Folks Fire Patrol, who would be very willing to shoo away kids playing with matches in exchange for three meals a day? There’s going to be meeting at City Hall to decide whether all Fourth of July fireworks are going to be banned. It’s like Eugene is shutting down……dying!

What I miss the most about Civic Stadium were the young teenagers that came there with their beautiful dates – to show them off! Young men, who did not come from money, could afford $12 dollars, and owned some Civic Pride amongst The People. There was a Beauty Contest going on. Not one beauty was hunched over pecking at her cellphone with a gaggle of her girlfriends, while the boys pecked away in their group. These beautiful young women practiced good posture, and………..BEING SEEN!

No one looks at each other anymore. The PSCME closed that shit down. We now know there is a heavy fine for beholding beauty – DIRECTLY! You have to purchase a spendy I-Phone, pay for the use of it with your plastic credit card, then, make a pass at her.

“Hey, good-looken!  Are you behind the wheel of your car, yet. Text me when you are!”

There will be no game today. Big Brother Nurse is watching your – pocket book! What’s coming to replace Civic Stadium, is being hatched out by the Paranoid Planning Committee, who are afraid if they charge you what they want to charge you, no one will show, and profits are out the door. So, what is that exact price of admission going to be?

WE WILL BE PENALIZED FOR OUR LOSS. We old timers know this is a victory in the battle against dirty old men, hippies, and the poisoned pedagogy! It’s a clean woman’s world. They want everything fresh and new – and expensive! Down with cheap dates!  Women don’t want us men to have our beloved sanctuary were we can watch a MAN’S GAME!

It’s alllllllllllll gone! The only game left, is to spot Ken Kesey sitting in the bleachers of Civic Stadium – of yesteryear!

That’s it, my Sucker Booth. I’ll blow-up an old black and white photo of Civic and put it behind curtains. My sign will say “Spot Ken and win a Panda”. My mark will have fifteen second to point out Kesey, who will not be in the crowd, because no photo of him at Civic, exists. But – what they hey! It’s all in fun! After all, I am not a Sexual Predator!

“Mr. McMurphy. Your hand. It’s smearing my window!”

Did I Capture Big Donor?

 “Mary Broadhurst: yeah well…I’m a bit concerned about labels being applied to this guy. obviously he has issues. but will calling him a psychopath push him over the edge. did anyone consult with Belle before coming to her rescue? perhaps she had a plan as to how to deal with this…

May 9 at 8:57am ·
 Alley Valkyrie: “Yes, I talked to Belle.”

Right after I filmed Belle Burch at Ken Kesey Square, a anonymous women gave the homeless $400,000 dollars. Nathan “Red” Showers in the video about this gift. Red and Belle have a chat in my video. Mary Broadhusrt is a attorney and member of OCCUPY. She has been involved in SLEEPS that Ambrose Holtham Keatley is spokesperson for. His father, Anand,  supported Whoville, and Volunteers for OCCUPY Medical that is mentioned in the Donor article.

Belle approached me as a prospective donor to SLEEPS, after she may have got a pledge from the woman who conceals her face when she sees my camera pointed at her. Why is she hiding her face. No one else is doing this. This is not Belle’s first rodeo. No shrinking violet is she. She even sticks her tongue out at me.

“anonymous benefactor took up the issue”

“Whoville camper and organizer Nathan “Red” Showers says the Whoville campers are like a family and many of them relied on the emotional support, on-site warming center and food donations available at the camp.

“It was all donations from churches and organizations that support us. They paid for tons of propane that we went through,” Showers says. “It was beautiful how many people were just out there, ready and willing. We need another chance.”

Like a FAMILY. Hmmm! Red does not mention donations from individuals, lone wolves. Did anyone ask for a receipt for tax purposes? I mean, surely Mary Broadhurst has set up a non-profit status for SLEEPS, and gave everyone lessons on how to be legal and kosher with the IRS.

The post that Krysta Albert found very disturbing was the one I sent to Anand Holtham Keathley asking about contributions. You can detect there is going to be competition as to what groups gets the lion’s share. This secret donor is going to check the media to see her name NOT mentioned. If she comes across my blog, she might suggest everyone but SLEEPS – get some!

How many members of SLEEPS held an emergency meeting, and decided to bring in their big gunslinger, Alley Valkryie. Surely Ananad is interested in getting more public exposure. Is this the reason he got chummy with Krysta Albert, and why she did not want anyone to get chummy with me, he knowing I have been an advocate for the homeless? Do you think Belle and Krysta have met? Note how the dude in this video adds that all small donations are accounted for? Did any other Suckers see what I saw, and they confronted the Predators, and, Alley is in their face threatening to tell their wives prince charming tried to pay a homeless woman for sex? Big Red is lurking about, acting like a…………?

“Why your son and his anarchist gang broke away from OCCUPY raises questions. What was the nature of the falling out. I hope Festival of Eugene has a reputable firm handling donations. As a board member – denied access to the Festival of Eugene Facebook page – I will go to interested agencies to make sure my name is not dragged into the mud. I have a reputation to protect”.

I find it interesting that Belle, Alley, Ambrose, Anand, and Mary find my posts very disturbing, but, all the homeless psychos on the streets are innocent little lambs who can do no wrong. These Savors poo-pooh the real fear normal people have of them – for good reason!  It appears there was a conspiracy to deprive me of my Civil Rights. Member so SLEEPS would not want me to testify against them a a City Hall meeting, a forum they use to attract donors. People give Alley money for being a ballsy-bitch!

Alley Valkyrie; ” I will also say that going downtown would be a mistake, as EPD is quite aware of who and what you are, and they have nine uniformed officers downtown. But then again, you said you were going to City Council and you didn’t have the balls to do that, and…See More

Alley Valkyrie: And if you do go downtown, you will have to deal with me personally, by the way.”

I talked to my first girlfriend who recently saw the video of Belle. She is going to write down what she told me, being, she never saw a person, or an image of someone that reminded her of herself, as Belle Burch. Marilyn even noticed the mold on her neck. This is like dejavu, and the Moulin Rouge, she added.

When Ientered Ken Kesey Square I turned on my camera to record the event, because after finding my chronically homeless friend dead in his new apartment Hud-VASH just got him, I had been avoiding the homeless because my heart was still broken like so many who loved Hollis William’s. When I saw Belle, it was love at first sight.

I tried to establish a foundation where  deceased Veteran pay for the funeral of the next fallen warrior. I have a right to do volunteer work in my community, and serve the homeless am I so compelled.  To be harassed and denied this right by people who say they love the homeless, is suspect.

I am now seeking a second and third opinion on this matter. Mary Broadhurst, and Anand Holtham Keathley know I do not fit the profile of psychopath and predator. Are they afraid of Alley Valkyrie who is doing damage control – and knows what has been going on behind the scenes.? This is why it is extremely important you do things on the up and up.

Eugene Donor Commits $400,000 For New Shelter Site

Article | April 17, 2014 – 1:00am | By Adrian Black

As Eugene city leaders floundered last week in relocating the former residents of the Whoville homeless camp, an anonymous benefactor took up the issue, offering a $400,000 donation to establish a sanctuary on private property.

The pledge came as a direct response to, among general grievances, the unyielding position of City Manager Jon Ruiz and others willing to leave the destitute in limbo. “I wanted to step up,” the donor tells EW, “because I saw the city making an attempt to push these people out. They’re citizens, not strangers.”

A Eugene native with capital to spare from the success of a local family business, the donor says the wealth was a matter of pure chance, adding that a privileged position in society obligates one to prevent a human rights catastrophe when no one else will.

For the donation to be seen through, the money has to be channeled properly through the fiscal sponsorship of a nonprofit organization. This would be accomplished through an existing entity with 501(c)(3) status, such as Opportunity Village Eugene or Community Alliance of Lane County. An alternative could be for SLEEPS (Safe Legally Entitled Emergency Places to Sleep) or the Nightingale Public Advocacy Collective to attain such status — the latter is already pending.

It’s now up to Mary Broadhurst, an attorney and advocate for the unhoused, and others representing the advocacy group Homeless Health Sanctuary, to coordinate sponsorship and fulfill the multiple stipulations attached to this unforeseen act of philanthropy.

“We’re looking to buy private property — a single site for something that goes beyond a 30-person rest stop,” Broadhurst says. “Initially, it would be tents on platforms, but it would transition into micro-housing.”

Semi-permanent occupants would be expected to share the space with those seeking single use overnight stays. The site would also include a health stop, where twice a week residents and passers-through could be evaluated, presumably by Occupy Medical or like volunteers. An information station would be developed to point the weary toward free meals and other community resources. The donor put a specific focus on the site needing to be self-sustaining beyond land purchase and startup costs.

The donor remains anonymous to keep the focus on the issue not the donor, and to avoid criticism from a business community where some might shame the donation: “Developers don’t want the parents of university students to see all these homeless people. It decreases the property value. They have a lot to gain from sweeping them under the rug.”

“Facebook message from Alley Valkerie

“I’m going to make this very simple for you. I don’t know if you know who I am, but I sure as hell know who you are, and when you fuck with my friends, you fuck with me. Stop writing about Belle or I am going to make your life very difficult. I mean it. If I see one more word about her on your blog, your FB, or anywhere else, I will make sure that you experience all the fear and discomfort that she is experiencing right now. And no, this isn’t a physical threat, so don’t try to play victim. Frankly, I encourage you to contact EPD, as they already know all about you. I will not do anything illegal, but mark my word you will regret it if you write one more word about her. I will make sure that the entire community knows exactly how much of a sick fuck you are. Your picture, your name, and “samples” of your writing will be posted on every bulletin board in town. There will not be a single person in the Eugene/Springfield area who won’t know that you’re a sick stalker who won’t leave a stalker who won’t leave a young girl alone. Cut it out. Now. This is your first, last, and only warning.”

Alley Valkerie on facebook message.

“Please, go ahead and blog my threat.
You have no fucking idea what you’re getting yourself into
You also have no idea how many people are already on to you, and how many people have my back. We also have six other mutual friends who are going to learn about your behavior ASAP
And just so you know as well: if you write anything about me that could be construed as defamatory, you will be hearing from my lawyers ASAP.”

Valkyrie questions the legality of shutting down the public property, but Mia Cariaga of the Eugene city manager’s office writes in an email that the property “is not open for public use of any kind.”

Advocate Mary Broadhurst says that contrary to the perception she’s heard from City Manager Jon Ruiz, Eugene community members are very supportive of the camp, which has allowed many of the chronically unhoused, some with substance abuse and mental health issues, to have shelter and help one another. Ruiz is “rubbing shoulders with the country club set,” Broadhurst says, who are the ones who want the unhoused out of sight.

Sue Sierralupe of Occupy Medical, which also opposes closing the camp, says, “Whoville exists because people support it. The bathrooms, the handwashing station, the food, the tents, the blankets, the medical supplies all exist because our citizens support it.”

Occupy Medical says that “eviction of Whoville will only increase the risk of exposure and transmission of illnesses that have been otherwise successfully prevented or treated with our partnership,” and the free medical care group says that it has treated everything from the flu, including H1N1, to skin conditions.

http://www.eugeneweekly.com/20140123/news-briefs/will-eugene-save-unhoused-whoville

Broadhurst and Valkyrie say they are frustrated with media reports, based on the city’s press release, that indicate there is somewhere for Whovillians to go. The city cites expanded car camping, Opportunity Village and a rest-stop pilot program, but Broadhurst says while the community has made efforts to house those in need there are not enough beds for even a third of the area’s homeless. She says contrary to the idea that providing housing for the homeless will attract more homeless, “94 percent of the unhoused are local folks.”

Here is one attempt to help our houseless citizens. It comes from Utah, a Republican state. Here is their homepage. http://www.theroadhome.org/ They are part of the Housing First movement. Here is their page on Rapid Rehousing. http://www.theroadhome.org/services/housing/rapid-rehousing/ They may be something in this model which could apply here. Looking at it from a medical perspective, being houseless increases the risk to many disorders including malnutrition, poor wound healing, sleep deprivation, poor diabetes management and its attendant cardiovascular problems, hypothermia and PTSD. To prevent these and many other disorders multiple treatments may be required but the first and foremost is a prescription for housing. Other resources may be needed depending on the individual, but all require housing as a primary resource to add the stability necessary for any other improvements.

It is sadly ironic that some of those most vulnerable in our society will have what little they have taken away around Martin Luther King Jr. day. At the end of his life MLK was involved in the Poor People’s Campaign to address issues of economic justice. The city says they are just asking those at Whoville to move, but many of those involved say there are far fewer spaces than are needed. It is inhumane to make people move who have no good alternative. As a nursing student we are taught that “Homeless patients have even fewer resources than the poor. They are often jobless and do not have the advantage of shelter and must continually cope with finding a place to sleep at night and finding food. Chronic health problems tend to worsen because of poor nutrition and the inability to store nutritional foods. In addition, the homeless population is usually walking the streets and neighborhoods to seek shelter, and they lack a balance of rest and activity. There is a startling increase in adolescent homelessness. The homeless adolescent is usually without a nuclear family and has greater health care risks. Homelessness is a major public health issue. The fastest growing section of the homeless population is families with children. This includes complete nuclear families and single-parent families. It is expected that 3.5 million people are homeless and 1.35 million are families with children. Poverty, mental and physical illness, and lack of affordable housing are primary causes of homelessness (National Coalition for the Homeless, 2010). Homelessness severely affects the functioning, health, and well-being of the family and its members. Children of homeless families are often in fair or poor health and have higher rates of asthma, ear infections, stomach problems, and mental illness.” Until there is a better situation these houseless citizens should be allow to stay on public land. I note that the old City Hall is empty. Use that to provide shelter from the cold. It is painful to consider but it is absolutely true that you could end up houseless in this society. There, but for the grace of god go us all. I know because I was houseless for years. Now I own a house, a business and am in my last year of the of the RN nursing program. You do not know the suffering these people have been through, why they are where they are and you certainly do not know what they need if you think you can just close Whoville with no serious implications. Rather than closing Whoville we should be supporting that community while we find empty buildings to use, like the old City Hall, and others. Long term we need to provide the resources to get people in a stable situation. Many of these people have untreated PTSD from war, domestic abuse, childhood abuse or being houseless too long. I know. I’ve been there. There is a new direction called Housing First which helps houseless people get housing immediately while providing resources these citizens need so they can stabilize their lives. The Utah version with web links, I listed above. I encourage you all to consider they long term value to treating everyone as the family they really are. Peace.

‘The Rosamond’ An American Privateer

Famous American Privateers.

Several days ago I discovered there was a ship named Rosamond that was a Privateer. I wonder if she was owned by Captain Samuel Rosamond of Charleston. She was sunk with all hands lost. She was carrying $100,000 in plunder. I have been looking as to why the Rosamonds got up and left South Carolina and moved to Mississippi. Did Samuel mortgage everything in order to purchase this ship, including his two homes on Bay? Was this ship deliberately grounded so the fortune would not have to be shared with other investors? The Rosamond family bought several tracts of land in Mississippi and built plantations on them.

The ship above in the USS Providence carrying eight guns. The Rosamond would be of this size.

Every American Grandson would love to hear stories of family Pirates. Tyler Hunt will not be hearing any stories from his grandfather for…

“TO THE ROSSETTIS”

Royal Rosamond Press:

I posted this the day before I met Belle Burch. She wanted to know about his blog and would have read this.

Yesterday I received in the mail a book I ordered on E-Bay. I quickly scanned it to see if their were any illustrations or photographs. Then, I found it, what amounts to my personal Holy Grail. Joaquin Miller dedicated his book of poems ‘Songs of The Sun-Land’ to the Rossetti family that includes Gariel, Michael, and, Christine. Gabriel was a artist and poet, Michael, a publisher, and Christine, a poet.

“TO THE ROSSETTIS”

There is controversy over this dedication. Michael is against it. He is critical of Miller’s poems that takes the reader to the Holy Land. Joaquin is describing a personal relationship with the Savior that reminds me of how Bohemians and Hippies would view Jesus, he a Nature Boy of sorts.

Gabriel, who had Joaquin over to his house for dinner, where he met several members of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood seems to address his brother’s objections in a…

Capturing Belle

On Friday, I found her, at the Art Walk. I was filming a magical singer in Ken Keasy Square when I got a glimpse of her thru my lens. I come in for a close-up, and I gasp! Here she is, my model for Fair Rosamond that I have been searching for ever since I declared I was a Pre-Raphaelite in 1969. As an original hippie, I had always had long hair, but, now I was not holding back. I now carried a palette, my shield, and a brush, like a Knight’s Sword.

My hero, Dante Gabriel Rossetti had his Muse, Siddell, pose for his version of Fair Rosamond, but this image lacks refinement and good breeding. My Rosamond had to have a regal profile, a strong chin, and an angelic mouth. She would be more handson, than pretty. I did not want a poser, but a powerful personality that…
