I'm Beau.

I find myself growing more and more distant and hostile to the world around me. In the end, all I really care about is knowledge and beauty. I attend college, but unlike most of my peers who are there to start a career, I am mostly there for the philosophy and science classes.

I run a little Lj community called savoring_beauty where people (mostly me) post images of artworks and discuss theatre, opera, music, whatever.

greetings!

i just stumbled upon this community while trippin' through the garden of lj and thought i'd join and give it a whirl.

i absolutely loved the bohemian manifesto that was written quite awhile back. was a very inspiring read.

okay, a bit about myself...i go by the name daisy. was given to me over 13 yrs ago on my first day of college and i love it.
~~~
i'm married to my soulmate and we escaped big city life last august and moved out to the country, leaving the security of my husband's well paying job to live a life we've always dreamed of. financially its been a disaster. but spiritually, and artistically, wow. it's been a life saver.
~~~
i write (young adult and chick-lit...plus reams of poetry and bizarre quirky short stories), i sew (interesting frocks and accessories), i bead (jewelery of all kinds...gothic, hippy, and belly dancing accessories), i pray (to the goddess and many celtic and hindu gods), i dance (belly dancing, ecstatic/trance, tribal and i'm always exploring other forms).
~~~
i've recently been introduced to ATC's (art-trading-cards) and art-journalling.
~~~
i'm at my happiest when i'm creating or as i read once on a friend's lj...cre-ART-ing. :D
and dancing. i feel so free and so connected to the earth.
~~~
well i think i've rambled on long enough.
i look forward to being apart of this community.
thanx for having me.
:D

Tell me, what are your thoughts on religion? (organized, official, or not)
Does religion affect our society in a good way or in a bad?

This originally was a private journal entry, but I want to know what your thoughts on the matter are, so here it is.

Rainbow

At first, I couldn't understand why during such a sorrowful time, I felt hope. I couldn't fathom how the streaks of indigo, red, yellow, violet, and green could crash into my soul and fill its brimming caverns with... hope. How does a colorful arch flowing from the heavy black clouds like a tropical waterfall could make the world seem right, even in the breadth of tragedy? Rainboes don't last forever. Then again, neither does the rain that makes them. After every rain there is a rainbow, majestic and proud, filling the sky with the light and joy it craved during the storm. So it is with hardship: there is always the rainbow to make it better. Most often, others are the rainbows. The support we give each other in times of needs is the rainbow that stands up to misfortune, giving us hope and faith.
Everything must come to an end, though. That is true for rain and the rainbow, for sorrow and its uplifting For weeks we have grieved as one tragic event after another has thrown itself on our battered spirits, like salt stuck in open wounds. But today when it stopped raining and the sky boasted a noble streak of color, a sense of hope came with it. Some how, though I didn't know how, I knew everything would be okay. Tonight I discovered how it would be, and why it is okay. Tonight I saw the efforst of people around the world to bring food, water, aid, and solice to those victims of the dark side of nature. Tonight I saw three hundred messages praising the life of a tragically lost friend, student, son, and person. Tonight I saw and felt the tears of grief, fear, and protection for kin in danger in a foreign land.
All of these are the rainbows to their rain; all are support for catastrophe, like yin is for yang.

Last Resort, First One Taken

Scarlet blood smeared across a thin, faded mattress
Drips
Drops
Splatters

An ivory cardigan is marred by innocence.
No, naivety...
Despair.
Anger.
Contempt.

Her mind: the war,
Her wrist: the front line,
The weapon of choice: a blade, carefully positioned,
Slices her silky pink flesh,
And another thread is spun into her red lace of hate.
One more, she thinks...
She wonders what heaven’s like.
With each slash
There is less pain,
There is less life,
Till the window’s fogged, and the image wanes,
And there is nothing
But a battered radio humming bleak Pink Floyd

And scarlet blood smeared across a thin, faded mattress
Dripped
Dropped
Splattered

A young girl is marred by innocence.

In an effort to get the ball rolling I have decided to introduce myself.

I am an American living in Singapore. I have also lived in Australia. I have not lived in the states since I was fifteen. That was six years ago. When I am not procrastinating, I like to knit, bake pastry, take photos, drink wine, and write (although not all at the same time). Singapore can be a bit boring if you are not wealthy, but it has some truly stunning architecture. Modern Asian skyscrapers can be found next to transplanted 19th century British buildings (used for administration during colonial times) and Peranakan shophouses. It is amazing to see all of these things clustered in such a small place. I promise to take pictures as soon as I have my equipment in order.

Whilst wandering around a lively Budapest-ian street close to 10 PM, I came across possibly the most beautiful sight one is ever likely to have the pleasure to witness....

THE MOULIN ROUGE!Collapse )

You know, I'm going to start doing some serious PR for this community. Right after I've finsished this essay on the themes of bohemianism in modern film. Should be interesting. I might post it here when I'm done, if anyone fancies a read just let me know, and I won't hasten to remind you about copy writing laws et cetera.

I like this community a lot and it seems a shame that it is so empty so i shall do everything within my power to recruit new members and to add more posts and bulk it out a bit.

I believe Tanya is planning to add some pictures of the moulin rouge in Budapest from her trip to Hungary in the summer, which incidently has it's own midgit doorman. I hope she will take me there next year *hint hint*
