Green Room - Week 5 - Day 1

Good afternoon. In case you missed it:

We lost a couple people last night: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/881751.html

gained new topic choices: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/882027.html

and started some discussions in the Work Room: http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/882246.html


What else is going on in the world that people may have missed? (other than Rey toys coming out soon!)

I am still all broken up about Bowie. It just doesn't seem possible that he's gone. He's been one of my heroes for as long as I can remember. I mean, I got muddled through losing Robin Williams somehow but this is just too big a thing. I have this huge emotion inside me and I can't seem to get it out.

I've never been particularly torn up about the death of someone I didn't know before this. Previously it was all, "well, that's sad, but..."

And then Bowie died and I was left going, "wow, I never thought"—and the "what I never thought" varies, but it all comes down to, "you're gone? how? why? we need you back!"

It's a low-grade kind of depression for me. And I'm trying to concretize why. He affected so many lives and for different reasons. There is no question that he was archetypal and that his simultaneous creation and passing were both borne in on the rising tide of the universal unconscious sea. It's been humbling and amazing and deeply sad.

I think Blackstar helps me get through it, in a way. He knew it was coming, he made art out of it. And some bits, well, he kind of thumbed his nose at us a bit. It takes a measure of profound acceptance to pull something like that together. And I kind of want to pull myself together just to ... I don't know, be worthy of the consideration he put into it.

I wrote about it in my paper journal today. I thought it would make it more "real" to me, but it didn't. It just led to me getting some *really* weird looks at the bus stop.

You'd think these kids had never seen a grown woman with purple hair, scribbling in a notebook with tears slipping down her face.

Yo, folks! Need some inspiration!

I'm not coming up with *ANY* ideas... but I'd rather not use a bye.

All I know for sure is that I don't want to use the 'void' prompt, as I kind-of did a piece on that topic a while back. That leaves 'organic', 'pupa' and 'waffles'... but right now none of them are inspiring me.

In a word: Help?
