I’ve been lucky enough to have pieces of art and music really speak to my soul.
The painting ” Lucifer ” by Von Stuck, the works of Mozart and the stories of M.R. James.
This song is among those works.

I am SUPER excited about ” Good Omens ” because David Tennant is in it and it has devils and angels which are super cool characters to read and write about.
But I have been let down a skosh.
The Four Horseman of the Apocalypse are the bad guys AGAIN.
Until then I’m on board here, though in a way I’m actually on horseback ( wink wink).
This statue was rescued from the ruins of Pompeii.
It was created by someone with a skilled hand and it lived in the sun and watched the stars come out and sometimes it saw them fall.
Then one day, through no fault of it’s own it was surrounded by death and covered with ash and it was forgotten-unaware of the world spinning on without it.
It was as if the statue had never existed at all.
Until someone found it
and brought it back to life.
I love this picture, this statue because I think that it’s story is my story too- but in this version I am cast in marble and beauty.
It makes some of my dark journey feel like it was worth the trip.
Ragtag Daily Prompt: Unaware
This is my dog Hamish, I write a lot about him here at My Bones
He’s pretty great- a little naughty at times but as long as he doesn’t try to steal anyone’s car or create a fake profile on Facebook, I figure why stress it?
He’s a good dog and he doesn’t have a mean bone in his body.
Unlike some people I know- myself included.
So here’s something that Hamish does when I get in late.
He leaves his favorite toy in the window- it’s an ice cream cone and it smells like strawberries.
When I walk in I can see it there and I always go to the window and pick it up and say to Hamish, ” Look, it’s the best toy ever and it looks like an Ice Cream Cone- how great is that?”
If I put it down right away Hamish will pick it up and throw it at me- which if you’re not ready for it, that toy of his is solid plastic and it will hurt upon impact.
So I carry it around for a bit and when I see him I tell him I love it.
Then he carries it off to his stash where it stays until I find myself coming in late- but no worries because when I get it I’ll find the best toy in the world in the window.
My sweet reward from my sweet boy for coming home at last – a brilliant job well done.
