Color Study- These Bright Hues Blind Me

redlips, purple scarf Color Study photography Color Study, ms fablesandcoffee

I’m starting my new job on Monday (and the three weeks of training that follows) and i’m honestly excited to once again be working in the pharmacy healthcare field and have already started bookmarking lovely things to reward myself with at the end of the training.

( Fiscal responsibility, thy name has never been M. )

The biggest downside to going back to work after almost 5 months off, apart from the obvious things i’ll miss ( like sleeping in as much as I want to, wandering around the house in pj’s and no bra, cutting down my coffee intake, ect) is the fact that I now have an hour commute both ways to look forward to each day, since me and the boyfriend bought our house no-where near the Dallas area where i’ll be working. Still, looking on the positive for this, i’ve queued up plenty of podcasts to listen to and am looking forward to polishing up my historical/mathematics knowledge with some help from the Great Courses. My best friend about died when I told her what my commute will be, but living outside of a city center and working in this field, I knew it was coming from the start and honestly, I really don’t mind it at all. It’s not ideal of course, 20 minute commutes are lovely and fantastic but I like singing in the car, having time to myself for my odd thoughts and weaving my way through rough traffic has always more fun to me than abrasive.

Anyways, my posts on here are going to be sporadic for the next month and a half probably, while I adjust to my new life schedule, get myself a good day planner and keep my caffeine addiction from resurfacing back to 5 cups a day.

On a side note, here’s something chill to listen to and dream of darkening winter days to come :

And There's A Storm, lyrics art

Hurricane by Halsey – Lyric Art

Halsey Lyrics, art exploration Processed with VSCOcam with hb2 preset And There's A Storm, lyrics art And There's A Storm You're Starting Now

Whenever I do this art thing in my blue colored pages, it’s usually because i’ve got lyrics stuck inside my head, or perhaps a really good line from a book kept knocking around my head over and over, unable to get out unless it came out of my fingertips. This time it’s Hurricane by Halsey, that got stuck up there needing a way out.

I’m not yet a fan of all her songs, or maybe it’ll end up being an acquired taste like the lovely Lana Del Rey, but either way, this song came up in a playlist I was listening to on Spotify and there was just something about it…that 90’s vibe, a fall of shivers down my spine at the feeling of memories not really my own coming up in my mind…it got stuck and this is what came out. I would suggest that if you haven’t heard the song before- to maybe listen to it without watching the video on youtube first, just to see what comes up in your own mind first.

Love, the idea

A Line Of Love, Around My Neck

Love, the necklace
Hands, chest and shoulders
Love, the idea
A line around my neck, Love
The love, necklace

Love, the idea of it in all forms. From the start of time to the very end, it remains such a constant, this bond we create with others and enforce throughout all our lives with words, actions, thoughts and creations.

Both so flimsy and unbreakable in the same breath. To me, the love for a friend is as strong as passionate romantic love, and to other the love for family is strongest of all. Millions of ways and counting to express this inexpressible occurrence of emotions.

I’m a writer, in the sense that I express myself best through words and prose infused ramblings. And though I have read my favorites, Neruda and Yeats,and dunked myself in the lovely throes of their expressions of love found, I’ve always thought that- to me at least- the idea of love was best expressed in music. The kind of music that transcends and breaks through language barriers and tugs at the hearts of everyone regardless of origin. Prose is lovely and fantastic, and the most skilled wordsmiths can break my heart apart with just one good sentence, but music puts me back together and to me at least, it cannot be surpassed in the stirring of emotions.

Songs that infuse in me the idea of love, to the very tips of my fingers:

Fyfsta– Olafur Arnalds

The Heart Asks Pleasure First– Michael Nyman

Beethoven’s 5 Secrets– The Piano Guys

We Had Today– Rachel Portman

Charms– Abel Korzeniowski

The Ash In Our Clothes– Sleeping At Last

Your Hands Are Cold– Dario Marianelli, Jean-Yves Thibaudet

Messier 45– Stellardrone

The Light– The Album Leaf

Adagio For Strings-The City Of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra

Cloud Atlas Finale– Tom Tykwer

Your Hand In Mine-Explosions In The Sky

Super awesome Drax phone cover

Drax the Destroyer and A Colorful Monday

ms fables and coffeeMs. fablesandcoffee Super awesome Drax phone cover

August has kicked July in the butt and come crashing in after it, and I for one couldn’t be more freakin’ grateful, cause July never does me any favors. Still getting my life together and amassing more legal pads with scribbled story notes on them than is probably considered sane. Also, the triple digit weather here in Texas has been preventing me something awful from going out to do my usual exploring, so that’s also been a supreme bummer- but! I’ve still got a couple of sets from Arkansas to post till I run dry, and if it comes down to it, you can bet i’ll just go melt on a sidewalk somewhere to get that exploring itch out from under my skin.

Finally got a new phone case, or well… got a new phone and then had to get a new phone case. I was half debating on getting that super fantastic Winter Soldier case I had before but the bf convinced me a new one was a better idea and then sneakily bought this Drax one i’d been coveting before I had even decided on yes.What an evil mastermind no? Anyways, If anyone’s interested in supporting the artist, or wants to check out more of their amazing art you can go here.

Music on Repeat:

Nothin On My Mind- Astronomyy
Cream On Chrome- Ratatat
Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic- Sleeping At Last
Hurricane- Halsey
Shyer- London Grammar

Temperance is the only way, mood board

Hans Zimmer and Inspiration

in my space and time
pin back buttons galore
A unique vision
Temperance is the only way, mood board
postcards and postit's
You know whats great for inspiration? To get you right out of the unfortunate dumps?

Hans Zimmer.

Seriously. At least for me, the best thing to do when my brains rotting from lackluster ideas and seeping slowly towards decay, that’s when I plunk myself down and blast some heavenly Zimmer tracks. That well known Pirates of the Caribbean theme song is great for engendering an “I can conquer empires!” feeling, while anything from Interstellar is fantastic for crushing your heart to dust and then reviving it towards greater emotion. Want something a little moodier but still inspiring? A track from The Dark Knight Rises would be what you’re looking for perhaps, though the Man of Steel score can capture your lungs in it’s fists and punch them towards the skies just as well. And of course, lets not forget most anything from Inception, though most especially Time, that heart-achingly beautiful triumph of the human spirit that starts like a sunrise in your veins and tears itself out as a cry from your mouth.

My most favorite tracks to dive my mind under, the tones that always bring me back to the light when things are just a little too dark and vulnerable, would be the last three songs from GladiatorElysium, Honor Him and Now We Are Free .There’s something about all three in succession that just grips me and raises me the depths of any perdition.

AC/DC, the Backstreet Boys, Eric Clapton, Beyoncé, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Crystal Fighters, M83, U2, Daft Punk, Florence + the Machine, these are some of the great artists that I find myself turning to when I need a bit of a boost to my mood, a jumpstart to my day- but when in the true dumps of things, Hans Zimmer is what I fall to so I can be shattered and remade again in better form.

Favorite tracks:

Where We’re Going- Interstellar Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
One Day- Pirates of the Caribbean: At World End
Strength and Honor- Gladiator, Music From The Motion Picture
Look To The Stars- Man Of Steel, Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
Rise- The Dark Knight Rises
Time- Inception (Music From The Motion Picture)
Elysium- Gladiator, Music From The Motion Picture
Mountains- Interstellar Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
