Once Smitten..

Good afternoon,

Getting ready to post new updates before I commence last round of shooting for 2016. Yesterday I visited Starbucks to write promo for upcoming video tentatively entitled Birthday Surprise (pics above.) Pen flew across page as images from brain flowed onto paper. Resulting passage genuinely puzzled me:

Bright fuchsia bow unwraps delicious dream,
Intoxicatingly sweet decadence
Topped with thick layers of vanilla cream..

Swirling images, creamy confection embrace sleeping businessman. Transported to pink satin sea he navigates amidst lustrous ripples, silken female legs, boisterous great white sharks.. sharks?!! Jerked awake as gigantic jawline encompasses head businessman lurches to consciousness in familiar surroundings. Vanilla bedroom sheets look staid and ordinary, nothing like wild adventure he had been experiencing. Does dream portend coming excitement? He hopes so. Later that night girlfriend calls on phone. “I’ve got a birthday surprise for you.” she purrs. “Can’t wait til you unwrap the present..”

Crowd was descending on Starbucks so I drained coffee, placed folio in purse, decided to reexamine words later. This morning I did so. Dessert imagery seemed somehow seductive (at least to me) but how had sharks swum into the scene?? Then I remembered a noteworthy album cover from the 1980s:

“Twice Shy” released by heavy metal heroes Great White in 1989

Submerged in my subconscious that image has evidently been screaming for release since 1989. Funny, I had remembered leggy ladies posing on fuchsia satin but red looks equally amazing. Think I will forever revisit heady heavy metal years of yore. Recall seeing long ago MySpace.com post from Kristal Summers in which she said the same thing.

Obviously I need to revise text for Birthday Surprise so today I will be doing that along with packing for shoots, continuing updates:

Thanks to everyone who has posted comments this week – I should have time to answer them this evening.  Hope all of you are having a great Tuesday!
