My mom suggested “drummers”, so today’s search key is drums.
The first time I went to this type of drum circle was at the same place this photo was taken: the Land Trust in Atlanta, GA. I got taken there by a couple of my friends and they spent the whole time arguing very politely. It was kind of a surreal experience, flipping gears back and forth between this very primal sort of experience and then to a very moden type of argument–not just the way they argued, but the things they were talking about too.
At any rate, it will probably be a long, long time before I forget the experience. It was a blast, as I tend to find most primal things to be, and I want very much to go back at some point.
My favorite part was the fact that we’d gone with some other friends who’d brought drums/shakers, so I had an instrument in my hands all night long. Sometimes I followed the melody-beat, the lighter of the two parts of the music, but other times I dipped down and followed the low, thrumming baseline of the rhythm. It was so much like having sex that it left me with the question: do musicians in bands/orchestras feel the same way? That feeling like you’re part of creating something that is base but that is also beautiful… just the way sex should be.
Which is of course where the story lies.
This was actually on the very first page of the results, a something I took for a good sign :D Continue reading

This week’s keyword was supplied by my roommate. She also suggested orangatang and 4chan, but I kept on until I got a keyword that I knew would produce a variety of results. Continue reading
I gave one of my new beta-partners the option this time to choose the inspiration search keyword for this week, and she chose quill. Continue reading
Today’s inspiration post is random! I did not find any of these pictures with one search string, but rather through looking through people’s galleries and stuff whilst trying to find things to post on my Tumblr. Continue reading
This week my prompt for inspiration photos comes from S.L. Armstrong: purple! I love purple, so I figured, why not? There were a lot of the expected pictures: sunsets, flowers. But a few unexpected ones as well. I actually found a lot, lot, lot, so you get thirteen photos this week instead of seven! Continue reading
This week’s keyword is thanks to Penny K. Moss. She suggested arches, and I figured I’d get a better turnout from the singular, so here we go: arch, as seen on Flickr. Continue reading
Jared said at one point that he would do anything to keep Cy happy. It wasn’t hard, normally; she was pretty low-maintenance and it was easy to be a good boyfriend. But every so often she’d come up with some random-ass request and he’d end up naked in her bed with his best friend while she sat in a chair off to the side and watched.
I really enjoyed writing the post last week with the NatGeo photos; it was fun to sit and come up with what-ifs for some really awesome photos. I want to do that again, I thought!
So this week, I’m using photos from flickr. I searched for “vanishing point” and these were the inspirations I found: Continue reading
