The Culinary Alphabet …..Series 3… the letter B…

I missed A but here’s B

Retired? No one told me!

Welcome to series 3 of the Culinary Alphabet…letter B…

Nothing is as it seems here…this new series is the brainchild of Chel Owens who writes at A wife, My Verse, and Every Little Thing…my followers are so good to me they think up all sorts of permutations of the Alphabet…not sure if they want me to call it quits or what they will come up with next…Chel like Pete, however, will be called on to make her contribution every two weeks…they don’t get off scot-free…haha

So what’s in store? In this series the A, B, C, etc will be the middle letter, for example, Brawn, Cabbage, and Yucca… how easy that will be who knows I am sure  some of the letters of the alphabet could cause the grey matter to rebel or implode…haha

I Am A Dreamer

I love “we meet on the notes of a violin”


I am a dreamer-
Floating in the celestial
Between your world and mine:
Only to return to poetry

We meet on the notes of a violin
In the sepia of memory
Where the ink washes out my tears;

In the fragility
Of my breath
Your fragrant laughter rakes my navel
Fleeting in the drifting daylight

Catching my eye, a golden shimmering rhythm spinning with a dream

We create syllables
In the hues of blossoms
Trace of the nib
On virgin white
The color of my verse
In the rush of our touch .

Asian voices in the tarot community

If you’re interested in the Tarot, you should check out these great Tarot artists. I’ll be honest, I did not know that some of these artists were of Asian heritage, I just loved their work!

Morning Calm Oracle by Seo Kelleher

When I was growing up in the tarot world, the only Asian I knew of in this field was Robert Wang. Times have changed some, and I’m pleased to share with you many who are contributing incredible work to the tarot community.

In no particular order, here’s who I’ve been fangirling hard over as of late:

Sunday Sonnet

I just opened up the book & found this poem. Never heard of this poet before today. (Of course, I am more into women poets than men poets, what can I say). But this is a cool poem. Frank Bidart, I’ll have to remember that name.


Bidart, Frank. “Self-Portrait, 1969”. The Making of a Sonnet: A Norton Anthology. Edited by Edward Hirsch & Eavan Boland. New York: W.W. Norton & Company, 2008. poem found on page 263.

Nguyễn Khánh Duy | Crossing the border (6)

Brilliant poetry.


By Nguyễn Khánh Duy, translation by Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm


Crossing the border

(Upon the monetary value of human life)



ten fingers lit up in devilish flames

the lights of homage

the cleansing of bloody blades in holy water

the cross on its side on guard for the escape,

I was peeing on the Berlin wall

I was shitting on the Great Wall of China

I was looking for a Bangkok prostitute

I was worshipping a mannequin.


My wife claimed I will find myself on the side

I will find what I seek other than the dotted blue flames

and the quietness of crossing the sea borders at night,

a person just died dear

a person was just raped

the blood and spermed still a mess

upon the monetary value of human life.

“For Each of Us Who Ever Felt that God Created Us Better than Any Other Human Being, has Stood on the Threshold of where Adolf Eichmann Once Stood”

Today’s sermon. Take it to heart, people.

The Inglorius Padre Steve's World

Friends of Padre Steve’s World,

I had t post this because I don’t want it to be unsaid as I transition off of this site. For my faithful subscribers I will post the new site info as it becomes available. The way I feel about WordPress now is like Joe Pesci playing “Leo Getz” in the “Lethal Weapon” films: “they always fuck you in the drive through.” But I digress.

Due to the vast amount of race hatred and violence occurring in the United States I watched two films: “Operation Finale” about the brave Israeli Mossad agents who traveled to Argentina, captured and escaped with a primary architect of the Holocaust, Adolf Eichmann in 1960, not long after I was born. I then watched “The Eichmann Show” which was about how the trial of Eichmann was filmed and televised around the world bringing to life for people who either…
