Eccentric and Bent

Come on a fantastic voyage in the backwaters of my mind.

Daily Archives: February 1, 2013


I have had this blog for a while. I mainly use the account for following other blogs. Over the past few weeks I have been trying to convince myself to write something everyday. I just didn’t know where to focus my considerable talents and skills. By being such a Renaissance woman, I was having a hard time narrowing my focus. I partake of a variety of arts and crafts, should that be my focus? Well there is a glut of craft blogs. I am a mother of seven people ranging from adults to a toddler. Should family life be my focus? Not when there are so many great blogs about families. Should I focus on health and beauty for Black women? How about cooking? I mean these are all topics that affect and interest me. I just couldn’t figure out who should be my target demographic. Then it hit me, (have you ever been mugged by your own thoughts? I have and that shit hurts), I am not an ad agency. I am not doing this to create revenue nor do I have to answer to sponsors. I can write whatever the hell I want. I am only limited by my desires, passions, and imagination.  It was like a breath of fresh air after surfacing from deep sea diving. (Not that I would actually know because the nature shows do all of the diving for me.) Once I “got” that my blog should be just like my life, I felt better. I knew that I was free to release all of my thoughts. I knew that one day I could talk about politics and the next I could talk about the joys of changing crap filled two year old underwear. I knew that my grammar and spelling did not have to be perfect. I knew that I could write in the manner that I speak and think. I knew that this was one place to indulge my megalomania and Goddess complex. I can talk about art, religion, sex, or chocolate and no one could tell me to shut up. (Not that many do IRL cause I am so gansta witit.)
Now you may be asking yourself,  “Self, what in the hell does all of this gibberish have to do with me?” Nothing. Except if you hang around I hope to engage, entertain, and enlighten you. I know I will eventually piss you off. I hope to make you laugh either with or at me. I hope to be a positive impact on the world we share. If not, oh well I tried. So sit back, buckle up, and let’s hit the road.


I am a mother, wife, sister, daughter, crafter, writer, and general crackpot. I do my best to be a good citizen, (it’s harder than it looks when you want to gut punch 85.9562% of the people you encounter). I spread love and sarcasm generously. My favorite color is blue. I love long walks at sunset. And none of this is important. It is just to illustrate I will write about whatever captures my thoughts. Most of the time that will be crafting, my family, (did I mention I am the mother of seven beautiful savages?), my dog, and the color blue. Other times it may be my views on politics or religion. No matter what I write about I hope it entertains, enlightens, or just pisses you off. In other words I hope my musings give you something you didn’t have before. So come back and visit me from time to time. Have a great day.

Sometimes things just take your breath and these paintings did it for me. The colors are vibrant and lively. And I admire an artist who is not afraid to do things in unconventional manners. Long live the rebels and outlaws because they are the ones who keep life interesting.
