interviews :rose:
:bulletgreen: LadyLincoln's ladies of lit - volume xlv
{Whenever I think of Kimberly’s work, I think of a sort of fragile beauty that stays with me and continues to haunt my thoughts after each individual reading. There is something simply magical about her poetry. And, it stays tucked away within the confines of my heart, where radiant, vibrant imagery shall always shine.}

beautiful compliments :heart:
:bulletgreen: chromeantennae:
"Lady Dream(s), the Dreaming Lady. You, KJ, create poetry I can only envision in my dreams. You're such an inspiration and beyond kind, you're just that epic. I love you and please, please, please, don't ever stop writing."

:bulletgreen: shehrozeameen:
"Lady-Yume if there was a means to save raindrops just before they fell, it would be my pleasure to present them to you. You're wonderful - you're like a clear blue sky that's radiant and never has a single blemish on it. Its always a good day when you're around. And its always been something I'm proud of - reading your works, as well as being your friend."

:bulletgreen: lombregrise:
"Lady-Yume is a lovely poetess, and I'm glad to read her. Delicate, true, sensitive."

:bulletgreen: LadyLincoln:
"Kimberly’s beautifully woven “dreamy” poetry reflects from her heart and through her gorgeous deviant identity, amongst the community. Her writing is sensitive and thoughtful, and she has a creative ability to pull her readers into a world with vibrant imagery – she helps us count the stars, travel through the valley of the butterflies, and discover our euphoria."

:bulletgreen: TheBakerandWriter:
"You just have a delicate way with words and it comes out to be something otherworldly."

:bulletgreen: A-Shadow-Rose:
"Lady-Yume. She is wow. She is wow times infinity. I can't even describe how beautiful her work is. Every time I read something, it makes me feel all warm because it's just so... wow."

:bulletgreen: crooked-clockwork:
"You are truly a daily inspiration to me and are one of my absolute favorite poets. You have such a beautiful and raw soul and it comes out in the poetry that you so graciously share with the dA community. Regardless of how many times I reread your poems, many have brought fond feelings and even tears welling up inside of me again and again."

so, a little while ago ( i recently discovered ) i got tagged by the lovely d-e-l-e-t-e-d to post ten random songs, and tag ten others to do so too.
hence, i just -remarkably enough- tidied up my inbox enough not to feel totally overcrowded with stuff, i thought i put a new journal up... i know, that theory is flawed somewhere.

okay, but now for some snazzy tunes i've had in my ears recently, here's my ten :giggle:

:music: Roy Kim - Nothing Lasts Forever [link] ( i simply adore this guys voice, and the clip is gorgeous )
:music: John Park - Falling [link] ( repeat-repeat-repeat-repeat-repeat )
:music: July - In Love [link] ( instrumental lovelovelove )
:music: The Cinematic Orchestra - Hatching [link] ( the build-up in this track is simply devine )
:music: Shannon LaBrie - You Found Me [link] ( the first time i heard this, it got right under my skin... )
:music: Coldplay - Always In My Head [link] ( brilliant song from the brilliant album ghost stories )
:music: Ibadi - Morning Call [link] ( this group has hardly any bad songs - love 'm to pieces )
:music: Yoo Seung Woo - Hesitating Lips [link] ( this guy, just too cute for words... like a little hamster )
:music: Nell - The Day Before [link] ( heartbreakingly sad but beautiful )
:music: 2PM - Go Crazy! [link] ( guilty pleasure, i'm afraid. also, the clip has me in stitches every. single. time. )

okay. and now for the tagging. sorry lovey's if i tag you and you've already done one of these -
i apologize beforehand ( ;P ) ( <-- that's not helping my case, is it? )

the ocean has climbed
into the sky,

silver-tailed fishes
are imitating the moon
and starfish
are clinging to the ceiling.
