Loving My Piano Man’s Strings

Multifarious Day 9

Fight! Fight! Fight!– This week, the extremely good looking people over at the fully buttered realm have been inspired by Lucha Libre Masks. The prompt made me think of fighting; specifically, about things worth fighting for: Living and Dying as I choose seemed to be (at least for me) the best reasons of all, so here is my blooming skull mask, my Wicked Darlings:  
Through the mouth, Death birthed words that bloomed into stories of living.
And folks breathed and fought to live and die as they chose.

Loving My Piano Man’s Strings – I wish I had taken a picture of my smile, while I shot this week’s Thematic Photographic entry. It was a couple of days ago. My lover was playing, and I was spying and giggling and taking pictures of his toes on the pedals. I get extra excited around anything that has to do with my Piano Man. Today, I get to show the beauty of Parallelism by loving the strings of his instrument (I have the sense of humor of a 9-year-old boy, so yes, I'm grinning at the mental picture). Music is sexy from every angle, isn’t it?  

She Speaks in Colors– Simona Cordora from Timeless Rituals has been treating our eyes and hearts with her Message from the Goddess drawings. Below is my favorite. I love her curves. The way she just lies there, as if understanding that the world is revolving, but nothing is important enough to steal her tranquility, her lusciousness, or the glorious colors of her hair.

  1. What a cool post, Magaly!
    The Lucha Libre mask is amazing. I'm still thinking about what to draw. :)
    Piano chords have always fascinated me, too, althought it is not my fave instrument.
    And thank you for your words about my drawing! These Goddesses came to me while meditating, and they have a lot to say. :))
    Have a great week!

    1. Ah, the magic of creating while meditating... I come up with some of my best plots while in the mild trance of stretching and pretending that my limbs are not screaming in agony lol

    1. It was fun to draw, too. I'm quite proud of it, you know? I love the fact that I got to combine two three of the things I like most: words, daisies and skulls. And what can I say about the strings? It was a blast.

    1. Isn't it wonderful how things can look so lovely if we just see them from different angles? I have a friend who is terrified of skulls and cemeteries and anything that has to do with the macabre. I love both. The way our biology creates something as perfect as a bone structure, and how the skull houses the most precious part of our body. And graveyard, well, they are just creepy and fun ;-)

    1. I should do them justice and take a picture of the whole thing. I love the sight of an open piano. Okay, so I just love Pianos in general, for I always connect them to my Piano Man ;-)

  6. Why don't we get to see those toes? ;)

    1. Somehow, I knew someone would ask for pictures of the toes. Just wait a bit... in a few weeks I will have pics of the toes, the muscles of his arms while he plays, his back... (seriously, the dance of muscle and tune is a joy to witness).

  8. Your parallel shot is stunning - and I can seriously hear the smile in your writing voice. Delightful choice for this week's theme. You have such a neat way of capturing life's moments - I love your work!

    1. Thanks for those words about my "way of capturing life's moments," as a writer of fiction that means the world to me.

      You gave us a great theme; so much freedom that coming up with something was most of the of fun. And whenever I write about my love, the words just flow ;-)

  9. Yes I was looking for his toes, too! However the other muscles sound lovely. My fav lines on a man are the ones that drop from the side of his belly to his groin. Very pleasing to the eye. And I do love your mask! I knew that it was your work because of the daisy. Daisies are my fav flower because they are strong but feminine. Magaly I didn't know there was a word verification on my blog. I've gotten rid of it(I hope). Thanks, my friend.

    1. I love obliques, too. And because I'm mundanely naughty, I love legs, and nice behinds, and shoulders, and backs that have been broaden by manual labor (like playing the piano ;-) I will be showing a lot of my favorite muscle groups soon. I'm been taking pictures!

      And I've always loved daisies. You describe them well, they are indeed "strong but feminine" and they thrive almost anywhere.

      Yay on removing word verification!

    1. Every time I draw something I'm very proud of, I think of you, Gina and Shelle. I did began to play around with pencils and a bit of colors because you guys are so wonderful, and something done by people so amazing had to be great. And it is!

      Toes coming soon ;-)

    1. I'm all smiles right now. To think that my humble drawing can even bring up one of your beauties to mind. I've promised myself that I would give, um... myself one of your skulls as reword for something grand. I love them that much!

      I'm super behind, too!

    1. I just laughed until I shook the bed. You are going to be the death of my poor Piano Man. Waking him up all the time lol

  13. I love the piano shot! Piano strings/wires are so fantastic. I read that in a modern grand piano, they total 20 tons of tension. Yet they can create such delicate sounds!

    1. I just showed this fact to my Piano Man, we didn't know. How lovely! I just went to a small art fair where the sell jewelry made with old guitar strings, and they also twisted piano strings into fun looking trees. I thought it was pretty awesome, and it, too, looked delicate in its own way.

    1. I love my Piano Man's strings, too. I need to take a pic of the entire thing. There is something magical about the way the wood and the metal coexist and create such wonderful melodies.

      And my mask was so much fun to draw ;-)
