8 yearsago today

Something different and personal for you all today, if you don’t want to read it as it’s not book related then that’s cool and likewise, if you choose to unfollow my blog then that’s cool too.

December 2nd, 2009, 8 years ago today. The day my dad succumbed to cancer and passed away.

At times it really doesn’t feel like 8 years have passed since I lost my father. Over trivial matters, time can often seem to go by so slowly but for the important events in your life that leave both memories and scars years go by in the blink of an eye.

8 years is a long time, 2009, a bad year, a year in which I struggled with life, a year which left me with scars, a year in which I got fucked with, a year which broke me and a year which taught me that if…

Beautiful… I didn’t guess properly this time… DARN! But beautiful…

Chaotic Shapes


Finished up the drawing about an hour ago. I Always clean the image before spraying it. When doing that I check the paper for pencil shavings from the colors and fill in white areas that are easily noticeable.

Whenever a piece is done, I look at it and think it’s never done. Something can always be added or messed with.

I have to stop myself or I would work on one single piece my whole life, hahahaha.

You never know when you’re really done, I guess you’re done when your guts say. “Okay, I think we’re done here now.” hahahaha.

Throughout the process of drawing this, there were endless guesses. Like always, the guesses ranged from, the image I was thinking, things I never thought to be in the image and many more ideas. It’s always enjoyable and interesting when people look at my art.

Sometimes people see things that…

Der goldener Drahe


Adelso Bausdorf

Dynamische Kraft, Stärke, Einweihung

Feuerspeiend, funkenschlagend, die Kraft auf unserem Rücken tragend, mächtige neue Wege wagend— wir gebären die neue Kraft, welche im Kosmos die Erde erschafft.
Weiche nicht aus deines Tempels Tür, nimm den Platz ein, der dir gebührt, deshalb wirst du von uns berührt. Wir führen dich durch die verworrenen Seiten, mit unsrer dynamischen Kraft wir dich begleiten. Nimm den Kampf auf für deine Kraft, erneuere deinen Lebenssaft!

goldener drache by adelso bausdorf Inspiration of ancient mythology, awakening in our century!

Was man über Drachen weiß

Der Name Drache stammt von lat. draco = Schlange, der Scharfblickende. Zu früheren Zeiten war der Drachen— glaube in Europa weit verbreitet. So glaubte man, daß sich die vitalen Lebenskräfte der Erde erneuerten, wenn ein Drache geboren wurde. Die Drachenmythen der Kelten, Germanen und Griechen wurden allerdings nach dem Sieg des Christentums nur noch verschlüsselt und verzerrt überliefert.

So cool….

This week I’m doing another #MusicMonday post where I share three versions of the one song instead of my usual post type. It’s interesting to see the interpretations and the differences between the versions. The song is Sound of Silence.

First up is Gregorian.

And here is the original from Simon & Garfunkel.

And finally, Passenger. This is live cover.

And just for fun, here’s TROLLS 🙂

Rainbow Advent Calendar

Looking forward

Nic Starr

As a child (many, many moons ago LOL) I loved the excitement of the lead up Christmas, probably just as much as the day itself. And part of the fun was the Advent Calendar – a fabulous chocolate surprise behind each of those little cardboard windows.

Well, this Advent Calendar is even better!

Between 1st and 24th December, authors of GLBT+ fiction will surprising you with a selection of festive stories. Even if you don’t celebrate the holiday season, you’ll have a wonderful little story to look forward to each day. Find stories from your favourite writers and discover some new ones along the way. A small gift from us to you for all your support in 2017.

As the authors and stories are revealed during the event, you can find the details here. There’s also a Facebook group where you can get notification and interact along the way.
