i rang in the new year with a smile from ear to ear,
and shed myself of fright by the christmas lights.

the cold air and snow reflect the hope i know is there.
glaring white- almost taunting us because she KNOWS how much we need her.

i hope for us all the be able to tap into that light this year,
and to trip the fear off it’s feet. we must.
as individuals and as a team.

fight the good fight, like there has never been another.
reborn into the future – freak out and enjoy the madness of this life.
put on your helmet,
whip out the wand and break open this opportunity titled:

i look forward to getting my channels straight
to show you what i’ve made to commune with you.

    Congratulations to you Melissa and your team!
    I am looking forward to hearing and seeing more about how OOOM does at Sundance.
    I saw an inspiring interview with Robert Redford on how hopeful he is that we are entering a new era of inspiration, and art.
    It is fitting that your film would be presented at Sundance this year.
    By the way I enjoyed very much your performance and the preview of OOOM at Lion D’or on Nov.1,2008.

    Hi Melissa!

    Me and my sister are fans of your work! We are from Spain, specifically from Valencia.

    Such a long time without hearing from you! When are you going to delight us with a new album! Auf der Maur was and still is incredible!

    sorry about my spelling but I’m learning!

    Hope you’re great!

    I’m so glad you have a blog! I can’t wait until your film comes out! I keep a blog called called Lady Lavona’s Cabinet of Curiosities. I write about things related to Nature, Myth and Magic….I think you’ll love it!

    p.s. you might also visit another like-minded lady named Madeline von Foerster. Her current body of work WALDKAMMER (Forest Cabinet), rocks my world! It’s series of paintings and illustrations each accompanied by a very insightful and sensitive narrative about Man’s destructive relationship with Mother Nature, particularly our current deforestation crisis.

  13. Hello yesterday pretty sure was my seventh visit to your site about Pattaya Beach. My number one holiday was the one I made in 2006.I consider your page to be one of the top fifteen on the subject. We’ll be checking it again every Tuesday and next time we’re on vacation i’ll sleep at Pattaya Beach and then spend the rest of my time in Jomtien.

  14. The majority organisations need a higher college diploma or perhaps the equal. Training is offered in a variety of settings, which often may include higher educational institutions, vocational educational institutions, neighborhood colleges, geriatric facilities, and organisations. These courses normally last six to eight weeks at that time students may take an examination provided by the Mississippi Department of Well being to turn into a Certified Nurses Assistant (CNA).
