Happy Birthday Dad!

James Hampture Pierson III

This whole week my folks have been in town visiting from Georgia, they are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary and my dad`s birthday.He turned the big 54 this past Wednesday. 

I haven't been able to give my attention to blondunderwater, like I would like to this week.  It`s one of my goals to write every day in some form or fashion.  

Short and Sweet. HAPPY WEEKEND


America the Bewildered

Note: This entry is past its prime but wanted to still put this out there. Just my opinion.

When the World Trade towers fell I was a freshman in high school. I was sitting in my English class with Ms. Peterson, who was a young teacher all the boys drooled over. Some of my peers had gone to the library and on their way back they had heard what happened. Once they informed us of what was happening, Ms. Peterson turned on ABC. While we were watching, a plane flew into the Pentagon. Mrs. Peterson`s father was working in the Pentagon at the time. She became panicked and left the room, leaving us alone with this news.

Now ten years later I`m in a new English class, learning that Osama bin Laden was killed the night before. My emotions were mixed.  I`m glad that we live in America, even with all our faults. It feels like a chapter has been closed, leaving everyone with different opinions. I understood why people felt like we shouldn't be celebrating the death of a human. An eye for an eye or turn the other cheek? There is no doubt in my mind that if we were confronted by Osama bin Laden or his followers, they wouldn't have any doubt taking us down. On the other hand I understand why people felt like they should be celebrating. It seemed like everyone wanted to be a part of this moment in history. The times we live in are changing fast, leaving us feeling bewildered.

I love politics and the building of one's own community to help it prosper, especially with the arts. When it comes to what political party I follow, I have a hard time committing to one single party. I won't go too much into my thoughts on the state of our country right now but I will say this, even if it might be terribly corny:


You say you want a revolution
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well you know
We'd all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright [x3]

You say you got a real solution
Well you know
We'd all want to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well you know
We're all doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you is brother you'll have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright

You say you'll change the constitution
Well you know
We'd all love to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know know it's gonna be alright Alright

John Lennon sums it up pretty perfectly

Checkin off my list

I've been thinking about the goals that I have for this year and I`m clearly falling behind on them. Even if my nose is clogged with a sinus infection a second time over, for the first time in a while I feel active and a need to be present in my life. My goals somehow seemed to have been pushed aside because of the feeling of pure fatigue from my nasty cold for a whole month. Now I have no excuses for my slacking; I need to remember to take time to do the things that I love. To give myself time in the day to breathe and live the life that I am meant to have.      



A Yankee meets a Georgia Peach

24th birthday
  My special musician boyfriend is a Yankee. The kind of Yankee that bleeds American blue politics which is at times a very interesting cute mix with my libertarian/ mildly conservative ways of thinking. I`m a young woman who comes from the South. Growing up in Georgia I found it hard to be myself. Everyone I guess finds it hard to be themselves. Some seem more graceful about it early on while others "grow into themselves." Some maybe lose their way and some never find themselves.
  As a young girl (teenager) I was always determined to know who I was, what I liked, and to find more of something that seemed to fit me. Making it somewhat of a pain for me to relate to my girlfriends at the time. I had no true interest in boys. Of course I longed for a simple sweet relationship but my feelings were fleeting. At times I thought I should like someone--that was what girls did, right? But boys seemed to make my friends act nuts and at the core of it I wanted nothing to do with that.  It wasn't until later that I realized it was fine that I didn't have multiple relationships in high school. Thank you Jesus! My head was and is filled with ideas of going to California to be an actress. My boyfriend would be somewhere out there. Finally God graced me with the opportunity to go to school in Hollywood.
  I was shocked, my parents were shocked and maybe some friends were too. My parents are still in stock to this day that I made my move.  Life in Hollywood took some time to get used to. I felt as if I was in a haze that only disappeared 3 years later. Slowly, while the fog left me, I began to work in a special effects shop.  The year that I worked there was when I began to learn to move in my body as ME. But the boyfriend that I was looking for was not showing up. It seemed I had met every other Mike in Los Angeles before the right Mike walked over to me to say hello.
  He`s an imperfect blue Yankee and I`m an imperfect Georgia Peach. We defiantly have our own opinions and speak them. But we are learning all the time how to make compromises. He`s a Yankee that makes me laugh and fills me with love.

10 years in the making

Osama Bin Laden is now eliminated from the picture. Interesting to see how this will play out for America.
