Nighthawks III
Looks like the Nighthawks II thread is getting a bit unwieldly for the folks on dialup. (see http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph... )

12. hiya Heidi!
I love your name also. Please don't be offended when I tell you I had an adorable puppy that I named Heidi, she was a sheltie terrier cross and the smartest doggie I ever had the pleasure of having. She was mine for about 5 years. I still miss her. That was back in the 70's.

My parents forbade me exposure to the nefarious influence of Cheech and Chong, so I naturally was forced to spend my college years in pursuit of their . . . pursuits. ;)

Slow doesn't begin to describe it from this side. Maybe if I hadn't logged out earlier, it would have been a slow thang. All in the timing.

but I also believe the server is really a lush, so it prefers beer over any soft drinks.

Depending on how bad it is; this one is a bout 6 out of 10 on the pain scale, so I'm hoping it's a short one. I've missed my bike rides the last 2 days, and that's killing me..

Started painting after I moved to Switzerland a few years ago. It was the only way I could legally make a living, and I somehow got good enough at it to make money. Weird, huh? (I count my blessings every day.) :hi:

I wonder how many people are what they started out to be ...

A transition from journalism to painting isn't that odd if you look at this way ... you see more than most people and you aren't afraid to put it out there for others to see ... be it paper or canvas ... the message is still the important thing!
... and that you are enjoing putting it out there

77. it is I who am honored by your friendship ~ Heidi

as I was starting my college days I wanted to become an attorney ... I'm sorry, now that I didn't follow that dream but I'm sure that my life is so much more peaceful than it would have been if I had fought battles for others all of my life instead of just some of the time




You deserve the applause, Heidi. Not only for your beautiful work but also for the sweet spirit that you are.

I wanna join the Heidi fan-club!

since I'm having my first cup of coffee when the Nighthawks are gathering, I think they let me in by default. ;)

My Thursday was good...a quiet day...Did a LOT of posting today...big surprise there!

Went to my usual Thursday Farmer's Mkt...did some shopping there, and had a nice chat with my gf who took that pic of me some weeks ago...

Dinner, Jim Lehrer news, and now I'm here with all of you...

Tomorrow will be busier...that's a good thing though...some days I don't get out of the house at all...

How's your day going? Friday, am I correct?

:loveya: back atcha!

This nighthawk made too many day moves. (yawning)

Currently trying to tape the vent piping on the dryer. It's comedic and frustrating...no wiggle room.

I finished another painting (will post it this weekend), which relieved a good deal of stress (I have an exhibit starting soon), played with my cat, went for a walk in the woods and hung out a little with Mr. Heidi and my 13-year-old goddaughter. I love the way the air smells toward the end of summer!

What's good whiskey? Most "hard liquor" tastes like paint solvent to me. :rofl:

129. A poem to honor tonight.
There once was a hawk named night
Whose feathers were smooth as silk
The hawk flew into the light
Turns out, was a drum full of milk

The hawk jumped out, shook itself dry,
Pointed its fist and raged at the sky
Why did you make me fall in the drum?
Because you needed some calcium.

The hawks bones grew tough and strong
It flew so high above the ground
It said, I guess that fall wasnt so wrong
But, damn, I put on a whole pound.

Thank you! Thank you very much!

159. i can't function without at least one cup o' coffee in the morning.
I'm flying to next Thursday (to RDU). NWA says they're going to continue bidness as usual during the strike (if it happens), but as a union member I really hate to cross picket lines.

unfortunately, i live in one of NWA's hub cities, and they control about 80% of air traffic out of MSP, and the only airline with a non-stop to RDU. otherwise, i have to change planes at least once, and a 2.5 hour trip becomes a 5 hour trip. "Give me convenience or give me death!" :crazy:

165. Hi Heidi
What's our eyeworm for the day?

(I see everyone use "earworm" around here, so I figured "eyeworm" would be good for art)

179. Wow. That's gorgeous!
In a way, it reminds me of Ego Schiele or Modigliani, but mostly Schiele:

192. Thanks for turning me on to Schiele
I can see the similarity:



Modigliani also. Guayasamin is an indigenist painter from Ecuador, where my parents grew up. He passed away a few years back. He has a very cool museum in Ecuador. This is what he looked like (I prefer it to a boring old photograph):

168. Hey there, Heidi!
How are you tonight? I'm feeling a bit melancholy, due to circumstances that are beyond my control...

And I can't discuss it either...not sure why I'm bringing it up!

I'm going to get off here shortly and go to bed...I have an early appt. for a much needed haircut!

Hope your day is wonderful!

:pals: :loveya:

187. It's OK, Peggy.
I'm sorry to hear you're a bit blue, and I don't need to know the details in order to send you love and good vibes.

Take good care of _you_, my friend. :loveya: :hug:

You're favorite artist needs to stop playing around at DU this morning and get her butt over to the easel. ;)

175. Much, much better
I think I hit the plateau yesterday; it's gone down alot, and I can walk w/o wailing like a banshee :)

Any requests? I've got the mountain of CD's in some semblance of order now..

190. What kind of tunes do you like to play?
I'm pretty eclectic. Classical guitar is my favorite, but I also like other classical, rock, jazz, blues, and rap.

191. Everything
On my show I play everything from Edith Piaf to Hank Williams to Motorhead, often in the same set!

I used to be a working musician for years; I play guitar, bass, and dulcimer, though I'm recording a CD now that's kind of a whacked-out version of folk music..

193. In that case.....
Ace of Spades, followed by Roly Poly, followed by Red Clay, followed by the classical guitar version of Cavatina (John Williams recording, please).

B-)

I play classical guitar and some Latin percussion.

162. im here...
putting off bed so it feels like i have some 'me' time between work shifts...

its weird, i work in a music store and in my free time i plink around on a guitar or whatnot... its pathetic really. only reason it wears me down is school season is starting up and everyone's 11 year old needs a trumpet or a clarinet. crabby parents and long lines, fun stuff this time of year.

166. It's not fun working in a music store?
I remember when my mom and dad bought me my clarinet. I bet if you'd been the sales guy, you could have talked them into a flute out of sympathy for me. ;)

169. its fun, but
this time of year is worse than xmas. i cant tell you how many times ive been yelled at by parents because they didnt think a saxaphone was 'that expensive'. i dont control the prices, i just explain the products.

172. I know it. If any of those parents had ever listened
to a fifth-grade practicing the chromatic scale on a sax, they wouldn't even consider that instrument. I know my family was extremely grateful when my brother gave up sax. Talk about an expensive alternative to a duck-call. :rofl:

180. indeed.
they say i spent all that money for THIS? or at least their happy that it can be returned via one of our plans, but its odd, their happier when they come in to return it than when they take it home.

i love the rest of the year, its either slack or theirs a line out the door, and you can predict the times of the year that will be the worst, anything else you can grab a book and sit and read, practice or just jam with your coworkers... whatever. its a good gig for a student.
