Veronica Corso's Blog (18)

Tomorrow, I will Start Reading Proust.

Like many others, I have been living in a state of constant vigilance since early November of last year.

The world I knew and trusted has been turned on its head and shaken out sideways. Keeping a…

New Painting & Thanks, Tr ig

Paintings

I've been working for about a year on three paintings. I only paint when I'm in the mood, which is why it has taken so long.

The first one is "Medusa"  -- inspired by a friend's facebook photo and a photo of an octopus that I saw in a magazine.

I like taking perfectly ordinary people and making them bizarre with oil paint.…

Ephemera

This morning there was a message in my mailbox from Rita. I don't hear from her often, so when I do, it's safe to believe something important is going on. Talk about being sandbagged. Her message said that James had taken his own life. James Mark Emmerling, the Eminent…

Poems Lost & Found

I've been away for a while. The sad news of Jem's death brought me back and I think I'm working on a little project that suits this venue far more than at WP. This is a repost of yesterday's blog at WP--to start out with. The rest will be exclusively available at Our Salon.

I spent most of this evening cleaning up my work area. It is where I write and paint…

Strained Ribs and Motivation

Well I managed to skrink my ribs at the Box last Monday. “Skrinking the ribs” being the laymans term for a mild intercostal strain. You must be wondering how I could have possibly done this:

A misguided push…

Free for All Friday: The Friday Night Dance Party

I've been away for a while. Painting and working out mostly, not doing much writing. I found that I miss the feedback, the encouragement and even the occasional excitement of a dust-up. I miss writing for writing's sake, for the joy of it. So I've set a goal to blog M-F, each day having a different constraint (except for Friday, of course) and see where it takes me.…
