Antonin Artaud: Saint of Surrealism

September 5th, 2012 by Voxx

Saint Artaud by Voxx Voltair © 2012Today marks the 116th Birthday of the great Poet, Antonin Artaud. He is considered one of the first, and greatest Surrealist Poets. Artaud was also the Father of modern avant-garde cinema, as well as one of the first screen stars in cinematic history.

Artaud’s mesmerizing beauty haunts several early films, including the early masterpiece by Carl Theodor Dreyer, “The Passion of Joan of Arc” (1928), and many others.

If you have never heard of Artaud, I urge you to discover his works for yourself. For your benefit, I have included one of his shorter poems below. Please take the time to learn more about this most gifted of artists, one of the greatest of all time. And please remember to say a prayer for his soul, which was tortured during his time on earth. May he rest in divine peace for eternity.

Please also visit this Antonin Artaud Link for more information on Artaud, and take the time to read more of his poetry, and other works of mastery. I will soon post his Astrological Chart for those interested.

Jardin Noir
By Antonin Artaud

Spin the eddies of the sky inside these black petals.

Shadows have covered the earth that bears us.

Open a pathway to the plough amongst your stars.

Enlighten us, escort us with your host,

Silver legions, on the mortal course

Which we strive towards at the core of night.

Blessings & Light,
~Voxx~

Happy Birthday, Grandmother

September 29th, 2010 by Voxx

Today, I wish to celebrate the birthday of my late Grandmother Nell. She was born in the early 1900′s, in a small town in Tennessee. Nell was the middle child of seven children, including two brothers and four sisters.

She was a real beauty when she was young, looking like a combination of Lana Turner and Mae West. The story goes that she was a sharp-shooter, and an excellent horseback rider — a veritable Eris if ever there was one. On the Venusian side of things, she was also a young vixen, who wound up marrying her English Professor, who happened to be a Poet as well as a Shakespearean scholar.

Nell was the most perfect Astrological specimen of a female Libra. Smart and analytical, she ran her own grocery store, acting as expert accountant and shopkeeper. She was also very beautiful, fun-loving and domestically talented.  Nell was an incredible cook, and an expert seamstress, as well as a loving and wise Grandmother to me and my sisters. The list of her talents goes on and on.

Whenever I see a beautiful starlet from the golden era of film, I always think of my lovely grandmother. She was tall and elegant, possessing the typical flair of ultra-Librans for looking glamorous, even while cooking up a pot of green beans in an iron skillet. I loved her so much, and still think of her often.

Nell was a gifted clairvoyant, with deep spiritual beliefs and could recite any line of the Bible by memory, at the drop of a hat. She was the one who first taught me about Psychic Protection, and the concept of Karma — and I can assure you that anyone who ever did her wrong, wound up paying a hefty price. Thinking back, there was absolutely nothing Nell could not do. Her garden was a thing of beauty, always full of gorgeous ripening tomatoes, and other luscious fruits and vegetables.

Grandmother Nell, as a firm believer in life after death, I know that if heaven exists, you certainly must be there, livening the place up!  In the meantime, thank you for making my life possible, and also for those dozens of beautiful handmade quilts that keep me and the rest of the family so warm at night. You are forever loved, and deeply missed. ~V~

In This, My Time of Passing: Poem for Lorraine

January 31st, 2010 by Voxx


In this, my time of passing
I leave you, not in tears
But, with a heart of joy, amassing
Memories of years

How dear was life when living
How full the days that passed
God’s gift was in the giving
and my blesséd role was cast

He chose you all to be my friends
and loving family
Some times were sweet,
Some saddened ends
Still, all were gifts to me

Devoted mother, loving wife
A sister, friend and guide
A woman faced with challenge, rife
With faith, did i abide

I treasured every single day
I loved you all, each one
I worked at living in God’s way
The way great souls have done

I gave my all, best as i could
I aided those in need
And in my heart, i understood
the value of each deed

I loved without condition
I loved beyond all bound
Because it was my mission
to share the joy I’d found

I lived life fully, every day
God granted every prayer
Believe me, when i say
it was a privilege to share

My days of living life with you
Who hear my words right now
Oh, yes this angel in your view
Will keep a holy vow

To guide and keep you
in your ways
For now I live above
And as you live thru all your days
I’ll bless you with my love

Yes, there is rest and peace
Dear ones
In heaven, my new home
And after pain, there is release
After life’s work is done

Until that day, so far away
Remember I was here
Please keep me in your memory
As i will keep yours, dear

My earthly life now closes,
With all trials faced and won
Now, I live in yellow roses
and wide blue skies filled with sun

So everytime you look above
And see the sun shine thru
Please know I’m sending all my love
And shining down on you

Lorraine Jones: A Goddess of Norwood

January 26th, 2010 by Voxx

Lorraine-Power-Jones-GoddessAs I write this post, a dearly loved, lifelong friend is transforming herself into an angel. I feel this is the final physical goal of a well-lived life. My friend, Lorraine Powers Jones was one of my mother’s best friends. This post is for her, and I hope she will hear it read to her by her only son, Gary. I hope there are still a few grains of sand left in the hourglass …

Lorraine has always been what I considered to be the ideal woman. Elegant, tasteful, intelligent, friendly, and seriously fierce. She is a dutiful, loving mother, and a successful businesswoman, getting to the top of the ladder on her own terms.

My memories of her include so many wonderful times. My sister and I would play with her children Joni and Gary, who are still dear friends. I remember playing games on her front porch from dawn until dusk. One afternoon I was playing on the porch and banged my head on the iron-railing — it was Lorraine who came out and went with me and my mother to go to the doctor.

Everyone in the neighborhood would go to the McClain’s house to ride go-carts, and watch the illegal fireworks. I remember the endless “Girls’ Nights”, when Lorraine and all the other women of the neighborhood would come over and play Bridge all night, filling our house with laughter.

Lorraine had another great friend who lived one house over to the East — Shirley Brooks. The two of them were born under the Astrological sign of Virgo; and they used to giggle about secrets no one else knew. They were inseparable, and they always came over together through the front door, looking for my mother and her book of Dreams. It was a morning ritual, Lorraine, Shirley and my mother in the kitchen eating coffee cake and drinking coffee, laughing and gossiping about the details of their lives.

I remember Lorraine as the tall, graceful lady of the neighborhood. I always thought she should have been a model. I suppose she really is a model in her own way, and always has been. Lorraine certainly proved she’s a model of grace under pressure. She was always there for my mother, until her dying day; taking my mother who was terminally ill with cancer, to the hospital for emergencies in the middle of the night — bringing my mother food and medicine, and most of all, her loving and helpful way. Lorraine is a true original Southern Belle, in all its most positive meanings.

Oh, Lorraine … as I write these words, you are still here with us. Remember how much you are loved and cherished. And how all of us are at your side right now, at least in spirit. You are the final original Matriarch of our hometown neighborhood of Norwood. We are honored to have been a part of your life, and we’ve been so lucky to know you.

To me, you will always be the Last Goddess of Norwood. The beautiful, graceful Virgo with the strength to carve out a life for yourself, without leaving anyone behind. I am grateful as well that I was able to speak with you on Christmas, and that my father got to tell you how much he loves you.

I suppose, all I can do now is wait to hear that you’ve gotten your wings, and that you are free from any and all pain. I wish your transformation was easier, but I know the result will be one beautiful angel, that’s for sure. Please remember how much you are, and will always be loved, and how your leaving us will leave a void that will never be filled.

And please don’t be afraid … my mother Claire and Shirley are waiting for you, looking forward to seeing their best friend again. How can there ever be anything but laughter in heaven when you three get together? I love you Lorraine, thanks for sharing your gift of life with all of us. We’re sure going to miss you!

I will light a candle for you, and say prayers for your peaceful passage to the heavenly realm. Please watch over us, as you always have. And be glad that all of the neighborhood children have found each other again. God bless you, Lorraine.

Love,
Voxx, and the Family xoxo

The O’Neal Factor: Deaths of Two Legends

June 27th, 2009 by Voxx

Michael Jackson and Tatum O'Neal

I’ve been wondering if anyone else has found it strange that Ryan O’Neal (and his daughter, Tatum) both have major connections to the passing of two legends — within hours of each other!  Of course, I’m speaking of Farrah Fawcett (Ryan’s life partner of 32 years), and Tatum O’Neal (who was immortalized in Jackson’s song, “She’s Out of My Life”). I don’t mean to suggest they played any negative roles in either instance, I just found it intriguing.  It’s also interesting to note that Farrah was in the position of being Tatum’s step-mother, of sorts — after all, Ryan and Farrah never legally married. But, still — how strange it must be for all of them now.

As an Astrologer, I’ve been delving into the Astrological factors of the deaths of both Michael Jackson, and Farrah Fawcett, and have already uncovered some very unusual aspects and similarities in their respective Astrology Charts. I’ll be posting this info up in the next couple of days.  Until then, keep Michael and Farrah in your prayers — as well as the O’Neals, who are most certainly going through an unprecedented mourning period.

Blessings,

Voxx
