Tag Archive: Mantra for a Muse

and, just in case that wasn’t music enough for you… try this one on…

Greetings all… how has your week been…? Just as you had hoped it would be, I hope!

I have some RedmundPro news to share today.
First, our dear Red has released a sixth  seventh book (count ’em – 6 7!), available in limited quantity signed copies for a while, The latest from Red is Mantra’s Book of Shadows.  That Mantra is a busy little Muse – if you remember, it wasn’t that long ago that together they published Mantra for a Muse.
Red’s also out recruiting new authors to publish, so if you know anyone who has a gem or germ of a book, be sure to refer them to RedmundPro to learn the process for submitting work for review.
And last on my RP agenda is the fact that I am hosting a Live Chat over at the forum at RP on Tuesday, March 5. I’ll be there for at least an hour, starting at 2pm, CST / 3pm EST. I hope you will stop on by on Tuesday – and have some questions for me about fractals, fractal art, being an artist or even being an author. I’ll be there… waiting for YOU!!!

On another front, we are now only 19 days until the 2013 Vernal Equinox. Yaaaaay!!!

and now…. for some fractals… pulled a few out of the really dusty archives and a couple new ones too…

Hi all…

I have been totally out of it for this entire past week, as in health and heat demons finally got the best of me, and all I could do was lie here and take it!!! Those demons managed to drain me of all my intestinal fortitude, and then some!! Today is the first day I’m daring to venture out in a week, and even now, I’m not sure how my strength and stamina will hold out. Just have to wait and see, I guess… this is the first I’ve peeked out from under the covers for DAYS! Let’s see how it goes…

a couple tunes for your listening pleasure…

(hope there’s none of this in my route today)…


and we’re off….






Well, that should do it for today…  Neural Zone and Picture Window were both created using a fractal generator called Fractal Science Kit. It is a little more difficult for me, because the interface works a lot better if you get the math (which I don’t), but I can still get a few things. Last week, Perhaps and Nirvana were also from Fractal Science Kit, which you can download for a free trial period (30 days, I think).. The creator, Ross Hilbert, also shows many of his images on his DA site. His images are a LOT nicer than mine!!!
So I hope you have enjoyed today’s offerings. I MUST say, I’m so glad the DNC and RNC are both over. What IS with that Clint Eastwood, anyway?!?!? I think he was still in character for his latest flick.

Now that summer’s officially over, time to pack away those white shoes (NOT) and put up the storm windows. Maybe we can hold off for a while, though. This is my perfect weather, 70-75 F during the day, 55-60 F overnight!! I could live with this FOREVER!!!

Almost forgot, Red over at M3 (with one of my favorite weekly features: Friday Follies) has finally got her new poetry book out. That’s her second book in as many months! “Taming the Terrible Two’s” is just what it sounds like and “Mantra for a Muse” is gobsmack full of Red’s and Mantra’s poetic works. They are truly amazing poetry. I just got the e-book and hope to review the whole thing for you, but I warn you, I do love to savor poetry, take my time, so I can absorb all its lovely facets, hidden and not. So don’t hold your breath for the review. Better yet, why don’t you run over and get yourself a copy of one or both!

One last thing, I hope you will all forgive me for not only not getting around to your blogs, this past week, but I haven’t even responded to ANY comments from last week or newer. I am taking it slow, so I don’t wear myself out before the book is done. Wouldn’t that be awful?!?!? I finally get a book deal and I kick the bucket before I can send it off to the publisher!!! That is NOT going to happen!!!

I may just spend another day or so hiding out under the covers, to make sure all those terrible health and heat demons are truly gone!!!

Happy weekend, all. And don’t forget to tell someone you love them, at least by giving them a good hard hug.

love and hugs and peace to y’all…


PLEASE FORGIVE THE APPARENT TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES… I will make sure this published in FULL today!!!


Oh my goodness, I can’t believe how this week has flown right by me… it seems like only yesterday (actually, it was) that I was thinking about my friday-fractal-follies-festival post, wondering if I had enough fractals ready and straining my brain for some good music with which to set the mood… lots of time, I said to myself, it’s early in the week and there’s plenty of time, so I went after a little catchup around the blogosphere, got hardly anywhere, it seems, because I am still soooo far behind… hmmm… is that the longest sentence ever, or what!?!?!?

So, here we are, and, though I do have today’s fractals ready, I must hunt for some more “related” pings. In the meantime, here are a couple things to occupy your attention span.

First, many of you have already seen, Red‘s trailer vid to promo her upcoming book “Mantra for a Muse” (book available 09/01/2012) and it is DYNOMITE!!! Even if you’ve seen the trailer, it’s worth listening to Cat again – she has an angelic voice!!! (Not to mention her lyrical and compositional skills!)

And, I’d like to thank Morgan of The First Gates for guiding me to this next vid/tune. I have been thinking of Knopfler and Dire Straits almost every day for a couple weeks now, so this is exactly what I needed for today’s post… (spoiler – Eric Clapton is backing up Mark K by playing rhythm guitar!!!)

all righty… and now, let’s see what the fractal bucket has produced for us today…


Mantra Entwined




Of course, special credit to LizzieC for her beautiful renderings of Mantra, which I have added to a couple more fractals here.

Finally, I just want to give an update on my upcoming book (working title: My Fractal Dreams – a reference to fractals and, in part, to a Philip K Dick story about androids and dreams). It is moving along nicely, I am excited beyond description, that something from my bucket list can be crossed off. I have way more than enough images – now I have to start cutting some – that will be the hardest part!!! Stay tuned!!!

So, thanks, as always, for stopping by for some fractal love to get your weekend going. I can only hope you experience even just a touch of the pure joy it is for me to create these fractal based images.

Metta love,
