Lucy in the Sky

Pic from ~ ~

Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds... this is one of the Kougar’s fave songs and she heard it last night as bumper music on Coast-to-Coastam, nighttime radio. It’s never become old and sounded as fresh and dreamy-psychedelic as the first time this Big Cat girl heard it.
As many songs were at that time, this is poetry of the mind, poetry of the senses. It was mind-bending, mind-expanding... poetic lyrics blended with music that opened up the gates to new realms of awareness and being.
Back then, it was a time of so much potential, so much struggle to become more than what we’d been taught to be... only recently has the Kougaress learned how much this movement was sabotaged... she knew it occurred... however, not at the level that REALLY occurred... but that’s a whole other story... a long one.
No, this musing is about the magic of the music and the lyrics... about feeling the potential of other worlds, about creating new worlds via the mind. Moi used ‘tangerine skies’, a phrase in Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds, as one inspiration for
TANGERINE CARNAL DREAMS, moi’s stallion shapeshifter sci fi, erotic romance... just like many romance authors use music and lyrics as their inspiration, as a door that opens their imagination to the story they want to tell.
It will be *interesting* if any synchronicity occurs around this particular song. Raised Kougaress brow... and a long swish of her tail.
Big Kittens... question: Would you take a vaccine with the number 666 as an identifier? Yep, believe it, or not, that is the number on the Swine Flu vaccine designated for the US and Britain.

Authoress news and mews ~

CHAPTER SIX ~ Nothing to Deserve Death

“No,” she desperately whispered. To her knowledge he’d done nothing to deserve death.
“No, is that your final answer?” he rasped.
With utter confidence it wasn’t, he pinched her nipples, sending a tidal wave of pleasure through her. The sharp pain of carnal need also stormed her flesh, the ferocious ache to be satisfied that was never satisfied. Unless she did it herself.
“You don’t want to do this.” Keziah tried a human method of appealing to him.
“Are you refusing to cooperate with an officer?”

Just for the cowboy lovin’ big cats ~ a sneaky peekie X-snippet from BRANDED BY THE TEXANS...

Dash wrung the last bit of pleasure out of his flight to fuckin’ heaven, as he and his brothers often called it. Actually, him and Dono, and not so much Dillon. It’d been long as a donkey’s stubborn butt sittin’ on the ground, since he’d enjoyed a woman’s favors.
Now he had a wife. And what a wife. Not only was Kylie drop-dead gorgeous to his way of thinking, she was a taming kind of woman, just like he’d dreamed about again and again during his idle time. A fire-hurling enchanted princess, who’d singe a man’s balls as much as look at him, if he displeased her.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues....

Part 206 ~

Sylva smiled inside in a way she couldn’t remember doing for a long time. “I’m too relaxed for plundering,” she bantered. “Ranson?” she asked, figuring that was the only way he would tell her anything right now. Giving her a serious look, his eyes dark as a shot of whiskey, he seated himself on a chair that had obviously been designed for his tall masculine frame. Did husbands here watch their wives bathe? “Ranson wants to meet at sundown. Claims he has some information I need to know about you.” Sylva jerked inside, staggered. “What does that mean?” She frowned.

Zeke surely didn’t want to upset his bride. Still, he figured it’d be worse if he failed to confide in his Sylva. “Don’t rightly know what it means. Could be just Ranson’s way of ambushing me, or our honeymoon. Could be he does have somethin’. His family is connected to some high-playin’ mucky-mucks who’d like nothin’ better than to run our world. Truth is,” Zeke leaned back, making his posture less intense, “Ranson’s family is renowned for getting the inside scoop and helpin’ to prevent tyrannical rule. Course, they’ve been careful. Spying it out, then feeding it to another source.”

Hi Suzanne, thanks so much for being here today.
Humphrey Bogart and James Dean, so cool. I would never have thought of blending those two.
Maltese Falcon and Rebel Without a Cause, two of my old fave movies.
I'm naughtily curious. Since both of them are smoking, does your hero smoke?
