the whales of august

The Whales of August is one of my favourite movies. It stars Vincent Price, Lillian Gish, Betty Davis and Ann Sothern - all in their twilight years.

It is now August 2011. The world is full of unfolding dramas - some real, and some pure drama. I have been absolutely overwhelmed as life and projects come to their crossroads - some ending, some beginning and great change is in the air.

Last year, I forgot to take August off from blogging and things got really messy. 

This year I am remembering to do it. The world will still be here when I will return however, my patience and joy will be very much renewed.

That said, one of the things I am working on finishing while I am away is the complete overhaul of love and words. I will post at some point during this month when the revamped site is released. will now have all of my projects under its banner - from Grace Independent to MyProtopia to a variety of free workshops. The Decagon will also be released through the new site, that is 10 years of my poetic work and that release is in preparation for the 2012 appearance of the City of Love. Grace Independent will also be returning to the radio in September as well.

For many of you that only know of me from one aspect of my work, you will discover that there is much more going on under the loveandwords name. Key to the overhaul is that I have finally made the decision to release everything in a format that will be accessible to everyone with any kind of internet access - from the lowest end cell phone with a simple mobile web connection to the most high powered tablet on the market. That decision has been the result of two years of testing different types of coding, access, and reviewing traffic data. The world speaks and as it moves more and more online its on a low end phone.

And given the whole debt ceiling/economy nonsense I think it behooves my entering the election process having had a bit of a prepatory rest - lots of vitamins and water and liver and all that.

So enjoy your month! Keep an eye out for the occasional announcement posting and I will see you on September 1st!

About cassandratribe

"There are few artists that can do what Cassandra Tribe does. Whether with her poetry, her videos or her blog, Cassandra examines the truths that most of us can never come close to realizing and shows it for what it is, both beautiful and frightening at the same time. She exposes our inner-most workings like the cross-section of a powerful but flawed machine, our gears and springs, nuts and bolts removed and laid out before us. She is a true artist. Her new video, Requiem for a God, is the latest example of Cassandra's willingness to tear open and examine the very things that make us human. Shooting the film entirely by herself, she also eliminates all the little excuses we come up with to keep us from ourselves and our truth. You see, even when she's not trying to be, Cassandra Tribe is a beacon of truth and humanity in this darkest of worlds." (Michael E. Quigg, The Culture Network, June 2009)
