Friday Fun Trifecta #1

If you remember a while back, we did a segment here on SDMcKinley.com called Friday Fun Links and now it has evolved into Friday Fun Trifecta, where I will feature one thing of each – music, book and visual arts. Welcome to Friday Fun Trifecta #1.

Music:

Possession by Sarah McLachlan – Genre: Pop Folk

[Verse 1]
Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time

The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied

[Chorus]
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I
Wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

[Verse 2]
Through this world I stumble
So many times betrayed
Trying to find an honest word
To find the truth enslaved

Oh you speak to me in riddles
And you speak to me in rhymes
My body aches to breathe your breath
Your words keep me alive

[Chorus]
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I
Wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

[Verse 3]
Into this night I wander
It’s morning that I dread
Another day of knowing of
The path I fear to tread

Oh into the sea of waking dreams
I follow without pride
It’s nothing stands between us here
And I won’t be denied

[Chorus]
And I would be the one
To hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I
Wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes dear

I hold you down
Kiss you so hard
I’ll take your breath away
And after I
Wipe away the tears
Just close your eyes

Book:

The Glass Bead Game by Herman Hesse [ Image Source: GoodReads ]

Are any of you familiar with this book? It is quite peculiar, actually. I have had this particular edition ( I have not read it ) of The Glass Bead Game leave me and then arrive again, in which this time I rolled with the punches and kept it.

“What you call passion is not a spiritual force, but friction between the soul and the outside world. Where passion dominates, that does not signify the presence of greater desire and ambition, but rather the misdirection of these qualities toward and isolated and false goal, with a consequent tension and sultriness in the atmosphere. Those who direct the maximum force of their desires toward the center, toward true being, toward perfection, seem quieter than the passionate souls because the flame of their fervor cannot always be seen. In argument, for example, they will not shout or wave their arms. But, I assure you, they are nevertheless, burning with subdued fires.”

― Hermann Hesse, The Glass Bead Game [ Source: GoodReads ]
I felt so strongly about this quote, I made an image. Feel free to steal it.

Visual:

Early this week, I posted a review on The Bosch by Neal Asher, in which the blurb describes the author having inspiration by a Hieronymus Bosch:

Biblioklept has many other features from this artist to enjoy. And, I almost forgot, but yesterday SDMcKinley.com broke the record for most views in a day @ 49 views. 😃

Guys, until next time – may you find all the happiness that your life can fit in it’s happy spot – S.D. McKinley

By S.D. McKinley

S.D. McKinley lives in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. He was born in the first half of the 1980's and grew up in Wisconsin as a young boy, then moved to Georgia when he turned exactly twelve years old. During teenage years, he raced dirt track go karts and played guitar. He discovered his current love for all kinds of art after his mid-life crisis at 25 years old. S.D. McKinley began writing books in 2017.

I do love Bosch! His art is absolutely bonkers, and nightmare-inducing, but man, that imagination of his is almost unparalleled!

Yay! Comments work! 😀

It’s amazing, some of the stuff he did in so long ago. I’m just starting to learn about it, really. The book Gods blessed me with the small copy of The Complete Works, that I’m thumbing through. 😊
