The Wake Up Alarm Clock that rings inside you daily from 6-8 AM

Here's a bio post from zine, Musea.



Your body has a wake up clock that rings from 6-8 AM every morning.



While exploring sleep, I found this body alarm clock, that evolution has set up for us. We are biologically set up to wake up between 6-8 AM due to the circadian cycle of cortisol.

Breaking Music News for Zine Musea

Dear Readers,

Yesterday, Tuesday, I finished recording my 14th and last song for my new cd (10 with vocals, and 4 instrumentals). The last song was my BIG song for the album - big meaning a song that starts out slow and builds to a big ending - God Bless The Child, the song co written by Billie Holiday, with a nice 60's version by Blood Sweat and Tears.
Now on to mix, get the cover ready, etc. etc. Stay tuned!

My new How-To Painting Book: How to paint ghosts, clouds that have dissipated, and thin air.

Wick - my shortest quatro so far

Wick (my shortest quatro so far)

What is a QUATRO. It’s a new type of very very short poetry that usually compares two things, in a haiku – way, packing a lot of meaning in a very small amount of words. There is usually a very real comparison, and behind it a 2nd deeper meaning. I see many readers seem to like these – great! Pass your favorites around if you want – Tom Hendricks

He filled his house ....

He filled his house with water pitchers (not another poem – yes another poem)
-------------------
He filled his house with water pitchers
in hutches in every wall.
Lighting struck and started a fire
that engulfed every floor.

But as the shelves began to collapse
the pitchers would tip their spouts.
And the water pouring forth
would put the fires out.

Sayings of Editor Art – summer rerun

Rhode Island, the closet state; because, there is no ‘room’!

That ‘apple of mother’s eye’ is spoiled rotten!

Headline: ‘Blues singer wins lottery but looses livelihood’.

On my life: Could be a little better, could be a lot worse.
