Bluebutterfliesandme Blog Picks

There are so many blogs I enjoy. As you may know I ran out of picture storage on bluebutterfliesandme

so I will use this one to honor some of the blogs I read and talk about. This rather new visitor to my blog wrote eloquently of his imaginings of his readers, he inspired me to write this blog picks post. So he is first.


A super hip, educated and traveled New Yorker, (although he may be from elsewhere) he paints vivid images with his telling of his observations, memories and imaginings.

The Playground, a life reconstructed

Cara B writes about her life as a young woman in Manhattan and shares of her friend Katy who passed a couple years ago. Cara is also a great writer, she should be published. Every post is gripping. It is the darker side of Sex and the City. I hope you don’t mind that description Cara? Read it.

theadventuresoftransman, Just another middle aged guy raising a family…except I gave birth to mine

Transman is a great writer and usually makes me laugh. He is totally original and genuine. Funny! Read it.

Thoughts from a Cafe

TD is an artist, and writes and shares from the heart. He was my blog crush but he keeps talking about this Julie. lol

He taught me that you can have music on your blog.


odie a hairless cat and odie mama have an amazing eye for photographic layouts, they make some spectacular choices. odie mama challenged her readers to tell a story about one of her posted images, so sprang our collaborative writing project here.

and my Writing In Progress blog research and story background, history and inspiration

Moving on………..

Andrea in Wonderland

“I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then”

She’s crazy in a good way. A couple of my favorite post she tells about her obsession with the French. I really liked Andrea when the first post she had the guts to call Game of Thrones, Game of Yawns, that’s right she was brave.

That is just a hand full there are SO MANY so don’t think I didn’t pick you… there is Kira, Lily,Renard, Karen, Fae…… on and on.





My Tee Shirt Store

Under Or Over

I look up at the television and see Prince in black and white. “What is this?” I ask myself. I grab the remote to check. “Under the Cherry Moon,” I guess I missed this from 1986. lol No loss, I mean I love me some Prince, 1999, Little Red Corvet, Controversy and Purple Rain, but this is …….. laughable.

It looks like a rich film students self indulgent fantasy. Something I might do if I were rich in 1986.

Even Kristen Scott Thomas can’t pull this one off.

Hollywood Forever

Hollywood Forever Cemetery was a nice place to visit though you don’t want to live there. (lol) Bad joke.

I always enjoyed going there, except for my best friends funeral, but it couldn’t have been a nicer or more beautiful and appropriate setting. He loved film, the Business and Hollywood, like me, we shared that. We shared that,  our wacky out there ideas regarding existence, and vampires. Anyway this post isn’t about that relationship, that is for another time. Had I gotten to work here, like I wanted to do, I might still be in Los Angeles but…it was not meant to be.

This is one of the mausoleums. I don’t know why but I think they are beautiful. I am a energy sensitive person and I never felt creeped out her but peaceful.

Douglas Fairbanks Memorial

The Johnny Ramone Memorial Statue

Hollywood Forever has lots of fun and interesting events. In the summer they show films. In the movie Valentines Day they  Shirley MacLain and Hector Elizondo attended a screening.

They have a celebration on the Latino holiday Día de los Muertos, Day of the Dead.

If you live in the Greater Los Angeles Area you most likely know about it. If you are visiting go.
