There is this Mexican film...I forget the name, but its about this poor man who always carries around this doll of a little boy. Now, the reason he does this, is because he so desperately wants a child....but he is mute, and a little naive...maybe even a little behind emotionally and mentailly.

Anyways, he treats this doll like a son--hugs it, kisses it, "signs" stories to it. So one day, he finds about 2K. What does he do first? He first leaves the doll, and then goes to an orphanage, waiving the money--he's so happy, because he thinks he can FINALLY have a little boy or girl....

Obviously, the woman in charge, though touched by his love and enthusiam tells him that its not enough to maintain a child--and that she is very sorry, but she can't let him adopt one. He goes through out the story, trying to get more and more money so that he can, but he in facts ends up losing most of it. I don't remember how. But, now he doesn't even have his doll...so he goes looking for it at the dump where he left it, and he finds it...broken and in a sad state. But ever the devoted father, he tries to mend him, and it ends there.

That movie touched me. I mean...here this man wanted nothing more then to have a son, or a daughter. He wanted to be a father SO SO much...and it didn't seem fair that he had all this unconditional love to give and no one but a porcelain doll on the receiving in...a doll that could NEVER return his love....

Heh although, as humans we would LIKE to think that our stuff loves us back? LIke that fairy tale of the velvet rabbit...I myself can't toss my stuffed animals or treat them badly, cause I think they'll become really sad and angry....

*sigh* no, I am not on drugs....I'm just odd

Today has so far been ok....my tummy feels better.

I got inspiration for an old story idea I've had lying around, so that was pretty hard core.

As if RIGHT now I'm still working on that drawing, and I am just hurrying! I want to have it inked today, and start coloring tomorrow, so working hard.

Also, working on my normal job so, thats also keeping me busy. I had a dream that halloween caused people to grow feathers and fly away to the Island of confusion, where the only way out was to wrestle a crocodile.....mentally.....

I blame the food!

So I started sketching the Sandman and the Sandwoman.

My plan is for each one to represent both the bad aspects of Halloween and the good, and the good and bad of dreams! Its odd *Pthb*

I got the Sandman idea from SB Musing , though I had been planning on doing a sandman theme for a year now.

Theres a guy, who I think, since he came out sort of darkish, will be...the trickery or Halloween, the weird, dark dreams, the nightmares, the dreams that are a waste of sub conciousness.

The girl ended up somewhat fairy ish, so she'll be the candy, the treats, all the sweet and beautiful dreams.

Both are joined, but seperated...oh...so seperated, but they need each other to survive....yay!


....Oh, and ⭐Princette♥Pengthulu rocks! Being a penguin and all....

Yes, I've written about this before but still...

WHY parents? Why have children? No I'm serious why? To make your life better? You love the idea of having children?

Honest to God, I got nothing.

Cause...I have SEEN the way parents suffer for their children. I have seen how much I've made my parents suffer...now I am a good girl...but those teenage years and some of my decisions have not been..a hit.

Now I see them going through it with my siblings, I see my cousin with her children, and strangers with their children and I....don't know.

It just seems to me that...the happy times aren't worth the uncertainties, the heartbreak, the tears, the self doubt.

Ok, in 10 years I MIGHT want a baby...MIGHT but right now, I don't see myself even CONSIDERING that possibility....in the present and in the future...

I'll probably write in my blog again tonight before beddy bye....the topic of discussion?

My Halloween picture, featuring the Sandman and a Sandwoman....I blame this on Sarah, cause her story caused me to have an awesome dream *Bigsmile* Blame it on her!

This blog was inspired by The Literary Penguin . His blog is awesome. Check it out.

Anyways...there have been...a lot of moments in my life.

You know, those moments that change your view on life, or moments in which you think you connect with someone--or moments that are, for some reason or another forever burned into you mind.


The "moment" which first popped to mind for me was.....

When I watched "The Nutcracker Prince" when I was a small child.

I FELL IN LOVE WITH THAT MOVIE.

I still have that movie, and I see it frequently.

I remember being...captivated by the story. It was sweet, beautiful, full of bravery and nonesense--and near the end, a little tragedy. The colors of that movie, the voices, the characters where trapped in my heart. Unfortunately, the movie was rented from the library, and we had to return it.

Even as I grew up, I searched for that movie again, and I didn't find it until my wonderful Russian Prince gave it to me ((I love him!)). Since then I have a Nutcracker Collection--6 dolls 2 musical boxes that play songs from the ballet((one of them from my love)) and 2 books, AND the movie...obssessed much? Yea.

Something about that fairy tale always...captivated me...who cares about the Frog Prince? FYI. in the original, she never kisses the damn thing--she throws it against the wall! And then it turns into a prince, and for some reason, he STILL wants to marry the girl! WEIRDO! And don't even get me started on "The Little Mermaid"! ....the original one...

Anyways, I guess I like the Nutcracker tale because...its both sweet and tragic...."real" and fantasy....its just...perfect. It gives me comfort....I like it.

Ok, this isn't as deep as the penguins but...I never claimed it would be anyways *Bigsmile*

This is somewhat related to the blog below.


Anyways....what does my name mean? Aria Svetlana Markovitch? Well I shall tell you.

Aria means "Beautiful solo". I chose this name because I consider all of my writings and drawings to be beautiful pieces--even if they do have SOME flaws. They have their own...melody, their own music.

Svetlana means "Shining Star" in Russian. I got it from a letter, written by a WWII Russian soldier to his lover, Svetlana. I want to shine...I want my writings to inspire, to make people think. Thats my dream. Same with my drawings, but my writings come first.

Markovitch. This last name was borrowed from a short story by Anton Chekov--the uncle in the story, was really great. So worried about what society would think of his good for nothing nephew...and he wants to punish him...but he can't find it in his heart to do so. This name sort of represents...a compromise I suppose...in what I want and what I might not get.

Yea...so anyways, I'm still sleepy. The sandman hasn't been that kind to me lately dammit....weird nightmares and such. Honestly....you make a remark about his apperance and he goes all crazy on you...jeez...

Ok, this was a long time coming.

A few days ago, I bought a HUGE MASSIVE book, containing all of Mr. Carrolls Work. Awesome stuff I might say. I started reading "Sylvie and Bruno" which, although quiet different then "Alice in Wonderland" Its just as charming and enchanting. The man was a genius overall really--talented in math(ew) and many other areas.

But I love how he played with words with images. I mean really...the man was a master in that sense.

I read the preface he wrote for both novels as well. He seemed to be such a daydreamer too--which, come on...thats awesome.

Ok...so....there are a lot of myths surrounding him. First, the one that is talked about the most---

WHAT WAS HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH ALICE LIDDEL?

Alice LIddel was the inspiration for Alice in Wonderland...but according to all the letters he sent to her, and her parents, and vice versa, he just liked hanging out with her. Nothing inappropriate. WHY they split no one knows. Maybe something DID happen...after all, he did tear out a lot of pages from his diary.

Yea, ok, he had an obsession with little girls, and women in general. Cause he did have adult friends...he was very... possessive and jealous of them, according to some of the letters recently exposed.

There is two parts of this story

A) He could have been a sexual deviant, but never acted towards his fantasies. OR

B) he was totally innocent, and still a child at heart.

I think its a mix of the two...if that can happen.

Point is...we will never REALLY know the truth....cause he's dead.

Lewis Carroll was a name he fashioned for himself, and, he created his own legend.

Sort of like how Aria Svetlana Markovitch...is a legend in training. Cause its not my name....no...Aria is something...so much more....

But thats a story for a different time....
