I had a continuous dream the week of February 14,2011. It entailed century old secrets from William Wrigley Jr. founder of the infamous gum corporation.
The dreams lasted for three nights, each one in hearty detail of how Mr.Wrigley titled his empire of chewing gum names.
The first night featured his treasure "Juicy Fruit", he informed me that he spent every October in the french quarter and fell head over heels for "Juicy Fruit", she worked in a tea house with the others....Juicy Fruit is what her late night patrons called her,the den was tucked away in a basement around 732 Toulouse .next to the French Opera House.
William and Juicy Fruit had a deep love for one another, yet she had refused to live in Chicago, so they were never able to spend more than a few weeks together.She always told him "I was born here, I'll die here" speaking of the French Quarter, supposedly the farthest she had ever ventured was City Park at the end of the dueling oaks. Juicy Fruit also was in charge at the Tea-House which a very generous lover had given her when he passed away in 1892. Her sister Abbie Reed was furious and they never spoke again.Abbie was told by this lover on Basin street she would inherit the property, yet the paperwork claimed Juicy Fruit as the inheritor of such said property at 732.
Though he was spiritually forced to move on, the "Double-mint Twins" (or the DM Twins)caught his fancy next, those two (Siamese twins) could party for days on end, their hair was always an emerald green which they claimed was from their secret color enhancements found in moss only available in the Louisiana Swamps.The two were always sipping on mint julep's which gave their breath a minty essence, plus they were always in minty colored attire and giggled through any conversation.
Big Red was an infatuation for Mr.Wrigley they would chat for hours and have one Pimms Cup after another. She had claimed to help him with the key elements for his everlasting flavor ingredient in the GUM recipe. She always wore Red and White, to match the interior of the great elliptical auditorium in the French Opera House next door, which she was lucky, one of her admirers "Humphrey" would take Big Red to every opening night and purchase her a new blood red velvet gown adorned with pearls.
Big Red was born a hermaphrodite,her parents were European gypsy's and felt like she was thee golden child. They had come to New Orleans when Big Red was 14, they were both taken by yellow fever in 1905.Big Red was never the same after that.

Bhakti Baby (Lady Krishna)
Plus some other pulchritudinous retrievals that were in order for this next chapter.
By: Kook Teflon
From my recollection the time Miss O had felt she was ready to vacate had began in the summer of 2010. Female Front had fulfilled her desires and she had been depicted in the highest honor thus far on her journey. A cherished soul had taken time to make a drawing of Miss Oblivious as Hecate’ (goddess of all witches & protector of outcasts), which was soon inked onto her shoulders as to “watch her back * heart*path”, Miss O stated she was tired and needed solitude, she had done all she could on this course. I was fine with that, the zine had completed issue 40 on this tour, the obstacle was “who would/could/should take her place? These are big bloomers to fill.
Along the trail Kook n’ Grace entered the story while Miss O was in New Orleans in October.( Next step?) When would the flux take place? In my experience it is not wise to plan ahead with these types of transitions.
Teflon filled the air and the oracle set in place Kook Teflon was ready to be …to be what had been prior yet never before,
a mature episode of chaos, ruffling feathers, truth, lavender and grace.
Unexpected! Wednesday February 23rd, while in SF after ingesting molded enhancements, Miss O sat in the midst of a horn, upright bass, duo gender vocals and a goddess of thunder on drums, in a space off of Howard with the accompaniment of a cherished chum, Miss O realized it will never get better than this for her…through Hecate’ I felt a thousand tingles as she left, guided by the “Queen of the Night” herself and Kook jumped right in! Kook cannot believe what a chimera she is about to live and be a part of!
Kook couldn’t attend Mardi Gras this year, as luck would have it a date with Lady Krishna was the next best thing. They’re first date on the morning of Fat Tuesday sipping hand picked perk (espresso), and strolling around.
The following Tuesday would be their next rendezvous, the agenda to do portraits of one another. Kook had a bad case of the flu 6 days prior and felt disembodied, ears plugged sinus a mess.
Lady Krishna suggested that she & Kook meditate prior to their captures in art form. Immediately after the holy ash was gently placed on Kooks third eye her sinus’s cleared and 30 minutes of sitting face to face, east - west Kook was rejuvenated and ready to conquer her path with all the wonderful clarity.
Thank you Bhaki Baby…..
