selfportraits: rainbowarrior photos & CocoRosie song


A few weeks ago I was at Ben's fam's house for his/elya's birthday party, and after the festivities died down I happened to go in the garage for something and saw RAINBOWS from the glass in the garage windows -- so I took a million photos. I cannot resist rainbows -- they are still magic to me. *love sparkle glitter beauty* and also, queer pride yes! :D I need to make myself some rainbow jewelry.

The song doesn't really have to do with the photos, artistically, but it just seemed to fit so I used the lyrics as captions. ;-)



I love people who genderfuck. :D Refusing to be confined to the dress/behaviors that culture assigns to your sex is incredibly attractive to me.



of all the white horses...
In these times of evil spirits
Of material thugs and mischief
Fear Saint Noni's wisdom
And his love for rainbow spirits
Jealous of their faithful heart-bond
And their dancing and their laughing
Made at last a league against them
To molest them and destroy them
Saint Noni wise and heart-strong
Often said to Rainbowarrior
"O my brother do not leave me!
Lest the evil spirits harm you!"



Rainbowarrior of two spirits
Rainbowarrior of two spirits

Gentle hand and lion-hearted
Gentle hand and lion-hearted

He laughed and then he answered
He laughed and then he answered

Like a child he softly whispered
Like a child he softly whispered

We are rainbowarriors
We are rainbowarriors

Evil come not near
Evil come not near

Rainbow love awaits us
Rainbow love awaits us

With hearts of love and tears
With hearts of love and tears

He's dead our sweetest mother / Loving father and our teacher
He's dead our sweetest mother / Loving father and our teacher

He's gone from us forever / He has moved a little nearer
He's gone from us forever / He has moved a little nearer

To the master of all laughter
To the master of all laughter

To the master of all song
To the master of all song

O my brother, O my brother
O my brother, O my brother

Crystal brother of two spirits
Crystal brother of two spirits

Then we gathered in a circle
Then we gathered in a circle

Stood round the rainbow fire
Stood round the rainbow fire

Burning embers, hearts united
Burning embers, hearts united

We remembered mystical beauty
We remembered mystical beauty

If you look hard you can find a
If you look hard you can find a

Rainbow trail it's deep inside you
Rainbow trail it's deep inside you

Fear not you're a rainbowarrior
Fear not you're a rainbowarrior

Golden light on everything gleaming
Golden light on everything gleaming

aww thank you! they're my favorite too -- they have a meaning to me beyond any of the other photos I've taken. I want to do another set but I'm a little hesitant to because I love these so much. Color has a lot of meaning to me, and rainbows especially...

You are so amazingly beautiful - your spirit shines out from inside you, and if you ask me, you were simply born to be painted with rainbows!
