Brett Manning.

B R E T T   M A N N I N G.

Her work reflects her emotions and state of mind. 
"It's very personal and full of meaning to me. I'm a quiet person, so what I have difficulties expressing in words, I express with my art."
These are some of her original pieces.

You see the resemblance?
She is

i never loved nobody fully.

You lift my feet off the ground.
You spin me around.
You make me crazier.
Feels like im fallin' and I
Am lost in your eyes.

i never loved nobody fully.

Suppose I never met you.
 Suppose I never ever saw you.
Suppose we never ever called. 

Always one foot on the ground

I got lost In the sounds.

I hear in my mind, All these voices.
 I hear in my mind All these words.
And it breaks my heart.

Please, Please, Please let me get what I want

See, the luck I've had
Can make a good man
Turn bad.

So please please please let me, let me, let me
Let me get what I want
this time

Lord knows, it would be the first time.


Are you looking for love? Mother asked Perla. But Perla was just looking for scissors.

Are featured in 500 (days of summer)

which was one "freaky" night, going out to see that movie was
more or so because - just the evening prior i had told a boy that  I did not want to be his girlfriend.
And well, he just couldn't make sense of it, which was entirely, uncool. He's rotting and wasted now.
We went over his dad's. I was smitten then. Need I say more?
WELL, ANYWHO. The Following day, we went out to see this film. I had been anticipating it's release since,what? June? March.
Bit Ironic. That I'd gone out and seen it with Him.


This film explained to him, EVERTHING. He failed to comprehend and it was amazing. i.f.i.l.that next thrusday. to this one.

I’m getting lost in your curls
I’m drawing pictures on your skin
So soft it twirls
I like your looks when you get mean
I know I shouldn’t say so but when you
Claw me like a cat, I’m beaming

I like the way you squeeze my hand
Pulling me into another dream
A lucid dream

I’m getting lost in your curls
I’m getting crushed out on the things
that only I should see

Not for boys, they’re just for me
Hurry to talk, from far away
I can see you, you curl your fists and you pull your hair
When we’re alone, I wanna say
Let’s just stay in, no one’s here in our apartment babe

(Put on the dress that I like)
It makes me so crazy, though I can’t say why Keep on your stockings for a while
Some kind of magic in the way you’re lying there
(this is EXACTLY what happened.

I’m getting lost in your curls
I’m getting rushed back on a whim
Our breaths get wind

Back to the time when we were GREEN
I know we have changed
But I still grin cause I can’t wait to see you
Back to the time I touched your hair
When I was so scared to look that MEAN
Some kind of magic in the way you’re lying there.

I repeat.

kitties in the neighborhood don't seem to like me, probably can smell cat allergy all over my fingers. WELL MY BODY DOESN''T LIKE YOU TOO.

Laura Thompson, Manager of the Centergie Team Houston installed in me an
irreversible passion, a desire, a drive, a devotion that later nourished my
whole being, my sensibilty; my reasoning. I fell under a mental eclipse.
Her dedication as a passionate swimming instructor for the Braeswood communitymost inevitably changed me. She introduced to me a wide range ofappreciation
and respect for truly honest, solicitious people, illustrating how important
it was to believe in people; the potential to their magnitude, the product to
that radiation and it's potential to triumphantly reciprocate.
She installed in me a wisdom, shared among women, a confidence, that is so
graciously earned and shared through trust and confidentiality. She taught me
what it meant to believe in myself, this, a factor i would not have managed to
succeed in if it hadn't been for her exceedingly difficult, vigorous training
and delight. It was then that a love for this sport aspired in me too.
Those multiple 2nd and 1st place wins were nothing in comparison to her
significance in my life. She's highlighted what it means to value onesself.
How, you are what you create; that it's never too late.
By establishing this disclipline I've cultivated a reasoning that allows me to
nurture myself. Gaining this self knowledge, i've metamorphosed a brighter,
more goal minded and socially aware self. Laura continues to amaze me.I've grown very fond of the way she takes control of situations, the way
private dilemnas fail to linger her conscience; her heavy thoughts take a
back seat. She makes health her priority and through her I learned that the
most important relationship is the one you carry with yourself.


The media's highlighted and popularized unhealthy, constraining diets, linking
them to self-worth, causing psychiatric damage while stressing detrimental
consequences. This constant battle with ourselves self criticism, the
puzzlement, the frenzies, has got to stop. Orthorexia is a disease where the
purity of foods is rendered an obsession; no longer striving just to be thin.
It is not necessarily an eating disorder it's a form of disorganized, disrupted
and disorderd eating and it's on the rise. Women who consider processed foods
as poison in their bodies and feel the upmost urgent despair to rid of it.
Holding the potential of leading to binge eating, possibly. It is a disturbing
new eating pattern and it's on the rise. Young feminines fail to recognize the
depth of this topic, we don't realize the impression the media seems to feed
us, and how much we feed on it. Adapting it's standards, almost subconsciously,
adopting them as our own; we relish the demand; we make it essential. This is
taking healthy eating to an extreme; A rapid momentum, swifting with haste.
It also possible that many may have picked it up as a result of their environment;
their parents and because of the way their parents act around food.
I want women to realize that there is a difference between caring for your body
and caring about it.There is an urgency in this insufficiency, for women to nurture their spirit and
appreciate themselves for what they are because it
will not only affect the body, but the self overall: your perspective, your
conscientious, your abilty to function is weakened, extracts vitality; hollow
emotions; attenuates you and your quality of life. I had this disease and was
completely oblivious to it's tension on my physique, my reasoning, and my
spiritual embodiment. I yearn for the day dignity refrains from modesty in
order to excel through linking ones value through decadence or lack of it and
support a healthier relationship with consumption whether it be entirely
miniscule or excessive.

"No...of course i'm not embarassed by you" COLLEGE APP ESSAY


Joining the swim team was probably the most brilliant idea I've ever had, its

impact in my life; immense. That "varisty swim team" magnificently ostentatious
title became my most celebrated experience thus far. That discipline, the
vigorous workouts, that intense and exceedingly difficult training because of
my inability to swim; I'd signed up for the swim team. An hour and half
practice starting at 6 am. I increased to 3,000 yards. Swim meets installed in
me, such a thrill, a thrill so reluctantly intense it would leisurely evolve
into fear, but Swimming became my passion, my life. Having 5 different AP
classes to entice myself with, swimming became my relief; my love; my first
love a substitute; a substitute to the pressure, hassle, nervous tension and
tautness. Enacting without a passion is effortlessly inadequate just as an
action without a motive is rendered useless. Swimming allowed me to grow,
gain self knowledge, cultivated more comfortable in my skin, my spirit expanded
enciting that passion. Looking back at 2009, joining the swim team changed my
life. "Our lives are distinguished by opportunities. Even the ones we miss,"
now this one was my majorette of major inadvertencies, but now me without my
swimming history, is like Lemonade without sugar; an essential ingredient. I'd
made my way into february, dropping 26 seconds on my 100 Freestyle.Jealousy was
then introduced. I was offered a place in the District meet, a girl on the swim
team later ruined that for me. Insensible about this fact until the summer, It
wasn't until summer league, where I began beating her every time at every
event. Every last one of them. Those three 2nd place wins that qualified me for
District were over shadowed by the three 3rd place wins, eleven 2nd place wins
and my very own 1stplace win, as a part of the Centergie Team Houston.

I want your everything as long as it's free



I like imagination -- and the way I think things could be, had been, or should be -- better than reality.-KL

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources. -AE
We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them."

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing.

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe." 

 "A human being is a part of a whole, called by us _universe_, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest... a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

"Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts."

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death." 

People like us, who believe in physics, know that the distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion." 

Listen = Silent A telescope = To see place
The eyes = They see
The Detectives = Detect Thieves
The Hospital Ambulance = A Cab, I Hustle to Help Man


If you want respect for your past,
it means that you have a problem with 
your present and even more with your future.

The imagination can transform all sorts of

personal insanity into elements of self-invention,

The remainder belongs in my journal and not on my public blog.

Silver Coins.

Today will be a good day, today I am to practice driving, paint, sew, watch films, study & see my lovely friend. I will be happy, I will I will I will. I will embrace all experiences, because it is all relative and negativity is only a matter of perspective. There, I feel slightly better. I have just introduced you to the "I will be a peach as opposed to a wilted lettuce" mantra.

We have bigger houses but smaller families;
more conveniences, but less time.

We have more degrees, but less sense;
more knowledge, but less awareness;
more medicines but less healthiness.

We've been all the way to the moon and back,
but we have trouble crossing the street to greet the new neighbours.

We have built more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever,
but we have less communication.

We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.

These are times of fast foods but slow digestion.

Tall men but short characters;
steep profits but shallow relationships.

It is a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in our rooms.

Listening to: Silver Coins Angus and Julia Stone

So tasteful

Questions (Title: the Convergence of Twain)

Analyze how the poetic devices convey the speaker's attitude toward the sinking ship.

"To hardy the loss of the titanic was no frustrating  result of combined human vanity  and human fragility before tremendous natural forces. Instead, it was destiny, the realization of some grandiose divinely conceieved cosmic drama. The precise syntax, almost biblical in its simplicity, lends an air of dignity and grandeur to the poem. the reader is never distracted by superfluous diction. Images burn through, undiluted.

The trim, regular meter contributes to this effect as well. The stanzas do not ramble or stand beside each other in disharmony. They are pillars, clean, uniform and imposing. Their sequential numbering, in roman numerals, recalls Biblical verse, or some other passage of exceeding dignity."
