I have been writing and drawing since I could hold a pencil, and I can honestly say that sometimes it is more of a compulsion than anything.
I write quite prolifically and currently have a variety of books started in different genres including a children's book, a murder mystery, an autobiography, a teen novel, and more including an endless array of poetry spanning 34 of my nearly 40 years of life. I also have a blog that I use as a diary and that I have been told would make a good book as it stands.
My art is created in a multitude of mediums and styles including graphite, colored pencil, chalk and oil pastel, crayon, watercolor, pen and ink, as well as 3 dimensional mediums, (i.e. clay, wood, metal, etc...). I also work with photography and digital graphic arts. I had my first art show showcasing a series of masks and accompanying poems when I was 20 and had some of my work included in another show a year later. Since then I have not sought to have any of my work showcased or displayed until recently.
In general, my creative expression burbles out in interesting and often unexpected ways.

Chris Davis: I am sharing this that TammyGail wrote for her wall after a discussion we had:

"when reviewing
one should always keep humanity in mind
as there are many souls that write to release
not follow prose and count but to bleed
you haven't an idea what mindset that writer is in
and if you haven't any suggestions that are helpful
than pass it... really is it worth a bit of change
pushing a frail soul over the cliff
just something to think about.

you may bite my words if you like
but I tell the truth
its not a rank game to all
some really just write for relief" ~TG

Thank you Tammy, for formulating this... and for understanding. My heart to yours.

    Kelleigh: I second that! Miss Tammy, you are absolutely right :)

    DIS-illusioned: Despite a few spags here and there, Tammy, very well said. :)

    Nhala: Tammy is amazing. big time talent and thinker

    June 28, 2012 at 6:37PM
    Chris Davis: Oh... it's just still in the crush, fantasy stage... who knows if it will happen? But isn't that the joy and thrill of a crush? ;)
    June 30, 2012 at 8:51AM

Chris Davis: I am 'in-crush'... ((sigh)) :)

    shelley kaye: but.... what about us?


    June 28, 2012 at 11:28AM
    DIS-illusioned: Good. Now, it can lead on to an unhealthy infatuation, a disastrously awkward first encounter, and someone suing the other for stalking.
    The joyous process of love--ahhh!
    June 28, 2012 at 1:31PM
    Chris Davis: lol ... oh heck... it's been 16 years... give a gal a break! We had our first 'date' the other morning... breakfast. It's only taken 3 years+, but we sat and talked for 4hours while time got away from us. We only left when we did because he had to get ready for work. It was... lovely. ((blissful smile)) The parts you all get is the inspired writing... check out 'Breakfast at Diamond Jim's' and 'wondering'... ;) Be close to a cold shower... or at least that's what I've been told. ;)

Chris Davis: The book with my first published poem came today! I am over the moon! :D
June 4, 2012 at 7:35PM
    Melspoems: Wow!!!! That is awesom!!!
    I want an autographed copy ;-D
    June 5, 2012 at 4:39AM
    Chris Davis: lol... I wish I could afford to give everyone I know a copy... but even I had to pay for mine (though at a discounted rate). :)
    June 5, 2012 at 7:55AM
    Larissa B: congrats Chris! did you get picked up by a publisher or you self-publised?
    June 10, 2012 at 2:06PM
    Chris Davis: They contacted me, Blaze... it was a real shock. It's only one poem in an anthology but it's a start, right? I have a second one being published in the biannual magazine put out by one of the Honor Societies I belong to also. :) I am hoping to finish compiling my first poetry book, then go on the hunt for a publisher... we'll see. I am so busy right now it's hard to have time to think about it.

    Sally Carter: A truly amazing voice. This lad appeared on a UK talent show quite recently. Not sure about the choice of song for someone of his age, but if I were not looking at him I would have no idea he is so young. Thanks for this. I'm going to go and check whether he has any recordings yet.
    June 3, 2012 at 3:01AM
    Chris Davis: He does, Sally. I just happened upon him when I was on youtube; quite by accident. :)

Chris Davis: Feel foggy and groggy and sort of icky today...

I can hear the owls hooting to each other from tree to tree next door. Their mirrored calls echo through the spaces between them and it reminds me of that recent animated 3-D movie with the owls. I loved the scene where the young owl is learning to fly through the sprays of water. I used to fly in my dreams; it took years worth of occasional dreaming to get good enough to fly for a long time, it is so mentally exhausting. But now it has been years since I took flight that way, free and alive and filled with promise. Oh how I wish I could get back there again.
May 27, 2012 at 1:51PM
    Joy Graham: I envy you to be hearing owls so close to you. I love nature!
    May 27, 2012 at 4:30PM
    Chris Davis: Me too, Joy! I was working outside and found sweet little nest with 5 blue eggs speckled heavily with brown... saw the little mommy bird. Fortunately saw the nest before I finished clearing out the old bamboo it was built in. :) Now I know so they'll be safe. I took pics and hope to be able to watch the babies hatch and grow since the nest is about knee-height. We'll see.

    shelley kaye: you're feeling icky because it is too dang hot! :-P

    May 28, 2012 at 10:43AM
    Chris Davis: shelly kaye~
    I bet you're hot down there in SoCal, but up here in wet, Western WA... not so much. It was tummy trouble. :) But better now, thankfully. ~Chris

    Word Weaver: yes...true poetry...
    it speaks for itself

    my muse is back...
    May 27, 2012 at 4:30AM
    Chris Davis: I am glad WW... so weave me some words... a poem is like a tapestry of old, telling a story between the lines of thread or ink.
    May 27, 2012 at 1:44PM
    Word Weaver: a poem is what you write on a lonely bench under the pouring rain, with a lump in your throat, a pain in your heart, and tears streaming down your cheeks...
    May 27, 2012 at 4:09PM
    Chris Davis: Damn skippy, WW! I am there (except the rain part... it can be raining outside. But I often find myself inspired in the tub. :)

    Chris Davis: We're holding on to our Mel... we value you.

Chris Davis: Hello friends...
Getting better... almost recovered from the surgery and other than waking up with the stomach flu (really? I got my flu shot) I am feeling physically much better over all for the first time in many, many months.
AND I am officially getting two poems published in different publications. And then a third poetry entry into a local (County wide) contest didn't make the final cut, but one of the judges sent me a personal letter/note card to tell me how she had been moved by my poem and wanted me to know...(it's on here as 'untitled' in my portfolio in my poetry 'book'). That note means as much as being a contest winner, at least to me.

So, emotionally, it's still a theme park. 'Please keep your safety belt on and your hands inside the ride car.'

Thanks for flying C.Davis Air.....
April 29, 2012 at 10:34AM
    Larissa B: congrats Chris!
    as to the flu...did you know that the flu virus has too many varied strains and the existing flu shot we get does not cover all of them? tsk,tsk,tsk:(
    I think the best way the best way to fight off these buggers is to just improve you arsenal by taking probiotics and antioxidants.
    Feel better!;)
    April 29, 2012 at 11:41AM
    Rob Caudle: Hey, Chris, glad your feeling better, other then the flu of course. Personally, I am my hands over my head kind of theme park ride rider. congrats on getting your work published. I knew you could.

    April 29, 2012 at 12:06PM
    Chris Davis: Blaze,
    Yeah, I knew that about the flu shot, but dang, I just had surgery 2 weeks ago and a major car accident 2 months ago... the flu? Really? :( (yes, I'm whining) ;) I probably got sick because not only do everyone I know have or have had it, AND I have been not only lowered immunity b/c of being 'sick' for so long, but also being in DR offices almost every day for the last many months has raised my risk, I am sure. :) Still, I am just disgusted... really...?? (sigh)
    April 29, 2012 at 1:06PM
    Chris Davis: Rob,
    Yeah, feeling better in some ways and not others... I am not such a roller coaster lover myself, at least not the kind that go upside down.... and this ride has been upside down for too dang long!
    Thanks for the congrats on the publishing.... you had more confidence in me than I have had in my self... I think that's probably pretty safe to say, don't you? I am still in shock. School starts again on Tuesday... that always makes me nervous. I got a good grade in my last class (A), but still, I always expect it to be a mistake somehow.
    April 29, 2012 at 1:13PM
    Rob Caudle: Yes I have confidence in you and you are so right, time to turn the roller coaster upright. you not only deserved to be published but I am sure the A was no mistake either. one foot in front of the other a journey is made complete. As Jerry would say Keep On Truckin.
    April 29, 2012 at 3:44PM
    Chris Davis: No, the 'A' wasn't really a mistake (got 1000/1000 points, 100% in the whole class) ... my overall GPA is 3.9, after all. Thank you for saying I deserved to be published... I don't know about that... but I am glad for at least a bit of sunshine in the storm of life lately.
    April 29, 2012 at 5:34PM

Chris Davis: Thank you everyone for your well-wishes. It means so very much more than I can express. Still on heavy pain meds from Friday's surgery. Anyhow... going now sine falling asleep between words...
April 18, 2012 at 11:57AM
    Joy Graham: Feel better soon!
    April 18, 2012 at 3:55PM
    Jen Gentry: CHris
    My thoughts and prayers are with you as yours have been with me. Sending you hugs and warm thoughts
    April 19, 2012 at 12:29AM
    Chris Davis: Thanks, Jenny... recovering from surgery... it's already better (At least I think so from a pain standpoint.
    April 21, 2012 at 12:15AM
    Melspoems: We miss you :-(
    April 26, 2012 at 8:09AM

Chris Davis: Just found out I have to have another surgery, the 5th in 15 months, and to repair damage from the 4th. I'm feeling pretty defeated. I can only hope it will stop the pain the last several months have been defined by. It could be as soon as Friday!
April 11, 2012 at 2:48PM
    Melspoems: Will be thinking of you...and hoping that it will at last make the pain go away...hugs
    April 11, 2012 at 11:14PM
    Chris Davis: It's scary. Pushes all kinds of buttons.
    April 11, 2012 at 11:52PM

    April 12, 2012 at 10:09AM
    Joy Graham: I'll be thinking of you. Take care! Hugs :)
    April 12, 2012 at 12:04PM
    Chris Davis: THank you.... home but recovering and thus not 100%.... oh, heck, even 20%.... surgery is a bugger.
    April 13, 2012 at 8:29PM
    miss.dani: Good luck
    April 15, 2012 at 1:01AM
    Larissa B: Hey Chris, I hope you will continue to recover & yeah, surgery IS a big bugger .... unfortunately, some are inevitable!
