Surviving Domestic Violence

Running In the Shadows


I need a little boost to get over the rest of the hump and this is it.  I hope ya’ll watch the video, Stevie’s performance is, for a lack of a better term, killer.

“Gold Dust Woman” was my kind of symbolic look at somebody going through a bad relationship, doing a lot of drugs, and trying to make it.  Trying to live.  Trying to get through it”  Stevie Nicks  (VH1 interview)

I’ve been there and done that and I take this song by an awesome recording artist/performer/poet as a peek into my own life, after all, I’m “somebody.”


Take it away Stevie……….

  1. Another good choice…a classic!


  2. I really liked the music, but didn’t personally care for the sound of the singing to be honest. I like the female vocals for the band Heart much more!

    The lyrics of the song, and the title you gave your post, brought to mind 3 haiku below from a 16-set haiku from last December I almost reshared yesterday a few hours before you blogged this. I had too many creative ideas on my mind yesterday, so I had to pick and choose, and the poem “Dark Horse Lone Wolf King” (which the 3 haiku are from) didn’t make the cut…

    (For reference so you’ll see the connection more easily, the meaning of “hegira” is “a journey especially when undertaken to escape from a dangerous or undesirable situation”)

    Silhouettes suggest
    “Difference’s inertia —
    Your limit’s shadows”.

    My perpetual
    Bohemian hegira,
    God’s touched like gold dust.

    Defying shadows
    is to shape-shift paradigms,
    blindly in the dark…


  3. I should amend that I know this is her singing without Fleetwood Mac. But together or solo, she’s amazing. One of my all-time faves, hands down. 🙂


  4. Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac are amazing! Timeless.


  5. Awesome, insane talent and super powerful presence!


  6. I haven’t seen this version! I love Stevie Nicks- maybe one day I will grow up & be a rock chick! Loll 😉


  7. I love a good dose of Stevie Nicks and black lace!!!


  8. You cannot go wrong, looking for strong women, when you go with Stevie Nicks.
    Thanks Teela.
