“Adversity is the first path to truth.”

~Byron

I think I’m about to hit the library again and pick up some Romantics. It’s time to revisit them and other Victorian writing. I disliked many of the Victorians in graduate school, which was rather heretical. I spent my time either with Chaucer or Shakespeare or in later ages with Italo Calvino, Kurt Vonnegut, Flannery O’connor etc etc. I guess I’m searching for an answer to an unanswerable situation and I usually find it in literature.

And meditation, that’s helping.

I will write more on the morrow. I have lots of ideas, but needed to take a few days off. I’ve also been unloading rather openly on my LiveJournal, which I can friendslock. Some things just can’t go fully public.

Tomorrow I start taking out my camera and attempting to post a picture every day? every other day? of F’ville. Our home, the place we love more everyday (even my California husband).

Who by the way is home from his sojourn in the farthest reaches of Republican land (Bakersfield). We are so glad to have him home. I find I appreciate him anew, his kindness, gentleness his actual understanding of and patience with me. He never hesitates to support me and/or call me on my stuff. I am a better person because of him and I’m grateful he thinks he is because of me.

I really enjoyed nablopomo and I have a number of folks I’ll still be reading. I appreciate all the visitors.

And thank you for the emails I appreciate being missed.
