Kismet, or playing chess with two Queens

Most gods throw dice, but Fate plays chess, and you don’t find out til too late that he’s been playing with two queens all along. Terry Pratchett Sometimes it feels that way. Even when it’s good. But then you don’t mind it so much. Some things are “truly meant to …

I, Introvert, the less you speak

There comes a time when you become too tired anymore to try to be other than you are. When the small talk becomes deafening. When the tension cannot be drowned no matter how many times you hold it down. It may mean No more often. It may mean more time …

Hell is other people and Hope is the thing with feathers

Things are getting better, truly they are. As Winston Churchill said: “If you are going through Hell, keep going.” I did and and do. And will. Some things are better.  The change was necessary. This new change is necessary too. I would just like to stop being angry. I would …

Efface, to wear away

Time has a way of wearing down, erasing, almost rearranging the self into something like but unlike. It seems you start this journey to adulthood thinking so many thoughts of who you will be, how you will be and when. Then life happens and those dreams, many of them are …

Visible Soul of our house

I’m very tired, these last few days because of some significant changes I’m making in my life. My C, probably forever and always will be cats. Cats were my friends when I had none. Cats were my parents when my parents were not around. When I couldn’t live for me …

No one saves us but ourselves

No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. I  think that was the Buddha. To me it means We have to make the choices, we have to make the decisions on what we fix about our lives and when. I don’t want to change what …

Between Grief and High Delight

The answer is obvious and the question not fully known. The path is clear and trapped with brambles. The cup filled with comfort and regret.   It seems like one decision after another keeps having to be made. And by that I mean by me. Me, making decisions. I’ve learned …

Alphabetical Observation

I’ve done a few blogging challenges with varying degrees of success. I have always succeeded at November nablopomo, though not at any other month. I also succeeded at reverb10. I did not however, succeed at whatever reverb 11 was (it was too fractured for me, no one place to connect …

Zoetrope and finally Z

Zoetrope is one of those very cool things from times past.  It was initially called a Daedelum (or wheel of the Devil) and was invented by William Horner in 1834. It uses motion to trick your eyes. Zoetrope (or wheel of life) is the precursor to our modern motion pictures …

Yonderly Yearning

Yonderly –Doesn’t that mean over that way–way over that way? I’ve read it means mental and/or emotional distance, which sort of makes sense. But I can only find that one place, so I’m not sure that is actually a word or the definition of it. I did find this website: …

X chromosome

the sex chromosome that is present in both sexes: singly in males and doubly in females; "human females normally have two X chromosomes" I think the biological definition of gender is obsolete. I think gender is more fluid than that. I think, I believe in my heart, that if there …

Who is Wambly

Honestly my first inclination is to say W is for Who, as in Doctor. As in wobbly wobbly timey wimey stuff. As in my other major obsession next to Star Trek and music.  My favorite Doctor is still the 10th. I started with the 4th and 5th. Liked the 8th. …

Vociferously Vitriolic

Vociferous Vitriolic Vociferously Vitriolic=what current political discourse is. I have long been interested in politics. I worked on my first campaign when I was still in single digits–handing out flyers at the mall for Bill Clinton. I get unreasonably excited about the privilege of voting–so much so that our daughter …
