T Minus 10

Baby, when you’re gone, I realize I’m in love — Bryan Adams and Mel C., When You’re Gone In case you haven’t guessed I am in the middle of the move. I am not sure when I will get my internet connection back, although it is supposed to be turned on for the 1st. We […]

Missing Pisces

Lie to me, I promise, I’ll believe — Sheryl Crow, Believe I walked without the usual pressing urgency, my hands were steady with a strength and purpose that has eluded me for a great length of time. I felt awake, not the kind of awake that you are forced into by chemicals or caffeine, but […]

Horriblescopes

Tempt not the stars young man, thou canst not play With the severity of Fate — John Ford, The Broken Heart Seems like on a daily basis I have my own secret Oracle in my inbox. With frightening regularity the trite and seemingly innocuous blurb about my day hits home with the force of a […]

Break, not broken

Nothing is so exhausting as indecision, and nothing is so futile. — Bertrand Russell, Attrib. Swinging like Poe’s Pendulum, my attitude seems to have led me down a strange yet eerily logical path.

Foot in Stirrup

The Greeks had a word for it. – ZoĆ« Akins, Play Title Your one foot is trapped, having been forced into the metal trap and as the animal wanders ever so slowly away from you in it’s own absent minded fashion, your other leg hops desperately trying to get enough purchase to propel you upon […]

Whine, Women and Song
