flax-golden tales: perpetual teatime

perpetual teatime My grandmother is a bit on the eccentric side. My father always says it’s because she has too much money, but he gets weird about money things so I’m not really sure that’s it. I love to visit her house. When I was younger I’d play for hours in the backyard. In the […]

on not writing

I have been trying to write all day and failing. First I was trying to write in the ever-ongoing Revisionland Scrivener Document of Doom, but I have been looking at the same gap between paragraphs that needs to be sewn together somehow periodically all day and nothing is coming to me.

several topics in one post

We went to closing night of Sleep No More on Sunday. I stayed away from the main plot this time, I think I only saw the Macbeths proper once or twice. I wandered through bits of Rebecca made more enchanting by having recently watched the Hitchcock film. Hecate was once again quite fond of my […]

flax-golden tales: prelude to the hunt

prelude to the hunt The jewellery is a distraction. Distraction is a key element of the prelude to the hunt. They never realize that. Shiny objects are highly effective. Perhaps some buried instinct tells them to run. To hide. But instinct and wisdom are always lost under infatuation and sparkle. They don’t even notice the […]

omglost!!!

I have been trying all day to come up with coherent things to say about LOST. I keep ending up with OMGLOST!!! And then I check the time to see how many hours are left until the S6 premiere. (Just under five & counting.) We finished our epic re-watch over the weekend. Five seasons in […]
