* Tabled for BARCC today, which was exactly the right thing to do after medical agita - a thing what helps people, and keeps me from stewing in my own juices. Was a good tabling. I managed a passable few dialogues in my elementary-school Spanish, and they provided lunch for us - cheeseburgers and potato salad, om nom nom.

* New short story germinating in my brain. The workshop assignment previously mentioned. Has to include trains and convesation. So. "The Cartographer's Funeral".

* I frogged the previously almost-finished recycled sari silk headband and redid it, longer and thinner; six rows were better than ten. It is perfect now. Knitted entirely in the waiting room and on the bus & train.

* Places You Haunt continues to germinate, too. Doodle's voice is more present every day.

* I am grateful. For so much.

* I am homesick. Homesick for life-before-chronic-illness. But, like many of the countries of my grandmother's youth, that home no longer exists. So I blow a kiss in its general direction, and I keep walking my path.

* I ought to call my grandmother tonight. My parents are out of the country, and she's notorious for not taking care of herself - with them not around, I ought to check up on her.

* I also ought to write about all the things I love about BARCC.

* feste_sylvain is returning from Israel right about now, which makes all of us very happy.

* Elayna is likely on her way home from her Girl Scout trip right about now, too. Which makes *me* very happy.

So. I am doing fine. How are you?

Thinking I'm probably depressed, but it's impossible to tell, since I'm not feeling much of anything at the moment.

Trying to get up the gumption to do an Anti-Apollyon Diaries entry, or get to the "five words" entries that I gathered the information on so long ago, just to write SOMETHING... but I seem to have become fossilized by inertia.

*lol* Up and awake at the wrong time, thanks to pregnancy insomnia and discomforts. Should be going back to bed... :P

We always long for home. Helath.

I found my doll mode again...after practice doll's great success with a new style of painting WTD doll hopefully will be fab :)

I just got a couple of patterns in for knitting - I crochet like mad now, but started knitting a few years ago...beginning chains. I may pick it up again. It intrigues me!

Yay for kidlet being home. I miss mine being that age. So much to converse about with them!

Happy Friday!

Somewhat of a fucked up day. Figured something out that made me both really fucking happy and incredibly upset. Don't want to talk about it right now.

Threw up this afternoon. I fucking hate being sick.

Better now.

How are you?

Had a 'way stressful week, thanks to my insane boss. But tonight I'm going to work out all the dregs of strees by seeing one of the greatest punk bands evarrr: NoMeansNo. W00t!

Awesome!

I am going to be thinking about the Cartographer's Funeral for days now.

It would be beyond strange if we had the same Cartographers, but I thank you for the spark regardless.

Hopefully I'll be happy with it (when I get to write it!) and will post it next week!

That's what I shall do now! I shall take my honey wine outdoors into the sun and read some of the WTD book!

(it's a physically gorgeous book, btw.)

Ooooh, honey wine!

(Thank you!)

I only read five pieces, because then my head was full.

Your work: also something I can fall into.

I am trying not to think about the interview I have for a full time job on Monday.

I am in the mountains with sister+baby, parents, grandma, aunt and uncle. Am biting my tongue a lot and trying to make sure my thick skin is on.

I spent a weekend in the woods with only women and made a fantastic campfire, which I had never done before. Hint: unless you have lighter fluid, which we didn't, and which I don't recommend, fireworks won't set your campfire alight. But the pictures of the attempt still looked cool.

"...that home no longer exists. So I blow a kiss in its general direction, and I keep walking my path."

Inspiring, beautiful, and like a novel unto itself. Thank you.
