Leah tagged me on Facebook to write 25 random things about myself, then Sam tagged me to come up with 16 random tidbits. I’m not good at these things, but I’ll give it a try. I didn’t go to kindergarten but started first grade when I was 5 because my mother thought she had to put […]
This is truly cool. It’s a limited edition, hand-printed “knitting tarot” deck. I learned about it via new LJ friend . They aren’t releasing many images, apparently, unless you’re a friend of theirs on Flickr. What I can see looks very clean and simple.
Read it phonetically. When I’m really tired, I fall back into the Alabama accent. Made it to my appointment this morning. Made it to Katie’s appointment on the other side of the world. Then the car wouldn’t crank. In fact, it wouldn’t do anything at all. Not even the automatic door locks were working. No […]
Happy birthday to aquaeri, netcrimes and (though I’m unsure of the exact date) leduck! I’d appreciate it if y’all could also stop and pray (send energy/thoughts/whatever you do in your practice) for netcrimes and her family. She lost her father-in-law Saturday followed by her husband (only 40 years old!) on Sunday.
Brezsny’s words to Scorpios for this week: SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): “At the innermost core of all loneliness is a deep and powerful yearning for union with one’s lost self,” wrote Irish playwright Brendan Francis Behan. Let these words serve as your guiding light in the coming weeks, Scorpio. They should inspire you to be brave […]
Loc8tor — I can’t begin to imagine how much time we’d save with something like this. I don’t lose my glasses, since I have to wear them all the time. (Ask sambear about how badly I panic if I wake up in the night and cannot immediately put my hand on them.) Keys, PDAs, wallets, […]
Brezsny is seriously working on selling me on his book. This week’s message to Scorpios: SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): In my homeland of Northern California, four of the most overused terms are “juicy,” “sacred,” “radical,” and “wild.” I haven’t made a scientific study, but I’d guess that maybe 30 percent of all workshops and self-help […]
In this week’s newsletter, Rob Brezsny has this advice for me and other Scorpios: SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Widely regarded as a top military historian, Martin van Creveld has written books that have been influential in shaping modern theories of warfare. The U.S. Army makes his work required reading for its officers. That’s why it […]
Damn. Just—Damn. I suppose I have more faith in human nature than I think I do because whenever I hear about things like people shooting at copters trying to evacuate hospital patients, I can’t quite process the information. I’m horrified. I feel for those people. I wish I could help them. I feel utterly useless […]
