I know that, but I have been a bad girl, hanging on in fangirl/writers circles mostly. I peak over here every day, but haven’t been posting much. All of a sudden, I saw you on my side bar and realized how long it’d been since I’ve posted here....I’m even writing a novel, of which I have over 33,000 words done so far.

Wonderful news on your novel! Wow, that is amazing, I don’t think I have a novel in me.

Best of wishes on your novel -that is a huge undertaking, IMHO.

This one won an award and is nominated for another: It’s about two characters in the InuYasha manga, one who died, the other who lived; they were just maybe beginning to have a relationship. The one who died called herself a wind sorceress, and wanted to be as free as the wind. Right before she was killed, she was released from bondage, then attacked. She flew off to die where the man she was interested in could be with her. I think it stands alone enough to post here without any more explanation:

Sometimes the Wind

Sometimes,
when he is alone in his thoughts,
this inscrutable Lord of the Western Lands,
standing there in the open ground underneath a warming sun,
and the air is still and quiet,
the wind comes up, unexpectedly,
and nuzzles against his neck,
kissing his ears,
playing with his silver hair,
caressing his cheek
and he remembers her fiery eyes,
and voice,
and unspoken longings,
the whiteness of her bosom,
his final witness.

Something in him stirs, then,at those moments,
and he pauses,
thinking briefly at the might have beens
that were not,
that could not be,
that did not happen,
and knows the touch of regret,
and like the wind,
sometimes, he sighs.

Windmill


 

 

 

Even the whisper of a wind
Will woo these wind-catchers
To creak and groan, round and round,
Moaning above tulips, red and yellow.

And when one great dipping arm catches me
I soar screaming into baby-blue sky,
With wide and wild eyes
Stirring color to a blur.

“Hang on, hang on, hang on, ”
My laughing heart sings,
“Like love it lifts you
And brings you round,

And like a poem,
Dancing you
High above familiar ground,
It never wants to put you down.

Dennis Lambert

Rested up and less sore from Thursday’s wicked PT workout, I have definite plans for getting on the exercycle very soon.

Noel’s last effects on the States are upon us with gale winds and rain, limiting our options this Saturday.

How’s your side doing? We gotta keep our sides afloat.

The sun is out and the temps are in the low 70’s with very mild winds. Stay safe while the gale winds are blowing.

Don’t know the wind speeds yet. Yesterday I heard they were expecting gales here and up to 85 mph on Cape Cod. Am looking forward to the actual numbers.

The winds are certainly high enough to knock down power lines and weak tree limbs. Should you get high winds, you may want to consider lowering all of your windows from the top about an 1 and 1/2 inches.

It is cleverly disguised within the picture. It look like a partial reflection that you would get if you took a picture through a window.

Oh my, had a wonderful day. Went shopping with my daughter to the Bath and Beyond store, I saved $167.00, buying reduced or tiny damage goods.

I was able to get two lush new bath towels, really fancy trim with a tassel -large size, three wash cloths matching the towels, a gorgeous white shower curtain, a tall skinny metal rack with many shelves it was a little bent, and many items which I needed. Then we were hungry and went to Chilies to eat. It was wonderful.

After we arrived at my place she help me place the things that needed to be hung up.

That’s fine. I do believe it’s one of the best pieces I’ve written. That poem is posted in various places under the handle of Knittingknots (so you might want to indicate that, so nobody says we stole it!)

Sort of keep my fan fiction stuff separate from the rest of what I write...

I wanna say right now and right here, I am NOT wrinkled, (well, not much), worn by time perhaps, creased by my travels likely, but not wrinkled!

When we get to our age we do certain attributes that are worn with pride. It means we survived. The younger generation does not understand this. Ask one of the younger crowd what a “Slipstick” is and see what kind of answer they respond with. I had many a day with a furrowed brow with that gadget.

Wrinkle = life experiences that leave a bit of ‘weathering’.
Sag = gravity’s revenge for our learning to stand up.
Droop = Life tries to pull us down, and we fight to overcome it, the result is measurable displacement.
