A Moment of R.E.M. Zen… everybody hurts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ijZRCIrTgQc For those who think they are alone... we are all alone together. Everybody hurts, just as deeply as you do... hang in there!

Where is my Hoverboard!?!

I was just informed that today is the day that Marty McFly traveled to in the future. Really can't be bothered to research this 'fact'. Really can't remember anything about the movie other than the hoverboard. Where is my hoverboard!?! I'm certain I need one, doesn't everyone? Why are we all still bothering to walk...

La Dolce Vita? Think Twice!

Ah! Italia! La Dolce Vita! Federico Fellini! Anita Ekberg in the fountain! I have met Anita, she was a friend of the family. La Famiglia! I have also met Federico… he was a bit of a persona non grata because a certain aspiring actress, also know as that histrionic narcissist who is my mother, refused... Continue Reading →

Is This Brain Melting Season?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FYTc55nGEI   This is me right now. Seriously. People's brains seem to be melting... all logic seeping away leaving nothing but emotional drama. And I can't blame this impression on trying to quit smoking, because it started while I was still in full chimney mode. I made a silly remark, which I thought was amusing,... Continue Reading →

The Smoke Screen

Fumo-E-Vino by MoonVooDoo That is me in the photo, doing one of the things I enjoy. Smoking a ciggy, sipping some wine, sitting on the back doorstep, staring out at the garden, contemplating. Sometimes my contemplations are existential, philosophical, psychological. At other times they are musings of a lighthearted variety. I have conversations with people... Continue Reading →

Love Me… Or Else!

Image via Kelsey Meech on Pinterest We all have a dark side. What we think that dark side is, what it entails, how it feels, all depends upon what we think our light side is, and how that feels. But of course it is not all about us, what we think and feel. Others often... Continue Reading →

A Quiet Truth

CamouflageCat by MoonVooDoo I have a confession. I like blogging when I think all other bloggers are asleep. Partly this is due to the fact that that is when I can do it, and partly it is due to the quiet truth that I think no one will see my posts. I know... it's a... Continue Reading →

Internet Treasures: Iconic Photos

La Dame Indignee by Robert Doisneau One of my favourite photography blogs is Iconic Photos created by Alex Selwyn-Holmes. He gives so much rich history to photographs, tells the story behind the image, many of which are indelibly etched in our minds, which have captured a moment in time, and we recognise them when we...

Everything is a matter of perspective. Take the quote above for instance. Why is reading backwards considered a pointless talent to have? Who decided this? Someone who can't read backwards or someone who can and has found no use for doing so? And yet, if you can read backwards does it not also mean you... Continue Reading →

The Riddle of the Scissors

So today I bought some new scissors. Exciting, I know. I tend to put off buying new things until the things which I have fall apart. Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without buy a new one to replace the knackered thing. I hate shopping. Decisions, decisions to be made,... Continue Reading →

Which Social Media Personality Are You?

I thought this was amusing, and quite intriguing. I'm guessing most people are a pick 'n' mix. I am seesawing between The Quizzers and The Dippers. Neither is quite right, nor quite wrong. I am cyclical in my Social Media use, and where I focus my attention depends upon whether I am in visual or... Continue Reading →

I Wonder What They Think of Me

I Wonder What They Think Of Me In every social interaction, be it in the Outernet or on the Internet, a portion of our attention is focused upon the impression we are making with our words, our looks, our demeanour, on the other person or people. We think - I wonder what they think of... Continue Reading →

Internet Treasures: What Were You Raised By Wolves? by Verabee

What Were You Raised By Wolves? by Verabee This is a very poignant and beautiful tale told entirely through illustrations, no words needed, by the very talented Vera Brosgol. When I first saw this story it hit a very deep chord within me. I identified with the girl. I knew her. I am her. An... Continue Reading →

Saturn in Aries

SaturnInAries by MoonVooDoo I have a problem with authority. With rules. With control. With other people. Astrologically it is written all over my chart. Narrowing down which planet, position, aspect, is responsible for this tendency is a bit of a game of roulette. The pointing finger keeps jumping around the chart wheel, landing on a...

Fluffy Serendipity

A few years ago, about this time of year, a baby wild rabbit got caught in an old chicken wire fence.... I was in the kitchen and heard these awful shrieks. I did not know what it was. I went outside, and caught sight of a commotion in an overgrown hedge. It was being caused... Continue Reading →

Things You Should Know – About Curiosity

Curiosity killed the cat, satisfaction brought him back. So he could be curious again and again, needing far more than nine lives to keep him going. We are all born curious. It is the muse who inspires us to learn. Everything is fascinating. Everything needs to be explored. It pushes us to grow, to move.... Continue Reading →

Paloma Faith – Upside Down

Internet Treasures: Sabian Symbol Oracle

Sabian Symbols Oracle - Aquarius 21 There are days when I feel a vague sense of unease, I don't know why, which is part of why I am uneasy. One of the places I like to visit when this mood hits is The Oracle at Sabian Symbols created by Linda Hill. I often find that... Continue Reading →

The First Rule of Rule Breaking

Life sometimes feels like it is just one big rulebook, full of rules which start with the word ‘Don’t’. Some are helpful. These are the rules of experience. Someone, usually more than one person, has done these things and suffered the consequences, so the rule is created as a way of saying ‘I did this... Continue Reading →

Rebel Yellow

I'm a rebel. Not a particularly brave rebel. I don't rebel on behalf of a cause. I don't do it because I see an injustice and want to right a wrong. In fact I don't have any reason for being rebellious, it just seems to be my default position. I was born this way. It's... Continue Reading →

Consumed by the Flames of Obsession

What is obsession? What does it mean? What is its purpose? It must have a reason for hooking us, and reeling us in like helpless little fish. At first it is beautiful, a shiny, irresistible lure, teasing us, winking flirtatiously, and playfully dancing before our eyes, inviting us to grab hold of it. We bite,... Continue Reading →

Why Do Certain Songs Get Stuck In Our Heads?

I woke up this morning with a song stuck in my head. It didn't come from the dream I was having just before I awoke, at least, I don't remember any songs playing in my dream. They occasionally do. I recall many years ago Moon River playing so loudly in a dream that I had... Continue Reading →

Riddle of the Bear

Bizarro Earth by Dan Piraro I was thinking about my History teacher who told me all redheads were considered the devil's spawn in ancient times. He was a redhead. And he had a wickedly good sense of humour. He was also a great teacher. He liked to make the subjects he taught interesting, and of... Continue Reading →
