The Invisible Web

I was challenged to tell a story based on a photograph of a spider. I made several attempts to do so, but I kept being interrupted by my internet connection disconnecting itself. That's not an unusual occurrence. My attachment to the web is tenuous, and the strand breaks easily. It reattaches and detaches on a... Continue Reading →

SYW: We’re Sperm Waiting To Be Released

SYW: Are You Human Too?

Every now and then the whirring gears in my mind screech to a halt. Several things can cause that to happen. One is when I get the strong impression that someone with whom I am interacting doesn't see me as a human being. To them I am a thing. A tool. An object designed to... Continue Reading →

Answering Blogging Questions With An Astrological Twist

I love blogging. I also love astrology. And I love to spot connections, contrast, compare, mix things up. So I thought I'd answer some questions about blogging using astrology. This may get very complicated, confusing, and I may lose the point and plot, but that's okay, I'm at home in strange waters. The questions about... Continue Reading →

My Heart is U

There's a lot of chaotic chatter on the airwaves about a certain person who wants to build a certain wall with other people's money, and is so determined to do it that they've declared it an emergency. This post isn't about that story or that person or that wall. This post is about my story,... Continue Reading →

Should I Strongly Agree or Strongly Disagree?

Am I often suspicious of other people? Is "Finder's keepers" a fair rule? Do I find myself trying to beat my personal achievements? Do people rely on me to fix problems? In games, is winning my main objective? Do I like to stand out in a crowd? Maybe I should remain neutral and see if... Continue Reading →

Do you love me? Why? What is it about me that you love? Why? Please explain your love for me in detail until I'm satisfied with your answer. Will you always love me? Why not?

Shooting Star Thoughts

Last night I saw a shooting star. I always feel a thrill when I spot one... As I wrote those two previous sentences a thought streaked across my mind's sky and crashed into my post-writer's bubble, popping it - What do you care if I saw a shooting star and felt thrilled by it. Isn't... Continue Reading →

Create With Passion

Do you share your passions with others? Do you share the things, ideas, creations, people, artists, which rouse and arouse you, get your emotional juices flowing, with others or do you keep them to yourself? Do you share some and not others? What makes one source of passion shareable and the other one something to... Continue Reading →

Reading You, Writing You

No Matter How Strange It May Be

This post is... what is a post? Some people call posts - blogs. Which term is the correct one to use? Does it matter as long as you understand what someone is saying when they say it. But that isn't as easy as it seems, is it. I often misunderstand what people are saying. I... Continue Reading →

I Could Destroy You, But I Won’t

The title of this post refers to a conversation I have every now and then with my blog. I have deleted two previous blogs, so it's not an idle threat but a fact - I could delete this blog, but I won't... not yet anyway. Sometimes the urge to destroy my creation is intense. There's...

SYW: Chi Mi Ama, Mi Segua

Loosely translated it means - those who love me, follow me. It's something my father used to say, usually just after I'd told him that I wasn't going to do whatever it was that he wanted me to do. He loved to use Italian proverbs like playing cards to win a game of human chess.... Continue Reading →

The One Challenge

I thought I'd do this because I can. I'm very grateful that I can do things because I can. For many years I didn't think I could do anything. And the few things I thought I could do, I couldn't do them because I was told not to do them. If I did them anyway,... Continue Reading →
