A Fluttering Pause

I've been meaning to take a photograph of the goldfinches nesting in the bird bush - a giant thorny evergreen shrub (Pyracantha aka Firethorn) in the middle of the garden near the pond, which serves as an apartment complex for many tiny birds - since they're newcomers to our garden. However I'm not endowed with... Continue Reading →

SYW: Cut To The Quick

I have man flu at the moment. So I'm a bit fuggy in the pink labyrinth membrane. I had forgotten how useful a momentary sickness can be as a pause to reconsider... things such as what you've been up to with your life time. What your patterns, habits, rituals and rhythms of daily living, thought,... Continue Reading →

Queen of Swords

I seem to be on a bit of a post-writing break. It wasn't planned. It just sort of happened naturally, as many things in my life do... which is just as well since me + plans = this isn't going to work out. Anyway... I sometimes ask the tarot to give me a card for... Continue Reading →

SYW: A Partridge Without The Pear Tree

Even though I was born in Winter, I'm not a fan of the season. It does have some perks. One of which is that when the weather is wet, grey and cold, I have a very good excuse for staying inside and ignoring what's outside. I go into hibernation mode - wake me up when... Continue Reading →

Saturn Issues: You Make Me Dislike The Things That I Like

Have you ever had something which gave you pleasure ruined by someone else which turned that pleasure into a displeasure. Perhaps they pissed on a passion of yours, and as much as you told yourself not to be affected by it, you were affected and it changed your experience of that passion. Have you ever...

SYW: Steering Into The Fall

I keep being hit by these intense inner waves of strong emotion. It's not anger, or grief, or anything grim and gritty. It does feel as though it's energy which has been held back, detained and contained. It's rather refreshing. I'm not sure what to do with it, so I'm not doing anything with it... Continue Reading →

Things I’ve Learned From My Relationships With Other People

Every now and then I like to look at someone I know and wonder how I would perceive them if I knew nothing about them. How did I see them when we first met. How would I see them if we first met again. I tend to do that when I find myself taking them... Continue Reading →

Too Many Prehistoric Toads

What type of person brings out the best in you? What type of person brings out the worst in you? Do you ever wonder which type you are for others? Do you bring out the best in people or do you bring out the worst in them? I was thinking about that last night while... Continue Reading →

What Your Reaction Says About You

One of the things I've taught myself to do is to press pause on reacting until I've given myself time to think things through, gather more information about the matter, and process whatever I am reacting to logically. Of course there are situations when there is no time to do that, when I have to... Continue Reading →

SYW: The Lonely Guardian

Each of us is lonely in some way. Even when we are surrounded by friends, family, acquaintances, supporters, and colleagues, and are constantly caught up in social activities. There's a loneliness within. What's the purpose of the feeling? To me, it feels as though one purpose of loneliness is to guard individuality. To keep us... Continue Reading →

A Questionnaire – My Answers

Here are my answers to that questionnaire mash-up which I posted yesterday. If you're wondering why I split the questions and my answers into two separate posts... You're not wondering that, are you? Cool... Let's go... 1 - What is your favorite word? At the moment it's "jinjja" - pronounced a bit like "chincha". It... Continue Reading →

My Variation on the Balance For Better Theme

Today is apparently International Women's Day, it has a theme, and the organisers of this campaign have asked social media users to take and share a selfie of themselves doing a certain pose which looks a bit like a whatever I don't know why are you asking me shrug. You can find out the details... Continue Reading →

My Post Keeps Forgetting Its Title

One of the advantages of having a glitchy mind is that it makes you rather forgiving and flexible when dealing with glitches found elsewhere, such as on WordPress. It's glitching a lot at the moment. WordPress, that is. My mind is actually less glitchy than usual. If you're at all into astrology, you'll know that... Continue Reading →

Is that really a question or is it something else

When someone asks a question, do you take the question at face value or do you pause to consider the motivation behind the asking of the question? Do you wonder why the person is asking that question? Do you ask - Is that really a question or is it something else? Some questions are straightforward,... Continue Reading →

SYW: Engaging Chingu Mode

I'll explain that later. Unless I forget and then it will remain unexplained. Unless you decide to use the force (aka. the internet). But you might forget that you have such an exquisite ability at your disposal. I love the internet. I know it has faults, flaws, and dark sides to it... but it's a... Continue Reading →

Where You Thought You Were Going and Where You Ended Up

I used to wander off a lot as a child. One of my mother's favourite anecdotes to tell about toddler-me was the time we were at the beach, and a stranger ran up to my mother urgently pointing at a slowly disappearing into the distance child in a flotation ring on the sea. Is that... Continue Reading →

To Talk or Not To Talk

What inspires you to talk, say things out loud, share your voice with others? What has the opposite effect and inspires you not to talk, to keep quiet, stay silent? I talk a lot in my posts. That talking tends to be conversations which I'm having with myself inside my head. The reason I write... Continue Reading →

Hello and Welcome to Misfit Club!

Hello and welcome to Misfit Club! Before you can pass through the hallowed gates behind me... Yes, they're gates. Yes, I know they don't look like gates. Yes, they're made of driftwood and bent cutlery carefully tied together with bits of frayed string, old shoelaces. No, we didn't have any rusty nails or threadless screws... Continue Reading →

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

The title of this post comes from something I said out loud to my partner while I was stuck in a crowd of thousands of people while we were at a standstill waiting to be released by those in charge of regulating our flow. There was nothing else to do while waiting other than think... Continue Reading →

This is Genius!

No, not this post. This post is just a post on just a blog posted by just a person. What is genius is the video which I am going to share in this post. Why am I sharing this video? It's in answer to Fandango's Provocative Question #15. Fandango's questions is as follows: This week’s... Continue Reading →

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 →
