Vocal Storms

It was temporal dysplasia... which is apparently a made-up condition created just for a special lead character in a TV show to make her even more special. Oh, and I've figured out where the queen wasp is setting up her kingdom - in the shed. She buzzed me, circling my head, letting me know what... Continue Reading →

SYW: Outsideness

The wasp, the guy who said stay away from me because everyone says I'm bad, halfies... The previous short paragraph are notes to myself which I jotted down when I created this post on Monday afternoon when I copy-pasted the questions Melanie included in her latest Share Your World: Melanie of Sparks From A Combustible...

SYW: Beak of Chicken, Tail of Bull

I have no fingerprints at the moment so if I wanted to get up to something which required leaving no digital traces, now would be the time to do it... Except I'm having a me-day today, which basically means I'm dolce-far-niente-ing. Over the last week I've been doing quite a bit of physical work, DIY-ing,... Continue Reading →

SYW: Melalimelo

It's earlier than I thought it was, and since I'm not completely knackered from my part in the DIY escapade, I'll do this... This being Melanie of Sparks From A Combustible Mind's Share Your World 4-29-19. If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be...

SYW: Face To Face With Another You

Hi... It's time for Melanie of Sparks From A Combustible Mind's Share Your World 4-22-19 Without further ado... What was the last thing you read digital or print? Apart from the news... which recently prompted me to read up on Sri Lanka to understand more about what is going on there at the moment. One... 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 →

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 →

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 →

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 →

A Questionnaire

This is a mash-up of several well-known questionnaires, plus some added extras from a selection of job interview questions. Please feel free to share your answers in the comments section of this post or in a post of your own if you're a blogger - if you do a post please share a link to... 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 →

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 →

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 →

The Mystery of Strange Magic

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Now that the small talk is over, let's delve into that mysterious magic known as asking questions, which has such a strange effect on the human psyche. When someone asks a question, whether it is directed at you or not, do you feel compelled to answer? Even if you say nothing,... Continue Reading →

SYW: The Heart-Shaped Edition

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? What's wrong with me that you can't love me forever!?! Oh, I see... well, that's not acceptable, change that about... Continue Reading →

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 →

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 →

Learn Narcissist in 5 Minutes for FREE

So you want to learn Narcissist in 5 minutes for free. Okay. The clock is ticking. Let's do this. But before we go any further I need to answer a few questions. It won't take me more than a kazillion years. Take a seat, shut up and put up with it. No, not on that... Continue Reading →

SYW: I’ll Think Of A Title Later

I can't think of a thing to say. Ah, wait, false alarm. Phew! You were almost spared the pleasure of another one of my posts. Or something like that. I thought I'd do three challenges in one. Plus one from me to myself - I'm going to attempt to give straightforward/short answers. Challenge #1 comes... Continue Reading →

9 Things I’ll Do in My Next Life

I've been creatively challenged to do something I'm really not good at doing at all - making plans. I've tried, tried and tried again, and I'm still waiting for that moment when I succeed at it after all that practice. This creative challenge comes from The Reverist of Riddles & Reveries, where he writes beautifully... Continue Reading →

What’s a Biggest Lie?

If you know what a "biggest lie" is, please let me know as I've just spent more than an hour trying to figure out what it is. It has been both interesting and frustrating trying to figure it out. Of course I ended up on Wikipedia reading the extensive list of types of lie which... Continue Reading →

The Tell A Story Challenge

A few days ago Pensitivity challenged me to write a story to go with an image. Now it's my turn to challenge others to do the same. After a bit of investigative work, I've found the source of this challenge - The Eclectic Contrarian: Tell The Story Challenge - which means I now know the... Continue Reading →

SYW: Scared money can’t win and a worried man can’t love

I thought I'd mix things up a little and combine two writing challenges in one post, since in my mind they go together as they're both asking provocative questions. Things will probably get messy... One challenge comes from Fandango of This That And The Other in his latest Fandango's Provocative Question #10 This is his... Continue Reading →

Best Guess For This Image: Feeling Wrecked

I've been challenged, by the wonderfully creative Pensitivity, to write a story or a poem to go with the featured image of this post. There were actually two images to choose from - to see the other one you'll have to click and visit Pensitivity: Missed the vital bit........ I picked the one with the... Continue Reading →
