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 →

Mercury in Aquarius

MercuryInAquarius by MoonVooDoo A million thoughts and ideas in the mind bumping into each other trying to get to the front of the queue and grab centre stage. Pay attention to me, and me, and me, and me. Some quiet, some loud, some singing, some screeching, some in foreign tongues, some in gibberish, some female,... Continue Reading →

Paloma Faith – Upside Down  PALOMA FAITH - UPSIDE DOWN Angels watching over me With smiles upon their face 'Cause I have made it through this far In an unforgiving place It feels sometimes this hills to steep For a girl like me to climb But I must knock those thoughts right down I'll do it in my own...

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 →

That’s Stereotypical! Fuck it!

Capricorn - German Vogue's Swarovski Calendar for 2012Please note: Written about 3 months ago. Still applies. Fuck yeah! Oh, and there is some mild swearing. Yes, I consider fuck to be a mild oath. For me anyway. I often edit my use of swear words when in polite company. I sometimes do it with my... Continue Reading →

Snow Coffee in a Hobbit House

SnowDay by MoonVooDoo I still have no running water. Whatever is causing the problem, other than the below freezing temperature, has baffled the water company. They are hoping to fix it today, but with more snow predicted and falling as I write this, it may be difficult for them to work on the pipes. Or... Continue Reading →

A Moon Powered Train

DropIt by MoonVooDoo Please note: I wrote this last Winter. But since I've been getting strange messages from the universe via errant Monopoly cards found in my garden, one of which was Water Works, I thought I'd post this, and the post after this, which is a companion to this one. Oh, I wish I... Continue Reading →

MonopolyCards by MoonVooDoo

MonopolyCards by MoonVooDoo I keep finding these old Monopoly cards in my garden. First one was the Water Works card. Which made me laugh because this past Winter the temperatures dropped so low that the water supply pipe to my house froze. The water company responded very quickly, gave me loads of bottled water... they... Continue Reading →

Gathering Moss

Why is Kate Moss always naked. That was the question I asked myself in my dream last night. I sometimes have conversations with myself in my dreams. Usually it starts with a part of my sleeping consciousness waking up inside a dream and observing what is going on, then wondering why what is going on... Continue Reading →

The Places We Live…

A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens I recently came across a photograph on an architectural and interior design website which was of an apartment in Paris overlooking the Eiffel tower. At first glance I simply thought, wow, how attractive. Then I paused and looked again. The view was very familiar. So was the... Continue Reading →
