For Jesse

This is a blog update. If you are reading this, then I have done it already.

Here are some words to read.

Exhaustion bites layers out

Skies, seas, bees, fearing nearing dawn

Sun brightens bones

Shells scattered

dead matter

head splatter

Nothing sells better.

GeekStar Costuming and an Indiegogo

This is only a small blog. It is not a tall blog or a big blog or a hit blog or a groovy blog or a hella cutty blog or a gnar blog. It is not a giant brand blog or a tastemaking niche blog.

It is a teeny tiny personal blog and as such will probably have very little impact on my old juggling coach’s handcrafted campaign to spread color changing LED cat/kitten ears to the world.

But we all get by with a little help from our friends.

There are many appeals for assistance out there in this modern world filled with technobabble and live feeds. Unique and wonderful handcrafted items are as rare as they are wonderful.

One of the most wonderful is Geekstarcostuming.com. So check out her indiegogo campaign  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/geekstar-fluffy-color-changing-led-cat-ears-cosplay#/  there are only 17 days left.

And if cat ears are not your style, don’t sweat it. She has much geekery to festoon yourself with. From glowing flowers to pokemon to bb8 to tardi(ses) to batman symbols and mario stars. There are so many more great finds to fund at her handmade store.

So check it out!

I leave you with these lyrics to lubricate your heartstrings

With a Little Help from My Friends
What would you do if I sang out of tune
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
And I’ll try not to sing out of key
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
What do I do when my love is away
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
How do I feel by the end of the day
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)
No, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Do you need anybody
I need somebody to love
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love
Would you believe in a love at first sight
Yes, I’m certain that it happens all the time
What do you see when you turn out the light
I can’t tell you but I know it’s mine
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Do you need anybody
I
Could it be anybody
I want somebody to love
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
with a little help from my friends

 

Sleeping Well

Insomnia is a constant companion through life. I spent about 4 days running on 4 or fewer hours of sleep, one night I didn’t sleep at all.

I was struggling with the idea of taking really heavy sleep medication that didn’t work four days in a row. That’s when a friend said I should try an edible. The ones he took the day before put him to sleep easily.

I remember eating edibles in college and having them a few times post legalization. I thought it over and figured I might as well try it. I took two servings the first night and slept about 8 hours. The next day I felt kind of groggy, but I was relieved. I then took 20mg a night the next two nights and finally feel rested again.

Sleep issues are a difficult foe in the game of life. Sleep rarely comes easy for me, especially in spring and summer. As of the beginning of May, I have all the energy. It is a relief to find something that actually works, that is reliable, and that I don’t need a prescription for. Cannabis infused chocolate caramel, an indica strain. The effect can be strong, so i took it slow, but it worked. And I am grateful for the sleep.

Writing Robust

Early in the last year, I made a a silent yet stolid agreement with myself. I would write as much as possible.

I have always known that I wanted to write. The papers presented to the mr and ms. in partial fullfillment of the course to the stupid little sketches in 8th grade to brit lit. and all the shebers howard. To the jj johnson even though he was a dick. To the shhissel and Mr. Syr.

It was the Timne’s class that was the best. We read Frankenstein and the Romantic poets. She wrote that book when she was 18 with bysshe her bo and the byron lord.

I had so much respect for that monumental accomplishment.

Anyways, I could never commit to writing more than 10k on any given story.

Last year in february I took Christi Kruugs Wildfire Writing class at Clark college. It worked.

Since February last year, I have written 100k+ in freewrites and 65k on my first novel.

That is what i call robust 🙂

Photographic

Trials, Troubles, Tribulations…Triumphant.

The night falls fast. The solstice roars. Caves echo and the creatures stir in resistant to the sun.

They underestimate. They hesitate. The fire rages brighter. The eyes more vigilant. The howling more insistent.

Light in the dark.

Light in the dark

Sun seed, star dust

Heart broken pieces

shine the way.

to light

to life

to joy.
