This link fills me with joy and horror a the same time: Speak With Conviction It’s about how we never speak with conviction…how we end so many of our sentences with questions, as if we are uncertain, unwilling to take a stand about what we say. This seems sad to me, as if we devalue ourselves and our opinions. What are we afraid of? I know I’ve done this. I tend to try not …

One of the things I’ve realized in the past week is that I talk a lot more on my Live Journal than I do on my blog….the reason is easy, I have the LJ fairly locked up, but just anyone, ex-lovers, people who slammed me against my locked in Middle School, or people who’d like to add my ears to their collection, could read my innermost winges and maundering and fears and goofiness. Yeah, …

So, it’s the first day of the semester.  I’ve always lived by the academic calendar…I’ve never really escaped academia, so today feels like the first day of the new year, rather than the first day of the fall semester.  Somehow the first day in January doesn’t feel all that special.  Most of the fencers have dropped in to say hi, so that makes things kind of extra nice.  I did miss them. I am …

I think that life is about wanting what we cannot have. (That is not, point of fact, the meaning of life…no one knows that.) We want what we cannot or should not have, yet we hope for it, long for it anyway. Maybe that is ingrained in our natures, maybe that’s what keeps us going forward. (PS — the song in my head right now is “Everything will be Alright” by The Killers. So …

I was going to write a post about how my block might just be gone because I’m writing something and I like it and it’s fun… But the post was interrupted by my desire to grab my can of coke, as it is lunch time, after all. Apparently, one can throw a can of cola into their purse and have it puncture itself on a hair barrette. My SCA/insurance cards are all ruined…the iPod …

This could be a meme of sorts, if you wanted to try it out. Because I am a spiritual person, sometimes I try and see how things go through my life, how faith or deity or coincidence or luck play a role in how I’ve gotten to a point. And I was thinking about how I finally got started in fencing, and I could see this silver thread of events through my life that …

Is the title of the new short story I am writing.  I know the path of the tale, as it wends through a Victorian bed and breakfast, and I feel the fire and the circle of it, so I am confident enough in its completion to actually mention it.  😉  It’s a ghost story One of my friends and I are trying to keep ourselves motivated by running a competition to see who can …

I am suddenly in a very good mood. Well, it started…sort of…last night, half way through my last event of the semester, the honors dinner for the department. Half way through any event, you’ve gotten to the point where everything that’s going to go wrong has – note the italics – most likely have happened.So you can relax, enjoy, and let yourself sort of unwind from the OMG SO MUCH TO DO fury of …

Hello, Life. Hello, Cindy. Well, I’ve decided that I’m going to get a grip on you, and hold fast. The days go too quickly for me, and there’s so much I want to get done. I’ve heard this before. Stop being snarky. I am going to do this…I’m going to write one thousand words a day and clean a drawer a day. That way I will become neat and organized and get a book …

I have to confess, my love for Bruce Campbell is growing in leaps and bounds…it’s always been there, because I think he’s just neat, but after re-watching The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr (Which makes me want to know why Jules Carey isn’t a huge star? he’s such a good actor…his timing is brilliant…) and now I’m netflixing Jack of all Trades (Napoleonic War comedy! Spies! Swashes! Buckles!) I am reminded how much I …
