eternal ?

We learn from the light and we learn from the dark; In the light the answers seem clear and stark While the dark’s an eternal question mark Ever receding from the feeble spark Of human knowledge, to infinity– Beyond which we will never see– For how can such finite souls as we Ever hope toContinue reading “eternal ?”

NaNoWriMo – Day 24

On the 21st I really put in the hours so I could catch up, writing almost non-stop from the time I got up to the time I went to sleep. I participated in a few sprints as well, and by the end of the night I had written over 2,700 words! Nearly half of thatContinue reading “NaNoWriMo – Day 24”

The freedom to get it wrong — Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo

Watching the fish in the pond the other day, I noticed that although they all swim, as you would expect from fish, they all swim differently. The huge sturgeon glide through the water with no appearance of effort at all. The one poorly fish with suspected dropsy expends huge amounts of effort to get around…yet […]Continue reading “The freedom to get it wrong — Sue Vincent’s Daily Echo”

Masks of Stone

The things I love, I love alone. Your gaze is blank, your wandering mind Blinks behind its mask of stone; What I have found you cannot find. What I have lost was never yours What I have sought you let alone Where you see windows, I see doors; My windows are your walls of stone.Continue reading “Masks of Stone”

NaNoWriMo: Day 18

Well, I wanted to blog something on the 15th because it’s the halfway mark. I thought about giving it the humorously nerdy title “Beware the Ides of NaNoWriMo!” but apparently the Romans considered the Ides of November to be the 13th, unlike March in which it was the 15th. Not that it matters now. IContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Day 18”

Another Power Outage

Last night there was a storm with high winds, so I was prepared for the power to go out again. Not prepared in the sense of having bought a backup generator, because let’s face it, given how the pandemic is going, that’s not about to happen any time soon. But I had a cooler ready,Continue reading “Another Power Outage”

NaNoWriMo: Falling Behind

Some days, writing doesn’t come easy. Well, that’s not really true, is it? After all, here I am writing this. So I guess it’s a certain type of writing that doesn’t come easy on some days. For instance, I’ve never been good with deadlines. Anything that has to be finished by a certain time orContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Falling Behind”

NaNoWriMo: Day 10

Yesterday wasn’t such a good day in terms of National Novel Writing Month, or even just my writing in general. Earlier in the day I had to wait down by my driveway for my no-contact deliveries for over an hour, and then when they finally came I had to haul all those groceries up theContinue reading “NaNoWriMo: Day 10”
