  1. Abigail's blow-job;

    Storm Abigail that is.

    The Leaf-monsters, that are what remains of next doors' runner bean stalks, with they're green an yellow overcoats, partly sheltered by old Larchie, dance and sway to her tune.
    My chestnut tree with just a few remaining dark brown wizened leaves is all but bare, she seems to be winning that one. And yet, that big old Sycamore at the top of the garden seems to have barely shed a leaf. Although, on closer inspection i can see that the green colour of the leaves ...

  2. Priorities

    I feel like I have an abundance of friends who are participating in NaNoWriMo and I am so envious of their motivation and productivity. I had my third child in August and have written maybe 2k words in my novel since then. I can feel my story slipping away from me at times...then I sit down at a time like right now and it all comes flooding back and I feel guilt. The same way I would feel for neglecting a close loved one. It's both depressing and reassuring. I am still in love with my story. There ...

  3. My personal thoughts/observations about the attacks in Paris

    After reading dozens and dozens of items about the attacks on Feedly, Drudge, and BadBlue I had to post my own viewpoint of the attacks.

    In general, terrorism is war and, as Pope Francis said, we are now in WWIII!

    I also posted lots and lots of links to stories, images, and videos @ http://lvcabbie.blogspot.com

  4. The Social Media Struggle

    The other night I'm sitting here thinking of what to do about this mess. The neighbors moved out- so the building is quiet, aside from a certain kitty making a ruckus. It's difficult to think when she's yowling.

    Of course that's not the current in a long list of complications I've had to content with over the years. It's been a battle. There has been pressure to do one thing or another with my work, to have characters be of a certain concept or another, and then finally someone new ...

  5. My morning cups

    Billy Bob Thornton was at the donut shop this morning. The lady who serves me my muffin at 5 oísomething in the morning was asking me why I donít buy the coffee anymore, and I was going on about how I bought a 5 lb bag online and how great it is until I noticed she was no longer smiling so I shut up about it, but it is really great as I get about 400 cups of coffee for fifty bucks, and the coffee is not only much stronger and better tasting, but also less acidic, which I was able to judge by the ...

  6. Depression

    A lot of folks here have suffered from depression, myself included - and I always try to be encouraging in my comments. Sometimes, though, I don't practice what I preach. Comes from being human, I'll admit. Like recently, coming down with sinusitis (or as I like to call it, the creeping crud) at times I feel the waves of hopelessness and uselessness cover me like a rotted blanket.

    Despite medicine, or maybe because of it, I start hating myself and my life again. Like I've often ...

  7. Low Pressure

    Low pressure system drifting in, not enough to rain, but cold enough to put the shiver, Mondays are often called the worst. Not this one.

  8. Life eh? No. 2

    When you just want to crawl into the sack and turn your back on the world for a while, but people are depending you. You can't show weakness, you have to keep going. How much longer can i do this?

  9. Paper finished and stuff

    Well, yep. John Locke. The question:

    In his Letter Concerning Toleration Locke says, "The commonwealth seems to me to be a society of men constituted only for the procuring, preserving, and advancing their own civil interests. Civil interests I call life, liberty, health, and indolency of body; and the possession of outward things, such as money, lands, houses, furniture, and the like."He also says this regarding ecclesiastical and civil authority, "The boundaries on

  10. The human tongue.

    The human tongue is a wondrous thing,
    offering sweet comfort or misery.
    Not knowing the difference between

    how stupid I have always been
    and how stupid I would have to be.

  11. Imagery. And madness. The usual.

    A swordsman with no master, no apprentice. No purpose.

    A blade, forged with radioactive fire, stoked with napalm. A blade with no sheath, and no hand to grip it. There is no resting place for it. What place is meant to hold a blade?

    A gray stray cat follows the crows, who follow the cat wherever it goes, whenever they find food they share. But about each other, they couldn't care.

    The cat is a girl, the crows are a man, two halves of a whole, a loaf of bread ...

  12. You're Too Bright

    Just a quick PSA:

    If you're one of these folks that think "more is better" all the time, please stop. Specifically, your headlights. I walk to work now, before dawn. It seems that a bunch of people like to flash their bright headlamps at me when they approach.
    "Look! A Person!"
    I'm not a deer. I'm carrying a small flashlight and wearing reflectors. I'm not going to jump out in front of you. You just blinded me, and there is a drop-off to a ditch ...

  13. Invasion of the butterfly snatchers

    Several years ago I worked at a private preschool...


    Because of a recent theme unit, I have had the discomfort of witnessing first hand the disappointing and icky reality of the life cycle of the butterfly.

    A couple weeks ago, a plastic SILO cup appeared on the counter where we store the CD player and dust-caked oscillating fan. Inside the cup was a 2-inch bed of goo resembling peanut butter and on top of the goo lazed 6 tiny fuzz balls no bigger then ľ inch in ...

    Seattle area teen shocks friends and family with Facebook declarations that life sucks

    Friends of a Seattle area teen were taken aback earlier this week when she made shocking statements that life sucks on the social media site Facebook. The statements surrounded her father's refusal to allow her to attend a party.

    Laura Stemple, a fourteen year old living in Mercer Island, first began hinting at the issue as early as last month but it became clear more recently when she ...

    You there, I see you looking at me in the rearview mirror. Whatís up? You think Iím vibing you? Iím not. I donít care. Drive how you drive. You should pay attention to whatís in front of you. Take your time. Turning across traffic is dangerous. Donít hurry; but then donít take too long. Go too slow and you might get hit, and I donít want thatóImagine the noise; earsplitting, worse than annoying; tire squeal, two metal bodies colliding. You, your vehicle, the other: crushed, damaged, parts

  16. Foggy days.

    Much like the recent weather, there's a mist clinging to my mind.

    I'm taking something for the never-ceasing throb still coming from my foot. To counter the sleepiness I also have ingested quite a bit of caffeine. My thoughts are there-they never stop. But it feels like there's a fog keeping them from coming to the front.

    I welcome it's presence, even if it's from all the ingested substances.

    It's a curse, mostly. The benefits are, I never get 'stumped' ...

  17. The Twilight Road

    Settle in boys and girls, this is going to be a long one but it is something I want to get off my chest: I know it's common to jest and suggest one's self is crazy. Especially in more modern times. However, I've always meant it literally. I believe I am insane. When I close my eyes, I feel the presence of things that aren't there. My back is heavy and my flesh is larger. Tactile sensations, visions and false inputs are in endless multitudes.


    It all began two decades ago on ...

  18. Kicked out of the "club" (too long to read)

    I was just starting to fit in too and now it's like I'm the guy who told the poot joke at a business luncheon. Oh well, life goes on and there are other clubs.

    Need a rewind for this little movie? It'd be a pleasure. I joined a forum for artists. After all, I intend to be one and it'd be nice to have "connections". The problem? They're very well-oriented in "fine art" and I'm... well, I know less than ten paintings by name, on a good day I can remember who painted ...

  19. The height of our darn doors. {Gross story warning}

    There are moments in my life where I question my sanity. I joke about it, I do, but often, I wonder if I really am off-kilter.

    I was about to step outside, and our back porch doors open inward, like most. I carelessly set down my left foot directly in it's path, and swung it open.

    Well, surprise surprise, it jammed my left big toe.

    Normally it wouldn't be a problem. Just a few minutes of pain. I ignored it at first, but, looking closer, the nail had been ...

  20. Holidays for real

    I am finally finding my groove, even with my normal self-doubt I can't help feeling a sense of positivity. I don't want to label it but it feels like optimal flow may be yet again within my grasp in multiple area's of interest. My brother and I are working on a graphic novel that I will write and he will draw. I have a few ideas for some independent literature adventures. My memory and mind is feeling better than a year ago. Even though I don't feel as on point as I did when I was 21 I have an overwhelming ...

    Then winter starts, to be the world's owner.

    At this moment, autumn's wind blows my hair,
    but it will die down and be sunny, too.
    One should take care when sun is not there.
    The lonely tears source, I need to go through.

  23. Ass-kickery (Livejournal)

    I'm still testing the waters.
    I seem to be suffering from a weird case of performance anxiety in regards to sharing my recent writings here. This has never happened to me before. As a result, my old entries from LiveJournal will have to do do for now. This one made me smile for some reason.

    My new word is "ass-kickery". I stole it from someone's website, but I've chosen not to share the link with whoever-is-reading-this. I had to post this on my livejournal because

  24. The Wall... (Language... lots of it.)

    I'm about to kick a creative hornet's nest. Watch and learn, maybe you too can learn to stick your foot in your mouth as skillfully as I. Take heed, for it can take decades to master it and even I stumble from time to time. I mean this not to offend any specific person here but totally understand that it might do that. I'm not "targeting" anyone here, know that up front.

    I've hit the fuckin' wall. Yeah, I put a language tag on this post but I reckon most people wouldn't expect ...

His grandmother and I after had him for four years and thought we had done a good thing, but totally destroyed his life, for he wants to come back to us. I believe we have committed the unpardonable sin, destroying anothers life. My pain is more than I can bare. Thoughts please. Writer one
