Don’t Do It Halfway

livsnjutareDo you know anyone like this?  I do.  I admire them.  Everyone I’ve met who loves life deeply exudes passion for…all the things.  A life filled with passion is a great thing.

How Do You Process Your Thoughts?

babelismI tend to process complicated things out loud.  Whether those are emotions, concepts, plans, whatever, I need to talk it out.  Responses are generally not necessary because what pours out of my mouth is a confusions of ideas, speech, and thought.  Once I sift through the rubble, I have a cohesive…something.

In this respect, I can relate to Sherlock Holmes and the skull.  I have been known to talk to the dog.  Dexter isn’t the best conversationalist, but he’s an excellent listener.

I Can Relate

abibliophobiaEvery time I head out on a trip, I begin to get anxious unless I’ve packed a book for every day I’m going to be away.  I’m not talking comic books here.  These are novels.  They’re heavy.  They take up massive amounts of space.  There’s always a nagging feeling I’ve forgotten something unless I have them.

Exploring the Strange and Marvelous

selcouthI like exploring the unfamiliar, rare and strange.  It almost always turns out to be marvelous.  Every time I uncover a gem of knowledge and get to polish and shine until it becomes part of my collection, it makes me happy.

Retail Therapy

oniochalasiaOh, oniochalasia, I know you well.  Otherwise known as I’m-having-a-bad-day-I-need-pineapple-shoes.  Not always the best way of coping with the vagaries of life, but surprisingly effective.

Life lesson – don’t use credit for retail therapy.  You require more retail therapy when the bill comes due!

Stormborn

louringGame of Thrones is seriously affecting my view of the world.  I saw this definition, and I think of storms, stormborn…you can guess the rest.

This is No Air Castle

luchtkasteel

 

I’m beginning to put together the logistical pieces for my graphic design firm, and in all the immense excitement, there’s a little kernel of fear too.  However, this is no castle in the air I’m building here.  The Fraud Police get no niche carved out for them.

Its early stages yet, but when I’m closer to the launch, I’ll share.  I promise.

A Hiding Place

abditory

 

 

I need a place to hide today.  I didn’t have something quite as sophisticated as an abditory in mind though.  If you want to find me, I’ll be in my pillow fort coloring.

Stories & Symbols

oriflamm

I’m a big fan of stories.  Aren’t we all? One of my classes called on us to create a symbol for a story.  We got to choose from a list of about 30 or so stories, all of which were well-known (to me at least).  As usual, my issue stemmed from having too many favorites.  I never can pick just one. I spent three days creating Mad Hatter top hats for Alice in Wonderland before realizing, they were just hats. Beautiful hats, but no one would have any idea which story I referenced when they looked at them.  Technically, I fulfilled the requirement of the assignment, but not the spirit of it.

I did the assignment again.  Yep, that’s right.  I did it again.  Now, I can’t claim my symbol is an oriflamme, but maybe the story it represents does?
