The curious case of the tweet in the night


First let me come clean,  I am on twitter. When I first thought of my ripped of title I thought people might think I was talking about twitter. Then I remembered no one really reads this that expects a message that would wake you and require an update so yeah it was a sound. Not quite a tweet more like a bird like grumble and scratching woke me up. The sound was coming from my stove,above my stove in the vent. I listed quietly as what I assume is a small bird not very happy with the confined space made room for babies. I was sure of this as a piece of wheat fluttered down to my range top.  How did they get in? The sun was slow to rise but when it did I saw the hood is not screened outside. Now what…I know the rit thing to do. Let the babies grow and leave the nest,eat out till the process is complete. Or I could ignore the grumblings make breakfast and wait for eggs to drop. I have decided to let nature take its natural course. I have also decided to use the oven and the far left burner with caution until the nest is empty. Also not to post again until my computer is fixed. This iPad is not quite rit and I cannot figure out how to edit my bad spelling and grammar on it. Spring has sprung.

Prompt 2 – write a monologue in which a regret is revealed

I love the new wallpaper. I think the robins egg blue brings out my eyes don’t you? I love blue, it has so many different emotions.  What you don’t think color has emotions? Oh my bad, yea I did say that wrong, color is inanimate it cannot feel What I mean to say is color evokes many emotions, especially blue. Restatement… best advice I ever got, thanks doc , that 180 an hour has paid off. I can express myself and my needs perfectly and now I need more blue in my life. Such a stupid language English, blue is joyful not depressingly sad blue is springtime. I had to leave you know, he did not understand my needs that I quite eloquently expressed. I do not often even think of him. Only when I need to get something off a shelf perhaps. My needs are simple someone that listens without judgement.  This includes you, so just wipe that smug look off your face. I think a good listener and perhaps a nice bowl of salted caramel ice cream. Oh and sex, yeah I miss the sex. He was very good at that and actually a good listener with his pants off. He was also a great cook, I do miss his spaghetti. Ok new list, I need great spaghetti, salted caramel ice cream and …what time is it? I think I may have jumped into this place too soon. I wonder if he is home from work yet. I have never done a booty call do you have any suggestions?

2013 get the f*** outta here

2013 kinda sucked….can I get an amen. I was told this was the year of the snake and I have to agree. Snakes in our culture represent and bring up many negatives; sneaky, scary,hurt, evil,unnatural,fear. Now I am not talking about those of us who embrace these creatures just the less enlightened like myself, those who craps themselves when they almost step on one.
2013 was for me the year of the snake. I had very high highs and very low lows that taught me valuable lessons.
The number one lesson is I am loved, not in that luv ya way but in that lay on top of your body until the bullets stop whizzing over your head way. I have apologized to all those bullet ridden individuals that have proven they can take the heat and still love me. Apologies do not seem like enough but will have to do. I think they know I would do the same for them but pray for their sake I never have to.
So fuck ya 2013, You brought your best slithering fang bearing self to my world and with the help of my family and friends were crushed or at least captured and thrown out of our lives.

On to 2014, New Year’s resolutions have never been my thing but I will try a few this year just because it is a new concept in this house to alter our habits based on a calendar.
Stop smoking….I have tried unsuccessfully 8 times but this year we are going to slowly cut down 10 percent a month to be exact. I will let you know how that goes.
Be Kind……really kind, not game show shit, mean it. No talking trash, no evil thoughts , trying to be proactive in kindness. This is easy with strangers, harder with people you like and damn near impossible with those you do not. I think if I make a concentrated effort to think before I speak this might be attainable.
Lose weight….whatever, no quick weight loss for me. It has taken me a year to grow this ass and I am sure it will take at least a year to lose it. I will continue to touch and tap my toes the only difference is I will say no after 8 pm to anything tasty and perhaps eat something green. I will let you know how this goes as well.

So there you have it fat smoking mean girl seeking redemption in 2014. Did 2013 treat you well? What is your 2014 plan?

I lost a friend today. 

In a most unusual way.

His friendship I never pursued.

It was one I assumed would be renewed

His smile was kind and always around

Now that smile will no longer be found

He was my age, with a happy family

Young kids, a wife and a home where we would all care to be

I will miss him, this friend I never really knew

Never took the time because the hours seemed few

The hurried pace I always had never stopping long enough

To have that cup of coffee or lunch seemed too abrupt

Take the time to treasure all those people in your life

The ones who make you smile and bring a little spice

Because it is true what the philosophers tell us

Carpe Diem my friend, what we had must be enough

Being Sane

I think too much emphasis is placed on being Sane. How many of us can claim we have never had that moment when we questioned our sanity? After being on this journey for many months, I can say I appreciate being able to distinguish the difference between reality and fantasy.  I will admit I do miss the grandiose. Feeling like nothing can stop you from writing the next great novel or producing art that will make a difference. Changing the world at your fingertips is a great feeling. This new reality is slower more cognoscenti of my limitations. I am aware that I may never write that great novel or produce a perfect play but I will continue to write and draw and dream. My beautiful family has helped me reach this reality filled with love and understanding and I could not have done it without them.
