* My father is now blind in one eye, and has severely limited vision out of the other. He needs cataract surgery, but hasn't been cleared yet to get it done because of the current health situation. He's starting a new chemo drug next week. My mother is sick in bed with vertigo. And I'm wandering lost among the stars and milky way.

* Struggled with Idol, not because of the prompt, which I thought was GREAT, but because I couldn't focus, can't focus, can't commit to a story. And I'm still toying with non-fic which is really not something I'm comfortable with. For various reasons. So, here was the first paragraph of my non-fic piece that was, I can guarantee you, going to end in tears and with a strange and forboding dream I had....

You become an expert. At reading the lay of the land, gauging the temperature, learning the language of the natives. Your father was a navigator, your husband a cartographer. You understand directions, you are never lost, you always know true north, and you can read the map of the stars on the faces of everyone you meet.

I no longer know where the puck is going to be.

* We finished S3 of Rectify last night and I'm not sure if they thought they were going to be cancelled, but it felt like a finale. It was beautiful and wonderful and I love love love dream sequences in serialized television. I am looking forward to Season 4 but not crazy without it. I wish authors on A03 would put up season spoilers in their summaries so that I could read fic. Remember when that used to be a sacrosanct requirement??? And you would be LAMBASTED if you didn't observe it as such? Ah, well.

* Freezing freezing cold. But we are being predicted with a warm storm for the weekend. Flood warnings. I think our snow is over for a while.


This isn't an "easy" video. But Will at 2:15....makes my heart lurch.

Oh E! I am so sorry about your parents' health. How utterly heartbreaking and overwhelming. No wonder your daughter's departure was so hard for you. Hugs

I love what you were thinking of writing. I hope you do write it. I wonder sometimes if you know how extraordinaryly wonderful your words are, how moving and profound.

I have been watching Six Feet Under - almost finished. I tried to start Rectify. I want to watch it, but have been so exhausted lately I fall asleep almost as soon as I turn it on. Obviously I can't watch it in bed. (Grin)

Hugs hon.

Thank you, M. I'm trying to decide if I should talk/write about this...or just let it evolve/unevolved without trying to make sense of it all. It's beyond my ability to hold it in a state of comprehension.

*HUGS*

This time last year I was finishing up Six Feet Under. What an amazing journey that show was! I think you would enjoy Rectify.
