Oh hello,   just wanted to be the 100th post and tell you all I am still awake at 3 in the morning and doubt I will sleep.  I am looking at albums and thinking about Willow and our great times together.  I also wanted to cover my bases for those worried about me, and calling here, I am actually okay now, honest.  Save your money, but I do thank you for caring. I was playing catch-up with friends from here all day on the phone.  That wonderful Kit fixed me up LOL.  I am dealing with this anniversary date of loosing the best friend any person could ever be blessed with in a lifetime, pretty well actually.  I sure miss her though, big time.  

As for Karen and I doing stand-up, I swear I am going to start turning our conversations on yahoo into a routine to sell!      

Watch for Tuesday's report of a "mud" slide and I hear via the grapevine there was a warning out about a severe flood. Good grief!

Well now, surprise surprise me...if my photographic efforts are going to be put to good use, then I have to say, that I know for fact one, everything is going to turn out all right, as I, myself, with a little magic up my sleeve and the ability to see into the future of two lovely behinds, can say, with all due respect to the doctors, and their abilities, that everything is going to turn out just fine, and I expect a "smooth report" from both of our ladies...

for I have the preview of how the scopes will view the "post-op" scene...

Hello ladies...
I've been away, and will be away again, soon. But wrote this (a true story) while I was out. You all seem to me that you're the type to hold the world on your shoulders... so I wanted to give this to you.   all of you, hang in there.
Here goes...


He seemed to have a way with being down on himself. I guess others had a way of being down on him, too. He held the world, though. The weight of it pressed onto his shoulders and sank there in his warm flesh. He worried too much, but I guess the world does that to people…

“I don’t understand.” His eyes pulled into mine and I could almost see them reaching out, looking for whatever comfort my own eyes might bring. “They always say when you talk about things, the burden lessens.”

I watched him as he paused. His eyes left mine and turned down, helpless… hopeless. He swallowed, and I bit my lip trying to fight the tears that were already waiting to fall.

“So, why isn’t it any lighter? Why does it still hurt this much?”

I don’t think he expected an answer, and I sure as Hell didn’t know what to say. His life was worse then mine, his pain was greater, and he was stronger; so much stronger. Something in me still had some sense in it, though, so I started to speak.

“It works like this when the world is on your shoulders.” My voice was methodical but weak. Still unsure of what to say, I went on. “You can hold someone on both shoulders, and hold something in both hands… But when you take the things in your hands and give them to the people on your shoulders, you still hold the weight.”

We both stopped then, and we cried together. It made sense. If you hold everything, you can get rid of nothing.



Poems are made by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.

Wow, Kari! Is that crystal?

hmmm....

perhaps I should change my name to suit my anus? giggle

crystal infinity...

Hmm.

I LIKE that!

* * *

and WELCOME GG!!!

a beautiful story, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I was particularly struck by this:

"“I don’t understand.” His eyes pulled into mine and I could almost see them reaching out, looking for whatever comfort my own eyes might bring. “They always say when you talk about things, the burden lessens.”

yes, sometimes when I talk about things, or write about them, I relive them. Well not sometimes, ALL of the time.

So actually, there ARE somethings "I'll never tell..."

I have a darker journal out there on the world wide web, buried pretty deep under a pseudo-pseudonym.

There ARE some thing I won't reveal.

Like (Susan) the fact that I hurt myself because I was lifting things without bending my knees. You see, I have bad knees. The part I won't tell is how they got "bad".



Thanks again, GG and please come back. You write beautifully m'friend.

and thanks jo, for keeping me company during my odd hours last night--er, this morning.

sigh.

Hugs all.

Ta for now!

Nah, sweetie...that is a negative of my cavern trip...but it looks like crystal.  In real time, it has all of the edifice of bloodlines running through rock...hmmmm....

GG...so glad you found your way here, m'dear...so very very glad....

Susan? You're HOME...we DID leave bread crumbs, you know...

To all of the ladies and gentlemen who make Passions - Passions....

I'm going to be quite busy in the next few months, for I have a new mission.  Oh, I'm sure I'll be in here, but I all need you to say a little "anything" for me...

Subject:  Perseverance ... I need your thoughts on keeping me on line to get this novel done.  Too many of you have given me the green light.

Too many of you are anxious to see me get this done.

I've procrastinated enough.  Anytime you see me doing any more of that?  Bite me!  [And, with the subject matter already set above, you know exactly WHERE....]

Keep in mind that I am laughing with you, not at you, Kari.

But lemmmeeeeeeeee seeeeeeeee, you want me to help you to stop procrastinating?

MOI?

maybe later.





But seriously, good luck. Maybe Ron has some thoughts on this? Because I actually got interested in computers because I was going to do some online research to write my novel.(That was my excuse to buy the first computer, anyhow.)

Then I stumbled into Pip. And ya'll have been sufferin' ever since...

Well, I've been thinking, and I'm not sure if the way I have it figured helps you, but maybe you can help me, and that might help you help yourself in the process. (hey, sometimes it happens that way)

My main problem is that I am "interactive."

Yep.

I do "play" off of other people. Laussy, get me together with the two sharons and we're like Sally, Buddy, & Rob from the Dick Van Dyke show. Now that's great if you can get us all a job writing for television. (I've been watching that thang again and it sure looks like anybody could write that garbage, anyhow.)

But "the novel"...I can only get so far before I get frustrated and hit delete delete delete in disgust because I think it's stale.


I NEED THE FEEDBACK. Reading comments & such (praise is lovely but it's not what I am talking about here). When I read others comments on my work it helps me to look at it through someone else's eyes. And even if they won't critique, just the process of me looking at it through their eyes is likely to prompt me to an edit. It lends perspective to the entire thing. And then there's just the inspiration. Give me the ball and I'll score a touchdown just because I like to do the victory dance under the uprights. (I am the most extroverted introvert you'll ever meet.)

And then? I tend to get bored easily, so the process of a novel is so lengthy--it actually just exhausts me. I just tend to give up. My mind is so scattered.

sigh.

No frigging focus.



So last year I thought I'd try writing vignettes and then marrying them together to form a hopefully cohesive story. I confess I just couldn't get the thing to "weave" to my satisfaction.

So here I am.

Writing HERE, while the characters I only sketched lightly are tugging at me in my head, sometimes screaming, "Hey--what about me? You can't just leave me like this!"

It's driving me nuts I tell ya.

and yawp.

Short trip.



Lawd-send-me-an-editor. And then gawd help me, stop me from killing them when they do their job.

Now.

I've gone and given myself a headache.

Maybe I'll try some tv...

what's this?

TCM is running Marlon all night!

gleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

"The Wild One"

and oh...here is something interesting too.

"Banned from The Bible" on the History Channel.

sigh.

(and no TIVO or VCR right now )

Did I mention that I have a problem with decision making as well as organization?

Oh well. There's always the "flash" button the remote.

Me and my butt are going to go guard the couch.

Later Sweet P'taters!

Geesh, and I thought that photo was of an oyster on the half shell.


It's really cool though Karilea.

I'm sorta bummed - ooops! sorry...I am sorta down in the dumps as today we went to a reception of sorts for my hubby's niece and her new husband. Oh, the reception was fun, good food, live blues band and those "stomp performers" who are amazing. Anyway, I was almost late as it took me forever to find something to wear. Sometime between last summer and now, my body has reshaped itself. No kidding! I was always pear-shaped....but man...this is RIDICULOUS!!! By the time I found something to wear to this function, I was all sweaty and my eye makeup had smeared clown-like on my face. sigh. Then, once the food was served buffet style, I was so hungry and tired of watching young, thin girls flitting here and there wearing just enough material to make a blindfold for my husband, that I forgot my innards problem (yes I have a medical condition there 'bouts too girls)and piled creamy potatoe salad on my plate! And a hot dog!!!! Thank goodness less than a half an hour later, my husband whispered that he wanted to leave. My shorts now felt like they were gonna rip off of me and my tummy was grumbling a soon to be Indian smoke signal.   Now that I have had my hot bath and put on my loose baby dolls (ewww baby) and found peace in Ser's garden, I think I'll have a snack. LOL.
Love you guys! Chrislane

I'm home!

Wow. I just read everything I missed in one sitting. Now my butt hurts.

Oh well, it's not like I'm going anywhere. I'm talking to someone special.

I love how being happy feels strange. I'll never get used to it.

Don't worry, the world will probably crash again in a few days. I weathered a crisis yesterday - barely.

Being good is hard. I love the feeling of accomplishment (I only ever get that when I'm motivated by other people - otherwise I don't try), but it's so hard. I don't know why I bother... well, never mind, yes I do.

If you got anything out of that, my hat is off to you. Maybe I'll come back later and tell some stories. For now I'm just trying to sort out my head.

I missed you all.

Kielo -- welcome back!  You had a lot of catching up to do because you were way beHIND......HEHEHE

Karen -- I am so impressed with your writing I think you should take over were Irma Bombeck left off -- seriously.  Just writing your little everyday stories....and questions.....you light up so many folks' faces.  (PS....you're welcome....interesting chatter, yes.  Basically, though, you must understand this about me....I've basically full of BS most days ('specially nights) so don't take anything I say as gospel...I'm always learning something new.  BTW, that special on the history channel, I'm watching the replay at 1 am so I'll probably be in an out of PIP tonight/this morning.)

*hugs* to all.

*laughing*

I'm watching it again now...maybe I can stay awake this time.

I'm full of BS and codeine, and I kept falling asleep during the earlier broadcast!

and I love the The Life of Adam & Eve--The Book of Enoch.

hmmm. I'll bet I have that somewhere in my brother's library too.

But one thing about insomnia, BS, & Pip?

I meet the NICEST people this way!

hugs jo

and yep I'm saying "goodnight gracie!"

(I think)

And I came back in to edit to thank you for the yummy compliments--I swear I have a problem about that--grumbling and shaking my head--I know I must appear to be ungrateful at times, but it's like I just gloss right over it, so thank, k?

sheesh.

NOW--grin, g'nite gracie!

OH.

I'm sneaking back in to tell Chrislane that if she likes creamy potato salad--my sister, "twist" makes the best in the world.

She keeps it pretty simple too--she leaves out alot of the annoying "salad" part.

and oooh...now the Gnostic viewpoint of Mary Magdalene!

mindmunch time!

munch munch munch

(This is the part I missed.)

Yup I too want to see Eva's recipe for potatoe salad.  I am about to put down about 45 lbs. of dill pickles,and one of my recipes calls for chopped dill pickles in it.  Now there is a great idea, recipe exchanges.  Maybe a Passions Cookbook?

Well day 1 of my young "uninvited guest" went well but I think I tired her out.  She jumped up into my feather bed on the way back from a pit stop, and stayed there.  I went to see if she fell down the drain, and laughed when I saw her there sound asleep. That will teach her to want to play hopskotch with me, I was always good at that game.  Hah, wait until she sees her old Gramma with that hula hoop she brought. I guess I get the blow-up bed or the couch, as only a fool would share sleeping room with that one.  I would wake up all bruised from her trashing around.

Serenity, quit hitting “delete”.  Pretend that button isn’t there.  How in the world can you get feedback if you think it’s “stale”, feed it to the birds, and they fly off with it?  You’ve got to leave it up and on screen or on paper long enough for your editor [raising hand] to see it.  See?

Praise IS lovely – but who needs praise when we need honest reaction?  BUT WHEN YOU GET HONEST REACTION and it is GOOD….you cannot hit delete then, either.  You take it to yet a higher “power”, someone you would read 24/7 if given half the chance.  On my lunch hours I’ve been indulging in “Mr. Clemens and Mark Twain, a Biography” and wish he’d come back long enough to tell me where I’m going wrong.  [Chuckling…I think I know what he’d say…but that will be for a second book…]

“(I am the most extroverted introvert you'll ever meet.)”  Quit stealing my lines….or at least give me credit.  

“So last year I thought I'd try writing vignettes and then marrying them together to form a hopefully cohesive story. I confess I just couldn't get the thing to "weave" to my satisfaction.”  Honey…that’s basically how this novel started out, remember?  Maybe you don’t, but Mysteria does.  It was a little story…attached to a little story [just happened to have the same theme…] and it just GREW…  Rather like your journal has done.  Have you copied all of your posts on these two threads of journalism and jam them into word, just to see how many pages you’ve managed to write?  Geez….

So…as P.S. would say to F.F. – You know what you have to do…

~*~

Chrislane…if and when your tummy can handle it, write me, and I’ll send you a red potato recipe that you AND your hubby will love.  And quit fretting about those cute young things…you see, they’re going to reach YOUR age someday…it’s all fleeting….

~*~

Welcome home Kielo!

~*~

Serenity – What Iliana said…About Erma….

~*~

Iliana?  You have Mail…

~*~

Mysteria, your little grand one looks much like mine when it comes to taking over the bed.  And my gosh, from that photo, she looks like she’s grown a LOT….

Hugs all.  Off to see the new grandson today with friends, so that’s a trip to Hays [think of “Dances with Wolves”, and you’ve got the fort scenery of where we’re headed…]  So since it’s 6:00 a.m., I’ve got one hour to go through two chapters of re-write, one hour to get myself ready, and one hour to do piddly “stuff” around the house….

~*~

And yes, Serenity…one meets the Nicest People in your lovely garden…

Loved your report, Sharon.
And, Karen, I would love to hear yours and Mysteria's stand-up...or sit-down either one. Ya'll are two crazy ladies...but in a good "crazy" way.....and, ya'll are oh so lovable.

And, everybody else, hey, too.

Good to see you back Susan. Hope you had a good time.

Karilea, will be looking forward to the novel....and yours too, Karen...or whatever you decide to publish.

Liked your story, Alyssa. You are a good writer, too.

Chrislane, I've got a good potatoe salad recipe, too. That's a good idea, Sharon, about exchanging recipes. I love pickles of any kind, too. I used to can jars and jars of pickles, until I found out how much easier on my back it was to buy them. LOL Those that I canned sure were good though, especially the bread and butter ones and the red cinammon rings. The cinnamon ones taste like those red apple rings that you buy in the jar, only better. By the way, I love my cooking. If ya'll could see me you could tell. Now, my Mom is the one that can cook...and loves new recipes. She's always trying something new. Goodness, I'm getting hungry. Haven't eaten anything today yet.

Well, I'll see ya'll later. I've gotta go to get me something to eat. HeeHee!! Have a good day everybody.

Heart hugs.....

Thanks all of you for offering your surely mouthwatering potatoe salad recipes .... but it's not that I can't make one .... I can make a great potatoe salad as a matter of fact, just can't eat them anymore. Or anything with a creamy dressing !!  
Or onions, or red meats....blah blah blah. Yesterday I just forgot the rules and pigged out. Payin' for it today. Probably because I topped the night off with a Caramel Caribou icecream cone! Those darn antlered beasts sure can give ya a kick! Later gators!

Well see? Kari, that is all well and good, but your advice REEKS of DISCLIPINE. ("Kiss me first", yanno?)

I know, I know, I'm just self-indulgent, spoiled, lazy...none of these qualitites translate to "self-starter" either.

Another project that I'd toyed with was more of a journalistic slant. Having grown up here in New Orleans (am much as anyone in New Orleans CAN grow up) I've made friends with some unusual people of semi-fame status.
Frankie Ford, Clarence "Frogman" Henry, Irma Thomas, and Fats Domino. Sorta friends anyhow, but I'm welcome in their homes and enjoy a certain familiarity that the average person wouldn't. So I thought about the old writing advice "write what you know" and decided to give it a shot.

I told myself, "Karen, you know shorthand, own a mini recorder, have a digital cam and access, what more do you need?"

The first problem I enountered was that these folks are so accessible, that they've been interviewed ALOT. And if something bores me, it's poison. So I thought I'd just try it and see if I could accidently run into a new angle and hopefully a concurrent theme more interesting than the fact that they are all New Orleans icons.

k. I talked myself outta THAT problem.

Second? Journalism is a whole nutter type of writing. It's WORK. Quotes, citing sources and weaving facts with interest and humor is really tough. I gained new respect for reporters as I sorted through bio's. Not to mention one needs to be aware of the technicalities of the English language.

k. I know how to use a semi-colon. I took business English and some intro writing course in college. If all else fails, I can look it up, right? so I talked myself out of that roadblock too.

Then? I realized that I didn't have as much access as I thought. WE have access--meaning my husband and I. So I talked to him about it, and he said sure. But then, we just never got around to doing it. It just kept being put off. (I don't think he was comfortable with the idea of ME talking to HIS people.)

Then all this other stuff started happening. His illness, my illness, rennovations, etc.

But I have my notes packed in a bookbag, everything ready to go--should I get the opportunity to try that one again. But I swear, if he's not sick then I am...

sigh.

I've also been admiring Ron's "Martin & Martha" thread--thinking that I wouldn't mind doing that sort of thing too.

Hugs all.
