The weather was ghastly. They were climbing the walls. “A game!” she cried, under duress. Eager-eyed, they hovered and clamored, “What game, what’s the best?” Frantically thinking, she babbled, “That game…that game…you know…the one where you get to guess.” #mbnov
“Wherefore,” said the werewolf, ruefully examining his pelt, “this wear and tear? I wonder where I went last night.” #mbnov
In 1977, age eleven, I was taken to see the first Star Wars movie to come out in theaters (now called Episode 4). Fell passionately in love with that world and spent many happy years with my sibs and friends creating new stories, planets, costumes and so much more…so…May the Force Be With You. #mbnov
So many things positive things bind us personally (family, place, stories), but also as part of a greater network across time, places and common human experiences. The theme of woven threads and webs recurs in many mythologies. In a world of complex but not obvious systems that is comforting. So often, we don’t see the invisible threads until something breaks (ecosystems, supply chains) then we are delightfully surprised by mirror neurons and quantum entanglement. For me there is something joyful in the awareness that we are threaded together in a shining web, and hopeful, too, that the invisible threads will be a bit more visible from now on.
I couldn’t keep it to 280 characters!
It’s late…the day flew by without a way for me find a way to use inflate in a way that I can creatively relate. Peaceful and happy sundown to you all! #mbnov
Near to hand is nature, simple physical tasks, distraction from waiting, anxiety. Fatally, also near to hand is the ‘Net. ‘Just a quick check’. #mbnov
It will astonish me if we have election results by bedtime. Trying not to stress or doomscroll. Failing. #mbnov
Concentrate. Spiralling into concentric circles, distilled into essence, while the wild wings of distraction flutter on the edge and and the dragonflies of diversion dart in, tempting, leading me down their wobbly path. #mbnov
