been on vacation

So, I haven't been around online lately... I know, that is what happens when I'm not at work. hehehe, ohhh internet and work go hand in hand...

Xmas in the end this year was less stressfull than the previous three or so. I like that. It went by rather quick and painless.

Anyway. I'm still on Vacation! woo... and a lot of people have been visiting so I haven't been writing as much as I'd like, but that is okay, I feel great with what I have accomplished so far.

the sad, and not so sad, part is that I'm looking ahead. I slowly piece projects together well in advance of actually starting them. This next project is going to be a joy, I hope. I'm pulling from the mind of Hayao Miyazaki and what I feel is right for my next story. Oddly enough, its not based off a dream... so lets see how this goes.

anyway. the basic idea is "Everything I ever needed to know I learned/knew as a child." So, characters will have to use concepts like hiding under bed sheets for protection, using night lights to stay out of darkness, holding their breath while going past graveyards, etc... anything that you could think of that is now considered childish or illogical... so, if you have anything or can think of any... drop me a line to help out! I'll earmark and give you credit somehow if anything becomes of it in the end.

As for my current story I'm writing. I honestly don't know how it will turn out. I'm going to have to run it through a bunch of readings to make sure its right before I actually do anything with it. Right now, I feel good about it. Its not fully historically accurate, but that is just part of the fun of storyteling.



may I also just add one more thing before I call this post ended.... I love the night... when its dark and quiet... its like I have a little slice of the world to myself. It seems more scarce now than ever... I remember when I had all the time in the world to myself to sink in and really take advantage of it... now... not so much... it feels so peaceful... and relaxing.

I wish I could have full days like this... I think my personal life would be a little brighter... not that I'm in a terrible place, but I have my own problems that are my own thing that I don't care to include others with. Right now... Its almost like being on stage... I have no worries right now. No sadness. No worries. No thinking of what will happen tomorrow or next week or next month... I'm here and I love right now. I guess I got so used to the dark in the military working swing and night shifts for years... and now working in a room with no windows and very few lights on...

I do miss driving at night down California highways. That was a slice of beauty for me out there. Looking over the sprawing cities with all their lights from street lamps and signs, as I sped by... the world is a beautiful place, too bad we don't see the beautiful stuff until we don't have it anymore. so damn difficult to understand our emotions sometimes until its too late.

Okay, good night you princes of persia... you princessess of prada... errrr... whatever. I'M OUT!

childhood safeties
When I was little, someone told me that if you have any limbs hanging over the edge of the bed at night a creepy creature will reach out from under your bed and grab you. I haven't been able to sleep with so much as a finger dangling over the edge of the bed since.
