Remember Me?

I have been quiet.

I have been busy with birds, books, writing, silence. Sometimes, silence is good. We need to regroup. So, enough about me…what have you been up to? What have you been reading? What have you been doing?

Did you know?

Did you know that redheads have more sex?1

Redheads are more sensitive to pain.2

And redheads need more anesthesia.3

 

There are a lot of myths about redheads. I guess that will happen with any specific grouping of people, right? We like to think in terms of groups, classification, stereotypes. I read that bees sting redheads more than other hair colors. I am not certain I believe this. Anyone know of a scientific study that supports this claim?

Red hair is a genetic mutation. A genetic mutation I am thankful for. And no, this picture is not of me but worth sharing all the same. Long live the redheads.

I could have…

I could have written this myself… I did not but, I could have. It tastes like my words but I so rarely share my poetic side…

I found this place and love it. I wrote this for you

Creative Self-Loathing

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

I think too much. Lately, more than usual and for whatever reason my thoughts are not in my favor. I am so thankful to have such a magnanimous brain and endless creative imagination but some days all of the resources of both work against me. Here, listen to a nice song while you stick around and read.

Joshua James – Lovers Without Love

I wonder if “I am sorry” means anything after you continue to do the same thing over and over and over. I know for some, it doesn’t. For people like me, well I am infinitely forgiving and tolerant. I don’t know why. I just don’t like to hold grudges or stay upset. Mostly, I forget what I was upset about in the first place. This helps. Others can recall how you gave them a dirty look in the 2nd grade and remain angry till their grave. For what it is worth, I am sorry for being flaky, for being needy, for being a pain, for not being around, for anything…for everything.

Gah.

Happy St. George’s Day!

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Well, every day we learn something new. Or we should. And today, I learned about St. George. He is the Patron Saint of England. According to legends, he was a dragon slayer and a crusader. While many do not really celebrate St. George’s Day, it is still a holiday,  April 23rd of every year. So, next year… google it, research it… go to the library even and read about it.  And then let’s see if we can celebrate it in a fun way, shall we? Where we here in the United States and Ireland celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, this is England’s equivalent. Albeit, they are less enthusiastically celebrating it these days…

Another note of interest, St. George’s Day is celebrated in Catalonia as “The Day of the Rose”. According to Wikipedia1,

…since 1436,’The Day of the Rose’ is a day where the exchange of gifts between sweethearts, loved ones and respected ones is effectuated. It would be the analogous to Valentine’s Day. Although the World Book and Copyright Day has been celebrating since 1995 internationally, the first time that books where also exchanged in ‘The Day of the Rose’ in Catalonia, was in 1926; also to commemorate the death of Cervantes and Shakespeare.

And this same day is also the UNESCO International Day of the Book and Copyright.

Sometimes, life gives us too much pain and then, out of nowhere… it gives us something to calm us down and make the struggle all worth it. Or at least bearable.
