you have no idea. you think you know me & you don’t. i tried to warn you.

there’s maybe one person out there who knows my face. so don’t look at me & assume you know what i’m thinking. if you want to know you’re going to have to ask & i can’t promise you’ll like it. i can’t promise i’ll care if you like it or not.

…i always remind people of…

Posted by sailorstakewarning on September 26, 2010

everyone has a thing. some way to express what they need to express so desperately; we all need to or we’ll implode in some quiet fashion before anyone even knows what’s happened. everyone has their thing. for some it’s art, others it’s music. some love writing, reading, sports. etc.

what i don’t understand is the knee-jerk reflex to reject anyone who tries to talk to me in my own language. you’re trying to use it to get to me, get through to me & i don’t know why but it makes the walls go up quicker than they would had you just said what you clearly want to say. i don’t mean it; i can’t seem to help it. i don’t know how to tell you how to get in. i just assume doors or windows or whatever will open when they do. still;

i’d be happy to die for a taste of what angel had,

“But you are innocent and true, and you come from a star…”

Posted by sailorstakewarning on September 20, 2010

“Goodbye,” he said to the flower.

But she made no answer.

“Goodbye,” he said again.

The flower coughed. But it was not because she had a cold.

“I have been silly,” she said to him, at last. “I ask your forgiveness. Try to be happy…”

He was surprised by this absence of reproaches. He stood there all bewildered, the glass globe held arrested in mid-air. He did not understand this quiet sweetness.

“Of course I love you,” the flower said to him. “It is my fault that you have not known it all the while. That is of no importance. But you — you have been just as foolish as I. Try to be happy… Let the glass globe be. I don’t want it any more.”

“But the wind — “

“My cold is not so bad as all that… The cool night air will do me good. I am a flower.”

“But the animals — “

“Well, I must endure the presence of two or three caterpillars if I wish to become acquainted with the butterflies. It seems that they are very beautiful. And if not the butterflies — and the caterpillars — who will call upon me? You will be far away… As for the large animals — I am not at all afraid of any of them. I have my claws.”

And, naïvely, she showed her four thorns. Then she added:

“Don’t linger like this. You have decided to go away. Now go!”

For she did not want him to see her crying. She was such a proud flower.”

i’m henndigoing. i miss being a redhead. bye bye, brunette. it was nice knowing you for a little while. too bad you’re not me.

signal ridge, mt carrigan nh

(you can see the fire tower to the left of the photo, which is the summit)

signal ridge, mt carrigan – almost to the top!

signal ridge, mt carrigan summit – this is the view from the tower at the top – the view was actually 360 degrees of all mountains

what an awesome feeling to make to the top – i was way out of shape & wheezed all the way up but i wasn’t about to let the mountain win. my legs shook all the way down & my knees are creaky today but all i can think about is what it looked like from beginning of the trail to the summit & wish i could be back up there to see it again. there are days when i am so twitchy for something, anything, that i don’t know what i could possibly do to feel better. yesterday i felt better. it was exactly what i needed, as slow as i was to make it up all the way. (missed the sunrise on the top but i saw it from the ridgeline)
