Out of Commission
Just a little note to everyone as to my whereabouts lately.
I recently moved into a new place, sans room-mates, and the silence is deafening; I can finally hear my own thoughts again. I don't have internet as of yet, so that's why I've been missing. I'm currently using someone's spotty internet connection which is keeping me from updating my Twitter account, and I've been going crazy not being online, talking, haggling, writing, scrapping and dusting it up with people. Internet withdrawal is an interesting thing, isn't it?
But I'm hanging in there, and I hope to be back soon. The picture above is the sight-line from my balcony; nice huh? Very apocalyptic and Blade Runner-ish. I go out and look at this every night before I go to sleep. It's calming, in a strange sort of way. And although you can't see them, there are stars all over the sky, and one particular one reminds me of something Edward Abbey wrote:
...One star,bright and alone, off in the velvet purple of the south-east; words come out of nowhere; It is a strange courage you give me, lonely star.
I have to go now; Keep writing, and keep dreaming. Until we meet again...
