Eccentric and Bent

Come on a fantastic voyage in the backwaters of my mind.

Monthly Archives: March 2013


thoughts flitting through my mind 
like dragonflies
skimming over the surface
of what’s underneath
If I get to close 
will I drown
bog down
’cause my wings are wet
just hovering
making me nervous
I can see
into the depths
not into the unknown
here and back
there and here
around and around
just skimming the surface
I could dive
but I am scared
of what’s underneath

So I had pledged to post at least once a week but then life decided to show its sense of humor.  I wanted to tell you all about the Sunday we spent flying kites.  I wanted to tell you all about the jewelry order I had to prepare and send out.  I wanted to share the elation of getting my Tahoe road ready again. But then my phone ran away from home.  For a full week I had to suffer the withdrawals of not being connected to the internet.  I had to worry about whether I had too much personal info stored in my phone.  I had to bemoan the loss of pictures and videos from November until now.  I also had to bemoan the loss of my monthly cycle info from the last 3 years.  I had to remember my log in info so that I could change everything just in case some nefarious soul decided to write a blog post while pretending to be me. I realized just how important my phone was as a digital organizer even if I hate to use it for talking.  I know that this probably doesn’t matter a hill of beans to you all but let my story be a warning to you.  Back up all of your information immediately.  Don’t store passwords, credit card info or other identifiers in your phone because you never know when your phone will decide to hit the road for adventure and love.
