quiet in my solitude

one of those emotionally tiring days. long story short- extended fam for a visit- and it sucks the life right out of me. the sense of 'jesus, i can't wait for this day to be over' like 3 days before hand. anyhoo- this is pallas athena- and she is whoopin' some guy's butt. i don't recall his name- and it isn't really important anyway- because the picture speaks to me because of her. my blog photo here and at the sirens is pallas athena at her most demure. i thought it full of irony in choosing it- so hee hee. this picture actually depicts me in a more 'realistic' way- because i have no problem sticking up for the underdog or defending the meek against the cruel. or the stupid from themselves- as the case may be. so- that is why you are getting this rambling post instead of anything terribly meaningful. my brain got sucked dry- and i have to recharge it. so- what do i do to recharge? i read. i start over on the sidebar and i start reading other blogs for inspiration. i like to tool around with graphics and whatnot here and at the corner- or i will read because i have the chance. some good stuff out there. one of my new favorite peaceful spots- my spot over at the sirens chronicles' forum. i like the layout and the colors and all of the artwork all over the site. plus, being surrounded by all of that positive energy and strength- it's bound to rub off. so- i go over there and tool around- and it is like an oasis of sorts. i think everyone- male or female or whatever in between- should check it out.

It always helps to get your bearings back by going to where you are most comfortable.

Family tends to do that...suck out the live

I hear you betmo! My parents live in the state of Washington and I'll be going there in late September for about 6 weeks to help my father with eye surgery. He'll need a driver...my mother won't drive in the big city. They live out in the country N/E not far from Canada and close to the Idaho border. So I have to drive him back and forth to Spokane. My mother doesn't have anyone much to talk to...so guess who will be the zombie when she returns to Californy? I'll need to keep all sharp objects out of my reach. I'm an only child too...so we can farm her out either.

I go live in a tent for a few days from time to time, and it's about that time again.

I relate to the family visit thing. I always feel strip-mined if it lasts more than an hour or two.
