January 17     IN THE COMFORT OF MY ROOM   I sit and panic concerning the future.  I have come through hell, built a safe and satisfying life, but it will all end soon.  I can feel it.  The tide rises in my soul, the blood red tide of self-doubt and degradation. ...

Photos: Awesome pics of the woods and mountains of Berea, Kentucky, from its Wikipedia page.   Just a quick shout-out to a few new readers in the past month or so.  I thought it would be cool to look at the towns and cities, and their pasts and presents, of my awesome (and new) readers...

Photo: Freud's Vienna office, from forpilar.blogspot.com.   Despite being woken up more than six times by my car's alarm that inexplicably went off three times, and by my dog, who whined constantly through the night, I somehow managed to sleep deeply enough to have two very strange dreams...

We've been coping with heat.  Triple digits haven't been exceeded but our temperature walked over 99 F yesterday. Humans with luck and means are doing what needs to be done to cope.  My cats' coping is interesting.  Mostly they find a place in the morning that's comfortable and go to...

A smokey cool night slithers around my legs and coils up over my body.  The rain has stopped but drops patter on in private cadence across the inky night. I hate turning on the outside light and disturbing the night but I'm looking for the cats.  Lady has gone to bed with my wife. ...

Tonight I drove home with my mouth agape staring at the moon; trees streamed by, blocked my view as I ducked and searched–where is the moon?! A champagne moon spilled out on its side, close enough to touch. And the tree I've been admiring each night of class, in her bare beauty, was clothed in...

So, I couldn’t sleep tonight.  I tried laying in bed, but i guess my body being up over 48 hours wants to stay up 72 hours.  I don’t know why.  My boyfriend just is like, “what is wrong with you girl?”  He sounds kinda disappointed or something, I know it’s cuz he wanted me to...

She peers out the window into thenight, under the rays of the moon.From somewhere the words appear: bamboo moon.

  In the deepest part of the night I awake, reaching for you, but the bed is empty. The sheets are cold to the touch.   I hug your pillow, inhaling your faint scent. It's not enough to bring you back. The whip-poor-will calls out for his mate. I cry for you.   © annettealaine-2012...
