Who besides me has a dumb fondness for the movie Undercover Blues? I always imagine that this would be a typical vacation for River and the Doctor…especially if they took Stormageddon on holiday with them.
I absolutely love Undercover Blues and I can totally see that.

Honestly, I do work out a number of things in my writing. I think in all honesty all writers do.

Same here. It is so close and you just want to scream. Yeah, I’m right there with you.
Yes! I finally have the Citadel DLC for Mass Effect 3. That should keep me busy.
I miss Germany. I had so much fun there, as a kid and as a young adult. There was just so much about that country that I adored. If there was any one place I would want to go back to it would be there.
I thank all that is Divine for the distractions keeping me from flipping out over the Interlude Press submission. If it weren’t for all those things I would be even twitchier than I am. Here’s hoping that myself and Poppy get picked up for this.
And everyone else who entered… good luck as well. Too bad they can’t just publish das Uberbook.
I don’t write about my weight loss very much because it is a personal thing. I am just excited that I have lost 25 pounds since May and that I have lost 72 pounds since March 2012. This is a big deal for me, since I need to reach a certain BMI for surgery.
Just to be clear, I am losing weight to reach an arbitrary number set on a faulty system by a surgeon whose services I am obtaining. Also, I wasn’t happy at the weight I was at and so I took steps to change that. There is nothing wrong with being large, so long as you are healthy. I wasn’t healthy so that had to change. Healthy is the key.
So, I am excited as I just broke back into the 100s for the first time in over 9 years. I am in far better shape thanks to all the swimming I do. I feel fantastic. The swimming makes me feel so good, you just don’t know. There is no doubt that the exercise is what has made that difference. Just saying.
So take care everyone, stay healthy, and love yourself.
I left after she fell asleep because the pain of parting was less without her bright eyes watching me while I gathered my things and closed the door softly. Standing on the stoop I pulled on my boots, tightening the laces in their false sense of security. I closed my eyes and sighed, wishing I had been brave enough to face those eyes, to taste her kiss one last time before I headed off. Tears were all I was able to carry away from that. It was a heavy burden.
Hefting my bag I walked off, fighting against the urge to look back, to her. If I did I was sure I would be unable to continue on. Why did things have to come to this, me spiriting away in the dark of night, her sleeping, unaware of what has past? I don’t know but I hate it all the same.
I have heard some call it romantically wanderlust, that urge to see the sunset over a new horizon. It’s the same sun on the same horizon every time but that never seems to matter. To me it is more an addiction to movement, to variety, to different tastes, sounds, the touch of the wind, to never being held down. Love is a chain that holds us tight. For that reason I left in the night, not because love isn’t enough but because the junkie’s siren call grew deafening, the pull of vanishing miles wet on my tongue.
There is a sensual appeal to walking, the movement of the legs, the comforting weight on my feet that driving or riding hides. Miles become a casual lie without the press on the sole. There is no doubt they can take you farther faster but until foot touches pavement it seems oddly virtual, like one big game separating reality from truth. And so, now I walked.
I don’t know where this is coming from but I like it. I wanted to share as I continue wandering through this. I have to know where this goes.
Stephen King (Dark Tower Book 7: Author’s Note before revealing the ending following the climax of the story)
For all I dislike a lot of his stuff, King’s Dark Tower series is amazing and has such brilliant writing. This brought me to tears when I read it the first time. Wonderful stuff.
