19th-Aug-2015 10:54 pm - 1,168 - Lyrics for Life pt2
In May of 2015 I found myself at a bardic competition at a SCA event. A gentleman that I've know for a few years stood up and sung a song he had written. While the verse was pleasant enough the chorus brought tears to my eyes.

One for the courage that's buried inside you.
Two for the truth you conceal in the fold.
Three for the love that you've always denied you.
Now go seek, be bold, never rest 'til you find your hidden gold.


It's taken me all the time to puzzle out but I finally have realized why the words struck me so.

One for the courage that's buried inside you.
I lived the first 30 years of my life in the same county. I didn't go to collage (I started a business instead) and had never lived away from my family for more then two weeks. When the chance came to go first to New Hampshire and then Texas, followed by the other place in Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Kansas, I was scared yet I knew that whatever I faced would be worth it because I would be a midwife at the end. I had never in my wildest dreamed that I would spend a year just traveling the country.

Two for the truth you conceal in the fold.
My time in Utah was... like going out of the frying pan and into the fire.

I don't know if the preceptor had some kind of chemical imbalance or if she was just a bitch but during my time with her I learned exactly the kind of midwife I wanted to be - which was the total opposite of everything she was.

Three for the love that you've always denied you.
And this was the line that really caused me to cry.

All my life I've had trouble drawing close to people - I have acquaintances and people that I know but true friends I could count on one hand and still have fingers left over.

Now go seek, be bold, never rest 'til you find your hidden gold.
Now despite everything I've gone through and the qualities I may need to work on I know that I have worth. That inside of me is a brilliant light that's wanting to shine.

St Berry Hello
Another year of "Scrooge" has come and gone.




I also attended the Highrafter's Yule party last night. I drink a cup of something called Voodoo Juice (which was rum, rum, rum, pineapple juice, and rum) which got me to a point I called happy but Thorn called, "Holy crap! Naomi's actually drunk!!!".

Towards the end on the night I was trying to skirt around a group of people and ended up stubbing my toe on the hearth stone; it hurt like hell at the time but I didn't think to much about it. This morning I took off my sock and there was blood everywhere. I guess I split my toenail ::shrug::

Firstly, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ERIN!!!!! (I'm a horrible friend and totally forgot - even with the LJ reminder e-mails)

My life:
- I'm doing Scrooge again this year and it's been really odd. Not the show, but me; I've been really nostalgic for past years/cast mates.

- On the knitting front, I made myself a shawl! It was based on a pattern for a baby shawl that I had to size up and at one point I ended up ripping out the whole thing and starting over - gah! But it's done now and I'll post pictures soon.

- Since knitting = mindless tv watching, I've gone through season 9 of Smallville, season 1 of Atlantis, and am currently on episode 4x05 Community (yes, I started with ep 1x01).

- Writing/creative stuff. I'm taking part in a Shakespeare Advent challenge and I've actually been keeping up with it fairly well. So far I've written 5 one shots, made 3 photo type things and 3 - count 'em, 3 - gifs!!!

The was a West Wing post that popped up on my Tumblr yesterday; pictures of Josh and Toby from "20 Hours in America" with the caption, "300 IQ points between them and they can’t find their way home. I swear to God, if Donna wasn’t there, they’d have to buy a house."

Then it hit me.

Paige is to Scorpion what Donna was to The West Wing.

I mean, I don't need an other reason to love Paige, but now seeing the character connections to Donna my love for her has grown.

15th-Oct-2014 11:20 am - 1,133 - Restart Level?
It's not even noon and so far today has been total shit.

I woke up just fine but as I walked through the kitchen to turn on the kettle my foot hit wet spot and slid a bit, just enough to wrench my knee.

The wetness? Cat puke.

Turned on my laptop and logged into e-mail to find a notice from PayPal that my payment didn't go through due to insufficient funds. I pulled up my bank account to find out what was going on. Even though I had 27 plus in my checking I somehow had -25 in my savings; so had to try to get that all straightened out with the credit union. It did get taken care of, and the money refunded, but my day has had pretty much all the joy sucked out of it.

I wish I could just go back to bed and restart the day.

This isn't a huge problem, there are tons of shawl patterns on Ravlery.

The problem is: there are tons of shawl patterns on Ravlery!

I have it narrowed down to two.

A while back I talked about the "weeds" that grow outside my bedroom windows; well I got off my butt and managed to ID a few of them, the main one being Goldenrod.



It turns out that goldenrod has several medicinal properties so I decided to harvest some.





Use: One or two large handfuls of crushed leaves and flowers, steeped in a quart of boiling water for thirty minutes makes a tea that can be used hot, with honey, to counter allergies (especially pollen allergies), fevers, sore throats, coughs, colds and the flu; or taken cold to relieve colic in babies, and gas in adults.

I've been on a real book crazy lately - averaging a book a day for the last few weeks!

Maybe it's to distract from the fact that my life is starting to stagnate again. Blah...

I switched laptops last year and moved most of my files onto the new one, and with all the stress of bad work situations I didn't have time to do anything with graphics so it's just now that I realized that none of my screencaps, textures, ect got moved.

Does anyone on my f-list have screencaps from the "Alice" mini?
