The Black Dog / Depression

“I wouldn’t say that I’m grateful for the black dog, but he’s been an incredible teacher”

I am NOT my depression

My depression is separate from me…

As my therapist said, in sci-fi terms, it’s like a black monstrous slug attached to my brain that’s controlling me

But if I focus on behaviours that don’t ‘feed’ that slug, then I’ll be able to gain back control

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…but I’m totally stressed


The holiday season is the busiest and most stressful time of the year for me.  My colleague Debbie and I were chatting about this the other day and all we could think is “here we go again into that ever so stressful season!”  It’s supposed to be “the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, as the Christmas song playing on the radio says.  Yet work, finances and other family or social commitments seem to bog us both down.  It got us thinking…is this time of year really that wonderful?

And Happy Birthday to Linux! https://9to5linux.com/happy-31st-birthday-linux

If only we could grasp the beauty of laziness

Apostles’, Apostate

Rights for me but not for thee
Left is true but Right for you
Freedom for brothers that aren’t the Others
Justice for us, on the same bus

Which bus are thee on, which way does it go
Which side are you on, which way do you flow
Which people are we with, which ones are we part of
Which ones are the sinners, which ones’ve departed

After leaving the State of one
After leaving, apostate become
O Destiny, O Seeker in the Dark
O Fools‘ Fate, allow me one final Spark

An Empire

An Empire of Ants

An Empire of Gorillaz
An Empire of Little Dragons
And Empire of Ants
A cosmic vibration

What does it say? It says:

An Empire of vibrations
An Empire of sands
And umpire of gorillas
T(w)oo cosmic vibration (s)

An empire state
The Empire State
An Empire State Building
An Empire State of Mind, II:

A ton of things are beautiful
Reggae is beautiful
I am beautiful
U(me)R beautiful
A Ton of Reggae is beautiful
Just as Reggaeton is beautiful
And the Prince of Reggaeton is beautiful:

What is our empire of man, except a sham?
For in the face of DraGons we are damned
If ants are meaningless to us
As mice or bees or birds are
Then we are meaningless to Drag-us
As rice or 🅱️s or turds are

Webring Umer
We Bring 🅱️umer

So beware o’ Beelzebub-B
Known to cause Cat-Ass-Trophy

Now shooting stars will be found in the holes of my jeans’ pockets:

So now we can fall freely through the rest of Time:

A Poem for Bee

Spoiler warning for all books of the Realm of the Elderlings by Robin Hobb

Dedicated to Bee

A Poem for Bee, The Destroyer


A Mourning


Not To Be


For Robin Hobb


The Naming Magic


Snapping the kNot of Chapter 39: The Vengeance (“A CatasTrophy of DraGones“)


A Song of Ice, Fire, Rain


A Conclusion
or A Memory of Blood

Not knot, knock knock
Who’s there?
Hobb’s hobby
Hobb’s hobby hoo?

Hobb’s hobby of magic naming
Of art making
Of knot breaking
Of plot-baking

Is simply unmatched
For even her peers say
That she’s “a diamond
In a sea of
~ George “Robin RHobb” Martin

Are our R R’s
The Rising Seas, Rising Earth?
Riveting Teas, Rivers of Worth?
For Silver Seas, or Rivers of Silver
In conclusion, only a Sliver

The Bee’s the one that breaks the Knot
Will naming magic be forgot?
Before the bees are all but naught
If thought is Thought, then Ice is hot

A Feather’s A Blade for just a babe
The Feather’s a Blade, a Child’s aid
A Feather to Blade, so says the Sage
A Feather ‘n Blade, A Silver, Golden Age

O Saints of Old, O Saints of Gold
Please, O Please, won’t you fold?
Please, O Please, be so bold
To Let the Golden Age of Old

Aurora Borealis / Shooting Stars

PC: Osman Amjad

Milky Way, Milky Chance, Cocoon of Grief, Cocoon of Hope
Cocoon by Chance:

U. A., M

As usual, inspired by 🅱️obin
obb, as they say

So dance for the love as the club jock plays
We don’t care what them people say

U. A, M interpreting Shawn Mendes’ Life of the Party

Kanye is Yeezus and I am 🅱️zus

U A, M

Terminal, Sermon-al
Do I make connections where there ain’t none?
Detonate, annihilate
Is the Highest Building in Clerres or Berkeley?
What’s GRRM’s tallest mountain to climb? (So far…)
For isn’t a mountain a building built by nature

What terminus
Will be built by nature’s sermon-us?
What lights lecture, which lights connect the spirits of the past with the present and the future

Tina’s version
Phil’s version

The rite of the East, the fights of the West
The lights of the North, the Lights of the south
The lights we will meet, these lights are the best
The Fight in the North, the Rights in the south

Our own lights starve out the Northern Lights
And now we’re starved for Northern Lights
O Beat of Time, won’t you let there be auroras borealis
O Clock of Dune, won’t you
Let there be 🅱️auroras 🅱️-Orealis

O Realis, O Realize
O Real-Eyes, O Re-Ill-Eyes
A Roar-rus, O Roar Raz
O Roar Us, A Roar Raz

Now that we’ve pretended airplanes’re shooting stars
We’ll pretend glare’s flames’re-Rora’s bars:

Chasing auroras, chasing cars
We be chasin, till I drop bars:

I’m runnning away now, from Northern Lights
I runaway now from, North to South
Run-Uh-Way with, Runaway with me from North, to Southern Lights

And run back from Suthern to Nuthern Lights

Green lights, purple lights,
Green drugs, purple psychedelics
Green haze, purple haze
Green rain, purple rain

Now Destiny’s, blessed-in-me,
Cuz purple’s purpose’s becoming green for me

All i want after this
Is all I want after

All I want,
After waiting such a long time to see shooting stars

Oh, it’s like inception now
Waking up from dreams again and again
When will it ever enddd
When will the week-end

Now for no reason,
Most of
(Everything I’ll do)
I’ll do it for you, Aurora’s Shooting Stars

Hope you don’t get too lost
In the hyperlinks
For then you’ll face a high cost
Struck by hya-per Links
Hope you don’t die
Struck but not burst
Sung but not thirst?:

Dune, Flume
Mind-Killer, Mein killer

A tapestry of blue will be found
So a maphist’ry of you will be found
Just as,
A valance of purples ‘n greens will be found
So that a balance of purpose serenes will be found
