🥰 bonded for life

Genetics 🧬 amaze me. We ran into B’s cousin at dinner just now. They reconnected and talked about how things have been since the company closure. An immediate kinship. Everything’s the same. Speech patterns, mannerisms, the whole nine yards. When he was leaving, he told B “take care kiddo”. Makes my heart happy. It’s like when I hear Pony’s voice and see D.

As always more to come.

For the Love of Reading

Yep, I had a break for a bit but now I have two books going and more in the TBR queue.  I would not have started the second book had it not been for opportunity to obtain the book early through a new online venue known as overdrive.  I committed to back to basics with honest to god “real” books from the library but the allure of not having to wait drew me in to reconsider my online book ban. Damn you Kindle app on iPad much more user friendly than the Kindle itself.

Here are two short and sweet snippets and then full on reviews to follow.

The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner -the opposite of a whodunit.  We know from the beginning as the central character is starting the rest of her life behind bars.   Too early to predict where this leads.  So far keeping my interest.

The Outsider by Stephen King – So far this is a gritty real life whodunit.  Pillar of the community or evil among us?  How can someone be in two places at the same time?  Does everyone have a doppelganger?  This book better not end with some sci-fi crap.  You hear me SK?  Do not disappoint your constant reader.

As always, more to come.

So, … It’s Not Me Or Is It?

My mouse is out of sorts and acting wacky.  Technical difficulties abound.  Then I see what others have done and think well I am following the same path.  Ergo, it’s not me.  But alas it must be. I must get over this FB ban for my own sanity.

Yeah, that’s right!  Snap out of it Jilly!!  You are NOT the sun.  The world revolves all on its’ own accord.  You are but a speck of dust in the cosmos.  Meaningless.

Well boo hoo.  Ms. Queen comma drama.  Again I say snap out of it!  “This is the day that the lord has made.  I will rejoice and be glad in it.”  That’s some Catholic school girl roots coming back to haunt me.  Yes I said haunt me.  Bittersweet.

I imagine my parents rolling over in their respective graves at how things have turned out.  Gruesome.  Not even close to a world without sin.  Amen.  More mental imagery and nostalgia.

Ugh, this too shall pass.  Always does before coming back again.  The trick is how do I break the cycle?

As always, more to come.

#SoCS for 3/16/19 ~ soul/sole

Goooood Morning Sunshine!  or not as the case may be. Coming at ya from the mind of one J-Dub McGillicutty.

Wait! the morning is good.  At least I hope your morning is fan-freaking-tastic.  As the case may be refers to time of day.  For all I know you’re sitting down to read this at noon.

Wow!  See how easily words can be misunderstood.  That happened to me recently y’all.  With a Haiku about an action photographer taking pictures of animals.  Someone said the Haiku was creepy and sounded like stalking.  Ugh!

Any Who, How, or Hoo … Linda tells us that your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is soul/sole.” Use one, use both, use ’em any way you like. Enjoy!

Think, think and think!

I bare/bear my soul/sole.

Nope that’s not flowing.  C’mon mind.  Let’s go. Think!

Soul of my soul

Invisible deep within me

The essence of my consciousness

Knows not what is the meaning …

Ah that’s the stuff.  Deep man.  Deep.

Sole of my sole

Is a fish

That’s might tasty

Ah that’s definitely not the stuff.  But oh well the mind wants what the mind wants much like the heart.  And for this post I am fin!  End scene!

To have the time of your life, step right here to the fun space the lovely Linda created.

As always, more to come.
