I did a ton of blogging for the Event @1st this past few days, there were so many groovy things to pick from. In general I blog events sparingly, first to save my Lindens for a rainy day but also because I am always late to the venue. I am inworld so little these days, I don’t have a lot of time to spend trying to gain entrance into events. As such, most everything is blogged by the time I step in the doorway. This one was loads of fun, but by the 5th or 6th photo I was reminded I am retired and no longer putting this much “time” to specifics. I want to personally thank the venue Rua A La Page for giving me this opportunity to participate this round and I wish you all so much success in the future! If you haven’t had the chance to stop by, go take a peek! Here, I’ll even include the taxi for you! Taxi!

“Atticus said to Jem one day, “I’d rather you shot at tin cans in the backyard, but I know you’ll go after birds. Shoot all the blue jays you want, if you can hit ‘em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. “Your father’s right,” she said. “Mockingbirds don’t do one thing except make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat up people’s gardens, don’t nest in corn cribs, they don’t do one thing but sing their hearts out for us. That’s why it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.” ~ Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

My friend Spirit mentioned something to me a few weeks ago about when I was getting married. I laughed and said never, and her next sentence hit me deep inside. She said, “perhaps your lack of committing fully is a sign in itself.” I blew the comment off, but knew it would rankle and fester if I didn’t think about it some. I don’t really understand my commitment phobia, I honestly don’t. But I know many of us grow up in families in which there’s anxiety. Whether it’s the anxiety to disappoint a parent or just a parent’s inability to relate to their children, well those are mine, I am sure others grew up with different pressures. With this fear of failing in a relationship how can it not lead to my poor communication skills in romantic courtships? My self-doubts, worries and insecurities would leave the most stalwart of men running for the door. It actually has a few times in the past, because who wants to wait for ever for someone who may never take that last step? I always call this my, “the Problem with our Relationship is, we’re in a Relationship” quirk, and face it, we all have quirks, they make us, us.

I spent the weekend with Taylor, he’s looking for a second home, a condo. What a restful time it was! The unit itself was so well appointed and massive! Three bedroom with three baths and a giant porch on the beachside. I didn’t like the beach nearly as much as the peaceful land in front of my condo, but this condominium had the luxury of having the ocean view and a golf view. I can’t say I follow much golf but I found the entire weekend rather amusing. They have these people, usually women that I noticed, who drive around on carts to bring the golfers drinks (soda or water, I’m sure 😉 ). The thing is, what goes in must come out. I’m not sure which golf hole we were staying over but I’m thinking it must have been near the end because one time when I looked down there was a fellow half trousered watering the palmetto bushes. I can’t imagine having to go so bad you are willing to take a leak in broad daylight amongst the view of 5 condominium buildings. Golf’s a funny game really, I watched little white balls land in sand pits, rough grassy areas and even heard the occasional “f*ck!” On that one, I’m assuming that’s not a good thing. They do a lot of wandering in the woods in golf too, though I suppose that’s just wandering off the beaten path. Me? I can’t play a lick of golf, tragedy of the time in my youth I couldn’t get the ball past that windmill thingy. Scarred me for life. But it was enjoyable to have the birds eye view on this one.
You know, for a person who confesses to wearing knickers out in public all the time, I seldom actually blog them. I purchased these a few weeks ago because I think they are so darn pretty. I hope you like them too! Have a great week!
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” ~ Marilyn Monroe
