This year I'm doing a small amount of reviewing of things I watch and see, in the form of colour because it's easy, pretty and good.
On a scale of 0-6, where 6 is my favourite number and 0 is why did I even bother, can I have those hours back please?; this is my scale:
0-1 Awful, do not want
2 Abominable, guilty pleasure, sorry
3 Acceptable, good for a reason but wouldn't do it again
4 Attractive, nice at the time
5 Appealing, often revisited
6 Awesome Amazeballs, I will always love this, everyone should feel the same

and if you're trying to find me, you found me

primavera

¿vendrás tú? por mis jardines vuelan
ya las primeras mariposas
sobre las rosas,
velan
de noche los coyuyos
entre los yuyos.
sonríen las estrellas
pálidamente bellas.


¿y vendrás tú? se cubren
alegres, mis floreros
de madreselvas.
anda por los largos canteros
la risa azul del nomeolvides
y se cargan las vides.


selvas
tengo en el corazón;
árboles gruesos
prietos de ramas;
yuyos, retamas,
flores de malvón,
pájaros en las ramas,
todo eso tengo en el corazón.


¿y vendrás tú?
mis manos
fabricaron panales.
yendo de rosa en rosa cogí miel;
hice linos; no recuerdo de males.


el lecho mio es blanco
y es primavera. huele
bien, el alto barranco
mojado por la ría.
desde el mar que diviso
¿vendrá tu vela?
vuela,
primavera es gacela
fugitiva
y furtiva,
¡vuela!

unfold me, warm me up, and breathe me

So, here I am, in my own flat, on my own, at Christmas.
I'm working. I'm the most single I have been since 2007 (in that I *am* single, but there is a potential development being carefully explored). I have a home. I have a cat. I am an Auntie three times over! I'm embracing my spiritual life again. I'm fitter than I've probably ever been. I'm pretty sensible with life in general. I can look after myself, and do.

 Upstairs I have a bag of wrapped presents from some of my family, that I will open alone tomorrow, whenever I choose to get up. I have just the right amount of cards to go up on my corkboard & the mantlepiece. I have a pile of vouchers and a few presents already in use. I'm both over- & underwhelmed by it all. I went upstairs a while ago and it just hit me again - I'm here. Finally. here.
 
I have been fighting forever to get to this place.
A place just for me, a space where I am not waiting on anyone else to follow through their promises, where I can just do what I want, just for me. I depend entirely on myself, for everything. If I fall apart, I look after myself enough that I can go on. If I rejoice, I feel my heart swell. I'm not giving myself away now, not pouring my heart out beyond empty into anyone else. And that feels so strange, but also, good, right.

I miss having someone to cook for, someone to hold me through the nightmares, to fall asleep & wake up next to, to share stupid in jokes with when I find something I want to chatter about inanely. But I don't miss the cost. The cost has almost always been too high, just always actually, if I'm honest. Because no one has ever given me back what I gave to them, not for ever, not unconditionally, despite how many times it was promised unasked for.

Anyway. This is finally my christmas. Christmas is about the birth of the new light from the blesséd mother, from blood and pain and longing and despair. I can really appreciate that this year and I have been praying to and meditating with Mary, Elen, Freyja, it's been utterly moving to open myself back up, alone; all one.

I am ready
to call in the light
to embrace
become
and
be

NB:

As per the ability to now cross-post your comments whether they are on screened, filtered, friends-locked or public settings of other people's posts:

"If I find out that ANYONE is reposting things from my journal to their Facebook or Twitter,
even if it's their own comments,
YOU ARE UNCONDITIONALLY AND WHOLLY BANNED FROM MY JOURNALS.

There will be no second chances on this. My journals and my Facebook do not mix. Fuck that shit."
(- ganked from a friend)

Honestly, I'm hoping that the (so-far) 27 pages of DO NOT WANT comments on the news post have induced a panic meeting to produce a complete opt out of this ridiculous, evil idea.
But yeah. In the meantime, you repost, or you discuss anything in my journal outside of private conversations with only me, you're instantly banned. In fact, this just stands as a rule for always, and has done for a long time.

(obviously, reposting this sentiment to your lj is ok :P )

F-Cut

So, another friends cut today.
 Since everything is very odd for me at the moment. There's not any hard feelings from my end, I hope I haven't upset anyone, but at the end of the day - I have to be in control of as many aspects of my life as possible. I would expect anyone here, past or present, to understand and respect that.

never taste of the fruit, you never thought to question why

The grammar nazi in me is horrified.

 Silly christian fundamentalist from yesterday has been spreading this lie:
"In the King James Bible, many words end in "ETH". The meaning of putting "ETH" on the end of a word,
is translating it to mean 'Over and over and over again. Not once, not twice, but many times over'."


Seriously now? Seriously?!
When asked by someone where she got this info from, since the person rightly thought it was purely an archaic verb ending... she says that her son told her & he apparently studies Greek meanings in bible study and reads the bible-internet. So, OBVIOUSLY, that makes him some kind of expert on this.
  It took a minute of googlefu to confirm it is just a old third person singular ending . I informed the questioner.

 This is why we can't have nice things.


[yes, I will be twisting my butthurt anger back to just self-loathing soon.
possibly even turning it into a sef-improvement drive...]
