so i've been thinking...

~ everyone should go to the beach at least once a month, just to clear their heads.


~ about whether you can eat the seaweed found on our northerly beaches.


~ and if so, which kind?


~ about the great wars of the last century (i'm reading ken follett's fall of giants, which is set in WWI) and the residues they have left behind.


~ about the need for an editor. and perhaps also a translator. or maybe just some english lessons. unless they really did want people to line up their dogs...


~ that sometimes the best course of action on a sink full of dirty dishes is to pour a glass of wine, turn out the light and go settle into the big chair with a good book. after all, those dishes aren't going anywhere.


~ leaving one square of toilet paper on an otherwise empty roll does not excuse you from changing it.

what are you thinking about in this liminal week, while we wait for the new year?

Yeah ... the beach is really nice. Thank goodness I live at the water so I don't have to go far. Have a Happy New Year!

I'm thinking about the fact that I should have taken this week off. And that I wish I understood my brain chemistry better. I'm thinking that I'm too young to have a bum hip. And that when I'm bored at work I get completely irritated with the fact that I have to have a job.

Have to agree totally with every piece of my being that one should be at the beach at least once a month.

Not that i'm telling you something new, lol.

... but there are no weeds in the sea, just kelp.

And, not just in your place ... everywhere, there are too many war residues. Including warrior societies who've misplaced their humanity ... replacing it with harsh rituals and bloody conquests.

..and for us Swedes it becomes even more funny because "snor" means snot. But keep taking them dogs in line, like cocaine.
