safe and silent [public] [Aug. 31st, 2008|09:27 pm]
Me, my cats, my girlfriend, my best friend, and my entire store team are now safely out of the city. Everyone but the employees are in Hot Springs with my folks. I alternate between distracting myself (with boat rides, Xbox, and the general happiness of being with my parents) and watching the Weather Channel, checking the NOAA website, and emailing my team to make sure everyone is safe.

It's too much like three years ago, the sitting and waiting and hoping and worrying. I haven't been able to bring myself to turn on Muriel's webcam and watch the storm roll in the way I did during Katrina. I just turn over in my head all the places I care about, all the bits of home I left behind, the way my altars looked when I left them. My bookcases turned against the walls.

My heart is tossed and battered. I just want the storm to pass.

evacuation [public] [Aug. 30th, 2008|12:21 pm]
Well, we're leaving town today. I'll be back post-Gustav, even if it looks like post-Katrina. Let's hope it doesn't.

We're headed north, to my parents' place in Arkansas. I'll post again once I get there.

Keep your fingers crossed, everybody. We need all the hope we can get.

an announcement, for your own good [public] [Aug. 20th, 2007|05:36 pm]

...everyone should watch the entire five-season series of Six Feet Under.

Seriously. Pick your favorite long-running series (for some of you, that's Babylon 5, for others, let's say Buffy...but you get the idea). Remember how happy you were when you'd seen that whole story from start to finish? Remember how you wanted to share it with all your friends? It's like that.

And for those of you who disagree with me -- whether you're disagreeing because you don't like Six Feet Under or because you don't think it should be mandatory viewing -- I suggest you fill out a missing persons report. For your soul.

Carry on.

CTRL + ALT + DEL [public] [Feb. 26th, 2007|03:31 pm]
There's a fashion show at Axis of Evil at Jake's tomorrow. You can click here for a coupon and more info.

If you haven't heard about this yet, either you don't live in Bloomington or...you're in a coma? So I'll skip the flowery OMG teh awesome part. Please come. Everyone you know is in it.

-- I'm stage managing.
-- Christina and Mari and Jarett are designing for it.
-- Jeana and Darja and Jarett are modeling.
-- Daniel gave us headphones (thanks!).
-- As always, the incomparable Willow and Libby are running this whole thing.
-- There are other people I forgot that are on my friends page that are in it, I'm sure.

Please come.
Please please please.

That is all.

dorcha, the lady of the harvest, and letting go [public] [Oct. 26th, 2006|10:40 pm]
[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

...some momentary awareness comes
As an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows
Who violently sweep your house,
Empty it of its furniture,
Still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
For some new delight...

...be grateful for whoever comes,
Because each has been sent
As a guide from beyond.

rhetorical question [public] [Sep. 26th, 2006|10:29 am]
What is it about the blues that make me feel so damn good about life?

Seems like they should be more depressing than they are. They are, after all, the blues.

Some days I really miss Memphis.
