Painted Grasshopper

Grab me and I kill you.

Well, at least I try. I squirt a yucky goo at you when you touch me. This hurts you. It burns… or maybe it just gives you a good scare.

He smashes my face in when he’s drunk.
Never mind. I don’t hurt. Only my dignity does.
He’s a writer. Famous. Writes about space aliens. About connecting with them.
Hah.

Not writing…

I’m a bit stressed out from work at the moment, can’t focus on writing much. And I feel bad when I just post a story and can’t even reciprocate the comments I get. So I’ll post a bit more knitting and crocheting. That, and a few other things, is what I do when I don’t write or read.

Here’s what I knitted a few years ago, fingerless mittens that come especially handy when walking the dog. My hands are getting painfully cold fast, even if it’s not very cold outside, and these things keep them nice and warm and I still have the fingers free to give treats, grab the leash and such.

I had some old yarn lying around, not enough to make a sweater, but enough for this. I also crocheted a cloche hat, which I also love to wear on dog walks, because it keeps me warm and also protects my glasses from the rain.

I really hope I’ll find the energy to get back to writing, but right now I need another break.

Looking at these old railway tracks, I remember our history.

Tracks like these brought the trains we thought were filled with allies. Instead they held weapons. Weapons so vile, so powerful, they nearly destroyed us all.
