It’s almost the middle of February, right? March. March will be here soon.
I’ve been thinking happy spring thoughts because for the past few weeks, brutal winter weather has been kicking my ass and wringing me dry. Storms, piles of snow, freezing rain, freezing cold. Relentless shit. Right now, the sound fierce winds outside my window is making me shiver.
It’s all been chipping away at me. I have no energy. Simple day to day tasks are a challenge at the moment.
I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time hidden beneath blankets on the couch, and watching more movies than I have in a while.
And I stare at my toys a lot. My toys give me such joy.
So anyway, I’m behind on a number of projects, especially Masterful, the main current project.
I am, however, on schedule as far as Patreon is concerned. Among other things, I’ll be sending my second and third tier members some old school Valentine cards this month. Patreon continues to bring a smile to my face. I love having exchanges with my subscribers, sending them physical copies of my work, sharing thoughts, photos, excerpts from my books, and news with them. It’s a pleasure. Once I get some of my energy back, even more so.
My Ello posting was short-lived, again. Mostly because I’ve had it with social media and virtual whatevers as a whole, the two exceptions being Instagram (my activity there is sporadic/moderate), and a breath of fresh air, a new platform for infernal-minded individuals, Undercroft. No algorithm driven bullshit, no data mining, none of the garbage that’s endemic online these days. No censorship, no idiocy. No conflict addicted jackasses, no click bait mindlessness. At last, an alternative to the sad outposts that now compose the vast majority of the Internet, that dreary corporate wasteland and batshit crusade factory.
Undercroft is actually interesting. What a novelty! And there are a few other worthwhile places, such as The Reprobate.
On that note, I need to go warm myself up, put on a few layers of sweaters, and organize my macramé supplies. In a couple of weeks, I’m giving a tarot reading (delayed due to weather etc).
Weather and exhaustion aside, in most ways, my life is better than it’s ever been. I savor my life and live it how I want to live it.
