Hands

Posted 13th October 2013 at 10:40 AM by Ebonytears

They say you don't know what you've got until it's gone. I think in many ways that is very true. Take for instance your hands. Look at them. 5 fingers all meeting at a fleshy palm attatched to your arm by a wrist. Most of us don't really pay attention to them at all. We don't take the time to care for them, some of us might rub some cream into them or spend time on the nails but the actual hand itself is pretty much ignored.

Now, while looking at your hands imagine if you can't...

Bugger

I've been dealing, I've been coping...until today. Today I didn't cope and, because of that I spoke to my daughter in a way that I am ashamed of. So I'm putting this here so that some of that frustration can be vented. I don't have RL friends to 'have coffee with'. I know people don't believe me but it's true. The one person I considered a friend told me 'I don't have room in my life to deal with this' when I told her I have Lupus and I haven't heard from her since.

Lupus. Systemic...

What is your hearts desire?

Posted 16th March 2011 at 11:56 AM by Ebonytears

This question was asked of me when I was backpacking over 15 years ago. At the time I gave a flippant answer and forgot about it. Recently it has been something I have been thinking about.

The other day it came to me. My hearts desire is, quite simply, to learn. Doesn't seem like a biggy really, something rather simple. It's not and it has caused me no amount of trouble.

Frustration Max

Posted 15th February 2011 at 02:31 PM by Ebonytears

I am going to rant here in the hope that this will get it out of my system and I can actually get something DONE.
My personality is ...bloody annoying at the best of times. I range across the full spectrum from calm and reliable to boarderline certifiable. People who know me say I'm a people person and I don't understand that. I don't like people. They irritate the hell out of me. I don't mind surface skimming but people tend to feel the need to tell me things and I honestly, really couldn't...

What is the difference?

Posted 23rd August 2010 at 09:47 PM by Ebonytears

I was with my sister the other day and made the mistake of verbally expressing my wish for a new graphics card. My sister can basically navigate Facebook and send emails...with assistance. So I dummied it down as much as I could and explained why I wanted to, eventually upgrade my graphics card. She enquired as to which one I wanted. I got a bit carried away talking about a few of the newer ones on the market and what they could do so my brain wasn't really in the right place when she asked...
