Splat, There's a Post!

Today was a tough day... For whatever reason I felt sad and disinterested in my usual activities and it took a special effort to stay busy and distracted and to resist the dark thoughts. Thankfully I'm not being beat up too badly by suicidal thoughts but I'm definitely feeling the challenges of a sad mood.


I wanted to write something for "Words for Wednesday," and my off day definitely influenced my writing! Hopefully I can write more of an update update soon (read: hopefully my mood rebounds and I have a better update to share soon).

Sea green
Froth
Sharp
Thousands
Rain
Abducted

His sea green eyes cheer me on, whisper encouragement and anchor me to this world. Carefully I pick my way through the cluttered path, over sharp shells and thousands of battered tendrils of seaweed that have been carelessly abducted by swiftly flowing froth. The rain falls over us and he smiles as tears crest my lower lids. "Some days are just going to be harder than others and that's not your fault at all," he shakes his head and rubs my shoulder, "You're doing the best you can and that's enough." I nod and sigh, struggling to refocus my brain on the colors around me and breathing in and out at a calculated pace... one moment at a time.


Til next time! Be well :o)

  1. God, woman. You can write! DO you know that? SO powerful!

    I get the sad. I don't know what is worse. The sad or the depression. Maybe sad is a little easier to carry because you can see something that is funny or cute and it lifts for a bit.

      I think the sad is a little easier but they both certainly suck!

  4. This is my story

    The former master of the seized ship sat forlornly on the stern thwart holding the tiller of the 32 foot Cutter possibly wondering what went wrong. The ships crew or most of them had been abused or flogged at the slightest whim of the their officers and their attendant security namely six marines. the wife of the Master being one of the main reasons for the mutiny; who demanded the flogging of all persons who would dare look upon or drool over her gaze-worthy form.
    The plot was quite simple. The second mate Mr Vest and now Master designate, suggested a birthday party be held and on the lower deck and invite the six marines whom they easily filled with rum and were soon snoring.. The mutiny commenced when the marines were (ABDUCTED) one after the other at the point of the (SHARP) end of a bayonet on the end of a musket Stolen from the marines while asleep.. One by one the marines and officers were rudely awakened from their slumbers to be taken to the upper deck and ordered to climb down into the ships cutter.in the pouring (RAIN). Soon after a baricoe of water and provisions were sent down to the boat which was now swinging a fair bit in the wind and waiting to be lowered on the crest of a wave in a boiling (SEA GREEN) ocean.
    Finally the order to " Let Go' was given and the disengaging gear dropped the boat and the boat cleared the side of the ship and was seen later wallowing up and down with a lady still in her night attire screeching with (FROTH Covering her sea sick face.
    Fortunately the persons in the cutter would soon reach land fall for what it was worth, being there were (THOUSANDS) of islands in the near vicinity - mostly populated by people yet to become subordinate to a foreign power and with a taste for 'Long Pig' , Maybe a Great white variety would soon be on their menu
    "Ready about" came the order from the new Master - Captain Vest who pointed the ship to Rio and freedom. rather than Sydney and incarceration..

    1. Thanks :o) I've grown up seeing a lot of seaweed strewn along the beaches up here in the PNW, so I think that line was a long time coming!

  7. Unfortunately on beaching, the boat crew were ABDUCTED by THOUSANDS of Fuzzy Wuzzies who had not tasted White people before - who butchered the arrivals with SHARP KNives Then boiled in RAIN water the older people adding tasty SEA GREEN Veggies , the FROTH of the stew had the locals dipping in their wooden spoons for pre tasters. Others were content to wait for the new recipe of 'White long Pig' namely Barbequed captains Wife. " Well you asked for a suitable ending."
