Trails and Paths

Oct. 13th, 2011 03:03 am Rude awakenings

I've now had three days straight of waking in the middle of the night to strange things. First, I wake up with my hand clentched around the hilt of the backsword that stands next to my bed, sweat pouring from me and heart pounding. I'm not even sure what woke me up, let alone why I had grabbed for a weapon.

The next night, I crack my eyes open and feel a presence on my chest. My first thought is that it's the cat. When my brain registers the fact that it is larger than the cat, my sleep fiddle mind says "Samantha, scoot, I need to get up" which pops my mind into first gear. It also alerts me to the fact that it wasn't Samantha cuddled up into me, but a pillow. With a cat on it. Glaring at me for the lack of food in her dish.


And last but not least, I wake up most recently wrapped so tightly in my blankets that I actually dreamt of fighting the spiders of Mirkwood and having a panic attack when I was waking up thinking inwas being encased in a web.

Almost makes me wish I had my staff in the house so I could at least magic away some dream-foes.

In othe news, new arts to be uploaded soon, if you haven't already seen the close up head shot on Facebook!

Apr. 24th, 2011 01:36 am I sense a disturbance...

I think I fucked up.

But who would've known that it could have gone awry? I thought that the worst that would have happened would be her feeling uncomfortable with the group of unknowns (which some of her ramblings indicated) but I didn't forsee the reveal of something that might have upset the delicate balance o the walkers on this tightrope.

I almost wish I hadn't kept my promise to delete that string of texts that she wrote. Damn my sense of responsibility!

I'm not sure who to be more upset with; me for instigating the whole thing, Holly for spilling the beans, or Hillary for accepting the invitation in the first place.

But is it also in my mind? Is it more that she's just busy? Or avoiding the topic to let it simmer on the back burner? Or has a revelation of something like that destroyed the bridge of trust I had helped build?

I'm no sure, but at least I know where the bourbon is, and...crap, bottle's empty.

Feb. 24th, 2011 04:46 am I know it's early,

But I has a new shiny that will be delivered on my birthday and wants to share it with the people who don't ever read this thing but would appreciate it.

You know who you are...


Silver plated with high g.

It has no name as of yet, but shall fit right in with Kaori, my circa 1971 mrk vi tenor, and Hinata, my Super balanced action series III alto. I love being in a local band AND a sub player...let's me do what I love and pays well enough that I actually have the funds to keep my gear in top condition and get new shinies!

Maybe I'll call her Jess...Nooooooo, I've got it!



In other news, I shall be performing my graduate recital on May 5 of this year, containing the following works;

Sonata No. 3 in F major, by Handel
Blues in E, by unknown
Moanin', by Billy Timmons, with transcribed Benny Goldson solo
Autumn Leaves, by Julian "Cannonball" Adderly, with transcribed solo
Megalith, by Masato Honda
Sonata for Saxophone, Ohagi, by Masato Honda
Sonatina in A Major, original composition
Tenor Madness, Sonny Rollins with transcribed solo
E.K.G, original composition
J.L.T., original composition
H.E.W., original composition

For those that will attend, free food after the show. It should run around ninety minutes, and if it runs long in the dress rehearsals, I'll cut the original comps for time.

*looks up tracking number again* *squee*

Now the band can add 'Ants Marching' and 'Rapunzel' to the set lists.

Is it my birthday yet? Not excited to be 29, but *bounces* new sax!

Seven years ago she up and leaves with little to no explanation. She pops up three years ago and we make small talk.

"I never really was told why, Christina*. I don't really care that it's over anymore, but I think I am owed that much."

"Mike, that was 7 years ago. And there has been a lot of stuff thats happened in-between that even if i though about it i wouldn't be able to give you an answer."

*names changed to protect identity.

I have never really felt all that good about the parting, and I always thought that maybe she just couldn't admit to certain reasons.

But to still not know AFTER SEVEN YEARS?!?!?!?!?!?!?


Why is the closest thing to rage metal on my iPod Linkin Park right now?

If I just admit defeat, would that help any?

I think I would be in better sorts if I went to the wedding alone. That way, I don't have to worry about anything but getting out there and back.

And yet...........


a little help from the peanut gallery?

Someone, anyone…explain women to me. Or at least tell me why I constantly wind up befuddled by the so called "fairer sex". At this moment. I have no less than five different quandries with no clear answer and frankly, it makes me want to join the clergy and retire to some remote monastary where I can be at some level of peace.

I try to think openly, and I try to be fair, I try to keep up, but I have to take a nap. I surrender! You all win! My sanity is dangling precariously at the cliffs edge.

So, any takers on the explanation? No?

Must not be anybody here to listen to my rants anymore. *sigh*

I need beta readers. I need both people to review single chapters and the whole narrative.

If you are willing to help out, please message me at my email or text me. If you don't have either for me, comment here with your email and I'll send you what you asked to read.

Please and thank you!

Nov. 20th, 2009 12:15 am Hey...

Remeber that story I was writing that I said would never get published?

Remember how wrong I tend to be?

Yeah. That's right.

Vindication baby.

Now if I could come up with $356 by Monday, I'd be set.
