December 7, 2019
“The rifle itself has no moral stature, as it has no will of its own. Naturally, it might be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good…

    December 7, 2019
    He who marches out of line hears another drum. This NEVER gets old. I've just finished watching it on TV for about the millionth time. This is the ONE movie I can't tear my eyes from. I don't care if I'm starving, if my bladder wants to call the shots, if you send me an…

  • He Draws Constellations
    November 28, 2019
    "We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars" (Jack Gilbert) Voilà. No fancy entry, just a picture of my forearm after playing fetch with Ja. Because when *I* try to grab his little ball after he brings it back, he tries to stop me, of course, and draws a little "star" each time he…

    "Don't give up five minutes before your miracle . . ." (Barbara Niven) If you had the option of letting people know the ONE thing they should know about you, what would it be? What you must know about me, unequivocally, is that I DO NOT joke about suicide, and that if you do it around…

    November 7, 2019
    ROFL!!  So, it's near midnight and I've been working for the past 5 hours in a translation, while a Christmas movie plays on my TV, when all of a sudden, the movie starts playing "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairies" and I see something moving out of the corner of my eye. It's Neige, my big…

  • 7 years asleep
    October 28, 2019
    So many things (yet none at all) have happened since OD closed... maybe it was a sign that I needed to move on from the loss of Mom. It felt more like a frozen hiatus in my life, & now, with OD back, it's like a piece of her returned. THANKS, @thediarymaster; you really don't…

    "Dream as if you'll live forever; live as if you'll die today" (James Dean) Aujourd'hui les paroles m'embetent, Antoine. Elles m'embetent vachement. Je ne veux rien entendre du tout - pas la tele, pas des gens, meme pas mes chats. Je ne comprend pas cette sensation, mais je ne sort pas, je decone...
