Reading some this summer – …”on the use of rhymes…” ?

Re-reading some books from high school. Started with Brave New World. I always did love this one! Just reading and sitting in a waiting room at the moment and came across this:

on pages 164-165, “…come in to conflict with Authority”…”over some rhymes”…”on the use of rhymes in Moral Propaganda and Advertisement. ”

I don’t know what is on my reading list next, but re-reading this one has been great for sparking old memories!!

P. S. The writing is going well, all comments resolved, but still neurotically going through some of the content. Trying to work out better words to describe characters and finish up dialogue. Good thing I ❤️ my thesaurus!!

A few years ago…my Tarot Card reading

A few years ago, I decided to stop and have a tarot card reading. Now that I am getting this novel together, there have been many different people pushing me to post it-some I know and others I don’t.  So…here you guys go!

first card: SEAS. Cleansing, 5 frogs on a lily pad

second card: EARTH. Ace manifestation. Work well together? Don’t ?

third card: ECSTATIC UNION.  Acceptance and reverse

fourth card: CRONE VISIONARY. (Wind). I see things as they are.

(THE TRANSITION)

THE FOOL (the middle card). Not a “fool” more introspective.

FUTURE (POST CURRENT)

card one: CARD OF DEATH IN REVERSE.  Something good born in the near future

card two: WISE WOMAN. Sees the future and the past. * sees other peoples intentions *

card three: FIRE CARD. Forgiveness.

Card four: WIND.  Child conscious. Not naive/ trusting*

hope everyone had a good Father’s Day 🙂 I plan on struggling through the boring details, grammatical errors, structure, format and order this week! Promise 😉

Personally, I always liked the thimble. Monopoly unveils new game pieces.

Here’s to the longest game ever! I grew up playing board games with both of my siblings, so I can’t help but feel a bit nostalgic about how I remember playing the never-ending yet classic game. The three of us would fall into our Monopoly board game roles: I was the banker, my oldest brother was always distracted and my other brother seemed to be the only one who understood how to build houses and hotels on his properties.

Monopoly unveils new game pieces for a few of the old one’s. Check out what CBS had to say about the new Monopoly pieces.

Healing: Living in “writer’s block” means I have to draw when forced to break from writing.

Promise to any of you readers, blog followers or supportive friends: I won’t be posting that much of my artwork. However, I would like to mention how supportive my husband has been through all of this. He knows of my previous anger issues, so here’s a couple pieces I drew with a fist in the air.

Better a fist on paper than to have mine go crashing through a wall or a window.

Forced to make analogies again…ugh.

I have had to resort to making analogies a few times over the last 4-5 years that I have been putting this original work of mine together. Lucky for me I didn’t have to make it up on the fly-already had it, handwritten on one of my hand written thesaurus cheat sheets.

SO…all I can do is vent now. Vent about what I did during those times when writing was not possible. Here’s one of a handful of sketches I completed during the five year span it took me to compile my original piece of work. Oh how I do hate making analogies for myself.

I am surrounded by “writer’s block.” Just needed a good place to put myself out there as a novice writer. Trying to edit, vent and think things through. Wish me luck!

The first thing I came across when I started this blog, was an article about our new President – Mr. Donald J. Trump. As many presidents before him, he too has the privilege and honor of his very own Presidential Library. These libraries have been preserving and making materials available for every President since our 31st: Herbert Hoover. Currently, there are 13 presidential libraries. Looks like our 45th President will make the nations’ Presidential Libraries top out at an even 14.  Trump’s Library
