I learned a wonderful new word
(noun) Originated from Ancient Greece, nepenthe is described as something, which can make you forget your heartache, grief or suffering. (via wordsnquotes)
and I realized I have a lot of things in my life that I can classify as nepenthe
My heart was broken this month. Someone whom I loved dearly, instead of bringing an issue they had to me, chose a different way to handle it. I was crushed that this was the path they had chosen. Even moreso since the ensuing chaos has defamed another person I love and cherish. I have asked myself many times over the course of these past few days, what, if anything, could I have done to engender more trust by this individual. When I have an issue with something someone said or did, I go to the source, always to the source. I thought this was known protocol... or rather, I would have hoped that this was the protocol I have tried to instill in those around me. After days of ruminating, I realize it wasn't something I did or could have done. It was a knee-jerk reaction on their part. I am disappointed.
Because of the chaotic aftermath of the above story, I thought I would offer up a sounding board if anyone had any questions about some of the heinous social media posts that they had been seeing. I offered up the simple,
"Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have."
After an innumerate amount of private messages, and several public questions that made me pull out my dusty tarot cards, I finally had to close the thread but I have to say, it was a fun Saturday.
I'll have to do it again soon.
Our group held a book fair this month. It was awesome and I got these great pictures.
Are You Not Entertained?
Things that entertained me this month.
Sean Spicer Press Conference (Melissa McCarthy) - Saturday Night Live video
"It took a few insults delivered in a trademark shriek to hammer home that this really was Melissa McCarthy, in drag, capturing the unquestionable essence of a political figure whose public image so far has largely revolved around belligerence, alternative facts, and cinnamon gum. As soon as the assembled audience figured it out, they began cheering, causing McCarthy’s Spicer to berate them once again. “Settle down, SETTLE DOWN!,” she screeched. “Before we begin, I know that myself and the press have gotten off to a rocky start. And when I say rocky, I mean Rocky the movie because I came out here to punch you. In the face. And also I don’t talk so good.” ~quoted from The Atlantic

It was a full Saturday. First I went to help move some furniture and had a bit of a reunion with many of my former fellow church members. I was also able to visit with my lady, always a nice thing. Stopped at the Laos Asian Market at DI and Pecos and picked up a few items including the chili sauce that is so amazingly tasty that I use it for almost everything. Then I went shopping for art supplies. I needed a new watercolor brush and decided on a Neptune size 10. The gentlemen at Desert Art Supplies said I would love it. I used it for the Lupercal and so far so good. I then visited the Bell Book and Candle store to help Lady Airrawind with social media. We converted the BBC Facebook profile to a page and I gave her 3 tasks for the week. See here for more info on the tasks. While at the BBC, I saw that many of the small artsy item tags were still being used. They are starting to fade but Yay! it was exciting to see them. I'm pretty sure it was about 2005 when I created them, maybe even a bit earlier. Then, I volunteered to work the door at the German-American Social Club of NV for their Valentines Dinner. With help from Rose and Chris, it went well except for a couple of glitches. And since I don't eat pork, Silvia, the night's chef, made chicken for me. Awwww shucks. :-) The Poole Party entertained and the drinks were flowing. And then I made some art which reminded me that you do the watercolor before you do the writing. Still, it didn't turn out too bad, if you like that messy kind of art thing. Not really my style but aesthetically pleasing enough. It's been a while.
Everyone has a story to tell; sometimes several, including me. Here are some stories from my life and from others.
