Dangerous Compassions

listy Laura-Marie


I was telling Ming how I had two thank you notes I was supposed to write, my only two things for the day, and didn’t get to them.  Wtf!  Why is it so hard to do the things I need to do?  I do lots of other things.

I don’t want to be a jerk to myself, but really, Laura-Marie!  What is so important besides what you’re supposed to do?

I do these things most days
  • learning to eat in a new way
  • feeding myself three meals a day, plus snacks, plus feeding Ming somewhat
  • showers, hair washing, skin care, managing clothes and bodily accouterments
  • blogging every day
  • learning the SEO and shit
  • zine writing
  • reading incoming mail
  • writing letters
  • assembling, packaging, and sending outgoing mail
  • journaling
  • making art
  • txting friends
  • emoting
  • lying in bed in the halfdark, singing or doing nothing
  • meetings
  • promoting events and orgs I believe in
  • garden moments
  • trike rides

Oh wait, I don’t wanna list everything, but that’s a taste.  You can see I’m busy with life, even though I don’t have kids, pets, or a regular job.

I guess what I don’t do could be relevant to list also.

I don’t do these things
  • parent
  • daughter, aunt, grandmother, or any other relativing, usually
  • drive
  • watch tv
  • watch movies
  • consume news
  • eat meat
  • work for money
  • go to the store

Hmm, got listy around here, all of a sudden.  Brainstorming is so pleasurable to me, I could be a pro idea generator.  I’m a list maniac.  I have to admit, I could list all day.  To portside.

Speaking of vehicular travel, my trike’s fixed!  The bike shop got done a day early.


Love to you and your day.  I hope you’re doing what you need to do and enjoying it, as we have one life, and no one else is going to enjoy your life but you.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
