It's Great To Be...

...writing again.
...drawing again.
...thinking again.
...dreaming again. again.

I feel like part of my soul has reawakened.

I only hope I don't get too distracted...
...or carried away.


  • I like it!!!!

    Take it as it comes. I am enjoying your creative work, but we all know that family and work play a tiny, but significant role in your life too.

    It all balances out one way or the other.

  • I come from the uncharted arm of a backwater galaxy myself.

    Happy for you :)

  • It's good to hear you've re-emerged from whatever tunnel you were going through.

    P.S. I know where you can go to listen to the sounds of the universe! Every time I see a space pic I think of it now...

    Taking it as it comes has proven to be quite an exercise. I never dreamed the party would be quite so into it as they have been! It's hard to keep up, but the workout has definitely been good for me.

    I'm satisfied with the odd, little, half-formed branch that is our beloved Orion Arm.

    Interesting that our sun is located in an aberrational part of the galaxy!

    S'great, then!

    Sometimes people just need to pull their pants out of their chairs and do something!

    Thanks for the link, m'lady! I love those "space sound" recordings! Speaking of which, where is that one really eerie Jupiter recording you had posted on your blog? It's good spacey listening when I can't find my old Tangerine Dream albums.

  • Go ahead and get carried away for a while. Just not by the aliens from Planet X.

  • Pandabonium

    Do you mean Sedna, Quoar, Eris, or the planet hypothesized to exist beyond the recently-discovered "Kuiper cliff"?

    By Blogger The Moody Minstrel, at 9:46 PM  

  • Yes.

    By Blogger Pandabonium, at 2:30 AM  

  • Many people believe planet X is Nibiru. I haven't seen any aliens from that planet myself, so I can't tell you if they eat TOFU!

    By Anonymous Daves, the many, at 7:39 AM  

  • I just found out that the word "tofu" in both Chinese and Japanese literally means "rotten beans". When you think about it, that's basically what it is!

    I love the stuff, but it makes you wonder how people came to eat it in the first place.

    "Hmm... Thag, what icky, white goo under old beans?"

    "Me no knows. Thag try eat."

    "Uhh...Thag, is good goo?"

    "Uhh. Please you passes soy sauce!"

  • Listen to the Planets

    Or you could search for sounds of jupiter on YouTube.

    Saturn was the scary one. Earth was quite nice. Jupiter I found to be soothing. I wonder what Holst would think if he heard them now...

    By Blogger Olivia, at 12:09 AM  

  • Soothing, yes, but eerie. Jupiter sings with both a low drone and a distant, ethereal chorus that sounds like it's blowing on the stellar wind.

    Saturn just had an attitude problem.

  • Go ahead, man. Get carried away. Beautiful realms await...

  • San, this latest "reactivation" of something feared forgotten has also led me to dig out my colored pencil for the first time in years and go into artistic overload!

    It's nowhere near as artful as what you do, though. It's just illustration. But it's still good to be doing it again!

    By Blogger The Moody Minstrel, at 9:13 PM  

  • Sorry...colored pencilS.

    By Blogger The Moody Minstrel, at 9:13 PM  

  • Ooh I like your description, and it's probably the ethereal chorus that draws me in....

    By Blogger Olivia, at 8:24 AM  

  • Speaking of which, m'lady, if you happen to be curious what I'm getting at, have a look here.

    (They haven't gotten into space yet, though...)
