Hi. I think your story is beautiful, impressive and very very well written! I would love to read more from you, really. Also sorry about your current situation, I am in some kind of a purgatory when my marriage is crumbling and one new relationship is just building oh so slowly that I cannot be sure it will ever develop. So I can imagine how you feel. Sort of. Anyway, thank you for a great story.

i need 2 merge this in. -len

for Amanda this asymmetry is not exhausting, but invigorating.

Amanda has no fans.  just many friends.

contact with her is a gift she cherishes.
making it more from yourself is icing on that gift.
though she appreciates that icing.
Amanda much prefer the gift of yourself to anything physical. 
she often tours with minimal luggage & doesn't have space for added stuff.

talking substantially about music, especially clueing her into a new group she hasn't heard of is appreciated.  one of her best friends started this way.

as is discussing how to mother.  e.g. how it's different in your state or country.

if you can, treat her as you would an interesting stranger, you want to know better.

Shitty week due to issues in my 7+ year long relationship.  The kind of issues where everything is either going to work out "happily ever after" or everything is going to go absolutely to hell and I'm going to want to pull an Ophelia and drown myself in the Charles River.  Seriously, I'm counting it as a win that I haven't cried yet today, and that yesterday I only cried once. 

Anyway.

I wrote a thing and would love some feedback.  Trying to work out my inner demons I guess.  I was challenging myself to tell a story in fewer than 500 words.  Would love to know what people think. 

[Untitled Strange Story]
I never believed.  It is rather difficult to imagine.  The Elder Gods have risen, and I never believed.  It was just a thing to do on the weekends. 

My girlfriend got me into it.  She was gorgeous - all long dark hair, and white skin, and pale lips.  Her eyes were cold, pale blue and they saw things.  She brought me to my first meeting and held my hand as the knife came down on the sacrifice.  I threw up.  I cried.  I kept coming back.  Not for the gods.  For her.

The mystic ceremonies almost made me believe - the smoke that ‘opened our minds’ to the voices of the nameless ones.  We inhaled and we saw the destruction of Carcosa, envisioned it happening here on our fair and distant shore.  And I believed in her more than anything.

And then she left me.  Looked at me with ice-chip eyes, "Sorry," she lied.   Said she no longer believed.  But this will show her.  This will show everyone.

We were too far ahead of the curve.  People didn't realize how cool vinyl was again yet.

Shangri-la (much better defined)



cold-brew or hot-brew coffee?
No, thank you.

Herbal "tea" or real actual tea?
