Three Twisted Knots

Not all those who wander are lost.

I think we choose to celebrate darkness, madly and wildly, until it catches us deeply and seems unwilling to let us go. Once darkness has had you like that, you end up either celebrating it even more wildly, or retreating, as I have done, into a more peaceful world. I am aware of the unimaginable …

Once upon a time, she cast her wishesInto the air like feathers from an owl. Like feathers from an owl, they twirled and blew And who knows why the sky accepted themAnd who knows for what purpose wishes dropThe air itself turned thicker, that she feltBut nothing else revealed itself: not yet.

My attic’s my refuge. Now, you might think, “Hedy, what are you doing in your attic wearing a spectacular gown? The truth is, I had a Thing earlier tonight.

There is definitely something wrong with this picture. Because I am off to attend …

With apologies to the monstrous and daunting songwriting talent of Randy Newman, of course. I changed only a few lines in the song, but I think it kinda works! I don’t know what came over me: must be these Crazy and Cute Cat Slippers from Death Row Designs. They’re at The Crossroads.  YouTube: Original Randy Newman recording of “You Can …

So, yeah. You know how it is. The seasons turn, Yule comes and goes, the mortal world is celebrating the beginning of a new year, and you’re pacing around on your sim platform, trying to think of a series of evocative photographs that’ll get you through Certain Things Yet To Be Announced, not to mention your …
