Tag Archive: #Stream of Consciousness Saturday



 

I spent my Saturday listening to a podcast of controversy, travesty of facts and fictions distorted by money and lies. But fishing through we still don’t know what to do or who caused what. Still, I think it best to hear all sides to see the forests in shades of trees.

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “-sty.” Find a word that ends in “-sty” or use the word “sty.” Enjoy!

Have to do with utter breakdowns, sweaty palms, shaking uncontrollably?

Noive! As our Cowardly lion taught us. Okay, the word is Nerve but I always heard him say it noive. I lose my nerve on phonecalls (answering or making–any that aren’t family and friends), speaking on stage. Meeting new people (though I love meeting new people!) and I used to–and probably would again since it’s been so long–singing solos. But what I learned from that lion is that if you do your best to memorize the song, dress up and look your best, and play the part of someone confident I can sing. The song that goes with that noive for me is sung by Maria Von Trapp: I have confidence. When I can internalize that song I can psych myself the nerve.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “nerve.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

 


Per Linda: Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “flag.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

For quite some time, we have chosen to fly our flag as long as the weather permits. There are so many who think they are American and fly flags other than the one we have saluted since childhood. To me, it seems we need only one flag. The rest is learning to love one another as neighbors, family, and friends.

#JusJoJan/#SoCS End/Begin


The end choice in the boredom of what I want to watch next is Reign. I’ve passed it up so many times as it seemed a teenie bopper choice. Even from the beginning the modern music and the prom dresses throw all believability out the window.  If you are looking for something with true historic meaning, you’ll not find it here. But if you want a fun show to watch that is nevertheless a bit of a lesson to said teenie boppers of how females were treated and how little has changed in a lot of cases, while hoping to never go back to that life, this is your new show. Just suspend belief even from the beginning.

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “the beginning, the end.” Write about the beginning of something and the end of something. Bonus points if your first sentence contains “the end” and your last sentence contains “the beginning.” <– Read that again. Have fun!

Per Linda G. Hill

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “close eyes and point.” When you’re ready to write your post, open a book, a newspaper, or whatever is handy and close your eyes, and point. Whatever word or picture your finger lands on, make that the basis of your SoCS/JusJoJan post. Enjoy!

Since I am concentrating on learning to make needle knit socks the nearest book was:

and the random page I turned to was:

There are the words in the second paragraph on the page on the left.

‘The Basic’ seems awfully simple but I have been studying this book and trying different angles to get socks done. Not so basic. I have several starts on big and little needles. But what seems to be what will be working for me, I hope, is VeryPink’s version of Two Socks-at-a-Time, Toe-up. Here is the YouTube I’ve been working on for a few days now. I’m getting reading to frog again. But I know what I did wrong and so I have learned a little more with each try.

 

Meanwhile, Kali is doing better. My daughter shared this picture of the day they swore her in as Kali the dog. That was before my daughter moved from her brother’s duplex to her own apartment. That was when she learned how bad Kali’s separation anxiety was. That was how Kali came to live with us where she is never alone.

What can be more basic than the swearing-in of a dog? LOL!


First thing this morning, 6ish o’clock, when Kali needed to go outside for the hundredth time of the night, yes wild exaggeration, I opened the door to the thickest fog. I guess it is a freezing fog. Though the snow had melted a couple days ago. Plants seem to have snow on all the branches. Mud on the ground. Ugh! But look at the fairyland that has formed! I’ve decided this isn’t the desert! This is one of the mesquite bushes next to the porch.

As you look at the plants, you see snow falling within the bush. Or are they fairies? Even the wheatlike weeds look magical today.

The visibility was so low that my husband missed the turn to our corner.

By the way, I think the antibiotic is helping. Kali is eating and seems happier. Hopefully, we will start getting more sleep.

More freezing fog expected tonight. Looking forward to the beauty of tomorrow.

“Here are the rules for SoCS:

1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.

2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

3. There will be a prompt every week. I will post the prompt here on my blog on Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a subject.

It snowed a couple of days ago. Real snow. Not the spit in the morning and mud by noon kind. Here are some pics I took then.

One of our mesquite bushes covered with snow.

Two inches on the rails and the post.

Our truck and car covered in snow as seen through the good-luck plant (thank you, Rizza) through our kitchen window. So beautiful everything covered and didn’t melt to mud.

It didn’t snow through the night,

Though the coyotes howled nearby.

A cold fog came early this morning.

It powdered everything so beautifully.

The mesquite was covered in snow and frost.

 With the snow, the beauty is limitless.

In fact, you might think the sky is the limit:

In the Corner

Some parents send kids there.

Some kids draw on the walls there.

Some kids follow their noses from the corner to the bigger wall.

Some find freedom that way.

 

Think about it next time you find yourself in the corner.

Maybe you deserve to be there,

or maybe not.

Draw some pictures.

Peel off the ugly wallpaper.

Follow your nose out of the corner and see the rest of the room.

Dance.

Because when you are in the corner,

You are there all alone.

Dance your way out of the corner.

Stream of Consciousness Saturday–Box


When I was young and I saw Boxing Day on my calendar I thought that it was about:

I’m not into sports, except maybe swimming. But I knew that baseball was spring and football was fall. Maybe the day after Christmas was like the championship?

Later I learned that it was a day to box up donations for the poor or even another gift-giving day. That sounds nice. I wish we did that here in the states.

Anyone else look over to an area in your house where there is a stack of boxes? Yeah, living in the country means that we have a lot of UPS deliveries. But now that we have outlawed plastic bags at the stores, we are getting more boxes. We can’t even break them down fast enough. And now I have several gifts that I need to send, yet there isn’t a box the right size.

Since this is a stream, I don’t want to box myself into a certain dialogue. Don’t box me in. Don’t put me in a box.

 

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “box.” Use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

So before my cats notice I’m not knitting, I need to get back to it.
