No sparkling text is necessary to convey my mood. Most of the apartmenthold chores are done and my only real deadline within the next twenty-four hours is to make sure that I finish volumes two and three of Fables before the library starts to issue fines. As if people process that as any kind of threat.
“It’s gonna be a dime a day – each, …Missy”.
My pet frog died last weekend after two years in my aquarium. And what else could I do about the porous corpse in ways of a sane, correct farewell; I threw it away.
After the sea carriage crashed into still waters it didn’t take long to realize that clinging onto her remaining frog was not really any kind of clinging at all, and so had to swim alongside the giant albino until she reached land. The next few months with her amphibian friend were easy-going, so much in fact that she hadn’t suspected a thing during those final visits to the edgy blue.
Then one day, the last half of the duo that had pulled a once-remarkable craft, allowing her safe passage from one daydream to the next, was lying, lifeless, under the water. Not only had she lost her pet, but also a creative vision – threatened, modified, and then, completely destroyed.
A backdrop of green trees decorated with layers of drying lace (now more gray than white) waved with the branches. Looking out to the horizon, there were so many questions left unanswered. Just where had the wreck brought her? Where had she even come from and to where had she been traveling?
What seemed to be part of the sunset’s reflection on the rippling water drew closer, golden and glowing. Once it was close enough she saw that it was a brilliant goldfish, shades of chocolate and true gold, roughly the size of a baby dolphin…
So now my discolored Black Moor is rooting around the large tank.
Death not far behind, one of the ghoulies from the haunted house actually looked me up and found my journal! It was a special feeling of connection that only a haunted circus, online realm and Autumn May could provide. Although I don’t have my own internet connection yet and have been relying on occasional visits to the clubhouse, it’s good to know that I can still plug in and create a circuit.
