In What Universe Is This OK?

Seattle is  a bike friendly town.

So friendly in fact that if you are renting one of those run around bikes you can dump it in a handicapped parking spot in a private parking lot and your friends can jam their bikes so close to the handicapped spot that there is no way anyone could use the passenger doors to let anyone out of the car or van without a care in your head because

YOU ARE DOING YOUR PART TO SAVE THE WORLD…

no matter how many people with mobility issues that you have to screw over to do it.

The Doctor’s House

Down the street from where I live

with my two black cats and a dog named Sin

is an empty house where a Doctor lived.

 

I think the monsters got him.

I think they took him away.

Screaming and bleeding and dreaming.

After dark on that Friday.

 

I think sometimes he gets loose

I think sometimes he come back

Because sometimes late at night I hear him howl,

” Where are you hiding? Step right up. Don’t be afraid. The Doctor is in.”

Songs Of The Golden Frog

Once upon a time my Dad’s Mother looked at me and said, ” not everyone can be pretty or beautiful. ”

My cousin who was sitting next to her was pale and blond and from what I understood- a beautiful child.

I had dark hair, dark skin. I was refrered to at times by her  as ” sallow”  and slow.

“You should work on a talent.”

I decided to take my Grandmother’s advice and I decided to sing.

I learned songs from the radio, I learned all of the songs I heard my family sing. I even made up my own songs. I asked for my own record player and went to church with my friend so I could sing in the Children’s Choir.

One day I decided to sing a few songs for my Grandmother and she sat there until I was done and then she smiled and then she laughed and then she said,

” Maybe you should work on your personality.”

I was seven years old at the time.

I didn’t know what ” personality”  was  but I was sure I probably didn’t have that either.

Daily Prompt: Song

I Usually Skip That Part

Today I got my James Comey Book,  A Higher Loyalty and  because I got it delivered to work I only had time to zip through the Author’s Note. I usually skip that part because for the most part they’re no fun to read.

This time I read it.

And it was a total LOL moment.

The biggest criticism I’ve heard about James Comey by disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters and talking heads and Republicans ( which is a puzzle to me – because if you go down that rabbit hole he helped Twitler get elected ) is that

James Comey is  prideful, over-confident, and driven by ego.

You know who else says that?

James Comey  on page two of The Author’s Note .

I probably found that funnier then I should have.

I used to work at a bookstore and it was my job to sell books like The Turner Diaries and other White Supremacist BS books that would make a decent person’s eyes bleed before you got through the first chapter.

What I learned by reading those books and having conversations with the people who read them was this- I’d no more tell a person NOT to read write a book than I would burn one

My reason though, probably isn’t what you may assume.

When somebody commits their thoughts to paper, they are exposing who they are and how they tick. You can wrap your story in well structured sentences or emjois but it doesn’t matter because you’ve just given the world a road map to your brain.

So to my friends who wondered why I would buy and read a  book that I have been told ‘should never have been written’ all I can say is this- if you have started to walk down that road- the one where you feel that’s it’s ok to tell people what to think and what to read-  you probably need to read this book more than I do.
