I feel his pain

I follow Neil Gaiman's tweets and his blog. He is an amazing writer, seems like a fabulous person, and really lives his life. So when he recently posted the loss of his beloved dog....and I read his made me not only cry, but think about my own dog. Gomez turned 6 this past December. He is a big, beautiful, healthy boxer....but he isn't immortal. And though I will not let the thought of his mortality overshadow his present, I dread the end. So I share Neil Gaiman's words here - he quotes Kipling.

Anyone still out there?

You may think me dark and dreary, but my color shines mirror bright. Tinted with silver and blue-flavored highlights, I am the gray of the storm cloud high above your head. My multivariate coloring is not lackluster or negative. I shine with shadows and somber hues, creating mountains and monsters which frolic in the sky. I tease you with dark, mottled textures rife with vivid peeks of glaring white and valleys of shocking blue, and flirt with the warm tenderness of fuzzy flannel. Sometimes I’ll present an intense, wrathful, malevolent fa├žade, full of black edged violence, but I always come back to my soft, velvety grayness. ...Just a short writing assignment I did back in 2008.

Ok, so here is my new tweaker project. As I said, this is a puzzle circa 1913, with NO interlocking pieces. I am ultra proud to day that I actually have found a few pieces that fit that shows me at least some of this will work. I don't have an image to work from, just a name - "Father's Return" we shall see how this plays out.

Stay tuned.

New - "Puzzling" directions!!

A "nice" co-worker gave me a puzzle the other day. I say "nice" because this will either drive me nuts, or make me feel like I'm Queen of the World.

It's a NON-interlocking wooden puzzle from around 1913....and I have no picture from which to work.

I will photograph my progress and blog my sanity as I progress....

Photos to come soon....

Humans are:

rude; abusive; abrupt; arrogant; self-centered; racist; blunt; discourteous; inconsiderate; impolite; offensive; thoughtless; sarcastic; conceited; disdainful; egotistical; disrespectful; greedy; hostile; narrow-minded; petty; spiteful; callous; cruel; vicious; graceless; sadistic; wicked; obscene; and just plain mean.

I truly despair for the species.

And sincerely wish I could separate myself from them.
