Pinned toot

I tend to talk about:
writing
books/short stories/poetry
words - how they work/where they come from/their power
dogs
my family - youngest, eldest, husband
nature - I like to post pics
history
cool things I learn
my disability, dysautonomia.

I like to listen.
I'm shy, but loyal. Like a small dog, really.
Gryffindor, even though it often hurts.

Today I learned that there is a gemstone called "ammolite" which comes from fossilized ammonite, and it is absolutely gorgeous.

Aha. Writing out notes for the next stage of the plot and discovered my larger theme: accessibility!

I woke around 5 from a nightmare. Had to go around the house and turn all the lights on. It's weird how our brains perceive threat and action.
Anyway, I read earlier this year that researchers think that spooky feeling you get in 'haunted' places might be sound vibrations pitched beyond hearing.

I have a squishy window-cling fox on our window, and it is covered in little dead gnats. I'd like to clean it, but I'm worried it'll lose its stickiness.

Old Euclid drew a circle
On a sand-beach long ago.
He bounded and enclosed it
With angles thus and so.
His set of solemn greybeards
Nodded and argued much
Of arc and circumference,
Diameter and such.
A silent child stood by them
From morning until noon
Because they drew such charming
Round pictures of the moon.

Emptied clothes out of youngest's closet and packed them for the thrift store. She has good taste, but alas, a smaller frame than mine.
