Notebook Fragments...

Nothing whole to post since Tuesday... yawn.

Thumbing through my notebook, I find dozens of scraps...
pieces of thoughts. All seem to be begging to attach to more.

More what? I dunno, yet, but I thought that if I make a list
here, in this format... the muse might see it and slap me
upside the head with something useful. Witty. Somber. Anything.
A kind of public pondering, if you will.

Don't expect everything to make sense to you.
It will not be in any special order. Don't be scared...
for that matter, feel free to ignore this post if it bores you.

1 ~ Ass and apendages flailing every which way. ( the ass alone requiring
a wide-angle lens for viewing).

2 ~ a convenience store for sex, "Blow 'n Go" or "Quickie-Mart".

3 ~ Fear scares me.

4 ~ Do not post while inebriated. I cannot write when I am drunk.

5 ~ It takes a dream to move a life, focus, inner vision.

6 ~ Several lives. The people here don't know the people there.

7 ~ It's been a good day. And, I'd say tomorrow has promise too.

8 ~ Bats in belfry. Mad as a hatter. Skeletons in closet.

9 ~ Alone at night.

10~ If you think you have to hurt someone to make yourself
feel better, don't pick someone who's been good to you.

11~ Train in the distance... should I be there? Walk away?
Plane landing... should I be there? Anywhere but here, now?

12~ No such thing as always.

13~ I am older than so many. Younger, but a few.

14~ You don't have to go home but, you cannot stay here.

15~ It's cute but, it's not a hoot.

16~ Even sweet dreams do bring tears. Bittersweet chocolate.

17~ It isn't good or bad. It just is.

18~ Man-slut.

19~ Make me want you.

20~ Is there ever a next time?

21~ If it were up to me...

22~ Eclipse-overlap-block-hide.

23~ Nothing is free. Are you willing to pay?

24~ You complete me? Nah.
But, you definitely enhance my life.

25~ A conversation, or a repeating series of brain farts?

26~ Enjoying myself enjoying you.

27~ The inconsequential man.

28~ Once upon a time, in a land close by...

29~ heh... I made ya say "please".

30~ It's quick, easy and bad for me. Sometimes I really want
something that is bad for me. Is that bad? I don't think so.

31~ My wall is higher than your wall.

32~ Miss me now or miss me later.

33~ I am not you but I am like you.

34~ After all the wanting and waiting, what if I don't like it?

35~ Music: saves me, hurts me, heals me.

36~ Just in case you don't remember: I love you.

37~ Kids think time lasts forever. The rest of us know
that isn't true.

38~ I think it's easy to "over-explain". I do that a lot when
I'm talking. I try hard not to when I'm writing.

39~ I should've known I wouldn't belong here.

40~ Don't ask. Don't care. Don't matter.

41~ Life quilt...

42~ Don't tell me what I want to hear, unless it's true.

43~ Empty words are worse than no words.

44~ Not smart. Just easily amused.

45~ Twice in twenty years...

46~ What's left is to believe what you know.

47~ Do you miss a pain when it stops? Why miss him (her)?

48~ Didn't need to escape "to", only needed to escape "from".

49~ One could be sprawled, ever so un-ladylike.

50~ Do not pine to be someone else...

51~ Offering candy to my baby.

52~ Things that make my blonde head hurt...


kdzu said...

Many of these sound most intriguing.
Sprawled, ever so un-ladylike, for instance.
I begin to think, in my wizened, walnut sized, perverted brain, that I should write many things down, just so I can read them and ponder why I am...... so. Never to be published, but understood better than just muse-ing about them.

Jean said...

Larry - I keep a notebook with me at all times. You never know what will jump-start the imagination.
(so, ya like that one, eh? heh.)

boneman said...

Some really do seem to be small seeds...ready to grow at a moment's beckonning.

(8 ~ Bats in belfry. Mad as a hatter. Skeletons in closet.)

This one kind'a reminds me how my elevator doesn't go to the top floor.
'Course, walking the last couple of flights IS healthier.

I'm not playing with a full deck....
but, I LIKE euchre.

Lights are on but no one is at home...
I always leave the lights on for in case anyone comes to visit while I'm gone.

Not the sharpest tool in the box....
Neither is a hammer, but it sure is useful.

Few bricks shy of a whole load.
But then, I only wanted to make a walkway, and it doesn't take a whole load fer that....

Bats in the belfry....
Where'd y'want me to keep them? In the livingroom?

Mad as a hatter,...well, maybe if he hasn't been paid fer making all them hats fer the army.

Skeletons in the closet....
until halloween, that is.

I think if you go back and flesh out any single one of those gems (yours, not mine...After all, I've lost my marbles.......'course, I AM too old fer marbles, now)
You'll find that your talent for writing will shine as bright as any candle.

bonnie said...

As usual, I find food for thought and inspiration in your post. Hmm, even your pieces of thoughts stir emotions. Thank you for that, Jean.

Hammer said...

These are something to think about.

I bet they could apply to just about anyone at one time or another.

Jean said...

Berry - sweet, as always. You brighten my day...:)

Bonnie - you are welcome, m'dear.
Do you have a blog?

Hammer - universal connections, indeed.

bonnie said...

No, I don't have a blog. Afraid I'd do exactly what my dearest friend accuses me my mouth and it just flops out. He tells me I'm a wee bit too open and honest for my own good. But I have to admit I've met some wonderful people and formed tremendous friendships with my cyberfriends in the blogsphere.

Jean said...

Bonnie - ha... many times people have commented on my openness here. Some have said 'brave', some have been shocked. Can't help it, it's me.
I love my cyberfiends. Welcome to a wonderful group!

Velociman said...

Do not post while inebriated? Damn. I just lost 90% of my blog!

Jean said...

Vman - heh... it works for you. Me? Nope.

Can't believe no one has mentioned item #2 yet!

AspergantuS said...

Jean ~ Number 2 on your scrap list is freakin GENIUS! That's all I'm sayin.....

Jean said...


ArtfulSub said...

Just discovered your blog. You write powerfully. "My wall is higher than your wall" sounds like a good one to flesh out to me.


k said...

miss bonnie, that's the point. You sound like an excellent blogger-to-be to me. To my *ears*? Your friend was telling you exactly why you SHOULD have a blog, not why you shouldn't!

and boneman, you crack me up. The first thing I consciously thought, reading this wondrous post, was how perfectly *riffable* it was.

Which, come to think? Jean, isn't that exactly why that notebook is always with you?

for doodling down the seeds of the future riffs, there.

Valerie - Still Riding said...

17, 34, 43 and may I add a bit for you to ponder on -

If we can't change anything why are we here?

If we can why don't we?

curmudgeon said...

Twice in twenty years?

Good gawd-a-mighty. Hope it's not what I'm thinking....

Jean said...

AS - thank you, sir. That one has been rolling around for a while. Might be time.

k - I think you're right re bonnie... a blog is a great format for expressing... well, anything really. I think it can be free-ing.

...and, the notebook?... exactly, my friend, exactly.

Val - I'll add those to my list, thanks.

Dave - ha!...noooooo, but if it doesn't happen soon... *sigh*
