The song echos on,
No matter the year,
No matter the reason,
So I march on,
As my body dies.
So how’s 2020 been going for all of you? I’ve been fairly productive all things considered. But for whatever reason I’ve been struggling on what long term projects to work on. As usual I probably have too many and I need to cut down on things.
Also there is another thing you’ve probably noticed. I have not been writing Wandering Thoughts blog posts at all since the start of 2020. The year is almost over, surely I must have some thoughts on things. Well I do, but putting things into words has been hard in 2020. I know it’s a writer’s job to put things into words, and I can still get poems, and fiction written no problem, as well as my table top RPG project (Though things have slowed down a bit with that).
Part of me suspects I’m going to have a ton of things to say at the end of 2020. Spiritually and politically, it has been an eventful year. But in terms of major life events I’ve mostly been sitting around, not doing anything. At least I have the option to do that though, we have plenty of money saved and a good living situation that isn’t to expensive. So we can survive until the worst part of the winter is over. I know a lot of people don’t have that option.
Which brings me to the final thing I wanted to write about. Up until this point I have mostly opted to focus on writing poems and fiction and avoid political topics. However I have a few ideas for posts around the 2020 election, and I think I’ll work on those. Don’t worry–it’s nothing really in your face. When it comes to politics I’ve always preferred to be a deep thinker and less of a reactionary (I’m no twitter rage poster). However, I still feel that I should warn people so they can be prepared. I’ll tag the post as political and maybe even make a blog category for it so people know what they are getting into before they read.
I could just make a political blog but–I already have to maintain Cryptix Monsters and the last thing I want is to have another Blog to worry about (this is just a hobby after all). Also I don’t think I’d be able to post enough to be able to maintain a political blog–I just don’t have enough content Idea’s outside of sharing news posts and things I agree with–which doesn’t make for very engaging or important content.
As things stand I think I’m ready for 2020 to be over. But there’s still a lot of living to get through before that happens….
My mind cannot comprehend,
Something as simple as what I am.
My perception bends and brakes,
And then mends.
But still I cannot comprehend,
Something as simple as the totality of me.
Fragments of my whole being,
Is all I can conceive,
Of something as simple as me.
Dream on, Dream on, Until the break of dawn. It's okay to dream, Even when the world is dark and cold, Even when the stars remain mute, In the lightless sky. So Dream on, Dream on, Until the break of dawn, Until the sun rises again, Let your dreams be your light, Through the cold muted night.
With an extra mouth to feed my food supplies did not last for as long as I would have liked (Chain can eat a lot more than one would think at first glance). And we were forced to make our way back to the surface effectively cutting my explorations short. It was disappointing but things […]Crypt Deer
Like the breeze,
In this dream.
It's hard to say,
What it means,
When our paths meet.
But no matter your darkness,
No matter your light,
The breeze blows on,
In this dream.
The shadow of the creature,
Stands at the end of my bed,
Waiting for something,
Dark tail raised,
The time to strike is soon,
But for now--I go back to sleep.
Among the things I’ve found odd about Cryptix is where many of them live. While some do dwell with normal animals on the surface. Many can be found in the large network of tunnels that exist underground. None of these is odder then today’s topic, the Crypticat. Crypticat’s usually live in underground dungeons or more […]Crypticat — Cryptix Monsters
