thoughts and feels and thoughts and feels [userpic]

A long walk, long and cold - long and cold enough to find myself stricken with wonder at everything in the half-light that I'd never seen or noticed before. One cannot really know a town, I don't think, without having walked all through it. I know Fayette, and Glasgow. I don't know Springfield at all. Herm. Food for thought.

There are things I want very much to ask, but do not know if I dare say. The answer I suspect would be bad. The alternative answer would be even worse. But having asked them, I think, would be the best of all.

And the perennial question rears its head again: how much would you give up if you had the chance at the one thing you want most?

Current Mood: thawing


Drat, I'm just way too curious, so typically I just ask - although I do my best to couch questions inoffensively if they're the sort of question. I'm notoriously bad at not letting things go when I'm confused, to the point of sometimes making people really upset with me, but generally I let people know that it's cool to NOT answer if that's what they want.

What would I give up? Not much, particularly my privacy, free speech, stuff like that. Then again, what I want tends to revolve around those two areas, so beyond that I'm fairly low maintenance.

Sure, piles of case might be nice - but I would literally have to take a look at a list of options before trading for it, and I drive a vicious bargain.

Night-walking: Almost the best ever. Night fell running: So close! Night wargames with running and sneaking: Now I'm happy.

Now then, when I was a student in high school we had a teacher who explained that ever person had an interior editing voice, the voice that made us pause in our writing and go back to change a word here and there. He wanted us to ignore this voice when writing for particular exercises - I was at a loss. Zero interior editing voice.

One might almost say I'd consumed it.

Alas, the name applied to this editing voice was Herm, and when I read your entry I was eating, so I got hot curried sausage up the back of my nose. Drat, how do I get this food for thought back out?

See, now I'm going to ask: What's this thing you're considering daring asking? (See, and you don't have to answer that.)

Re: Asking.

Well, there are some things that I don't think I could give up even if I wanted to - they're simply too much a part of me.

Not much running was done tonight but a considerable amount of sneaking was - some for my own personal entertainment, and some because while I was standing in the cemetary a friendly local law enforcement agent rolled by in a squad car and directed the Beam o' Death in my general direction. So I pretended I was a headstone, and some minutes later he drove away. But I continued sneaking. Sneaking is good practice. For sneaking.

I do hope the back of your nose is none the worse for wear, at least in the long run.

The question in question, as it were, is one probably only hours younger than humankind. However, we as a Modern and Developed Species have of course made simple things unnecessarily complicated, but seeing no way to extricate myself from these complications at the moment renders me quiet on this point. Also, it involves the culpability of persons probably familiar to some on the flist. So the matter shall remain so vague, until such time should come when it no longer is.

Have just mentally diagrammed the last clause of that second sentence. Great fun.

Re: Asking.

Ah, people stuff. Wegh. I'm officially not a people person. They ALL baffle me.

Diagrammed the... augh... hurting.

Re: Asking.

wow... I had never held that diagraming stuff in my memory. I know what the stuff is, and that much is internalized. If it doesn't sound right to me, its probably wrong.

Re: Asking.

I only do because it's so systemmatic - there are really only three things you have to remember: what goes on the line, what sticks off the line at an angle, and what sticks off the angles on another line.

I certainly don't use it to see if my sentences are correct. It's too easy to fudge ;P

you're very contemplative lately, luce. hope you find what you're looking for.

Eventually, eventually. Thanks. :)
