I became insane with long intervals of horrible sanity.
Edgar Allen Poe
The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.
- H. L. Mencken
Many people would sooner die than think; In fact, they do so
What I have been telling you, from alpha to omega, what is the one great thing the sigil taught me — that everything in life is miraculous. For the sigil taught me that it rests within the power of each of us to awaken at will from a dragging nightmare of life made up of unimportant tasks and tedious useless little habits, to see life as it really is, and to rejoice in its exquisite wonderfulness. If the sigil were proved to be the top of a tomato-can, it would not alter that big fact, nor my fixed faith.

Now I'm in a bad sleep pattern. I was up half the night then slept till almost 11. I did get to finish the episode of Game of Thrones I started and I got a jump on reading the New York Times but that's now how I want to do that. I will try and break the pattern tonight.
Part of the problem is loneliness. I have not had a conversation with anybody since Tuesday. It's not like this is unusual either. That's pretty much what my life is. Sometimes I run into people at a show otherwise I'm alone. I hate when I get stretches like that. Of course I'm going to an honest to god party today. Oh I promised to not talk about it. OK so there goes that topic of discussion. I'll find out if I can write about it tomorrow.
Yesterdays' big adventure was doing laundry. I have clean clothes! That is sort of exciting. I seem to be missing a lot of t-shirts. I'm looking at where I keep them and it looks like it's only three quarters full. That’s' disturbing. I know I always lose socks. I had our unmatched ones this time.
I was sitting here trying to figure out what to write. As you can probably pick up I'm depressed and I don’t like writing about being depressed. I strayed over to Facebook and discovered that Maura Kennedy had posted a new video. I watched it. It made me feel better. So I'll share that with you.
Watching that made me think of Georges Méliès and his groundbreaking early films
I have been watching one after another. Just search for his name on Youtube.
OK. Now I have to rush and get ready for the party I'm not allowed to talk about.
