Hey


[info]alafaye


I've been working on this one all month so I'm nearly done with it. On and off I've worked on my crochet projects so the purple-green one is close to ready. Naturally in time for spring, lol. But at least it'll be ready for next winter! But my brain hasn't had much space for anything except browsing tumblr and twitter so not as much progress as I did manage in the past months.

How's everyone else?

I posted a while back about looking for a Harry Potter game. Since we couldn't find anything, [personal profile] sparkysparky and I decided to start one. It's small and we tried it out for size before publicizing, but if you are looking for a thread based game on Insanejounal, you might want to check it out.

[info]hogwarts_mods. The game is set in the future where wizarding folks in the UK are all dead and Hogwarts starts bringing people back from the past.

Characters from all generations are welcome.

My YouTube feed just showed me the Josh Groban/Helene Fischer cover of "I'll Stand by You," a song that's inextricably tied to Snupin fandom for me (though, given how into hurt/comfort I was before I ever knew of fandom, yes, it pretty much belongs on any soundtrack . . .). I like Josh, but it isn't doing it for me -- like the Génération Goldman cover of "Là-Bas," it has a produced gloss that doesn't serve the song. This is more my speed:



Earlier today, I managed to talk myself out of splurging on a raised bed kit. (25% off is still 75% too much for my current bandwidth. I still have straw from three or four years ago to spread . . .) Today's docket includes writing a number of thank-you and get-well and GOTV cards, working on a catalogue about medieval Italian manuscripts, and drafting my last public Tupelo poem (my sponsors will be getting two more via email). I've been using holidays to keep the well primed, so tomorrow's poem could involve tooth fairies and small change, though right now I'm thinking more about scouse and soufflés.

Hi friends, I hope you're doing well. I am drowning in homework and I hate it. Here's a quick one for ya, when it popped up I thought I'd read it, but I am mistaken. Enjoy.



Country music star Beckett has always considered himself to be straight — but an unexpected kiss with Nicky, his best friend’s little brother, turns his whole world upside down…

birds and flowers bringing


[info]bronze_ribbons
So, between allergies and scratches and figurative kicks in the teeth and waking up hung over (which seemed profoundly unfair because it was one flute of prosecco during a retirement-party Zoom and one flute of vermouth after dinner, but apparently that's one digestif too many for my metabolism these days) and nearly putting antibiotic ointment instead of toothpaste on my brush -- well. Hello, dregs of February.

But I slogged through this, that, and more, so some deliverables got delivered, some reportables got reported, the house is cleaner, and I pulled together a lemon-rosemary-olive-panko-parmesan-macaroni thing for dinner. It was mild enough today to walk to the Little Free Library in sandals. There have also been three rabbit holes: One was the lore surrounding St. Matthias, in the course of pulling together twelve lines for tomorrow's Tupelo poem; I was also intrigued by the why and wherefore of coppices, but that didn't make it into the draft. (Today's contribution was 14 lines of dog-gerel, so to speak . . .)

The second was triggered by Sam's Tumblr post on Sargent's depiction of Robert Louis and Fanny Stevenson. What an intricate household that was. I did not know that Fanny and her daughter Isobel were both cougars (with the same writer-illustrator).

I have not watched this video of "Let Beauty Awake" in full yet, but even a few seconds . . .

The last is a current memory-melody worm: there's a Swedish cradle song in a 1957 textbook called Singing in Harmony that one of my elementary schools discarded when I was a kid. (The Commonwealth of Kentucky Public Instruction stamp inside the front cover has a line where one was supposed to indicate "White" or "Colored" . . .) The setting is similar to some Beethoven art-songs I'm fond of; the next-to-last measure particularly gets me, and I've played it several times today:

birds and flowers singing

Last night I looked up the composer and lyricist. There doesn't seem to be much online about W. Th. Söderberg (though the song got around enough to merit sheet music for mandolin and guitar -- published in Seattle . . .), but the author of the English words, one "Auber Forestier," turns out to have been the formidable Aubertine Woodward Moore, whose many roles included serving as music director of the First Unitarian Society of Madison, Wisconsin. (For some other day: she apparently gave Whitman season tickets she couldn't use and may have been on a first-name basis with Alcotts and Emersons and fiddlin' Bulls . . .)

Some things I miss:
  • dancing, including waltzing and being dipped

  • locking in tight harmonies with other singers

  • trying new-to-me bars and eavesdropping on / chatting with whomever at them

  • spur-of-the-moment visits to Cheekwood

  • hell, unplanned all-the-things

  • printing proofs without having to assess whether putting my personal printer through it is worth the expense/time/wear-and-tear

  • swimming

  • striding around downtown in tailored dresses and heels

  • Asheville, Philadelphia, and the Triangle

  • buying just enough meat and produce for a few days

  • ocean kayaking being a near prospect

  • same with the show I was cast in more than a year ago


  • Some things I have been enjoying:
  • working through the winter in pj bottoms and sheep slippers instead of tights and boots

  • making cards to send to voters and others

  • nattering with the BYM about horse categorization, Trixie Belden, and other nonsense

  • getting a better handle on passé composé (and becoming legendary in the process, ha!)

  • trying new-to-me recipes, including Fannie Farmer's Swedish bread


  • Swedish bread

  • needing less than one tank of gas per month

  • the Vagabond Tabby's Mother of Crows soap

  • the Christmas cacti and cyclamen, which are still producing blooms

  • shiny Innovation stamps


  • Some recent poems, at the 30/30 project:

  • "Tilting at Mushrooms," about Lowell labor organizer (and later Philadelphian) Sarah Bagley

  • "Clear," about languages I don't even remotely have a grip on

  • "Bounce," in memory of a choreographer and a theatre techie

  • "Tug," because I'm in Asheville and/or Princeton/Philadelphia most Februaries

  • "Twenty Seconds," prompted by a German pig-farming regulation

  • "Lightening Up," because Shrove Tuesday was nigh

  • "The Ides of February," because it was more interesting reading about Romans than trying to come up with something related to historical or festive events tied to the 15th

  • "As Cowards Remain, So Dumb and Grayer Gray," because I wanted to write something metrical, and Emily Dickinson's valentines are demented

    Back to work on the SG series :)


    [info]rushlight
    Checking in to say that things are finally settling down into an even keel again here at Casa Rushlight. Thank you to all of you who have continued to buy my books and support me in that way over this past year, and by spreading the word about how much you've enjoyed them to your friends. It's been an incredible help to me as I've been struggling through the financial insecurity and uncertainty of these past months due to the pandemic. Every single comment I've read or email I've received letting me know how my books have touched your lives has been treasured and lightened my spirits immensely. I can't tell you how much your support and encouragement have meant to me.

    Now that I'm feeling more stable and focused once again, I'm planning to get back to conquering my writing goals. The first one of those is to finish the new book in the Sacred Guardian series. Poor Kaori and Hunter have been languishing for far too long waiting for me to finish the final polishing of their story and get it out there for all of you to read. I'm planning to get started on tackling that this afternoon and intend to have a finished book ready to publish in the very near future.

    That being said, I think it would be in my best interests to start focusing on marketing the series once again, and hopefully picking up some new readers who might not have had an opportunity to read the earlier books yet. So look out for those notices as I will likely be planning some giveaways and other goodies as we move forward toward the publishing of book 4.

    If you aren't familiar with the series, you can find out all about it on my website here: bit.ly/SGseries

    Here is my latest promo graphic for the series to hopefully start getting you excited about it: :)

    Happy New Year


    [info]rushlight
    Happy New Year, everyone! Hoping you all got through the chaos and challenges of 2020 with a minimum of damage and are looking forward to getting a fresh start in the new year. I've been through my share of personal tragedy and challenges these past months, and am looking forward to the opportunity to take a breath and move forward again with my writing goals.

    This is going to be a quick entry because the chaos has not yet settled down entirely for me. I just wanted to check in, let you know I'm okay, and that I hope to be interacting more with you in the coming months. I'm looking forward to reconnecting with all of you. I miss my online community. :)

    Take care and stay safe. Much love to all!
