10 Words Only


Love’s slow death, is a cancer I can’t live without.

        1. You’re welcome Simon. The weekend has been great so far, no complaints. The weather has been outstanding, a total beach scene, the surf has been excellent. Fortunately the wind has been blowing off-shore in the mornings. All’s good. What about you? Have you had a fun weekend?

  1. BB’s photo goes perfectly with your “Love’s slow death…”. As does Jack White. Two favorites of mine to compliment beautifully your words. Love the quote too. A Mia post is always a treasure, thank you. Have a great evening my friend. ❤

    1. Thank you, you’re so very kind! I also thought BB was a good photo choice, glad you got the 10 words, ha-ha! 🙂 Yay, Jack White, whoa his lyrics are crazy in such a good way, he is able to strip emotion down to the bone. Yes definitely a Mia post, thank you for that! Again, I have to agree with you on the quote, good old Zelda Fitzgerald, such a happy person, ha-ha! 😉 But look who she was married to, laughing! I’m so pleased that you put all the pieces together, kind of a puzzle as always. Wishing you the very best evening, always! ❤

    1. Thank you so much Alan! For some strange reason I’m really enjoying writing these, “10 Words Only”, things. I can’t tell you why, all I know for sure, is that it will pass as everything does. I hope you’re enjoying your week, so good to see you. Please be well.

  2. So many thoughts are bouncing off my cortex right now.. The smoke’s rope too light, to illusive to be able to end what one wants to. The knowledge of the end coming, yet the resolve of not to abandon half way.
    Such a wonderful work you have presented for my eyes to feast.
    May you have an enjoyable night. (I hope they are cooler than your days. Our days have been beach weather, hot and dry, with a bit of wind.)
    Love!! ❤ Dajena

    1. Thank you Dajena, for such a wonderful comment. This is packed with the obvious and not to so obvious. Somehow I think you always know what’s between the lines. There’s no hiding anything from you. 😉

      Thank you I expect it to be a lovely evening. Truthful it has been perfect, warm true, last night it really didn’t cool off at all, maybe tonight we’ll get an ocean breeze. Wishing you a wonderful evening, enjoy the lovely weather. Sending my love, Mia ❤

    1. Thank you Staci. You know I think I’m really starting to enjoy these “10 words only” things. It’s a challenge to confine yourself, set limitations and see if you can still create an idea or paint a picture with such a minimal amount of words. Hard to critique your own work, so I’m delighted that you found it effective. Thank you again. I hope all is well with you and your family and you are enjoying the weekend. ~ Mia ❤

Well I commend you, presenting yourself quite well, practice makes perfect. That’s what they say!

    1. Darn, you’re on to me. Well let’s just go with the program anyway. I always encourage all my patients to meditate. You’re not alone, we all have a long way to go, a long way to fall and a steep uphill climb back to the top. That’s why I can offer YOU the best psychiatric care available for the low price of… how much do you have?

      Guess where my office is? But of course, Hollywood! No shit, I lived there for years. This little bit of information is my gift to you, I never self-promote, I have a handler for that, but I will make an exception because I hope you will laugh, also I need more clients.

      Hope Saturday afternoon finds you in the same condition!

  7. Well, if that’s the case, book me an appointment as soon as possible! We have some talking to do. I met old HW and he WAS indeed very long. Therefore, if he was your mentor we must have met.
    Were you there on that infamous tripping trip to Nova Scotia?
    That was a supremely silly time, if I recall.
    What name did you go by then?
    My name was Garibaldi Springingtoe back then. I was half Chinese/ half water rat.
    Fun times.

    1. Penciling you in right now. He was indeed! Indeed! Indeed! I believe we did, however you were forever referring to me as “that White Russian”. I did allow you to walk on my back though, during which time I stole your qi! After which you became quite limp and lifeless. Ah, my precious water rat thank goodness our paths have crossed again!

  8. YAY! the road to discovery starts here! haha
    that’s because you were constantly drunk and insisted that i use double cream in your shots.
    I had to move to china shortly afterwards to recharge. You, by all accounts were sick because my qi was too strong for your system.
    We should find HW’s reincarnation and go back to Nova S for the week, to see what trouble we could get into!

    1. Oh yes, let’s return to Nova Scotia, we can celebrate the road to discovery, in fact REDISOVERY! How else do you make a Black Russian White? Double shots and double cream! You said you tended bar in life number 37. Please don’t encourage me to eat the mushrooms this time. I’ll have you know that’s why I was sick, just a bad trip, not because of your qi, which was delicious by the way with the Brie. What ever shall we do if we can’t locate HW’s reincarnation? Should we just advertise for a long fellow to join us? Lastly, are you recharged?

        Nooooo! I bended tar in my 37th!
        It’s not your fault you misheard, you were off your tits on shrooms again! Kept going on about the spirit realm and how I should blend more drinks in a Wellington boot to see if the queen would certify it as legal tender. And that was a quiet night!!
        No! We dig up his bones and reanimate him! I think he would like that.
        Lastly?! That should have been the first question! I shan’t answer due to the very pertinent point!
        Now get the thick socks on, we have camels to ride!
        Or is it raccoons? I always mix the two up!

        1. Oh, I see because I was out of order now you are going to be difficult again. So here is where we have the inventory discussion AGAIN, first in first out, FIFO, or last in first out, LIFO. There’s no difference other than cost per unit, and of course profit. The inventory is the same, so with this said, is it still pertinent?

          I did misunderstand, bending tar, how embarrassing, it has been a few life times, so I think I should get a pass on that one. Actually, I thought I was on my tits while on the shrooms! Obviously you remember far better than I do, you were mixing the drinks. I have no recollection of a Wellington boot or otherwise. Hmm, a little disturbing.

          Oh yes, let’s do the re-animator thing. Which way do you want to do it? Necromancy or with the green stuff? Socks ready, silly camel have humps, raccoons just scratch the shit out of you!

  9. Who’s been difficult? I’m only saying we could invite Bob hope and make a film out of it.
    Of course, we’d need to reanimate him too and that dancing one!!
    Piffle!! We’ve got our work cut out for us!!
    I do like the perkiness of the inventory though!
    I’ll let the tar palaver slip…this time.
    Great! You can before cowell with me!!
    Necromancy allll the way! I’ll dig out my Crowley books!
    Reaaaally?! Humps, you say? Well well. And raccoons actually scratch the shit clean out of you?? That would save a lot of time in the morning! Although toilet time does gift me peace to read. Pros and cons.

    1. How appropriate this poem is titled, “Enough Rope”. Have I given myself enough?

      This is tuning into a regular party, the kind we had all the time. Let’s round up all the bags of bones and raise them all together at the same time, imagine the surprised look on their faces, right? Hell yeah, get the Crowley Books, a better thought, get him too. He is quite the partier, oh yeah and the accent is to die for, well almost. Perkiness of the inventory, hey baby, I’m all plastic, they stand on me *double wink*! Oh fuck, I’m laughing so hard, the line read, “raccoons just scratch the shit out of you”, the KEY word being, YOU! Yes, truly a fun and funny world we spin in.

        Or did you mean all the names we mentioned. Because even that’s a task. But feasible, given our qi and alcohol levels.
        Crowley would be a rare pal to have. Why not!

    1. Great the puzzle pieces are together, set the dinosaur aside. We don’t want to do the entire Jurassic Park thing. I do, I do have the book, there is some sort of cautionary tale written up about using phase two. I think we should carelessly dismiss it and deliberately move on anyway.
