Losing Time; Gaining Inspiration

Where did November go? I swear I just started it.

This is a huge problem for me, quite often. I just…lose time. It’s like being abducted by aliens. I look at the clock and it’s two; I look again and it’s ten. I’ve lost eight hours to…I don’t even know.

And it stretches on, into months. I swear it was November 1st only yesterday. My poison incident? Surely that was only a few days ago. No, really, Thanksgiving was just a few hours past, it can’t have been longer ago than that.

But no, it’s only my faulty memory; time has gone, and I stand wondering what on earth I did with it.

Well, I know I wrote 61,000 words in NaNoWriMo. I didn’t actually finish the novel, for reasons that will go un-ranted about for now. But I did win NaNo, and my winner’s shirt is on its way to me.

I also caught up on my reading. Blogs, that is. Those of you I follow may notice a bunch of new likes from me on your months-old posts. Sorry. I’m a slow-ass.

Catching up on blog reading has left me open to reading new posts as they crop up, and I wanted to share one with you that…I don’t know. It touched me. In a good way.

It’s a poem by Magaly Guerrero of Pagan Culture, and I can’t get it out of my head. It’s sweet and spicy; it’s like a warm cup of coffee with cinnamon and nutmeg in it, steaming upwards on a crisp fall day.

And I find it inspires me. Maybe it will inspire you, too.

Rice and Coffee Poesy.

  1. I’ve been wondering the same thing about October and November. I swear the time has been flying… I know that a lot has gotten done these last eight weeks, but still, time seems to fly. I’m hoping December is a be more patient… and 2013, too.

    So glad you were touched by Rice and Coffee Poesy, for it come straight from my witchy heart ;-)
