I have returned from the dead!!!

Maybe. Sort of.

Anyway, I just posted another book review write.beach.city/dragonque/boo

The dragon roared, spitting rings of fire, scales shimmering vibrant warning colors.

Undeterred, the tiny princess strode forward, dark tight curls bouncing about her head.

The dragon snapped at her.

"Enough!" she commanded.

The dragon's growls softened to a whine.

"Be nice to the healer and take your medicine."

The dragon complied dourly.

"Good, now we can go walkies."

The dragon perked up and followed after the princess gleefully.

The lump under the sheet moved slowly.

Its progress slowed further as kittens pounced on it. There was a distressed mew and I scooped up the trio of kittens, lifted the sheet, and dumped them on their now revealed sibling. They tumbled and rolled and waved their tiny paws in the air.

I allowed the sheet to drape over them and watched the lumps explore, when not interrupted by playful tackles.

I'd just have to finish making the bed later.

Food 

Hokkaido gourd soup with onions and assorted Mediterranean dumplings.

Plushie. Self portrait. 

This is Que, the squishable in disguise. When Que has to be around strangers, she pretends to be a dragon. When she is with people she trusts, she is her purry kitten self.

Book recommendation 

My Big River ebook wishlist is long and I sometimes scroll through it to see if anything goes on sale. I thought @pandora_parrot and @electroCutie might be interested in this. This book was recommended in my work’s professional development resource library. And I’ve read one of the author’s books on mindfulness and meditation (which I recommend).

Selfie. Eye contact. Plushie. 

Pusheenisaurus is my spirit animal.

I pick up the phone
To deal with one issue.
Talk for twenty minutes.

Breathe deep. Tick a list.
A direct knocks on my door.
“You got a minute?”

Answer a question.
Guide them to their own answers.
Make sure they get paid.

Check my phone one day.
Red circled numbers glare at me.
It’s the weekend. No.

1/2

I live an oddly charmed life.

I attribute it to the fact one parent had been blessed by a grateful fairy king... and one had been rude to a sorceress disguised as a waitress, and thus cursed. They'd learned their lesson since but... sometimes magic just sinks into your juices, as it were.

And it's had an interesting affect on my luck.

As I was shaking out a pair of pants I'd worn the day before, a dirty sock became dislodged.

"Is it spring yet?"

"No."

"How about now?"

"No."

"Now?"

"Still no."

"You'll tell me when it starts though, right?"

"Of course."

The dryad's daughter yawned and snuggled back under her blanket of moss, eager spring blooms already sprouting in her hair.
"I just don't want to miss it, it's my first one!"

Her mother chuckled, vast and tall, thick oaken arms wrapping around her, "I know. You won't miss it. You'll hear it sing to you."

Thought: haiku are fun
Terse writing with free structure
The beat: everything


Step one, two, three, four
Sing one two three, four five six
Internal music


Walk: point A to B
To the beat of mental drums
Step 1 2 3 4
