This month I don't know how much writing I will be getting done. It has been a rough one. On February 1st my father-in-law, Nicholas von Hoffman passed away. Three years from February 6th my mother-in-law, Ann C. Byrne, passed away. I am also dealing with a very elderly (she is eighteen) and declining cat, and I don't think I can really take another bit of bad news this month. Then there is the looming conflict of a government shutdown. I don't think anyone can really handle that if it happens, and the likely hood of it seems very high.
It almost feels like the entire United States is in chaos and covered in a blanket of bad. With the government idiocy, the rampant flu, and the ups and downs of the stock market, I look to the future and wonder if even next month will be relaxing, or tomorrow. When can we breathe? When can we relax? I'd like to relax.
And so I am trying, I am watching the television show THE EXORCIST. It is much more interesting than I thought it would be. There are a lot of things going on in it, possessions, priests failing their vows, priests and nuns doing more than what you thought they would, horrific and horrifying homicides, organ removal, savage and sensual sex, and young girls who may or may not continue living. There is so much going on and it seems to be moving towards an apocalypse of epic proportions, and to be honest, it is also a great distraction from all of the things going on in actual life. I am a little surprised at how much gore and violence there are in this, only because it is a FOX television show, but then I think back to HANNIBAL (I still wish it had kept going) and I'm not as surprised. If you haven't watched either of these, I highly recommend both shows.
And now off to do stuff for the day job... Oh if only I could be a full-time, well-paid, author....or have a really great sugar daddy who only wanted company not sex.
