Sharon over at her blog, Watermark, posts the most wonderful photos of cats and other animals. I go over there and am always refreshed and lightened and made happier. She says she's become "nonverbal" and that description is fitting for me too. I don't want to trade barbs or witticisms or reach these pinnacles of academic articulation that are so necessary for a participant in the forums & lists I've joined. Often lately I've wondered why I read them because the atmosphere seems out of joint with my -- what? Hardly my poetics as I've not developed anything like that. Perhaps it's just the constant introduction of a provocative comment... something dropped with the intention of creating a stir, which is really nothing more than someone wanting people at each other's throats. I don't get it. I really don't get why people just don't play nice.
Oh ... Rose might tell me that Mercury's retrograde, and that all communication is f*cked up at the moment.
