Woke up anxious this morning, for no good reason. In the dream that I woke up from, I had been running through a field with the healing angel (I think this comes from his telling me about running with the tall one, and how that made him feel like he was flying), but we came to these bighorn sheep who were all fallen down... as if struck by bighorn sheep flu. They were attached to carts that they were supposed to pull, like donkeys. I was worried about them, but then some man said that look, they were actually simply mechanical--there was a slot in them for the money, and if you put the money in, then they'd get up. My subconscious's way of trying to solve the problem and make the sheep be not sick?

I saw the black squirrel on my walk this morning, and discovered a great, egg-shaped stone that I sat on for a while.

A few days ago, we all watched a VERY SCARY Dr. Who double episode (current Dr. Who, not one of the old ones). It was on a DVD that Wakanomori's sister sent us--good thing he knows a hack that lets us watch British DVDs. The episodes were called, I think, "The Empty Child" (parts one and two). They featured semi-zombies in gas masks, which, coincidentally enough, the tall one had just remarked, earlier that day, were one of the most scary things ever invented (gas masks, not zombies). I remember thinking, "scarier than poisonous gas?"--but they were certainly scary in these episodes. There were a lot of interesting plot twists, and it all worked out magnificently in the end. (As the Doctor said, "today, everyone is saved!"--or something like that; maybe he said, "today, everyone is cured.") The cure scenes were very Nausicaa-esque, with flecks of light doing the healing.

It's funny, though: even when you see how it all works out, you're still left with the scared feeling. We all had to do something else for a while before going to sleep, so as not to have bad dreams. No one did have bad dreams, I'm happy to report.

Some of the forest creatures found the music from Laputa and downloaded it. (I hope this is legal.) I came home yesterday grumpy from a lot of driving, and they wanted to play something for me, and I was unwilling and had to be dragged over... and then it turned out to be the Laputa music, and it just brought tears right to my eyes, it's so lovely. So, I told them thank you for making me listen! Amazing how something like that can change your mood. I got lots of nice hugs at that moment, too--from Little Springtime and the tall one. And the ninja girl looked as if maybe she had tears in her eyes, too--I think music has that effect on her, maybe? (Not sure what the healing angel was doing just then.)

1. Tom, that icon kicks ass.

2. Asakiyume, I adore your posts. They are lovely beyond belief. And, for the record, squirrels are my favorite animals, especially the black ones. How lucky you are! I only see them up north.

I agree about Tom's icon. I love that dancing milk carton! And I'm so glad you like my posts! I have fun writing them, and I *really* have fun because now I have this invisible world of interesting friends, who write tanka and quote St. Augustine and make up very interesting "Away" messages on their IMs.

I love squirrels too. I've only ever seen about four black ones in my life, so I'm glad that there's one now that lives near me.

Come to think of it, I don' think I've ever seen a black squirrel. We just have the gray kind.

Also, a quick look at your user info shows no IM info, yet you mention Amanda's "Away" message? Hmmm.....holding out on some info?

Yes--they're very resilient. Thanks for asking!
