Not really. My mother said that when she was a girl in Bethel, there was native kids running outside in t-shirts in 30 degree weather. Although I have been known to wear sandals and no jacket in the middle of December.


EDIT: I forgot to mention that I made a Barrow-Downs mug to drink tea, in art class. I assign that to the Shire!

For those of us who feel life is too short ...

I heard this poem at a thing I went to on Saturday and thought it was wonderful and will pass it on:

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better,
to paint a picture or write a letter,
bake a cake or plant a seed,
ponder the difference between want and need?

Dust if you must, but there's not much time,
with rivers to swim and mountains to climb,
music to hear and books to read, friends to
cherish and life to lead.

Dust if you must, but the world's out there
With the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
A flutter of snow, a shower of rain.
This day will not come around again.

Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go - and go you must -
You, yourself, will make more dust!

I'd like to assign the sound of rain, it's quite lovely, especially that tapping sound against the window. Nature music is wonderful.

I assigned brushtail possums to Orthanc a few weeks ago... but now I think I have t assign them to the Shire– at least, the mother-and-child pair who live in the wall behind our stove. They come out at night to eat leftover catfood, plus any fruit I give them. Since their initial running-amok, they've been extraordinarily clean, quite and well-behaved. This is very un-possum like; I think they're trying to keep their new source of food a secret from the other possums.

The "baby" (half-grown, actually) is very friendly– he eats out of my hand and lets me stroke him*. (It only took me a day to tame him).

I fear for the future, though– the cat pretends to be asleep when they're around, but I believe she's biding her time until she can get the little one alone. When I say "possum" to her in the daytime she looks over at the stove and licks her lips...


*Or her. Hard to tell.

I assign newly hatched chickens (especially after the recent fox-raid and after we've taken some precautions for the future). Watching them is more fun than anything on TV. They've discovered the food bowl only a short time ago. One of them is sleeping in it right now.

Finally getting a job that is relevant for your education.

I am now employed by The Museum of Copenhagen! More specifickly in the picture archive.

What is less fun is that I was employed together with a guy named Sune. . . Very confusing for everybody else.

I assign– getting my results back and learning that I'm now the proud owner of a shiny new postgraduate degree. (Or will be after the award ceremony, anyway.)

I mean, I didn't really expect to fail, but it's still a relief to know I passed everything and it's all over!

Late afternoon/early evening thunderstorms (so long as you're not caught outside in the middle of one). I think the one going on right now may be one of the loudest I've experienced. Not to mention the heavy rain and wind. It's amazing.

Ditto this. I had the amazing experience of waking up in the middle of the night last night to the feeling of mist/rain spraying at me through my open window. Through a gap in the window shade, I could see heat lightening flickering. There's something about watching a storm from bed, in the dark.

Congrats Nerwen!

And a solar eclipse is cool! We had one in -90 and even if it was cloudy the sudden darkening of everything, the silence of the birds, the settling down of the wind... that was awesome!

Also I would assign to Shire a hearty onion soup made with time and care! And some Chablis to go down with it. Just perfect for a summer evening!

Bonding with unexpected family members over even more unexpected things. It shouldn't surprise me... I have a large family, and plenty of things to bond over...

But if I'd picked an aunt to end up talking to just about every day, it probably wouldn't have been this one. But that's quite all right with me.

Thumbs up

Silent Retreats.

Not only is silence golden, but being told that the RULE is to avoid the Internet is about the only effective way to stop me grumbling under my breath that it isn't working.

Besides all of which, I've been waiting two-three months to detox a bit after the summer.

~*~*~

Unrelatedly save in terms of time:

Weather cooling off and the smell of rain simultaneously.

I assign going to a Beatles Tribute Band tomorrow at the State Fair. I am sure that I will have a grand time. Though, I am not going with Laurinque, so that is saddening, but other than that, I get to have the best burgers in Alaska!

The incredibly soft and warm blanket I'm snuggled under which only cost me (or, rather, only cost my mom (thanks Mom!)) $4. It's green, too, which just makes it ten times more awesome.

There's nothing like cool nights combated with extreme coziness.

I assign listening to the LotR soundtracks for the first time in a long while. Concerning Hobbits reminded me of my early days on the Downs, which made me extremely happy. Those were simpler, more puerile days.
