Just a little poetry

Veiled in shadows
Obscured from the world.
A single voice screaming in pain,
No one hears.

Face damp with tears
They all assume that she's okay.
She goes through the motions
thinking things she'll never say

She smiles when they do
She hides her innermost secrets
All the time she's screaming with a pain
that she cannot explain.

~ ~

Words are meaningless
Until they are put together in a certain way
We put associations to a phrase
Make it mean something
To another it is still empty
A jumble of letters to represent a word, a feeling
Meaning is given by human thought
Words have no meaning before

'T'is the season to forget our road rules

tra la la la la la la

So, I'm not the most Xmas-sy person. I tend to pull away from the tree and wreaths because I don't spend a lot of time at home during the season. I'm spending time with family.
During the two weeks leading up to Xmas, I get up early and go to the supermarket before the Xmas car park craziness begins. Of course, when I leave, I'm surrounded by it. There are the parking vultures who tend to follow you from the sidewalk to your car, park a reasonable distance away until you pull out so they can get your park or even worse, those that pull up as you unpack your groceries into the car and ask you if you'll be moving soon because they really want your car park because walking that extra couple of metres is just too hard.
In the afternoon it's worse. People forget that they have an indicator on their car next to their steering wheel and that it should be used when you're trying to change lanes. The other day I was almost sideswiped twice because people didn't know how to use those switches and just expected to be let through.
It's just one day of the year when it comes down to it.
One day, but we all tend to treat it like the world will end because on that one day not many supermarkets will be open... Independent ones can choose to or not I believe.

That being said though, I do wish all my readers a happy and safe holiday season. Enjoy yourselves, eat too much food, play backyard cricket if the sun is out, hug the family and be safe on the road out there. I'm not kidding when I write that there are some serious morons out there.

You know you're on your way when...

You know you're on your way to making it big on a local scale when your local library has not one, but four copies of your book on their shelves at their different branches across the city. Now I just need people to borrow it, read it and want to buy it :)

Books are also available to purchase locally at Collins Booksellers (previously Book City)on Armstrong St, Ballarat

One Girl Starts All over and thinks who we are

One Girl Revolution:
"And I'll be everything that I want to be... I am confidence and insecurity"
Sometimes I feel like it. I'm constantly thinking of ways to make change, to fix the world, to lessen the pain of not only myself, but others too. My problem is I dream big, see the wider picture, but then there's not much that I can do to make people hear/ read my words if they don't want to. I can't force the change I want to see happen on my own.

Start all over:
"... commit or not commit is such a crazy time"
So with that in mind, i am taking a step to the side to focus on ME, and what I want, right now, for my life. I want to go to TGSS (national roller derby event). This means I need work. The kind that pays on a regular basis. The reviews might get me there, but I've worked out that I need to do about five a month to get there and pay accommodation without paying for pass to get into event

Who we are:
"There's so much more to me than meets the eyes"
I'm being pulled into different directions. Most people only see what they want to see, the surface me because it's easier. they aren't looking for the complex underlayers that might feel conflicted by what they're trying to tell me.

By the way. For the rest of this month, I am working on the witch story. I even have a massive stack of non fiction books to go through for the research.
