Dark moon rising 6.6.13

D: A I don’t feel very good about this.

A: Superstitious? You?

D: Um, A – I traveled through time; discovered that the Tuatha Dé Danann were real, lived actual myths and created a few of my own. You have to ask?

A: I know, but it really isn’t anything – it’s not a full 666 and I don’t think 13 is unlucky. It has a 3! We like 3s.

D: And the dark face of the moon this week? That means nothing to you?

A: I like new moons. It’s a good time to shed your skin.

D: You defy reason, A. That is a whole lot of little things piling up into one great big thing. And you have a black cat.

A: Isis is about as threatening as a teddy bear, unless you don’t feed her. Then she’s likely to gnaw your face off in the night.

D: Did you feed her?

A: Um…

D: Ohmygodsweareallgoingtodie!

A: Hahahahahahahaha!

D: That is not funny, A.

A: Oh, yes it is, D.

A’s telling the tale today, Baby!

While D hides in the corner (I resent that!), I’m taking over the tale-telling. Don’t tell D, but I just made all that up. It was fun, too!

Here is some numerology on today for you, courtesy Matrix/Astrologyland; I think it’s’ lovely:

Today is a “9”.  A day to see the larger picture, think deeply and freely. Play in the realms of philosophy and spirit. It’s also a good day for travel and learning. It is a good day to enjoy poetry, music and the arts. Be tolerant of others.

D: You are a dirty, rotten liar, A. I’ll get you for this. (And my little dog too? You’re mocking me. Yup.) Congratulations are in order! A Room of His Own, A True Story of One Cat, on The Community Storyboard, has been Freshly Pressed. This is wonderful news. The story is touching and a beautiful example of the lengths we will go for our animals.

A: It’s Thursday! That means another installment of Harry Steinman’s Marketing/Self-Publishing Series at Readful Things Blog. Today, he discusses Kickstarter.

“If you want to protect them, protect what is left of that timeline. Make sure they are safe; hide them if you must. He will take action, and there are still some who will support him.”

She was giving him leave to go, but Dubh hesitated. He stood before the door and gazed back at her. Underneath her warnings, she was talking about revolution. Nuada was king, emperor, god of Tir na nOg, and there had been peace for a thousand years. There were rules governing the travelers, rules that had once been just. However, if what Niamh was saying was true, then perhaps it was time. If Nuada had sent Sean and Maureen to 1916 . . . well, then it was time.

  1. I really enjoy how A and D play off each other. do you ever start talking to yourself in real life like they talk to each other here? lol


    1. Well….! 🙂 My best friend made a very good observation: “Katie, the beauty of this blog is that everyone is going to think you’re joking.” These conversations happen in real time, all the time – usually just in my head, unless of course I’m onto something really clever – then everyone gets to hear me crack myself up.


      1. HeeHee! My dad says that as a writer you are never alone. You always have your characters to talk to and they seem to enjoy talking back! 🙂


      2. Me too! I had the cast of Star Wars to keep me company as a child, actually: they were my imaginary friends. Wanted to be Indy when I grew up, thought I was Dorothy but wanted to be Scarlet. I didn’t start making up my own people until I was 12 or 13! 🙂


  2. 13 is only unlucky if it is a “floor” of a hotel or some such (and many places just leave that floor out – but if you ask me that just makes floor 14, the same as 13, I mean… seriously how do you leave out an entire floor?!?)
    Or if it happens to fall on a Friday… otherwise, 13 is golden *grins* (not that I buy into it, but it sure is fun!!!)


    1. I always get confused when they do that in hotels. I have problems enough with numbers and keeping them straight! The idea of all the superstitions coming together on a Thursday gave me a giggle!


    1. Some thing it is – something to do with the last supper and Judas, or a marketing ploy for some movie… Something I read once attributed it to the lunar cycles – there are 13 of those in a year. I saw all the numbers together in the date and all the superstitions that came to mind made me laugh. This was the result!
