Pulling in the reins... and Pookas

Nighttime purrs, luscious and lollipop-lickable Kittens... rainy, cloudy on the tame prairie today... yep and soft rumbling, the Kougaress is pulling in the reins and getting more writing done... not so much promo stuff... besides, the yen is to be in her writerly cave, right now.

Remember Harvey, the huge white ‘invisible’ rabbit in the movie, Harvey? Being an oldie goldie, yes, moi well remembers Harvey because he made quite a fanciful impression. Well, the subject of Pookas came up... and, it turns out, Harvey is a Pooka... although, more often, it’s an odd black horse from the fae realm with the ways of a trickster, especially when it comes to those who are inebriated. Of course, if you have tendency to end up in ditches, drunk on your ass, then passed out... why not blame it on a Pooka?

Anyhoo... boo! Moi did an internet search and found a lovely site ~ bellaterreno.com/art/default.aspx ~ devoted to myth. But, who knew looking up info on Pookas would lead to this saying, found at the bottom of the page?


"It does not require a majority to prevail,
but rather an irate,
tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds."

Samuel Adams - Founding Father

Here’s the description they provide about the site ~

The Magic of Myth

Mythology provides a greater context for our personal dramas, rites of passage for young people becoming members of their tribe or community, and guidance through life events based on the collective experience of those who have gone before us. While modern society promotes faster and more widespread communication, technology, and information, the study of mythology has been lost in the shuffle. For those of us that rejected our parents' conventions and rituals (they were rendered incomprehensible to us by the scientific --industrial -- atomic age) we must nonetheless admit that living without a functional mythos has added to the chaos of the modern world.

My, oh my... THOSE NUMBERS keep on ‘getting’ moi! 2:12 am ... 2:22 am... 3:33 pm... 4:44 pm... and this Big Cat author has to say Volcano’s Angelic Forecasts have been eerily on target.

Now What?
by Pat Cunningham

Now that my latest WIP is finished and no longer IP, I find myself wondering what I should work on next. At this point in the process I usually go through my notebooks and plot lists or haul abandoned pages out of the closet to see if anything hits.
Please... if you love your animals, your pets, click on over to ~ chipmenot.com ~ YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO ABOUT THE SAFETY OF THESE CHIPS ~ Here’s what they are saying on this site.

Animals are dying from microchip implants!

Don't let your pet be next.

This site is dedicated to the brave animals who have passed away from microchip implants. The corporations that market these products know the risks, but have hidden them from the public.

We're here to set the record straight.

Weekly Angelic Forecast from Volcano

Straight from the Carnal Cherub himself...

Angelic Forecast ~ #110


For the following week and for the following month, economic matters will enter another tailspin. On the world stage the rhetoric around the world’s economic problems will be all about fear and about the solution to fear. Believe none of it. It is merely for your consumption and does not deal with the underlying truth.

This week the sword of truth will strike like lightning several times. This will occur globally as well as on a personal level. The human community is entering a time when not only will the days jet by, but an entirely ‘new awareness’ arrives.

To bring about this ascendency of humanity’s soul, the truth must be faced and dealt with. This will be particularly noticeable in your relationships and in all of your interactions with others. Wherever ‘the truth’ shows up, greet it as a friend. Getting through the situation may be difficult, however love is on your side at this time. More than ever before, love will shine a path for you.

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...

Part 652 ~

Sylva certainly couldn’t resist Marina’s warm enthusiastic hug, and returned it with her own. Once they’d separated, Marina held her hand between both of hers. “I’ll bet yer hungrier than a bear after winter.” Sylva couldn’t help but flash back to the bear-man, Bear Feather, as he’d eaten berries. She blinked, then nodded and smiled. “Course, you’re probably darn worn out,” Marina continued on. “Don’t worry, we’ll settle down to some vittles, then let you and my dear brother get some shut eye.” Swinging beside her, Marina wrapped her arm around Sylva’s shoulders, and guided her toward the hangar’s exit.

Zeke kept his eye on Sylva and his sis as he and Grant trailed after them. “When you get a hankerin’ to talk let me know just what the hell happened at the Center.” Grant spoke in his easy way, but underlying his tone was the need to know. Zeke knew it was for all the right reasons. Grant meant to protect his wife, the ranch and all those he loved. And he wanted information. “Strange as Halloween don’t cover it,” Zeke offered. “I’m dang for certain dad will have a family confab, once he gets his thoughts sorted out.”

Aah, I would dearly love to visit my writerly cave one of these days...perhaps things will settle down soon and I can head back that way. :)

Cool stats from Siren!

Savanna Kougar said...

Serena, sending good 'cave' vibes your way!

Yeah, Siren is definitely a growth company. I hope it continues, and also continues along a good path. ~knock on wood~ Diana, overall, has been very responsible in how she handles and promotes Siren's growth. And I truly appreciate it!
