Allerleirauh, notes

  • It is noted that of course no one else in the land has golden hair.
  • Both kings are brutish to the Princess.
  • Evidently her betrothed does not know her very well, has only seen her a couple of times if he's not sure it's her.
  • Her way of putting little objects in his soup is strange.
  • She notes at every meeting that he throws his boots at her head. It seems she's determined to draw his complete attention and show him her power.
  • All the same, she is obviously seeking his protections only. She's aware of his ill-treatment of her as a servant.
  • His "love" for her is forceful and brutish.

Burke Cemetery

This cemetery was near Waterside. We wandered there after dinner. The first, and oldest, grave, mentioned in the historical marker.

Studying with Dolls

In the afternoons, I usually take my laptop or a book to the bed and study, and a doll for company. Gertrude is sitting on my bed desk. I got her in 2015 from the Korean doll company Dollmore. She's a "Flocke" sculpt. Willow is sitting with my headphones. She's made by the Chinese company Angel of Dream. I got her in 2013. She's a "Qing" sculpt.
Two older entries I edited tonight re-posted today's date. However, the original month/year is still visible in the permalink. Looking back on the past often makes me cringe, especially when I remember my own behavior. However, re-reading these entries makes me feel the past is accessible in the sense that I am still holding on to many of the same dreams and desires. This week, for comps, I read two early gothics, James Hogg's The Private Memoir and Confessions of a Justified Sinner , and Charles Brockden Brown's Edgar Huntly; or, a Sleep-Walker , which were very much along the lines of the books that absorbed me from 2005-2007, most of which I read on my Treo from Project Gutenberg. Looking back upon my interests and desires of that time sustains me now, when I have to tap into my reserves every day to keep reading.
