Most unfortunate

Yesterday I had an encounter with another ignorant local. As usual these yodels come right up on the land and mention how they really wanted to buy it, as though that alone gives them some right to it, though curiously the house lay untouched on the market for at least a year and while overpriced, it was not that difficult to get the sellers to lower the price, even dealing with richies like ourselves.

This man seemed indignant about the fact that we had bought this property and had no animals on it. He wanted to lease our land, a no, and then to sell us horses. I detest horses, really. Everyone around us is a freak for them and I don't understand them, I don't understand this culture. Really it has me asking some quite upheaving questions lately.

Sigh, more later.

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.
