Coffee makes life so much better

Let me not omit that from my life again, especially in January.

Reading "Prisoner of the Stone Tower" by Sarah Ash. I am truly enjoying it as I have not enjoyed a book in a while. Last night reading was the main event for me. It is such a comfort to have something good and long that I feel like reading on cold, dark winter evenings.

I am anxious to finish the others I am reading so I can move on. I really want to start on Emma and Cranford.

I have really been struggling with everything about myself. Who I am, what I look like, what I enjoy doing. I am clueless about all of the above. I am going to put it down and just start reading. Those other things don't really matter.

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.
