Clairsentience

One thing I learned in the Enchanted Diary is that I am clairsentient. It is a nice way of saying that I am too easily affected by other people's moods and can get too involved in their business. I think this is true, and I think it's also true that I can sense the moods and presences of things that aren't even people, and I've been experiencing that more lately.

In my loftier reading I am learning about the Astral Plane. Sometimes when I feel like I have been fighting but it's like the memory of a dream, I think the invisible aspect of me has been fighting something invisible, and it only dimly reaches my conscious mind. But now that I am working with these energies I am starting to sense it.

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.
