Dream Catchers

Osayo (Hello),

In the old days a woman was troubled by a spider building her home in the house of this woman. She went to destroy the web and spider, but was stopped by her friend who said, “Leaver her to work. She is also Grandfather’s child.” And so, the woman relented.

The spider, older than was known, went to the home of the friend and said, “You protected me. And I will give you and your children protection while you sleep. I will stop bad dreams from waking you, or bad spirits from troubling even as you have done for me.”

As the years passed the spider grew to love the children of the village and started protecting all of them. As she grew too old she gathered one woman from each of the seven clans and said, “I will show you how to weave my web so your children and grandchildren may always have my webs to guard their sleep.” These women taught all the people the web. And so, till this day, all the people of all the world may make her protecting web. The nature of mankind added the adornments and gifts that have come to be a Dream Catcher of today.

Well, Ain’t That Some Shit?

After about a decade of friendship I am loosing someone from my life. And, as the title of this says, ain’t that some shit?

It comes down to a simple problem: we game together, and out of the game we a fine as friends, but when gaming we are poison. The toxicity has gotten the better of me. Worse still, it is killing off a friend of a couple of years with it in all likelihood.

I am old enough to know this never had to get this way, but I have a fatal character flaw: I am too fucking nice. I put up with shit because I am strong enough to handle it. Then it gets worse. I have been warned about it in the past, “Letting people walk all over you isn’t healthy.” No shit?

But, I didn’t think of it as being walked on. It is a thin line between being strong and being used. I have always had an issue with that.

So, any way, that is why I am posting now. As for why I have been silent, well, there was a lot of shit going on in my life and I either didn’t want to share it, or didn’t think it was worth sharing.

I hope your life is going well, who ever you are.


Getting Back To Normal

After the house fire on the 28th of July (at which time my server was about to renew, but the situation required me to let it go for a bit), the site had to drop.

I am in a better place today than I was last week at this time. I am going to set this back up so I can update and keep a web presence.
