Here's the waffle bit....
OK. So I've just finished (almost) reading this really, really, really, good book.
I love books that get inside people's heads - their feelings, fears, thoughts, emotions....
And true/real life stories are best - and this one had the added attraction (for me) of being predominately set in Alaska.
I could identify with what was going on 'inside' Leigh, even though, on the surface, she appeared not to appear like she had all this emotional stuff inside. And I always tend to feel a connection with those who don't quite fit the norm. Maybe that's why I like the series Northern Exposure...all those quirky 'individuals' - that, and the fact that it's set in Alaska.
(have I ever mentioned I have a fascination with Alaska?!)
And Cate Banchett's character portrayal in Blue Jasmine, how there is a fine line between holding it all together and falling apart.
I envy people who are confident and have it all together. Whether they do or not, only they know, but they at least have learnt to appear that way to others.
Me... I practice avoidance (as does Leigh). If you can't face it...run! A good maxim to live by.
I like people...in small doses.
I like my own company...most of the time.
Does that make me odd?
It's easier to talk to myself that others. That way I get the answers I want :)
And then I think... Why am I so drawn to Alaska? Is it because there aren't many people there?
And why do I go for my morning river walks very early in the morning? Ditto?
Does that make me antisocial? Or odd?
My friend Debbie loves India. The noise, colour, people, people, people....
I would hate it!
Interesting how we are all so different. Some normal, some not so normal. But then...what's normal? It's usually when you think you are that you're not.
So does that mean because I think I'm not...that I am?
Enough for today. I'll just go off and finish this conversation with myself....
(PS - read the book. It's really, really, really good!)
(and don't you just hate it when people start sentences with and)
Now for the non waffle part...
Recently I won a blog giveaway on Anne's blog. These lovely hair pins...
And because I love them so much, I went to her Etsy Shop and bought some more! Go take a look....
Now...here's the knitting bit (because I'm linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along)
I'm knitting squares for KOGO. Next Thursday we are having another get together of our charity knitting group and I had given the ladies a challenge last month to knit squares for KOGO (actually...they aren't squares, but rectangles, to be sewn together into blankets). I've only got one knitted so far, so am frantically trying to get another one done before Thursday.
I'm also listening to Jason Mraz on CD. He might just replace Van Morrison as my top man :))
