Oh the weather outside is frightful
And the fire is so delightful
And since we’ve no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow; let it melt because it’s fucking APRIL!
I don’t know about any of you out there, but I distinctly remember Easter Sunday falling in spring, not in winter. I remember going to church (I was raised a Catholic) in a pretty Easter dress, with nothing but an over sweater on to keep me warm. I remember the warmth of the spring sun on my face. It certainly wasn’t like it is today.
My mother… may all the Gods and little fishies love her… says that it is because they have somehow managed to move Easter.
How the hell can you move the anniversary of the death and resurrection?
Oh BTW that was a rhetorical question so nobody need email me to explain things thanks. I’m pretty well up on my crucifixion and all that jazz.
It’s been a tough sort of week in RaziWorld and since according to Christian faith God rested on the seventh day, since this IS the seventh day of mayhem in RaziWorld, I’m hoping that God, Goddess, Demi-Gods and their female counterparts will all give it a rest for a while because I really need them to.
As you have read my neighbor and good friend has lost her job and her father and now she must put her cat down and it’s not sitting very well with her. I am doing all I can to be there for her, but it’s hard to watch someone down on their luck be so down on their luck. I hate feeling like my hands are tied and even though I know there is nothing I can do to alleviate her pain; I still wish that there was.
I do well with death; I accept it as a natural part of life, I don’t become grief stricken, I look at it, in part, as a means for celebration. Someone who has passed away from the insanity of this world deserves a party in their honor. They are the blessed, the chosen, the few and we who are left behind should celebrate their freedoms, but that is just my personal opinion and I have no right to force it upon anyone….however….
I have made it perfectly clear that there is to be no mourning me, only celebration for me and the people I love and that claim to love me better have been listening.
My father (who passed away December past) has been joined by his sister Nita on the other side. I think his family is taking this whole “The family that prays together stays together,” thing too literally. That makes 4 of them gone in the last 5 months.
On the upside however, my family is getting an addition, my cousin Theresa is expecting and that makes me happy. She is my God sister, she is 24, she is currently single (although she does have a relationship with the baby’s father) and she likes it this way. I’m hoping for a girl, only because I know my God Father would have wanted another baby girl to love if he was still among us, but a boy would be cool too. This is my God-Parents first grandchild. Amen and Hallelujah to that because my poor auntie was beginning to feel left out. He youngest child is the first one to give her a grandbaby… now I must go track down the older brothers of Ms. Theresa and give them a fair throttling for it.
So to those who have been a little worried because I have been perhaps oddly quiet, there is no need. I am quietly contemplating life and always taking stock of the human condition, even my own, but seriously, this snow storm in April thing?
COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE… it really needs to stop!
