A mullet.

Carmen
Carmen is on page 157 of 352 of Ruin Falls: As soon as he was gone, she had the impulse to lock the front door, then all the other entrances to the house.

THEN DO THAT. I can't believe this woman. She ignores all her instincts when confronted with men who skeeve her out. Even AFTER her children have gone missing. Are you afraid of offending him? Fucking offend him. DON'T LET HIM BACK IN.
A Child's Christmas In Wales by Dylan Thomas
"My artistic, flighty mother, who's in her 70's, flits in and out of my life, leaving quirky gifts behind. Sometimes they go straight to Goodwill (used clothing, cheap knickknacks); sometimes they're useful (a type of mop she particularly loves?);..." Read more of this review »

Reasons to Stay Alive by Matt Haig
“Talk. Listen. Encourage talking. Encourage listening. Keep adding to the conversation. Stay on the lookout for those wanting to join in the conversation. Keep reiterating, again and again, that depression is not something you ‘admit to’, it is not something you have to blush about, it is a human experience.”

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”
Dylan Thomas, Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

“It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.”
William Ernest Henley, Echoes of Life and Death;

“I am burdened with what the Buddhists call the 'monkey mind' -- the thoughts that swing from limb to limb, stopping only to scratch themselves, spit and howl.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“I said, "I do not fear those pants with nobody inside them." I said, and said, and said those words. I said them but I lied them. ”

Ashley *Hufflepuff Kitten* hi there Derrolyn! I see your updates all the time via friends, so I thought we ought to just make it GR official ;)

Tamera YES! I'm trying so hard to pretend that I'm not okay with John Barrowman in Uggs. 'Cause I might be.

Tamera Because we can, Derrolyn.... because we can.



Nemo (the Moonlight Library) You wrote your first book at age 49? I swear to god Derrolyn you look about 30 in your profile pic (more like late 20s). What the hell is your secret to eternal youth? Do you sacrifice virgins? I seriously thought you were about in your mid-30s or something (only because I know you have teen kids). Seriously, are you some kind of immortal?

Oh that sounds really cool. They must be quite happy in their home if they are thriving like that. A twenty inch fish is a seriously big fish. lol

You have some beautiful paintings. :D

Just saw your comment! I'm not getting notifications for some reason :(

No, I had to look that up to see it was an Escher - I was actually inspired by the four monster koi that are rapidly outgrowing my patio pond. We're going to add a connected horse trough with some water lilies as a bio-filter ASAP, because they eat all the plants we put in there! (They're seriously huge, and have grown from 2" to about 20", and share the pond with a ton of former carnival goldfish, LOL).


Willow I love the exquisite fish painting in your profile. Were you inspired by Three Worlds? I used to have a poster of that in my bedroom.

Navessa Aw, thank you!

*hugs*


Loki (of Smartassgard) Took a pic to show you. Please ignore the shoddy quality, it is late and my cell phone has no flash. :)



Loki (of Smartassgard) I just got a full screen ad from Amazon about The Mackenzie Legacy and had to smile. Yay, Derrolyn!!! :)


message 45: by Navessa

Navessa Ach! I couldn't agree more. I'm having a photographer friend of mine take it. I'll be masked, as I'll be publishing under the pen name, but I don't want it to be silly, so I'm hitting her up for some professional help.


Jennifer Hey! It's been forever but I just wanted to see how you've been! Really excited to hear more about your 80's themed novel :D Have you been watching John Hughes on repeat?


Willow I just had to tell you, you're paintings are lovely, Derrolyn. You give your still-life’s so much vibrancy, color and movement. It reminds me a little bit of Janet Fish, although your style is all your own. :D

Inge Hi Derrolyn, thank you for the friend request. I'm sorry this troll has been bothering you as well. Really hope he disappears soon!

Khanh (Clowns, Nightmares, and Bunnies) You know, with a name like Khanh, I thought I've heard them all. Genghis Khan. The Great Khanh. The Wrath of Khanh.

And then you came alone with...that thing.
