Awakened and Grumpy

Posted in Me with tags , , , , , on March 14, 2014 by Eyeless

After a three-month writing hiatus, I have emerged from my burrow like a grumpy old marmot who has overslept Groundhog day and hasn’t yet realized Winter has been blown over and that Spring as just arrived. Punxsutawney Phil’s annual 15 minutes of fame is an important and prideful moment for any marmot. It is not something you simply miss out on. One fact that is important to know about the marmot is that it is a race of proud, subterranean people. Being elegantly minded but less elegantly locomoted and a bit insecure, the marmot is easily offended -far too easily.

All sorts of thoughts and ideas have been bubbling around in the tiny head of the dreaming marmot. Deep under those layers of fat and fur, a lullaby has been whispering secret messages that have travelled far from the past to speak of the future. But they did not lull him into deeper sleep, they stirred his dreams and upset his mind. This morning, his hibernation came to an end. A rather cool sun of the early Spring shone in his face and tickled his whiskers and dazzled his eyes. You do not mess with a marmot. You let the marmot sleep, and you let him sleep until he has fully rested. No one wants a grumpy marmot.

I can write about marmots for seven days straight.


5 loves and 5 dislikes (or 10 things that sums up restlessness)

1. I love cold haricot verts, especially when they are almost frozen. They are so refreshing! I dislike when you order a new mobile phone and there is no USB cable provided in the box.

2. I love Spring and the smell of blooming flowers. It smells of life. I dislike when I get allergic reactions from those smells, though.

3. I love the taste of arrack balls and black coffee, especially when it is enjoyed while watching a setting sun. I (slightly) dislike having tons of song compositions playing in my head while there is no time to actually compose them.

4. I love the outcome of my latest dream sketch. It is almost an exact replica of my dream. I dislike however that I cannot remember the face of the person, whose missing face is the reason why the image isn’t complete.

5. I love that I will be ordering a new laptop soon, very soon. I dislike that I will be ordering a new laptop because my stationary computer is breaking down.

All in all, the present state of my life is quite pleasant, seeing that all positive and negative things do not negate each other. Despite my missing USB cable and the lack of time for composing songs, I still have tasty, nearly frozen haricot verts, and I am just about to enjoy a good cup of black coffee and a delightful arrack ball while watching the setting sun.
