The ins and outs of it (December Reflections 13)

Today’s December Reflections prompt is: Five things about me

Please bear with me. Alcohol has been partaken. None of this may make sense. I will keep it brief.

Injustice. I have a strong sense of injustice. Nothing makes me more cross than an injustice. I will fight tooth and nail for the underdog, to defend the wrongly accused. I was forever the scapegoat when I was young and was always being punished for something that I had not done. I think it must stem from that. A normally calm individual, an injustice can transform me into an incoherent hissing and spitting harridan.

Intuition. I have a strong intuition or sixth sense or whatever you care to call it. No longer as strong as it was in my teens and twenties but sometimes I can still scare myself with how I just know things. In the past it has exhibited itself with odd happenings such as going to answer the door before a knock or the telephone before it rings… already knowing who is there. When I was twelve I told my twin that our parents had been in an accident. She told me not to be so stupid but later they came home with a policeman… my mother had driven the car into a lorry. There have been many such incidents in my life but the last strong event that I can recall was when I was forty and knew with no doubt that my first grandchild had been born.

Instict. I have learned to listen to my instincts and to trust my gut feeling. I have long lived by the mantra: if it feels wrong, don’t do it. I am more wary of the "feels right" feeling, which cannot always be trusted.

Inhibition. I have many inhibitions and have missed out on much of my potential and many possible relationships because of that.

Interrogatives and Information. I have often thought that when I die my headstone will read "But why?". I am incorrigibly curious. It has never been enough for something just to be so and I have always asked "Why?" This got me into much hot water as a child, being considered to be cheek or answering back. I just have a need to know, a reason, and will always ask for the information that I seek. Information has been my lifeblood. I cannot function without Information and it seems no surprise that I ended up with a couple of simultaneous careers in Information Technology!

Feeling a bit seedy

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

Here, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

Here, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
