"Again I questioned, but this time only in thought..." ~ Jane Eyre

I have much to express, yet I lack the energy of late to do so. Many a new post swirls within my head and heart, yet life at the moment drains me of time and energy. This too shall pass, because the commencement of any school year is always like this, and I know the pressure will begin to dissipate once a full month has passed.

In the meantime, I am incanting Muses who I hope shall assist me with my writing for the next few days. One of my favorite characters in a novel - George Emerson in E.M. Forester's A Room With A View - loves to ask questions.

So I ask that you who read this blog, even if you do not usually comment, please be my Muse? I invite you to ask me anything or ask my opinion on anything in the comment section of this post and I shall reproduce your questions and my answers within various intervals of posts over the next few days. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation in advance, Muses, for keeping this writer afloat for a bit, just as Athena kept Odysseus afloat! Muses, please give me your divine intervention, whether the question be serious or silly!

Efcharisto (that means "thank you" in Pallas Athena's language).

Well, you know I have to be 'silly.'

1) If a wild animal somehow got trapped in your house, what would you do? Scream like a sissy, or yell at the little punk to get the H out of your house? ha

2) If you sat down to a drink with Ernest, what in the devil would you SAY?

3) Would you ever get completely smashed and post here?

4) Do you ever have the desire to attack men in uniform?

5) Would you ever coerce J. Sarah to post here?

(1) I did both. 2) I'd say, "Man! Those bull horns sure do BITE!" 3) I will, at some point. Post and comment here. Just to make you laugh. 4) I do, all the time. Note to self: Head to the navy yard. 5) I wish Bean did any writing these days, cause she kills me. She's WAAYY funnier than I am. Maybe one day, I'll convince her to post. Till then, I'll just tell sordid stories about her. haha JK

Take care of yourself, Dearest.
