Friday Five

that time again....

1. What is your favorite type of literature to read (magazine, newspaper, novels, nonfiction, poetry, etc.)?
nonfiction and poetry.....i rarely read fiction

2. What is your favorite novel?
tough one, but one that sticks with me, that i read many years ago is the black plume. it was written as the diary of edgar alan poe. the god of small things was one of my favorites too.

3. Do you have a favorite poem? (Share it!)
i have way too many. probably this one, by Byron:

When we two parted
In silence and tears,
Half broken-hearted
To sever for years,
Pale grew thy cheek and cold,
Colder thy kiss;
Truly that hour foretold
Sorrow to this.

The dew of the morning
Sunk chill on my brow--
It felt like the warning
Of what I feel now.
Thy vows are all broken,
And light is thy fame;
I hear thy name spoken,
And share in its shame.

They name thee before me,
A knell to mine ear;
A shudder comes o'er me--
Why wert thou so dear?
They know not I knew thee,
Who knew thee too well:--
Long, long shall I rue thee,
Too deeply to tell.

In secret we met--
In silence I grieve
That thy heart could forget,
Thy spirit deceive.
If I should meet thee
After long years,
How should I greet thee?--
With silence and tears.


4. What is one thing you've always wanted to read, or wish you had more time to read?
i wish i had time to re-read more classics....and historical biographies and poetry....and...hell, i wish i had more time to read!

5. What are you currently reading?
just hit me that i am not reading anything at all for pleasure these days. i need to make time for that. i am reading a book on immigration laws, but that is work related....

wandering does not make you a "gypsy."
why would you call yourself
after those who have no home?
long skirts and hoop earrings
do not make you a "gypsy."
why do you call yourself after
those who have no clothes?

"gypsy" is pejorative. please don't perpetuate the stereotype. educate yourself on what it really means to be a "gypsy" in this world.
