     The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

     Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 50,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 19 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

     Ha-ha, I’m it!

     My fine fellow blogger, Crazy Goblin managed to catch me before I made it to safe ground so now I must answer his questions – because you know what Christina Rossetti said about Goblin Men…

Q.  Have you ever been made redundant from your job and how did you feel about it?

A.  Thankfully, no.

Q.  If you were interviewing someone for a writing job, what 3 qualities would you look for and why?

A.  I would ask; do you live in a garret and have a laudanum habit?  Are you psychologically traumatised?  Can you hit a deadline?  Yes to any one of those three gets you the job.

Q.  What is your favorite board game and why?

A.  I hate board games.  Competition makes me anxious and I still have nightmares about Operation.

Q.  When you look at the stars, what do you see?

A.  Galaxies far, far away...

Q. When you look at the ocean, what does it remind you of?

A.  A big blue wobbly thing that mermaids live in.

Q.  How do you overcome writer’s block?

A.  A change of scenery  (which is just an excuse to head for a different coffee shop).

Q.  If you could say 3 encouraging things to another person, what would they be?

A.  I love you, in a million years time who is going to care?  And no, your bum doesn’t look big in that…

Q.  Do you prefer to write your stories/books/poetry/prose/articles on paper first, then type them up and edit them, or do you like to type them straight into your computer to edit?

A.  Despite having romantic notions about a quill and parchment everything goes straight on the laptop.  I didn’t learn to touch-type for nothing.

Q.  Do you like writing in one genre or more?

A.  I’m a fan of the darkly fantastic but that is a vast and multifaceted thing.  I enjoy entrail-draped gimp dungeons AND cute fluffy bunny rabbits.

Q.  As a writer, do you think actions speak louder than words?

A.  Definitely.  Words are tricksy.

Q.  What is your favorite quote and why?

A.  If there’s nothing wrong with me then there must be something wrong with the universe.

     So, scramble everyone because if I tag you it’s your turn to copy what you see here…

     Lily Wight ~ The Arcade Of Arts & Arcana is presenting just one Blog Of The Year Award for 2012.

     Renard Moreau is a gifted and conscientious blogger with a unique ability to speak directly and warmly to his readers.  Renard has wit, wisdom and an ability to see beauty in many things.  His blog is infinitely varied, always entertaining and enlightening by coincidence just when you need it to be.

     Renard is unlikely to be interested in or effected by this award, but his blog is heartily recommended just the same and hopefully that will make him *smile* 😉

My Voyage Through Time

Today I read a post about The Fool card in Tarot. One of my favorite gals- Lily Wight of The Arcade of Arts & Arcanaposted Tarot art – The Foolon May 9, 2012. I absolutely loved the art work created for that card. Ms. Lily reblogged the tarot post from Tiana Setka’s Divination Blog. After reading the post, I started to contemplate what it means to be foolish? The word foolish can be interpreted in so many ways. The synonyms for the word foolish include: stupid, silly, idiotic, unwise, imprudent, thoughtless, and of course irrational. The antonym for the word foolish is simply wise. At any given time I could be described as all of thee above. Since I take pride in wisdom, how is it that all of thee above can possibly describe me? I am at a loss for words it seems. I guess that…
