In a Weird Mood...

I had been feeling strange all today—a bit out of sorts. I’m usually pretty good at pinpointing the source of my weird moods, but I couldn’t get my finger on this one… My Piano Man noticed my signature la la land stare, and asked, “Are you plotting?” There are times when I just can’t help it. We can be eating or watching a movie, and I flash into the world of my latest fiction writing adventure.

I kissed him and said, “No, I’m not plotting, just feeling strange; a bit down, but I don’t know why.”

We ate lunch, and then I began to work on a paper for school—sexy, dark and bloody Modernist Literature. I love the material, so the paper flowed beautifully. Yet, I was still feeling gloomy.

My Piano Man went to run some errands. He looked extra yummy when he got back *No, he didn’t do anything special; he always looks sexualicious* He lay next to me—I write in bed—and, of course, I felt the need to take action. I was all smiles afterwards! My darling lover always knows how to kiss it and make it better.

The actual kissing, touching and yes that too, was what melted me and the gloominess inside, but the energy released during the deed was what cleared my head; I figured out what had been bothering.

It’s you.

Yes, my Wicked Darlings, it is all because of you. I’ve been posting so much since Witches in Fiction that I’ve neglected visiting many of your blogs—I miss your thought provoking words. I used to have time to post 3 to 5 times a week, and still visit most of you. However, now that I have a Piano Man and a Hello-Kitty-bingo-loving Princess to love fulltime, my fiction writing, school, and a mother who is needier than a newborn with a severe case of separation anxiety, I must make some changes that include more Wicked Darling stalking time.

So… what’s a Witch to do? Well, I’ll reset my posting habits to every 3 days or so. These changes will affect the publishing of features like Pagan Fiction in 113 Words or Less—instead of Dark and Full Moons, I’ll post those fictional bits as close to the Esbats as possible. The rest will remain fairly unaltered, except for the fact that I’ll get to visit your cyber homes and snoop around more often!  

This might be one of those dumb tricky questions, but do you miss your bloggy friends when you don’t read their words for a while?


Write you in 3 days or so, but read you soon!

  1. Aww! Yes I get that way too. I start to wonder what people are doing/saying/thinking, and I miss it when I can't get to them.

    I may not always comment or post, but I try to read as often as possible.

  2. I understand how you feel. I go through periods where it feels I have been way too out of touch with my blog buddies :)

    I try to read as often as I can and I have to admit that I don't comment like I should.

    Love having you around.

    Cheers!

  3. I've been the same way...of course I just got back home from vacation and now I need a vacation. I had no cell/sporadic internet for 5 days and spent all morning today catching up on blogstuffs. I'm in a funk as well....but couldn't tell you why.

    Glad your Piano Man made you feel better :)

  4. I'm glad that your Piano Man helped you rid ourself of that bottled up negative feeling....I think you probably suffer from being over done with all the pulls you have on you whether from within or without. Aries are strange that way....we tend to do it to ourselves as well as allowing the people we love to rule our time. Be well, be safe and savor....I know you will do the later because well you are after all the Wickedest of all darlings. The Olde Bagg

  6. Heathen - Good to know I have company!

    The Frog Queen - It seems to be a common occurrence, huh?

    Tea Witch - I might be we miss all the positive energy we get from our cyber buddies. And yes, my Piano Man is an expert at making me happy ;-)

    Linda - This is so strange (or maybe not) but when I was writing this post I thought about you and our Aries-I-Can-Take-Care-of-the-Whole-World tendencies. I'll savor indeed!

    Melissa - And I must go check on your updates!

  7. I definitely start to miss my lovely friends, sisters and partners in crime when I don't get to visit for a bit. Or write for a bit, for that matter. I love getting comments as much as snooping everyone's blogspaces.

    Here's a margarita dear, happy reading, writing and loving time!

  8. I very much feel that way, and often. A lot of my favorite bloggers are very sporadic posters, so by the time they get around to it I am in a lather over needing to read their words!

    I am glad your Piano Man helped alleviate some of your discomfort *winks*

  9. Absolutely, I've missed a couple days and nearly freaked out trying to catch up. Finally I had to weed out and keep only the best blogs I read.

  10. I start to worry about my invisible bloggy friends when they haven't blogged in a while. When you read a person's word, thoughts and feelings for a while, you start to take them in and they become a part of you. I notice instantly when I am missing a piece of my heart. Maybe that sounds uber cheesy, but that is me.

    My words, thoughts are feelings are never very interesting (or deep for that matter) I am sure, but I put them out there anyway :).

  11. Danni - I think it's a witchy trait (we love knowing things, don't we?). And I'm sipping your margarita and doing the rest; who cares if it's a gazillion degrees in NYC lol

    Bella - It is sooo good to know that I'm not the only. I'm on my way to you to get my fix. And yes, my darling knows exactly how to put things were they belong ;-D

    Lilac - Catching up drives me nuts. And the weeding out process is a nightmare to me, for I always think I missed something amazing *sigh*

    Penny - I must disagree with your last remark, my love. I'm sure you've noticed I'm always stalking you. It's not because of the zombies *well, maybe sometimes* but the truth is that you write from the heart and that is deep and it touches others. It touches me every time: your ranting, your anecdotes about your girls and hubby... I love what you write!

  12. Yes, if I haven't read someone for a while, I wonder how they're doing. And if they disappear without explanation, I worry a little about them.

  13. Debra - Isn't it incredible how our words, pictures... experiences bring us so close together?

  16. Oh how I know that feeling when theres just too much to do in a day! I'm new to blogging and I have to admit its a wonderful treat to have all this connection and support from the heart just by sitting at a computer! Its addicting to say the least and I feel a bit torn when I get home from work and know I still have tons to do but I'd RATHER just hang out with all you wicked lovelies on line!!!! The good part though is even if I don't have time to be here as much as I would like, I can always think of all my new bloggy friends while I'm at work and it gets me through the day with a big grin on my face!!!!Deb

  17. I do miss people's blogs! But the nice thing about the internet is that it's always there, just waiting for you forever and ever

  18. A resounding yes!!! I miss them terribly.
    Now that I have the grandmonkeys with me...I will miss more this month! Sniff!! They keep me hopping for sure and they take over the computers! Ha!
    Love ya
    Hugs

  19. In a word ... yes. But then it hits me over the head - is it really that bad that actual real life, outside of a computer screen, gets in the way? Not that blogland isn't important - it's my way to release and connect with people - but it is certainly not the end-all, be-all of my world. It's just my preferred way to while away time on the internet :-)
    Oh, the delicious first time I realized that sex can sometimes be a healing, nurturing time and not just wham-bam-thank-you-sir ;-)
    Stay cool, wicked darling!

  21. Hello My Friend ;o) Yes, I do miss my bloggy friends, when I'm not reading their posts and sharing in all their wonderful events! All of them are special friends, that I have made ;o) Magaly, know that you are loved! I'm glad your Piano Man, helped you ;o)

  22. Yes, blog friends are 'friends' as real & physical as others you may meet up with for a coffee (or not) but here is something else about our virtual world, it can work in harmony with the rest of our life, I don't think it's possible to share time 'evenly' so sometimes a pianoman, or assignment, or job, or exercise, or whatever needs a little more time dedication... you posted like a freakin' tornado because that was what was needed during 'Witches in Fiction' and you did get to still communicate with blog friends as we (on mass) came to partake in all the words, prizes & general goodness on offer at your blog... I don't feel unloved if someone hasn't commented, they may have still read my post, I wouldn't be so harsh on myself Magaly, take the time to enjoy doing what you do, don't let it become something you 'have' to do, a chore :( Yes I miss people & maybe they miss me if I haven't blogged/commented & meant too, but friends don't mind, they really don't, and if they do they know where to find you ;) I just find delight in reading a comment from a friend, you My Wickedness don't need to apologise for not stalking 24/7 hells bells just integrate that into your activities during rest time from PM ;) Assuming you do have rest time (he he)...

  23. PS The Poppy Tree artwork is just gorgeous, and compliments your post wickedly well!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Geckostone - I'm the same way! And things that happen to me in this offline remind me of people I've me only online, in turn that reminds me that those friendships are as significant as the ones forged face-to-face!

    Lora - Wise witchy woman ;-)

    SueAnn - Well love you enjoy the GrandArmy and then tell us all about your adventures together!

    Lydia - Oh Lydia dear, I hope you explore this discovery. My magical practices are based on sexual energy, greenery and dark moon energy; I love it! On the other issue, I don't think I separate computer life/friendships from those offline. My two best friends and I only communicate online, one I met face-to-face and the other I have never seen, but I love them both the same.

    Judy - Ha! I'm glad I'm not the only one who looks at my laptop with longing when I haven't seen your images for a while lol

    Shelle - You always know what to say, my love. If you weren't married to your the Artsy Surfer and I wasn't absolutely in love with my Piano Man, I would have to bring you home ;-) And yes, I LOVE The Poppy Tree artwork too!

  25. A true miracle worker!
    maybe you were just being nice and maybe it's just a coincidence but I met someone tonight that has got me head over heels.
    He seems perfect but for now just enjoying the bliss.
    So if it wasn't you and your well wishes I'm going to pretend it was anyway and if it was then THANK YOU!

  26. Cogent - I'm taking the credit! WoooHooo! I can't wait to read about it, if you choose to share of course. You deserve some good loving my friend!

  27. Yes Magaly, those friendships are just as important as those forged face to face! It reminds me when I was just a teen, I had a bunch of "pen pals" that were fellow Osmond Brother fans ( oh my gosh I can't believe I'm admitting that, lol )and a few I even met and we are still friends today!Its funny too, I think about how back then it was so distressing to have the mail mess up and not hear from our pen pals for a while and now today its a panic when we get cut off from our friends from computer crashes or server problems and its just as devastating. Our Hughes net blanked out last night and I thought I was gonna die!!!!I heard there was a huge solar flare though. Wonder if that had anything to do with it? Has anyone else noticed anything?Here I am rambling....See ya!Deb

  30. Oh Magaly, YES, I certainly miss my bloggy friends if I don't read their words for awhile and sometimes I experience very much the same emotions you are describing. But also, I think we must realistically admit that we are merely human mortals.

    I believe we women truly, from the bottom of our hearts, want to keep all of our sacred relationships continuously nurtured but we forget to nurture ourselves as well.

    I believe a true friend expects nothing in return because she always knows that everything and everyone has a season and sometimes that season requires absence and rest. It is when we return to one another that the spark reignites and we say, "I have missed you! How wonderful to hear from you!" and spend what time we have together. As far as I am concerned, my sweet Magaly, you are a sweetheart of a Wicked Witch and my door is always open anytime you have a minute to drop by. Hugs, my darling!

  31. Mina - You are absolutely right, "a true friend expects nothing." My best friend and I have gone months, even a year, without talking to each other, and we finally see each other we pick up from where we left of. We don't complain or fuss over the absence, we just enjoy the moment. You are wise, wise woman ;-)
