Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.

How to play:

- Grab the nearest book.
- Open the book to page 23.
- Find the fifth sentence.
- Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.

From "The Tarot According to You" (which wasn't the closest reading material, but was possibly the closest book):

"Ups and downs." (which isn't a proper sentence, but was the fifth phrase that ended with a period)

See, stuff like this is why fortune-telling "works." Of course there are ups and downs. It's ridiculously easy to apply such a vague phrase to any part of your life. (I'm not passing judgment here--I don't care whether you believe the cards (or whatever) were influenced from beyond (or wherever) or whether you just use it as a jumping-off point for a little self-analysis. It's just an opinion.)
