In Sepia

*REPOST FROM 5/17/12, SATURDAY*

Hey Everyone!

^__^

I know it’s been a while since I last wrote anything…I’ve been so busy editing…And taking care of the family. So much has been going on since I’ve last written. I’ve decided I’m not going to let someone who is angry at me chase me away from where I want to be. I just don’t have to tolerate it. I can be civil, but I will never feel that trust again.

Anyway, we are now in hurricane season, so I bet you can imagine the ups and downs of living in SW Florida this time of year. The past few days here was….hmmm, how do I explain it???

I’ll just let you know in a poem:

.

I was in NY, July 2001 and took a picture of the ESB tower…I changed the color tone to coincide with the poem…

Today I awake in sepia views

Undertones of brown yellow-orange hues

***

I love to play around with this kind of tone

But waking up to it makes me feel so alone

***

Sun, the sun, supposed to play a major role

Florida sun makes me happy not down in a hole

***

I’m glad when you descend and moon is here

I’m sad when you arrive and no where near

***

For today was sepia, a warm tricky tone

It is sunny and cloudy with rain time unknown

***

And so today I awake in a sepia view

A bleak dreary day dipped in unwanted hue

K is for Potassium

I had a really cool thought in my head earlier, but I had grown tired—it could be because of all this rain we’ve been having here in Florida (It is hurricane season, after all), or it could be from a lack of potassium (Which I’ll get to that later.).  But for now, I don’t know—and then the power went out…Twice!!!  Welcome to Florida…
 
Speaking of Florida…I can’t believe how many tourists we have during the summer.  You would think they would rather go up north than to be in this humidity down here.  There are so many pale skinned people down here, and you know who the visitors are because they’re pale with sunburn.  Big mistake in sub tropical weather.  But that’s not my problem.
 
Anyway, I’ve gotten off topic as usual.  I had started writing this two days ago, but lost track.
 
How many of you ever get so upset and depressed and yet you don’t know why?  I do.  I get week and some days I can never seem to get enough sleep.  I remember once when I was pregnant with my son and felt depressed.  The doctor had informed me that not only was my iron levels low, but my potassium levels were low too.
 
In my family, low potassium levels can cause depression.  And I had a serious bout of depression the other day.
 
I had posted this the other day in wondering if I would be forgotten.  I don’t have any local friends.  I’ve moved around so much as a child.  I was the vagabond of NY for all my child years.  I wasn’t good at making friends the way my older brother was.  And those that wanted to be my friend, only wanted to be my friend to be around my brother.  It was then that I decided to have guy friends only.
 
But even guy friends you can’t have, because once you have a boyfriend, it’s damn near impossible to have a guy friend.
 
So all my friends are internet people that I’ve met on here, and Myspace before it changed, and of course, the ever popular Facebook.
 
Yeah, I’ve gotten in touch with a few from my high school years, but out of all of them, I only hear from one.  I never hear from anyone else.
 
Well, the other day on FB, I found out that a fellow blogger had died.  And the sad part of it all was we JUST found out, when he had already passed away nearly three months ago.  It is so sad when you are forgotten like that, and it got me to wonder…Would I be remembered when I die?  Or would I be a lost soul that no one ever thinks about????
 
 
That’s the end of my rant, but if you’re wondering about the title of my story…If you’re not into chemistry or Life Itself as my science teacher used to call it.  It’s the periodic table, and K is the element symbol for Potassium.
 
Well, I shall be on another blog rant again soon.
