Some of the people Lilla hangs out with have beliefs that, when those beliefs are expressed, pull me out of my torpor, make me raise my hackles, or worse. A conversation just a few minutes ago had me about ready to start hissing and growling at the guy. I even felt myself shift into a draconic form with green, vaguely porcupine-like quills, ready to attack if necessary. Some kinds of belief just feel like an attack to me.

Whenever I try to imagine Peeves the Poltergeist from Harry Potter, I keep seeing the Clown With The Tear-Away Face from Nightmare Before Christmas.

Some days there are people you just want to turn dragon in front of and start using them as a scratching post.

It is difficult to maintain an online presence here with nothing to post about. Alex has his shtick, that of being as offensive as possible. What do I have? Who am I? What are my interests? Even Lo, who is an artist and music lover, has little to talk about. And I have even less.

Lately, I have been shapeshifting into an interesting new form that has wickedly sharp teeth, freaky eyes, and an impossible grin. By "impossible grin," I mean that it keeps going up the cheek, through the temple, and all the way around the head. It can even split the head completely, a little like that one monster on Nightmare Before Christmas, the top of its head attached on the inside. But impossible unless it kept its brain somewhere else, or had a smaller brain.

Life Advice

Peace is a piece you achieve through Will and desire. If you desire happiness, you must Will it to happen. Depression can be fought. It is hard, but it can be done. Focus your Will and overcome it. Will is a bright fire, and the dark beasts of depression hate its heat and light. Start a bonfire in your soul to scare the dark beasts away. Dance around it, watching the sparks fly into the sky to become stars; let these stars guide you.

The Little Engine That Could had the beginnings of a good idea, but failed in the wording. Do not merely *think* you can, KNOW you can. Doubt is a mind-killer, not just fear; but doubt uses fear and fear uses doubt. Slay the demon of doubt. Stop looking for the evidence of your failures and look for evidence of your successes. Look for the signs that you are getting your Will, and more signs will appear. It is a Glorious Cycle, just as looking for the failures is a Vicious Cycle.

If you cannot believe in yourself, believe in the Universe/God/Whatever you want to call It.
