I wander much through such old country,
a ghost who's thinking of other ghosts,
missing them and their effects,
an exile from the present, and from past.
Inspired by an excellent writing by :iconalecbell: 'Secretive' is here> [link]
Thanks, Alec.

Thanks, Dorian. And be careful with those Mai-Tais served in a pineapple, they'll get you loopy just as fast as straight bourbon, but they sneak up on you cos you're not expecting it. :D

This is already in my fav's. (Congrats on the DLD, btw!)
I guess the reason (besides your excellent way with words) is that I often live in a land like this, too.

Thank you again for that fave, LJ.

Yeah, it's the Lonely Country, that place we live too much.

"a ghost who's thinking of other ghosts."
...man, I am so sick of feeling this exact thing.
years years years years...

Well put. I feel more organized from having read this.

In my opinion looking for exile from the future would be the real sad thing
I keep my heart young but my soul feels old and although neither of those makes life easier, both deepen perception

My perception has become too deep and the world too shallow, Gabriela. I feel that Big Brother has already arrived and the true freedom that I felt when I was young is almost gone. We will soon be watched by UAVs as well as by electronic means, and the people I knew are gone to death or far away in unknown places. We need fewer gadgets and twitters and more human interaction. I don't think we will get them.

Anyway, that's the way I see it.

I agree :shrug: but there must be something we can do about it :hmm:
let's start with more human interaction :tighthug:

Easy on the crushing and glomming; I'm old and very lightweight, and the bones are less dense than they were. :D But thanks. :)

no problem :D

"old" is relative - back when I was playing games on facebook - about 3 or 4 years ago I made friends with some team members. there was a guy of 13y.o. from Singapore who was looking for foreign friends with whom he could practise English. I made a comment on his status update and his classmate said "where did you meet this old girl with funny name?" 
that made me laugh, as usually people think I'm 18 and everyone from 15 to 50 calls me "sweetie" :giggle:

I can no longer justifiably object to the "old" adjective.

Adroitly wrought. Gives real pause, sends shivers down the ol' spine. Though I'm relatively young, I've started to collect a few ghost, started to haunt a few old geographies, the sort you can't ever go back to, really. That odd feeling of limbo in your own skin, place, time.

Thanks, Jamie, and thanks for the fave, too.

On bad days, sometimes it seems that the ghosts are all there is. But there are mostly good days. In my case, anyway.

this is the way it is, Lance.
but not constantly, we hope.
