You won’t have to feed the pig…

with 3 comments

Some of my friends know that I’m a great fan of marriage, having married thrice thus far. And a renowned psychic (Sonia Choquette) told me I might have one more marriage left in me, because “…you’re a hopeless romantic, Marcus…”

I’ve been cleaning closets and throwing out old junk…here’s a wonderful snippet I found in one of my ancient journals (circa 1980 or so) — it’s an extract from a book titled “Hands and Hearts: A History of Courtship in America,” by Ellen Rothman (Harvard University Press).

“I feel sad when I don’t see you. Be married, why won’t you? And come to live with me. I will make you as happy as I can. You shall not be obliged to work hard, and when you are tired, you may lie in my lap, and I will sing you to rest…I will play you a tune upon the violin as often as you ask and as well as I can; and leave off smoking, if you say so….I would be always very kind to you, I think, because I love you so well. I will not make you bring in wood and water, or feed the pig, or milk the cow, or go to the neighbors to borrow milk. Will you be married?”

A Blog About Nothing

leave a comment »

I’m playing around with this very cool blogging site, www.posterous.com. It’s a greatly simplified blog set-up; all you have to do is send an e-mail to your account and voila! It’s automatically formatted and loaded simultaneously to an external blog *and* your Facebook page if you like.

So I’m going to play with it and see how it works out. If you’re on my Facebook feed, you may already have noticed my wonderfully eclectic collection of friends: novelists, mercenaries, soldiers, martial artists, cooks, readers, doctors, lawyers, Indian Chiefs, shamans, healers, massage therapists and a whole slew of us regular folk.

Some things I may blog about:

Neural based training for combatives
Shamanic practices
Training tips for shooters, knifers, and hand to hand guys and gals
Books and movies I like
Authors I like (lots of them on my list)
Writing tips for novels, screenplays, heck, maybe even poetry
Parenting
Friendship
Emergency Preparedness
Apocalyptic visions

And other random topics.

Except for politics.

Stay tuned!

cheers, m
