Sure do hope

That Joss, ME, and all of us take Dylan Thomas to heart. And I'm tearing up, because I went to see Big Fish today. Sigh. Sad.




Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

--Dylan Thomas


And go see mustangsally78's journal and rusty_halo's journal for info on how to rage.

Nice.

I can't wait to see Big Fish, but as bleh as I've been, I'd bawl my eyes out.

Sigh. I miss you.

When are you going to sign up for Writercon so I can squee appropriately? I promise to wait as long as I have to...

Well, I dunno! I'd feel so out of place--it's odd to explain. I've been thinking about emailing you, actually. I really want to go, but I'm feeling all sorts of isolation or what have you (based on lots-o-stuff accumulating for months). I think that if I were to go, I'd pretty much want to volunteer the whole time, since I'd feel so alien without responsibility.

It's definitely not a *no*--and it really is a chance to spend time with people who I don't get a chance to at the other cons since I always seem to be trying to juggle/foster at least two divergent groups of people.

Mostly, it's totally all about my insecurity....Eeesh. See, TMI for such a simple request!

But, yeah, I miss you. You're the one person I don't know as well as I wish I did.

Awww. Well, if it's work you want, there will be *plenty* to go around. We haven't even got close to figuring out operations staffing yet, and were just talking about needing a captain. And then there's the care and feeding of guests to be worried about...

But mostly? I just want a chance to meet you again. Hubby and I are going v. early (Sunday before)...

Oh, I'd pretty much want to work my ass off.

I'm leaning toward *yes*. If I register, I don't want listed, 'tho.

Is hubby leaving when the con starts? Garth is always complaining I never go anywhere with him...

Yay! I'm glad you're leaning positively -- there's a box to check for permission to list. A few of our more promienent attendees have checked no on that one, so you'll be in good company.

I am still convincing hubby he doesn't want to stay. He's not listening very well so far. I do think that telling him I'm "moving out" and into a room with one of my con buddies might do the trick. On the other hand, there could be advantages to having him just at another hotel nearby ;-)
