The End

The End

I planned this shot for over a month.  It includes all the research, notebooks, loose pages, planning cards, and the pens and cartridges I killed through my November project.

Time Capsule – November 27

Posted in Time Capsule on November 27th, 2013 by Aurora

A snippet of something I wrote in November, 2009…
Written in Blood

I’m in love.

I don’t know much of anything else, but I remember this.  I KNOW it to be true in the very depths of my soul.  I don’t remember her name, or our history or even who *I* am, but I remember that I love her and she loves me.  I think… we were going to be married.  Or perhaps we already are?  I remember seeing her – an Angel in her wedding dress, locks of… blond?  Brunette?… hair tumble across her shoulders, She smiles at me as her eyes lock on mine…

I’m in love.

Since the thought came to me, I’ve repeated it over and over, trying to use it as a springboard to dive into the rest of my memories… to figure out who I am, where I am, and how to get out.  I’m not sure if it’s working or if I’m naturally just coming out of… whatever this is, but I’m more aware of my surroundings.  I can hear voices.  I feel like I should know them… or some of them.  But I can’t place them and I can only pick out a few words.

“Dangerous… keep going… have to… almost ready.”

I’m able to feel a soft touch against my face, it feels familiar.  I need to see who it belongs to and I pour all my energy into opening my eyes – I’m aware enough to know that that’s what I need to do.

A miracle!  Bright, blurred images; a flash of dark before the lights hurt my eyes too much and I close them again, frustrated with my failure.  Please help me!  I scream it, but somehow know that it never made it out of my mouth.

“Quick… back under… soon.”

Then I feel that familiar sting… the nausea.  The darkness seems to get even darker and I feel heavy.

Then nothing.

Time Capsule – November 18

Posted in Time Capsule on November 18th, 2013 by Aurora

I posted this excerpt last year on November 18th from one of the stories I wrote that day.
The Bench
“How do you think the clouds move like that?” He asked her.

“That’s easy,” she replied, jumping down to the ground and flopping beside him, shoving his legs out of the way.  ”God blows on them.  Everyone knows that!”

“Yeah, I guess.  But isn’t he kind of busy for that?”

“He old does it when he’s bored, dummy.  That’s why they’re not always moving!”  She scoffed at him, but then her eyes lit up.  ”Oh!  That one looks like a puppy!”

Time Capsule – November 16

Goulet Pens Unboxing

Goulet Pens Unboxing

I love fountain pens.  When I lived overseas, I only wrote with fountain pens.  They were so cheap!  You could just buy cheapies in the grocery store like you buy regular pens here.  I even had a neat Coca-Cola pen.  I don’t know what happened to them all, I think I got rid of them when I moved.

Here in Canada, though, that’s not the case.  If you even find a pen, they seem to be the expensive ones.

Then I found out about The Goulet Pen Company.

I’m addicted.

This is one of the photos I took while unboxing/unwrapping my first of many packages from The Goulet Pen Company.

Time Capsule – November 15

Posted in Time Capsule on November 15th, 2013 by Aurora

So, I think I mentioned at the beginning of the month that photos are more absent this month because of some ‘other projects’ I usually work on in November.  Here’s a snippet from the start of my 2010 project…
Stormy Afternoon

DEATH

“It was a dark and stormy night…”

Isn’t that how all the death scenes start?  Or the tragic, dark stories where the heroine runs through the woods, destined to die no matter what she does?  The rain threatens to pour down over the dense forest, branches whip her face as she runs blindly through the trees; sparse lightening on the crack of thunder the only illumination on a night when the clouds hide the full moon.

Maybe, but that’s not how it was for me (except for that whole tripping thing).  Of course, my ‘death’ wasn’t exactly by the book…
