Vicarious living through television

Mild day,

kind of grey.

I’m feeling a little bit rotten,

coming down with a cold,

don’t worry,

I’ll live,

Butches are tough:-)

Although as far as butches go,

I don’t know how tough,

I can be considered,

after all,

my moniker is,

bookish butch.

Bookish is not the type of word,

that inspires visions of toughness.


I am more sensitive,

than tough:-)

I went for a long walk today,

to clear my head to try and focus.

I’m not sure it worked,


the exercise is good.

My heart hurts,

I’m sad,

and it’s February.

I think many of us feel that way.

I think I’ll read.


and I’ll watch Jennifer Beals,

in her new show.

Beautiful woman,

in a uniform,

works for me.

Things are looking up!!

When you feel the way I feel,

you live vicariously through books,

and television.

Later girls,

I am a bookish butch in my very early fifties. I live in Montréal and always have. I used to run a small used bookstore. Reading keeps me sane. My latest jiggie is photography, book project in the works, living the dream

  1. I’m all about the living vicariously through books! Also, I was in your area of the world on Sunday, just driving in and out though. I forgot how much I dislike driving in Montreal!!

  2. Quebec drivers have a reputation for being insane…It is justified, the reputation not the insanity. Hope you’re having a good trip and living it up, vicariously with some good books. Drive carefully:-)
