I used to believe in palm readings. In fact I sort of still do.
I had my palm read when I was a kid and the reader made some predictions that kind of came true, like being an architect (the kind of part being that it didn’t last). I dunno, maybe my mum told him what to say before I went up to be read. The more I think about it, the more that seems likely.
Another time my palm was read, I was told I would be successful in whatever I do. I’m still waiting on that one.
I have looked up what certain lines on the hand mean, and I am prepared to believe those interpretations, but who knows, it could be anyone’s hand, right?
Do you believe in fate or do you believe you can control your own destiny?

I am reading Salman Rushdie’s ‘Midnight Children’. I suppose the bit and stung element comes in the knowledge that the author went into hiding after recieving death threats.
Franz Kafka said, “we ought to read only books that bite and sting us.” What’s the last thing you read that bit and stung you?

I don’t do jealousy. I don’t see a point to it. I’d rather be happy for the person.
Tell us about the last time you were really, truly jealous of someone. Did you act on it? Did it hurt your relationship?

Mmmm, as tempting as it is to solve all those culinary questions with a simple pill, I think I would miss the experience of cooking and eating with others.
If you could get all the nutrition you needed in a day with a pill — no worrying about what to eat, no food preparation — would you do it?

How about going to the seaside for fish and chips…
Imagine that tomorrow, all of your duties and obligations evaporate for the day. You get the day all to yourself, to do anything you please. What types of fun activities would make your day?

How are you?
I am ‘Now and Forever’, open since December 25th 2014, responding to ‘The Daily Post’ prompts since October 11th under the name ‘Deer Radio Circus Custom’, and known ‘a priori’ as ‘Radio Circus’ after my mission to transcribe interesting radio shows from the BBC as inspiration for short form writing (which has become a project in situ).
My responses to ‘The Daily Prompts’ are irreverent but existential in manner, and occasionally become anecdotal.
With hopes that may inspire you to respond and even follow, so starting the circle of community-minded people who stick together. After all writing is a method to unite people and reading can be like experiencing life itself.
Because I love reading especially if I can talk to the authors, of which I have the opportunity everyday.
My website’s name, ‘myleviathan’, is called after the leviathan of various myths. The idea is that this site overcomes obstacles to create something universal, where I can talk about anything and everything. I am most happy at my blog. I can be free. Of course there is struggle but behind it something breathes over and over. And this is reflected in writing.
I read some great blogs. By this time next year who knows where we may end up. As I was told: ‘Keep writing’ and as I tell others ‘Keep reaching for the stars’.
Your entire community — however you define that; your hometown, your neighborhood, your family, your colleagues — is guaranteed to read your blog tomorrow. Write the post you’d like them all to see.

Ummm, no I am not. I have two passports, British and French, and I have Indian heritage. I would say I am more curious about my cultural make-up than patriotic.
Are you patriotic? What does being patriotic mean to you?
