I have lurked long enough. I know, I am almost at 4,000 posts so that doesn’t really qualify as lurking. But the past couple days have got me thinking that I need my place to spread my wings, so to speak. I can keep up the norm/status quo and just pop in with a comment here and there or be myself, evolve more or less and not be a mute voice in a sea of others.
So here is the plan. This is my place to post what I am thinking (I know, been done before, but they are fun places to visit). And I want everyone to contribute however they like, no rules, just a place to come to, to say hi or tell me I’m dumb. I don’t care. (I do care if you call me dumb but I will assume you say it with love.)
When I say I am all over the place and that is why I don’t post but for hours in between, it’s because I am. I am obsessive compulsive, and I have attention deficit disorder, self-diagnosed, natch.
I may post about the book I am reading or just finished. I may review a movie or a scene or a trailer. You never know what I am going to say.
Basically I want his place so I can say what I want to say and just say it. Far too many times I will write something to say and I will just delete it. If I posted everything I thought of I would have 6 times the post total.
So without further ado, welcome to Chaos Beautiful.

Chaos Beautiful started as a title for a story I was writing, so many years ago know, and one of many I never finished. Then it became the name of my Tumblr page (http://darkfire-collapse.tumblr.com/ NSFW) And now it’s my thread. I liked how it sounded and it’s stuck with me.
The last book I read was The Story Sisters by Alice Hoffman.
I give this book out of 5. Alice Hoffman has written some of my favorite books, The River King, Practical Magic, but this one was missing the magic, figuratively, not actually. I didn’t care for any of the characters, and halfway through the book I just didn’t care anymore and started skipping and skimming large portions, I read about 150 pages in an hour.
