  1. Goodness, what a time you’ve had!!! I’m sorry your friend was attacked! That’s awful, especially when he was doing something generous and kind.

    I’m sort of shocked that a nurse would be homophobic. For some reason, I automatically expect people in the medical profession to be open-minded.

    I’m glad there was good to balance out the suck-y stuff! Love Stacy’s crow! And as always, I’m wishing that your pain settles down.

    ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ (13! Of course! 😉 )

  2. How wonderful that the Universe surrounds you with so much beauty to balance the ugly. A moment of clarity came to me while reading your post. I know we are linked but the reason always escaped me*other than we are both awesome cws*… You described your Hammer as Builder and Destroyer, and that is exactly how I describe my Goddess 😀 XXX

  3. What a great post – made me smile. I love to hear about your life and loves.

    I have no feelings about the 13th of anything (except you fly cheaper to and in the US on that date 🙂 ) but I did get some good news yesterday, and I will share it on my blog soon.

  4. The bad and the good do balance out. I’m glad to hear the pain’s fooled and life is good, may it continue to be so. I also wish your friend in hospital a speedy recovery.

    And in all this is an inspiring post, Maga. I wish it were more than ’13 (totally) Random Things…’ to read about? In fact, the title sounds perfect for longer works; a memoir…*nudge*✍🏾😊

  5. Love this dance of words, which of course is not limited to your lively poetry, but includes all the glowing psychedelic bits of the kaleidoscope which is your rich rich soul, and which you share with us, allowing us to see a world of brighter colors which are enhanced because of the darkness of closing one eye in order to see them–the eye of the mundane, the tired and the empty, which you show us how to refresh. I hope both you and your friend know less pain and more joy soon.

  6. Love love your grand exit #2. I must have a mean streak to be doubled over giggling at that.

    And scum….well once I called someone pondscum, you know that green slimy stuff but then I found out pond scum is good and full of nutrients so I need to find another nasty dig.

    Are you sure your heart isn’t made of (real) gold?😊💙💜💓

  7. I went to visit a friend in the hospital once and went to ask the nurse something and she snidely asked me if I was his drinking buddy. what? no, just a friend. I naively didn’t know he was an alcoholic. I put it together though when he started hallucinating. but what I’m getting at is the nurse who had such disdain for my friend. so judgmental.

    but a great list of 13.

  8. What a magical piece of art! I so love Stacie’s crows! I hope your friend in the hospital is better soon! The lesbian love lotion should make everything better because laughter is the best medicine! You have taken the crappy stuff and turned it into a piece on how not to act and the, turned around and showed us how Gratitude works if we just show it. Delightful!

  9. An overflowing plate of 13 ‘niceties’ that often bother us at odd times many times over. One has to stomach them and provide counter options all the time. Perhaps it is a way to keep one on our toes!


  10. You had my eyes welling up with tears a couple (about) half the post. It would take 13 posts to respond to your 13 items. Tears of pain, tears of ugliness, tears of laughter! I so wish I livedette closers. I would accompany you to your friends bedside at the hospital wearing the same shirt and waited until the nurse walked in and ask her for some privacy so we could both rub her down. Maybe that person who swore to heal all would just pass out.

    What a beautiful wonderful perfect Crow with the perfect message. Stacy is such a beautiful soul. I am so happy for you to have this painting.
    Big soft hugs my friend!

  11. Magaly please give your friend, who was attacked, a Big Crow Hug from me!
    Also, for your friend in the hospital, give her an extra rub from me! Good for you, making your friend laugh! LOL!
    I don’t understand about that person, who showed you the video? How horrible! But, I loved what you said!!!
    From the bottom of my heart to yours, enjoy the painting!!!
    Big Hugs and Much Love!!
