The image above is the actual headstone of Stewart (aka Sears) Walker from the novelette Dark Matter. I have concocted a short podcast about the new scents for Dark Matter and autumn. Take a listen.


Possets on iTunes

Possets now has two podcasts on iTunes. They are through two different podcasting organizations and I am going to be using them both. You can subscribe to Possets’ podcasts for FREE through iTunes. How? Easy:

  • Turn on iTunes
  • Click on iTunes Store
  • Click on Podcasts from the nav bar at the top
  • Search for Possets
  • You will have two possible podcasts to subscribe to
  • Subscribe to both, they are free
  • Now you will be in the know about Possets and perfume

I will be podcasting away about a lot of things: Dark Matter, fall fragrances, patchouli and its variation, forbidden fragrances, and talking a bit about some of the perfumes that I have made so far. I also hope to have sample packs to illustrate my podcasts and tie all of the media together so that there are concentrations of one topic which is a whole lot of fun.

I have been working on this for a long time and it’s finally ready to launch. I hope you enjoy it and I will be putting up links to the podcasts as soon as they are ready.


…we get some cool and enjoyable weather! It has been sizzling here for months and this morning I woke up feeling a chill in the air. That is such a relief. Now I can start wearing my heavier perfumes to go along with heavier sweaters and nifty fall things I put away last year. I need to get out there and gather some images and videos for a few YouTubes on great fall (Halloween) subjects. I have just about gotten the podcasting situation straightened out and am raring to do a set of media on a subject for your amusement. I love taking one theme and developing it. I have to think of a good fall theme to explore with you so stay alert because it is coming.

The Smooth Tablet

For years I have watched chipmunks leap and scurry around my deck. It was an old deck, wooden with nails and boards, nothing modern. It was there when we bought the house and I cared for it for years. I painted it, scrubbed it, fussed when there was algae on it, and bought the potion du jour to keep it in trim every year.

Time marched on and the deck became too craggy to really keep up with. The paint rubbed off, nails lifted up, parts of it would fall off in small increments. It was obvious that something had to be done to fix it but I was reluctant. Why? There was so much wildlife in and around it. It seemed like a sanctuary for lizards, chipmunks, and the occasional and harmless garter snake.

Alas, the time came when one of the boards became recurved and was obviously not going to resume it’s old benign shape. Nails popped out and other boards split. It was time to get rid of it and put in something else.

The men came yesterday to tear it up so they could put in a new patio. I watched as they pulled out the boards and nails of the old one which had sheltered countless small animals from summer heat and winter cold. I was expecting to see a warren of holes, nests, seed shells and wazzles of old hair from nests. I thought I would find a set of highways and hollows that would make everyone stop and stare. What I found was nothing. Nothing at all was left from all the creatures which had trod under the boards. You would never have known that there had been anything at all under the deck ever. No chipmunk metropolis, ant capitals, or lizard-dromes.

Maybe this shows you how gently the animal kingdom treats the earth, maybe this shows you that I was too fascinated with what I saw which was actually much more sparse than in other areas. I can only say I was a bit shocked and disappointed to find that there was only flat sand to be seen, and I felt a bit like Robert Burns but without disturbing a mouse’s home.

Rumors of Rain

“They” say that we are going to get some real rain today. I hope “they” are right. I have not seen real H2O fall from the sky for a very long time. Actually, there was a bit Friday but it only blasted for about 10 minutes and that was that.

The Hummingbirds are feeding in a frenzy now. They are getting ready for their long flight to Mexico, thousands of miles these tiny birds fly every year. They return in the late spring. We get the ruby throated variety.

Last week I was in exercise class. We have a great view of a highway with a huge expanse of sky to watch as we dance and cavort. When I turned to get a drink, there was a convoy of Canadian geese on their way absolute South. The highway runs North-South and the geese were using it as a, well, highway. Sad to see them go knowing that winter is coming but spring wouldn’t be so exciting without it.
