"Too many monsters; too little time," is one of my favorite sayings. I saw on a children's t-shirt long ago. Yet, the Andre Gide quote above provides the antidote.
There ARE too many monsters and there ISN'T enough time to slay them all, especially if you are a victim of Organized Gang-Stalking, like me. But, it's pointless to fear the monsters we can't kill; rather, we need learn to live with them.
Maybe we should view our monsters as unwelcome housepests, as if they were our extremely annoying Great Aunts, Tilly and Milly, who came for the weekend and took up permanant residence in our guestroom...
They are repetitive, sneaky, careless, a danger to us and others, OLD... but they are dug in for the duration.
Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll have the honor (synonymous with "pleasure") of burying them beneath the floorboards - IF they go first.
But, monsters come in all shapes and sizes. They have many names and some require different kinds of weapons to vanquish them.
I didn't seek out my monsters. They were left on my doorstep by my friendly neighborhood gang-stalkers. I may have placated one and procrastinated when it came to another, but I didn't feed or encourage any of them.
Still, I own them. They're mine NOW, dang it!
They are, in no particular order of importance:
》Broken-Water-Pipes and. Trench-n-Gasline (they're twins, related to Need-A-Plumber)
There are more monsters, to be sure; these are just my IMMEDIATE concerns.
Actually, if I could overcome "Not-Enough-Money", the last monster on the list, I could slay ALL the others I mention, with the possible exception s of "Ex-Handler-Returns" and "Extract-Wisdom-Teeth". These monsters require special care - and more courage than I have at the moment.
However, I DO have a "GO FUND ME" page: "Pretty in Pink Pioneer" at
Maybe, if you have one of those monster-slayers, "More-Than-Enough-Money" or "Money-To-Spare" on your side, you can help me deal with "Not-Enough-Money" - and I will get gone the rest - though hopefully NOT make room for more!
