ADDITIONAL yet to come... (Still breathing hard)
detailed Household bibliographic data and filmography including

though I'm eager to revise this page and continue working on it, ability to schedule time taunts me. Things certainly are more like they are now than they have ever been before. Which is to say, I am as fascinated by books and all that as I have ever been, and no less keen on cleaving a path through all else to satiate my bibliographic desire.

Created by Lindsay Geronimo Crawford, known in a previous life as Lindsay Stuart, circa 1963-1983.

Thank you for visiting my page, wretched Angelfire thing though it are, yet here I remain until I learn better or as long as they let me be.

I sometimes toy with E-MAIL AT: (hint: remove the ~)
should I find motivation to check this more often I would not mind, I suppose. Long ago I wore myself out with email back and forth, only to founder in ennui, and what comes after.

It may be possible for me to initate an wretched Angelfire blog. Or, as was said in The Hudson Brothers 1983 film Hysterical, we're doomed!

Always keep in mind Eeyore's sound query:
Why be pessimistic?
Probably wouldn't work anyway.

  • you've got a good imagination
  • if you can imagine anyone reading this
  • being alone
  • being ignored
  • being tormented
  • being abused
  • being ridiculed
  • being forgotten
  • being shunned
  • being destroyed
  • being disappointed
  • being grateful for all I have been given
  • thank you for being so kind and loving
  • you know who you are, though I'm doubtful
  • On behalf of those who feel they are helping me
  • feeling cared about renews my ability to care
  • I will care for myself and others anyway
  • In case there is someone who will share their love
  • Before I die
  • I expect to live long
  • Before death brings release from mortal agony
  • Despite my fun-filled existence I am in no hurry
  • to board that train to elsewhere
  • we all arrive sooner or later
  • so what difference does it make?
  • none that I can see
  • I would comfort someone sad, if I were accepted
  • Would anyone do that for me?
  • Hope fights against all odds.
  • I searched the world over.... no wait, I'm still searching....
  • This could all change tomorrow, tomorrow could change all this
