Get out of Damaged Mind
“Yesterday”, as the cliché goes, “was the beginning of the rest of my life….”
(while your reading, why not click on this link for some lovely and relaxing music by Taylor Davis, this is a sweet song)
< I found an awakening in my in the last year or so, music really inspires me to remembers sometimes though always it elicits emotions and thoughts. >((now if you don’t want to read my wandering thoughts here are two sites that have some info on the brain as well, from a helpful music sort of way ! ))
Taylor Davis – two of my fav pieces she has made;
Awakening – Taylor Davis (Original Song)
and He’s a Pirate (Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean Theme) Violin – Taylor Davis
here is a link to a collaboration with Taylor Davis and Peter Hollens… Both exceptional talents
Doctors always ask what is worse your memories of the present or of the past !
Answer any are bad aren’t they? Long term memory is shot full of holes, recent past memories worse, yesterday is sometimes only a shadow yet some days cling on like ‘Will nots’
Sometimes I dream, sometimes it is a nightmare, some days are in fog some are crystal clear. Which is the true reality, the dream state or the waking state? The Matrix for real!
This week was an experiment, no meds for 5 days. Background info for me; brain injury, fibromyalgia, arthritis just to name a few. Taking Cymbalta to help with the pain and depression, which of course I have depression after dealing with the Health Care Profession in Canada, anyone would be Depressed.
The experiment was better and worse than expected. When on the meds, I have hardly any emotions, foggy like brain and no and I mean no creativity.
Day 1-3 not too much difference
Day 4-5 lots of desire to do things, lots of creativity, but lots and lots of pain as well.
Day 5 evening… depression, anxiety, anger, conflict
Day 5 evening, took meds again … or ….
I found the desire to create to make and to write, the positive. The negative was so much pain I would hardly be able to write this out. Migraines as well, then sleep issues of only being able to sleep 3 hrs a day (no… no naps either) So tired and exhausted state of being.
Two days in a row found me waking with entire stories running around in my empty head. The dreams were so life-like in colour and very visceral. The dreams were almost like a God like perspective one day, then a first person singular, through the lens out of the eyes perspective the other time. Neither stories in the writing Genre that I favour either.
Scramble to find paper and pen, or run out to get laptop fired up to create this writing, this visceral experience to paper or pixels. Distracted, thoughts fading away to a but a foggy memory.
The stories are gone now, lost in the fog lost in my mind, so, get out of my damaged mind. Allow me to put thought to paper again and allow me to feel free. Yesterday I did a small project I had been wanting to do for a long time now. Meds and forgetfulness do not go together. If your reading this and have a normal mind then you will never understand unless you think back to a day that you had a severe head cold or was crying at a funeral. How dark and foggy the mind was, well TADA, similar, o so similar.
My last post was related to music, the music and emotions that come with listening and in this case seeing the visuals associated with the artist. Lindsay Stirling a pixie of a person though the presence of a giant, remember it is not what you look like it is what you project. Taylor Davis today’s music treat similar though very different sort of person and style. Both would enable you to fulfil any projects or emotions you might have. (According to Larousse Chambers dictionary, fulfil is BE – British English and fulfill is AE- American English… who knew before this??)
Still reading?? This is the longest piece I have written in a long time. This is sort of creative, sort of wandering though not a story and not a poem, so this is just a reflection and spasm of thoughts.

10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Greenwood Conservation Area2290 Greenwood Road, Ajax, ON
Calling all Preppers, Self reliant, Homesteaders, Bush Crafters and well anyone who want to learn really !
My Country should do this,
our Province should do this,
the Region should do this
and the city I am in needs to do this…
Sad that nobody has the cahoonies to do what is right anymore, except actual Present and Past Military Members.
Pro Patria, and I very much mean…. Pro Patria .. Latin… look it up… non RCR types/wogs and logs along with civies !
Soldiers know peace, they pray for peace for the alternative is Hell on Earth.
Defend your freedoms before it is too late. In the old days People from all over the globe came to the Americas, Canada and the USofA where they left all the old crap and hostilities behind in the old world.
Now the Muslims pour into the countries, birth themselves into the countries and try to force Sharia Law down our thoughts. They try to restrict and rescind all the social gains for Women in the last 100 yrs. They try to commandeer everything in their path as the one and only path.
Yet, they are one of the children of the Book. Only one, not the one.
There is so much to say, some will unsubscribe some will cry foul, yet others will think, yet others will agree, hopefully all with think for themselves!
Pro Patria, while we still are able.
ps… big gov and big militarized outfitted gov employees with little training who are only a small step above Mall Cops in training and thoughts. This is you as well, get a grip and give the land back to the people !
Loving yourself as a girl, woman and as a person

Edited in for content;

Here is another and it is so cute, a fountain in a park,
dancers all !
edited for thoughts;
= WHY….. why post this… why share…. why do we do what we do?
My thoughts during dinner were to share in these dark days of strife and grief. If I only make one person smile, make another hear the beauty that is Humans at our best then I have done what I want to carry out. If but two people see the similarities in each of us, does that not draw in each of our hearts and thoughts together?
When we focus on the similarities, the sameness of each other vs. the differences, we find that there is really no difference from anyone, anywhere around this blue globe of ours.
Share a thought, share and image, share an emotion, share a feeling of wonder and beauty for let us celebrate what is good in all of us, what is similar and treasured.
Go walk in the light away from the shadows away from the grief,
writing and meds do not go along together :(
No I am not doing illicit drugs, just meds to help my health and pain levels.
Do they work, yes.
Do they leave you with hardly any emotion and creativity, yes, in my case they do.
So for all the few of you who follow and believe in me, I apologise !! Some days there is so little creativity that I look at my dog in wonder that she plays with her imaginary friends and foes.
Now if any of you have any ideas besides, stopping them for a few days so I have some creativity, please let me know.
Cheers for now wild_E
