agoraphobic philosopher says

I say what I mean I mean what I say
I am not mean to ruin your day
you’ve misunderstood what I say

consider there’s considerations at play
sun above earth below another day
blue moon tonight howl and bay

 

 

I enjoy the Cowboy Junkies most haunted version of this song and while Elvis was hardly the only one who recorded that song, I think his is the most heart rendering version. Sorta like kd lang’s Halleluh is the best version of the Leonard Cohen song, because only her version captures the rapture and the kink subtext of the bible story.

 

so really, as a writer, I can tell you that you can’t really understand anything until you can understand the subtext and nuances.

 

and, as a person in trauma recovery. I can also tell you all that unless a person can understand nuance and subtext…. You really can’t understand anything around you.

 

In some ways, having people treat you like you are normal is the worst thing ever, because you are not normal and your responses are not normal and your understanding of what’s going on around you is not normal. Your perceptions are altered and it’s difficult for people who have not been through trauma or depression to understand that.

 

I am grateful every day to my roommates Rhonda and Lorne who support and accommodate my strange behaviours and remind me every day of who I used to be and they celebrate with me, throughout the day, the person that I have now become.

 

I am grateful every day to my online support system of friends too, some of whom I have known for almost 20 years over various sites, http://www.zoetrope.com and http://www.thewritersbuilding.org! YEAH WRITERS  and more recent friends on Facebook of all places.

 

Yeah facebook! cheaper than therapy, but not as fun as bubble wrap! LOL

Not just being able to laugh at oneself, but also the nature and frequency – the range and variation of humour able to be expressed.

 

Because it’s not just about the ability to read and express emotions and limit social capablity to being able to merely respond in kind or in proportion.

 

But also the ability to display a complexity and nuances, a variety of behaviours and not come across as rigid or stiff and uncomfortable. Behavioral markers people should be paying attention to in their would be political, religious, workplace or social group leaders.

 

We know enough history and enough about behavioural psychology to be vigilant at the ballot boxes to ensure that the citizens will never need to be armed against the government.

 

and the measure of a civilization is not the technology or the complexity of production of wealth.

 

but in the quality of life of the citizens and the social contract being fair, equitable and easy for each person individually and sub groups collectively to be able to work and play well with each other in a way that every person has the ability and access to opportunities to work at their best and fullest capacity in accordance with their interest and effort.

 

to have shelter and food security, basic survival to be so assured a given as to really not be a worry.

because if you have to worry about your literal survival on a daily basis. then that’s unjust and unsupportable in a global awareness community.

 

and there’s really no excuse for anyone individual or nation to be isolationist when the world is literally and meaningfully accessible to you on your fucking cell phone or computer or other net gadget.

 

Invented by atheists and gays. seriously. we’re scientists, inventors, artists.

 

we make your world worth living and fun

 

so think about that the next time you say that we don’t know what love is all about.

 

because the piece of paper that marriage is and the rights that they trigger

 

don’t compare to what love is really about and commitment

People post a lot of things on facebook that reveal an awful lot about themselves as people. More often than not, far more than they ever release.

So one thing that I have noticed that people post about is their challenges in life.

So I would like to share one of mine.

Today I learned that the absolutely most scary combination of words to say in the whole of the English Language, whatever version of English that you use.

I am scared and I need help.

And the reason I know that is because I just had a panic attack that was so mild and safe for me, that I was finally able to WHISPER THOSE WORDS in the safety of my bedroom, in my own house that I share with Rhonda K. Jackson and Lorne Szmek and their daughter Dayel.

Because Lorne has gone to work and Rhonda’s sleeping. So I am the responsible adult in the house for a nine year old child and I can’t be having crying sobbing screaming running around the house in a panic kind of attack under the circumstances.

So being responsible to other people in addition to being in a loving and supportive environment with Rhonda who I worked with 12 years ago at another abusive corporate culture department. I mean, I am at home on disability from Department number 7 of the ones that I worked at over 13 years.

and it amazing to me to see the difference in health, physically at least that is discernible from the two videos.
but the happiest video that I made was this one for my Mom, doing my Grandmother’s favorite song and I sang it in my best Anne Murray!
I’ve been getting so much practise with story telling and joking around with my roommates that I have really gotten my sense of humour back – and that’s the most critical element to mental health. That I even tried to work out a actual stand up comedian routine so I made a comedy video, based on a short script that I had written several years ago for a now defunt Vancouver acting comedy group, The Sweet Tarts.
Because your sense of humour is also where your sense of perspective and sense of proportionality comes from.
if you can’t laugh at yourself, then you don’t get to laugh at others.
Because if all you do is laugh at others, then you are a bully. It’s that plain and simple.
In any case, your sense of humour allows you to cope, find ways to be happy and find joy regardless of your circumstances.

That’s not blowing smoke nor being Pollyanna neither.

 

Although, Haley Mills was my first baby dyke crush before I discovered Kristy MacNicol in Little Darlings!

 

 

aaaaa Little Darlings……

 

 

 

Just 30 SECONDS of watching television the brain begins to produce alpha waves, which indicates torpid (almost comatose) rates of activity.

The radiant light and flicker rates of TV cause the brain to drop down to a level of activity somewhere between Alpha and Theta – essentially a sleepy dreamlike state of mind where the higher critical functions are turned off.

Any information imbibed from t

he TV by-passes our logical, critically thinking sieve and goes straight into those sub areas of the mind associated with more emotive response.

Most of the Public is under Hypnotic Programming through a Near Dream-like Trance Mindset. Overall, Our Brain Waves have Slowed Dramatically over the past 50 years.

Solutions: Turn Off Your TV, Meditate, Listen To Truth and Infowar Talk Radio, Intake enough Essential Oils and Healthy Saturated Fats, and Daily Liquid Mineral Supplement..
