I hope it’s a great weekend for you all. I make headway on my back and stomach issues — I’ve been here a year taking care of my dad and have no doctors up here! So I had to go to emergency because no gastro guys would see me. My downstate doctor ordered the MRI’s for my back, so those will be done next week. And now I’ll get a referral to a gastro guy. Yuck. But my bloodwork was good and the ultrasound was ok as well. So they added another ulcer med in the meantime.
I have to figure out how to navigate this stress since it is at least aggravating this if not causing it outright. I am not for these ulcer meds, but short term might be necessary. Get me on the right path.
My daughter and son-in-law and my little grandson JM come to see me Saturday and that will make me smile.
Here we are at Halloween. I need to get some more pictures of him loaded into WordPress this weekend. He has a new paddling pool out there that will keep the fellow busy.
Some rain in the forecast unfortunately, but the temps are warming here finally.
End of Deadfall story coming up–I can’t believe I got side-tracked with this pain and didn’t post it — sorry folks.
Happy Friday. Enjoy yourselves with family and have faith — remember this country is good and will be again. Breathe the good air — here in northern Michigan it’s been clean and clear. Some restaurants will re-open, though we personally are not candidates for them with high risk folks here — not yet.
But we’ll smoke a pork roast for some tacos and do some rare tuna with wasabi and pickled ginger. Some nice breakfasts.
I love words so I write them. I’ve been doing that since I was old enough to read. I am a published literary writer and I was an adjunct English professor at Northern Michigan University for many years. I write and live and love off the grid on 35 acres and a trout stream in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with my son, Joshua, who has Down Syndrome, and with an English Shepherd dog named Maggie, and with my husband when he can make it here which isn’t often. This blog started out being about my work, and it will continue to be. ( I’m working on a novel about premonitions and dreams.) But this blog is also about living off the grid and about my experimentation with diet—most recently the Carnivore Diet. I started on the Ketogenic diet, but have moved into Carnivore. How long, I don’t know. But I’ve become interest in the effects of diet on not just my health, but on creativity. And I’m interested in the effects of the diet on my dreams.
Ah, dreams... The day before my son was born, my mother “dreamed” or was told my son would have Down Syndrome, something she told my brother ahead of time. I’ve never known what to make of that. So I’m interested in prophetic dreams, lucid dreaming, creativity and dreams, night terrors. Who isn't interested in that? I’m interested in Freud (more Jung) and Einstein’s theories of time and how their ideas inform my dreams. I’m interested in mining a deeper relationship with a dream world not confined to daytime experiences, and how the night might inform a more fully imagined daytime “reality.” And vice-versa. Which is the dream?? I’m exploring dreams of all sorts. Come explore with me…
