I’ll be posting a lot more about it soon. Probably tomorrow. Pretty interesting thing.
I’m a believer in “causal coincidences” as Carl Jung would put it. More soon.
It’s snowing here in upper Michigan. Schools are closed. So I have a fire going and the snow is nice to see out the French doors.
I’ve been working on my novel and will post bits of it here and there on Substack.
I’ve increased my calories trying to build muscle, eat closer to maintenance most of the time. That seems to be going pretty well. It will be chicken wings and salad tonight with a whey protein shake for after dinner. Had eggs and bacon for breakfast with a touch of orange juice since I can’t tolerate vitamin C supplements.
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…

It’s snowing! I’m not sure whether I’m happy we didn’t get snow this year, or upset. On one hand I’m happy I didn’t have to drive in it, but on the other hand… it was 83 degrees outside today which is NOT normal. I hope the novel is going well!
I have a “vague” idea of the vagus nerve and will watch for your follow ups.
We’ve got snow and c-c-c-c-cold. I miss our woodburning stove.
Very cold here, Abby, and a bit of snow, though we are done until Monday when we get 4.5 more inches. We hadn’t had much this winter until now, but very white out there now! Happy Saturday.
