“A true dreamer is one who knows how to navigate in the dark”.” ~ John Paul Warren
“Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone.” ~ Thomas de Quincey
“Without inspiration the best powers of the mind remain dormant. There is a fuel in us which needs to be ignited with sparks.” ~ Johann Gottfried Von Herder
There are dark clouds to the south. The forecast mentioned snow around sunrise but that clearly ain’t happenin’. Still, the shadow hour, right before sunrise, feels sweet and nearly splendid. Empathy is the vanguard issue today; I can feel it coming. I’m an introvert by nature. When the head trauma and NDE happened in 1984 filters fell away, those filters of the variety that protect us from conscious awareness of just how much there is “out there”. Those filters gone, or at least rendered irrelevant, left way for scabs that never came. The wounds became timeless, and overstimulation became a very real ongoing concern. You can unwind at home after a day out in the world, but when you are exposed to such a massive flow of psychic impressions on a regular basis you’d be wise to go a few steps further than simply unwinding each day. The toxins just plain gotta be flushed out on occasion, chemical and otherwise. That’s what today has in store. One big whatever. I plan to make the most of it.
All is well. Goof gloriously.
