My family was easily annoyed with me. I had eaten too much seafood when we drove home to Maine. I guess I tried to make up for not being home for five years-in a week. I told my doctor, but he prescribed new meds. Meds I didn't want-because what goes up must come down. I wanted to skip a few days of meds-no, that isn't the way to treat this-I was told. I was too fast, bouncing like a top into things, eventually I wobbled into a slow dance and then a standstill. I tried to explain-likely too much iodine, but nothing worked. So, I took the pale pink pills and ended up too slow. I haven't felt like this since I was diagnosed 15 yrs ago-a human Tilt o' Whirl. I am better now!
I have missed all of you, missed blogging, missed the sense of community! People in my real world label me crazy, weird and an artist. I use to feel odd about the labels, but now I laugh. I see potential in everything, a fallen leave, a piece of string, and yes, a water bottle.
A gift for my daughter out of a coffee bag and a water bottle. Yeah-sometimes I think I am cursed and other times I think it is a gift-it depends on the day!
I believe we are all creative-most of us tuck it away, hide it for a rainy day, or worse-for later in life! WE all need to be creative now-it is a gift, an escape, a portal to bridge your inner and outer worlds! Find a way every day to use your gift-I laugh at the crazy comments, now. I actually smile and think yeah-I'm different!
Pharrell Williams on the TV show, The Voice said, "I'm weird, we are weird, you are weird, being the same is lame!" Ok, maybe that wasn't the exact quote but it is close. Yes, birds of a feather flock together, but some birds are blue, others red and some have yellow on their heads. Oh, damn I don't want to sound like Dr. Seuss.
Be the best you!
The Dr. said it better:
So, love the flaws, the weird and crazy-to heck with those who think you are lazy!
