i was thinking too many things at once.
usually i use twitter to get rid rid of the stuff in my head because i have no one around to tell my little silly thoughts to… but sometimes i just have so much going on and i feel like maybe i should write more than 140 characters. that’s usually when i write a lil’ somethin here.
what i was thinking today, mainly, (don’t laugh; it might come across as cheesy) is how lucky i really am. today i’m in a dental case at work- and usually dental cases we do under anesthesia are ones for patients who couldn’t normally tolerate a visit to a dentist office for procedures. my patient today has huntington’s disease– a debilitating neurological thing that usually has a late onset and leaves the body it inhabits as somewhat uncontrollable and slightly demented. this little guy i’m taking care of is 38 years old and was diagnosed six years ago. i don’t know if he has dementia quite yet, but he definitely has trouble expressing himself and controlling his movements. his demeanor is what really struck me… he was just so sweet and smiling and everything… Read the rest of this entry »

hey… anyone out there do any dream interpretation? my dreams have been really vivid and kind of disturbing lately… don’t know quite what to make of them, but it’s no fun to wake up feeling uneasy, ya know? i know dreams are kind of your subconscious just doing it’s thang & thinking about stuff while you’re asleep (that’s how i think about it anyway) but as of right now? me no like. i guess what it comes down to is that i’ve been frustrated with an old friend who pretty much has been incommunicado for a good while now but has been appearing several times a week in my dreams. there may be a reason and there may not be a reason, but either way, it hurts my feelings and now it’s apparently hurting my subconscious’s feelings. and since i can’t make my subconscious go to counseling… i guess i gotta work it out on my own. 🙂 so if you’re out there, old friend, please stop haunting my dreams. come downstairs & say hello. i only wish you well and i hope some day we meet again.
good morning, starshine… the earth says hello. happy earth day. my inner hippie spirit is all about celebrating nature and playing in the sunshine… alas, i’m working all day and probably won’t get much of an outdoor experience. sadness! good thing i did my super long hike yesterday… up & around stone mountain with a little jogging in the middle. yeah! me, jogging! crazy, no? my hips are calling me crazy, anyway. ouch. i should already be “training” for the peachtree but i guess yesterday was my first attempt at running in a good while. dunno how long that’s gonna last 🙂 probably walk most of it, like usual 🙂 but that’s another story for another month. today, since i can’t be outside, i’ll be celebrating instead by listening to the HAIR soundtrack. love it! definite favorite. chock-full of peace, love, & happiness. makes me wanna go to a Be-In or go protest something. can’t wait to see it live on broadway again… perhaps this summer, since the madre wants to go back. also for earth day, we’ve got a great show courtesy of daveFM on sunday night with GUSTER (!!!) and Ben Harper. what a way to close out an awesome weekend of music! friday night is My Morning Jacket and saturday brings my favorite frenchmen Phoenix back to town. too bad i’m working all day saturday and sunday. *sigh* gotta give it up, people. gotta give it up.
i’ll write all about my coachella fun soon so you can be super jealous. hey, there’s still time to get ready for bonnaroo. i’m making my list already. 🙂 peace! -j.
