Dusk

A transition from clarity toward feeling one’s way. Light bleeding away toward a silence, a time to contemplate or to avoid self. In the back of the mind, because one has prepared for this after life’s experiences, one knows a light, a bright spot of grace is there to illuminate the way. There’s comfort in knowing the darkness is at bay.

Fly Fishing & PTSD (Easing the Burdens………..)

Nature has the ability to ease our burdens, to re-center parts of us at least. Here is a piece by Martha Hyde on the benefits of fly fishing in easing the traumas of PTSD. Wounded Warriors Project is but one example of this. Standing alone with the swirl of traumas is a very lonely place to be. The draw of the waters and the mental process of fly fishing and perhaps fly tying is quite therapeutic for many.

Life = Pilliing (Livin’ It?)

Life = “…pilling is the formation of small, fuzzy balls on the surface of a fabric. It detracts from the appearance of the fabric, making it look old and worn, and it is often difficult to restore a garment with fabric pilling to its original condition. Certain types of fibers and weaves are more prone to fabric pilling than others, but it is often a normal part of wear and tear.”

Pilling Along The Way (SwittersB)

Live your life. Pills are a normal part of life. If you haven’t got any, what the hell are you waiting for? If you do, embrace them your sorry son of a bitch!  Ok, I just watched “We Were Soldiers” A bit over inspired, perhaps.

No, I recently ran into an old acquaintance from another life of say 25 years ago. A life boxed and compartmentalized for  sanity’s sake. He remarked about some ol’ timers he had run into from the old, hard days and how those men all were stuck back in negativity and the past. We shook our heads knowing it was wasteful, but looking over our shoulder to be careful negativity was not looming. I raised my glass to that old friend and saluted where we had been, and more importantly, where we were now. In the present! To the past (if you can remember it) and to the present and future. Rough up that fabric. Oh, psycho babble aside, if the lid on the box is ajar; close it.
