Charlotte’s birthday today! It’s 30 degrees out there and I remember clearly that it was the same type temperature when she was born. It’s interesting that smells and temperature can trigger some memories so easily. I’ve been thinking a bunch about this Quest conference over the last two days. It was a long shot to begin with and perhaps even not a great fit. I need to remember that I submitted the proposal in haste in the middle of all this other stuff. If it doesn’t come to fruition, don’t fret. It will happen sometime!
One thing I learned: The US is at war with itself - even in peace time. The way politicians speak to each other is falls into essentially the category of psychological war. It’s no wonder soldiers come back to the US and are completely messed up. I also liked the point about children and being alone. Kids sense that being alone is dangerous. It’s a natural primitive response to being left alone in the jungle. Trying to rid them of that is useless. Kids need to be touched 90% of the time. The more touches the better!
One piece of motivation: I really got hooked on the idea of PTSD, depression and the connection between going from a tribal setting with lots of people around to a place of extreme loneliness. It definitely happened to me after university. I really missed having people around even though it was messed up at times. Now I have lots of people around and all I want is peace and quiet! But I guess it’s just a short term solution
Three ideas: I need to figure out if adding cream to my coffee breaks my fast. I wouldn’t say it does because although it has calories, it’s still not enough to trigger the body to think it’s being fed.
