Mental health is a fundamental right; the future of humanity depends on it.
I Knew A Girl Once
I knew a girl once. She was nice. Really nice. Perhaps a little too nice. Let me tell you a tale about her. She would do anything for anybody. She would ask for nothing in return. Expected nothing in return.
AM It’s not getting up on the wrong side of the bed that sets a bad tone for the day. It’s waking up, looking in the mirror, and seeing a face— your face— dotted with cherry acne.
Under Weather Dreamscape
Sicken days comes when they come. Something slowly that sneaks up right when you least expect it. Slow breathing, body aching and mind feeling distorted. You travel to the land of dreams in search something familiar. Feeling so weak you want nothing to do but fall into a meditative state where your body becomes dormant. Plunding into the abyss of mental weight lifting. Swirling side to side in a dizzy fade. Unmotivated and trapped into a sea of traps. Falling through the traps and weighted down the hole of despair.
Lennox Head Surf Club Kiosk
Waking in a small fibro house, mind busy. It is 5:32 AM. Strolling down the sidewalk to the nature strip adjacent to Seven Mile Beach, the street is empty. One familiar vehicle soon approaches before driving past to purchase their dawn brew. The town is growing exponentially, but there are many residents I still know.
Hold the door, offer your jacket, say please and thank you, buy her flowers. Put a napkin on your lap, never eat the last slice of cake, know the difference between your soup spoon and dessert spoon. Never ask a woman her age. Don’t just ask how her day was, listen to what she says. Give up your seat on the metro, treat those in the service industry with respect and dignity, walk her home, never leave the party without thanking the host.
Small is the word most often used to describe me. It is not meant to be an insult, just an objective observation. Sometimes it is even used in a positive context, a synonym for cute. If I stand as straight as possible, I am a mere five foot six inches. My weight fluctuates between 95 and 105 pounds.
Everybody Went Ghost
Everybody went ghost. 😱 Nothing has changed...things are only getting worse. Bad people always seem to win but I'm not going to believe that. I have no idea what to do and where to go from here. I have tried everything I can think of. I'm limited in my resources and I have no clue what to do.
On the difficulty of interpretation
It is not easy to posit a reason or cause when faced with misfortune, even if the degree is relatively minor. The term gaslighting has been used to describe what in college campuses are occasionally referred to as microaggressions. The way these are treated tend to range from outright dismissal, as is often the case when the perspective which deems it such may have confronted rather more direct or abusive forms of violence. Or they are incorporated into what is commonly understood as the culture of a campus or milieu.
Step Aside Blowhards
Stop holding your breath. You’re so blue in the face that the purplish hue is starting to take over. I’m kinda over angry blowhards.
Autistic Child Development
Psychologically punishment should not be meted to special needs in human life but does punishment simply means training or just an act that implies in child's development. Punishment impedes the development of autistic child. Autism is a broad term used to describe a group of neurodevelopmental disorders.
The Creative Mind:
The Creative Mind: Genius or Madness Creativity...the spark that ignites the fires of passion and fuels the burning desire that drives one's need for self-expression. But, what underlying factors produce that spark? Is creativity the genius of illuminated moments of clarity, or is it brief interludes into madness?
Dotted throughout the rising foothills along the coast are fires stoked by man. The cherished gift and sacrifice Prometheus gave our species. Something that would one day allow us to rival the gods. The cost was dear, but honored and revered by all. But the world is entirely ignorant of the efforts of the unsung protector of our race, Epimetheus, in preserving the rights of mankind.
