Inspired Words …are that which reach the soul and engulf the spirit as a beautiful thought. My thoughts move with the proverbial wind. (Mattered and scattered comes to mind.) When I was young, words were boring. I would “read” books by studying the illustrations. I had to grow up a lot before beginning to appreciate… Continue reading Contents

Therapy

Touched with Fire is an artful book written about bipolar disorder. That book can help the curious understand some of the various individual behaviors of a disordered brain. Mental illness is widespread and mostly undetected. My website has always been my therapist but is also geared towards the hopeful helping of others. I don’t attend… Continue reading Therapy

God Talk

High hopes… Sometimes, I can hear God more distinctly in my mind. He has to correct me a lot. Because I tend to make a lot of mistakes. I’m a stubborn human. Sometimes it takes me a while to write God’s message. I’m possessed of a busy disordered brain. Lots going on in there at… Continue reading God Talk

Moonstruck

if the moon were to speakwould it not be humbling… all our howling rebounding… Out of the primordial storm into the postmodern light… we romance the moon with loving eyes and inquisitive feet. We collectively know something of what it’s like to leave footprints on the moon. Someday we may know something of what it’s… Continue reading Moonstruck

Simply Put

The world could use a little Prozac. Especially the people that are hooked on always watching the mainstream news. It’s unhealthy mental digestion to constantly eat up the negative headlines. A better diet consists of more interaction with family and friends in a fun way. If your family reminds you of mainstream news, then perhaps… Continue reading Simply Put

Heart Felt

I just celebrated my birthday. I’m younger now than I will ever be again. Some things haven’t changed much since I was born. The human world, according to mainstream news, is still in a state of extreme evil coated chaos. Love would be a good focus for EVERYBODY. But some people are speaking out in… Continue reading Heart Felt

Mental Health

In my layman’s opinion, mental illness is a physical brain disorder and should not be completely separated from physical illness. A disordered brain will have some sort of physical failure. Either or both physically witnessed trauma (severe stress) and natural (inherited) chemical dysfunction.  Mental illness can be mild, severe, undetected and unresolved which can undermine… Continue reading Mental Health

Suicide

Note to my family and others: I have felt suicidal in the past but my long standing medical treatments are working. I’ve been stable for a long time and keep up to date with my nurse (and doctor). The following is only a reflection that I’m sharing from past experience. Suicide is the mental equivalent of… Continue reading Suicide

Bipolar

I’m like the 9 year old in your family that wants to gain your interest by banging his own little wacky doodle head with a soft plastic toy bowling pin.🤪 My grandparents made an 8mm movie reel of me doing just that. I’ve known for a very long time that my “attic” is full of… Continue reading Bipolar

Off Grid

An old/new perspective “Off grid” is a term indicating non conforming. It’s used for example, to describe a CAD datapoint that’s outside the established computer design coordinate system. It’s also used to categorize people who live in the wilderness independent from mainstream society. In Words, I write a bit about my spiritual thinking. My thoughts… Continue reading Off Grid
