Linda’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “me.” Find a word that starts with “me” or use the word “me” as the theme of your post. Have fun!

Message me, I tapped.

Meanwhile, no answer. Nothing is worse than a lack of response. Especially if you are a mom.

We moms have huge imaginations. If there is a worse case scenario we’ve witnessed it in our heads. From that idea comes the litany of emotional repercussions. They hate us. We hurt them unbearably, we’re sure.

Rationale doesn’t hit. We have to work to find it.

Finally, there’s a new message.

Sorry, Mom. I was asleep. Or I was working.

Total relief from meandering worry, and the mess in our heads. Maybe we need to up the meds.


Thank you, Linda and Kim.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 27th, 2022, is “understanding.” Use the word “understanding” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Understanding our differences and loving each other not just in spite, but because of said difference is the path to peace.

Even better, if we spend time to understand ourselves we’ll see our reflection in others.

When we cry or laugh together we show our understanding.

Okay maybe too glib but I believe these in my heart. I’m still working on all of it.

Note to Self



Black and white has been the constant of my life. It was the nightmares, yet the bright dreams, too. When earliest memories are of sitting in front of the keys and perfection demanded, black and white. No shades of gray.

Suddenly black and white was a super power. I dreamed my house was piano keys. That I had a swimming pool in my black and white kitchen no gray needed.

Per Ms. Hill:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “black, gray, and white.” Use one, use ’em all. Bonus points if you use all three. Have fun!


Remember last year when we couldn’t remember what day it was? Yeah. Today.

Between recovering from the Monday doctor’s appointment/shopping trip, and finding myself unhappy with eating eggs, not doing that again, I’m so tired and confused.

Hope you are all having a smoother time of it.


The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of DepressionThe Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression by Andrew Solomon
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I don’t know who recommended this book for me. Whoever, thank you! This was so interesting!

Having borrowed the Libby audio narrated by the author, I now hope to buy the book someday.

The thing is, this is more than a book about depression, or even one person’s account of his own journey. This book includes a bit of history of the diagnosis and treatment for centuries. It also includes how the disorder affects different socioeconomic sets of people.

I highly recommend this for anyone who has gone through depression or know of others who might be suffering. It leads to not only a deeper understanding, but medical issues and ways to find health.

Have to do with utter breakdowns, sweaty palms, shaking uncontrollably?

Noive! As our Cowardly lion taught us. Okay, the word is Nerve but I always heard him say it noive. I lose my nerve on phonecalls (answering or making–any that aren’t family and friends), speaking on stage. Meeting new people (though I love meeting new people!) and I used to–and probably would again since it’s been so long–singing solos. But what I learned from that lion is that if you do your best to memorize the song, dress up and look your best, and play the part of someone confident I can sing. The song that goes with that noive for me is sung by Maria Von Trapp: I have confidence. When I can internalize that song I can psych myself the nerve.

Day off of writing. Knitted a bit. I just can’t decide how long I want to make the cuff so about the time I think I’m ready to remove it I add a little more cuff and like it better. I think I’ll give it another inch. But gosh it feels good to knit!

Do you feel like you have more days of nada? Okay, I did have a game in my hand on my cell phone. Is that what I’ve become? That makes today a black hole.  I do realize it is Sunday as we watched CBS Sunday Morning. But not getting to sleep until 4:30 this morning. Nighttime seems awake time. Day time is distraction time. Total immersion in everything. I didn’t even think this stuff was bothering me. Nothing is different for us, the retired couple for ages before the weird. But weirdness. Especially on shopping days. Though my husband and I don’t go being the oldest here. But my brother and son go. Guilt that they are going, and risking for us makes it harder. Worrying that we might not clean good enough or that they might have caught something while out. So from Friday on through the weekend the stress wipes me out and hits on my ADD so that I am hyperfocused on anything but the craziness.

Oh, and shoot! I just lost my daily posting goal. I didn’t know it was so close to midnight. So yeah. Monday. #WDIIA
