Update 2017/12/28, Stoned on Herb, No Longer Opiated

Two days ago, I posted the following comment on the Facebook thread of my previous (opiated) update:

No longer opiated! Last night, writhing on the toilet-bowl from the pain of the constipation caused by the opiates that are meant to prevent the pain caused by my spinal condition, I realized that this is ridiculous!
So I decided to stop the opiations, & didn’t take the Targin last night or this morning. A meditation that helps me: when in pain, to remember the so many parts of me that are not in pain & to focus my feeling there; & when in motion to remember F.M. Alexander’s tai-chi-like “head held delicately forward & upward”, etc etc… Will write a blog post on this…

Later in the day I wrote the lines I’ve memed today:

Another update, from today, is in the works…

 

Pink & Green: For Love, & for Eco-care, & for People-care, & for equal rights everywhere…

Made this yin-yang meme today (using MS Paint & Word), triggered by the latest Australian Greens kerfuffle… (Green is not Pink, Pink is not Green, but unless they embrace each other so, I see little hope for either, or for any of us & our descendants).

From 1987: “OKK” [Some poetry gleaned while Collating Smatterings of Memoirings (2)]

Thirty years ago, give or take a couple of months, I wrote these lines, with their exaggerated miscalculations of the speed of what was already then known to be happening . . .
Sydney’s still here, so are the other places, so far so good, thank goodness, but also so far not so good with regard to what’s still happening  …

Some poetry gleaned while Collating Smatterings of Memoirings (2) / From 1987: GOOD BE WITH YOU …

When I imagined, made, & posted the ‘for / the good of all /& for / the goodness in all’ this morning, I had no memory at all of this piece (of which there is more in the file I copied this from)!

GOODBEWITHYOU
