It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. We are on a treatment plan to control the pain – pump Jessie full of painkillers then gradually bring them down and see how the pain reacts. Which means that I have been incredibly monstrously stoned for the past week or two. I thought I would give you a glimpse into the world that I have been living in… The Parallel Universe (PU) appears any time that I close my eyes for longer than two seconds and I am continually dopey and groggy and seeing this PU that I don’t think is there…
Firstly, there is a full menagerie in the PU. Not sure why, never really been into animals, but maybe it’s a glimpse of heaven when all animals get along beautifully (you know those children’s bible story books with the lion lying next to the lamb and the little girl). Anyway, the animals get into everything. They are very friendly, but they’re always sitting on the edge of the bed and wanting to be part of the action (mind out of gutter, please).
There’s also an ongoing television program that just mutates depending on what’s happening. Often a gameshow (the animals really like gameshows, especially Deal or No Deal) but it could be anything. We often merge gameshows and crimeshows. Lots of dramas and comedies. When Jason opens the door at night to come to bed and his silhouette is framed in the doorway the show almost always segues into King Kong. I think Jason really likes the idea of being King Kong.
We listen pretty much all day to news radio. At home, in the car, it’s pretty much always on. And when I’m in PU, I’m also in whatever the story playing on the radio happens to be.
Jason is quite prepared to converse with me on whatever I happen to have been doing for the past PU-time, regardless of whether or not it makes sense. He might not know what the principal of the school is supposed to think about a particular PU event, but he’s happy to go along with it. It will often take a PU event within a PU event to properly shake me out into reality.
Anyway, the reason for my silence has been the fact that I’ve been living in PU. I am slowly coming out of it as we get the pain medication levels right and then I will be less… eccentric. Prone to statements that make perfect sense to me, but might perhaps be a little gobbledegooky to you.
Given my energy levels (very low), my desire to see people (high), the large number of people I would like to see (high), and the books I’ve been reading lately (old-fashioned), I think I have found a way to see people without completely exhausting myself.
Sporadically, Mr and Mrs Horton will be having an At Home during which time they will open their house to visitors. Light refreshments and light conversation will be served. Cards to be left with the butler. (Butler may live in PU.) So the first one is coming up soon; I will let you know how it goes as a solution for Socialisation for Exhausted People.
This was just intended as a quick post – mainly to introduce you to the new website (how exciting!) and the Parallel Universe (I’m pretty sure that the new website and the PU are mutually exclusive.
Because this is a personal blog post, I will not talk much about the new website, but please do support it! If you’ve read a book, please write a review; if you’ve heard about an alternative therapy or treatment, we would love to hear about it; any courses and retreats? I know there are many people out there that I would just love to hear from.
I hope you are well, and that God is blessing you. Give the gazelle a goodnight kiss for me.
With great love,
