i wrote about my painful day yesterday

last night i made a plan of some things
i would do this morning -

i did them - went to the post office -
went to the beach for a morning walk
went for a coffee at the deli i usually go
to -

i found myself though - without much of a plan after that - and when i came home - the memories started to invade some - the sense of insecurity about being somehow a bad guy - or doomed -
came up - so i sat down with some apple sauce
and began to watch morning television in bed -


i knew that i was pretty much reeling from the pain of yesterday still - with the momentum -
having fallen away - feeling a little blown out inside - i knew also i had to clean up and put things in order so that i could indeed keep at life.

it was hard - but then i knew i had to make a fantasy - for some reason -
i remembered when i was a kid -
i loved to play house -

in kindergarten -

so i put on some music that seemed to be a good gentle classical music to work a day to - that's just my thing -

to play house to -
oddly it worked -

so i thought to hand it off -

talk to you guys later -

fantasy was not allowed as a child -
this seems to be good for me -

As much as feeling what we need to feel helps, it is nice to take a break from time to time. I zombie out watching scifi or work in the yard getting my back yard forest under control. We used to have a couple of horses, which I enjoyed. Anything to take the break. And taking the break for me means staying away from my artistic side. That side feels way too much. And as far as imagination goes, I lived in a dissociative state until I was about 25, so going there is a tough thing to do.

Good post. I hope your days go well for you.

How good to read your words this morning, mgb.

I've had a bit of a roller coaster ride these last couple of days myself.

Your relaxed way playing house is a good reminder that I need at times to just let myself be.

Thanks for being here today.

Regards,

mark,
that was a wonderful way to experience something so tedious , just kidding. i have kept little theo silent for so long thinking it was what we all three needed. reading your post has started some ideas rolliing about how i can let little theo abd little warrior out to play somehow. i use to color withe some children i used to know, and play some games like candyland (god, did i just admit that in public lol?). i need to find some other way to connect with them outside the abuse, and your post started me thinking on that again. thank you, mark. take care, bro.
