Good Morning Terrestrials!
I finally figured out my blog schedule - All I have to do is mimic mr parkinson’s schedule and it will all work out.
One of the easiest ways for me to lose weight is to find a skinny friend, one that has been skinny all of their lives. and mimic their activity level and eat only what they eat for 3 months. I will lose weight. I would not recommend it to anyone, the only papers I have are from Zig Zag, see a real doctor first.
If that works with losing weight then it only makes sense that it would work in other areas. By mimicking the schedule of the reason I write this blog in the first place, the reason besides free panty hose and the all you can eat soft serve ice cream machine. By mimicking the schedule mr parkinsons has put me on I should be able to derive my own. Simply, when I feel good I will write - when I feel bad, I won’t. There is but one problem - mr parkinsons has no schedule. He can do whatever he wants to do, whenever he wants. I never know when I’m going to feel bad, or when I’m going to feel good. He can do whatever he wants to do, and I am the one that pays the price.
When I refer to mr parkinsons I am talking about the disease not the man whose name they attached to it because he first cataloged the symptoms. By the way that is like naming butter after someone just because they discover that it tastes good. I hold no ill will against Dr. Parkinson - it’s his namesake disease I despise. Notice I capitalized the man’s name but not the disease’s, no never, not ever. It has not earned even that amount of respect from me.
For example this morning at 12:30am I open my eyes after 3 hours sleep. I felt fairly good but still pretty drowsy. When I realized I wasn’t going to go back to sleep I Woke up, fell out of bed, Dragged a comb across my head, Found my way downstairs and drank a cup, And looking up I noticed I was late, Found my coat and grabbed my hat, Made the bus in seconds flat, Found my way upstairs and had a smoke,
And somebody spoke and I went into a dream... that’s when I started writing to you. Heck I might still be asleep.
This is what I was just listening to, that’s the reason for the reference to some of the lyrics. I tell you this so you will know that I am still aware that reality and songs are not the same. It’s called free association, one of the many things that we do naturally as children but have drilled out of us. Along with playing pretend - laughing - hugging - stretching - and running for fun. More about laughing in a bit.
Although the Big Event Weekly Wrap Up Edition will be on Friday. the rest of the days will vary in length from a one sentence quote, or a simple picture to a full page (or more) rant. These should be posted everyday except for the days that they aren’t. And the post time will also be at mr p’s will. Don’t worry I might be hurting now but in a minute I’ll be better. Now if I could only lose him out in West Texas, but that wouldn’t be fair to the desert.
Two Simple, Basic, and Quick Things
Laughter Yoga... get ready, for it’s coming to River City. If you are unfamiliar here’s the WikiHOW page concerning it. I’m not sure (and I will research it thoroughly) but I believe anyone is qualified to teach it or lead a group in it. So, soon (I’ll let you know) I am going to start the Riverside Laughing Club. This is just the beginning stage so all times and days are subject to change.
I was thinking of Memorial Park - right in the center of the field. Noon or 10am on Saturday to begin with then if things progress and we grow in numbers I can add Sunday then weekdays possibly leading up to every day of the week. I believe laughing is one of the few things in life you can’t get too much of. After we are through with the laughing, for those who wish to participate we will give each other a 30 second hug - after reading others and conducting my own studies I believe laughter and long tight non-sexual hugs can improve your mood, your outlook, and your overall mental health. So, come laugh with us (Ho Ho Hee Hee Hee Ha Ha Ha.) I guess technically it will be called the Riverside Laughing and Hugging Club. Two simple, basic, and quick things that can and will improve your life.
I’m going to study for as long as needed to make sure I am leading you right and that I meet any certification requirements. As soon as I have all my Ducks on the same page we’ll start.
Have a great weekend and don’t forget to laugh, hug a friend, stretch and be good to yourself!
just say yes!
meet Andy Ward King, a professional musician and artist until a diagnosis of parkinons dsease at age 49 forced him into an early retirement., he now uses his music, his art along with the whimsical world he has created in this blog as therapy to ( as he puts it ) outsmart his brain and make the daily battles with parkinson’s a little bit easier, to give him that all important reason to get up on the morning, to make his life worth living. Andy has learned how to say NO to gving up \ NO to depression and apathy \ NO to following willingly the road of decline that stretches before him. he learned that to say no to all of these things all one has to do is say yes. Andy has learned to just say YES to life/\\
