    Granted, it's been over 25 years since I moved and it can be a very stressful experience depending on circumstances, but it can also be freeing and nostalgic...going through your stuff, the memories, clearing out the waste, etc.  Starting anew.

    My mind has been a bit too full lately.  I'd rather that than it be empty, but jeesh.

    True. I got a lot done today. It feels great to downsize and get rid of a bunch of stuff that you don't need anymore. It's always fun looking at old photo albums and finding things you forgot you had. I've felt like a 90 year old grandmother trying to give all her stuff away lately lol.

    Most things about moving sucks, but I agree with Hedo - it can be freeing.

    And the last time I moved I rediscovered a lot of wonderful books as I unpacked them and put them on the new shelves, so there's that. 
    my small self... like a book amongst the many on a shelf

    IT has been Rocked Hedo!!  :rock_on: ^Cool song! And yeah...it's ok to let "baby" slip every once in a while.. ;)

    Being in nature this week grounded and put me in such a phenomenal mindspace.  Really hoping to continue this feeling when the bottom of reality drops out Monday morning.

    I'm travelling to Glasgow for a bit of a Pearl Jam meet up on Saturday and I'm very nervous about it. There are a couple of people I'm looking forward to meeting but more that I'm desperate to avoid! Kind of regretting deciding to go but having booked and paid for it all I'm not going to back out now

    So loving on Triumph, Senor Insult Comic Dog, right now.  Like laughing as I would at Carlin or any of his ilk.

    Relax and have a good time, to be honest I would be a little nervous as well it's nothing wrong with that. You will probably meet a bunch of cool and great people, have fun!

    I have nothing on my mind by choice (it's all pushed behind the gate that lets me be).  That should hold for a bit.

    So happy I came into this thread. In just the two pages I read I have seen names i have known since i joined 4 1/2 years ago. I haven't been on much, but that is true of all sites and places since my diagnosis. When I do come here, it's so nice to see how people are - or just to see a known avatar of a person I have cyber affection for.

    So happy for you brianlux - that must be such an accomplished feeling!!

    Congratulations northerndragon - being an Aunt is a wonderful thing. 

    jnimhaoileion - I would be in a panic in the same situation. Sounds like a great idea, then when the time comes to do so you think 'what the hell?'. I admire you for stepping out of your comfort zone to meet people that you know only through this type of communication. In other places of the internet I have made some life long friends. I also have met people that I realized that I was just not clicking with. You can always meet them and if it feels weird - go your own way. Good luck!!!!

    I see you hedonist and PJ_Soul and Pap (one of my first 'friends' in the rate the song thread!!! Hope you are well!) and Annafalk  and smallest ocean and cuddly Hobbes. You all put a smile on my face. Especially the names i forgot to include.

    Thanks lolo - nice to see you. 

    'and though i may disappear from out of  view, I will never say good bye' . I know that it's wrong but that's how I sing it when I don't have throw your arms around me playing.  And it pops into my mind about my social media and personal connections. I just can't get on sometimes, but the days that I do it makes me feel good. 

    I struggle with my situation and illness but I am a survivor and if not for the fear that I may never really have a relationship with my son again, I could pull out of this easier. I'm doing alright though. I'm alive, I'm communicating today, I'm taking care of mom and I may leave the house today. So I can't complain. I hope you are doing okay.
