the mind of a poet, storyteller, the music she loves, tales she tells, the places she goes, sometimes more, often less.

my very straight spine and drugs
I went in for x-rays yesterday. The x-ray showed my spinal chord, in my neck, is perfectly straight. I was impressed until I learned it was supposed to have a curve to it. I was advised to lose some weight, namely, weight I carry in front. We will see. Insurance has denied me before for this particular surgery. The doc gave me muscle relaxers to ease the tension in my shoulders. I tried one last night and don't think I have had such a great night's sleep in a long time. My dreams were great. I woke up before the alarm, wide-awake, refreshed and happy. What a new feeling in the morning! Now to achieve that naturally. . .
Getting back to journaling is my goal for this month. I haven't documented my life enough the last 7 months. And, generally, my poems come out of my journals.
Also, he has grown on me and I think Pau Gasol is dreamy.
