hello, hippimom, thanks so much for post;love to get your posts;the music, cool...i heard a new singer named adrienne young;same wonderful stuff;not the same, but the marvelous styling..very folk;don't know where she & her band are from;if you haven't heard her, listen...you will;i'm looking forward to hearing amy martin, never have. i saw kris kristofferson sing his newest song on jay leno & conan o'brien...it's so beautiful, poingnant withour self-pity;it's about
getting older & it's called ,i think. "Ain't we come a long way down" 'ain't we come a long way down ...this old road";it's a celebration of experiences & survival;i love it.i will buy his cd just for that, tho i love him anyway;he was so flattered yrs. ago when lightfoot sang "Me & bobby mcgee " sp? i wouldn't tell kristofferson, but i prefer gordon's version ;they're different, tho;kristofferson is so good..'sunday morning coming down', & on & on.i miss johnny cash & june;mother maybell was a fovorite of mine... i am so glad
to hear that yoursonprobably doesn't have crohns. could it be what i had as a small kid;a type of rheumatoid arthritis;something like that;he may outgrow it...very glad ,tho he's being treated;i can only imagine how you worry about
him. that is one thing i miss, not having children...but pid so eary...no chance & with active crohns until after age 30;& not able to nourish a fetus , couldn't properly nourish myself...by the time i could, i had cfs & menopause anyway, not that the pause mattered the mess my tubes are...i also have & heve had pmdd since 12, puberty..like the pms from hell that gives you one level wk a month;my mom still hastrouble, as do i...sorry, i'll stop bi...... i know so many of you all feel & hurt worse.i really like you, hip, you are so HIP, so hep. dates me for sure..don't care;i, too, as have you, "come a long way down...this old road";with many miles to go, god willing.sleep well, friend..big ol shaggy rugs of hugs;big trucks of hugs, too...
hang in xxooxo nite, friend tc
i believe we are all connected;everything is connected on an atomic and subatomic level, so how can we be separate;how can one thing not affect another? another reason to be kind to each other...and to think before we speak. and to try to love one another or at least give up hatred for individuals. and i don't mean we should turn into Pollyanna .no way...we musk feel and acknowledge all our feelings;it's how we handle them. that is the hardest part for me, i:ve discovered. i don't like injustice & i don't stay quiet about it. sometimes i'm disliked for that. i can live with it...lots of practice.I was marching in the streets before a lot of you were born, so i think that tells you a lot. i'm not brave. but i care.and i try to help. so do things like YOU do them;with the docs help
bob dylan said, "I aint gonna work on maggies farm no more you all try to do the same;hold on to all the dignity you can& do as many things your own way as you can;of course swe have to deal with docs & so on, but we need to keep ourselves.
