Replacing the much lamented 'On My Mind' profile option, this thread is for musings, jottings, whimsies, preoccupations and the rest of the thesaurus for anyone to jot down anything they please.


I can't remember what the maximum character count was before, can anyone else? But anyway it wasn't very many so let's keep to that.

Lost another good one - one of my male cousins, from Parkinson's aged 71 . I didn't know he had it. He was a nice man, a good father, husband. and grandfather. One of his granddaughters wrote of him "you taught me to sit still and gently with the simple things and, above all, to love comfortably." He will be greatly missed by his family.

Fall is here with a vengeance. It is raining and blowing and 4C (39F) and a dark cloudy day. I think I want to stay in bed with a ☕ and 📚 but I'll just wait till the house warms up then start my morning routine. I'm not ready for this!

I am so very sad... I am on a train, going back home. We have a delay of 90 minutes... Someone committed suicide... Someone you I heard a policeman say. I can't help thinking about this person and her/his family.
I am fighting to hold my tears back.

Glad: That has to be such a relief for you. Good to hear that the swelling and fluid are diminished.

It feels like the swelling and fluid retention in my chest and under my arms is finally starting to go down. It is such an uncomfortable feeling to have this extra fluid, just stuck, not going anywhere. Seven weeks since surgery it is about time.

Must wear my NYPD shirt tomorrow.

Even the strongest person can be watching too much 9/11 news and come away devastated and depressed.

Be careful, be stronger than that, turn off the T.V. after an hour.

Yes NeedHelp is taking some time off from the Forum. She told me she checks her messages occasionally. I was away for a few days otherwise I would have responded earlier. Need we hope and pray you are ok.

Heartbreaking story of high school football team; many members killed in a tragic bus crash 50 years ago tomorrow.

I remember EB telling us that but with Covid explosion and Ida in her area, so many things could have happened.

Wishing you and yours well NHWM if you are reading.😊😊

I understand if NWWM wanted to stay away for a while, I am just afraid she might have real problems because of the hurricane or with her daughter.
Let's hope she is just taking some time for herself and that her and all her family are fine !

Yes I had missed NHWM. But I get it. Having to deal with Hurricane Ida must be so very awful (& maybe bring back trauma too). I hope she is well 🤗

Sometimes we need to have a look around & pull back from the things not helping us, or not helping is as they once were. It's OK to move forward. I feel I am moving turtle speed at present - but at least not backwards 🐢🐢🐢

Doing more of what soothes & supports us is good.

Anche and Glad: Someone said NeedHelpWithMom was taking a break from the forum, I believe for "some personal things." I think it was Earlybird who said that, right Early?

Me too. Course now she has the after affects of hurricane Ida. NO is still a mess.

CWillie, I miss the Sears catalog and Penney’s. Easy to order, easy to do return. I loved looking at everything. Better than sitting at a computer.

Went for surgery follow up. Have to go on 9/15 for my fifth surgery. Need a replacement pin and some screws to further stabilize my ankle. Will be at least 8 weeks before I can be weight bearing. Tired of using a scooter for everything.
