A Tranquil Thought

The scripture reading today in my in-box was perfect!  Just the scene that a body wracked with pain and a brain thick with Fibro Fog needed…

It is a reading from Isaiah 11:6-9:

The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.

And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.”

The peaceful scene described instantly calmed my mind…strengthened my resolve for the day.

The amplified symptoms I am experiencing today are truly temporary. The symptoms will settle back to “normal”.

For now…I can focus my mind’s eye on this tranquil setting…all in harmony with God’s plan…all free from pain…

On Fibro Brain

My eye sees the magnificent animal.

My brain stalls…

What is it called?

For what seems to be an eternity,

I am searching for the word.

Finally…

“Look at the buck!”

Yes…

It is a mule deer buck.

Focus

Like a winding dirt road

Winding through mountainous terrain

The beauty of the trees

The chirping of the birds

Butterflies flying overhead

The sound of bees

As they move from flower to flower…

The shadows are slowly giving way

The brilliant blue sky

With only a hint of a slight breeze

The brilliant purple of the thistles

Clash with the brown dry grass…

So many colors

Overwhelming all senses

While the quiet sounds

Can barely be heard above

The ringing of my ears…

The reason that I am here?

The brain fog has hidden

The initial focus is gone

Given way instead

To the beauty that surrounds…

SdeSoto

What? Oh Yeah!

Thoughts are jumbled

Mind is full

Memories past

Images present…

Attempting to track

To remember

To follow through

To get past the thick fog…

Feeling lost

Unable to recall

Questioning how

Where am I…

Unable to explain

The confusion

The internal stress

The frustration…
