... did you just quote Rufus Wainwright.

I don't mind diminishing what people say if I feel they are out of balance or not being reflected adequately:

When I first saw you, I felt lust well up within me. When I first heard you and saw you whole (as whole as I am able to perceive with my eyes), I felt my heart in my mouth. I realized "de-vine" or sensed it... and wanted to meet you. When I met you, I was briefly overwhelmed and turned myself off because I didn't know what I was feeling as you touched me beautifully. Afterwards, I looked at you a lot, smiled at you when it seemed I had your attention. This is to say: Some people just like you -- whomever and whatever that is.

I fear the green phlegm means you have an infection. Take the knowledge and do what you need, but I am betting on an upper resp. infection at least.

Don't you just love the dreams that accompany fevers? I haven't had a serious fever since like 1998 and I had wonderful dreams... my fault for being into requiems, really. My friend, Jennie, came over and broke it.

I am wishing you well and glad to've met you -- whatever that means.

... all things having been done...

Yes, of course i was quoting Rufus

but as a context
not a message.

and yeah
i know i have an infection
i'm doing my best to take care of myself

i don't see illness as a direct-line/barrier thing

more like a land to navigate
more like the dream scape.

i just want to sleep for days and days and days.

i'm glad you're here on LJ as well!

how nice
i added you as a friend

though i am on the RFD computer right now
which has very slow internet
so i haven't gone to see your flickr yet

... don't worry too much about the Vasshon Naraya
it's been going for many years
and will probably go for more...

i've never been to that one
but it is a magical island..


thanks for being there
it was great to have you a part of my welcome-back to that space

and now i lay me down to sleep...

Re: ... all things having been done...

Oh, the welcoming I would have done if I was not having the experience I was having! It was my first Gathering, you know.

i don't see illness as a direct-line/barrier thing

more like a land to navigate
more like the dream scape.

i just want to sleep for days and days and days.

Before I properly respond to this which really... captures me, what do you mean by direct-line?

I dunno. I believe in drugs when I need them.

I am a healer, hon. It's what I do. When I can do. When something can work through me. Blah.

Re: ... all things having been done...

you're a healer?

(i don't know you well enough to make presumptions)

healer of yourself
or healer of others

what and how?

i dunno.
i believe in help if i need it
but i rarely believe in drugs.

i SOMETIMES believe in plants
mostly plants
sometimes stones
sometimes lovers

but mostly

i'm a healer at healing myself
and through Good Health
i spread that through personal contact

no so much a Healer
a Good Example
(a suggestion that other people may live, in their way, as such)

re: disease as a straight line:

i don't really believe in things like "manic depressive" "diabetes" "AIDS" "ADD" "Cancer" even...
these names give a pre-set of experiences most people are required to have

which is bullshit.

so even "sinus infection" or "upper respiratory infection"
is not a clear line around me
or in me

i see it more as i described it in the post i posted Before this one
about How i'm functioning with my energy off base
what my dynamics are with myself
and others
emotionally, energetically, and physically.

it's a personal thing
just as i'm not happy be called "white" or "male" or "gay"
i don't like to have some idea of sickness put on top of me i have to deal with
as well as my energetic imbalances!

i was a very sickly child
and doctors never helped me
so i generally give them a big hearty middle-finger.
