Cleaning Up, Packing Up: My Drama, My Trauma

I can sit again! At least for an hour or two, so my priority now is cleaning up the messes my blogs have become. I'm almost done updating my Blog List, so if I'm following you, and you don't see your blog, you may still be in the the Links, but I think I've gotten almost everyone. Have to check and double-check. Don't be shy.
The pain blog is more than an embarrassment to me. I've seen clearly now what the mission of the blog will be. In addition, I've got about 100 links to retest. I've been collecting those for over a year in a to do list, which I might try to post the list, rather than re-typing them one by one.
At the same time, I'm packing. Where I am going, I'm still not sure. It could be around the corner, or Southern California. I have to admit I'm an East Coast kinda gal, although the North West is beautiful.
The next posting will be one of the drafts for Compassion. I Have 5, but I'm first going with the short story behind Kuan Yin. I think her story is an example of how giving compassion makes it grow inside you: if you squeeze water in your hands, you will lose it, and that's true with compassion as well. In a mechanical paradigm, it would the perpetual motion machine, one that generates more energy than it uses.
Also, seeking advice on a few matters, so don't be surprised to hear from me for your opinions, as I value them all.

Good luck with everything, Scriba. How long has it been since you could sit?

Let us know when and where you go. I know about the blog messes and problems. I have a bunker crop of my own.

You are SO SWEET to put my Iris image on your page. THANK YOU!!!

You are welcome. I love that...but I had to move it down, even though it's still on this blog, just down further. Put it in ladysinred, also. I had a clear vision for the pain blog, but I can't read my writing, and the style has to go. And Andrew (he's on all my blogs, good friend, on BC) sketched this beautiful flower, so I wanted to put it up, but it's yellow, so I'm going to find a more prominent place.
As for places, I may have one here in a week or so. I really dislike SoCal.
I've gotten better, so I can sgtart my own life very soon, along with physical therapists, people bathing and dressing...yuck. But I'll have 3 desks and that's all I need. Take care, Sweet tides, Linda

"It was in Spain that [my generation] learned that one can be right and yet be beaten, that force can vanquish spirit, that there are times when courage is not its own recompense. It is this, doubtless, which explains why so many, the world over, feel the Spanish drama as a personal traged

Close Encounters of the Blog Kind: Alternate Methods of Commenting

There are a few ways to leave comments, depending on your needs. First, you can click under the post and embed the comment.
I will go in and paste it under the post, so no one has to click and wait for the window or page to come up.
Secondly, C-Box is here precisely to make it easier to comment, converse with each other, make references to your posts, and so on. I value your participation in this expedition. Without you, I risk becoming solipsistic, like a goldfish in a bowl thinking that is the entire world because it's the only reality I would acknowledge. I think you can see by the nature of my interests, that is just not me.
Thirdly, I encourage you to use the Review Posting area. Comments should be about the site itself, but can also serve to talk about content. It's up to you.
Finally, you can leave comments on Friend Connect. A problem with F.C. is it was posting at the top of the blog, so to leave was more difficult. You couldn't see 'next blog,' etc. I tried changing the code but no success. So I'm reloading it in the hopes that won't happen. I'm sorry that I lost all the messages there.
You also have the option of contacting me through email or my YouTube channels. Links for that are all over the blog. I am setting up a companion blog with music players from You Tube. Additionally, I'm starting another blog, "The Pain Game," a log of what's happening to me (and a lot of other people.) Even though there is recent legislation that is very promising, the past 20 years have been a nightmare to doctors and patients alike, re: law enforcement harassment. In 4 years, 5000 doctors lost their licenses. I don't want to speculate how many patients died because of it. And this isn't the place for this.
FINALLY, PLEASE BECOME A FRIEND. I'm making friends at other sites like BlogCatalog and Bloggers Unite, and two friend from there are here. But especially my closest friends, show me you've been here! And critique this thing, and be brutal.
