Thistledown — Come Undone

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Thistledown — Midsummer Bedlam will return next weekend with  Chapter 25 Reopening the Portal.  

To say I’ve been stressed out is such a gross understatement that it’s laughable.  So this weekend I’m going to try and unplug as much as I can, because I think I’ve come undone.

I mean, come on.  There’s only so much of the stress and disrespect from Mordor that anybody can take.  Would somebody please just throw the stinkin’ Ring into Mount Doom!

I’m crossing my fingers that I will be able to work on editing Atonement in Bloom.  I hope, but it doesn’t look too promising, because I’ve…

… come undone
I wanted truth but all I got was lies
Came the time to realize
and it was too late

She’s come undone
She didn’t know what she was headed for
And when I found what she was headed for
Mama, it was too late
It’s too late
She’s gone too far
She’s lost the sun
She’s come undone…
Too many mountains, and not enough stairs to climb
Too many churches and not enough truth
Too many people and not enough eyes to see
Too many lives to lead and not enough time…

Thistledown will be back next weekend. I hope you will too.

Hugs on the wing!

    • You are so kind, Lavinia. I greatly appreciate all the time you’ve spent here today.
      Tomorrow is Crystal’s check up. It’s been about 8 months since that golf-ball sized cancerous growth was removed. (Happily it was all on the outside) For an 11 year-old with Inflammatory Bowel Disease she seems to be doing well. She snoozed on the electric throw beside me while I spent a few hours editing Atonement in Bloom.
      Hugs to you and Rick, and chin rubs to all the kitties. ❤

  1. My heart goes out to you Teagan. But then I think, “How wonderful to be leading an intense life full of feelings and events and poetry.” There’s something to be said for that rather than drifting through a life to which one feels indifferent, as many people do. So bear with it, all things pass, life is short, what goes up comes down, what goes down comes up…you know that, friend. Best wishes

  3. There’s an awful lot to be said about coming to places where we feel comfortable and what help, Teagan. I wish you well and hope you’ll find yourself back on track in no time at all. I’m gonna miss my weekly dose of Thistledown (even though I’m always late to it), but what’s more important is you and that you do what’s right for you. Take good care of yourself.
    I’ll still be here waiting when you get back.
    Hugs to you.

    • Thanks Hugh. It’s kind of you to stop and leave an encouraging word. I seem to have wasted the past 3 days… I wasn’t able to touch any of the other things I needed to do, and hit repeated roadblocks and dead ends trying to improve my situation. Meanwhile my options are continuously decreasing. Fewer things I’m even physically able to do.
      Have a beautiful Sunday. Hugs on the wing!


  4. I know just how you feel, dear Teagan, notice how much less I’m on here, it’s overwhelming and as a Canadian (eh) I appreciate the awesome Guess Who reference. 🙂
    We’ll be here whenever you want to log back on, sweetie, take your time.
    Mega one ring to rule them all (guess J.R.R. Tolkien did not like marriage lol), too many bad guys hugs xoxoxoxoxox

    • Ha! And i just indulged in a luncheon feast of junk vittles. Now I’m stressed because I did that! LOL.
      I’ve always loved the Guess Who, Donna. Burton Cummings — what a lovely voice.
      I really do appreciate all your support my friend. I know you have your own version of my “dreadful drain” and stress overload. Thanks for flying over to visit, my friend. Hugs on the wing!


  5. Unplug, get out in nature, breathe deep and let go. As I recently learned, the world keeps on turning with or without me and I am much more equipped to keep up with a little disconnect and re-connect! Hugs!

    • You’re so kind, Gerlinde. Thank you. Maybe for a few minutes I can imagine myself into your lovely “Sunny Cove” — it’s cold and dreary here. I might be “undone” but Thistledown is not done yet. I’ll be back with it next weekend. Great big hug right back. 🙂


  6. Sometimes it would be good if we came with a switch off button. And others did too. Take lots of care, chocolate, time with Crystal and whatever else makes you happy (Pinterest boards!) and come back when you’re ready. We’ll be always ready for your magic. Big hugs.

    • Haha. There certainly are people whose off-switch I’d like to find. 😀 Olga you have a perfect way with words. I know you had to have been an amazing psychiatrist.
      I will try my best to remove the “shoulds” and relax. Oh… I haven’t been to Pinterest in such a long time! I used to find that very relaxing. I do hope to find the quiet of mind to edit Bloom though. I haven’t had time to touch it the past couple of weeks. It would give me a sense of accomplish to know I’ve made progress with it.
      Thank you for being so kind. Don’t work too hard preparing for your relocation. Great big hug right back!


    • Thank you Christine — I’m working on it. 🙂 They were my favorite group back in the day, along with Three Dog Night. I just wasn’t like the other girls, “tweens” who were all excited over Donny Osmond, the Jackson Five, or the Partridge Family. LOL.
      Hugs on the wing!

  8. Long ago when I was a little girl My Dad used to tell me about the movie or novel “The Heart is a Lonely Hunter” by Carson McCullers. Being young I did not understand the full impact this story had on my Dad. It made such an impression on him that he would talk about it for hours. Now as a middle aged Woman battling health issues and trying to make it to retirement Yes I now understand how if not why the trials and tribulations of this life are overwhelming. God bless you.

  9. I hope you enjoy the weekend off and get some serious relaxing in. Don’t worry about us, we’ll be here when you come back. I’ll be replaying that song in my head for quite some time, but that’s OK, it’s a fav from wayback.
