New blog post! “Back 2 tha Future/Final Reflections” Pt. 1 Traveling may as well be a time warp because Mexico feels a world away from 8 days ago. I finally see the full picture- all the pieces & posts which have concluded to now. The past 7 marvelous confounding months were influenced by the last couple of intense weeks & months in Texas. An epicene road trip was underscored by a legitimate rage brewing under the surface of this choppy swooped hair & clairvoyant waters. (Full post Joshovaswitness.com)
In the throes of writing the most difficult chapters of my book- I coincidentally uprooted my life, quit my job, cashed out my savings, and went off my medications because I no longer had insurance. I didn’t realize I was acting manic, that my body & mind were going through withdrawals from ADHD & anti-anxiety medications until a breakdown at Mount St. Helens, Oregon. If there's any place to have a mental meltdown, America's most recently active volcano was a touch too much on this Jewish nose. 😆💆🏻♂️ Like that 1980 eruption, a swirling configuration led to a personal unraveling. Secondary trauma from my career in social work, the loss of my beloved dog, some of my closer friends, the death of two friends, the political nightmare of 🇺🇸, & a flurry of immediate attention days after starting my blog, added their respective weights that broke me. # babygotcamelback
This book that had been being bursting in my heart for 20 years & onto paper for ten, was finally ready to be shared. It seemed that people wanted to hear it.
I set a goal to self-publish by 2018’s end. I jumped the gun & published before my book was ready. In process I lost focus of the new life I was building for myself.
Like many I was also so fucking mad at 🇺🇸 & in no hurry to return home. Now I’ve gone from full to concentric circles. Loops around mountains & lassoes. This time I am ready for the last dismount. .
