How to stop old habits returning, with the boredom of not being allowed outside?
Oh, it's nice weather here. I too have been frustrated at the amount of people out but then I am part of the problem going to the popular spots so today I went for a ride on back roads and hardly saw anyone.
I thought I would reply to my own thread. I'm really into my book. I am not sure of th title yet, maybe "other lives", because I seem to have gone through life meeting unusual people and taking in their lives, or maybe I will call it "autistic boy", because I have been the oldest going Peter Pan ever, have I grown up yet?....I am not sure, maybe still a boy inside an old man's body! I have written quite a lot. I have done various passages already so I am able to insert these into the main body of the text. I am going to add into it the poems I wrote and some photos I have found over the years that add to the flavour of the passing years. Strange how one looks back at the muddling ineptitude of those who seek political power in order to foist on us their mad and bad ideas. Usually we all end up paying more taxes, or having to host more foreigners who work harder than us wise islanders, in order to earn the replacement capital. So the politicians wised up to the original island race and place ever greater burdens on us, moving state supported schemes onto our private purses. My parents bought their first house for £300 during the war, that is to say my mother bought it, with my father's saved army pay. I visited it recently and if placed on the market it would fetch £2mn!! How careful we must be to make sure we are not left behind, as inflation is going to be the only way out of the pandemic debt.How to stop old habits returning, with the boredom of not being allowed outside?
Yes, the affinities (even 'kinship'? ) between ourselves and our environment are a lot deeper than we mostly realise....I have learned that we are all affected by the environment’s wellbeing in one way or another and when external things are cared for and cared about that has a positive affect on our internal state too.
I remember going through an enormous phase of cross stitch when I had gone through a very traumatic point in my life, the hyper focussing was incredibly therapeutic. Glad you are enjoying the embroideryGuess what I am doing? Embroidery... I would never have believed it, but here I am. It is absorbing and calming. It is a little penguin or a bear, a lovely furry little something with a flower in its hand. Lovely lol.
