    THE POWER OF THE DENTIST Pt 2


    while the luvvies on the red carpet were smilin' and slappin' comedians over lame, insulting jokes I was lying back with Dr Jakob back inside my mouth. Back molar. Gawd. It just wouldn't budge . Had to cut in two. Took 45 odd minutes. He had to give me 6 or 7 anaesthetic needles. I was exhausted. Relieved the damn thing was out. Dentistry. Still using pliers and elbow grease. Jesus, Joseph and Mary.

    On the way home. Could barely put one foot in front of the other. Had taken codeine the night before. Then I thought of Jane Campion who inspired me to go on. She must have faced so many obstacles to get where she is. Persuade, convince, cajole her way to create films.

    And then she won Best Director. And the smile came back. A tentative smile, still a bit sore from the suturing. But a smile regardless.

      Saturday - spent the day with about 15 other couples, and a few singles, at an MS retreat day. At a local hospital. Primarily comprised of the individual with MS and their caregiver (akin to my wife and me). General discussion, vent your frustrations, massage option, acupuncture option, meditation, cooking class, painting class, and just talking with others/friends. A wonderful 6.5 hours.

      The courage of the individuals with MS always makes me smile. Also reminds me of how trivial all of my own complaining is. And the love and commitment of their friends, partners, spouses, caregivers, always renews my faith in people.

      I am very much hardened, and jaded, and angry, at most times when discussing all things health and health industry. The family (s) sponsoring these events, the docs, the volunteers, bring me back to earth.

          Nothing.
          Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
          Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.

            I would totally read that book. For a few glorious years back in the 70's. We had lots of young blokes with panel vans who put Floyd and YES covers spray painted on the sides. And with the sticker on the back doors. "If the van's rockin', don't bother knockin'!"

                Republican propaganda is quite uplifting if you don’t think too hard about it.

                  Haha. I hear you! But ( for me ), its so much better than the alternatives. It’s in my wheelhouse, but admit there are some extremes for sure.

                  Gotta take any news channel with a bit of a grain of salt....

                    Thinking about tonight is making me smile, and it's making me a bit nervous at the same time.

                      Are you goin' to a prom? You'll be OK. Just breathe, straighten your tie and smile at her parents when you go and pick her up. 😘

                          Not quite. She's coming over to hang out and meet my cat. We are both cat people but this is the first time she's been to my apartment.

                              Cool. Hope it goes well. If that's not too creepy to say?
