glangley Posted January 19, 2009 Report Share Posted January 19, 2009 Well, I still haven't been able to get my water flowing yet. I think my well pump maybe shot or their is something wrong with the power coming in to the box out there. I will have to try to work on it more tomorrow. It's just so darn hard, frustrating and painful to get out there and try to do. Just from the little I did in the last two days helping my wife is got my pain level through the roof. So much so that medication does nothing to keep it at bay. I am confident that the dreams I have tonight will be some doosie's. Usually when it gets this bad, if I get any sleep at all the pain will find it's way into my sleep as well. Just to name a few, I have had dreams of being crushed underneath cars, having surgery while awake and unable to speak to tell them to stop because I could feel it all, and even dreampt of being eaten alive by hungry lions, each time I wake up and find that the part of my body in the dream is throbbing like crazy. It is hard to sleep when it gets this bad, but I wanted to share something with you all that helps take my mind off of it, even if only briefly, whcih allows me to get to sleep. I probably have a few hundred marbles in my meager collection. I'll go grab a box of my favorite marbles, Jabo's of course , and set it beside my bed on my dresser. After marveling at them again and again, I will pick one to hold, and I rub it with my thumb and forefinger. It's something about the smooth glass, the texture and knowing the beauty I have in my hand. I let my mind imagine all the people that helped make it, that maybe held it before me and what they thought of it's wonder. I think of future marbles that have yet to be created but are waiting in cullet, and in the imagination of those like Dave M, and all those wonderful people out there who take part in the creating. The many artist's out there creating them one by one, with sweat, fire and love of glass wonders. All the time rubbing the marble with my thumb and forefinger. Maybe it's an obsessive compulsive disorder, but it helps me take my mind elsewhere. Since im still up after midnight and the pain level is intense, I was heading over to my little marble curio cabinet to snag a box before retreating to bed. I thought i'd pop in here just to say hi and tell you all how wonderful it is to know you here. I hope you all have a very blessed day tomorrow and God honors and keeps you all the days of your lives. Your friend in Michigan, Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
