To be seen
To be heard
For emotions to be conferred
To feel like you aren’t alone
Navigating the unknown
Finding words of another
An empowering way to discover
A circle of support and care
Challenges become lighter to bear
Energy left for healing
Instead of despair
A home for enlightening infinite possibility
I have been somewhat absent the last few weeks. Missing the labyrinth of golden words and responses BUT accepting that life has and will pull my attention elsewhere from time to time.
Boj-stracted with school holidays and dusting off the allergy book series I have…
Mum sends funny jokes
When life gets too serious
Laughter is the best
If my mum senses life is getting too serious for anyone — she will send the funnies in to try and snap them out of it.
Inappropriate at times, but always sent with the intention of lightheartedness and fun.
I can hear her chuckling as she sends the humour on.
Mum has the loudest laugh. Ever.
Her neighbours have even complained about it. Yep — What the?! Who complains someone is too happy?!
She sent this one today after she read my latest allergy stuff.
As I went to reply to him along the lines of – wow, so there could be a thread of connection to vaccines… there was a reply from him – An admission maybe?
Now I have a few hunches about environmental impacts and potential root causes of allergies and anaphylaxis.
As mentioned before, none of them solid proof—no singular answers.
All just theories.
Integral to a bigger picture that remains, for the most part – unknown.
Was happy to see one of them being put forward for further research and perhaps a possible preventive treatment.
The intensive vaccine schedule in…
I was barefoot and wallet-less the day I found out my daughter, Billie, had an anaphylactic reaction to peanuts. Eggs and most tree nuts were added to the “prone to anaphylactic reaction” list in the coming months.
Was expecting to do a quick pick up from my parent's house, head home and catch the last online work meeting for the day.
Well — as we know, plans can change — in an instant.
When I arrived, I took one look at Billie and knew she needed help.
Her face was swelling to a point it was unrecognisable.
She was pulling…
A single sheet of paper
250 words gifted from a creator
Sparkled with magic by an illustrator
Stories shared from across the Earth
Seeds of knowledge and insights birth
Shining a light on every child’s worth
All deserve a chance to learn and read
More than a want, it’s a basic need
Limitless potential to be freed
When world wisdom is spoken
Imagination past survival awoken
Generational cycles broken
Walls that words can break
A single sheet of paper is all it takes
A better world is what it creates
About a year ago, Sanjukt Saha reached out to me…
Australia had allergies and anaphylaxis in the spotlight this week.
But why is death the imminent impetus for change?
Not just talking allergies here.
What has become of my beloved tequila?
That suddenly tastes like a wet blue heeler
With soggy socks
After my body detox
Red red wine
You once tasted oh so divine
Fragrances of decomposing fruit
Hints of muddy boot —
My brain can no longer compute
Beer. My reliable draft beer
I actually shed a tear
Gone are the days
of your amber gaze
A single fin or two
Now the most I can do
Even the gin has gone in the bin
Don’t get me started on whiskey
Scents of ashtray
Who is holding the torch?
Uncle spinning tyres in his Porsche
Darling poster wife
Twisting an unexpected knife
Lives to rearrange
Which way will he choose to go?
Oh, how we would love to know!
Ultimately, his choice to make
Affecting multiple lines of fate
Perhaps with some wise advice
Bad guys can turn nice-r
