With all the rain there comes the floods and with all the pain there comes the drugs.

I've just had my second tab. Paracetemol that is. I don't remember the last time I had one of these. Probably never. I did have some aspirin once as a kid but nothing since them. So although it is possible to manage the pain, I've decided to experiment with some drugs, following the directions of course.. I don't really feel too much different but the pain has eased a little, I think. Though it might be getting better on it's own.

What what I thinking about? The bush fireman who set the fires and then responded to them, sirens blaring, all to impress a girl. Things got out of control and 400 homes threatened and 4 or 40 homes lost. There were so many fours going around I got confused and can't remember. Maybe Firebug or something cleverer ?? When I'm thinking clear maybe. He was a captain in the rural fire brigade. Make it so though she is impressed with him,her house is burnt down and she doesn't find out till later he was responsible. Maybe start in middle of date and then rush off to fire.

What else? - Plus the new interest in ballroom dancing again. Becoming very popular again. Roadrage, which is always popular and the PKK I think they were - The Kurdish Liberation army. A small force of 10,000 fighters from Iraq, Turkey, Iran who live in the mounatins at the top of Iraq in a region surrounded by Syria, Iran and Turkey, all of which apparently want them dead. Half the fighters are women. The women and men dress alike and their is equality between the genders. They were playing volleyball but these teens and young men and women of Kurdish descent could face death at any time. An 18 yr old girl from Iran says she found equality here and pledges her allegiance and life to the cause.

I was playing volleyball at her age, on a beach with friends. That's about where the similarity of our experiences end.

Hmm. I think the paracetemol/potassium sorbate seem to make the pain more distant and manageable rather than completely alleviate it.

Like the grasses showing tender faces to each other, thus should we do, for this was the wish of the Grandfathers of the World.

thanks p&p
Thanks p&p. Like a rail-jumping schizophrenic steamtrain with a random-thought generator for a driver, that's my bloggies. I have been putting them on Live Journal but I think I got confused during the days of suffering and teeming rain and reverted back to posting here by accident. I'm only not posting here because I didn't know how they were here for space and it has nothing to do with the fact that most are crappy.;) I remember the Sinkhole and the flying coach and the storyteller woman. Definitely the most atmospheric storytelling poetry I have read. That's yours I mean. Look forward to seeing more.
cheers smithy
