*Note: The photo was taken by me, though we don’t get much snow in winter, on this day we did. Winter days can have many faces. When the sun shines, reflecting itself on snowy surfaces it sparkles with beauty. Giving us a sense of peace. Than there is the flip side which I address, an inner feeling of sadness (depression?). The weather like people has its mood swings. The music and video are well suited. I hope you watch it through to the end. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.

*Note: Today’s post is in regards to bipolar disorder. Globally, 46 million people around the world have bipolar disorder. (Our World in Data, 2018) There are various types of bipolar disorders. I’ve posted a very informative link below with quite interesting statistics and treatment. Mental health is a growing problem, with defunding of various programs in the US it will not improve. As always a song about the issue in this post.

Triggers*

*Note: many suffer from anxiety, brought on by a number of different reasons. Some suffer extreme attacks needing medication, others mild that can be brought under control with breathing exercises. Meditative music also helps to calm a person during an attack. Neither form is pleasant to go through.

Face of The World*

life today

can pull

you down

to the ground.

walking through

empty streets,

as fragmented

memories

circle like

splintered light.

once enlighten,

now

pain

etched

shallow faces.

visions lost

hiding

behind

hollow eyes,

thoughts of

tomorrow lay in

shadowed

darkness

so oblique.

*Note: melancholic thoughts are more prevalent this year than in the past. Isolation can do that, call, FaceTime or zoom those dear to you. Know that you are never truly alone have faith let your spirits be lifted. πŸ™‚ Sending a virtual hug around the world.

Silence (tanka)*

emotional blues~

cries within wanting release~

struggles inside self~

battles daily twofold war~

harmony a fleeting thing

lg/14052020

*Note: Many fight depression, anxiety and bipolar conditions just to name a few on a daily bases. Mental health is a major issue for many on a good day, however with the Covid-19 quarantine it is even harder for some to deal with it. Even those without issues are finding it difficult to be isolated. If you know someone who might be struggling reach out, you don’t need to give advise, just let them know they aren’t alone. This video connected for me with my poem. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’™ Take care, be safe.
