You say I am repeating
Something I have said before. I shall say it again.
Shall I say it again?


T.S  Elliot  ” The Four Quartets”



           I always seemed to be able to lock onto   memories of  emotion on others faces and  I don’t why  the feelings of others  is what I locked onto to or why at the moments of my own suffering I was focusing on the suffering of others. It’s a very  deep thing and is profoundly difficult to put into words.

yet I believe that the ability to lock onto a face that shows emotion is a way of  keeping humanity alive within ones self.  It’s about keeping the flame alive and the lights on.


shall I write  this  again?

I will write this again.

again. again. again and again.

In the darkest of places, in your darkest times  

If you want to hang on to your humanity-

( stay human)

  keep the flame alive

the  lights on.

    Hope is te things with feathers that perchese in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.” – Emily Dickinson … 


Many Thank yous to Ms. Jaycee Lee Dugard for her courage and fortitude in speaking in an interview with Diane Sawyer.  I watched some of her interview and  held her words in my heart.

I noticed that she used  the term ” Mind Manipulation”  in place of of the term ” Mind Control”  and how well  she described the physical and psycological grooming that takes  place .

I was placed downstairs in the basement with the door locked and left with newspaper placed on the cement floor  for the Bathroom.  I was forced to consume dog feces,  and at other points  not allowed  to use the bathroom with the door closed etc.

More than anything is how she held on to hope and held on to her coping mechanisms.  I would look for daylight coming from the window. Small things took on a life of their own as   Hope is truly a  thing with feathers.
