Hullo Blog! I haven't been here for a while. Over 40 years ago I had a thyroidectomy - supposedly so I wouldn't have to take pills for the rest of my life. But guess what? - It didn't go quite right so I've had to take pills for the rest of my life. And 40 years with relatively trouble free health apart from the constant balancing act to keep levels right, is probably not a bad record. But in May I struck a bit of a hiccup. Calcium levels suddenly sky-rocketed and I ended up in hospital with kidney failure.

My inclinations had become dis-inclinations - big time. I did nothing for weeks but drink, drink, drink (3 litres of fluid a day!) and read books. I could barely be bothered to sit at the computer long enough to check my emails. The worst of it was the total lack of desire to write and I began to worry that the mojo was gone for good.

So I am very glad to tell you, Blog, that I am back. It has been a bit of a travail but I am finally writing again and averaging about 1200 words a day. More would be good but I'm very happy with that. So much better than a big fat zero!

I guess it was only a matter of time before Crystal Dancer began calling to me. At the end of the Atlantean past life in 'Through All Eternity' (available on Amazon B009MFQUBC) a child is the only survivor because he was miraculously transported through time and space to a lifetime 6000 years in the future - to the time of the biblical Great Flood. Crystal Dancer is Ugo's story (along with his great love, Ereka) as learnt through the dreams and spiritual experiences of their reincarnated souls, Hugh and Riki, in the 21st century.

Ugo and Ereka's story was written some years ago and it is only now that I am writing the present day component. I am constantly amazed by the effects of the deeply embedded soul memories carried forward from one lifetime to another, how a vow made in a lifetime over 3000 years ago could have such relevance and power in  the NOW.

Then again, I don't know why I am so amazed for I don't believe I am actually writing this story. I'm just the  vehicle by way of which it isbrought into physical being. And I am grateful that it is so.

And thanks, Blog, for hanging about waiting for me. :)

    More than 40 years ago a specialist told me I needed a thyroidectomy and I looked at him and said in loud capitals...NEVER!!!

    He put me on radioactive iodine tabs, told me I'd sign my death warrant if I touched alcohol, and never warned of possible side effects...of which there were some nasties.
    Was I better off?
    I still have my thyroid, no long term effects so I guess I am better off. My little bit of nursing training came in handy as I knew a person could turn into Dr Jekyll or Mr Hyde without that endocrine gland. After reading this I'm very glad that for about the only time in my life I was assertive!

  2. Shirl!
    40 years ago I was totally ignorant of things medical and like my mother, believed doctors knew EVERYTHING that was best for me. Fortunately I now understand that my body and its health are my responsibility. I have become my doctor'd worst nightmare and question EVERYTHING! Thank goodness we learn as we live and assertiveness is one thing I like to think I have acquired - at least where I need it. :)
