"this may or may not be significant."

terror and needles and scans, oh my.

mood: not good

Wow, that is interesting. I hope it goes well. Looks like they do everything they can to make it pleasant. (I remember an MRI for my back where they played the Titanic soundtrack to me through headphones -- the shipwreck section was not soothing!)

lol, i can imagine!

i'm thinking i'll probably bring my copy of Healing Sounds of a Majestic Thunderstorm, Deep Resonant Chimes and Ocean Waves as it's both deeply soothing (hands-down favorite of my many, many relaxation albums) and a lot less likely freak out the clinician than, say, grouper or dark muse. ;-)

That sounds wonderful! Just yesterday I was listening to a rainfall video at Youtube. Ocean waves are also so soothing. There's something about water!

there's a small meditation i found at the end of the summer while thinking about the friend i lost: recognizing that even one sip of water has come to me from every part of the planet and every moment in history; one sip of water has moved through the bodies of every person i've ever known - and that does not and cannot change. we are all of us in the water, all of the time. i understood that's why falling rain has the effect on me it always has: it's the ancestors, tapping on the windows. or soaking the nightstand, if i'm not paying attention to them.

mostly, comforting. sometimes unnerving. but mostly comforting.

What a lovely image! I've been maybe overmuch preoccupied with lost loved ones in the last years. I can slot a few of them into conventional saint roles -- Gerry's totally my patron saint -- but this is nice, in that it doesn't restrict them to a religiosity most of them weren't really into. Thanks for that. I'll remember it!
