Leaving the Anger Behind or Life is Strange

 Hello, dear people of the blogoverse. How are you doing?

I hope life is treating you well and if not, know, that my thoughts and prayers are with you. I am sure today’s blast from the past should have come before this post.  However, I used to write several blogs (oh stop, I am doing it again, don’t I? Ah… never mind 😉) and maybe I just mentioned Terry Pratchett on this one later. Who knows.

It’s funny though because I am again dealing with anger in my life. The whole non-violence thing at Extinction Rebellion brought it all up and these “RIP Terry Pratchett” posts appeared:

March 2015

Not sure if I want to write a lot today. After writing some poems, thinking about Zara, sorting some money trouble and doing a little gardening I sat down for tea with my family and my world shattered a little.

Sir Terry Pratchett author of the Discworld novels, at last, has taken Deaths arm and left this world.

Of course, I knew he suffered from a rare early-onset Alzheimer’s disease but I was not aware that it was that far ahead.

His novels have entertained me numerous times. His writing has inspired me. His humour made me think.

He campaigned tirelessly for more research into Alzheimer’s as well as a change of law about assisted suicide.

And now he is gone. May he rest in peace.

This time
had no chance
I suspect.
Maybe He patted
your cat
He appreciated
you being on time.
I imagine
you and Him
I hope
you could leave
your anger


another one
to write…

I like this poem a lot. It’s one of those occasions when I managed to create something nice out of something sad. I remember vividly how Neil Gaiman’s articles about Terry Pratchett’s anger made me long to be able to do the same.
Four years onwards and I still feel I am going in circles but then I got this message from the angels:

Peace and well-being will now reign and allow you to reach into a deeper part of your being to achieve overall equilibrium.

Life is strange, isn’t it?

That’s it for today but if you want to explore some other blogs or authors check out these wonderful people:

Carol Anne at Therapybits  where she explains how life is when you have more than one person in your body.

Jill at Filosofa’s Word who is snarky and funny and caring.

And for my German-speaking readers:

IlseLuise who shares wonderful poetry.

    1. Hi Irene, am thinking of you every day and sending positive vibes. Yes, this is mine. Had to give up my domain because I gave up my job and have no other means of income yet. Even though rage and anger are on my mind I do not feel unbalanced. It’s now more a process of using this energy for something positive.

      Or accepting that what I do is what I am meant to do and going for it. Hope you and your family are well 😚🙋‍♀️🐝

      1. Thank you for your kind vibes, Bee.
        I will visit your new blog too.
        Maybe you could do something online with writing to earn some extra, if you have the abundance for this, which it demands, I know.
        Nice to hear, that you are not unbalanced, this is so positive.
        I’m better and try little by little to get back into our kind blogging universe. For now by reading daily…

      2. You are very welcome. It is so nice to read you again. Well, whatever I try my fears of not being good enough stand in the way. I assume this is the time to heal and whatever is meant for me will arrive in time 😊. I hope you could also enjoy your time out. Recovering does have its advantages. How is the weather in your neck of the woods? And where are you? Still in Spain?

      3. You are right, time helps to heal, even if we can do much ourselves too.
        I’m still in Spain, now more south and in the middle of a heatwave, where we have around 38 C. or more these days. Terrible warm.
