AS THE SUN SPITS
I know that the earth got bombarded by a solar flare last Sunday the 1st of August. The electomagnetic pulse seemed to wreak a little havoc with some computer systems. At least the one where I work, the nucleus of which is centered in Minnesota, was down and out for 36 hours. Nobody said why so I am assuming. I am good at assuming. Despite the many times it has done that thing it is noted to do by making an as... out of me, I still carry on the tradition. I'm too old to change now.
Many of my friends have been experiencing unusual times. Aches and pains, highs and lows are running a little more frequently than the norm. It could be the economy, it could be the weather, but I assume it is the sunspots.
Personally my current unusual experience is with tremors. At times it is almost as strong as in Parkinsons. My innards, for which I mean, my nerves are all feeling intesified. My molecules are agitated in a manner akin to boiling. At least that is my sensation.
I know we MSers are supposed to stay out of the heat, but I am a woman who likes to be outside and active too. I have been taking golf lessons. That gets me outside in 90 degree weather with the humidity hovering at 80-90%. Perhaps it's not good for me in one way, but from my perspective it is very good for me. I learn, I move, I conquer exhaustion. There is no better feeling than winning. Well I exagerate, I know there are many better feelings than winning. It is the feeling of overcoming the enemy when the enemy is thyself.
So my tremors are due to sunspots. Call it denial if you will. I will call it joy. Perhaps I will be lucky enough to even see the Northern Lights as they whip across the night sky in phosphorescent splendor. We are to have a meteor shower soon too. My spirit is happy. After all, I am a golden ray of sunshine, allowed to dance upon the earth for a time!
