This week for Tranquil Thursday Maggie From Cave Walls said : “How we deal with chaos is our choice. It is not always an easy choice, but ultimately our responses are up to us, with a few exceptions course. We can choose a hot bath or a long walk. We may opt for a cup of tea or a shot of whiskey. Maybe a handful of cookies or an hour in a warm bath is more your style. Sometimes a chat with an understanding friend is all you need, while someone else may want to lose themselves in a good book.”

Can you recall a particularly chaotic or stressful time in your life? How did you manage the stress?

Many, Many and I always did still do retreat into my head….. Music, poetry and writing . Imagination I suppose imagine my self away from the fear, pain , grief … Here is my theme tune.

Where is the one place in the world where all your troubles disappear – even if only for a moment?

The eyes of those I love

Do you like for other people to try and raise your spirits or do you prefer to deal with things on your own?

I prefer to sort myself out but I do accept help if I can’t drag myself up .

What quote, song, book, or movie serves as an inspiration to you when things get tough?

When I was learning to walk again after breaking my back the second time the songs of Imogen Heap really kept me going especially when I was in pain and walking was the last thing I wanted to do. Her voice in my headphones really helped. Especially Breathe.

Does solitude quiet your mind or do you need to pump up the volume?

I love quiet but I love music, radio or a talking book even more.
