Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “a rainy day.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “a rainy day.” Enjoy!

A rainy day in London.

A rainy day keeping an eye on the weather.
Two friends spending a day together
In their home city.
They came by train
They have umbrellas incase of rain.

Heavy grey laden clouds hang above
The roofs opposite, threatening.
White swans glide a pair for life
Light fades rain threatening
Where can we shelter
Lights from cafes
Glisten in
Dappled
Thames.

In the afternoon yesterday , 1.45 actually, I was on the phone to my eldest son, when suddenly there were huge black things floating infront of me. I kept try to brush them away, they were like huge cobwebs then for good measure silver flashes appeared from top to bottom of my periveral vision.

I could not concentrate on the phone conversation as the lights and cobwebs were so distracting. In the beginning I could not work out what was happening then as I relaxed I realized it was my left eye. This continued all afternoon and evening, at about 17.30 I rang my optician and asked for an appointment, she said what was the problem I told her. She advised me to go as soon as possible to the eye casualty. The earliest I could go was this morning. So I spent the evening wearing dark glasses and I have to admit worrying.

This morning we were up at dawn and off to the hospital after sorting Ruby. I was there at 8.30am the department opens at 9am. I was first in and was triaged , an eye test, then drops to anesthesise my eyes, followed by a test to measure the pressure in my eyes then drops to dilate my pupils. After a while I saw the Dr and her trainee they did loads of tests and even gave me more drops the put a special lense in my left eye to do a deeper test.

In the beginning I was scared when she told me I had had a P V D. Apparently this is an age related thing ..a Posterior Vitreous Detachment. This when the Vitreous ( a jelly) at the back of the eye breaks away, and we then see black floaters infront of our eyes. The light flashes are the vitreous pulling at the retina. It’s age related. Today every thing is okay, although rather disconcerting. The Dr said to just keep an eye on things … keep an eye 👀🤣🤣🤣🤣. But to watch out for the light flashes getting worse or suddenly lots more floaters as that could mean trouble, detached retina. So any problems I was to return to the eye casualty immediately.

Apparently this can go on for weeks months or even years???? I told her this was rather disconcerting because the floaters seem huge she told me that my brain will soon compensate for these and they will not bother me as much.

In the beginning I was very worried since seeing the Dr I feel better, though because of the drops my vision is very blurry so forgive me if I am late reading posts or comments today.

So in the end, for now all is well that ends well. 💜

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS Dec. 18, 2021

It’s Saturday and time for LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday and the prompt this week is : “opposites.” Use the word “opposites” or write about things that are opposites. Have fun!

This is the second time I have written an interpretation of this song by The Rasmus because I love it and there is always more to find in this story of these two opposites.

Polar oposites were they
He the night she the day
He a fallen angel, dark
She so pure without a mark
They met, the universe exploded.
They ignored the odds against them loaded.
They were never meant to be
Yet could their love set them free.

Bare in the winter

Silent in snow

Covered in blossom in spring

Birds nest in your branches and sing

Summer brings green leaves

And you give us shade

Autumn’s hues are a sight to behold

Silent a history of secrets you hold.

Trees know so much, they see so much. We use them to build, for warmth, for furniture. We give little back. We, humans as a race are users. Vast forests and jungles are cleared in the name of progress.

Hopefully with the splinters and ashes and discarded furniture the trees go back into mother Earth so new ones may grow.

Trees and vegetation were here before us, they will be here when we are gone.

Song Lyric Sunday: Housing Benefits.5th Dec, 2021.

It’s Sunday and time for Song Lyric Sunday December 5th 2021:House, Room, Kitchen, Shower, Attic suggested by Paula of Light Motifs II.

Well first up, naughty but so good is Shaggy with mention of Bathroom and Shower .

It Wasn’t Me” is the first single from Jamaican reggae musician Shaggy‘s fifth studio album, Hot Shot (2000). The song features vocals from Rikrok. The lyrics of the song depict one man (Rikrok) asking his friend (Shaggy) what to do after his girlfriend caught him cheating on her with “the girl next door”. His friend’s advice is to deny everything, despite clear evidence to the contrary, with the phrase “It wasn’t me.”

“It Wasn’t Me” was released to contemporary hit radio on 7 November 2000 and has been regarded as Shaggy’s breakthrough in the pop market. It is his highest-charting song to date, topping the charts in Australia, Austria, Flanders, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It was the best-selling single of 2001 in the UK, selling over 1.15 million copies that year and over 1.42 million as of 2017.

Next up one of my favourite songs from Imogen Heap, Little Bird mentioning Kitchen and Lounge.

Ellipse is the third studio album from British singer-songwriter Imogen Heap. After returning from a round the world writing trip, Heap completed the album at her childhood home in Essex, converting her old playroom in the basement into a studio. The album got its name from the distinctive elliptical shape of the house. The album’s title was confirmed by Heap via her Twitter page on 25 April 2009, after being leaked onto the internet on 23 April. On 15 June, Heap confirmed that the album would be released on 24 August 2009 in the United Kingdom on Megaphonic Records and 25 August in North America on RCA Records and Epic Records and distributed by Sony BMG. Subject matter in the songs includes post break-up malaise (“Wait It Out”), domestic boredom (“Little Bird”), body image issues (“Bad Body Double”) and a common Heap theme, unrequited love (“Swoon” and “Half Life”).

Next is My Attic from Pink in the Attic.

Hurts 2B Human is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Pink. Released on April 26, 2019, by RCA Records, the album was initially planned as a standalone extended play (EP). Pursuing a sound that would be departure from her previous albums, Pink enlisted the assistance of collaborators such as Greg KurstinMax Martin, and Ryan Tedder. The album features guest appearances by Cash CashKhalidChris Stapleton, and Wrabel. The album was officially announced during Pink’s interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show broadcast in February 2019. Musically, Hurts 2B Human is a pop record whose lyrics delve into themes of love, family, introspection, life, and self-worth.

******

Finally the great Imogen Heap again with a spoken piece which she accompanies herself. Neglected Space from her Album Sparks .

Sparks is the fourth studio album by English singer Imogen Heap, released on 19 August 2014 through Megaphonic Records in the United Kingdom and through RCA Records in the United States. Recorded between 2011 to 2014 across four different continents, with a new song being written and released a new song every three months, it was primarily written and produced by Heap, with additional writing and production from collaborators Deadmau5Vishal–Shekhar, and B.o.B, as well as production from Nick Ryan.

HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE 💜

Our very talented host, LindaGHill said :

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “rev.” Use “rev” or find a word that contains it. Have fun!

Badge by Shelley Krupa.

Revert to type
Forget the hype
Your true self
The gutter snipe.

Reverb the music is here
A festival full of cheer
Dancing, singing fun
Happy place , no fear.

Reverend can be trendy
“Call me Rev let’s be friendly”
Forget the rules
They are bendy.

Reverse the car
Round the town
Reverse the frown
Turn it upside down
Reverse but not too far.

This is part of LindaGHill’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday.

One of my favourite misheard songs is Forever in blue jeans, by Niel Diamond. The first time I heard it my brain heard the title as The reverend blue jeans and it stuck.

Back in the day, when I was a teen
Pyscodelia was the scene
Mini dresses in patterns bold
In black and white not green or gold.
It made no difference if skies were grey
Black and white coloured my day.
Not for me those paisley prints
Nor huge glasses with outrageous tints.
No I was a Twiggy girl
Black white my patterns swirl.
So before my memories fade to grey
I’ll witter on about back in the day.
