My muses, my nemesis, and writing
For your blogging entertainment, here’s a picture of my muses as they hog my bed yet again:
When you have as many dogs and cats as I do…especially a Fat White Dog who loves to roll in the sand…you learn to have a topping to your bedding that doesn’t feel like you’re sleeping on sandpaper. It cuts down on the amount of dog and cat hair trying to find its way into your nose, too.
That “bedding” is what Fat White Dog is presently scrunched against.
And, now, a word about my nemesis.
No, it doesn’t have 4 feet, fur and a penchant for finding the worst possible time to walk across your keyboard.
If you read my blog, you’ve noticed I haven’t been writing much.
That’s what happens when your head feels like it wants to explode.
Yes, I wish the cause of this inconvenience was a plethora of creativity and an overload of words but, alas, I’m very light-sensitive, a condition exacerbated by trying to wear contact lenses from the age of 15 – 22 (even after the eye doctor advised against it because of chronic dry eye). I was wearing tinted glasses to counteract the light at the age of 25.
In 2018, I started using a 32 inch TV as a computer monitor and always have the screen dimmed to 30% light. It reduced eye strain considerably, allowing me to work longer hours at the office and at home.
Without the 32 inch monitor, I couldn’t work 6 hours straight, 5 days a week for 3 months in a row. And work has been greatly impaired by several post-OKC migraine attacks.
You get the picture.
Without dark tinted regular glasses, and Noir 23 sunglasses for exceptionally sunny days, migraines would have killed me long ago.
I’m thankful for the miracles of my 32″ computer screen, dark glasses, and migraine remedies every day.
