I haven't worn a wristwatch in probably 15 years. This week I got a medical alert bracelet. Today when the other Mr asked me what time it was, I sensed the bracelet and instinctively looked at it for the time. Muscle memory.

I just wish their fries weren't so weak.

Yes I have them. I'm experiencing them now. Not every night, but there are mornings where I wake up in a really deep funk or sadness. Like yours, they're not nightmares and I don't remember much of them, except they leave a feeling that I need to shake off or it persists. I'm not scared after a nightmare, but I'm sad after one of these dreams.

For me, I think they're a reflection of what's going on outside and inside. These are very stressful times, and I think that stress manifests itself in dreams. In how we cope and don't cope. I think one of the purposes of a dream is to process the day's experiences and file it away as memories or feelings. Sometimes they spill over to waking. Another purpose is to attempt to deal with what we don't deal with in reality. All that stuff still needs processing in the brain. For a lot of people, it helps to give it words, either writing it down or talking to someone about it.

There are actual ways you can influence your dreams. Not directly, but you can plant seeds of what you want to dream about. Lots of stuff online about lucid dreaming or dream incubation. Stay away from any dream dictionaries. They're worthless, unless Jung wrote it.

One thing that works for me with sad dreams. When I wake up and feel that sadness and realize it's from a dream, I stop and literally shake it off. I actually shake my head and tell myself to let the dream go. I find that shaking my head kind of resets the brain and gets rid of the cobwebs.

This is totally new to me but Colombia decriminalized euthanasia all the way back in 1997, and this woman is the first person to be granted a permit allowing her to die when she wants. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news...

If anyone's looking for a streaming media device, Walmart has their "onn" brand on sale for under $20.

4K, Android TV v11, no bloatware, apps from the Playstore. I have one and like it better than the Fire Stick.

Yeah, Walmart. But it's only $20. https://www.walmart.com/ip/onn-Android-TV-UHD-Str...

It's a gamble, isn't it.

I know of people who didn't save and now they're living in a developing South American country full of violence and poverty and civil war. Oh sure, they say they love it.

Chappelle's response? "If this is what being canceled is like, I love it. Fuck Twitter. Fuck NBC News, ABC News, all these stupid ass networks. I’m not talking to them. I’m talking to you. This is real life."

See. Just like I said. He's like your crazy old Republican Trump-loving uncle who drank too much at Thanksgiving, only Chappelle didn't drink.

It's the media's fault! It's everyone else's fault!
