There is Always Time – haikus


age doesn’t matter

one can always try new things

don’t let time pass by

don’t miss out, your loss

try something you have wanted

let your spirit fly

QUESTIONS:

  1. If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why? My great-great or great-great-great grandmother who was a full bred natural born Native American Indian. I would to hear about her life and how she came to marry the man she did. 
  2. As a child, did you have a nickname?  Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it? I was always called Terri for Teresa. Here in blogland only I am called Tessa since I always liked that name, but changing Terri for everyone to call me Tessa would just be too difficult. The first time I got snail mail addressed to Tessa Smeigh my father is very confused. He didn’t know I used Tessa online and when one of my online friends wrote me she used Tessa because that is how she knows me. 
  3. Give us three words that describe you: honest, emotional, trustworthy (yes I was a girl scout LOL!)
  4. Sneaking into a second movie at the theater (if you go to a movie house)?  Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’? Well I think it is wrong. You paid for one movie and therefore should only attend one, but that is how I got called Miss Goody Two-Shoes LOL!
  5. If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future?  Why? This is hard. I had a horrible childhood and my life up to now (I am 62) hasn’t been too good, but not sure I want to go to the future as my chronic pain isn’t going to get any better, but worse. Unless a miracle happens my life-style is also going to get worse as I get older. If I go back and still remember what my future was maybe I could change some things to make my life better.

What were you thankful for during April? I am thankful we have had much warmer weather. At least when I am outside. Inside though it is too hot and I have to run the air conditioner already which is not so good for the electric bill, but at least I have an air conditioner which a lot of people here don’t have and the farther up you go in this building , the hotter it gets.

Three Things Challenge: PL74


Three Things Challenge: PL74

Rules from originator:

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: trash, animaldebutante

Dizzy Deb

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Debbie was all dressed up in her ball gown for the debutante ball tonight. As she was making her exit out of the house and, to the car that was transporting her, she tripped over a trash can and scared away a small animal that was busily eating the trash. She landed face down in the garbage. She should have had someone escort her, she was so clumsy in her 4-inch heels.

Tenth Anniversary of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge – Letter Y is for Years of Cycling in Bipolar Disorder


Tenth Anniversary of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge

I have chosen to write for the mental health topic. It is very important to me that we support all those with mental health issues and I personally suffer from a good amount of them myself.

Letter Y is for Years of Cycling in Bipolar Disorder

******************************* 

What Is Rapid in Cycling Bipolar Disorder?

Rapid cycling is a pattern of frequent, distinct episodes in bipolar disorder. In rapid cycling, a person with the disorder experiences four or more episodes of mania or depressionin one year. It can occur at any point in the course of bipolar disorder, and can come and go over many years depending on how well the illness is treated; it is not necessarily a “permanent” or indefinite pattern of episodes.
