The Sensation of Ambient Music

My Joyous Feature

Something with ambient music gets its calming response. Making it more like anything that can lead up into a calming solution. Feel the need to put on these headphones and listen to them peacefully.

With some ambience music its like it, just let your mind calm down or anything else. Let your mind distance itself from so many things even if it’s on the negative side. Any kind of ambient music can lead to something much better.

The moment you listen to ambient music (and other types of music), your mind responds differently. It’s like visualizing what you have in mind. Your mind and body can feel at ease. It’s more like having complete freedom from everything else.

Ambience can challenge the mind and body in a different world. Mostly by listening to this type of music.

Music can bring that good feeling to so much.

The Flowers in my Mind

Untangled

I got trapped in the shadow-side
the clouds enveloping me
the deep ice and snow
burying the flowers in my mind

For months I couldn’t find
the brand new day ~ I drifted
feeling so alone and lonely
grasping white-knuckled
to the real-
to the flowers in my mind

I wept tears of fear, pain & despair
and through the stony darkness, I felt the love
and the pull of light and hope

In the dark, before the dawn, I hear
this will pass~
the voice of a brand new day reassuring me
that the flowers will rise again

Today the shade went up and the sun pointed the way
bursting through the tangle of weeds
I entered the reflective garden
which grew out of friendship
trust, and tender care

The delicate petals that hold my secrets
gently swaying, urging me to remember
it’s safe, let go, it’s over
I…

England XI For 2nd Test

England XI For 2nd Test

aspiblog

Jofra Archer will miss the second test due to a niggle, so ideas about the England XI for that match need rejigging. What follows is my effort.

THE XI IN BATTING ORDER

  1. Dominic Sibley – his long innings at the start of the first match was crucial to England’s eventual success, and they will probably need more of the same from him.
  2. Rory Burns – his dismissal in the first innings was reprehensible, but up to that point he had batted decently, and this is no time for desperate replacements.
  3. Dan Lawrence – two failures in the first match, but with Crawley still not available it makes no sense to give this slot to yet another newcomer.
  4. *Joe Root – the most indisputable of all selections at this time.
  5. Ben Stokes – had a fine first match, and England will need him to produce something in this one as well.

Statement from Dr. Tchajkova

Dignity Denied

Good morning.

Thank you for inviting me as a guest speaker.

When I started my project five years ago as a resident doctor in training, I didn’t envision how pertinent it would become to the present MAID discussion. I was inspired by a friend I met in medical school who had a spinal cord injury. When I asked him about his life, he invited me to go out in a wheelchair with him in Vancouver. It was eye-opening to experience this and talk to him, and I realized we aren’t really taught the real patient perspective in medical training.

This further inspired me to individually interview 23 people from different walks of life who had had a spinal cord injury.

I discovered that most of the people I interviewed told me no one had ever really asked them in this amount of detail the dramatic changes they underwent psychologically, and…

Statement from Kristine Cowley

Dignity Denied

Hello. I sustained a SCI in 1987 at the age of 20. After my injury I received three months in-hospital rehabilitation where I learned how to navigate the world as a person with tetraplegia, including how to manage all the altered physical functioning that comes with it. I was considered a model patient, returning to university while still in hospital. I had the support of dozens of friends and family, and still do today. I left hospital, continued University, and began training to compete in WC track. This then led to three medals and 2 world records in the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics. I returned to Winnipeg, got married and changed my name from Harder to Cowley, and took up my PhD studies, attaining a doctorate in 1998. I became a mother of twins in 1999 with a third child in 2001. I have travelled professionally and with my family throughout…
