Autumn Dreams...


To the Enigma Cafe Folks....
I am still sitting here in the dark, trying to heal this eye. This is what happens when you don't have insurance, you have to rely on your own healing skills...but you all have been patient, and I appreciate that. So for the next couple of days I am going to post music and art. This was definently my worse bleed in 5 years ( I had a bad eye injury in 2001, and it weakened my eye, so ce la vie).I can only check my email and blogging is down to about one hour a day.This is definently teaching me some patience.

Everybody left wonderful comments, I encourage you all to go read each others blogs, you all are insightful and thoughtful, from Josie to Tomcat to Walking Man to Daniel Down Under. I encourage you all to go over and read Cosmic Messenger, he has a new post up. He reccommended Joan Armatrading...she is wonderful and not heard near enough ( yes, she was big in the 1970's , and she is back with a wonderful Blues album. Click the Title to enjoy some of her latest with a really interesting video. "In These Times" ).

Breaking News:11am: UAW on strike, but MSM can;t get the story straight...there is talk that it is related to " Retiree Health Care Benifits", this will effect thousands of families, 73,000 workers. First Strike since 1976.

Art is Georgia O'Keefe, "Lake George".......

Please, forget about blogging until you're well. Sit back and with a glass of fine wine and listen to some good music.

Sorry re the health scenario. Do take good care, and let your eye heal. There are good herbs for that too- Omega 3, Lutein, and AREDS vitamins. Feel better sweetie-- slides a cuppa cyber tea your way, turns on new age healing music. Ever listen to Deva Primal?

LET'S TALK said...

Hi Enigma, sorry to here about your health problem. I'm glad that you have your son their to make sure that all the healing required for you goes well. Take care OK and be safe.

You are our Pirate DJ, Enigma! I love Joan Armatrading, been hooked since "Love and Affection (ah-woo-hoo)".

I've been watching as much as I can take of Ahmadinejad today. Don't know WHAT to think. Only a few yrs ago, I would'nt believe anything he said. Now, after all the lies we've been fed, I don't know & I wonder what others are thinking. I'll leave it at that.

Oh & that little Retiree Health Care Benefit problem GM has is only the tip of the pension iceberg many large corps are facing. They simply can't pay out what they promised. Of course, their execs can still rake off major $$$millions, no prob, even if the corp founders under their leadership. I've got relatives who worked at GM for decades. The main reason they stayed even though they hated it was because of the pension & lifetime health benefit promises. So, what will happen? Will the Fed step in through PBGP & cover the shortage? If so, that means once again WE ALL will pay to cover a mega-corp's mismanaged debts. And meanwhile, where's MY pension/lifetime health bene's, hmmm? Nevermind, that lockbox has been picked & raided & stuffed with worthless IOU's.

Just some Monday thoughts, Enigma, hope you don't mind. I'm also thinking of your eye & willing it to recover. Robert R's Rx of fine wine sounds very good to me. ~~ D.K.

damn enigma
Don't make me come to your house. You don't mess around with your eyes.I hope it isn't anything major. They must have community healthcare there or something? Free care for the uninshured poor at Hospital emergency? Come on you. Namaste!

enigma4ever said...

Okay...this is my one hour a day...

Patriot: whelp the thing is the Blog is my fix, the one thing that makes me very happy....Community Healthcare ??? ah dear that would be Canada that you are thinking of......there is NO free care anywhere....you gotta pay for care...that is the way of it- an ER visit would cost my hundreds I don't have...but thanks for caring..so here I sit...and yeah, I pray that it is okay...it does this like 2 times a year....and yeah, if I had insurance I would go get it checked...but it is Money I don't have ....

DK: I agree with all that you say...I have been watching that and also the Monks situation...two things worth watching..and yes I watched the speech at Columbia...

Lets Talk: yup 6-6 is in charge of humor...and bad movies..

Got Democracy: yup...doing all the above...and more..and green tea...just lying low...and waiting for it to heal...

Robert: yup..lots of music and crappy TV...and sorry but I actually don't drink...so I will pass on the wine....but thanks....( I do cook with it sometimes...)...and the blog is my thing...makes me feel better,. I wasn't joking it is medicinal...

thanks all....take care...

Hope your doing better and one thing I might add is if its too dark to be sitting there than turn a light on.
LOL...LOL...

Sorry, bad joke, I know and I shouldn't have made it. Just trying to lighten things up with a little humor.

Have your 6-6 find the movie Forbidden Planet. It is very good and has Robby the Robot in it.

It also shows us what evil lurks in ones mind or as it is called in the movie the ID.

In fact it was just on cable television this past weekend. However I didn't watch it as I was putting my post together.

Take care and get better soon.

God Bless you.

Josie said...

Enigma, what did you do to your eye? Want to borrow my pirate patch?

I love, love, love the Georgia O'Keeffe painting you have on your post. Doesn't it just perfectly suit this time of year?

I hope you're feeling better soon.

Cheers,
Josie

Have been offline but through my great technical knowledge and skills (i.e., I don't know what the flip I did to restore connectivity) I am back and hoping your resting will bring you back to us stronger than ever.

We need you back full strength, enigma. In the meantime, rest and recuperate, knowing Bush is taking this opportunity to reload. (grin)

Aaron A. said...

Get well soon.
It will be quieter without your incite.(I mean that in a good way).

the walking man said...

Be well

Jamie said...

Good Morning. I hope the eye continues to heal. Thank you for the O'Keefe. She is a great way to start any morning.

Ron Hudson said...

Take good care of yourself so that you can come back and stimulate our minds with your words soon....I miss your work in the ICP.

Ron

Mary Ellen said...

Get better soon, kiddo. We need you around here!

TomCat said...

E4e, I appreciate all to well what your are suffering. I lost my health insurance when my job was Bushwhacked by the economy in 2004. Get better soon. {{{hug}}}

I do not know where you live but there is community Health care and free if you are poor. I know some who use it. I lost my insurance and spent 6 hours in ER. It was paid for. Contact your local community and ask Dear. Call the hospital abd tell them your situation. I do not remember the name of the office but billing would be a nice start. There are programs out there trust me! I am still having problems with my email but try it please!

an average patriot said...

enigma
I guess I still have email problems. I can receive but not send. When I figure it out I will send you one. I won't talk here but it is even worse than you depict. I have written on it many times and extensively. I could write a book and on experience. It is a very touchy subject when you realize illegals must be cared for but you are screwed. Not right!

enigma4ever said...

I am emailing a little today...and will blog later tonight....and answer everyone here...now I have to feed 6-6....more later...thank you all for coming....and know I am mending..

Blueberry said...

Take care of that eye, and might consider that pirate patch. They are sexy anyway.
