August 19, 2019-
The day started with two good turns- A young singer with a powerful voice invited me, through her father/webmaster, to like her Facebook page; The National Weather Service now says we may get rain, over Labor Day weekend.
I “liked ” the page, as anything I can do, to encourage a fellow autistic to build on personal strengths, is going to happen. I’ll take rain, whenever it comes. Last year, it came during a huge Country Music festival-in early autumn. The world is turning on its axis, it seems, so in addition to whatever atmospheric changes we are inculcating, Mother Nature is making some changes of her own.
I read a study that claims people who nap more in the afternoon, and wake up at night, are at risk of Alzheimer’s, down the road. That would mean a lot of us who nod off, in the heat of the day, are bound to find themselves in a different state of mind, ten years hence. To me, though, the crux is often hydration. I nod off less, when my water intake is up. Since the brain is largely water, that could have some bearing on dementia, as well. Synapses fire better, when there is a proper level of saturation.
It was hot enough today, that I felt it prudent to give my laptop a three-hour break. Reading and a Planet Fitness visit took the place of correspondence and pontification. Not to worry, the latter is about finished, for now.
Remember, the Dog Days rarely last beyond Labor Day, which is two weeks off. Stay saturated, my friends.
