VOICES IN OUR HEAD (re-titled)

As I said earlier, I am NOT a member of Phi Beta Kappa, but somehow was reading a copy of their journal “The American Scholar”  (Summer 2012) in bed tonight and on page  48 came across a very apropos article called Living with Voices.  It’s so good I found it  for you at https://theamericanscholar.org/living-with-voices/ so you can read the whole thing.  You don’t have to subscribe or sign up–just click on the name of the article under Summer 2012,Living with Voices.
There’s a lot there to interest you, but what I glommed in on was how to deal with voices in your head, especially aggressive (the Shadow?) ones.  And the author (T. M. Luhrmann) never used the word at all.

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.

    Gloomed should be a word, but it probably isn’t yet. How about “glommed”?
