What the World Needs Now…

Published July 9, 2021 by Nan Mykel

Is NOT tattoos. Oh I know many tattoos have a happy theme, but I’ve suddenly gotten old and cantankerous and come to feel negative about tattoos. Thoughts come to mind, such as being at the pearly gates and telling God they perfected his original design, or children growing up to feel not sufficiently okay in their bodies, that they need to try and improve, or that getting a tattoo will be a good investment towards growing up, or an easy way to make a statement about their place in the alter culture, or express their anger, or hide their real vulnerable selves. I feel sad that the attitude towards females today–both of men and most women–has resulted in women placing so much of their self esteem into being “sexy” as opposed to being a human to be respected and taken seriously. I know evolution plays a big role in this behavior, but gosh, I still feel both sad and frustrated about it. Unfortunately, a number of insecure men appear to judge their own worth by their female following –or lack of following (see Incel). I wonder if the increasing number of transgender individuals reflects some of the situation. If you doubt that the number is increasing, take a look at Everything Teenage LGBTQ. Or perhaps it’s just that the issues are coming to the surface more. I remember reading that one F2M was surprised to be able to walk the street after dark without being hassled or threatened when he began presenting as his chosen gender (male).

Nuff said, maybe, so I’ll go onto other thoughts. NOW I’m onto another topic: Dreams. I found an apt, succinct statement about dreams I wanted to share, from Hall and Nordby’s The Individual and His Dreams.

“Dreams objectify that which is subjective, they visualize that which is invisible, they transform the abstract into the concrete, and they make conscious that which is unconscious. They come from the most archaic alcoves of the mind as well as from the peripheral levels of waking consciousness. Dreams are the kaleidoscope of the mind”. (p 146) Remember that the language of dreams is metaphoric.

I Had a Dream

Published December 15, 2015 by Nan Mykel

As an incest survivor who is 80 years old and who has written a book about it last year, I thought it interesting that my father is still so alive and ornery in my dreams, at least last night.

The most interesting thing I guess is that not only did he want to kill everybody, but that I screamed for my mother to help me, and she did.
