The best thing that you can do with bad memories is to pave over them with good ones.
Have you ever had your brain completely fucked by something that you witnessed?
It happened to me last week and I now see that I have been misusing the word traumatized my whole life because I was truly traumatized by what I saw. If you have a weak stomach for harsh stories then this episode might not be for you. These are very hard times for a lot of people so I tried to pack a lot of sunshine in this episode as I always do but there is a doozy of a head fuck story coming your way here. My girlfriend experienced this trauma with me and she shares her side of this story with me and how we have been caring for each other since. I also share the philosophy of Seneca and the Stoics, my thoughts on the passing of Diego Maradona, Trump being the biggest snowflake of them all, how to deal with angry pick up trucks in rural areas, what not to do when driving through a blizzard and the mating habits of frogs. There is also the story of how a horse fell in love with me in Oregon and how being among animals can be a powerful healing medicine. The best thing you can do with bad memories is to pave over them with good ones. Hooray for the compassionate and hooray for humanity!
