I had a cycling accident a few years ago that left me with a "severe" brain injury. Among a lot of other things this has left me partially sighted. I was in hospital for months (and in a coma for some time). I still undergo regular therapy; can no longer go to work. I have been told that I will not do so again. My brain injury related change of personality is very difficult for my family and I am in real danger of loosing them. Thank God I was wearing a helmet. I have no idea of the outcome if I hadn't been but am glad that I didn't take the risk. By the way I have no memory of how the accident happened (nor of rather a lot such as my children being born/growing up). If there is the slightest chance that they can save lives/reduce injury, we must wear one. Please.
It was indeed Fish Rising that I was listening to. Today might be Gong and/or Here & Now.
While discussing the subject of music, I made this comment , last night, to a member of my running club:
"I am not sure that would be impressed by replacing recovery sessions with sitting in a circle and passing a big spliff around!"
Her reply was:
"That reminds me of Roy Harper gigs in the late 80's. He always had a spliff stuck in his fret board. Happy days sitting in a pool of beer on the floor in some student union venue wreathed in pot fumes." Who says all running clubs are hardcore and competitive!!
