My Float Tank Expierence


I had my first experience in a float tank (Isolation tank) yesterday. I have been on a bit of a search as of late to find new ways to “work out” my brain. I mean if I can run across the Country, if I can complete an Ironman, if I can bush my physical limits. What will happen if I push my cognitive limits?

I have worked out my brain with programs, from simple things like Sudoku, Rubik’s cubes, Luminosity and lots of…

March 13, 1968 my Brother's TBI

There is a clip in the movie KunDin about the Dalai Lama, where his holiness talks about the fact that the course of one's life can change with the snap of a finger. 

How true this was in our family. Not just on one occasion but many. 

On March 13, 1968 in Los Angeles, California, my brother, after only working at a Standard Oil Company Service Station for two weeks, and attending pre-law school was robbed by two…

And whoso suffers most hath most to give."…

Farewell to a friend: RIP Thomas William Weese AKA Totemwood Tommy

[This post, this blessed, difficult post has been a long, long time in coming.  I have wrestled with it, mulled it over in my head, let it rest, wrote and re-wrote countless times.  As with all things TBI, emotions zap us of precious energy.  Oftentimes, the feelings just need to be until the TBIer finds strength.]

My first recollection of Tommy was at Brain Injury support group in Bremerton.  He, with the help of the group facilitators, led the group on an interesting exploration…
