Dear Readers

I wish you peace, vibrant health and happiness.

As a writing coach, I remind my dear clients to  showcase “tags” on their websites and media kits – tags are keywords and key phrases – author’s name, book titles, themes, messages, mission statements  (synonymous with their platforms) -  to help readers  find the authors and their books on cyberspace.

As a person who needs resources for myself and for loved ones, I type combinations of “tags” to find sites that would lead me to experts, services, information I need.

May you have the energy to conduct the research or have a loyal advocate to help you plow though resources.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Know what site you are looking at.  Is it a government website? Government sites are .gov (not .com, not .net)

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Are you a senior who wants to work from home?

 

I typed into search box these tags:  “job training for seniors to work at home”

This is not a .gov  however it is a reputable and wonderful resource for the San Francisco, California area.   https://www.selfhelpelderly.org/job-training-programs

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Are you disabled and want to work from home?

I typed into the search box these tags:  “government programs for disabled people to work from home”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

A loved one suffers chronic dizziness.

She has MediCare.  Her doctors haven’t been helpful. Another dear friend told me that the HMO might pay for a “second opinion” and to look into UCSF and Stanford.

Loving family members and friends love helping each other …  especially when research and advocacy require team work.

I searched using these tags:
“UCSF dizziness”
Oh my goodness, here’s their page for “second opinion”


When I searched using

“Stanford dizziness” … 
search engine added the tag “clinic”

Oh my, look at these departments at Stanford for dizziness


I clicked on:

In the book

IMMUNE:  Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive

by Philipp Dettmer

Chapter 43 – pages 286 -288 say:
“To understand the role of stress and the immune system, we have to look back millions of years, to a simpler but much more cruel time in our developmental history. In order to survive, your ancestors had to deal with the evolutionary pressures the environment subjected them to. In the wild, stress is usually connected with existential danger, like a rival that crosses into your territory or a predator that wants to make you its meal.
[....]
“…  So one of the adaptations to stress was to accelerate certain immune mechanisms while slowing down others.
[....]
“… Psychological stress has actual and immediate physical consequences for the immune system, many of them not helpful. The thing about stress is that it is similar to your immune response in one extremely important aspect: When it works as it is intended to, stress is a great mechanism that helps solve an immediate problem and then shuts itself off afterwards. But the nature of the stressors we encounter in the modern world is different than the ones we evolved with. In the past the lion either got you or you escaped — either way, your stress stopped.
[....]
“In general, chronic stress seems to disrupt the ability of the body to shut down inflammation and causes chronic inflammation. And as we discussed before, chronic inflammation has been linked to a higher risk for numerous diseases, from cancer to diabetes, heart and autoimmune diseases, and also a general frailty and higher chance of death…..”

Mayo Clinic https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/depression/symptoms-causes/syc-20356007  says:

“Depression is a mood disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. Also called major depressive disorder or clinical depression, it affects how you feel, think and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have trouble doing normal day-to-day activities, and sometimes you may feel as if life isn’t worth living. More than just a bout of the blues, depression isn’t a weakness and you can’t simply “snap out” of it….”

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

Merriam-Webster dictionary https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/depression says:

– a state of feeling sad: low spirits : melancholy

specifically: a mood disorder that is marked by varying degrees of sadness, despair, and loneliness and that is typically accompanied by inactivity, guilt, loss of concentration, social withdrawal, sleep disturbances, and sometimes suicidal tendencies.

“For a very long time scientists thought the brain was an organ beyond treatment. If something went wrong or if one was born with a deficit, the conclusion was ‘tough luck.’ Not so anymore. There are revolutionary techniques that can alleviate anything from chronic pain to Parkinson’s disease or Down syndrome. Dr. Norman Doidge lays it out in his book The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity. He’ll discuss this, and more, with Steve Paikin. ”

Dr. Norman Doidge explains:

“The Brain is NOT like a fixed hard-wired machine. The Brain changes it’s wiring – the word that describes this property is neuroplasticity. The Brain’s structure and functions can be changed by our activities and by our mental experiences.”

“Using energy to facilitate neuroplasticity for healing.  The ancient word ‘hælan’ – to cure, to restore, to make whole again.”

2024 June 4, 12:54pm; June 5, 10:43am; June 6, 19:46 California (Mille merci, chere Sabine!)

 

Claudine's balcony garden, Paris

Dear Readers

I wish you a good day and night, always.

Thank you, Mr. Roald Dahl, for having written ESIO TROT (  esiotrot is “tortoise” spelled backward)

Thank you, screenwriters Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer, for the movie ROALD DAHL’S ESIO TROT

When depression robs my creative energy to write, I look for “happy movies” to lift me which then inspires me to write about the themes in the movie which then leads me to resume working on my own projects.

Yesterday (June 3), the names (“tags”) of these two actors helped me find the movie ROALD DAHL’S ESIO TROT

Judi Dench (as Mrs. Silver) and Dustin Hoffman (as Mr. Hoppy) and James Corden (as Narrator)

Soundtrack includes Louis Armstrong’s singing “A Kiss To Build A Dream On” composed by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby and Oscar Hammerstein II.

https://genius.com/Louis-armstrong-a-kiss-to-build-a-dream-on-lyrics

 

This is a movie I want to watch again and again… it’s like re-living a joyful day.

In the movie… Narrator tells us:

“Mr. Hoppy, the hero of our story, lived in a nice flat in an apartment block in London. There are three things you should know about Mr. Hoppy.  He’s kind, he’s shy, and, most importantly, he’s not that guy in the hat.”

(Mr. Hoppy is the man holding the elevator door for  Mr. Mavrokoukoudopolous the old man with the hat and cane. By the way, since the setting is London. Elevator is called a “lift”)

At the fourth viewing of this movie … I see just how wonderfully the story is crafted.

At  two minutes into the movie – first foreshadowing of Mr. Hoppy’s door which is crucial for the “climax” scene.

He turns on his CD player – Louis Armstrong’s singing “A Kiss To Build A Dream On”

Mr. Hoppy reaches into his satchel and places into his fruit bowl – one apple, one orange, one banana.  He opens his refrigerator, we see one tomato.

Narrator tells us “It’s [This story is] going to be full of passion, surprises… as indeed is our Mr. Hoppy.”

As the volume of the musical instrumental increases, we see Mr. Hoppy affectionately tending to his balcony-garden; his irrigation system drips water onto the colorful plants.

Narrator says:

“The truth is, there were two loves in Mr. Hoppy’s life. One was his flowers. The other was his secret love that he kept all to himself. Like so many secrets, it was the most important thing of all about him. Because Mr. Hoppy was in love… with the girl downstairs.”

(“the girl” is the vibrant Mrs. Silver, a widow,, probably in her seventies. Mrs. Silver’s balcony is on the floor below Mr. Hoppy’s.  We hear her at around four minutes and thirty-three seconds into the movie when she says “Good morning, Mr. Hoppy.”  Then we see her.    Her main love is her tortoise named Alfie.)

By the end of the first five minutes, I am pulled into the story world.

By the end of the first seven minutes, I am completely hooked with these two characters.

At 13:36 when Mr. Hoppy has the courage to say something personal to Mrs. Silver, he can’t see from his balcony that Mrs. Silver (in her wide-brimmed straw hat) has just inserted earbuds and couldn’t possibly hear him.

At 28:57 we see the second foreshadowing with Mr. Hoppy’s door.

At 54:38 we see the third foreshadowing with that door.

LAUGHING LIFTS DEPRESSION

In the scene where Mr. Hoppy is approaching the lift in the lobby with THE gadget, Mrs. Silver (wearing happy colors) is coming out of the lift. She tells him that she’s going to a dance marathon to raise money for charity and that they need sponsors. Mr. Hoppy says he would like to be a sponsor, would donate a pound. When Mrs. Silver reminds him that this is for charity, he says:
“A pound a minute”

(I laughed out loud; laughing shifts energy, lifts depression. So does smiling for one’s self.  For me, laughing is a stronger elixir.)

I learned these British phrases:

“very good news”  -  In the lift (elevator), Mrs. Silver says:  “What a quiet lift. It’s very good news.”

She calls herself “a silly sausage”

“a good old knees-up” means “to dance”

The little boy’s mother says to her son: “I’m doing dinner.”

 

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

In the children’s book, Mrs. Silver never finds out about Mr. Hoppy’s using deception to win her affections; in the movie, her finding out that he used trickery serves as the climax of the story.

In the children’s book, there is no Mr. Pringle;  in the movie, this character serves as archetypes Herald and Trickster and is the person who creates complications for protagonist Mr. Hoppy.

    My 2018 artist statement for A PLACE OF HER OWN Exhibition which ran May 12 through June 24, 2018 at J-SEI in Emeryville, California.

    Teresa Jade LeYung

    Four smoothened wood boxes represent my dream home ? a place where I can balance the four areas of my life.  The green, blue, pink, gold (from paintings and mixed media art created by Cynthia Tom, Cris Matos, Chandra Garsson, Maria K.W. Leung) represent my affinity with Nature.

    I dream of four desks so that I would not have to constantly clear off table space to make room for one project while having to put away my other projects.

    All that I do and want to do are equally precious to me.  Just as there are four points on a compass, my four desks will allow me to go forward with my work with clarity.

    And, when I say work, I am talking about what makes me want to get up each morning with a smile on my face and a spring in my walk.  I think beauty. I become beauty.

    I transform “I was” to “I AM”

    I was a child witness to family violence.

    I was a frightened immigrant.

    I was an adult receiver of violence.

    I AM Teresa Jade LeYung who speaks openly through my writing and advocacy, my immigrant experience, and my knowing beauty.  As an author, a story consultant, and a found-object artist and student of A PLACE OF HER OWN™, I empower women to transform their own stories.  I think beauty. I AM beauty. Please visit me at http://lovemadeofheart.com/blog/

      Hello  Everyone,

      I wish you total wellness.

      I am grateful to all the people who care about my wellness / who teach me how to look for the goodness in obstacles / who inspire me to be happy, in spite of illness.  

    • So many people suffer silently – their illnesses don’t display overt signs like wearing a cast or a splint.  Whenever someone asks me the question “How are you doing?” …  I feel gratitude and I reply “Thank you for asking.”  (That’s all… I don’t go into details except with close friends. Just grateful that the person asked)  Whenever I ask someone that question… I am prepared to stop and listen.

    • This past month, while my Body/Brain continues to learn from Neuro Integration System (N.I.S.) and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) treatments from Dr. Jae Reed, DC, and, from Chi Nei Tsang treatments from Stephanie Wilger, NC …  I have been listening to  interviews with Christopher Vogler posted on YouTube channel “Film Courage”.  Mr. Vogler is the author of The Writer”s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers.

    • Christopher Vogler’s 12 steps of the Hero’s Journey

    • Ordinary World

      Call To Adventure

      Refusal Of The Call

      Meeting Of The Mentor

      Crossing The Threshold (Launch Into The Special World)

      Tests, Allies, Enemies

      Approach To The Inmost Cave

      The Ordeal

      Reward

      The Chase

      Resurrection

      Return With Elixir

    • Illness propels us to all the stages of a Hero’s Journey, whether we want to go or not; for me, the stages are repeating – I would feel better, then worse, then better… My Body knows so much more than my conscious Brain.

                As Dr. Amy Grace Lam’s poem says: “Maybe we only need to ask, ask our remember bones.”

    • All the cells in our body perform as archetypes on our journeys / in our stories.

    • Thank you, Philipp Dettmer, for your book Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive.  Mr. Dettmer is the creator of the popular science YouTube channel “Kurzgesagt—In a Nutshell”  https://www.youtube.com/@kurzgesagt/videos


    • Christopher Vogler’s 8 types of Archetypes/Characters

      Herald

      Mentor

      Threshold Guardian

      Ally

      Shapeshifter

      Shadow

      Trickster

      The person who introduced story-telling to me was my mother who was a school teacher in Hong Kong before she immigrated to the USA; she told me stories – translations of Aesop’s Fables. Even though I don’t remember details of the fables, I do recall how a character’s “cleverness” or “perseverance” can get one out of trouble.

      (Thank you, the folks at https://www.umass.edu/aesop/fables.php, for showing Aesop’s Fables.)

      The person who told me about the book that would inspire me to write about my experiences is Dr. Susan Thackrey, Ph.D. who taught me compassion.

      The author who wrote that book (The Woman Warrior: Memoirs of a Girlhood Among Ghosts) is Maxine Hong Kingston.

      In 1998 award-winning writer Martha Alderson (who would become The Plot Whisperer https://marthaalderson.com/books-and-ebooks/) introduced me to Christopher Volger’s book The Writer”s Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers.

      Fast forward to 2023…

      To my client, compassionate author Edward C. Hartshorn, I am cheering for you and all your characters in your new book. May you gain more aha moments listening to the interviews with Christopher Vogler.

    2023 September 6 (at dear Sabine’s serene home); updated September 28, 2023; updated October 9, 2023; updated Oct. 15, 16, 2023; updated December 10, 2023

    Hello Everyone,

    I wish you vibrant health!

    Thanks to Healers, Books, Our Immune System, Our Beautiful Ever-Changing Brain, Our Internal Organs, Our Body and Vitality!

    In August 2020 (which was five months into “Shelter In Place” in the county I lived in during the COVID pandemic), Shingles virus “woke up” in my body …oh the pain and the rash on one side of upper torso. Then after the blisters cleared, the hot pain stayed. This condition is called “postherpetic neuralgia”.

    Luckily for me, through neuroplasticity coaching from Dr. Danielle Rosenman,

    books by Norman Doidge, M.D.,

    lectures by Professor Lorimer Moseley about the “role of pain” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5p6sbi_0lLc

    and the workbook TRANSFORMING THE BRAIN IN PAIN: NEUROPLASTIC TRANSFORMATION by Dr. Michael H. Moskowitz  and Dr. Marla D. Golden,

    and, moral support from dear folks  who care about me …

    I was successful retraining my Brain to stop sending chronic pain signals to Body Tissue.

    However the pain sensation morphed into a sticky damp heat sensation.

    These symptoms then awakened another virus in my nervous system. Also, COVID-Vaccination worsened my condition.

    My internal thermostat is stuck at an uncomfortable down right yucky setting. My immune system had needed to use heat when Shingles virus got activated; however, my system is still in “fight” mode three years later.

    Illness leads to depression … a nasty loop.

    This is what happens when our systems are “too aggressive” trying to protect us.

    By the way – Shingles is caused by the varicella-zoster virus — the same virus that causes chickenpox. After a person has had chickenpox, the virus lies inactive in nerve tissue near the spinal cord and brain. Years later, the virus may reactivate as shingles. https://www.mayoclinic.org/

    The “memories” of viruses (keloid scars from Shingles rash a “convincing” reminder)… telling my systems to continue fighting. Body doesn’t forget anything!

    Brain-Body worn out from fighting.

    Fast forward…

    Through receiving Neuro Integration System (N.I.S.) treatments and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) treatments from a master-level practitioner who is a chiropractor  – Dr. Jae Reed, D.C … my Body-Brain circuitry is learning how to reset and restore systems to harmony.

    Through receiving Chi Nei Tsang treatments from a master-level practitioner – Stephanie Wilger, NC … my Body is sending direct communication to Brain.

    Clear communication between Brain and Body REMOVES the obstacles, letting the Body repair itself the best way possible -  naturally.

    *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

    Stephanie Wilger, NC
    Healthcare Practitioner & Educator
    HEALTH HAPPENS, LLC
    I see Stephanie for Chi Nei Tsang treatments and also for keloid scars (I have patches of  keloid scars as result of Shingles virus rash over-producing protein and not properly healing)
    Chi means  life force energy that carries information.
    Nei Tsang means internal organs.

    Chi Nei Tsang translates as “internal organs chi transformation”.

    *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

    Jae Reed, DC
    Azure Sky Chiropractic & Scar Tissue Remediation
    I see Dr. Reed for Neuro Integration System (NIS) and Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) combined with chiropractic adjustments, with hand-held instruments, muscle-testing to determine where a neurological pathway has been disrupted and locations of weakness in the meridian system.

    *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

    Thanks to the encouragement from the folks I care about and who care about me, I  resume my work as a writer and story-consult and blogger, go to treatments, re-read books to learn about how hard the human body works, and, I turn depression into appreciating one moment at a time.

    My Quest to Wellness by learning from Holistic Healers on how to receive and send instructions for what I call “Brain-Body peace talks”.

    the book - Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive

    Thank you, dear Sue, for telling me about the book

    Immune: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive

    by Philipp Dettmer, creator of the popular science YouTube channel “Kurzgesagt—In a Nutshell”

    https://www.youtube.com/@kurzgesagt/videos

    Page 62 of the book IMMUNE: A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive by Philipp Dettmer
    “Inflammation is the universal response of your immune system to any sort of breach or damage or insult. No matter if you burn yourself, cut yourself, or get a bruise. No matter if bacteria or viruses infect your nose, lungs, or gut. No matter if a young tumor kills a few civilian cells by stealing their nutrients or you have an allergic reaction to a food, inflammation is the response. Damage or danger – PERCEIVED OR REAL – causes inflammation.”

     

    Book description from the publisher:

    “You wake up and feel a tickle in your throat. Your head hurts. You’re mildly annoyed as you get the kids ready for school and dress for work yourself. Meanwhile, an epic war is being fought, just below your skin. Millions are fighting and dying for you to be able to complain as you head out the door.

    “But most of us never really stop to ask: What even is our immune system?

    “Second only to the human brain in its complexity, it is one of the oldest and most critical facets of life on Earth. Without it, you would die within days. In IMMUNE, Philipp Dettmer, the brains behind the most popular science channel on YouTube, takes readers on a journey through the fortress of the human body and its defenses. There is a constant battle of staggering scale raging within us, full of stories of invasion, strategy, defeat, and noble self-sacrifice. In fact, in the time you’ve been reading this, your immune system has probably identified and eradicated a cancer cell that started to grow in your body.

    “Each chapter delves into an element of the immune system, including defenses like antibodies and inflammation as well as threats like bacteria, allergies, and cancer, as Dettmer reveals why boosting your immune system is actually nonsense, how parasites sneak their way past your body’s defenses, how viruses work, and what goes on in your wounds when you cut yourself.

    “Enlivened by engaging full-color graphics and immersive descriptions, IMMUNE turns one of the most intricate, interconnected, and confusing subjects — immunology — into a gripping adventure through an astonishing alien landscape. IMMUNE is a vital and remarkably fun crash course in what is arguably, and increasingly, the most important system in the body.”

    “For a very long time scientists thought the brain was an organ beyond treatment. If something went wrong or if one was born with a deficit, the conclusion was ‘tough luck.’ Not so anymore. There are revolutionary techniques that can alleviate anything from chronic pain to Parkinson’s disease or Down syndrome. Dr. Norman Doidge lays it out in his book The Brain’s Way of Healing: Remarkable Discoveries and Recoveries from the Frontiers of Neuroplasticity. He’ll discuss this, and more, with Steve Paikin. ”

    Dr. Norman Doidge explains:

    “The Brain is NOT like a fixed hard-wired machine. The Brain changes it’s wiring – the word that describes this property is neuroplasticity. The Brain’s structure and functions can be changed by our activities and by our mental experiences.”

    “Using energy to facilitate neuroplasticity for healing.  The ancient word ‘hælan’ – to cure, to restore, to make whole again.”

    2023 January 9,  20:40 California – Teresa Jade LeYung’s blog post #619

    Dear Reader,

    Today I responded to a post from a fellow-member of Women’s Brain Exchange network. Her subject line was: “Recommendations for Parkinson’s”

    I wish to share my response through this blog post.

    I cheer for all brave folks who are coping with disease and illness and all the compassionate advocates!

    I was an advocate for my father – he thrived in spite of Parkinson’s.

    Information is powerful! What I had learned as an advocate enriched my own life and also everyone else’s in Papa’s community.

    Be ahead of the game – know that Parkinson’s is a movement disorder… thus, find (not just a general neurologist) but a neurologist whose patient base is mainly movement disorder patients and who does not rely on “old” techniques.

    Same for physical therapists – folks who aren’t trained in movement disorders caused heartaches for Papa. The right folks taught my father ways to “refresh” the brain.


    RESOURCES:

    Michael J. Fox Foundation https://www.michaeljfox.org/  says:  “The Michael J. Fox Foundation is dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease through an aggressively funded research agenda and to ensuring the development of improved therapies for those living with Parkinson’s today.”
    Membership is free for patients and their advocates.
    Pull down “Understanding Parkinson’s” tab.  Then look for “Education and Inspiration” tab.  You’ll see recordings of webinars and podcasts.

    When one is not feeling well… learning new ways to improve one’s health can be overwhelming. I wish everyone compassionate advocates to help make the journey a gentler one.

    Dr. Norman Doidge reminds us that WALKING helps our brain produce new brain cells – prehistoric humans and animals walked to find food and shelter, to get away from predators – the brain releases chemicals to promote movement. 
    While using exercise equipment helps us build strength … walking requires our Brain to make decisions… our Brain learns about our surroundings and conditions when we walk.    Walk :)   Walk :)   Walk :)
    Our brain releases beneficial chemicals even when the movement is imaginary. Athletes, musicians, all types of performers use “Visualization”.  Mind-Body connection at work!

    I am a Curious George. I like to know “why” when someone says “Try this”

    Learn how our beautiful brains work :)

    Please read both books written by Norman Doidge, M.D.
    Ask librarians at public libraries.
    Dr. Doidge’s books have been translated into 30+ languages!
    I must have bought close to 100 copies of THE BRAIN’S WAY OF HEALING (Dr. Doidge’s second book) to give to family members, friends, and my father’s neighbors.
