Keep It Weird: Brain Power

Apr 22, 2011

by Michelle Traub

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

My sister the neurologist says that in the ER, they call motorcycle drivers “organ donors on wheels.” I say, whipping around the edge of a mountaintop with your skull full of high-altitude high-speed oxygen sounds like some much-needed cognitive therapy. Has your contemplation been a little lackluster as of late? Massage that gray matter into a frenzy with this mindful Keep It Weird.

    Life is precarious and all too brief. Brain surgery made me fearless. I respect the human body, but know what it is to live passively and in fear. More power to the motorcycle rider---organ donors!

  • yimmekedesign

    yimmekedesign said 7 years ago

    For as long as I remember, I look at my brain as a giant chest of drawers. When my mind is restless, I know that all my drawers are open and one by one I try to close them, so I get some calmness in my head. I do not remember a time that all the drawers in the chest were ever all closed at the same time. If they would, It probably means I am brain dead.
