A creative non-fiction, multi-media, work in progress, here is FACING THE MOON table of contents: cover art, titles & sub-titles: (full cover art viewable only after each video posted here is activated.)


A self/social inquiry with universal themes, the work’s initial prompt was my current mobility challenge and all implications therein…including learning about neural circuitry looping…an alarm switch that won’t turn off…triggering chronic pain that is not structural, not due to tissue pathology, and that all pain is generated by brain signals to the nervous system, regardless of specific cause.

Thank you, in advance, for viewing and responding.

*NOTE: The optimum way to view these videos is by way of a screen larger than a cell phone…many of the illustrations are too subtle to show, in full, on a phone screen…these pieces are designed in a 1080 x 1920 frame. Plus, adequate speakers will make the best of the songs & sound effects. AND, if the “on” arrow jams/loops when starting each video, re-load the page or “x” out and begin again…sorry for any inconvenience.

NEWS!

There is a follow-up to this video series in the form of a book I am currently writing, since producing this Facing the Moon video series:

Giving Love the Last Word: an emotion literate’s lexicon

A brand new collection of four-line poetic meditations, associated with a diverse array of single-word (like in a dictionary)  “action verbs”… my generative work and process of learning new ways to handle my fear and anxiety survival-brain responses with love reminders through multiple pathways continues…⎈

❣️Again, thanks for your interest and responses, in advance.

gratefully,
