A DEDICATION

This is dedicated to those of us who had T1DM visited upon us as children and who still were able to feel the Magic within our world.......
Listen to the words with your Heart and watch the video with your Soul

Barry - thanks for that dedication! Words are so insufficient. Nothing I can possibly write can get across that which I feel. Thank you Barry! Thank you for being out there......

Thank you, BetterCell, for posting that video. I started to weep about half way through the song. Something about the images along with the music--that vision of going backwards, undoing the past or going back in time, back to innocence, and the symbols they use in the video--very powerful.

I forgot about that song, but I used to love it. Goosebumps. It hit me at that visceral core level at the right time where I was able to receive the message. I thank you for the trip, returning to innocence.

Thanks for the video, great imagery.

I think a lot of people see Type 1 as a curse instead of seeing the blessings that are wrapped up inside of it.

BetterCell said...

There are many ways of "talking" and telling those of their feelings. Thank you for listening Chrissie,
I am glad to having had taken the same trip with you Amylia. Thank you for being on the boat with me.
It is often hard to see a full glass of water when it is half filled. Is that you on the bike Bernard?

Donna said...

Very nice. Thanks for sharing.

BetterCell said...

Those of us with T1DM are all on this Boat together Donna where upon reaching the other Island we will be able to once again "Return to Innocence."

Chrissie in Belgium said...

You are absolutely right, Barry. Actually I think talking with words rarely expresses a thought or an emotion as well as music or a visual picture.

BetterCell said...

Chrissie......It also depends on how close the words are to the
feelings/emotions that they are trying to express.
For some people it is one and the same for others, a better way would
be through music, graphics, art, poetry, movie.

But with words you go around and around and around maybe getting clost to your goal, what you want to get across. With art or music it hits you right away - smack! It it moves yoor it doesn't!

BetterCell said...

The Japanese during the 17th century Chrissie were very good at being able to covey feeling through a very small amount of words comprising of only three sentences with the use of Haiku.
.......There are times when words are not necessary to convey a feeling or create one as well.
I think that this is one of those times as you say,"it hits you right away - smack!"

Minnesota Nice said...

That was very touching, Barry.
When the scenes started to play backwards, I was reminded of that I.S. Eliot quote about not ceasing our explorations until we arrive at the place we started, and to know it for the first time.

BetterCell said...

Hi Kathy......I am sure that many of us can go back and re-visit many of our experiences.
Whether it was our first taste of a tuna fish salad sandwich, a fist kiss, the first experience of feeling love for another person........so many different kinds of things.
Let us not forget the experience in first being diagnosed with having Diabetes.......for me at that tender young age, I had no idea of "what I was getting myself into." lol

HOLA BARRY
TU ESPAÑOL SE ENTIENDE PERFECTAMENTE.
GRACIAS POR COMUNICARTE CON MI HIJA, ELLA CUMPLE EL 29 DE JULIO 9 AÑOS.
Y ESTA CRECIENDO MUY BIEN.
HACE UNA VIDA NORMAL, TIENE AMIGOS Y DISFRUTA LA VIDA DE UNA CHICA DE SU EDAD.
NOSOTROS HEMOS APRENDIDO MUCHO DE LA ENFERMEDAD Y TRATAMOS QUE NO AFECTE SU VIDA.
ELLA HACE SUS GLICEMIAS 5 A 6 VECES AL DIA.
SE INYECTA LANTUS EN LAS MAÑANAS Y NOCHE Y LA ULTRA RAPIDA EN CADA COMIDA DEPENDIENDO DE SUS NIVELES DE GLICEMIA.
LO MAS PREOCUPANTE SON SUS NIVELES DE HEMOGLOBINA QUE DAN RANGOS DE 8 A 9.
LA DOCTORA DICE QUE ESTAN ALTOS Y ES NECESARIO BAJARLOS.
SE HAN AUMENTADO LOS NIVELES DE LANTUS Y TAMBIEN LA ULTRA RAPIDA PARA VER COMO REACCIONA.
ESTA SERA UNA PREOCUPACION PARA SIEMPRE.
ESPERO QUE TU TE ENCUENTRES MUY BIEN DE SALUD
ES MUY GRATO SALUDARTE.
SALUDOS CORDIALES

Un dia nosotros Familias puedan decir:
"NO MAS DIABETES AHORA."
