Balance … the back story…

Why is the story about the high school balance beam important… easy… Alabama….

Before Texas, I had zero memory issues… and I mean zero, and some of those memories have been pushing their way into my world…. one of those memories… about 1965, give or take a year… 

I am a total tomboy… love playing with all the tonka type toys, build forts, dig caves and of course… do stupid dare-devil crap…

There were twin boys I always played with… near their house and behind the trailer park, was the remnants of a concrete building with long walkway pylons and of course it was about 10 feet off the ground with rebar sticking up out of the old factory floor and other dangers… 

So one of the stupid things we did, was dare each other to walk the plank we called it, along the walls of that old building… my heart just picked up speed, as if I was doing it all over again… the memory is that fresh… love this crazy brain…

I did it… I was terrified and I was exhilarated… because I proved I wasn’t scared… why is this sooooooo important…. BALANCE!!!

I never once had an issue with balance until Big Springs, Texas…. after Margie died… my right temporal lobe was so screwed up, my left side became weak and it showed within a year of our getting to Japan… and the other part of this aha moment…

My memories of Japan, some of them have come back…. Now do I expect pleasant memories outside the home to show up… yea, I hope so… there are people I would like to remember…. but now you get why balance in high school, the bread crumb memory I hung onto, had a purpose…

I Remember… Margie….

Margie was born into a typical christian military family... Her story is anything but typical... Domestic violence, rape, attempted murder and all done while my dad served in the U. S. Air Force and they buried the truth... then my own children impacted by Air Force cover up while I am active duty.... Rape, Attempted murder, domestic violence and discrimination in the name of the United States Government... and it is still happening as I write... just look at Trump, Kavanaugh and Thomas.... Circle of Silence is no more....
