Eternal Sunshine of the Narcissist’s Mind

image by artist Peter Strain

In the film Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, the main character decides to have his memories of his ex erased. These included ALL memories, good and bad. Did he once love her? Absolutely. When she broke it off with him though, the pain was too great to bear and he decides to erase her altogether.  (That was after he found out she had done it first)

The narc has some of that ability without the freaky procedure we saw administered in the film. Just to be clear, this film is not about narcissism. It’s a quirky, bizarre love story. It’s the spotless mind reference that has a likeness to what little can be understood of the narcissist’s brain function. Continue reading “Eternal Sunshine of the Narcissist’s Mind”

Not long ago, the word Chakra was foreign to me. How did it come up? Well, the store I worked in sold jewelry including troll beads. (That’s how my bead addiction started). What do troll beads have to do with the Chakras? There is a troll bead to represent each Chakra. I remember Continue reading “Cheat Sheet On Chakra Healing”

The Icing On The Cake-Excerpt

So, we’re switching it up here at The great Escape Blog and throwing in some fiction. I’ve been working on a short story collection titled The Icing On the Cake. Each story features a marriage in trouble or a divorce under way.  Before you sigh and tell me ‘that sounds depressing…’, I wrote a few for the romantics about finding love unexpectedly after divorce.

Divorce Plural Style

Well, that was easy. Kody and Meri pressed the easy button and voila, they’re divorced. I guess when you have four wives divorcing one isn’t a big loss. In the case of TLC’s Sister Wives, there is no loss at all for Kody. He and Meri will remain “close”. She’s still a Sister Wife, just not legally married to Kody after 25 years of putting up with his other 15 children, and multiple wives. Continue reading “Divorce Plural Style”
