Gringo Hangs Ten

Actually going back a couple of years with this photo of Trailer dog. This is at Anastasia Island, FL, USA. The title and song are by Miles Corbin.

Your kindness, comments, Faves and group invites are very appreciated !
I only post to groups by your invitation šŸ¢
From one photo. Image, textures and digital painting by me, Tom.

It just means the world to me that some of my Flickr friends have been concerned about me because I went missing from Flickr. Thanks šŸ™!!! I have ongoing brain troubles because I am constantly dealing with damage from a Traumatic Brain Injury. I have setbacks that are part of this process of healing. I had a 2 week + episode that disabled me almost totally. One of the drugs that I take for seizures was increased and it actually turned toxic. Trailer dog took great care of me. He’s actually trained to to help me get up and keep me moving. Now, I can tell that I am getting to the other side of this episode. And back to the beach where true healing takes place for me.
I know that we all have our "life issues". So, I don’t really dwell on my problems much. This TBI has been more of a life changing gift than a burden to me. I have to live by the Grace and mercy of God. Sometimes He will take you a on stroll through Hell, though.
Makes for good Art, though, lol.
With much Love, Tom (and Trailer šŸ¶)

Ok, update Jan 21, 2019. Iā€™ve been forcing myself to catch upon the very kind and gracious invites which I have missed for some reason or another.
Now, also Iā€™m seeing also some very kind comments, Prayers and wishes for healing. Guess what, all of this has helped me heal ! I am happy to report that I am going into a strange period of being a semi functional Human being, hehe. After 6 years of being totally broken and in a deep moody fog ! Anyone who has delt with a long term Traumatic Brain Injury or a coma would know that when you come back to life and reality, you have to deal with 2 versions of your self. The ā€œoldā€ self and the ā€œnewā€ self. Sounds crazy, but itā€™s true. Now that Iā€™m becoming able to act like I belong to the human race, I donā€™t recognize the mechanical and people skills that the ā€œoldā€ me had ! So itā€™s a little scary to have these gifts reappear. But I love them and accept them wholeheartedly ! My immediate family has recognized this happening to me. They wish the ā€œoldā€ me would return. But having been in therapy for 5 years, I know that the ā€œoldā€ will not return. And a brand new (and way older in years) Man has come to Life !
Keep Praying, dear friends ! Hoping and wishing ! As I do for all of my Flickr friends as I enjoy your works !

I have a newer post Called ā€œComing Back to Lifeā€ which is a celebration of sorts of healing and being able to deal with life.
I have so much personal loss, materially and with friendships. Your friends desert you after 2 or 3 months of deep sickness. 2 of my closet friends died during my mental lapse. My wife and 3 step sons completely abandoned me. Yada, yada, yada. Makes for a great country song, lol. Anyway, starting from scratch now and Iā€™m coming back to life !

Flickr=Love šŸ˜ŽšŸššŸ¶ Itā€™s True ! Thanks for standing by me and TrailerDog !
