Cocoon is my word of the week. It keeps coming to mind at various moments.
What do we associate with cocoon?
It protects whilst something develops. I feel that my medication and online support does this for me.
I love choosing a word of the week because then I go off and find out more about it. I did not know it was related to spiders and military equipment for example.
My Mum left school at the age of 12 and took on her own literacy education learning words from the Reader’s Digest every week.
Apparently a star can be hidden in a cocoon of dust. I think of all the bloggers I know who emerged and got valued for the first time in years when they became blogging stars in their own right.
Baby it is cold outside so I am often wrapped in blankets, a duvet or a patchwork quilt often joined by my super hot water bottle dog.
I feel my mind is strong these days so disturbing realities don’t shipwreck me. Either I rise about those realities or start to change them and my own.
I love that song “There’s a place for us somewhere” and now I know there is a place for me and that feels good. I quite like my cocoons.
