ALCHEMY & HEALING

Thinking of putting together a custom first aid kit for your team or to toss in the back of the car for emergencies and camping? I list the essentials plus some other interesting items that you might include. After the generic item description, I usually include a brand that I have found particularly effective and possibly some notes)

If you get everything I recommend, then your kit will more resemble a backpack or a fully stocked medicine cabinet, but hey. I like being helpful. :)

"I have this theory about words. There's a thousand ways to say `Pass the salt.' It could mean, you know, `Can I have some salt?'; or it could mean, `I love you.'; It could mean `I'm very annoyed with you'; really, the list could go on and on.

 

 Words are little bombs, and they have a lot of energy inside them."

 
-Christopher Walken on acting

 

 

"Unable so lost
I can't find my way
Been searching, but I have never seen
A turning, a turning from deceit

Cause the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel

I can't understand myself anymore
But I m still feeling lonely
Feeling so unholy

Cause the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
But this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone

I'm fooling somebody
A faithless path to roam
Deceiving to breathe this secretly
This silence, a silence I can't bear

Cause the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
And this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone
And this loneliness,
It just won't leave me alone, ohh no

A lady of war
A lady of war"

"Revenge of the Number"

-Portishead
