New Neural Pathways – Sign the Petition


villa

The post below, ‘Never Knowingly Nimby-ed Here‘ is about the struggle to decide whether or not to get involved in taking action, the dilemmas I faced in making such a decision. I think taking action calls for thoughtfulness, decision making based on that and then an ongoing commitment in spite of outstanding commitments.

Today I was speaking to a stroke survivor. Our meeting was about Peer Support. He was telling me in some ways his life is much better, he knows more, he recalls more, his memory is sharper. He said when is life changed he started making new neural pathways and this is how he survived.

This gave me the opportunity to celebrate doing something new today and therefore firing new neural pathways. Imagine. All the petitions i’ve ever signed. All the causes I’ve ever backed and I’ve never ever done my own petition. Well I have now.

We need support comrades. If you read this please sign the petition.
