I was out mowing the overgrown lawn at around 6:00 pm when I staro started getting some migraine symptoms --- first a flickering to the right of my line of sight which interrupted my vision --- not quite a plind blind spot but an interrruption and a distraction --- got worse went inside to eat a nurofen --- seemed no worse --- had to finish the lawn any way --- very long --- straggly shoots seeding very untidy --- had to finish it now anyway --- continued cutting sawn --- filough feeling of dislocatiion, slightly spacy feeling --- flickering no longer there --- finished back lawn and once bother with the fronth front --- but it away --- starting writing --- now lifth side of my head starting to hurt. Having difficulting writing what I want to say (though inside my head it is ok. Difficulty is tranfering to the page).

My idea of | now I can’t even put ideas inside my head very isoly --- very strange that I cant say what I want to say!

Anyway, suggest not poem but pi um the other thing.

Will go and lye down now.
