About The Buthidars

The Buthidars is a religion free Order where people of all ages, colours and creeds can come together as one all-inclusive group united towards seeing peace in the world.
You will hear ( from me ) about Hugs as I maintain you can’t hug with a weapon in your hands.
You will see the reason I think Hugs are important to us as people, ourselves and others.
You will I hope learn to understand why I ask people to leave religion at the door as they visit and if they still need it, to collect it at the door as they leave.

        Well done SoundEagle, there are few enough of us about with the hugs. Now I’m not sure if I should have a widget to play with or whether my widget is widget enough.
        Welcome to you and Happy Mid-October and Autumn colours.
        Hugs

      You’re in.
      Do you know, you just nmaade me read posts from 2014 that I’df forgotten I’d written, and words I wrote when my wife was still alive and encoraging me (It got me out from under her feet). I’m happy to see I still feel about people as I did then and kept some of the same followers too without scaring them off.

    I may be new to your blog but I don’t scare easily. If I see something I like in a blog and think I might want to follow it, I go to the earliest postings and behold the fountain. I’m sorry about your loss. In my experience, even a great loss doesn’t change an open heart. If it was there, it will remain. It may suffer blows from time to time, we all do, but it will be steadfast. Bisous et calins

    Memory can fog over from time to time. Especially if one has been under a cloud. Keep a watch out for the sun, it is out there. I believe you will find it.

        Since living here, I’ve developed a habit of taking early morning walks. I have many allergies but that seems to be the best time of day when the pollens have not woken up yet. I love walking to the other side of the village so I can watch the sunrise over the ancient chateau which is behind my house. The sunrise always seems filled with promise. xxx

        Sunrises can be magical just as they can be disappointing and I think our moods often decide that. I have enjoyed long walks in the past but now I live oon a hil and don’t have the breath to face that a at one end of the walk or the other going uphill will get me. I think I’d like to enjoy some of the sights from inside the chateau, like your house just in front of it.

    There are simple things we can do to kick-start the memory. One might start with pulling up those old posts (yours and others) and reading them out loud. By reading things out loud, we nurture the neural paths and they are key. Any physical activity combined with learning increases our retention

      You did realise I’m male didn’t you? We can’t do two things at the same time. It’s either physical activity or learning, not both. It was actually enjoyable to re-read some of the pieces from 2014. I’m hoping that’s when I moved the Buthidars to the new site anf left my other Blog with tales of my cat , my books and my life leading to to the events of 2013 in some kind of past.

        Yes. I realised that. We can surprise ourselves with what we can do if we try. My money is on you and if you start out small, you may surpise yourself. I have two cats. The divas, Colette and Simone, run the house and allow me to remain. They are often patient if I read aloud to them. I had a Cat blog for about a year but didn’t come up with enough feline photos to do what I wanted and was still doing the other two blogs so it has gone unattended for some time now. xxx

        Don’t put your money on me, I’ll disappoint you because I probably won’t start out small or start out at all. Heven help you with 2 cats though it’s good they allow you to share. With Oscar I was the slave while Julia could do no wrong. My alarm cat would wake me by lying across my face or scratching the soles of my feet all in order to be fed when he demanded or to have a window opened. He became more of a diva when his book came out.

        You have a love for music. Use that, celebrate it and sing. You know the words and it is an excellent neumonic device for strengthening those neural paths. Sing along with Tom and all of the others, even if it is only in the shower to begin with. Hugs

    You caught me out. I do sing along sometimes when I’m working. It may well be the reason I don’t have visitors which in turn may well be the reason I sing along.
    Happy Sunday.

    I wasn’t implying that you did need it. What I do believe is that it is an important part of our self-care. Back at the university, I participated and conducted studies of the application of music to the learning process and the results were impressive. It follows that if it can boost our learning ability, it can boost our memory.
    Hugs.

      As a part of our delf care I must be doing things right for a change. Rarely a day goes by without music and the memories evoked by it. Which reminds me I must prepare for a new Saturday Selection.
