Badger’s Hexastitch

I think I missed Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday prompt deadline for the synonyms for loose and tight. I used relaxed and tense to describe various tension levels of how I hold the hook. I learned about a new type of poem called the Badger’s Hexastitch! What a interesting name! It is a fun variation of the Crapsey Cinquain invented by out own Badger. It simply expands the cinquain to another line and 2 more syllables.
Badger’s Hexastitch is:

  • a poem in 6 lines.
  • syllabic, 2-4-6-6-4-2.
  • unrhymed, optional rising and falling end-words.

Linda G Hill – Nerve

Plexus Nerve

Last year, a friend reached out to me to share Plexus products and share some testimonials. Impressed with her demo I decided to check it out and do more research. Interested in improving my health during the pandemic, I started to use the Triplex combo which has helped me curb a lot of sicknesses that I get from allergies, colds, and the flu.

There is another Plexus product called Nerve:

  1. WOW – you’re having such fun during the pandemic, way to go. Having done a bit of research myself during the pandemic, I’ve found it best to only take supplements that don’t have a lot of fillers or to just eat whole foods instead. By changing those two aspects, inflammation and illnesses have essentially gone away, not sure if it’s those efforts or just plain luck? Have you’ve looked into how the ‘other ingredients’ are harmful to us, i.e., rice flour, magnesium stearate, etc.?

    • Thank you so much for your feedback! I’ll never forget an episode on a crime show where a woman died from drinking far more supplements than eating real food. Whole food is definitely preferred! I’ll definitely look into any dangers of the ingredients that you mentioned! 🙂
