Flowers For Algernon

Erysium Cheiri – “Wall flower”

emmenagogue, Diuretic and TOXIC

has a similar effect on a failing heart as digitalis / foxglove

Flowers For Algernon is a first short story from the late fifties with the novel appearing mid-sixties written by Daniel Keyes.  It is amusing that it succeeds because the author was pressured to make it end happy and refused in both instances of the story and book .  It was part of the books in rotation of my high school like, aldus huxley’s a brave new world, a raison in the sun and to kill a mockingbird.

it is intriguing to me how much of our expression are accurate or NOT when seen through a lens of what things fully are.  a “wallflower” is a person not wishing to get in the middle of the part – preferring the edges – yet the plant if it doesn’t kill you is possibly an abortive for when someone had a little too much social 😀

however it was the first of things that came up when looking up omega nine fatty acids- I am on a bit of a kick about this and that being good for you so was dimly i point out aware that there is omega three fatty acids also omegas six and nine, we nutrtionally seem to get plenty of omega 3’s but what are the six and nines?  whoops, in this particular case, not very good for you in a non “controlled substance situation i.e. get a doctor to work with this one as there is nothing wrong with saving an ailing heart but killing off yourself by poisoning is a tad defeatist of that point.


but think now, an ailing heart has a large dose of wallflower and dies? or is poisoned?  what fun!… in a non lethal literally way in this here Halloween  season of ghoulishness 😀    ooops too much wall flower…hammy death scene…  oops too much wallflower….envisiona before and after of someone pregnant then not….and shh it, i’m not advocating you express beliefs on pro life or pro choice- as obviously a wall flower is a natural substance among many that are natural abortive or even god who created all things created an abortive plant…this is NOT stating it was here for that purpose be not clever with me or clubbing about what just is.  I’m here for the lightening from blasphemies.  but am I? nah, just enjoying Halloween :D…from the fringes. 😉
