by Timothy Millson
Head Rush by Timothy Millson is a collection of poetic prose encompassing his oft times scattered perspective on life, as noted in his opening statement: "I reserve the right to become completely and utterly insane."
The medical term for 'Head Rush' is orthostatic hypotension, which is a significant decrease in blood flow to the brain upon standing. This drop in pressure causes lightheadedness and dizziness, sometimes to the point of fainting. There can be many reasons for this occurrencemedication or a number of medical conditions.
In the author's case, this situation seems to occur due to the swirling of thoughts in his head, which sometimes seem to overwhelm him. To quote the author, "I have thinker's block.
This thought-provoking work depicts the turmoil, "between the simplicity of life and the complexity of living, between the contemplation of truth and the confusion of meanings, the only difference being your point of view"
