And yet... I fell ill mid-weekend. I can't remember the last time I rode this roller coaster of crap -- I think I have a lighter version of the same flu I recovered from more than a week ago. For some perspective on this, the last time I was really ill I also fell on a rainy sidewalk and tore up my knee -- the knee is still healing right now, still has a scab on it, and I'm sick again.
It's unusual for me, such a slow-down. That paired with other recent events and visions makes me wonder if the message here isn't exactly that -- Slow Down -- pay attention, to yourself and to others, to the world around. If so, my impulse is to resent such a thing -- work was, you guessed it, kind of crazy again this week with food shelf traffic and our other admin person out with a sick child. I was really frayed by Friday. What can I do?
On the bright side -- hmm. I'm glad things aren't worse. I might have to take a day off soon, though tomorrow isn't the day to do it. I desperately need to finish my current art project, and get it off my plate -- I'd love to try something new.
I'll have something more insightful to say tomorrow, maybe. Thanks for putting up with my whining...
