Back to the grind of getting up early, albeit an hour later than what we were sticking to for about six weeks up until the middle of last week. Yesterday saw W. complaining about the weather. He will easily disparage it if it involves too extreme a state (snow storms, say, or crushing heat and […]

The worry factor, that’s what it is, what I’ll call it. I realized during meditation this morning – I’m on the “Appreciation” pack – that it’s hard for me to sink into a feeling of appreciation at the moment because worry intrudes. I sit at my desk (in my Capisco chair by HAG, which is […]

What a great thing it is to sleep. I really need to do more of it. But unlike “morning people,” my best sleep is in the morning hours, after I’ve battled a night of darkness and restless dreams, slaying all the dragons. Only then, when the sun is truly up and looking out over my […]

It’s the weekend, no rushing to get out of the house, which means I do the meditation –> writing (morning pages) in this order. On weekdays I do the morning pages first, then run around, getting out of the house with W. (even if I didn’t walk with him, I’d be “on call” to drive […]

Not much tilt-a-world effect today, although the trees do appear to be even taller than yesterday; just the same headache that’s been hanging around for about five days, a kind of sinus-y, low grade annoyance. And a complete blanket of misty cloud cover, solid, impenetrable, as far as the eye can see. Welcome, Memorial Day […]

When I sat down at my desk just now and looked across it through the window, I thought for a moment the world had tilted. I’ve written before about the trash maples extending their reach into my field of vision. This morning it seemed they had done so by another meter or so in increased […]

If anything I write should ever interest readers – and any reader is a future reader, interpreting words written in the past (which once was a present, but let’s not get too complicated) – it will be because somehow it touches on common ground, on something identifiable …and shared. Sometimes that’s a hard pill to […]

Today I feel like I should write in big loopy letters, enlarge my handwriting beyond its usual size, make it gigantic in fact, so I could fill three pages in no time. I am comatose. While I haven’t drunk anything alcoholic since Saturday, I feel hung over. Really hung over. And it’s purely from getting […]

I went to Facebook again for the first time in quite a while. One of the first posts I saw was by A.W., posted just four hours earlier: a photo of a baby, and an announcement of the birth of his and H.’s newborn son, B., who had arrived on Wednesday May 16. Also on […]

Glorious weather – yesterday, and now again today. Tomorrow will change – rain, colder, etc. But today will be pleasant. I didn’t manage to sleep through the night, though. Woke up thirsty at 3:30a.m., and tried to ignore it. But after another twenty minutes or so, I capitulated and got up to get some water. […]
