I don't know about you, but the past week has left me with a knot of dread in my gut. There has been a lot of utter bullshitbeing shoved in our faces, invoking feelings of rage and dismay and I am trying to figure how to be in this reality. It's scary and strange and leaves me feeling a little crazy. Add that feeling to a little mid winter blues.... I am not exactly of sound mind these days. (Ha, have I ever been?)
But there was a lot of good things. Little simple things like making pizza with the littles or walking through ice covered trees at 5 in the morning. New doors, a head of messy hair, a hint of blue sky. My little bits of happiness that really make me appreciate all the good that I have in my life.
And today, well I need to decompress my brain. I am going to take it slightly easy with work and do a news detox. No NPR. No NY Times. Do a little cleaning then chill. A good book, lots of hot beverages, a walk in the woods, some watercolor paints. The simple things to clear my head. You should do the same.
