Put All Questions and To-Dos Aside
Complete blank-minded lethargy is my goal for today. (I have a cold and I'm trying to at least wring some wisdom out of the experience of staying home for a day.)
So far, I haven't managed blank mind. Done pretty well on lethargy. Also making a fine showing on pessimism, theatrical suffering, and littering the area around my sofa.
If I let the usual projects into my head, then they're all in trouble. How was it ever possible that anyone could write Seabiscuit while downed by chronic fatigue? I can't imagine it. The writer should have been morosely obsessing.
Face hurts, kidneys tired. Eyes burn.
Must keep dark thoughts out of my head.
Started reading a new novel off my stack (finished the Anita Brookner late last night, and late was probably a mistake.) Chucked today's book; didn't hold me. Soon to rouse the energy to reach for another one.
Perhaps having a cold will increase my empathy with people who are sick a lot.
I'm not optimistic about that.
Got a whole lot to do tomorrow. But I will NOT think ahead.
