What a weekend – – There have been many challenges:
> I’m recovering from my WYD hangover. I wake every morning at 7:30am Madrid time… which is nice but it is also 1:30am Baltimore time. My last few days have involved me with a head cold and a zombie-ish pallor and nature.
> Hurricane Irene came and went but the residual affects were left behind. Power went out at my place at 5:00am-ish Sunday morning and has remained out for over 48 hours. I found projects to do during the day, but off-kilter sleep and darkness are not a happy marriage. My dream life, which is usually non-existent, has kicked in with convoluted disturbing scenarios that leave me restless wondering what the heck triggered that sub-conscious thought??? (Are these called nightmares?)
> I’ve been aware of a change-over brewing atop the ArchBalt since before the storm really kicked in.
And, no, I don’t know what the future brings… But, it certainly will be interesting.
> There is a stack of stuff to do that would task me while fully alert and healthy.
I feel as if things are just a little suck-y in my tightly wound universe right now, but am clinging onto Hope with all that I can. Usually, I don’t spend time personally sharing (especially after a post on vulnerability and over-sharing), but I wanted you to know that if you are feeling the same way, then we’ve both been there.
Here’s good news:
> You can see the stars at night much better when every light is out in your neighborhood.
> I’ve come to realize how much time is wasted on the internet and television when, like, ya’know, I’ve got power.
> Sunrise is so very much sweeter when it breaks the darkness.
Know that you are in my prayers during these times and I ask that you include me in yours. (and, if you want to direct a few towards the crews of Baltimore Gas and Eclectic, that would be cool as well.)
