And so, after that last post, I mellowed out a bit. Okay, first I had a meltdown and vented about all the things that are stressing me out to Chris. And then I mellowed out. I slowed down.
I stayed home.
I put my hair into bobbly pigtails.
I took a long, hot bath.
I watched the water swirl down the drain.
I stared at familiar objects from unfamiliar angles, and ran my fingers along different surfaces, to study their textures.
I sat in silence.
I made faces at myself in the mirror.
I made a cup of tea.
I put on a Cat Stevens record.
I put in a load of laundry. (Somehow, that helped. Control over a small space?)
And now, after emptying out my brain for a while, I'm ready to finish this book and prepare for tomorrow's meetings.
