#TuesdayThoughts: Suspended animation.


I wonder if I should have more coffee. If I’m wondering, I probably should, right?


Just give me a second. For you, it will be like no time has passed at all.

See? And off it drips.

It’s a sunny day with a weak, anemic blue sky, and I think it’s finally warming up. It’s been a long time coming, this spring. Sometimes this past year seems like an eternity, and sometimes I can’t believe we’re here again already, defrosted from some form of suspended animation.

I’ve gone back to my pre-pandemic way of eating, treats as treats and not multiple-times-a-day diversions, normal portions, allowing myself to actually feel hungry between meals. And I can’t tell you how much better I feel.

In a way, I was like a zoo animal with food as the most interesting diversion. Now there’s a possible end in sight, maybe down the road, but still in sight.

And I have more energy, which is ironic to say after starting with making another cup of coffee but by now you know I am a woman of many complications.

I’m off. Have a great Tuesday.
