It’s Tuesday, so here is my Mom Update, if you’re interested. And on to Tuesday.
Today is overcast, it might rain. It’s supposed to do that around now. Spring flowers and all that.
Trying to be light in serious times is not the easiest thing to do. Here I chat about what’s on my mind and while I usually like to give you a little bit of fluff for your day, the weight of everything globally is definitely squashing down the fluff.
Well that’s a terrible metaphor.
But if you want more of my take the world and what’s happening in it, my twitter is a good place to go. Though most of you probably just came from there.
Make up my mind, am I right?!
Here. There. Everywhere.
But despite all that, my brain is in a floaty place. You only need to look at how it flitted through this post like a wordy bumble bee.
It’s a day that can’t decide if it’s cloudy or sunny, after a week of rainy gray days. It may rain today.
It may not.
I’m behind on everything, I feel like, this morning. I worked out late, and I’m starting to wonder if I want to keep going with the daily yoga.
I don’t know if it’s the particular sessions of this month’s Yoga With Adriene schedule or if I’m hitting a wall or if I’m tired of balancing it with my other exercise. Maybe I’m getting down to layers I don’t want to get to.
Yoga has a way of doing that.
Maybe it’s a big time investment I’m reconsidering.
Certainly not me, and I’m the one who should.
Well, that’s it for me this week. I hope you have an amazing Friday and a great weekend.
Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? Typed out. Given everything going on in my world and the big world, even raising the topic seems silly.
There are few things with a stronger siren call than a day entirely without stress. What would that be like? What would that look like?
A certain type of person may have gotten to this point and thought, “what are you talking about,” and if you are that kind of person, congratulations for being able to take everything in stride, for the things that get some of our hearts pounding rolling off you like water.
That has to be a great way to be.
But others are probably nodding along if they haven’t disappeared into their own fantasy of how a stress-free day would go. What it would include, what it would exclude.
Very optimistic for a Monday, I’m sure.
Oh well. All we can do is gear up, look forward and face the day.
I’m tired, but it’s more the weary kind of tired than the lack-of-sleep kind. Everywhere you look, things are a slog, and I say that knowing that thousands of miles away there are people who would love my slog over their life-or-death slog.
So I feel weird even raising it.
This awful war in Ukraine, this unprovoked aggression from putin, really illustrates how some people are only the illusion of evolved. He’s nothing more than one of our way, way, way back primate ancestors, intent on domination.
With much deadlier weapons.
Here we are in this 21st century, more the future than people could have imagined and we still have people who can’t just leave other people alone.
How weird is that?
How does the future get better if we don’t?
Maybe a bummer of a note to leave you on for a Friday, but here we are.
Either way, have a great day and a great weekend, if both of those things are possible.
