I am just ... exhausted.
“Listen–are you breathing just a little, and calling it a life?”― Mary OliverI hate that there are times in my life where this quote seems SO appropriate. I am underwater at the moment. My brain keeps going, but the rest of me just wants to crawl under the covers and not emerge for days. But the world spins madly on, as they say, and so do I.

I can't believe this week is nearly over. I'm not quite sure where it went. My birthday is hurtling toward me at lightning speed, faster than ever before. And, to make things more earth-rattling, I just got some extremely unexpected news that has rocked me. Don't worry, no one is sick or dying, I just got another reminder from the universe that nothing lasts forever. Always a good lesson to keep in mind, right?
I wish I had more to say right now, but I don't. Fortunately, I've taken refuge this evening in a best friend and wonderful therapist: cooking. Spicy black bean soup & potatoes with fresh rosemary & garlic are being served right now, so with that I will say happy Thursday, almost Friday, and yay, almost weekend! ★
