Day 15 - Abandoning the little girl (Back from a day off)


Oct 25, 2010

Yep - I skipped day 14. I slept for about twelve hours awoke for five and slept for another twelve while nursing a really wretched and dizzying sinus infection which rendered my eyes blurry, my mind empty and I have not been able to kick out its presence for ten days. Probably born of a night with excessive, unlikely and not customary cigarettes that matched a bright red dress and some deliciously bad decisions. And after a true day off, I went to work with bright eyes and a slightly more engaged spring to my step after sleep.

But sometimes, I will not be creative, and sometimes I will not be able to come up with the extraordinary - or even reflective ordinary. Sometimes we all need to rest and sometimes we all need to be a bit quiet.

Every once in a while our bodies will give out and sometimes a fractured neck and rusty bones will ache with rain, ache with wind, and we will find comfort curled up in bed and that does not make us weak.
