I am still feeling lousy. It's day three. I am starting to feel the teeniest,
tiniest bit better but I have so little energy that I think I will head back to
bed. It's been a restless three days. I have coughed so hard at times that
I was afraid I might have cracked a rib. I know that it is not too serious
because I have never developed a fever, and realize that all I can really
do is wait it out a bit longer.
I took a couple of pictures in my kitchen hoping that photography
would work some kind of healing magic. For a couple of moments
it seemed to help, but now that the pics are loaded up on this post
I have come to the realization that finishing this post will be the
most amount of work I will accomplish today.
Despite being propped up on lots of pillows in bed, I have not been
able to turn my mind off. I have been reading all sorts of scholarly
articles on the web. I watched a lengthy YouTube lecture on the
economic future of China. Why you ask? I suppose it's because my
Daddy used to lecture at different universities about emerging Asian
markets, so in some strange way this particular lecture just struck
a chord with me.
Then I began to feel that I was having a mini existential crisis when I
started to examine all of the areas of my intellectual life that need a
boost. I can be very melodramatic at times ;-)
Mini crisis resolved. I have decided to take some non~credit courses
through MIT Open Courseware to keep my little gray cells from
shriveling and drying up. Now that I have that issue resolved,
I have decided to attack the really important issue ~ finding a
contractor to install the farmhouse sink that has been sitting in
my garage for the past two years!
Yes, farmhouse musings are much less traumatic :-)
