I’m beyond exhausted. My last two posts for Psychology Today delved deep. The latest took me a week to write. I kept thinking that some people would have a book written in that time.
The editors chose both as “essential reads” and yes I am proud.
I looked up “lucky” foods and on New Years Eve made salmon, kale, collard greens, spinach and blacked eye peas for dinner. Only one of those foods isn’t an everyday food for me so it was a little disappointing. Until I realized that means I eat for luck every day. And I am very lucky. I get to walk five miles on the beach every day except on days like yesterday when I swear it was raining things, not just rain. The air was filled with dirt, leaves and more. I’ve never seen a rain like that before.
On Saturday night we had torrential lightening. It was incredibly beautiful and yes I felt lucky to see it. Though old friend who called sorry I was so distant. Writing non stop for weeks with massive rain coming–makes me want to curl up on a couch or daybed and wait for the lightening. Then I run from room to room to see where the best lightening’s coming from.
I bought a three person swing with cushions and cover at Kroger. Eldon put it together. It’s on the downstairs deck and I can spend endless hours swinging as fast as I can. Well not endless hours as it makes me dizzy but in a good way. Then I let myself fall asleep on it. Had to force myself inside when it began raining because as much as I love watching lightening I prefer to be indoors.
I usually walk with a friend and we end up at one of North Myrtle’s few beach bar/restaurants. It has live music–not shag music usually–and I finally feel as if I’m in a real tropical beach town.
All this is a long way of saying I put copies of all the sentences, paragraphs, pages I don’t use in my PT articles here. A friend–the one I was accidentally and regrettably aloof to on Saturday is archiving Courting. When I was going through the posts I put in a Blogger blog I couldn’t believe some of the lines I have come up with.
And now there’s a swing I haven’t been on in a couple of hours. I think I’m turning my house into an amusement park for me.
