A new number, a new trip around the sun. A shitty summer. Hung on by the skin of my teeth. Still hanging on. Feverishly packing and looking for rental houses, among other life challenges. I choose not to talk personal personal details here, this is public after all. But, it will all smooth over in time. Right now is pure chaos, however.
My 30s were full of amazing life events and milestones and challenges overcome. I have a feeling my 40s will offer new versions of these things. My health is not back 100%, still battling some instability due to migraine vertigo issues, but I am at the very least not as acute as I was, and heading in the right direction, generally speaking.
Today, I’m getting flooded with love and messages via text, FB, WP, and it’s all very lovely. Multiple friends have offered to take me to lunch. I have turned them all down.
I am craving silence and solitude.
It’s an overcast day. I’m sitting with my favorite chai at my favorite cafe, and will probably go for a walk to clear my mind, get some exercise.
And then…back to packing and house hunting.
I think I will plan to make up for my birthday later with a dinner out with friends and loved ones. I had dreamed of celebrating in Italy. That will have to wait.
I’m feeling a bit at a loss for poetry today…I’ve been so preoccupied mentally. But, I’ll see what I can do later.
Thank you for being awesome, I truly appreciate all of you!
