And How Are You?

I sent the following in a note to a friend. Not that she can fix it, but she’s empathetic, and that will have to do for comfort.

Lately I feel I am a Riedel wine glass, and the world is a soprano singing a note that is nearly unbearable.

I want, somehow, to be removed from it, wrapped gently in a soft cloth, and put away someplace safe and quiet.

That’s not going to happen, but I wanted to mention it because I feel you’ll understand.

My best option is to slow down, drop agendas, and breathe.

That’s my answer for today. And you?

    Sorry to hear it, dear. Try to remember what’s most important – people. Everything else can wait.

    Indeed. The day went so much better than I’d thought. I just decided there was nothing needing action at a certain time, slowed down, focused on Claire and what we needed at the moment. Turned out to be a good day in the end. Still fragile, but this strategy helps.
