Sigh. Life is getting back into it's ordinary routine. I am definitely not complaining. Lots of emotional and physical ups and downs since Good Friday have left me content with a little mundane tedium. Lots of time feeling under the weather has left me ready to hit the treadmill and maybe tackle a weight or two. Last weekend, while filled with joy and happiness, was quite a strain on my energy reserves while dealing with the flu. While we were in South Bend I was as high as a kite. The next couple of days were a compilation of an emotional roller coaster run amok and the last vestiges of a long bout of flu holding on for dear life.
I took yesterday a bit easy and found my way back into my studio after almost three weeks. Paint and paper, glue and crayons. Funny, it's the simplest of life's bounty that bring me REAL pleasure. Family. Friends. Nature. Making anything. Reading. And of course, Music. Sometimes a forced respite from these joys is all it takes to bring them back into focus with extraordinary clarity. That's how I feel today. Fresh and new. Reborn. Wishing you all a beautiful Spring day wherever you find yourself!
