Music:Don't Think I Don't Think About it - Darrius Rucker
Well, we had the first day of spring this week -- and true to form it sort of snowed. It was a cold wet day, and for a moment in the afternoon, big-ass wet flakes of snow fell in the rain. But on the bright side, the Daffodils are starting to bloom at the Capitol, and the countdown clock shows 31 days - one month -- left in the session.
It's been a very tough week emotionally -- I've had some health issues and a scare earlier this week when a pinched nerve was so bad I had to go to the ER, who, after tests for a stroke, a heart attack, and other malady's, sent me home saying it was all in my head and there was nothing physically wrong with me. I suppose it was all in my head -- as it felt like someone was drilling into the base of my skull. After talking with a massage therapist, she said my pain was caused by how I "carry my stress". So an hour after that after a bruising massage, while I felt better -- I still have no solution to the stress or how I "carry" it. The scary part though is feeling very alone sitting by myself in the ER, wired up to things, worried if I was going to walk out or not, and not having my cell phone to even let anyone know where I was. None the less, in the long run I'm in good health physically -- my mental state is another story, and it appears to be manifesting itself in funny ways. Well, a month to go, and maybe after that I can get out on the highway and clear my head and evaluate what roads my life will take.
