Been a Little Down Recently

Click to enlarge.

Going on vacation—sort of. I keep looking at that text and thinking, “I should have written ‘sort of.’”

It will be lovely. Larry will hike to exhaustion everyday and I will get to see the ocean and beloved people. But I do feel my limits afresh when I go away from my small domestic haunt. In that way, it isn’t exactly a vacation for me because I can’t get away from my trouble. And without my own space and set-up I am actually more limited there (at Larry’s family’s summer cottage on the coast of Maine) than here.

It will be lovely, though, it will. I’m going to think of it as a meditation retreat. I’m taking a few pieces of writing to work on, some long neglected reading, paper and pens for cartooning, and the intention to be present and open. The latter will be my primary occupation.


  1. Ah. I know how difficult "vacations" can be. Hugs.

  2. Ugh. Yesterday I had a flash of energy and enthusiasm. I cleaned the living room. I picked up all the junk. I organized. I vacuumed. Then I crashed. And I was SO MAD. I just wanted the WHOLE HOUSE to be clean. And I felt so down all evening.
