Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

Perspective - February 8, 2020

Brian had to work today which meant I could have the TV alllllll to myself, a rare treat. Mostly, I don't watch much television, but I make up for it when I find a new show and swallow it whole. It was delightful to watch all TEN episodes of Locke & Key on the couch by myself. Between each episode I  did a chore - make dough, wash clothes, fold clothes,  change sheets, bake pizza. I love good stories - they make me feel so alive. 

The same goes for learning something I've never thought of before.  It doesn't happen often. If it did, it wouldn't be as special  - a thought I'm not sure I agree with now that I think about it. I wish I could learn something new all the time. Maybe it's the degree or depth of the learning.  Today I heard about something new, something  I've not thought of before. For a few hours (even during the binge-fest), I felt aware of something bigger than me. I hope these thoughts stay with me. Perspective shifts are earth-shaking.
