That is how I feel.


I did swim for fifty-one minutes today - doing my version of individual medley (I throw in the elementary backstroke instead of the butterfly). That felt pretty good.

I read a very interesting book on illness.

I sat in the sun.

But still, and all, today I just felt flat.

We went to the night market.

It was crowded, but manageable.

I did buy a very cute knitting project bag.

I did run into a student I had taught for five years. She introduced me to someone as her second mom.

The music?

Not so good.

We went to another night concert.

The music?

Equally, not so good.

The food was ok.

The popcorn was ok.

The sour keys were ok.

The Mexican coke was pretty good.

(Coca Cola you guys.....sheesh!)

I woke up today not wanting to do anything or see anybody.

I think I am going to bed in the same frame of mind.

I kind of want to go to the folk festival tomorrow, but I am afraid to spend all that money, drive all that way, navigate the crowds and still feel flat.

That would be silly.

Here's hoping

"the sun'll come up tomorrow,

Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow

There'll be sun."


  1. Oh I do hope you feel better tomorrow and can enjoy the festival.

  2. Congratulations on doing everything anyway and smiling through the fog. It proves how perfectly 3-dimensional you are. Xx

    1. ps.... If you make it to the folk festival, I hope you have the energy to sing along. Sour keys and popcorn are excellent medicine, but singing definitely assists in puffing flat people back up.

    1. it was. I did get to the folk festival today - and I did sing along a little. It was a beautiful day - now I am waiting for the marinade to take so I can bbq some lamb kebabs!

  4. Reminds me of the discussions I have with my psych about whether I feel alive or not. this is recurrent because there are a lot of days where I feel flat. I use the exact same word as you.


I look forward to reading the comments. It makes me feel like I am not jut posting into the void.
