i918 was the year the "Spanish Flu" infected a significant portion of the population and killed, maybe three percent. maybe five percent, maybe who knows how many of us. I lost relatives; it is very likely you did also. This years version has left me exhausted and disoriented; and the end is yet nowhere in sight.
"Chasing shadows on the wall:
that don't bother me at alll.
Playing solitaire till dawn
with a deck of fifty-one.
Smoking cigarettes and watching Kaptain Kangaroo --
Don't bug me,
I've got plenty to do,"
These misquoted lyrics are an appropriately Blakean reflection of of my mood this past month, It is as positive as it is negattive. When i feel better, the 'hellish" aspects of the "marriage" will subside. When that happens, i will let you knowl
Equanimity, loving kindness, compassion, and joy to all.
