Random thoughts before I hit the sack…
My voice may not agree, but my body feels like it is getting better. (On the other side of the coin, at least i am sounding less like Darth Vadar every day. “Luke, I am your father…”)
One of the better things about being sick is the perspective it puts you in. Instead of being bitter and grumpy, you come back with kinda a relieved feeling. (Especially when you’re like me, needing Death himself to pay a visit to slow me down…) It also puts into perspective what is and is not important. You know it’s a bad sign when you need three days of rest to return to sociable.
So what can be learned of this? The main thing is obvious: don’t burn candles at both ends. It’s hard to keep perspective on this when there’s so much you want to do, such as lose weight, date, cook, clean, write, watch TV, movies, concerts, perform, direct, and so on. I’ve been pushing myself, trying to meet deadlines so that I can build up a good name and a good reputation, so that people actually have want and need and not “oh, well, it’s here,” to visit my sites and projects. Yeah, I won’t lie: I’d like to be able to live comfortably off of my projects, but I would rather be able to get them out there than keep them couped up in my head until I can. Some of the stuff I am doing is exactly that: build ing a name.
But, I can’t do that from a hospital bed. I can’t do that dead.
I’ll try to have stuff ready by June. 🙂 Keep your chin up, everyone!
And now, for some more needed ZZZ’s…
